Annapurna Circuite Day 7

Manang Acclimatisation day! Today we can’t really get further in the Annapurna Track because of the acclimatisation. So how to use a free day as a hiker? Jep do another hike. A small group of 5 (Swedish guy and the 3 Argentinian people) are making the way to the ice lake near Manang. We need to walk back a few minutes and coming threw a monastery with horses. Than a really big climbing part starts, 1000 meters up. At the top there is only a small café where we get a hot tea and a small rest,then we walk further to the ice lake. And jep it’s a frozen lake that’s what I can say. Frozen lake! Not really spectacular but the few OMG! You can see the whole valley and the snowy mountains. On the way back 1000 m down, I can really feel my legs, they are starting with hurting like hell and i get a bit scared how i will survive the next few days. I don’t have my walking sticks today …

Annapurna Ciruit Day 5-6

Chame (2670hm) – Upper Pisang (3300hm) Another day, another life. That’s what I say! And what a day. The walking starts to be a meditation for me. I enjoy it soo much to have no Wifi, no problems. Only where can I sleep, where is my food and my water. Maybe also where can I have a shower but that’s it totally. I realize that we really don’t need that much to life and to be happy. I haven’t felt so free since a long time. I already think of a next walk I will do or another big long time adventure. But first I enjoy these amazing day. It is an easy day for walking, no steep climb and the mountain formations are spectacular. I feel like how I Imagen Mongolia a bit, some trees but mostly stones and rivers. The scenery looks more out of a film than real. When we are arriving at Upper Pissang we have one of the best tea huts ever. The few over Snowy mountains and the walk …

Annapurna Circuit Day 2-4

Lampata (ca.1300hm) – Jagat (1300hm) We are starting really early at 6.30 o clock. Everyone is awake to have a short breakfast and then start with rumbling. An Australian phrase what I have learned down there. The walking starts with a small hill, and we see some children making a shrine out of clay. The day is really good no rain and our clothes are dry. So we can get a lot of km’s inside. It is an easy walk some side tracks but really nice ones. Off course also again some bridges but at the moment I start to get used to them. I am afraid of highs and in the morning they are usually no problems. I am than still a bit tired and with a good breakfast and energy level, no problem. After we have passed some villages we make a turn to another side-track. On the map is staying marijuana fields (see the pic) we find some plants and a really nice cold water pipe where we make a small rest. …

Annapurna Circuit Day 1

How to come to the starting point? I was taking the local Bus what is a quite, bumpy and different experience to the normal bus I was used to. No one really was speaking English (I was really lucky that a nice guy who could speak fluent English was sitting next to me in the end). In the beginning they were speaking and pointing sometimes laughing at me but I just think that they were laughing about the only tourist in the bus. In the end yes I think they were laughing because I have had no clue what I will experience in it. Loud Indian music with movies sometimes, then you are at the destination and have no clue where you are really. They just throw you out somewhere. For my luck and I can believe for a lot of hikers too is Besi Shahar full of hikers. They just sitting outside in the sun and it easy to find a hostel. (I Don’t have sad that they are nice there 😉 )We couldn’t …

Travel and life!

The one thing no one can take away from you are these amazing experience while you are travelling. When you feel sometimes down, just smile. You are one of these lucky ones, who can travel and explore the world. How many people can say that ? Be happy also when you are stuck in the airport for hours, be happy if you stuck in a city or somewhere else. There is a reason why you are there. Nothing happens without purpose. I have so many times experience it. Everything has a reason and the universe or good or however you want to call it, it don’t want you to suffer. They want, that you are happy and love this life. You are an amazing person and everything what’s happen to you will form your personality and will show you a new perspective/way in your life. I am stuck in an airplane at the moment and just realise again how freaking lucky I am. When I am travelling, I am greatful of every day. I love …

2 Days in Kathmandu

My first day in Nepal and my first day in Kathmandu. I was a bit surprised! It was dark and heavily raining outside. The taxis driving like crazy and your only thought is “How I will survive that drive to my hostel!” But yeah you do and the next day I was waking up from a kiss of the sun in my face. It was early around 7o clock and so quite outside. My hostel was near the Monkey Temple so further outside of the tourist shopping zone what was really nice. I was searching the “quietness” after my busy working days in Germany. I have met already the evening before some people in the hostel and together we are exploring Kathmandu for a day. The breakfast was really good, some toasts with eggs and a honey ginger tea. We are 2 German girls and strolling around the area. We see our first monkeys, they are bathing in the sun, exploring the area and finding here and there some small food. The street dogs and …

Introduction to my travel style

What can I say to how I want to travel ? My travel style will be every time different. I don’t like it just to go to a country and visit in 1-2 days some cities and then off home again. It’s nice and it sometimes happens because of the holidays you get while you work but not that often. I will travel out of the norm. Out of my comfort zone. That means long-term travel and slow travel. I love to go hiking, biking, diving, horse riding and just explore the area and the culture. But to do that I must sometimes go to places where not Wifi or less Wifi is, that makes it impossible to post something on Instagram or here. Off course, I try to keep you up to date especially when I have Wifi again. So don’t be angry if I am offline for a while, something amazing is then waiting of you!
