This particular picture is not a recent one. Far from it – it was taken before we set out for our 3week hitchhike-trekking-adventure through the Pyrenees in 2015. Since then, we’ve been to many other destinations but not much felt as exciting as this unique trip. Which is why we’re doing it again: Today, we are setting off for a 10-day trek through the biggest connected wilderness area the Alps still have to offer: The national park Val Grande is comprised of 146 km² and the only signs of humans are abandoned villages and faded tracks. It’s an insider tip amongst Italian hikers who call it ULTIMO PARADISO. My darling – tie your boots and shoulder your backpack! I’m in the mood to find out if this natural gem can truly live up to its reputation… Ahhooooouuuuuuuu!!

  2. Looks like your an even bigger fan than my parents! Cheers for that, we really appreciate it 🙂 Seems like you have started a new blog project yourself – we’ll follow! And yes, you should REALLY visit Val Grande, it’s been such a great trip. We just got back to Berlin (feels way to busy and crowded…), so the first stories etc. will follow soonish…
