Little explorations

For a long time I had wanted to check out a bit more of the other side of the lake Graningesjön. Everytime I drive to or from Solleftea, I come by this one place on the road, where you have an amazing view on the lake and on what seems to be an island. I…

Västanåfallet

Not far from my home and basically on the way to Sundsvall is a waterfall. It is so close to the way, that you can already see it from the parking lot, while it is remote enough to offer an enjoyable feeling of solitude in nature and the forest. I had been curious about it…

Bjursjöberget Naturreservat

Recently I visited Bjursjöberget Naturreservat. It is very close to where I live and I have been there before. However it was hard to hike in the winter because of the deep snow in the forest, so I promised to myself to return when the snow has melted. This photo I took at the end…

Late autumn hikes

Recently I went hiking a few times in Ratingen. I found this great website with hiking routes in the area, so it was easy finding a good place to start. On most of the hikes it was raining and cloudy, so I didn't take as many pictures as I usually do. The ones I took…

High Venn

Recently I went hiking in the High Venn in Belgium. It is a highmoor in the Eifel and a super inetresting place. We went hiking on what was the rainiest day I experienced since my time in Sweden and in this area probably the rainiest day since May... Oh how I loved it! Even though…

Velbert and surroundings

Another hike I undertook with a friend led me to the area around Velbert. It was only a short hike, so I didn't take many pictures, but I just had to try out my new tele lens. Many pictures turned out blurry, because I have yet to learn how to handle the tele lens and…

Autumn hike in Hinsbeck

Last weekend I was hiking with a friend and we visited the beautiful area around Nettetal and Hinsbeck. We started the tour at around 9:00h in the morning and the weather was just perfect for a hike. The sun was shining and we had around 20°C, with a fresh breeze of wind bringing cool air.…

Skuleskogen Nationalpark

Today I went to explore Skuleskogen nationalpark, south of Örnsköldsvik. It is an amazing place with many different views. There is a lot of forest, but also very rocky terrain, which offers an entirely different flora and fauna. Usually this area is very humid and full of water, but there is a drought in Sweden…

Sonnenaufgangswanderung

Kürzlich bin ich mit meinen Wanderfreunden außerplanmäßig wandern gewesen. Wir waren nicht auf dem Sauerland Höhenflug unterwegs, sondern sind aus zeitlichen Gründen in der Heimat geblieben und einen wunderbaren kurzen Wanderweg in Ratingen gelaufen. Unser Ziel dabei war es, den Sonnenaufgang mitzuerleben und quasi mit der Sonne den Tag zu beginnen. Der Sonnenaufgang ist aktuell…
