We did quite a few hikes in August – however some tan lines from the day we hiked to Grintovec can still be seen on my legs and arms today! Nontheless, this was one of my favourite hikes of this summer. Maybe because we didn’t really plan it and spontaneous decisions usually turn out great. After we hiked to Kokrsko sedlo from Suhadolnik and had our coffee …

You will hear many members of our family say, that my cousine Lara is a mini-me. Both having long legs we look a bit alike, but we also both love our dogs, as well as adventures and share little fear of heights! So, Via Ferrata hike was on our bucket list for a while.

I guess that’s why I still long for snow so much and am looking forward to it every year. So when I was visiting my hometown last weekend …

This January has been very generous with sunny weather, the only thing we’re missing is snow – I’m crossing my fingers for some snowflakes by the end of the month. We visited the Julian Alps on Sunday, as we have yet to discover many of its beautiful corners. We usually prefer visiting Karawanks and K. S. Alps because driving to the starting points will take less time (read …
