๐Ÿฆƒ AUTUMN COLOURS ๐Ÿฆƒ Sun is low Shining through leaves A golden sea Of wilting trees Amazing mountains Grey eminence Standing in the back Firm as a rock Guides us Protects us
๐Ÿšฒ ESCAPE ๐Ÿšฒ My bicycle is my most used vehicle. It is fast enough to get to work, to the bakery, the supermarket, to the mountains or around the lake. And it is slow enough to experience my environment, to feel nature. However, car drivers are not that much into bicycles. Two days ago, a trucker shouted at me when I overtook him at a red trafic light. Later that day, an old man stopped at a roundabout, pulled down his window and shouted at me again: "You stupid bi**h, f*** off!" I have lots of experiences like this, and mostly I have them with truckers and old men. I cannot understand how especially our German pensioner can act like this. Don't they have time to not be stressed and furious? I haven't done anything wrong. But for them it is even a failure to exist. On my way to work, I have to ride 12 kilometres all along the main road, uphill. You can imagine the quantity of emissions that I am breathing in. It is healthier to go by car. But I don't want to drive every metre. What is it with us that life has to be comfortable every second? Why can't we make any sacrifices for our environment? It doesn't hurt, it isn't a big loss. It's just being a little bit aware. Most of the people, especially in traffic, are so stressed and rude. A load of bad energy that makes me sick already in the morning. I don't ride along the main road anymore. I take the way through the forest. It's longer, darker and the floor is wet. It takes much longer to get to work. Sometimes even there you can find cars, honking and rushing, no matter if it's forbidden to drive this way. But there are only few of them. Mostly I am on my own. Only my bicycle and me. The great escape. ๐ŸŒผ #naturephotography #natureshots #naturegood #earthgallery #splendid_earth #outdoors #outdoorlife #naturelover #wanderluster #roamers #optoutside #getoutside #lakelife #getoutstayout ย  #liveyouradventure #artofvisuals #roamtheplanet #germanroamers #rei1440project ย  #wildnernessculture #rsa_outdoors #folkscenery #folkgreen #discoverearth #hikingadventures #mountainlife #backcountry #bestmountainartists #mountainview #wonderful_places
๐ŸŒผ NOT JUST A STOPOVER ๐ŸŒผ Lienz in Tyrol has never been on my bucking list. Recently, we had a stopover in Lienz on our way to Slovenia. It is half the way and was therefore perfect for our bike trip. The hotel Holunderhof was so nice, we highly recommend it (attention, no ad, not sponsored ๐Ÿ˜œโœŒ๏ธ). In the evening, we went across this bridge into the centre. We were hungry and saw some stands in front of the church. They had different types of local food. While wondering where we could pay, they just invited us to eat with the community. Such a nice experience. Lienz was a great start into a wonderful 4 days trip to the south. See you again, lovely little city ๐Ÿ‘‹ ๐ŸŒผ #rei1440project #optoutside #artofvisuals #wonderful_places #roamtheplanet #wildnernessculture #getoutstayout #purplepassport #liveyouradventure #getoutside #outdoorwomen #rsa_outdoors #femmetravel #girlswhotravel #folkscenery #folkgreen #discoverearth #VibesofVisuals #radgirlslife #moodygrams #wanderlust #travelloversofinstagram #citytrip #traveling #biketrip #lienz #traveltheworld #thegreatoutdoors #mountainview #germanroamers
๐Ÿ’ฎ FROM ON HIGH ๐Ÿ’ฎ Flying. Freedom. An overwhelming feeling. On top is where I want to be. With the day's last sunrays in my face. Even in winter the day is long up here. Sun is intense. Wind is intense. Everything is intense. It's extreme. And it's harmony at the same time. From on high. This is where I want to be. ๐Ÿ’ฎ #naturephotography #natureshots #naturegood #earthgallery #splendid_earth #outdoors #outdoorlife #naturelover #wanderluster #roamers #optoutside #getoutside #lakelife #getoutstayout ย  #liveyouradventure #artofvisuals #roamtheplanet #germanroamers #rei1440project ย  #wildnernessculture #rsa_outdoors #folkscenery #folkgreen #discoverearth #hikingadventures #mountainlife #backcountry #bestmountainartists #mountainview #wonderful_places
๐Ÿ‘˜ PYJAMAS PARTY ๐Ÿ‘˜ Have you felt overdressed or underdressed before? It happened to me last week on our tour around Lake Chiemsee. The typical bike trip on a lazy Saturday afternoon, 60 kilometres, no mountains. The path leads all along the lake and then makes room for moorlands. ๐Ÿฆ‹ This is where we stopped, flashed by this beautiful brownish landscape. I wanted @morenito.del.norte to take a picture but didnโ€™t really like my โ€œbike suitโ€ โ€“ a combination of old ๐Ÿ‘– and an old ๐Ÿ‘š. Sorry, I always ride like this and hopefully no one recognises me. ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ Anyway โ€ฆ Lucky me: I had some new clothes with me as I bought them 20 kilometres before at an outlet. Unlucky me: with clothes I mean some pyjamas. I decided to wear them in the picture, combined with a bunch of lovely white flowers that grew alongside the track. And here is the result. Would you have identified my clothes as pyjamas? ๐Ÿ˜…โœŒ๏ธ What is your favourite "fashionista story"? ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŒผ #splendid_earth #outdoors #outdoorlife #outdoorwomen #wanderluster #hiker #getoutstayout #roamers #optoutside #getoutside #getoutstayout #likeamountaingirl #liveyouradventure #bestmountainartists #radgirlslife #mountaingirls #roamtheplanet #wonderful_places #lifeofadventure #illgrammers #visualsoflife #rei1440project #artofvisuals #rsa_outdoors #discoverearth #folkscenery #discoverearth #VibesofVisuals #folkvibe #folkgreen
๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธGO YOUR OWN WAY๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ We have millions of possibilities. We can define ourselves new everyday. Does that help to find ourselves? I don't think so. We really have to listen carefully to our heart. A soft voice that is almost unhearable in the clap of thunder of the information flood. Stop. Meditate. And then go your own way. ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #naturephotography #natureshots #naturegood #earthgallery #splendid_earth #outdoors #outdoorlife #outdoorwomen #naturelover #wanderluster #roamers #optoutside #getoutside #lakelife #getoutstayout ย  #liveyouradventure #artofvisuals #roamtheplanet #germanroamers #rei1440project ย  #wildnernessculture #purplepassport #rsa_outdoors #folkscenery #folkgreen #discoverearth #moodygrams #bestmountainartists #stayandwander #modernoutdoors
๐ŸŒžWARM AND COLDโ„๏ธ No, it is definitely not normal to swim in lake Chiemsee in October. But today, I canโ€™t help but jump into the blue sea. The sun warming my back. In front of me those grey mountains, covered in early morningโ€™s mystic fog as if it was a filter. It is 9 am. Breakfast is waiting in my bag, just bought at the local bakery, still warm. A short swim โ€“ really short though. And I run out of the water again, towards the morning sun. Breathless. A feeling of warm sun rays on my skin, in contrast to the pinpricks of the ice cold water. Warm and cold in a wild mixture that makes me feel so alive. Now letโ€™s get home and have some freshly brewed coffee. Good morning ๐Ÿฅโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฏ #chiemsee #splendid_earth #outdoors #outdoorlife #outdoorwomen #naturelover #wanderluster #roamers #optoutside #getoutside #lakelife #getoutstayout ย  #liveyouradventure #radgirlslife #artofvisuals #roamtheplanet #germanroamers #rei1440project ย  #wildnernessculture #purplepassport #rsa_outdoors #femmetravel #girlswhotravel #folkscenery #folkgreen #discoverearth #VibesofVisuals #moodygrams #modernoutdoors #likeamountaingirl
๐ŸŒธ AT LAST SIGHT ๐ŸŒธ I have never done a trip alike before. East Greenland is rough and uncomfortable, wild and chaotic. It is dependent on the weather, extradited to nature. And if you travel there, you have to deal with these conditions, like the Inuit do. It is amazing how they survive at this place that couldnโ€™t be ruder. In the end, I am glad to get away again from East Greenland. This time without any problems as the weather conditions are perfect. I learned a lot from East Greenland and its culture. It took away worries and let me grow. I have a different look at things. The millions of little luxuries that we have in our everyday life. ๐ŸŒธ #hike #hikingadventures #outdoors #outdoorlife #outdoorwomen #naturelove #naturelover #wanderluster #hiker #mountainlove #mountainlife #getoutstayout #backcountry #roamers #optoutside #getoutside #hikelife #getoutstayout #backcountry #likeamountaingirl #liveyouradventure #bestmountainartists #radgirlslife #mountains #mountaingirls #mountainview #rei1440project #wonderful_places #roamtheplanet #wildnernessculture
๐Ÿ‘ซ DINNER WITH INUITS ๐Ÿ‘ซ Surprise in our camp in Tasiilaq: When we are ready with cooking, two kids from the village arrive. They feel at home instantly and stay for dinner. I am impressed how much they can eat! Afterwards, they leave us โ€“ just to stop 50 metres further and disappear in the tent of our neighbours, a French trekking group. More than one hour later they leave the French, after having a barbecue with them. Each of the kids carries a packed lunch for the next day. As they walk up the way to the village, they suddenly stop and throw the whole bags to the dogs. But why? I only have one explanation. In the Inuit culture, future doesn't exist. Nor does 'mine' or 'yours'. This is why planning seems to be very dificult for them. And this might also be the reason why the kids gave their packed lunches to the dogs. They must have been more than stuffed after having dinner with us and later the barbecue. So they might have thought that there is no need for more food. What a nice gesture of sharing. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜‡ #splendid_earth #outdoors #outdoorlife #outdoorwomen #naturelover #wanderluster #hiker #getoutstayout #roamers #optoutside #getoutside #hikelife #getoutstayout #likeamountaingirl #liveyouradventure #bestmountainartists #radgirlslife #mountaingirls #roamtheplanet #wonderful_places #hikingadventure #lifeofadventure #exploreeverything #illgrammers #visualsoflife #rei1440project #artofvisuals #rsa_outdoors #discoverearth #campinglife
๐ŸถGLACIER DETOX๐Ÿถ On our whole tour through East Greenland, we didn't drink neither tap water nor bottled water. We always took it right from the glacier. And it was delicious. Cold and clear. I have to admit that I normally drink a lot of juice, maybe mixed with a little bit of water ๐Ÿ™ˆ But in Greenland, I drank only water or tea. And I began to notice the taste of water. So good! Drinking only water and tea might be the reason why I lost four kilos in 14 days. I seem to have done some kind of detox without noticing it ๐Ÿ˜…โœŒ๏ธ . #hike #hikingadventures #outdoors #outdoorlife #outdoorwomen #naturelove #naturelover #wanderluster #hiker #mountainlove #mountainlife #getoutstayout #backcountry #roamers #optoutside #getoutside #hikelife #getoutstayout #backcountry #likeamountaingirl #liveyouradventure #bestmountainartists #radgirlslife #mountains #mountaingirls #mountainview #rei1440project #wonderful_places #roamtheplanet #wildnernessculture
๐Ÿ’DIAMOND SEA๐Ÿ’ The day is not clear at all. Clouds creeping around the icebergs, dark and heavy. Just an instant before dusk, the clouds suddenly rise and sun comes out. Iluminating the whole fjord, from the inland ice over there to our island. We stand here on a hill, watching this spectacle that seems so surreal. A moment out of a dream in a diamond sea. . #naturephotography #natureshots #naturegood #earthgallery #splendid_earth #outdoors #outdoorlife #outdoorwomen #naturelover #wanderluster #roamers #optoutside #getoutside #lakelife #getoutstayout ย  #liveyouradventure #radgirlslife #artofvisuals #roamtheplanet #germanroamers #rei1440project ย  #wildnernessculture #purplepassport #rsa_outdoors #femmetravel #girlswhotravel #folkscenery #folkgreen #discoverearth
๐Ÿ—จ๏ธ OPT OUTSIDE ๐Ÿ—จ๏ธ In Greenland we have no option. There simply is no inside. We have to deal with the cold and the humidity. But how good it feels to be that close to nature. Look at that sky! We are lucky with the weather and enjoy hiking the islands we choose for our next camp. The next time that I have an option, I will #optoutside again ๐Ÿ˜€ . #winterwonderland #outdoors #outdoorlife #outdoorwomen #nature #naturelove #naturelover #wanderlust #wanderluster #hiker #mountainlove #mountainlife #getoutstayout #backcountry #roamers #getoutside #hikelife #likeamountaingirl #liveyouradventure #bestmountainartists #radgirlslife #mountains #mountaingirls #mountainview #backcountryskiing #powderday #folkvibe #themountainiscalling #modernoutdoors
๐Ÿต PUPIK POINT ๐Ÿต Having a cup of tea with a view. One of the best views on the whole tour! Pupik island is full of treasures. When we get there, we think we have seen everything within 10 minutes. So wrong. Right behind our camp in the #wilderness , there is a narrow path leading to the summit of the island's mountain. The way is not really visible, in the end we just climb straight to the top. Up there we are welcomed by a natural swimming pool. It's a pity that East Greenland doesn't have hot springs. Anyway, good to have a bath after so many days of camping and kayaking. Even the possibility to wash myself feels like a little luxury. I want to keep this joy experiencing things that have become normal in real life. But now I am not in real life. I am on treasure island, jumping into cold glacier water for a shower. Yay!!! โœŒ๏ธ . . . #splendid_earth #outdoors #outdoorlife #outdoorwomen #wanderluster #hiker #getoutstayout #roamers #optoutside #getoutside #getoutstayout #likeamountaingirl #liveyouradventure #bestmountainartists #radgirlslife #mountaingirls #roamtheplanet #wonderful_places #lifeofadventure #illgrammers #visualsoflife #rei1440project #artofvisuals #rsa_outdoors #discoverearth #folkscenery #discoverearth #VibesofVisuals #folkvibe
๐ŸŒ„ GREENLAND IS GREEN ๐ŸŒ„ Do you know why Greenland is called Greenland? Actually, it doesnโ€™t seem to be very green โ€“ even at second glance. It was Erik the Red who gave Greenland its name. In 982, he had to leave Iceland for murder. He sailed west and discovered a country with fjords and green valleys. When he returned to Iceland after three years, Erikย brought with him stories of โ€œGreenlandโ€ โ€“ which was a more appealing name than โ€œIcelandโ€. He wanted to attract potential settlers and finally convinced lots of Vikings to move with him to Greenland. The Icelanders established two colonies on the southwest coast. This is where Greenland at times really is green. In the meantime, East Greenland is mostly white and blue. Only in summer, snow disappears for some weeks. Grass is growing and these cotton flowers that bring another shade of white to this mountainous landscape.
๐ŸŒผ FAVOURITE FLOWERS ๐ŸŒผ Every plant that manages to grow in East Greenland is a little wonder. The short summer, the cold, the rocks all over the place โ€“ it is obviously a dificult place to survive. I am especially fond of the cotton wool flowers. They seem to have found a way to get along with the weather conditions. Velvet growing in this rough country. East Greenland is full of these little wonders.
๐ŸŒซ FOGGY VIEW ๐ŸŒซ Fog follows us on our way through #Greenland . It was the reason for our two days late arrival. Some days after that, we couldnโ€™t leave #Tasiilaq for the #Sermilik fjord on time since we had to wait until the fog lifted. It is too dangerous to paddle in the middle of icebergs when mist is covering them. This morning, we had to wait again for some hours. Until sun came out and turned this grey world into an all-white and blue one. As we paddle to the village #Tiniteqilaaq , the fog already starts to come back. We climb the top of the local mountain and enjoy this special view. No cloud in the sky. The icebergs are lying down there in the calm water. Parts of them are still sparkling in the sun. And parts of them are wrapped in the drabness of the fog again. Time for us to head back to #Sarpaq . The scenery couldnโ€™t be more impressive.
โ„๏ธ MOUSSE AU GLACE โ„๏ธ Here's a secret: I love mousse and foam! A foam bath for example, which I miss so much on this kayaking adventureย ๐Ÿ›€ I also love mousse au chocolat. Or the foam on a cappuccino or a beer. Another three examples of what I am missing deeply on our way through East Greenlandย ๐Ÿ˜ฉ But instead I spotted another type of mousse: mousse au glace โ€“ ice mousse, at least that's what our guide calls it. When an iceberg bursts into pieces (and that happens all the time), the fjord is full of this mousse au glace. It is wonderful to paddle along these heavy snowflakes, lying on the dark blue water, blazing in the sun. A sea of snowflakes around us and icebergs in front of us. A surreal surrounding that burns itself into my memory. I wouldnโ€™t need the picture to remind this moment. But I am glad that I can share it with you and hopefully it expresses at least half of the magic it does in reality.
