Hiking Adventure from Tallinn to Lisbon!
La Bretagne!

La Bretagne!

Coming from England, Brittany doesn’t represent such a huge cultural shock. This part of France has always valued its celtic roots rather than the French influence, which is felt in the local language, music, and architecture. Stone is one of the main elements in this region, be it as natural sculptures along the shore or as… Continue Reading

English Riviera and more Cliffs

English Riviera and more Cliffs

  After leaving behind the emotions and ups and downs (literally) of the Jurassic Coast, we could expect an easy home stretch until Plymouth, right? Wrong. The last five hiking days in the UK presented as many challenges as the weeks before. The ferry lottery (will it be working or not)? Check. Climbing up cliffs… Continue Reading

Zaki

Zaki

On the coldest weekend of our hike, Zaki drove through the night to meet us for a 16 km hike at the South England Coast the next day. We started on icy trails going up and down in the coastal forests, enjoyed his delicious tuna sandwiches on the go, because it was too cold to… Continue Reading

Jurassic Coast

Jurassic Coast

  When we had mentioned to anybody that we were planning on hiking along the Jurassic Coast, the reaction was always the same: “Oh, it’s a gorgeous place! But veeeery difficult to hike.” The latter usually was underlined by an upward and downward motion of the hand, drawing a steep curve in the air. We were… Continue Reading

Hiking 14 km on muddy paths, climbing several high cliffs with heavy storm and rain was not an easy task – good we could reward ourselves with… Continue Reading

Ticket to Ryde

Ticket to Ryde

  Holidays were over and we were sitting in the train back to Portsmouth, singing happily: “We’ve got a ticket to Ryde” (you can hum the Beatles song “Ticket to Ride” at this point). In London, where we had celebrated New Year, we had already purchased the tickets for the hovercraft going to Ryde, at the… Continue Reading

South Downs

South Downs

“The Downs… too much for one pair of eyes, enough to float a whole population in happiness, if only they would look” Virginia Woolf, diaries After hiking along the gorgeous white cliiffs and enjoying the dramatic views at the North Sea coast during our first days in the UK, we didn’t expect the South Downs to… Continue Reading

Bart

Bart

Bart has hiked huge parts of the E9 already and has been following our adventures since the beginning, so it was a special pleasure to meet him in person and spend a hiking day together. He drove from the South of Belgium to the coast at Nieuwpoort, from where we hiked 24 km, crossing dunes… Continue Reading

While in Belgium, we received a visit from Zurich, and had a great hiking companion for 2 1/2 days. Our friend Gigi travelled to Oostende and hiked a total of 56 km with us. We defied the wind together, discovered the Belgian coast, and even crossed the border to France! Continue Reading
