Was für ein Kajak! Das @prijongmbh Dayliner S scheint die perfekte Wahl für Julia zu sein. Vielen Dank an das kompetente Team von @denkoutdoor für die freundliche Top-Beratung. Die lange Anfahrt aus Thüringen und die Stunden bei euch haben sich echt mehr als gelohnt.
Wir konnten es natürlich kaum erwarten, das Kajak auch gleich auszuprobieren und hatten nach den letzten Regentagen gestern auf unserem Homespot, dem Hohenwarte Stausee, die Möglichkeit dies zu tun. Chapeau!

Worth it!
But you'll never know unless you try and find out. 
This is why we often choose the more adventureous option to discover a famous destination like in this case the seven sisters in Norway / Geiranger Fjord. 99% of all visitors come via speedboat from Geiranger or just see the beauty of the fjord from the quite expensive ferry while crossing from Hellesylt to Geiranger. 
And if there are paddlers, their preferred start is also Geiranger as it is just a 10km return trip from there. 
Paddling all the way from Hellesylt and back makes it to an challenging 30km mini-adventure , facing headwinds and waves for almost half the distance.
But this allows us to time it in a way to reach the falls when most of the others have already left and the annoying sounds of the speedboats have faded away.
Very nice ambient then to enjoy - when the evening-sun diffracts on the steep cliffs of this amazing UNESCO world heritage site.

Already a few days  ago - nice but challenging bike tour to Kjosfossen.
Almost 50km roundtrip from Flam and over 1000 meter elevation gain.
Most other cyclists just did the downhill part after they climbed the way up with the railway (Flambahn) and rented a bike for the way down.
Not our style, of course.

Top of Scandinavia, top of Norway.
Of course, many of my climbing or alpine friends do know most of the highest peaks of the central Europe countries, but pretty sure almost nobody  knows the name of the highest peak of Norway and Scandinavia...
Galdhøppigen!

And as there are too many comfortable hikes from different huts to the 2469m summit available, we were looking for a real challenge to value the mountain in a special way.
We gave it a try by a little 'fair means' and skipped the huts at all. We started at 4:15am at the entrance of valley and cycled 18km and 700m elevation and took all the necessary gear (which isn't a lot to be honest) with us. We reached Spliterstulen hut at 6:00 and locked the bikes there. We hiked up via the Svellnose summit and Keilhaus Topp summit to the top.
We did well and reached Galdhøppigen after another 3,5 hours. Actually not all too bad for the ~1400m elevation gain, but more important was the fact, that the crowds were far behind us. So we had our peace to enjoy the beauty of this mountain just ourselves (okay, with two others but this is absolutely not much).
And when it started to become busy after a while we just moved to the southwest summit which is about 30m lower. Nobody will disturb there for hours as everyone is focused to the summit itself. Even if that means to share with hundreds of people. Strange...
At the end of the day we climbed 4 summits and made a 50km roundtrip with  over 2000 meter elevation gain.
Chapeau!!!

Driving the Kystriksveien strongly reminds us to the Atlantic Ocean Road - just on a much bigger scale. The only thing we miss here a bit, is the good weather and the sunsets.

The famous stavechurch in Heddal ist the biggest of its kind in Norway. The wodden construction is over 1000 years old and still about 1/3 of the tarred pine-tree beams are from this time. Just amazing to visit this place.

Julia is scouting the trail on cedar creek through the flooded Congaree National Park. The Ally Expedition canoe easily offers space for us and the bikes to roll back to the camper - the 23kg of the canoe (when taken apart) can be carried in a big backpack. #expedition #adventure #natgeoadventure #natgeowild #natgeotravel #canoe #congaree #outdoorwomen #outdoorliving #outdooradventures #allycanoe #canoeexpedition #findyourpark #nationalpark #southcarolina #usa #2bfree #wanderlust #travel

Nice hike to the Kjeragbolten. We found and made use of a very little time window within the constant heavy rain forecast over the past days around Lysefjord area. Got soaken wet on the way back, but that was worth it...

A secret of Colorado - the amazing Black Canyon of the Gunnison. More a narrow deep black gap rather than a canyon - the gunnison river formed one of the most impressive cracks in mother earth´s surface. Fortunately most of the time you are almost alone while hiking or discovering the awesome viewpoints of this relatively remote National Park of western Colorado. #blackcanyonofthegunnison #blackcanyon #gunnison #canyon #climbing #rocks #mountains #wanderlust #traveling #2bfree #nationalpark #colorado #usa #neverstopexploring

Enjoying the very nice atmosphere of old town Danzig. There was a mix of street music, people, bars and street life while we were sitting in the windows of our Airbnb flat with a cold beer and one of the best views we’ve ever had. Perfect scenery.  #2bfree  #streetlife #danzig #gdansk #poland #city #architecture #oldhouses #timberframing

For sure, everybody knows the Grand Canyon - but who knows the 'Bleik Canyon' which is by the way twice as deep? 
I bet without using Wikipedia or Google there might be a rare number of people knowing this place and for what it's famous for. 
The underwater canyon starts about 15 km offshore from Andenes/Norway and is a nature habitat for many underwater species, such as sperm whales, humpback whales, fin whales and killer whales (orcas).

We were lucky and could see both, sperm whales and orcas during a 5 hour ocean trip with the very friendly and competent team of @whalesafariandenes Thank you for the great opportunity!

Very nice hiking here in Tiveden National Park. Combined almost all hikes to fill the day and finally got lazy legs.
Highly recommendable, but start about 6 in the morning to get the best views and escape the growd.
