Hallo,

schön, dass du unseren Blog besuchst.

2bfree, das sind wir, Julia und Mark. Zwei die sich gefunden haben, um zusammen die Welt zu bereisen und nebenbei ihre Leidenschaft für Natur und Abenteuer teilen.

 

Unsere ersten Kurzurlaube haben wir unter Anderen in Chile und Italien gemacht. Da wir uns danach immer noch gut verstanden, beschlossen wir ein Jahr Auszeit zu nehmen und gemeinsam Nord- und Mittelamerika unsicher zu machen. Um all unsere Outdoor-Aktivitäten, wie klettern, Kanu und Fahrrad fahren, ausleben zu können, haben wir unseren Fiat Ducato mit Sack und Pack verschifft. Dieser Blog entstand daraus, damit unsere Familie und Freunde uns auf unseren Reisen begleiten können.

 

Nun haben wir nach diesem Jahr natürlich viel Freiheitsluft geschnuppert und wollen den Blog mit noch vielen weiteren Reisen und Erlebnissen füllen. Viel Spaß beim miterleben!

Julia & Mark

Moldoveanu - 2.544m #🇷🇴
Not an easy one, but an highly recommended hike to the top of Romania.
The duration for the round-trip from Bâlea lake to the summit depends on your fitness level, but 12 hours should be calculated at least for the 27km and about 2000m elevation gain. Watch out for good weather forecast and start early. Don't overestimate yourself. Make sure you are in the condition for such a tour - as this is a ridge hike, about half the vertical meters are on the way back...

A morning coffee is for sure one of the best things on a camping trip in general. But if you are able to sip it high above Preikestolen (Norway) while the first rays of the morning sun warming the scenery and your face - that's kind of unique.

There is quite a difference in terms of temperature between late summer days in Norway and central Europe. But luckily there is also quite a difference of beeing away from the crowds here.

Once in a lifetime...
...visiting one of the climbing Mekkas of the world. 

Flatangers "Hanshallaren" cave for sure belongs to this places, known as climbing Mekkas. But not just because of Adam Ondras 'Silence', worlds first 9c (UIAA 12). The area offers far more than 'just' this. Besides climbing from 4c to 9c, there is a stunning landscape to explore in vertical and horizontal direction. And further more, the archipelago is a fantastic place for kajaking and fishing, too.

Felt already good to cross the Atlantic Ocean Road near Kristiansund with the Truck, but  cycling all the way and back right after sunrise was an great and lasting experience.

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.

Not our first encounter with a moose here in Norway, but the first where they gave us the opportunity to get the camera ready...
As we are still not sure what the difference between moose and elk is - maybe someone can comment this here.

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!

We are so happy that the weather here up in the far north gave us the chance of 3 sunny but cold days. We took a bicycle tour around Norways 2nd largest island Senja, about 150km and over 2000m elevation gain. We felt like the only people here as luckily the touristic season seems to be over now. We found this scenic spot directly on the granite slopes of the shore and could enjoy the last rays of the sun enlightening the cliffs of the island. Fortunately the sky kept clear and just after sunset we could see a fantastic aurora as well. Chapeau!

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!
