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

Top of Poland. An early start gave us about 30 minutes of silence to enjoy the beautyfull panorama of both the Rysy summits (high point of Poland and the slightly higher top located in Slovakia) and the High Tatra just ourselves.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
