Tour of 2018 – Day 25, August 20th 2018

Camp at the Hukejaure cabin The day started like yesterday ended, rain and wind. During most of the night, the rough wind shook the tent and there were several long and heavy rain showers, making it hard to sleep well. So grateful for the separate gear shed that let me keep all the wet stuff…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 25, August 20th 2018

Camp just north of Viddjajavri Wow, I’m so grateful to be dry and warm, this day was really rough weather wise.

Tour of 2018 – Day 23, August 18th 2018

Camp just north of Teusajaure cabin I woke up really early, just shy of 5:30, and started getting all my stuff together.

Camp at Saltoluokta Being more than half a day ahead of schedule due to the weather, I had decided on beforehand to take one day completely off here in Saltoluokta.

Camp at Saltoluokta mountain station Once again I woke up early to the sound of rain falling on the tent, the weather had changed completely overnight and the beautiful clear evening last night had been replaced by thick fog and rain.

Hike around Robberg outside Plettenberg Bay, ZA, January 5th, 2019

Totally recommend this hike around Robberg, my friend Jim did the shorter one by Witsand, while I rounded the entire peninsula. The trail was mostly well marked and easy to both find and walk, stretches are rather steep and You need to take Your time, yet as long as You're reasonably fit, You should be…Read more Hike around Robberg outside Plettenberg Bay, ZA, January 5th, 2019

Tour of 2018 – Day 20, August 15th 2018

Camp along the Kungsleden 5km North Sitojaure Again I wake up early, and again to the sound of raindrops falling on the tent. Not very alarming at 6 am, I’m in no hurry to leave, yet looking out and seeing I’m literally camping in the clouds at 1100m was a little more disturbing. As I…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 20, August 15th 2018

Table Mountain on the India Venster Route, January 2nd, 2019

After a really good nights sleep, I felt the urge to compensate all my sitting on a plane the day before with a good chunk of hiking. Staying at a hotel downtown and with local transport being more of a joke, it seemed just right to start by walking the few km's up to the…Read more Table Mountain on the India Venster Route, January 2nd, 2019
