Odenwald Hike: A Sea Of Rocks – The Felsenmeer

The Felsenmeer is an enormous agglomeration of huge rocks which is hundreds of millions of years old. Due to the continental drift this strange formation build up and shows us earth’s history ever since. At least since we are here 🙂 Some of the rocks have even been sculpted by the ancient romans. We have been there to explore the rocks and the surroundings.

Trip to the Bavarian Alps: Kampenwand

Today we had to meet our nemesis: A short stretch of about 15m with only a rope above the abyss. Just a hint: swearing helps a lot.

And after the descent, as it was Sunday, there was even some Blasmusik (a bavarian band playing traditional music on brass instruments).

Wallberg Tegernsee

Trip To The Bavarian Alps: Wallberg am Tegernsee

In a kind of kamikaze action we drove 650 km on friday night from Berlin to Rottach-Egern south of Munich to take part in a vertigo class. I highly recommend the useful lessons from our trainer Heike, who was a Höhenängstler (someone who has Vertigo) herself once, which makes her very credible.

Vertigo is not gone after two days but at least I know what is happening inside of me and what I do right or wrong in the moment of truth. The rest is training she says. And in fact: My confidence concerning the abyss has already increased slightly.

All the stress is forgotten when I’m standing on the top of a mountain and see the snow covered mountain tops of the near Austrian alps.

Los Riscos

GR 249 Gran Senda de Màlaga, Los Riscos, Cartajima

Technically speaking I quit the Gran Senda de Màlaga some time ago and I do some hikes wherever I am. Currently I’m in Cartajima, some kilometers south of Ronda at the wonderful Refugio hostel.

I really feel “at home” – if one can say that being on a journey – for the first time since I am here in Andalusia.

Today I went up a mountain to Los Riscos which are some kind of strange jurassic rock formations just without dinosaurs.

Afterwards I met a caravan club from the Netherlands who took me with them to the smurf village wich was painted in blue for a movie. The inhabitants decided – after they had some busloads of visitors from China and all over Europe – to leave it like that.

After that I walked back to Cartajima through a buzzing valley where a little not very shy boar crossed my way.
