I’m back from my 3 week vacation, I‘ve been travelling through north Norway, saw some pretty amazing views that left me in awe. :) Here’s a clip from this trip, enjoy! :)
On our last day we had 3 distinct stops. The first one was a lovely little city Mittenwald with wonderfully painted buildings. Sort of essence and a postcard of Bavaria. It’s also famous for the manufacture of violins, violas and cellos.
Next we went to Leutascher Gorge which is right next to Mittenwald but already in Austria. Very picturesque walk, slightly above 1,5km long. Maight not be suitable for people with fear of heights.
I enjoyed the walk very much but processing those photos was a nightmare. Whatever I did I wasn’t happy with the result (and I am still unhappy). I would have posted this a long time ago if it wasn’t for those gorge photos. Well, maybe one day I’ll re-do them. :) All the distortions are due to fisheye lenses.
Our last stop was in Ga-Pa (Garmisch-Partenkirchen) and a second portion of amazing paintings on the buildings. Enjoy. :)
So this Sunday I took advantage of a lovely, spring weather and decided to go hiking. I picked up Bystrzyckie mountains, as this is the region I rarely visit. The weather was amazing, just recently I was still wearing my winter jacket. The amount of snow was a little too much though, I ended too many times up above my knees in the snow. Photos aren't anything special, but here they are..
Ahh so much photos, so little time. '-.-
Here are few shots from my last mountain hike. Getting fit for Bulgaria trip next week. :) 21 km in 5 and half hour, not so bad. Plan was for 24 km, but I was feelin' kinda tired, so I shortened it up a bit. The weather was rather cold and windy but I deliberately chose that over sunny Sunday to have more space on the track.
Late in the 2013 I went with some work friends to the Karkonosze National Park (Polish: Karkonoski Park Narodowy). It is a National Park in the Karkonosze Mountains in south western Poland, along the border with the Czech Republic. On Friday evening, in the pouring rain, we took our first hike to the Strzecha Akademicka mountain hostel to spend the night there. In the morning the weather was much better.
On the Saturday, we went to Śnieżka (1,603.30 meters a.s.l. (5,260.2 ft)), after that we stopped for dinner at Luční bouda (Czech Rep. side). Quite nice place but overcrowded at that time. Then we continued our hike on Polish-Czech Friendship Trail. Weather got sunny and windy and the views were breathtaking. Mały and Duży Staw lakes looked amazing from the top of the trail. The Park is located in the highest part of the Sudetes.
We spent the night at Odrodzenie mountain hostel. Sunday welcomed us with huge fog and visibility just over couple of meters. We walked in it for about half a day, following our trail leading to Szrenica mountain (1362 m a.s.l.) from were we went straight down to Szklarska Poręba city.
