From Squamish to Vancouver

The rain is crackling on my tent already since 4am. I creep a little deeper into my sleeping bag and hope it will get better till sunrise so I can prepare my breakfast and pack my tent in the dry.  Finally the drumming noise of the…

By on Sunday October 1st, 2017

In Whistler I stayed 2 days longer than initially planned. I have the feeling that I’m not yet done with this place. I definitely have to return one day.

After I checked out from the hostel I try desperately to get the synchronization between my GPS device and mobile phone…

Quick Update: Approaching Jasper

By on Saturday September 9th, 2017

Quick Update: made it to Fort Nelson

By on Wednesday August 30th, 2017

Quick Update: nearly 200km into the journey

By on Sunday August 20th, 2017

It’s hard to find the time to process all the impressions along the trip and write them down in the blog. The notes I started to write down yesterday evening already fill several pages and I didn’t even catch up completely. Posting everything in German and English adds an…

It’s getting closer. Today I received my last vaccination. So, my medical preparations for the trip are considered to be final now.

During the day I will move a lot of boxes from my apartment down the cellar with things I want to retain after my return. A lot of…
