Keep focused on the step in front of you. Nothing else matters.

Quote by Bear Grylls

As Bear Grylls says, keeping focused on the next step is one of the most important things when you go hiking.

When I was 8, I joined the local scout club. It wasn’t the first time for me adventuring the local forests. My father always took me with him to collect some mushrooms or to checkout the secrets and hideouts of those forests. But it was actually the first time I started to learn what is essential in surviving and respecting the nature.

On the annually summer camps we went hiking for at least 5 days with our group leader. I recognized how beautiful and quiet the nature can be. After nearly 10 years of those scout experiences, I dropped off my hobby due to graduation and work. Last year I began together with a good friend of mine to plan our first trip together to build up this hobby as a big part of my life as it was.

That’s it for an introduction so far. Checkout the details of our Alps trip below to learn what we experienced.

Best regards,
