My departure date for the Fjällräven Classic is approaching rapidly and I've spent the better part of last week packing, unpacking and repacking my bag. It's been I while since I've set off on an adventure by myself and this one feels special somehow.

The last stretch of our month-long Norway trip was everything we hoped it would be. We were a bit worried that the last few days would feel rushed because we bought our ferry ticket in advance, but we had a great time.

Although it was a bit weird the first few days, we quickly learned to accept people's curiosity and when you … Continue reading Tale from the trail (11): helping hands
Due to some technical difficulties this post took a bit longer to write than I hoped, but without further ado: here is part two of our road trip through Norway.

Being in a country with such a different culture and language was challenging and has caused a fair deal of misunderstandings. My favorite one is the one … Continue reading Tale from the trail (10): short stay?!
I've been seeing a lot of questions regarding hygiene and more specifically female hygiene on trail. I didn't plan on writing this post, but seeing this is something a lot of women struggle with, I thought I'd share my personal approach. Whether you are planning a thru-hike that will take months, a bikepacking trip of … Continue reading Trekking like a girl: hygiene on trail
When we set of on our trip of a lifetime we packed everything we would own for the next year into our panniers. It didn't worry me to pack light, it almost felt like a relief. We had carefully selected each and every item in those panniers and would grow to love, or hate, them in the … Continue reading Tale from the trail (9): the small things matter
