Hiking with distant views to the sea, climbing sweet limestone cliffs and swimming in the 23°C warm Mediterranean in December - Cyprus has lots to offer for those who are weary of rain, darkness and snow in winter! I was able to escape to this beautiful island in early December and enjoyed the hospitality, sunshine and beautiful nature.
In the early Autumn I made a trip to Switzerland, where I not only made over a dozen new friends but also got to explore with Visit Switzerland & the Adventure Travel & Trade Association the sustainable adventure travel possibilities of Ticino, the Valais, Andermatt and Interlaken Regions! Here are some impressions to make you wanna pack your bags & hop on a train to Switzerland 🇨🇭
Small countries attract Martin and me. Often overseen because of their large neighbours, small countries fly under the radar. Which we love, as that way you get to hike often in relative peace on magnificent trails, with views which put larger trails to shame. The Route 66 and Liechtenstein-Weg are two such trails which don’t need to hide - superb infrastructure, inspiring views, friendly locals and the possibility of hiking through a complete country make Liechtenstein a world-class hiking destination!
