The best time to think about research is hiking time!


Jul. 2007 - Aug. 2007
Website: from Munich to Venice (Website in German)

This was the first time I was crossing the alps by foot with Valentin, a friend of mine. During this hiking trip, I also got caught by the fever of long-distance hiking


Jun. 2008 - Aug. 2008
Website: From Munich to Trieste (Website in German)

The 2nd long-distance hiking trip again started in Munich. This time I went to the alps to follow the red Via Alpina to Trieste.


Jun. 2010 - Sep. 2010
From Munich to Monaco (Website in German)

Well... after the 2nd hike to Trieste there was still the remaining red Via Alpina to Monaco to hike. So off I went!

GR11 - GR10

Jul. 2014 - Oct. 2014
Pyrenees: GR11 and GR10 (Website in German)

The alps are really pretty to hike, but I wondered about other areas with possible long-distance hikes. This hike showed me the Pyrenees. First on the Spanish side following the GR11 from the Mediterranean sea to the Atlantic. Then, back on the GR10 on the French side to the Mediterranean sea.

Pacific Crest Trail

May 2018 - Aug. 2018
Pacific Crest Trail (Website in English and partly German)

Why I did this trip? Someone told me that this is the longest long-distance hiking trip (regarding distance) world wide. So I went off this one and experienced an amazing, unbelievable hiking trip through areas of the states which are breathtaking. Literally! There were plenty of wild fires ;-)
