Day 74: daily routine

Friday, 25 August 2017 Today's kilometers: 40 Total kilometers: 1759 Haven't seen any hikers today. At this point I can tell that a portable music player seems critical to me.

Day 42: lost

Monday, 24 July 2017 Today's kilometers: 19 Total kilometers: 1041 This day continued being perfect. At least until two hours into the trail. Our vegan lady started a bit early and we thought we could speed up and see her later on. Unfortunately we got a bit lost, climbed a peak we weren't supposed to... Continue Reading →

Day 35: the end of Kungsleden

Friday, 14 July 2017  Today's kilometers: 17,8 Total kilometers: 878 Today we had less rain then yesterday and we where so close to the end of the northern Kungsleden. So the day was pretty relaxed. The trail finished with some great views and so we arrived at the hostel sometime early afternoon. First thing we... Continue Reading →
