ACTIVE ADVENTURES


Without a travel guide or a travel website you probably would not know what you can visit in a country or a city. During our trip we don't have the goal to visit all the tourist highlights, but we will certainly encounter a number of them. We like to tell you about the most beautiful sights, practical tips or a special experience in a country. We always do that with the sustainable idea in mind. Some details are worthy of being special and hidden. On this page you will find general travel tips about beautiful places, but also insights about the way we travel. For example, How much money do you need for a world trip , what is self supported travelling and why do we register dead animals? Many more questions are answered in our blogs.

Are you looking for tips for traveling by bike or on foot? On the pages CYCLING INSPIRATION and HIKING INSPIRATION you will find all kinds of nice routes and tips.
