Lapland III. Above the Arctic Circle

It wasn’t until our third day in Lapland that we actually went above the Arctic Circle. The first two days (you can find the photos from those days here and here), we just explored forested areas that were located under the Napapiiri (the Finnish word for Arctic Circle). But it […]

Sequoia National Park. Among the giants

After the first days in San Francisco and driving along the Californian central coast, the next step of my trip was Sierra Nevada. I was so looking forward to spending few days in the mountains! The plan was to travel from Santa Bárbara to Sequoia National Park. From there, visiting […]

Autumn walks

Living in the outskirts of Zurich has some perks. One of my favourite is having Uetliberg, Zurich’s own mountain, very close to home. It’s always a nice place to hike or simply walk when there is no other plan: there are a lot of paths in Uetliberg, some starting a […]
