    Checking out the pulse of Amsterdam and climbing Excalibur

    We had one big goal for our visit to the Netherlands; to climb one of the worlds tallest artificial climbing walls, Excalibur in Groningen.  We had seen so many pictures of Excalibur on social media, so we had to see it live and test it. It was fun, high and windy! It was an exciting experience, and both of us made it to the top. We stayed at a campsite…

  • Dinner and diamonds in Belgium

    Our original plan was to spend a couple of days in Belgium and to check out the capital city, Brussels. After some research, we changed our mind and went to Antwerp instead. Antwerp is a must to visit; a fashionable city most famous for all the creative, artsy people within the fashion and diamonds industry. There are urban cafes and restaurants on almost every corner. We spent the day in…

  • Sightseeing Trier

    Birthday, climbing and sightseeing in Trier

    Miriam wished for her birthday to be tourists in one of Germany’s oldest towns, Trier. She also wanted to keep her tradition of climbing on her birthday, so this was the perfect opportunity to check out the bouldering gym, Bloc Chocolate. Yes, you heard it right, bouldering and chocolate. The owners of the gym just happened to love making cakes and climbing. So why not combine that? This day was…

  • Climbing in Luxembourg, the fairy tale forest of Berdorf

    Again, we only planned to stay for a couple of weeks but ended up staying for a month. It was love at first sight. The climbing and hiking in Luxembourg and the area of Berdorf, or little Switzerland as it’s also called, is incredible. A must experience for everyone passing this small country – climber or not. In Tarifa, we met a traveling couple from The Netherlands, Peter, and Iris. They…

  • Service Roka Werk

    Every home needs some maintenance once in a while

    It’s hard to believe that it’s already over eight months since our last visit to ROKA Werk in Germany. Every home needs some maintenance once in a while, especially one on wheels. Our adventure is soon coming to an end, at the end of July we’ll be back in Norway. Therefore, we had a pitstop in Germany to make sure that the Airstream is in perfect condition and safe to…

  • Jungle & Fairytales in Alsace

    After bouldering for over a month, our fingers were itching for rope climbing again. As we were slowly heading back to Roka Werk in Germany for service on the mother ship, we left Fontainebleau and drove east towards Strasbourg. A friend of ours told us that Kronthal near the border to Germany has some beautiful and hard routes, so we found a lovely campsite not far away, in Vilsberg. We…

  • Tourists in Paris and Versailles

    Even though we were quite engaged with the bouldering in Fontainebleau, we had to spend some days as serious tourists in Paris. Christoffer’s mum was visiting us in Paris, so we left the mother ship for some days and stayed in an apartment with her. We also took the train from Fontainebleau to Versailles together with Miriam’s parents. Can’t go to Paris without taking pictures in front of the Eiffel…

  • The bouldering paradise – Fontainebleau

    Isn’t it just fantastic that in one single trip you can experience the Eiffel Tower, and climb in one of the world’s most famous climbing destinations? Fontainebleau has over 30 000 bouldering problems on quality sandstone rock! And it’s only an hour by car outside of Paris. Our stay in Fontainebleau has been the month for challenging our personal best, take the tourist role to new levels, and established new…

  • Girona

    Game of Thrones vibes in Girona

    After our month in Siurana, it was time to leave Spain and slowly begin our return back to Norway. Our next big plan was Fontainebleau in France, just an hour outside of Paris. But first, a pitstop in Girona on the Costa Brava coast, a region of Catalonia in northeastern Spain. Girona is known for its medieval architecture, and as Game of Thrones fans, we were excited to walk in…

    Climbing in Siurana

    Siurana is a small village in Catalonia situated on a cliff’s edge in the Tarragona mountains. The view is just spectacular, not to mention the limestone cliffs, which makes Siurana a climber’s paradise. It’s understandable that this place has been one of the world’s best climbing crags for decades. Here you can watch some of the strongest climbers in the world sending super hard routes, like the famous La Rambla…
