  • 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…

  • Siurana

    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…

  • Mula

    Back in Spain – Plasencia, Bullas /Mula & Finestrat

    Our original plan after Lisbon was to drive back to Spain and drive the whole way to Siurana, a climbing paradise a couple of hours from Barcelona. After some windy and chilly weeks in Portugal, and minus degrees during the night just outside Madrid, we decided on a little detour back to warmer areas in Costa Blanca. We spent some beautiful days with climbing in Mula and went back to…

  • Hanging around in Lisbon

    For us, Lisbon has everything we’re looking for in a big city. We especially enjoyed the urban areas, with bars, restaurants, and small design shops. The old part of town is also super charming to walk around in, so colorful and romantic. Next time we’ll bring surfboards and check out all the spots just a short bus ride outside of town. If you have a car, we do not recommend…

  • Algarve

    Portugal – The Algarve Coastline

    Portugal was a new country for both of us, hence a must to visit when we’re this close. We didn’t plan to stay in Portugal too long, so we decided to skip climbing to get some rest and be 100% tourists for some weeks. First stop after crossing the border from Spain was the beautiful Algarve coastline. Driving skills & wild camping We quickly learned that camping (with a large…

  • Bolonia

    Bolonia – White sand dunes & bouldering

    One of the most beautiful places on earth? At least another little paradise, also in the municipality of Tarifa. Bolonia is most known for the white sandy beach with fantastic dunes, and some well kept Roman ruins. It’s also possible to drive to the top of the hill and enjoy a spectacular view of the sea and the beach. Here you can also find the big bouldering area! We didn’t know anything about the bouldering in Bolonia, other than it’s there and that we should drive up, up, up.…

  • Tarifa

    Tarifa – A little paradise

    During our six months of traveling in Europe, we have visited so many places with the potential to be our favorite, Tarifa is probably our winner so far. We love the beautiful and wild landscape you meet just after driving an hour from busy Marbella. And the white beaches packed with kiters, active people and beach bars in real surfer style are just right in our alley. It’s also lots…

  • Christmas in Costa del Sol

    After traveling for nearly five months, Christmas was coming up, and we had to decide whether to take a plane back to Norway or stay to celebrate Christmas in Spain. We decided to save money and the environment and celebrate it together in the Airstream. Even though we missed our family and friends during the holidays, it was an experience and a part of our adventure. During our stay in…
