  • Jungle & Fairytales in Alsace

    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 […]

  • Tourists in Paris and Versailles

    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 […]

    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?

    Alpes de Haute Provence – Gorges du Verdon

    Our idea was first to find a campsite near Gorges du Verdon and stay here for the whole week. After watching the weather forecast and taking the fact that a lot of the campsites are closed now, we decided to go for a day trip from Nice instead. Gorges du Verdon is worth every second […]

  • Provence, Côte d’Azur – Antibes

    Provence, Côte d’Azur – Antibes

    After a short visit in Italy we had to get to France because Miriam’s sister, Line, was coming to visit us in Nice. We found a nice campsite just outside the city in Villeneuve-Loubet. Antibes was only an hour walk from the campsite so we had a few days hanging around in the Old Town, […]
