Just before Christmas I went on a 2 day trip to Austria. At Traunsee, there is the Traunstein mountain, which is very popular among alpinists. I thought climbing to the top (only 1691 m) would be easy-peasy. Ha-Ha! I was wrong again!

At the beginning of this autumn I went on a two-day trip to the Tatras in Slovakia. I was attracted mainly by the less known part near Poland - the Western Tatras. The mountains are not as high as the mountains in the High Tatras, but they offer a unique adventure - crossing the Rohace ridge. Exactly, I was attracted to one of the most dangerous and challenging hikes of the whole Tatras.
Half-in and half-out of the water. I'm sure you know such photos. A girl in a bikini that dives a few feet underwater like an innocent and beautiful mermaid. And above the water level sunshine and palm trees. Photos of this type have been spreading rapidly on social networks in recent years. And they have success. Similar to drone photos. It offers a new way of story telling, a new point of view. But ... How are these cool shots taken?
Fairytale island state in South Asia in the Indian Ocean, which consists of an incredible 1.196 picturesque islets. What to expect? Is it just a hype or is it really one of the top beach destinations in the world? Let me tell you this - I'm not the kind of person who enjoys the heat. I love mountains, hiking and adventure. But ... I also love the Maldives.
