Moraine Lake – The Dream of Canada

There may be a lot of other beautiful places in Canada, but the Moraine Lake has a really special meaning for me. Pictures of the Moraine Lake were the reason I decided to do my work and travel year in Canada. Like at many of those great places I’ve also…

Revelstoke – just stoked!

I didn’t mention this place in my reports for so long now, it’s really time to write about this place-to-be in Canada now! In Revelstoke, I spent eleven nights, more than in any other place over here, except Vancouver, where I had to prepare my road trip, obviously. I was…

The North Cascades – the Alps of North America

I really had a good time during Independence Day and set a good final point to my stay in Seattle. For now, I headed back to Canada. Indeed I didn’t drive the direct way but drove through the beautiful North Cascades and the prairies behind them. I fueled up my…

Seattle – Urban America

The first real, American, big city I visited was Seattle. I mean a really big city, I don’t count Anchorage as one. What should I say… Seattle really flashed me! What a fantastic town! So much multiculti and tolerance on such a close area. I absolutely didn’t feel like in…

Farewell in Vancouver – Taking stock of the first road trip

Farewells are awful. So far I displaced it, but now the time came, that I would separate from my travel buddy Moritz, as he would fly back to Germany. I would travel on alone for now. I haven’t spent a single night alone in my van, it was just normal…

Hike to the Mount Assiniboine – The Canadian Matterhorn

The time together with my travel buddy Moritz sadly was about to come to an end soon and it was the time to do a big finishing hike. For those asking how I came down from Alaska to the Rockies so fast … well, we were driving a lot. Of…

Bartlett Cove – Farewell of the Glacier Bay

What was really nasty about my trip to the Glacier Bay, was the fact that I had to wait four days at the Bartlett Cove until a ferry would take me back to Skagway. Not that it wasn’t nice there, but there was just not much to do there and…
