Tobruk

Portland, I meant Portland, tobruk is just an anagram, right? So, we had a fabulous time in pdx. Great food, nice people. Our favorite hike was to twisted falls in the Columbia River gorge. It’s crowded on the first two miles but empties out afterwards. And you can just knock people off the path and…

Operation Mountain Garlic

Today’s our last day on Mt Rainier, we’re heading back to Vancouver tomorrow. But what a beautiful day it is. Not a cloud in the sky, perfect mountain weather for a serious hike. ☺ Our lovely host made us some fresh juice before we took off, apples, carrots, lots of ginger, and lots of garlic.…

Portland, rock city?

I really like Portland, Oregon. But I keep wondering – having seen for guys with led zeppelin t-shirts in the last two days, what is going on here? Some new disgusting hipster feature that has not been revealed in Europe yet? Two of those guys were really young, too, like early twenties. Je ne comprends…

Hawaii, a résumé. part III (fin)

Last stop: Kauai. Took me a while to wrap this up since, funny enough, I can no longer use blogger in chrome. Embarassing that google is unable to make their own browser run their own blogging platform. Time to move to a different service I guess. Google has started to suck anyway, after enduring a…

Hawai’i, a résumé, part II

Maui. Yeah. After the big disappointment of Big Island, I didn’t really have high hopes for Maui. But it actually turned out to be a little bit better than the Big Island. A lot of the same problems apply though: Most of the nice beaches are ruined, the US has raped the land and built…

Ich war in Hawaii dabei!

Ach ja – Hr. Kohl ist wieder so generös mit den 4-Buchstaben-Wörtern.So richtig furchtbar war es meistens nicht – irgendein Schätzchen hat sich meist gefunden.Treefrogs sind klitzeklein und übel laut – aber eigentlich angenehmes Hintergrundgeräusch. Berlin kann das schlimmer!Vom 4WD hängt nicht der Erfolg des Urlaubs ab, aber es ist einfach geil, einen zu haben.…

Hawai’i, a résumé

Well, well, well. Looking back with a couple of days distance I must say that Hawai’i was underwhelming. It was nice, no doubt about that, bur I certainly won’t be going there again and I think there are better places with less hassle and rules and regulations in the world. But anyway, let’s try to…

Finally, some fun

kauaipoipupoHinterher ist man immer schlauer. If I had known what I know now I would have limited our stay on Big Island to four days and spent more time on Kauai. This is much more „hawaiish“, much more to my liking. Gazillions of hiking trails and they are not closed because of „American Angst“ or…
