South Tyrol

South Tyrol is located in northern Italy, directly at the foot of the majestic Dolomites, and this is exactly the reason why I love this area so much. For the first half of a day you can have a good time hiking beneath mountainscapes along lakes such as the “Lago di Carezza” or the “Lago di Braies,” while enjoying a view on the enormous Dolomites.

Later on you can savor precious Italian food… the best pizza or pasta?  It’s exactly what you’ll need and crave after an intense hike. Particularly characteristic for this area is that almost everywhere you are, you can take a rest and enjoy the view of the Dolomites that peak to 3.343 meters high and never fail to amaze!

Valle Maggia

Have you ever been to a place where it felt like you were set back in time hundreds of years? Valle Maggia is a magical region in southern Switzerland, and it has a breathtaking landscape to fall for. Driving along the narrow roads will lead your way through cozy old villages with houses that are traditionally, completely made of stone in order to resist the mountain winds.

The green landscape combined with the mountain scenery in the background and this magical architecture create an unrivaled experience. Premium spots such as the “Valle Verzasca” or many mountain lakes, such as the “Robiei” will astonish you again and again.

My most favorite place on earth is without a doubt- Iceland. While driving along the roads with your camper, one moment you feel like you ended up in a green and vital area of moss that has grown for hundreds of years, and in just a blink of an eye later you find yourself in a dark and threatening looking area that is marked due to recent volcano eruptions.

Where else on this planet can you hike on glaciers, walk along the edge of a volcanic crater, enjoy the sunrays at a black sand beach while watching seals, and stroll through a green moss landscape feeding wild horses? And all this in only one day? This is Iceland.
