First Camping Vacation 

20 days to go until our vacation finally starts. I am actually counting the days.

We will fly to from Frankfurt via Amsterdam to Salt Lake City and then the fun begins. Its going to be our first camping vacation. I admit I am excited and a bit nervous. This is going to be our home for a little less than 3 weeks.


It was not easy, at least for me, to decide where to go or to at least decide for a certain regoin. There was too much choice. After initially aiming for only Yellowstone we decided against it. There is so much more to see. This is the route that we have decided to go for. Exciting!!! 

We will start in SLC than head south to Zion NP via Coral Pink Sand Dunes SP to the North Rim of Grand Canyon. Then on to Lake Powell and Monument Valley and north again via Dead Horse Point SP to Dinosaur National Monument, Grand Teton NP to Yellowstone and finally back to SLC. 

Any recommendations for this area? Any good hikes, good photo spots etc? I am looking forward to your tipps. 

Getting ready for Iceland…part 3 

Iceland is supposed to be expensive, thats what everyone is saying. As expensive has a different meaning for everyone we figured lets just get something to munch on for the road and in case we are lare and there is nothing for supper some emergency dinners. We will go to a supermarket while in Iceland, thats for sure, not just to stock up on some supplys but also because every time we visit a new country I find it utterly interesting to go to a local grocery store or supermarket! 

As you can see guys we are kinda excited about this upcoming trip 🙂 

Getting ready for Iceland…part 2 

Part 2: 

After we were satisfied that we will have dry feet while in Iceland we gathered our camera stuff. As we both will take pictures and in case one of our cameras decides to stop working we will take our olympus omd e-m 10 and our canon eos 50d. Together with some lenses,tripod, nd filters and spare batteries our backpack will be full 🙂
