Great Wall Trek

I so appreciated to spend those days close to the Wall and not just to “fly in” for one day. This enables me to get a bit of a “feel” for the country. To be with the Chinese crew also was a privilege I won’t forget. Our tour guide gave us valuable insights. I am thankful that I could be part of this challenge, it was worth it.

Danube Walk

Austria's Wachau Valley centred around the majestic Danube River is blessed with an ideal climate where the many orchards and vineyards produce some of the finest wines and apricots in the country. The terraced hillsides lead to imposing castles ripe for exploration, while the charming towns below offer wine tasting and excellent cuisine. Traversing forest roads and hiking trails this walking adventure entertains a true appreciation of the UNESCO heritage listed region between Krems and Melk, with its character filled towns and historic buildings and a community that is devoted to good food and wine.
