STORIES OF A HIKING OUTDOOR GIRL.

Welcome to my blog! I’m Mona and I’m an outdoor girl. I love visiting our local boulder gym and make multiple trips throughout Europe for hiking and exploring.

Check out my latest stories about outdoor activities, hiking trips, bouldering or the latest gear and gadgets I’ve tried.

So is more expensive always better? I've bought the La Sportiva Ultra Raptor and Quechua FH500 Helium trailrunning shoes and brought them with me to Slovenia to test them both. Which trailrunners do I prefer? This is my full and honest review. Trailrunners for hiking So lets start off with telling you why I switched from hiking boots to trailrunners. I loved my Salomon hiking boots and I still have them in case I need them. I follow...

Okay, let me start off by telling you why we moved our plans around from going to Oberstdorf to Slovenia for our honeymoon. We have been to Oberstdorf for 2 times in the past year (read about it here, and here) and we absolutely love it there. Two weeks before every trip we make I begin to check the weather forecast daily. It was clear that Oberstdorf wasn't such a good idea based on the...

It has been 2 months since I've started bouldering. My climbing progression since day 1 hasn't been unnoticed. Not only physical, but also mentally! When I started out I didn't climb higher than 2 meters because I was too scared to go any higher. Next to being scared all the time, I didn't have the strength to keep me on the wall most of the time. Climbing and dealing with my fear of heights So I've been...

As I've mentioned in my top 5 hiking gear and gadgets of 2017, I really love my Jetboil Cooker Flash! I would really like to give you my honest review and tell you why you should bring it on your next hiking trip. Marvelous and highly practical design Let's start off with the design of the Jetboil! It's small, it hardly weighs anything and everything fits into the cooker perfectly. The cooker is wrapped in neoprene so...

I love hiking and camping gear and gadgets like I've told you in this blog. There is a lot I don't own yet and is still on my wish list. Since I try to be a minimalist I only buy what I really need (or love). So here's what I think I'll be needing for all my trips this year. Here's my 2018 gear & gadget wish list. Hiking Hiking pants - I'm working my ass off,...

So I've written a blog about adopting a stray dog already, but there might be a lot of things you'll have to do and consider before you can take him or her with you on your outdoor adventures. Some stray and/or rescue dogs aren't socialized as well as they should be. Some rescue dogs have been in shelters for a long time and won't be used to walking on a leash, or walking long(er) distances...

So it's almost march and spring will be on our doorsteps before we know it. It's also the time I'm starting to make my outdoor plans for 2018. It might be a bit late, but some of them have been on my mind since the past 2 years. I for one can't wait to explore these adventures this year, and of course I'll write all about them in the future! May - Oberstdorf part 3 (Germany) So first...

So when I say I started hiking in 2016, I would be lying just a tiny bit. The first time I really went hiking was years before that and not planned at all. I went hiking in Rurberg around the Obersee. It was near to where I lived back then and it was a beautiful and warm day. I really wanted to go for a walk. It turned into an unplanned 16 km hike. I...

So apparently bouldering games are well known in the bouldering world. Since I'm new to bouldering, I'm also new to bouldering games. I've come across them while browsing trough Pinterest so I decided to give them a try. Here's how I think about 5 bouldering games. 1. Add On Add on is a game where you start in a start position, or with a sequence of hand moves, foot moves are open. The first climber then adds...

So we've had our fair share of hiking fails during our first year of hiking. We didn't really plan our trip to the Mullerthal trail, we didn't do training for longer distances and I forgot to properly check the map in Oberstdorf (part 2) to see if we would hike around or over a mountain. Which is a big difference of course. So I want to tell you all about our hiking fails so far, so...
