At the end of the day, the hardest thing of all is taking that first step. Overcoming that mental barrier. Getting rid of any fear, so that all that remains is the joy of roaming the mountains day after day.
Mountain Haunts, Mountain Homes
The snow cloaked the jagged mountains smoothing them into silky lines – ascents, descents, and unexplored peaks.

HOW WE ARRIVED IN THE DOLOMITES AFTER ALREADY 4,500 KM HIKING
Crossing Southern Europe on foot from West to East is a huge challenge. Since we started, 9 months ago in Portugal, we hiked something like 4,500 km across 5 countries.
