Hi extreme city visitors!
Last weekend Marlene and i drove flew to rome in italy.
We checked in at thursday in the san jouan guest house in the mazoni region.
At the evening we went out for walking around and visted the colloseum and the fontana di trevi by night.
what an amazing view…
after a great dinner we ended in our guest house.
on the next day we bought the rome pass for 30€, this cool because you can drive with the bus, metro and tramway for three days and visiting 2 sights are included.
so we visited the great colloseum and the pantheon. in the afternoon we visited the trastevere district.
on saturday we started very early in the morning and visited the forum romanum. you can feel the great history….
in the afternoon we went to the spanish stairs. there we found a lot of people there.
then we drove with the metro to the saint peter’S square. there we found a big queue who wants to get into the cathedral.
we managed to get into the cathedral at 4pm.
we ended the day after the dinner very early in our bed room because of the long walking…
that is another exhausting sport 😉
on sunday we went to the cupola of the saint peter’s dome. here you can see great views over rome.
there we could marvel at the frecce tricolori.
in the afternoon we visited the maxxi museum.
on monday our last day we visited in the morning the vatican museums.
that was a great ending for our trip to rome.
you can see such amazing frescos, especially in the sistine chapel.
thanks for this great trip in a very fascinating city of rome.
ciao bernhard

after a great afternoon we drove with the train back to constanta.
we did not do the same fault , when we didn’t bought any drinks and food for this long train trip.
there were no restaurant waggon on the romanian train.
but on this train trip back we wery fully equipped the the essential stuff 😉
back at bucarest we checked in into our hostel and enjoyed the nightlife in this great city.
it’s also called the paris of the eastern.

i took many pictures from the northwall of the eiger. so if someone wanted to climb this famous mountain just give me an email. i will send you the detailed pictures.
in the evening we drove to lauterbrunnen to the schützenbach camping whích was very quit.
the crazy thing there is the valley has 72 waterfalls and it is famous for their bigwalls for basejumping and speedflying.

Speedflying Pribitz and Messnerin at Grüner See

August 3rd, 2012

Hi extreme fullmoomspeedflyerwashers.
Last two days summit surfers patrick, bernhard, tina and marlene drove to tragöss for hiking and speedflying the pribitz and messnerin.
we did one flight (in)to the grüner see and after drying our glider we hiked a second time to the summit of the pribitz.
we did a bbq at the pribitz(1579m) with the best sausages – the käsekrainer. 😉
the fullmoon was shining at our basecamp.
so we had wonderful views to the grüner see.
on the next morning the fullmon got down in the western side and the sun rises up at eastern side.
so we very so lucky to get the first sun rays. yihaaa.
sleeping in such a beautiful area without a house or tent is a great thing.
just give it a try.
patrick and me did a good morning flight into the grüner see which was excellent for getting a beautiful holiday started.
then we hiked up to the messnerin (1835m) where we looked for some great speedflying rides. but the wind was southerly so we flew down to the parking lot to the southern direction. we did some great relative flights. thanks for this great feeling.
This area i can recommend for a trip!
have much fun and enjoy your holidays.
