Trekking to the far end of the world - Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

Hidden away from the rest of the world, Torres del Paine National Park in Southern Patagonia, Chile is a beautiful gem that completely blew my mind during our 5 day trek last week. I still dream about it every night and can't wait to go back.

What is it about lighthouses?

I love lighthouses. And I know I'm not the only one. The attraction lighthouses has on me is equivalent to what lots of people feel when they see a brand new Aston Martin in the street or probably how a horse enthusiast feels when a proud Arabic horse is running across the fields in the sunset. There's something magic about them.

Green Adventures is not only about work. It's about a passion, not only for kayaking but for all the amazing things we can do in the outdoors. Last weekend I had a wonderful time on a mirror calm sea just outside my door step. fake rolex

Late report from the Paddle Expo

skapad 2012-09-30 i 'Green Adventures Blog'

 

During three days in late September (18-20th) there was a big canoe- and kayak show in the southern parts of Germany. Paddle Expo took place in Nuremberg, Bavaria, to be more correct. Here you'll find lots of canoe- and kayak manufacturers side by side with paddle gear producers and a whole gang of Stand Up Paddle Board companies. For a devoted sea kayaker, it's like Christmas eve when you walk along the isles full of fancy gear where ever you turn your head. But things are not for sale (thank God for that says my wallet) cause this is a pure trade show and it's not open to the public.

I went there cause I'm involved with a project throug the Scandinavian Outdoor Group (SOG) and we had a stand with a Scandinavian Bar to inform the Scandinavian and Nordic manufactureres who where present at the show that the SOG exists and that we could hopefully support the companies in their work with international business. Next year we hope to be able to create a Scandinavian Village, which is super popular at other big outdoor shows like ISPO Munich and Outdoor Friedrichshafen.

So here are some pictures from the show.

If you click them, they will be presented in a Light Box.

Palm Equipment from the UK (and one of my great sponsors) had an impressive stand with lots of colors and great staff.

Martin Kössler from SOG is burried in jobs that needs to be done. Or is he just dreaming he was in one the pictures behind him?

Lina Westerlund who used to work with Point 65 have changed jobs and was replaced by Filip. Sad but true. But Filip seemed to be a nice guy too.

I'm really looking forward to pick up my new beauty from Arrow Kayaks in a few weeks time. It's the one in the middle.
