St. Valentines Pants | Socks as a present for Christmas pants (long johns) for St. Valentines Day. Thats the reality of being a wife of an outdoorsman . However this time the pants are very special: Made for girls by girls. Thats how the Norwegian brand Kari Traa is advertising their outdoor stuff. And indeed the patterns on my base layer are rather sweet and female. And as it is 100% merino wool they are also very soft against the skin.  Love to stay hot is what is also said on the box and…

Strong wind and paddle | In my last post I showed you how I attempted to solve the problem with my paddle. Well it didn't last long. The wood I used was not too strong and when it came to paddling against the wind it snapped and I ended up with two pars again.  Good thing I had my Windpaddle (the sail) with me which still allowed me to enjoy packrafting at the estuary of the Rio Formosa in the south of Portugal. | #portugal #packrafting #thisispackrafting #packraftingportugal #hiking…

Sunset in Winter | A week ago we visited when the winter was still obvious we visited the Weerribben-Wieden National Park. Consisting of two parts that are managed by two land management agencies it is an interesting example of such cooperation. Do you know more such examples? | #netherlands #nationalpark #weerribben #hiking #sunset #tree

Old buildings and a yellow raft | Going back up to our car I held my head high and my packraft even higher - the sea shore there is not only full of sea shore shells but also of sea shore prickly pears. Marta caught me at the moment when the birds were flying over me. | #portugal #algarve #thisispackrafting

Old buildings and a yellow raft | My playground was the area near Cacela Velha an ancient town which is still dominated by a medieval church and an 18th-century fort. During the Islamic period this place was called Cacetalate Darrague and it also had a fortress built in the 8th-9th century to ensure control of navigation on the River Guadiana. However it is possible to suspect that there was a settlement here as long back as the time of Phoenicians. The current fortress was rebuilt at the…

Between the land and the sea | The estuary of Rio Formosa is a narrow strip of water between the cosy and the Atlantic Ocean which is influenced by the regular tides and the winds. It snakes through the sand and mud flats and helps to form numerable islets that grow or disappear with the tidal changes. The area stretches for dozens of kilometres from Faro in the West to past Tavira in the East. | #portugal #algarve #thisispackrafting #packrafting #packraftingportugal #adventure…

Wrong parts and DIY | One of the things that went wrong was also the problem with my paddle - when packing by mistake I took parts of two different paddles with me. You can imagine my surprise when I discover that on the shore next to the water. But I did it despair and decided to DIY out of the situation by joint two parts with a piece of wood that I found at the place. It did help ... for a while. But that's another story ;) | #portugal #packrafting #thisispackrafting #packraftingportugal…

Prickly pear and not-so-prickly packraft | Even though not all my packrafting dreams in Portugal came true I still managed to 'paddle' and sail the estuary of the Rio Formosa on the Atlantic Ocean cost . | #portugal #algarve #thisispackrafting #packraftingportugal #rioformoso #travel #travelling #packrafting
