Tales from the Karwendel Alps

Those first minutes of a roadtrip, when everything is finally packed, you’re spitting cherry seeds out of the window and wonder about the adventures you are going to have in the next couple of days.

When Benedikt Soja, Lutz Eichholz, Scott Wilton and I took off for our trip to the Karwendel Alps near Innsbruck, Austria this June, we had no idea. No idea, that the trails were going to be so perfect. No idea, that on the first day, we’d lose Ben’s precious muni on a steep slope in the forest. And no idea, that we’d have to call a helicopter to get Scott back down from the mountain. In the end, all turned out well and we consider ourselves very lucky, not only because we have such great road trip buddies, who can live in a tiny van peacefully even after days without a shower.

We focused on filming rather than taking photos this time, so here are some snap shots and a short video recap:

The White Dress

When I am wearing my white dress for freestyle riding (or artistic unicycling, to use the proper term), the fabric that’s floating all around me in the air, makes me feel so elegant and light that I forget I am sitting on a unicycle.

I am happy the boys from LUUV asked me to wear that dress for our filming day. It had been sleeping in my closet after Janina’s and my pairs routine at Unicon 14 in Kopenhagen and the Team Horst video shoot in Vienna a couple of years ago. Welcome back, white dress, I have more plans for you already.
