About me

Welcome to my homepage about traveling and ultralight backpacking.

I'm a blogger and since a few years on worldwide hiking trips. I would like to share my way from a traditional backpacker to an ultralight backer.



A small amount of gear is necessary to be prepared for my hiking trips



Here I will publish articles about my used gear.



There are a lot of unessesary gadgets out there. In this category I will write about some useful electronics for the outdoors. 



Beeing on the trail means that you are off the grid. So keeping your devices charged is a difficult task. Even with solarpanels you have to calculate your energy consumption, the time between charging on the grid, the weather and other factors. To extend your possibilities solarpanels could be an option. In this category I will review some solarpanels which are used by me. I will test the weight, energy generation to identify when a solarpanel is useful and when a normal powerbank is the better option.


Powerfilm Lightsaver

Over the lasts months I was experimenting solar chargers to keep my electronic devices charged while I’m on Tour.  During my research I found the Powerfilm LightSaver. The LightSaver is a mobile charging solution, which combines a solar panel with an integrated battery pack in a small package. This Package weighs 137 grams or 5 ounces and suits perfect the ultralight backpacking approach.



I was interview a few weeks ago. The interview was held by Laarni, one of the blogger from MightyGoods.

The interview was about the different aspects of ultralight backpacking. I answered questions about the gear I usually carry, the gear which is non ultralight but still carried by me and what are my favorite destinations.
