About Me

My Life. My Journey. My Way.

Hey there, my name is Johanna and I am the creator of this blog.

I am a 23 year old German girl with a passion for traveling.

This blog is about my attempt of thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in the United States of America.

So far I spent quite some time abroad, living in different countries for shorter and longer periods of time. But I never attempted something similar to this before. So if you feel like it, you are more than welcome to follow along my journey on this blog.

Why do I want to hike the Pacific Crest Trail?

This is obviously the most common question I was confronted with in the last months. The answer is simple. I want to. That is all.
May sound like a simple and easy answer to me, usually it just confuses the people I say that to. Why would you want to do that though?
Well it is true, I am definitely not known as the world greatest hiker. But I love expanding my comfort zones. As mentioned in the above paragraph I do love to travel and I have been to amazing places and meet insanely awesome people. And included in all that traveling was hiking. I started to enjoy hiking more and more over the course of traveling until I completely fell in love with it, when I lived in New Zealand for a longer time period.
So I started looking into hiking more and finally I am where I am, about to start my biggest adventure so far. The attempt of thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.
