Snowy trips

I survived two awesome multiday trips. The first trip crossed Germany, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic and Poland, lasted 4 days and in the end we hit an insane 3500 km. Together with Martin Widlund and Andreas Swane and straight through snowblizzards, narrow forrest roads and horror penzions in the middle of nowhere. Even though it was an extremely tight schedule we visited almost every location on the list. I had a blast. Thanks guys.

Just a week later a 3 day trip through snowy mountains and asbestos filled tunnels with mister Lucas "Photoportee" and Norbert Löv. I have never seen so many snow and accidents while driving. Driving 300km over snow covered roads at night dimly lit by my car's headlights is a very scary experience and not very good for your neck and shoulder muscles :) But it all was so wrorth it. 

2 epic journeys and lots of stories to remember !
