Every Step a Misstep
With his eyes always on the summit, Harald Nachförg often stumbles on his way to get there. Back at his desk, he writes about the challenges and aches and pains of a passionate hiker.
»I tread quite lightly, but my feet are slightly tilted outward. You can easily get caught when you hold your hiking pole close to your body. And if your hand is caught in the loop as well, you’re soon spinning around the pole like a go-go girl.«
Whether he is getting tangled in his trekking poles, experiencing a sudden onset of mountain fever while resting on a bench, or getting stuck in snowshoes and has to be dug out with shovels: When Harald Nachförg talks about his experiences on the mountain, there is not a dry eye in sight. Hilarious and a great pleasure to read.
