Teplice Rocks Rocks

If you go to The Czech Republic and want to experience something very extraordinary from mother nature you have to visit Teplice Rocks in the Eastern part of the country close to Poland.

I have never seen anything like this. Wild rock formations of sandstone.

The lake in the beginning of the trekking route is just amazing. Start your walk from Adrspach.

For a trekking warm up. Go around the amazing lake.

The last part of the route is more demanding…

…..but it is all worth it.

Maybe you see some trolls on your way…

Tomorrow we will climb Snezka, the biggest mountain in The Czech Republic.

That´s it and then the mandatory swin in the ocean.

Sapiens 2

Homo Sapiens is primarily a social animal. Social coorperation is our key for survival and reproduction. It is not enough for individual men and women to know the whereabouts of lions and bisons. It is much more important for them to know who in their band hates whom, who is sleeping with whom, who is honest and who is a cheat.

Over the years, people have woven an incredibly complex network of stories. This accumulates immense social power for humans. The kinds of things that people create through this network of stories are known in academic circles as fictions, social constructs or imagined realities.

An imagined reality is something we all have and that everyone believes in, and as long as this communal beliefs persists, the imagined reality exerts force in the world.

Ever since the cognitive revolution, Sapiens have thus been living in a dual reality. On the one hand, the objective reality of rivers, trees and lions; and on the other hand, the imagined reality of gods, nations and corporations.

International Training 2

Today was the day for a long run. The weather was just perfect for kicking ass in the nearby park close to the beach, a run in the sand on the beach and then finish with a short swim in The Mediterranean.

When there are no outside training stations you have to make your own with what you come by. Lifting stone, lift yourself in the trees and jump up and down on the stonehenge. Push Ups you can make everywhere.

There was a good variety in the landscape. Some places I ran between palms and other places it was like running in the desert.

Then it was time for beach running and the cold swim.

Even though it is very hard to run at the beach, I think it is the best place for me to run. In the sand you really strengthen your joints and muschles, and if you doo it bare feeted then you really give yourself the wellness that you deserve.

Guadalest – A Paradise In The Mountains

Guadalest is located at a distance of approx. 20km from Benidorm although the road, winding up into the mountains, makes it seem far longer. Once upon a time, the place was only accessible on donkeys´ backs.

Situated on a mountain overlooking the valley of the river Guadalest, the town is surrounded by the mountain chains of Sierra d´Aixorta, Sierra de Serella and Sierra de Aitana. The way there leads through pine forests, citrusgroves, nispera and almond trees the sight of which makes for a very pleasant journey.

With a number of permanent residents in the region of 300, Guadalest is tiny, but explodes with tourists who come to see the main attractions: the reservoir which is formed by the river and the picturesque town itself, divided into El Arrabel, the old town and the quarter of the castle, San Jose. Both parts are connected by a tunnel hewn into the rock.

Park your car on the public parking lot which has plenty of spaces, make your way to the surrounding parapet and have a first look at the tranquil and rather vast reservoir below, reflecting the surrounding mountains. You can walk towards the water on a clearly indicated path, stroll along a bit or even, if on offer, take a short boat ride on the reservoir.

Sapiens 1

I am reading a fantastic book called “Sapiens” by Yuval Noah Harari. It is a brief history of humankind.

Here is some of the things from the book I will share with you.

Fire

Gave us power

Farming

Made us hungry for more

Money

Gave us purpose

Science

Made us deadly

We wiped out the Neanderthals.

They were too familiar to ignore, but too different to tolerate.

Sapiens had the unprecedented ability to cooperate flexibly in large numbers. Ants and bees can also work together in huge numbers, but they do so in a very rigid manner and only with close relatives. Wolves and chimpanzees cooperate far more flexible than ants and bees, but they can do so only with small numbers of other individuals that they know intimately. Sapiens can cooperate in extremely flexible ways with countless numbers of strangers.

That´s why the sapiens rule the world, whereas ants eat our leftovers and chimps are locked up in zoos and research laboratories……

Skov bliver ryddet for at skaffe foder til danske svin

Den globale sojaproduktion breder sig og forårsager afskovning og intern fordrivelse af lokale i Sydamerika. Men trods politiske løfter om det modsatte afslører ny rapport en direkte forbindelse til den danske landbrugsindustris import af soja.


Mange grise kræver meget foder. Så når danske landmænd skal mætte de omkring 32 millioner danske svin, så de en dag kan blive til flæskesteg og frikadeller, bruger de proteinrig soja.

Men en ny rapport fra Verdens Skove og den globale miljøorganisation Mighty Earth, som udkommer i dag, viser, at en væsentlig del af den soja, de danske svin spiser, kommer fra områder, hvor store skovområder er ryddet, og hvor lokalbefolkningen udsættes for sundhedsskadelige giftstoffer og fordrives fra deres jord.

»Vi kommer ikke uden om, at dansk landbrug indirekte eller direkte bidrager til den katastrofale udvikling, fordi vi har en enorm svine- og dyreproduktion,« siger Gry Bossen, politisk konsulent i Verdens Skove, som er medforfattere til rapporten.
