    Looks great! It’s exactly the kind of stuff I would really like to do every single day!
    Last Year I went to Mallorca and climbed a small Mountain (maybe 300 Meters over the sea), but even that was amazing. It wasn’t like walking up a hill, it was really hard to get up there. But in the end, when me and my friends, stood upon the peak, the view was really amazing. The sun was about to set, we had a direkt view to the sea, where we’ve been just an hour ago and also the landscape from up here was great!
