Wild camping in Serra da Estrela, Portugal 2016 (Summer in a VW campervan VI)

After the amazing Boom Festival 2016, it was time again for silence. Whoever thought silence and nature are boring, think again.

Huge rocks, the ice cold air, the vast darkness of the night, the thin morning clouds and a few hours later the burning hot sun: they all speak their own language and to me it seems if you listen well, they reveal cosmic secrets.

We parked the van at a viewpoint up near the highest point of Portugal, took as many blankets and sweaters as we could carry and headed out into the rocky wilderness of Serra da Estrela (the Star Mountains), a nature reserve with absolutely stunning views.

We prepared food, played music, slept under the starry sky and woke up with sore backs but deeply impressed by the vastness of nature around us.

This is Life.
