We are a German-Austrian couple living in Northern Sweden, exactly at the Arctic Circle, “Europe´s Alaska”.
We are working on Sustainable Development, Renewable Energy and Climate Change issues for about 20 years.
Wolfgang´s most recent project is to bring the “Nordenskiöldsloppet”, the first, longest (220 kilometers) and hardest (Cross Country) skiing race ever, to life again after more than 130 years:
We love outdoor life and traveling, the AT has been a dream project since reading Bill Bryson´s A Walk In The Woods 10 years ago.

Luther Vandross version of “The Impossible Dream”

French version “La Quete” by Johnny Hallyday

German version with Josef Meinrad, Vienna 1969

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause
And I know if I’ll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest
And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
