HikeVentures is a blog about Outdoor Photography and Adventures by Patrick Dormischian and exists since 2012. I write in German and in English.

I was born in 1978 in southern Germany (Ravensburg) near the Alps where I was hiking and skiing especially in Austria. I moved to Finland in 2006 and I am living in Järvenpää. Previously, I have also lived in other Finnish cities such as Vaasa, Turku and Helsinki. I have also lived for several months in Australia where I was diving with sharks and explored the blue mountains. Moreover, I have worked in the Swiss mountains for several months which was a perfect place for snowboarding and skiing adventures in powder snow. To put it in a nutshell, I have visited around 30 countries. If you are interested to know more about my camera gear then you could have a look here.
