This year we are planning again to visit the ITB, ISPO and the OutDoor Show to find new gear for our outdoor adventures, to have interesting chats with outdoor brands and destinations. However, we are also planning to meet other outdoor bloggers and to find interesting collaboration possibilities with outdoor brands as well. On our YouTube channel, you can find plenty of videos where we have interviewed different brands in the past years. Here is for example one video with the Scandinavian Outdoor Group.
Actually, one of the reasons why we blog is to connect with other likeminded people. However, we have also cooperated with a couple of brands. For example, in August 2019 we went to Japan to work with Niseko Tourism on a project where we created social media content (pictures and videos) and a blog post. We have also met other packrafters in Japan, which we got to know beforehand via our Instagram account.
We have also been on yearly packrafting meetups such as the Nordic Packrafting Roundup or the European Packrafting Roundup which are excellent events to meet up with other packrafters, learn about the latest gear or take a whitewater rescue course. For example, we have completed a Whitewater Rescue Technician Recreational course last year just before the European Packrafting Meetup.
Moreover, we are also connected to packrafters worldwide e.g. this year we have been paddling in the Grand Canyon and have been on packrafting trips in Russia.
About our photography and video equipment – we have a drone and professional full-frame camera and lenses. We also have action cameras, sliders, gimbals and waterproof housings for our DJI Osmo Pocket. We can cover a wide range of shooting environments.
We have also been studying Tourism Management at the Stenden University of Applied Science in the Netherlands and Konstantin is even teaching there nowadays tourism-related subjects. Patrick is recently finalizing his second Master’s degree at the Åbo Akademi in Turku (Finland) where he is studying Governance of Digitalization. His Master’s Thesis is about Smart Tourists in a Smart Destination setting.
So feel free to contact us if you want to meet us at the ISPO, ITB or OutDoor show or if you are interested in collaborating with us or just up for an outdoor trip somewhere in Europe or other places in the world.
