You’re a naturist and are you constantly being banned and blocked by people who don’t understand you? What is it about the naked human body that sends so many people into paroxysms of censorship and puritan fist waving? It seems that it’s ok to post images and videos of violence and bloodshed, but let a … Read moreLet the #NATURIST in you COME OUT!
I was banned by Facebook, and content removed, accompanied by the threat of a permanently disabled account, because of the above photos, apparently because I violated their TOS. This is simply not true, and I believe this is more likely to be a case of the morally hypocritical puritan minority imposing it’s views on the … Read moreDevious Facebook censorship

We were travelling around the north of England, when we camped in the Lake District for a few days. The opportunity was too good to miss, and we managed to get a naked visit to the stone circle at Castlerigg, near Keswick, in. This was promptly followed by a naked hike along the stone walls … Read moreNaked at Castlerigg stone circle in Cumbria
A week at a naturist camping resort in Croatia – sounds idyllic, doesn’t it? Well, very nearly, however, and in the words of Robin Williams’ indefatigable Genie: “there are a couple of quid pro quos…”. Let’s start with the positive. The Adriatic coastline around Vrsar, our camping destination, is quite simply beautiful. Steep Limestone clifflets, … Read moreKoversada naturist resort report
The Naked European Walking Tour (NEWT) 2016 based itself at a hut close to Dienten just south of the HochKönig mountains in Austria.
Well, we have one group in an over-flowing hut. We also have a tent group which will be mobile and is growing. Hopefully we'll meet up, as we successfully did with much merriment last year. The core team/s are packed and ready to roll.
There seem to

This article was pointed out to me on the apparent slide from nudist to FKK to brothel in Germany. http://www.newswise.com/articles/clarkson-university-professor-speaks-on-shared-culture-of-nudism-in-unified-germany
Ok, I've finally read this piece
to keep people up to date on progress/status: at this time the NEWT 2016 hut is full for the coming summer hiking tour. If you've not heard from us with a confirmation yet, then essentially it's too late for the main hut. We do mainta
Most of the hut group-B drove around to join Pascal’s hut group-A team on a hike near their hut. I drove Sandra to the station, as she had to leave mid-week, and Polly and I spent the rest of the day mooching around the hut. We took a tour around the local lake, checked out … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2015 – Thursday
The start of the week was a tad anti-climatic, as Sandra and I had to take the day off, and let the rest of the hut group head off with the tent team ably led by Roland. We spent the rest of the day chilling at the hut, taking a tour of the lake, and … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2015 – Monday
The day dawned bright enough, and we continued to be lucky with the weather. We started by heading up the hillside in the same region as on Sunday, but a tad more eastwards. The forestry trails opened out as we gained height and passed a small but amused mountain Gasthof in the higher raised valley. … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2015 – Wednesday
This year was a special year, as we had three (3) separate groups of naked hikers under way in Austria, all at the same time. One group was led by veteran Pascal from France who managed the larger group at a hut half-way up a mountain side. My group was based at a valley-level hut … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2015 – Sunday
We set off for a gentle hike into the woods of a nearby alp with low cloud brushing the treetops. First we followed a forest trail, zig-zagging steadily up the hill side, getting warmer as we gained altitude. After some time we reached a high farm, and behind a large clearing. Settling down for a … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2015 – Tuesday
Friday dawned with some grey clouds and a forecast of storms in the afternoon, so we headed across to the area behind Wiesbach where there was a low-lying area of good forestry trail hiking to be had. Setting off from the car park naked we found the easy
Monday July 02. Away by 8.45 and gathered everyone into various cars to drive down the long forest track and around to the town of Pichl. Parking next to a tennis court we walked up the road until we found the base of the ski-lift. As we walked through th
On Monday we drove to Maishofen, near Zell am See, parked, and set off north into the forest up the hill looming above us. Stripping quickly, the weather looked on us more kindly now and we were soon sweating as we toiled up through the pine forest. The advantage of being naked of course was … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2011 – Monday
The weekend had been wet and on the drive into the village of Otting, near Leogang, Chris, who I’d picked up in Munich, and I had serious doubts about the coming week, naked hiking in the alps around here with the rain and dark broiling clouds blotting out even the lower peaks. The somewhat grey … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2011 – Sunday
In the morning, we took our leave of Clifton, as Rudi-the-pirate kindly drove Humbert and I to the mainline train station in Hermagor, so we could return to our respective homes. On the way down we talked about how he enjoyed to living for most of the year off-mains high up at the cow alm, … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2008 – Thursday
The next day started with a steep climb to yet another high summer pasture. Doug and I set off first, and this steady 76 year old from New Zealand soon showed me what a mountain pace was. I had to ask him to slow down a bit, and he simply said this was his normal … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2006 – Wednesday
After breakfast, I walked up the streets in the rain. At Tienzens, I gained a farm track and stripped off quickly, so that I was now walking naked through the cool drizzle again. It was cold, because there was a slight breeze, but manageable if I kept my walking pace up. The tracks were excellent, … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2005 – Thursday
