Saturday June 30. I left the outskirts of the German city of Munich, with the Polly the collie and several boxes of groceries and my hiking gear in the car, and drove naked all the way to the Austrian town of Radstadt, in the Niedertauern region. I dressed to meet the hut proprietress who kindly … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2012 – Saturday
Thursday July 05. After breakfast, we sat at the hut waiting a short while for the group to come together and then headed off up the piste past the Trinkeralm to join the main trail along the easy ridge above. As we passed the top of the ski-lift, a couple passed us with the usual … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2012 – Thursday
Friday started slowly with us losing one car, but finally gathering successfully at the Vordergnadenalm, some half an hours drive from our hut, where we could start the trail towards the valley ahead. We set off along the flat valley floor and remained dressed this time until we passed the Gasthof and car park at … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2014 – Friday
Wednesday saw us setting off directly from the hut and reversing the route through the forest. We undressed and the talk was easy, and the walking a breeze, as we started, unusually, by going downhill back to the now-dried-up lake below. Once there, we zig-zagged up using the forest roads through the trees on the … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2014 – Wednesday
Thursday started with Sandra, Horst and Andrea, all going for an early morning swim in the pool by hut. They were determined to enjoy their swim to the fullest so quite naturally they had their morning coffee in the pool as well! The days’ hike started off quite well, although the rain clouds were gathering … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2014 – Thursday
The Saturday was a race to remove all of our things and to basically tidy the house before the main cleaners arrived. It took a couple of hours for people to depart in dribs and drabs, depending on who had to drive where, and who was able to offer lifts to those in the greatest … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2014 – Saturday
The Sunday began too slowly for some, with one half of the group heading off up the hill behind the hut for a morning hike around the local area. The rest of us waited until after lunch before trailing down to the river below, which we followed down the valley bottom. A little light rain … Read moreNaked European Walking Tour 2014 – Sunday
Olle describes his “First Real Nude Hiking” (book extract). Now we all are natural naturists out on a hike. We are immediately filled with a sense of freedom, joy and harmony.

Many photos, on this site and others, especially of women, (usually) receive positive complimentary comments. On the face of it, this is a good thing. One posts a photo, the person/people in the photo are pleased to receive positive feedback and everyone’s happy. However, there is a school of thought which takes offense to even … Read morePhoto compliments or offensive leching?
The alpine sun blazed down as we set off across the bridge over the Rißbach river. I stripped off almost immediately and stuffed my clothes into my rucksack. Polly, the Collie, and Susi, the Pekinese, scampered about looking for sticks and sniffs. Although Sandra and I had been on a couple of hikes together already, … Read moreA naked hike over the Vördersberg
MrJeeper: I don’t understand having trans-gendered people on the site or even having it as a choice of sex on the profiles. It is not “NATURAL” in the least bit to be taking hormones to become something you aren’t. Richard Foley: I can see where you’re coming from, Bob, and sympathise, but we try not … Read moreStanding up to righteous bullying.
We’d set off for a local hike, both the dogs in the van, me driving naked as usual, and Sandra as passenger, trundling along through a local town, just outside Munich, chatting and although watching the road, probably going a little quicker than we should have been. All of a sudden, out steps a policeman … Read moreDriving naked into a police speed-trap

An extract from the World Naked Bike Ride book: Running your car in an enclosed space, such as a garage, will surely kill you in a very short period of time.

An extract from the World Naked Bike Ride book: Oil is also used to produce the very food we eat, even if we don’t eat the oil directly. Think about what fuels the tractors to plough the ground and manage the ground during the year: manuring, seeding, weeding, harvesting.

Motivated by Ernest’s excellent Monopod review I’d like to provide a short review of the device I commonly use. For stabilizing my compact digital camera I find the camera-clamp from Langhans Konstruktion GMBH the perfect solution. The camera thread, which fits all standard tripod mounts, swivels cleverly within the jaws of the clamp. Combined with … Read moreProduct review – indispensible camera clamp

Naked folk across the world decry the puritan censorship of mainstream socialmedia networks, yet continue to use them because of a paucity of options. Now there is a true alternative, designed especially with naked people in mind.

You’d think that people with a common interest, such as naturism, naked cycle rides, naked hiking, naked protests, and the like, would be able to support one another’s endeavours and projects. Instead, there seems to be a petty mindset reminiscent of town council meetings full of jobsworths. The prevailing attitude appears to be that if … Read moreFUD in naked communities
