Christmas & New Year events are obviously happy times to enjoy, not always! We decided to just have a small, cosy group of people in our home to celebrate with us. We had near family people, we had neighbours from both sides of us, we made it really clear that it would be ‘clothes optional’ too. … Read moreBeing investigated?

Original published on my blog. Come on, it continues to blow my mind, what is it really about being naked and nudism? We all have a body. All women are made the same way, all men too. Of course, some are fatter, thiner, bigger, smaller, darker, lighter, etc. However, we are all coming from the … Read moreWhat is it about being naked?
The question is legitimate. Why getting naked in front of others? Why doing activities entirely naked, like swimming, hiking or cooking? Many blogs, articles, and books provided answers, including mine with articles like 4 good reasons to be nude or 7 reasons why nude is better for social activities with friends. However, as I was preparing … Read moreAfter all, why nudism?
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
Waking up with the sun at around 5AM this early Spring morning, I went to the kitchen to get my first coffee. As every day, I did not bother to dress. I sleep naked every night, and rarely bother to get a piece of cloth to breakfast. Coffee done, I went out in the garden, … Read moreClothing optional. Of uselessness of clothes

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.

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.

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
On Monday we drove to Maishofen, near Zell am See, parked, and set off north into the forest up the hill looming above us.

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

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.

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.
