On the go Hiking safely – even alone
No matter whether you head off with a girlfriend or by yourself: Safety has to be your highest priority. If you plan to venture out on your own for the very first time, you should probably tackle an easy trail first. So-called premium hiking trails are well-travelled and well-marked. They also have plenty of places where you can make planned and unplanned stops. Are you looking for tranquil, out-of-the-way places? No problem! Just let a girlfriend know where you will be and set a time when you can “check in” and let her know that you have arrived safely at your destination.
