Benjamin is a Germany based backpacker and outdoor blogger. In his youth he spent lots of time outside with hiking and playing in nature. As he got older the time for the hobbies was limited. At the age of 24 he changed his mind and he went back to his hiking roots. He started his hiking career again with a 40 pound pack. After a couple of problems with health, Benjamin began to become interested in lightweight backpacking. Reducing the pack weight was a fantastic process for him and he still tries to save each gram. In that time he also started his blogging career to share the experiences with others. When he is not backpacking he is working in a foundry which is very exciting, but also exhausting or he spends time on his farm with three horses. In addition to backpacking he also likes mountainbiking and packrafting.
