Felix Frenzel

Adventure & Endurance

Stories

 
Felix lives by the credo that having dreams is vitally important, making them reality is essential to feel alive.
Organizing expeditions in the Himalayas, diving deep into Arabian culture or taking your 6 month old baby on a road-trip through South America. Adventures faraway or on the doorstep, Felix is never lacking new ideas and always quick with his YES.
Growing up with Jack London stories and his granddads yarn he is very passionate about everything that involves travel, different cultures and adventure.
 
He is also under a spell for endurance sports and always sets himself new challenges on the bike or in the water. This year will see him riding across Germany to raise awareness and funds for a human rights NGO.
 
 

To get a more detailed idea of what I’m into here are a few highlight from what I like to call my adventure curriculum:

– one semester in Brazil that turned into two and where I met my amazing wife

– hitch hiking to Italy to swim across a lake

– planing and executing expeditions in the Indian Himalaya

– many many invitations in Syria, Jordan and Turkey

– a big parental leave even as everybody except my wife said no

– 250 km hike through the black forest with our 6 month old

– 8000 km road trip in South America with our 8 month old

– hiking in the Sahara with camels

– Hitch-biking North Cape to home

I have my little black notebook at home with many many ideas for more adventures and expeditions. For this year I have planed to go after a few challenges that can be started at my doorstep. Here is what I want to pull of:

  • Creating my own triathlon following the river Rhine from Ludwigshafen to Cologne by packraft, bike and hike.
  • Complete an everesting by bike and get in the hall of fame. Everesting: climb one mountain, hill, brigde… as many times untill you accumulate the hight of Mount Everest.
  • Ride across Germany from the northernmost town Flensburg to the southernmost town Garmisch Partenkirchen in 4 days or maybe five. And always sleep outside.
