Ireland: Muckross House And Gardens And Torc Waterfall

On our second day we made a visit to fabulous Muckross House and had a long walk through the woods and to Torc Waterfalls. I don’t like guided tours but you can’t look at the house without it. The guided tour through the house we had, was very informative and our guide – Patsy – told the stories with interesting anecdotes and without any longeurs.

Ireland: Killarney

My Mom and I went on a holiday to Kerry in Ireland. We arrived late in the evening and had a first impression of Killarney when looking for a pub to listen to some music. Killarney is a very touristic village in the fabulous landscape of the famous Ring of Kerry, it’s very near to […]

Wolfgang, The Squirrel

He already lived here last year, but he supposably didn’t understand the squirrel-feeder. Now I caught him finally getting it. Awe, he’s cute!

Berlin Day Hike: A Magical Landscape Shaped By Beavers

When we hiked around Buckow last week, we met a couple that told us about a huge dam build by beavers on the other side of the town. I was quite curious to see it and so I followed his description “at the end of the village direction Strausberg along Sophienfließ. In fact, it was not one dam but at least ten of them embedded in a magical, shire-like and blooming landscape where the sunlight falling through the trees is caught in the creek and the birds are singing as if there was a competition to win.
