The Felsenmeer is an enormous agglomeration of huge rocks which is hundreds of millions of years old. Due to the continental drift this strange formation build up and shows us earth’s history ever since. At least since we are here 🙂 Some of the rocks have even been sculpted by the ancient romans. We have been there to explore the rocks and the surroundings.

May I introduce you to the lake on which I wore ice-skates for the first time of my life? Where I rowed in a wooden boat with my dad? Where my grandpa taught me the dangers of thin ice? Where one summer morning, after a party night out, while starring at the sunrise with my best friend Silvi, we met this guy with an axe who told us that he comes to the forest when he feels the urge to kick some trees asses?
Today it looked peaceful and serene and nobody would ever suppose that this lake has seen all this stories.

“Die transsibirische Eisenbahn fährt nicht durch Mörschenhardt” (Andreas Balles, 1990)
This was my first thought when I arrived in this very small village called Mörschenhardt not far away from my hometown in Southern Germany.
In 1990, a former classmate wrote this sentence while imitating Günther Eich, a famous German poet. He – the classmate – became a poet later on – at least he wrote a poetry book.
And there is so much more in this sentence. There are quite a lot of villages where there is, metaphorically speaking, nothing like the Trans-Siberian Railroad. And sometimes this is a great advantage.
