In Eichhorst next to the lock we had a short meal with simple but very tasty fish variations at the Schorfheider Fischexpress. Also the take away smoked fish is very good. But please pass on the espresso, it’s made out of coffee powder. Yuck.

On the occasion of the super-birthday of my super-friends Moni & Robert we have been to Würzburg and made a little tour through the beautiful city. As I have spend a lot of weekends of my early twenties here I should have a proper picture of this wonderful franconian city surrounded by vineyards in mind but I guess […]

As I was on my own this time and it rained a lot at the beginning of the tour, I had some thoughts about why I’m doing that and what hiking and being outdoors means to me. Being in nature always comes to one point. It grounds me and makes me aware of the fact, […]
On our weekend trip to Bucharest, I wanted to have a tour outside the city to see a little bit of the rural surroundings and to get an idea of the landscape. Snagov is approximately 40 km north of Bukarest and we went there with our adorable hosts Silvia and George from the fabulous cloud 9 living hostel and their baby daughter Josephine.
To reach the island we had to cross a pedestrian bridge over a wonderful lake. At the entrance of the church we encountered some disagreements because our hosts didn’t agree with the dubious guy cashing entrance fees from tourists but not from locals. Obviously nowhere in Romania the entrance for a church has to be payed.
The beautifully paint small church is also considered to be the tomb of barbarous Vlad Țepeș a very famous guy in Romania who is today knewn as the source of inspiration to Bram Stokers Dracula.
When officials opened the tomb in 1931, it was – of course – empty.
From 800 AD until the arrival of the spanish conquerors in the 15th century a culture called Yumbo lived in the area surrounding Tulipe. The pools they build and which have been found there – one of them only in 2004 because of aerial photography – were probably for ritual purification or their mirror has […]
With a guide we went to the jungle at night. We saw quite a lot of strange creatures, mostly insects. A moth wich looks like a leaf, a furry, white caterpillar, mini frogs, huge hairy spiders and beetles, looking like sticks. The only mammal sat in a tree and we saw only his weird eyes. […]
For me as a plains(wo)man, it was a complete different experience to drive around Quito by car and always mount and decent several thousands of meters every day. Quito itself is crossed by some really deep canyons which can be traversed by some rare bridges. On one yellow sunset evening, we had a quite nice […]
We went to Coethen, one hour east of Berlin next to Bad Freienwalde to see an exposition of the artist Karin Kerkmann in the beautiful chapel of the village.
Afterwards we still had some time to hike above Stille Oder and Alte Oder. As you hike on hills you have some breathtaking vast views on the Oderbruch. A real hiking recommendation! Next time I’ll come with more time.
