Tour de Oderland

A very special guided tour brought us to some different initiatives in eastern Brandenburg, where we learned, how people from the city and from the villages live and work together on the countrysite and engage actively in village live. I was most impressed by the story of Trebnitz.

A Walk Through The City And The New Berlin City Castle

We made a “culture day” this day and saw the exposition “Berlin Global”. And for the first time we have been to the newly built Humboldt Forum aka the Stadtschloss. The castle in the middle of the city has been rebuilt at the place were once the Palast der Republik stood. The latter has been contaminated by asbestos and has been the government building of the former GDR which was a dictatorship. But at the same time, a lot of people identified with this state and this building and I still think, it was wrong to tear it down and build some kind of Disney World from the past at its place.

Berlin Day Hike: Snow, Finally

On our walk through the forest we met Donald Trump, the snowman. He was much nicer than his original. And he didn’t talk so much. Pavlov loves snow and he likes catching snowballs, just like in the last pictures.

Berlin Day Hike: Around Mühlenbeck With Friends And Dog Friends

This was Pavlovs birthday hike with his best friend Panda and of course the big and small humans had a lot of fun, too. In April, we already did a similar hike, when the two dogs still were babies.

Berlin Day Hike: Golden Days On The Countryside

This was Corona Autumn 2021. I’m grateful for all the friends coming along for seeing us and take a walk through the forest together. Please come again.

Berlin Day Hike: Mushroom Picking Weekend

My best friends from Würzburg and Hamburg came tu us to have a mushroom picking and – of course – eating weekend. Our success was moderate at best but I don’t mind. I had a great weekend.
