The “Botanischer Volkspark Blankenfelde-Pankow” was once the largest school garden in Berlin. It’s more than 100 years old and ready for extended walks through a great landscape. You can find fallow deer there, you can make a beekeeper training and you can have a (really great) piece of cake in a café called “Mint” situated […]

Yeah! We made a hike after quite a while! Renovating can be quite satisfying but it can also be very, very annoying and so I was happily tricked into one day leisure activity a week. What shall I say: It’s great. Let’s do it again.

This was our last day in the Peak District and with our friends, who left for their honeymoon to Majorca the next day, and we had only the morning for a short hike because we had to leave for the airport in the afternoon. What I learned: England is really underestimated hiking country. Just look […]
In Moustier-Sainte-Marie, on a beautiful hot morning, we took a little hike uphill through the flower fields and had some great views just up to Lac Sainte Croix and on this enchanted village build on the foot of its protecting mountain. Goal to this hike was a little chapel called Notre Dame de Beauvoir. You can see it from the village and it’s an ancient, dark and really silent place where you can still hear centuries of pilgrims praying for a better tomorrow.

Today we just had a little lazy walk through Wedding and Mitte. I wore my linen slippers despite heavy cloudiness, because I wanted to, and of course it started raining and I had wet feet again. We had a little meal in a turkish restaurant on Badstrasse, we met some friends who had a stand on the flee market at Mauerpark and we went to the flee market on Arkona Platz to order a stand for November (!).
Sitting behind the stand at Mauerpark for a while and chatting with my friend Eddi – who is going to do “Interail for Seniors” through some eastern bloc countries – I looked up to some potential clients and saw a familiar face in front of me but this was so unlikely that I didn’t believe it at first. Standing there was Amy and her husband Jean-Paul from Luxemburg which I met on the Camino de Santiago in 2015. She is here for Fashion Week. // OMG. Fashion Week again. That is why there are so many strangely dressed people in town! // Next time when you’re in town I’ll have more time for you guys. Promised!
Look at those plants! Berlin is so green. The little park without a name behind my house is a complete wilderness now. There a millions of flowers, trees and berries growing this time of the year. I wonder if I should harvest some blackberries soon?
