Autumn is coming and the glorious glows already show up regularly. We have a very, very good mushroom season this year, and sometimes we don’t even know what to do with our harvests. Luckily we have a drying machine. And no, we don’t eat the mushrooms in the pictures, except of the parasols.
We took a walk over the Wartberg hills of Buchen im Odenwald with Mam and my cousin Franzi and her dog Kia, the Aussi. One day later, it was Franzis birthday, but because of the weather I decided to leave early for Berlin and we joined her for this walk. For the first time since my arrival the sun came out and painted the landscape in shiny colors.
A walk with an old and dear friend trough the marvelous village of Hirschhorn over Neckar river. It’s so good to see people grow and change and that every change has the chance to be a powerful boost of live. At the same time walking through historic environments and knowing her since our distant school days reminds me that there is a solid foundation that can last over centuries.
Despite any circumstances I wanted to say thank you for this exceptional year. Very few of my friends and family have been hit by the virus and those who were are all well today. A lot of people I know have struggled economically, but because of personal initiative and help from the government most of them won’t suffer from serious consequences. Others struggled and still do struggle with social distancing, not going out, not seeing friends, home-office only. Despite the circumstances I had a lot of (mostly well distanced) experiences with friends and the privilege to get to know them better than before. This year was a lesson for everyone of us and I hope we all learned something important for our lives.
Thank you to everyone looking, reading and following and thank you to everyone who gets in touch from time to time and motivates me to continue hiking, writing and photographing.
Hugs to all of you and a very Happy New Year with hopefully a lot of great outdoor & travel experiences! Hike on!
Who would have thought that we would only see our friends outside one day, even in December? I made this hike through a classical part of the Odenwald with my old dear friend Daniel and over our conversation I completely forgot to take a photo of him.
wanMy Mom and I took a small hike near Külsheim and again we walked partly through the rain. At the end we visited the center of the village. Holiday decoration but nearly no people – good, but spooky at the same time.
