Finally some snow! I would really love it unconditionally if I could trust car drivers to drive cautious and safely but I can’t. So I enjoy this light and silence while I am far away from roads. Here are some pictures from our garden and from a walk in the near forest.
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.
Driving home for Christmas and not seeing friends – we all hated this thought. But fortunately there is an alternative: Long walks outdoors. Here, in December 2020 in Baden-Württemberg, two persons only. And in the rain.
We had a cold Sunday Hike around Dammwiesen between Rehfelde and Stienitzsee. On our way we saw donkeys and cows grazing on this huge natural reserve area. Really worth a hike! Some weeks before we made the same hike, but as the trees still had most of their leaves and the sun was hining the atmosphere was completely different.
