With home office, I’m siting inside my apartment most of the time and to not turn crazy and move my bones a bit I going outside for extended night walks. Sometimes with friends, sometimes on my own. God, I wish to have a dog!
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.
Mam and I made a short walk outside. On top of the hill temperatures were quite low so we were able to capture this very fine nature phenomenons.
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.
When you know landscapes very well like I do with Brandenburg and the Odenwald, you always are aware of differences between them …
I started taking walks at night sometimes on my own, sometimes with a friend to move my tired home-office legs. You see some dog walkers around but even Unter den Linden and Brandenburger Tor is empty. Nobody is out there and it’s like in a movie where you wake up and suddenly you become aware that you are the only person around.
You could say it’s just some trees in a creek, but there is much more to this enchanted place north of Berlin. And it got around: On Sunday and with no possibility to see your friends other than outside, a lot of people took this beautiful and easy to reach hike in the forest near Borgsdorf.
We made a trip to Bad Freienwalde that day and as it was already late, dark and very cold our hike was quite short. But the moon showed up and everything sunk in this marvelous pink light when the sun went went down.
