Berlin Day Hike: Summer Day Around Tornow Lake

We had a nice day in the forest and at the lakes around Pritzwalker Mühle. Pavlov had a lot of fun in the forests and I’m very happy that he doesn’t show any ambition to hunt (except of pigeons in the city). At the end we bought some homemade honey next to Haus Tornow am See and a man told us the moved history of the building (Orphanage, war hospital, home for difficult adolescents).

Take a seat and have some coffee and cake on the lake side. It’s a really wonderful place.

Burn The Virus II

From all the countries and landscapes they came. Druids, magicians, inventors, artists, scientists and clairvoyants. They came with their burden in form of a virus and they came to take its power away. To ban it from the surface of Mother Earth. Like last year, only better.


After the burning of the viruses, a portal in heaven opened and a red rainbow appeared. Unfortunately we – the humans – are not yet ready to to read the signs.

And than darkness and rain came and the ceremony began …

The Different Faces Of Our Garden In May

Incredibly great changes become visible when taking pictures of the same garden very early in the morning or after the rain. I’m always impressed how nature changes during the seasons or with light and weather.

After the rain

Early Morning

April In The Garden

It’s still cold and we have frosty nights and mornings, but spring is coming undeniably!

Berlin Day Hike: Lost Places near Harnekop

We will come back to visit the huge exposition of GDR motorcycles collected by one of the inhabitants of the abandoned barracks.

Berlin Day Hike: Our House Hike Around Herrensee

We started this afternoon in the rain and we just wanted to have a quick walk before returning to the city. But soon the sun came out and we had some magic light in the forest. So there is something to remember in it: The most ordinary walk can unexpectedly turn into something shiny and bright with a little help from the sun. Pavlov loves running between the trees and mostly obeys very well when we call him back.

Berlin Day Hike: Puppy Tour Around Herrensee

Pavlov takes one or two kilos weekly and he really starts to enjoy the outdoors in the last days. We have a lot of fun teaching him how to get treats (easily, with those eyes!).

Berlin Day Hike: Heralds Of Spring Around Dammwiesen

We took a family tour around Dammwiesen in a marvelous and intense light. Everything was blue and yellow, we were able to hike in t-shirts for the first time of the year and in the evening our cheeks were glowing from all the sun we got. Pavlov made friends with the donkeys but even if the oxes were still babies, he showed a lot of respect. Maybe the corns?
Anyway: Even in February there a already ticks. I took four Dermacentor reticulatus (Auwaldzecke, marsh ticks) out of his fur the next day. Time to get him vaccinated.

Berlin Day Hike: Winter Hike Around Bötzsee

Always a good walk around the lakes near Strausberg. We mainly talked about dogs and how we both wish to have one, which ones and how to teach them stuff. Who would have thought that this would have been my last hike without a dog …

Berlin Night Walk IV

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!
