Berlin Day Hike: Tour Around The Lakes In Waldsieversdorf

We had a slow and grey Sunday and the sun hid behind clouds again. We all hope spring will manifest soon with great lights and warm sunrays. Pavlov saw a duck for the first time and as he is a “Duck Tolling Retriever” I imagined noticing some interest. But he is also interested in crows in the park 🙂

Happy 2021!

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!

Berlin Day Hike: Tiny Cows And Foggy Lakes

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.

Full Moon Over Oder River

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.

Sounds of winter

Berlin Day Hike: Golden Glows And Wafts Of Mist Around Dammwiesen

We had a very nice sunny and at the same time foggy walk around Dammwiesen, a marshland area between Rehfelde and Rüdersdorf. The Autumn sun was moody and showed up only sometimes. A very beautiful landscape through the forest the villages and along the border of Stienitzsee. At the beach of the latter a lot of hikers gathered to catch the probably last sun rays of the year.
