Brandenburg By Boat: Marvelous Müggelspree

We made a family excursion by canoe along river Spree and the wild Müggelspree which is highly recommendable. We went from Fürstenwalde to Hangelsberg, which means we went with the flow but anyway: you can’t do it  without effort. You have to have at least one sporty guy/girl on board :-).

You can rent a boat here.

Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur: Hiking around Moustier-Sainte-Marie

In Moustier-Sainte-Marie, on a beautiful hot morning, we took a little hike uphill through the flower fields and had some great views just up to Lac Sainte Croix and on this enchanted village build on the foot of its protecting mountain. Goal to this hike was a little chapel called Notre Dame de Beauvoir. You can see it from the village and it’s an ancient, dark and really silent place where you can still hear centuries of pilgrims praying for a better tomorrow.
