Odenwald Hike: Landscape And Weather

Sunny, cloudy, misty, rain and shine – this hike was very divers and beautiful.

Odenwald Hike: Hollersee In The Mist

Everyone complains about the rain. I’d say there is beauty and color in every kind of weather. Or as my grandma said: There is no bad weather, just bad clothes.

Enchanted Odenwald Landscapes, A Time Warp Shop And Some More Memories

We visited the small village of Berolzheim and took a walk to “Linni” (Lindich) a piece of forest and fields which once was partly owned by my Grandpa. My memories aren’t very vivid, I just remember a playground he made out of trees.

Some pictures of the past

Magic happens in peculiar ways

When we walked back to the village we talked about the fact that there is no store and no restaurant anymore. We suddenly stood in front of a houseware store, whose display obviously didn’t change until the 80s. There was a lot of dust and even some dried beetles on the objects in the window and the prices were still marked in Deutsche Mark instead of Euro (introduction in 2002). Out of curiosity I pushed the door and it opened miraculously. I called my Mum and we entered the store and even called for someone, but nobody appeared. I felt like sitting in a time machine full of late 70s kitchen articles which you can only still find on flee markets. We looked around in the store for at least 20 minutes and let the feeling of being trapped in a time warp infiltrate. So many crazy stuff! The store was very well heated and at the end I was willing to buy some curiosities, but still nobody there. So we left and closed the door of the time machine behind us. Later we met a Lady in the streets who told us that the owner is nearly 90 years old and lives above the store.

Another Shop from the past

When I was a child, I frequently climbed those steps to buy sweets in a tiny dark store led by a slightly scary old woman. In my memory the store was dusty and full of enigmatic containers. And when I think back, I have an atmosphere in mind which reminds me today of Ollivanders magic wand shop from Harry Potter.

Wow! What a change of atmosphere when you wake up and everything is cold, white and shiny.

Berlin Day Hike: Snow, Finally

On our walk through the forest we met Donald Trump, the snowman. He was much nicer than his original. And he didn’t talk so much. Pavlov loves snow and he likes catching snowballs, just like in the last pictures.

Berlin Day Hike: Around Mühlenbeck With Friends And Dog Friends

This was Pavlovs birthday hike with his best friend Panda and of course the big and small humans had a lot of fun, too. In April, we already did a similar hike, when the two dogs still were babies.

Berlin Day Hike: Golden Days On The Countryside

This was Corona Autumn 2021. I’m grateful for all the friends coming along for seeing us and take a walk through the forest together. Please come again.

Berlin Day Hike: Mushroom Picking Weekend

My best friends from Würzburg and Hamburg came tu us to have a mushroom picking and – of course – eating weekend. Our success was moderate at best but I don’t mind. I had a great weekend.

Sad Lights of Autumn In Our Garden

I’m so sad looking at those pictures. On the second and fifth you can see the huge trees on the neighbours estate. Well, they are all cut down now. 20 huge pine trees. Gone. On the other hand:
I really like the new neighbors. I’m just sad, that they don’t like trees.

Berlin Day Hike: Those Autumn Days Around The Castle Of Reichenow

A beautiful lake and a Fairytale-Phantasie-Castle – just enough to have a very nice autumnal hike. Pavlov went INTO a lake but he was shivering afterwards, so I decided that this would be the last time swimming until April next year for him. Poor Pavlov – always those parents decisions.
