We had a wonderful hike with our dear guests from England and we chose a trail which is mostly outside the forest to get some sun. When hiking along the Buckower Kleinbahn you’ll see an alley with huge old trees on the other side of the rails in the middle of nowhere. It leads to […]
Along the Lake We saw a thousands of birds – ducks, goose, herons – but unfortunately they where all very far from us and I had only my wide-angle with me. I’m sorry 🙂 Langer See next to the Castle of Reichenow
