We had a nice hike through the hilly forests near Bad Freienwalde. Don’t miss to have a snack at the “Waldschenke” next to lake Baasee and admire their great decorative items from different centuries. Nearby you can look up to the highest tree in Brandenburg. In fact, you can’t see which one is the highest […]
Museum Klostermühle in Boitzenburg A sight really worth visiting in Boitzenburg is the Museum Klostermühle build in the 18th century and the ruin of a monastery just behind it (13th century). Thousands of well arranged artifacts from different “old times” are making former life tangible in this building. And there are some real treasures as […]

Hugs to all of you and a very […]

Pico, the island, has the same name as its mountain. With 2531m, Pico Mountain is the highest mountain in Portugal and one of the biggest European volcanoes. The last eruption has been in 1720. One of the former eruptions created another tiny mountain inside of the caldera (I’m quite sure that geologists would chose different words for this outcome :-), which gives Pico its characteristic appearance. It looks like the mountain would wear a too small party hat. Despite this funny exterior, Pico has a diginfied and wise aura.

I chose this first picture, because I made a huge amount of pictures of water this day. But anyway: This was quite an experience! For sure: Everyone going whale watching hopes for this dreamy moment when a huge whale jumps out of the water next to your tiny boat and salutes the crew with a […]
We hiked along Dammwiesen, Annatal and Herrensee and had ice cream near Strausberg Main Station at “Kaffeepause”. Try Snow Ice and don’t be afraid of the huge portions :-).
Our next hike went from Kyjov (Khaa, Langengrund) trough the valley of the rivers Krinice (Kirnitsch) and Vlci Potok over the village of Vlci Hora and back to Kyjov.
