Let’s go to America! – in Saxony!
Caputh close to Potsdam
When we saw that America exists in Saxony, only 30 minutes away from us, we knew: we have to go! We picked a route with water, a lot of shade and somewhat shorter than 15km, as we wanted to go for a little paddle afterwards. The parking lot that the hiking app komoot suggested, was […]
Saxon Switzerland – for the first and probably only time on the given route
Sometimes there’s not enough time to do an overnight trip. But, day trips have a big advantage: you go with a very light pack. As we were in Berlin for a job, we were looking for a nice little hike close to Potsdam. Of course, on the water. Starting The roundtrip started and ended at […]
Tyssa Walls – or: where are the typhus rocks?
When we woke up, we saw: Nothing!!! We were completely fogged in. That’s why our original plan, to go on a hike from the hotel, didn’t work. Now that we are in a great landscape, we also want to see it! Finally we decided to go on a popular, traditional tour, on which we’d see […]
14 eightthousand peaks in the Ore Mountains 1/2, or: Silvia forgets her underwear
The occasion: For her birthday, a friend gave Alica an overnight stay in a hotel in Saxon Switzerland – for two people and two dogs. As it is getting quite cold this time of the year, a nice present. We will try winter camping, but once you have an opportunity for a warm bed… use […]
(Deutsch) 14 Achttausender 2/2, oder: ich hab gefroren wie ein Schneider
After checking on our schedules, we realized there was only one time slot when all three of us had time for a 3-day-hike. Predicted temperatures were about 35 degrees. Nevertheless we decided to go and walk as far as we and the dogs are having fun. Our basic plan was a tour called 14 8000 […]
1 Person, 1 Dog, 1 Car – one week through Slovenia
Sorry, this entry is only available in German.
Along the Mulde or: “What was ISO doing?”
I’d never been “on vacation” with Leni before. I just rearranged my car into a camping car, and so i got to try it out – in one of the countries that I wanted to visit for a while – Slovenia. I didn’t have much time to make extraordinary travel plans, so I just googelt […]
Elsterperlenweg Day 2 – or: Silvia, your shadow is on the solar panel
We planned to do a day trip of about 15km. Our route started in Wechselburg, across Rochlitzer Berg, all the way to the castle in Rochlitz and back on the other side of the river to Wechselburg. Alica just got a camera (she used to take pictures only with her cellphone) and this day was […]
Elsterperlenweg Day 1 – just eat it!
We woke up early, but not the sun woke us up. It was Silvia, singing and making coffee in front of our tent. Leni went out to take a look, but Josi, Dràgàm and Alica didn’t really want to get up yet. It was 6:30am. Dràgàm was sleeping under the sleeping bag that was used […]
We had two days off in a row, so we decided to do another two day hike. This time we decided to take Silvia and Rocco with us. We chose the route at Alica’s garden having Gulasch. We thought the Elsterperlenweg might be nice – 72 km through the “thüringische Vogtland”. This time we thought […]
