Earlier this month, I went to the Kaisergarten in Oberhausen, Germany. I almost forgot I took some pictures. The Kaisergarten is supposed to be a memorial to “Kaiser Wilhelm l.” and got its name in celebration of Wilhelm’s 100. anniversary in 1898. The park itself is much older though.
Today, I ascended the “Tippelsberg”, a hill in my hometown Bochum, Germany. On its summit, you can overlook almost the whole Ruhr area, even though the mountain is only 150 meters above sea level and approximately 50 meters above the surrounding area. The weather was awesome, but also quite windy. The air was fresh and lively. I often go there to learn, read or relax. I enjoy the Tippelsberg’s naturalness. … More On the Trail of Giant Tippulus

Hi. This time, I went to the lake “Harkortsee” in Wetter, NRW, attached to the Ardey Hills. It’s a nice and quite natural place which I often visited as a kid.

Today, I want to publish a blog entry about sustainable practices in everyday life. I’m afraid, many people disregard that “individual social responsibility” is just as constitutive of sustainable development as “corporate social responsibility” (aka another stale buzzword). The latter, CSR, is rightly in the center of the debate of sustainable development, but the former should not be disregarded. … More Developing an Everyday Eco-Consciousness
Today, I want to tell you something about this lad. Let’s just say, his name is Jonas. Jonas lived on the street for almost 2 years, before he started his training as an office clerk. At the age of 16, he felt like leaving home and school to become a rebellious punk. Now, he’s 24 years old and wears suit and tie; … More High-End Medium, but Low-End Message?
Today, I spent the afternoon with my nephew in Bochum’s city park. At first, that might not sound very exciting, but we got to meet some super cool residents of said park. We took some photos of our new friends and also local places of interest and art, such as the “Bismarckturm”, celebrity frog “Fridolin”, “Jungmädchenbrunnen” and a massive fire bowl – rivaling the Olympian one. … More Meeting New Friends and Chancellor Bismarck
Today, I wanted some knight and dark age feeling so I went hiking to a magnificent water castle and a fortress both in Hattingen, NRW. The water castle and the fortress lie fairly close together, around 2-3 km distance, but I took the slightly longer trail, because of its great outlook: rougly 5-6 km. So all in all it was a nice postprandial hike through the woods. The weather and view was fantastic, but, please, lean back and see for yourself. Enjoy. … More A Throwback To Medieval Times
