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.

Today, I went backpacking deep in the woods of Haspe, North Rhine-Westphalia.

I loved it and the weather was great. I invite you to see it for yourself! … More Meeting ‘Kaiser Friedrich lll’ In The Woods
