Christina/ October 19, 2020/ The daily grind/ 0 comments

We are approaching our first Covid-19 winter and this is serious: There is again talk about social distancing, about wearing a mask everywhere and about social isolation. Prior to a next possible shutdown I need something for the heart to keep it in me for the dark time of „solitary confinement“: An enchanted forest. Where can I find it? Of

Christina/ October 13, 2020/ Culture

Always expect the unexpected also within the Saxon Switzerland. Upon a verspertine walk around Pirna I learn about the Saxon wine route and the corresponding hiking trail. Wine-hiking in the smallest growing area of Germany that sounds tempting. That’s why I am using my day off to try the first stage of the path. It starts at Pirna and leads

Christina/ October 13, 2020/ The daily grind, Culture

Going to the Elbsandsteingebirge I do not know more of it than Pirna and Bad Schandau. That changes quickly during this week.

Christina/ September 24, 2020/ The daily grind

As of late vice is given a new chance in Braunschweig: The “Löwen-Play” located on the Berliner Straße has plans for the opening of a brothel on its second floor. I had not heard of this project so far. Yesterday I was confronted with the fears and resistance of the adjacent residents manifested as posters and banner. I came across

(Deutsch) Corona-Tagebuch: An der wilden Ilse

Christina/ September 20, 2020/ The daily grind

This Corona summer Germany definitely turned into a sports nation. Both, in the city and at the country side bicyclers as far as the eye can see. In the Harz mountains hiking is the number one past time of the German tripper. I rarely saw the parking site for hikers at Ilsenburg that packed as last sunday. Also the way

Corona-diary: Take away confidence-booster

Christina/ September 17, 2020/ The daily grind

It is still summer, it is still warm outside, but the feeling of “German Angst” is already here again. The fear of the cold season and a second wave of Covid 19 is like a sword of Damocles, combined with the menace of a second shutdown.
