Workday reflections outside the box.

Tracing villain Rose

Christina/ May 22, 2019/ The daily grind

Off the beaten tracks there is also a lot to discover for passionate hikers. This time we are tracing the most honest crook of his time, the villain Rose. He is supposed to have made trouble in the 19th century. He was sentenced to 15 years jail for his infamous actions and was finally deported to the United States. I’d

Village trip with Eulenspiegel

Christina/ May 6, 2019/ The daily grind

May 5th, 2019: The highest height in the Harz mountains is covered with snow! Uh! The hiking offer of a friend for a walk in the snow up to the “Brocken” went unheard. Beginning of May I am rather looking for sensible heat not for white ice needles. Looking for an alternative I come across the roundtrips in the “Elm”,

“Da wollen Sie heute noch hin?”

Christina/ April 27, 2019/ The daily grind

„You cannot get to this place today – you are not going to make it. And then, there is also the way back to where you started.” During the last three days, we were often faced with such expressions of amazement when asking for the way. To hike 65 km in three days and to collect twelve stamps of the

Visiting friends

Christina/ April 9, 2019/ The daily grind

Are you looking for a new challenge? If so, here comes a real insider tipp for you: the Drömling. Whoever is looking for tranquility, pure nature and friendly people, this is it. The nature reserve, situated in Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt, with its approx. etwa 320 km2 might be rather unknown. The Drömling is a refugium for rare and endangered

Adventure trails in the Harly

Christina/ February 7, 2019/ The daily grind

The term „Harly“ (the name of a hill nearby Vienenburg) reminds me of Harley Davidson instantly. And exactly as fast as we could we climbed up Harly hill last Sunday. At first we hiked from Vienenburg via a snow-covered ridgeway to the Harly-tower. Unfortunately, the tower will only open in spring again. From there we walked over the “Mittelweg” towards

Braunlage: A day out of time

Christina/ January 27, 2019/ The daily grind

Winter can be fun too. Whereas snow in the city can be a pain in the ass, the icing sugar white substance can be dreamlike under a blue sky and in the great outdoors. That’s what we witnessed last Sunday in Braunlage. But watch out: whoever is mad enough to go to the Harz mountains at the weekend when blue

Zucchini in place of flowers

Christina/ July 30, 2018/ The daily grind

It is sooo cool what I learn during hiking trips. Even though I could leave my stamp book in the rucksack this time, still there were many things to discover and above all to learn! This time it was about knitting camels, dogmatical companions and a wonderful TV-series script: the german-arabic friendship with a wonderful ending at the “Hexenwerk” (witchcraft).

One day out of time

Christina/ July 23, 2018/ The daily grind

It need not always be Spain that is how my story could start. Or: It is not a matter of where you are but with whom you are on the spot. Both is correct. This summer promises to be magic. Not only because the enduring fantastic weather brought a South European flair to Germany. No, it is because I was

Magic Springs of Wolfsburg

Christina/ July 3, 2018/ The daily grind

Allowedly, Wolfsburg is not famous neither for its urban nor scenic beauty. All the more we were surprised when we discovered the local spring hiking trail last Saturday. The suggested walking paths are eligible in a version of 8 km, 10 km or 14 km. The trail can be extended up to 16 km if you add a detour to
