Workday reflections outside the box.

The dragonfly brothel of the Silberteich

Christina/ June 19, 2022/ The daily grind/ 0 comments

A saying goes: each to his own. In other words, anybody shall live and act as one think best. But how about if the behaviour breaches the public order? That’s what we experienced last sunday between Braunlage and Sankt Andreasberg. Sexually explicit dragonflies copulate free and easy at the shore of the water. Every ancient Roman brothel would pales besides

It is Whit Monday and therefore German Mill Day. We want to explore some of the technical masterpieces. On the internet I search for some interesting buildings near by. I choose the mill Liesebach at Räbke. I also come across the water mill of Klein Quenstedt. Being close to Haldensleben we decide to combine the visits with some cycling. Just

Six peaks at Bad Hindelang

Christina/ June 14, 2022/ The daily grind, Culture/ 0 comments

The Allgäu is a hikers’ paradise. The village of Bad Hindelang (825 a.a.) located in the Upper Allgäu is a great starting point for mountain hikes. We climb six peaks in a weak. Thereby we enhance our performance from 1.456 metres to 2000 metres. Next to the Hirschberg (1.456), the Spieser (1.651), the Imberger horn (1.656), the Iseler (1.876) and

Modern tales: Between villains, dominance and pain

Christina/ May 15, 2022/ The daily grind, Culture

The BBK Kunsthaus currently shows the exhibition “Modern Fairy tales”, i.e. classic pieces of art newly interpreted by Friedhelm Kranz. The show is not fantasy but magical. The way Kranz displays his acts is extraordinary. Works and art forms of other artists are copied and manipulated. And maybe they are also, that’s my thought, newly interpreted. For that the works

Christina/ May 1, 2022/ The daily grind, Culture

On this sunday (24.4.2022) there is a reason to celebrate: After more than a decade of reconstruction the historic town hall of Goslar will open its doors to the public. And even though I have been there several times and a kid and later on as well I have to admit that I rediscovered this treasure anew. It raises my

The colourful fishes of Stralsund

Christina/ April 30, 2022/ The daily grind, Culture

Stralsund is the pearl on the doorstep of Rügen. With its historical centre, the well preserved city wall and the ocean museum Ozeaneum the Hanseatic city is really attractive. Even though the weather is quite rainy and windy today, we still enjoyed the guided city tour. A visit to the ocean museum might be a must. However my recommendation is

The coast cycle path of Usedom

Christina/ April 26, 2022/ The daily grind, Culture

Usedom is the second biggest island of Germany. It is connected to the mainland by a bridge. Travellers can reach Usedom by car, train, by bike and also by foot. When I think of Usedom the prominent piers come into my mind. I also think of the magnificent buildings of the former centuries which decorate the so called emperor baths

Of cliffs, grandparents, hunters and cholera

Christina/ April 23, 2022/ The daily grind

This sunday we are on the move in the Nördliches Harzvorland. We want to expand our stamp collection and decided on the stamp stations around Lutter am Barenberg, Wallmoden and Bodenstein. On our way we take a seat on a stone sofa, visit grandma and grandpa and take up the track of the hunters, make a stopover at the cholera
