The Ottifant of the stone chamber of the Dorm

Christina/ January 9, 2022/ The daily grind

With our trip in the forest Dorm around the village Groß Steinum we enjoy a journey into the geological past of the region. Two so called megalithic chambered tomb are on our list. The biggest tomb of the area which is still located in its original place is the Lübbensteine close to Helmstedt. I visited them 1,5 years ago with

New Year’s Eve on the Leineberglandbalkon

Christina/ January 9, 2022/ The daily grind

The New Year’s hike becomes in its second year slowly but surely an inherent part of the last day of the years. Next to the Wilhlem Busch excursion in 2020 we hike in the Leinebergland this time, more precisely on the Duinger ridgeway. The hightlight on this 20 km-trip is the visit of the Leinebergland-balcony. High above Marienhagen Our tour

Hiking on the Schäferstuhl

Christina/ January 9, 2022/ The daily grind

On the hill Schäferstühl close to Salzgitter you cannot only (para-)glide, no, you can also hike on it. I always love to try new distances and discover the unknown. On our 16 km long tour we did not only visit the Liebenburg Castle from the outside but also climb the Hausmannsturm and also the Schäferstuhl and enjoy a coffee break

At the Hildesheimer Wald: Fog, mud and apple cake

Christina/ December 21, 2021/ The daily grind

Once again thick, monotonous grey lies above the city. It is a dark and heavy haze which lies above all, swallows all the light and makes this day gloomy and dull. In case slight mizzle is added to this scenery the misery is perfect. I had enough of this wheather situation by now. Only one thing can help: looking for

Corona-Diary: mulled wine hiking at Riddagshausen

Christina/ December 14, 2021/ The daily grind

I admit it: I can’t hardly cope with the grey and dark season. Almost every day it is dark, rainy and simply unfomfortable outside. Beside that due to the Corona-restrictions such as 2G, 3G or 5G – no, that’s UMTS – there is no festive cheer yet. That’s why I have to nestle. And last saturday the weather is being

Naturpark Elm-Lappwald: The Elfenpfad of Langeleben

Christina/ December 3, 2021/ The daily grind

The second Corona-Winter is here. Once again there are restrictions – also for vaccinated people. How can we make it through this grey wintertime? With “jollity in the heart” how the outgoing Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel put it. And I think the occasional descent into a safe and sound fantasy world can help. I gave it a try, last saturday

(Deutsch) Unterwegs an der Allerniederung, wo der Weihnachtsmann reist

Christina/ November 24, 2021/ The daily grind

Maybe these are the most beautiful experiences: trips without expectations. I have the feeling that whenever I just ingest into the day and accept whatever happens then easiness rules and often unexpected and nice things take place. This time it is the formation of the clouds on the partly blue sky which enchant us. We even think we see Santa

Norderney: home of coziness

Christina/ November 16, 2021/ The daily grind, Culture

What more could I want? A short break over my birthday at Norderney with perfect weather. The island, where coziness is at home. Do you feel the same, that there is nothing better on a murky and stormy november rain day after a stroll to come home and enjoy a warm tee in a cozy atmosphere? If so, Norderney is

Visiting the Fünfseenland

Christina/ November 14, 2021/ The daily grind, Culture

This is the deal: With a short break at the Ammersee you get another four lakes for free. Where? At the so called “Five lakes district” in Bavaria. Both, mountain and water fans get one’s money’s worth here. And also on the physical well-being is taken care for. My recommendation: the restaurant Steg 32. Four days in Paradise Allowedly: the
