Christina/ May 15, 2020/ The daily grind

On my jogging-round I have seen him many times. No, it’s not George Clooney, it is the Pink Panther, painted on a wall. It is a graffiti on the Brunswick fromer track bed.

Corona-diary: The long way through the nature preserve Elm-Lappwald

Christina/ April 13, 2020/ The daily grind

Today getting up was not easy at all. Waking up I notice that I am kind of aching all over – a little bit. Yesterday’s long-distance hike across the nature preserve Elm-Lappwald is taking its toll: we were out and about for 6.5 hours. According to the tour descriptions (I merged two trails) the two loop hikes should have summed
