Corona-diary: King Hübich and the roast pork

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

Königstein

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. Upon taking the urban railway to reach the access points of the hiking tours you get to know the places along the route quite quickly. When we come to Königstein on our second day I realize quickly that

(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

(Deutsch) Corona-Tagebuch: Der Wolfi geht um!

Christina/ May 23, 2020/ The daily grind

In the Oderwald they say: “Do not turn around, the wolf walks abroad!” Otherwise, the joint community is peaceful, however within the forest you have to be beware of the Lupus upon hiking or jogging according to warning signs attached to some trees. In case you are faced with on of those fierce animals you should not run away but

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

Visiting the kale queen

Christina/ January 26, 2020/ The daily grind

Basically Winter is cold in German. Especially in January and Februar you expect snow and very cold temperatures. Therefore, you need nourishing meals at that time. In the north of Germany it is a tradition to serve kale with a grits sausage. You start the day with a hiking tour to catch some appetite and afterwards you stop at a

Tour of the angel: A fairy tale of angles, renegades and funny trolls

Christina/ November 24, 2014/ The daily grind

Well, it is about christmas time, although outside temperatures of yesterday’s hiking tour rather reminds of spring than winter. However, this is the time of the year when fairy-tales are told. That is why I chose the form of an experimental didactic play spiced with thoughtful humorously reflection to describe our trekking tour though the evergreen and springlike enchanted forest

Tour romanesque: Mägdesprung-Selketal-Falkenstein-Sternhaus

Christina/ September 21, 2014/ Culture

Well, actually the whole thing started earlier, namely with the trip of the Selke Valley Train from Gernrode to the Mägdesprung. From the station at Mägdesprung we walked downhill to the Selke Valley. At the beginning we passed the three ancient Hammerfactories and also the first stamp-collecting stations. Collecting stamps was especially exiting this time as the tour held the

Fog, pea soup and Klondike

Christina/ April 7, 2012/ Culture

Good Friday, fucking cold, fog, what to do? Hiking in the Harz mountains! It is my third try to climb the Hanskühnenburg in the South Harz Mountains. Two times I failed due to bad weather. This time luck is on my side, even though it is only 3 degrees celsius outside. Together with a friend, who is familiar with the
