Why I love to Travel.

Travelling, wether domestically or abroad, is always awesome. And my trip to Czechia last week reminded be to always be open to the unknown. It reminded me that you do not need a fancy Airbnb or some Hostel to explore. All you need is time, curiosity and some money. Captured last week in Czechia. I… Continue reading Why I love to Travel.

Czechia was awesome!

Last week, from mid Tuesday to early Sunday morning, I was out camping near Most in Czechia for FS Czech with my Formula Student Team. It was so awesome. When we arrived in Most on Tuesday, we set up camp. We also got our Team credentials. I also made my first mistake here: I set… Continue reading Czechia was awesome!

My favourite places in Germany.

I live in Germany. And while I love travelling abroad, and going to do so next week, there are also many awesome and beautiful places here. And for me, it is even kinda affordable to get around in Germany. (It is for pretty much everyone.) But everyone, including me, has their favourites. These are mine.… Continue reading My favourite places in Germany.

Don’t be afraid of high ISOs.

Not too long ago, I refused to use any ISO over 1600. That was because my old Camera really didn't perform very well at any number greater than that. But my current Camera is actually quite passable, even up to ISO 12800. There was a time, when I absolutely loved to shoot in the dark… Continue reading Don’t be afraid of high ISOs.

Yet another Teich.

As I've said before, there are many lakes around Clausthal. Today, I made my way to the Hasenbacher Teich to have my dinner and take some pictures. Situated between Clausthal and Buntenbock, the Hasenbacher Teich is, during the summer time, the place to go swim if you are from Osterode and you want to swim… Continue reading Yet another Teich.

Police Open House.

Yesterday, the police hosted an open house in Osterode. And because I was interested in it, and also because I had nothing else todo, I went. I initially thought that I wouldn't have long when I arrived at the local station, because the internet told me that the event would end at 3pm. It ended… Continue reading Police Open House.

Bark beetles.

Here in the Harz, especially in the National Park, we have quite some bark beetle troubles. There are just so many dead trees, because of the spruce monoculture left behind by the once sprawling mining industry in the area. Back in the day, the miners needed loads of wood for their mining operations. They escpecially… Continue reading Bark beetles.

Clausthals’ Teiche

Together with hundrets of kilometres of ditches and tunnels those roughly 140 ponds form the Oberharzer Water Regale, an important part of the areas mining heritage. With the rise of electric power and also the advent of more compact hydraulic systems the Water… Continue reading Clausthals’ Teiche
