Respect Nature.

Nature has to be treated with the utmost Respect at all times. But there are a lot of People that just do not see… Continue reading Respect Nature.

Bad Harzburg. [HWN 121]

I absolutely love it to Explore new places. Originally, I had intended to Hike to the Wolfswarte after today’s Exam, but the sky was very grey and it looked a lot like rain. So, after spending a short time in Torfhaus, I drove on to Bad Harzburg. When I arrived there, I had no idea… Continue reading Bad Harzburg. [HWN 121]

The Achtermannshöhe Video.

A few Days ago, I hiked up to the Achtermannshöhe near Oderbrück all by my lonesome. On the second half of my Hike, I also shot some Video.

Hiking to the Achtermannshöhe.

Today was a Holiday here in Germany. And I went Hiking to the Achtermannshöhe in the Harz. The Parking Lot was packed with Cars, but luckily, the Trail was quite empty.

Wandernadel Level 3

Last week, I got my 24th Wandernadel Stamp. Coincidentally that is also the number of Stamps required to get the Golden Wandernadel. Back then, the Tourist Information had already closed though, and I was unable to purchase the corresponding Pin. Today, that was different. I managed to get there before 3pm and got what I… Continue reading Wandernadel Level 3

At the Kuttelbacher Teich.

Today was a beautiful day. And after Work, I just had to spend a little time in the open air. And since there is currently a Wandernadel Sonderstempel at the Kuttelbacher Teich near Hahnenklee, I decided to go there. After finding the Stempelstelle and stamping my Wanderpass, I decided to walk around the Teich mostly… Continue reading At the Kuttelbacher Teich.

Hiking around Schulenberg [HWN 124]

After counting all the Wandernadel Stamps I already have in my Wanderpass, I came up with a count of 23. And that was just one Stamp shy of me being eligible to get a golden Wandernadel. Naturally, I had to change that. And after searching for a nice little Stamp to get, I decided to… Continue reading Hiking around Schulenberg [HWN 124]
