The Teufelsloch.

Lately, I am really into Woodland Photography. I also really love it to go out and Explore in the Harz. Today, I did not have to go far from Osterode. The Teufelsloch is a Karst Spring locates South East of Osterode, just about 1.5km from the Leege Area, where I lived for most of my… Continue reading The Teufelsloch.

Pen & Paper.

We all live in a more and more digitized world. Nothing works without the Internet, for some, not even simple Journaling. I personally have tried various Journaling Apps, but I always found myself returning to the simplest Methods of writing my experiences down: Pen & Paper. My Wandernadel Pass as a stand-in for my Journal.… Continue reading Pen & Paper.

Lost Osterode.

I usually do not do Lost Places. But today, I came across one in Osterode by chance. I had decided to drive past the Site where the old Hospital of Osterode once stood. That Building was demolished back in 2010 for various reasons, one of them being Asbestos. Today, you can see absolutely nothing of… Continue reading Lost Osterode.

Beautiful Nature.

I absolutely love Nature. It is the most beautiful thing we have around us. For me, Nature is everything. Some of my favourite Photos were taken outdoors. Without Nature, I would have probably never really thought of starting Photography when I did. Back than, I had a small 36 Shot Disposable Camera, but in Nature,… Continue reading Beautiful Nature.

The crazy Journeys.

I absolutely love it to Travel. Usually, I take the easiest/ cheapest route to get to places. But sometimes, I chose the slightly crazier route. Or something goes terribly wrong. And than a standard old Journey turns into a crazy one. One example of a Journey gone wrong would be when I returned Home from… Continue reading The crazy Journeys.

I am a Mountain Man.

While I absolutely love to travel everywhere. But I would always prefer the Mountains to the Beach. I just absolutely love those beautiful, rugged Landscapes. While the Harz is technically a Mountainous Area, most of the Mountains here a covered with loads of Trees. A Mountain Road in the Harz. And while I absolutely love… Continue reading I am a Mountain Man.

I love Fachwerkhäuser.

Here in Osterode, Fachwerkhäuser, or Half-Timbered Houses, are quite a common sight, especially in the towns Centre. In fact, I currently live in a Fachwerkhaus. Fachwerkhäuser are actually quite a beautiful sight. Sometimes, their wooden frames are decorated quite intricate. Some are even slightly colourful. Fachwerkhäuser in the Waagestraße. I absolutely love Fachwerkhäuser. Every single… Continue reading I love Fachwerkhäuser.

Back at the WeltWald.

A few weeks ago, I visited the WeltWald Harz in Bad Grund. I had a great time there back then. So I did not hesitate when my Mom asked me if I wanted to come with her and and my Stepfather and joined them for a proper hike through the WeltWald. The Weather was supposed… Continue reading Back at the WeltWald.

Exploring Home.

I was born and grew up, for the most part, in the 90ties. And as a 90ties kid in a small German town, Osterode, I spent most of my waking hours in and around the Forest. We did not own a PlayStation or anything like that, but that was okay. In fact, I would not… Continue reading Exploring Home.

The Pfauenteiche.

The Pfauenteiche are three of the many Teiche around Clausthal. But they are much more than just that. Before and during World War 2, a TNT Factory was operating on one side of the Teiche, and the Area is still dangerously polluted and thus under permanent lock-down. The ‘Werk Tanne’, that is the Name of… Continue reading The Pfauenteiche.
