At the Zwischenahner Meer

So right now it is back to School for me. And while I do live in the Schwarzwald, that actually took me up to the North. Over the Weekend, I then had some Time to explore the Area around Bad Zwischenahn, and while the Weather was truly awful, I did still enjoy it a lot.… Continue reading At the Zwischenahner Meer

Castles in the Schwarzwald

Since I arrived here in the Schwarzwald, I already came by three Castles. I visited two of them with my Family, and I drove past the third many Times so far. But as I found out, those three are only the Beginning. Apparently, there are many more in the Area. In Zavelstein. The first Castle… Continue reading Castles in the Schwarzwald

Watching Ships

During my Time in Brunsbüttel, I lived relatively close to both the Elbe and the NOK. Because of that, I was just sitting out there by the Water pretty much every Evening watching Ships going past. For the most Time, there were not really any huge Ships around, but it was still great. I even… Continue reading Watching Ships

At the Seehundestation
