Stonehenge – England

Revisiting Stonehenge after 20 years.The remarkable feat of engineering—some of the stones came from dozens of miles away—and acts like a huge astronomical calendar, aligned with the summer and winter equinox and still keeping track of the moon after more than 5,000 years.

Neuschwanstein walk

Last Sunday we headed west of Munich for the Alps – that is, the more moderate mountains of the Allgaeu. I picked an easy mountain hike – The Great Tegelberg Circle – for the family, including our Labrador, who climbs like a mountain goat. The route offers lots of views, but requires a bit of...

Glai Hamas – Mountain Biking in the Baverian Alps

By fallen Angel “Glai Hamas” – “we are almost there”, said the fellow biker when he passed me with a soft Munich dialect.

Miniatur Wunderlands Bauabschnitt Flughafen

  Herzlichen Glückwusch für das erfolgreiches Flughafenprojekt. Wir haben die Schulferien genutzt und so sind mein Sohn und ich schnell mal nach Hamburg gefahren um den neu eröffneten Minaturflughafen zu bewundern.
