spring days with Frieda


Before  today clouds, rain and cool weather reached us, we had beautiful weather for several days.
We often walked with Frieda in the sun and in the fields.
Frieda is a mouse-hunter –
she is fast and she looks for mice, where I do not see anything.

Corner View – self portrait

It isn’t easy to photograph a self-portrait.
I love taking pictures, but not taking pictures of myself.

MondayTrip – Denmark


When my daughter was still small, we traveled to Denmark to the sea.
More precisely, according to Rømø.
We traveled with a friend and her little boy. We especially spent the days at sea .
The children were playing in the sand, we read and did not do much.
Once we went to Legoland and even the island of Sylt.
The rest of the time we spent with sweet idleness.

Yesterday after work …


… we made a trip to the Altmühltal and a comfortable walk through the rock world.
The weather was pleasantly warm, not too hot, not too cold.
Although the first green on the trees and shrubs only tentatively comes through, the spring is not far off.
And the dogs – Frieda and Charlie – had a lot of fun.
My first long walk after work – I did not think it can be relaxing.
But yes!

MondayTrip – Southern Corsica III


One of the most beautiful parts of Corsica is the Gulf of Porto (UNESCO, World Heritage Site).
Porto is a small village with about 600 inhabitants, many nice dogs :),
a beautiful beach, a Genoese tower of the 15th century, and surrounded by eucalyptus forests.
I have eaten there in a small local restaurant an excellent soup:
Soup de poisson – fish soup with lots of garlic, grated cheese and toasted bread.

Gulf of Porto

You can’t see the road, but it leads in the middle of the wooded hill.
From there you have a beautiful view of the gulf.


Bonifacio from the viewing point of Capo Pertusato.

In the south of Corsica – the very edge – there is the impressive town of Bonifacio.
Impressive especially the location of the medieval upper town. 70 m above sea level,
are the houses on a narrow spit of land, a chalk cliff.

Could you sleep in one of the houses that stand on the hill, at night in peace?
I don’t!

As the sea washes away the stone, develop fascinating caves,
which can be visited on a walk by the sea.

MondayTrip – Northern Corsica II

 I have traveled to Corsica to the old ways – first by train from Ratisbon  to Genoa and from Genoa to Bastia with the ship.
The trip lasted the whole night, I had no cabin and
I sleep, like the other backpackers on the deck under the stars (very romantic;)).

In Corsica, I am traveled mostly by bus.
That was a little awkward, because I have visited Corsica in March,
and the buses were not yet as common as in the summer tourist season.

This is the view of Bastia from the ship.

At this place there was a corner in the old men played bocce.

This is the western side of Corsica near Galeria.

Spring in Corsica = splendor of flowers on the countryside

The sea has so many different blue colors. Is’nt it wonderful?
