CornerView – experience

I want to tell you of our experience
– our hiking experience –
in the last fall.
We stayed for two nights in the lovely village of Grainau at the Austrian border and below the Zugspitze.
Our goal was to go to the Coburg hut (1917m) in Tyrol.
Described as an easy and casual hike.
In the breakfast room of the guesthouse was a trail map
that I intensively studied during while I ate a whole-grain bread and a boiled egg.
Very cozy.
I coined myself, especially the sign Coburg hut.

It was a beautiful autumn morning,
the sun was shining,
dewdrops wet meadows,
forests are wonderful yellow and red.
We walked cheerfully.
Frieda had a lot of fun
and we were looking forward to lunch at the lodge, we should reach 2-3 hours after approx.

But everything changed.
The normal way for normal once-a-year walker runs along a good path over the Ehrwalder Alm
continues through dense forest to Seeebensee
and then to Coburg hut.
All in all not very exhausting.

We took the wrong turn.
We took the other path that led to the hut.
And the path even had indeed looked shorter on the map,
but was much, much more strenuous and therefore took longer.
It was a climbing wall, which we had not, of course, want to go.
Now you must know that I the only one who wore hiking boots.
My daughter wore normal fabric sneakers,
and Frieda was with us.
Feasible the normal way for any dog.
A climbing wall, however, I would never have taken with Frieda.

It took a long time before we realized that we had gone wrong.
Too long to reverse and start moving over again.
And so we stood in sneakers and with a dog on a climbing wall.
We thought about for quite a while.
And then we decided to take a chance.

I can tell you, I sweated blood and water with fear.
Not because it was very steep. No, not because height vertigo, but I did not even look down.
I was very uncomfortable because my daughter wore simple fabric sneaker
with which you should certainly take no climbing wall.
And because Frieda was with us and we had to lift them sometimes on the next section.
Dangerous and I see us still crash in my worst dreams.

Of course, we took a long time because we were not particularly sporty.
And then I was all ready, as I had been walking ten hours.

Conclusion: Next time I will not leave me on my “good” card memory.

The gentle start of the hike with view of the Zugspitze (2962m).

The sign which I had in remembrance.

Frieda has fun.

Here we already have the climbing wall behind us.
Wou would see us sitting with trembling knees and tousled hair.

This was the still going way to the hut (again easy).

Fascinating situated in color and in absolute tranquility in a rock basin:
Seebensee (1657m)

Seebensee from the other side –
the weather constantly changed between rain, sun and dense fog.

Directly behind the Coburg hut is the Drachensee, also in a fascinating color.

Coburg Cottage – where you can get wonderful Austrian meals:

– Dumpling Soup
– Goulash with dumplings
– roast pork
– bacon bread
– lettuce

and you can spend the night here.

The fog there is impressive. It comes with fast speed and you see nothing.
The fog is not to be underestimated.

The way back we went as normal once-a-year walker.

And now I am very curious about your experiences.

CornerView – walk of my dreams

I have a lot of dreams,
and despite that I do not follow.
Mostly not.
I’ve learned that it mostly turns out differently than I planned.
And since this is very often been the case,
one day I decided
I do not plan any longer.
I dream, and what will be, will be.
Whether I pursue the dream or not.

But I have also learned that when dreams shatter,
then that makes sense.
Mostly.
There is a reason why the dream went away to nothing.
I understand it until later, sometimes and most.

CornerView – favorite plate

I do not have a favorite plate,
but I have favorite food that belong on a plate.
I love Indian and Italian,
Asian and Mexican.
And I love French food.
I love that food what I do not get every day.
Food that tastes to me like travel and adventure.

***

When I was in Tours, we visited the market halls.
It was fascinating to me.
I have spotted lots of delicious and a lots of exotic,
and when you ask me,
what I would buy, I would have bought almost all the empty hall.
(especially a lot of cheese)

CornerView – twinkle

I can only advise you: visit Brittany.
There you can find  wonderful motifes for every topic.

The cobwebs we have discovered in the dunes, in the early morning
when we went for a walk with Frieda.
As the sun rose, the grass sparkled like a sea full of diamonds.

Happy New Year – and my favorite cake

DSC_7484-2

2015 – a new year

I give away the old one.
And receive the new one with open arms.
What is in store for me, the new year? What I’m going to demand from it?
I have experienced a milestone birthday last year.
One from which I’m no longer young, but also not too old.
An intermediate.
There is still much to do,
but I know that I no longer manage everything, no longer experience and wipe out
what I’ve done and dreamed at a young age.
Not easy for me.
I admit it.
Time is running fast, and I want it now calling, the life.
I want more of everything.
I want spectacular, adventurous, more exciting,
I want more wealth and more feeling.
I let it go by the last year,
I let it go by my age,
It was not so easy to complete the round number.
For me
And now it is done.

This year I want more,
more photograph for you and with you,
more blogging for you and with you,
more write for you,
more travel and do more things who good for me …
and I want to tell you about it.

And first I give you my favorite cake recipe.
Very fat and very chocolaty … but very, very tasty.
