We have long been dissatisfied with our old homepage. We didn’t like the colors or the appearance, even the small pictures.
Conclusion was that we have neglected the old site, we do not care about and the issues not filled with photos.
We have thought carefully about whether we can afford a new home should, but then, Nicole – our friend – said: Come, I design a beautiful website for you, and a pretty logo at that.
The logo you have learned already know – it is our name, when it was composed and read in German.
A dragonfly = Libelle in German.
Now, finally, our new, very nice (isn’t it? ) site goes to the start.
New colors, simple design and filled with many, many photographs.
We invite you to look at our new website and look forward to hear if you so like it how we like it.
What our homepage with the theme of change has to be done? It has a lot to do!!!
We now proceed with new ideas and a great pleasure and fun to the shooting, for us, for you and all of our readers.
Each change brings new life, new impulse – every change, whether big or small has the individual meaning. For us a big one.
Today I take you one last time to Ireland.
This time we visit Inishmore, the largest island of the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland.
The island is 14km long and 3km wide. From Galway we took a speedboat over the lake on the tranquil island.
There is not much on Inishmore.
Those who expect a major city, is wrong. There are a lot of solitude, tranquility, lots of wind, lots of green. And there are some pre-Christian sites, you can visit, and the 100m steep limestone cliffs.
The sea roars, the wind blows strong and it’s just a gigantic spectacle.
On the Aran Iceland I stayed one day and one night, I’m not driven bicycle (such as relaxing), but I made a long trek across the island.
The stone fences to protect the hard-landscaped gardens before the rainy sponges, and they are found everywhere on the island.
The black / white photos remind me a little of the early days of the 20th Century. I can well imagine how it has used to live here: sparse and a life full of hard work.
The last week was wonderful and hot summer weather, as we might wish since mid-June. We spent the days in the pool,
swam, jumped and slid, have read, eat chips and always enjoyed the cool water.
Do you know those vacation days at the pool, if you’re lazy?
When one is very tired from the sun and the many swimming?
If soft rustle of the leaves of the trees? And the sun’s rays sparkle?
If the scent of sunscreen and chlorine water blowing around the nose?
If you drive at night in the car and can open all the windows because the air is still so warm.
If you listen to music and blow the hair in the wind? If it smells, smells like hot summer nights?
When the thoughts come and go and we no longer hold them?
And if for one minute to infinity is?
With the bus I drove about 2 – 3 hours across the island (everything was very flat, green and clear:)) and got out in the small town of Galway.
Unfortunately I have no pictures of Galway, but the city is welcoming, there are many small shops, where you can shop to your heart’s content, there are many dogs , and many cozy pubs.
With a bike, I broke up for two weeks to explore the Connemara region. Connemara consists primarily of heath and moorland, to the mountains in the north Connemara I did not come.
It went through tiny villages, along the rivers and lakes and castles, which had been converted into luxury hotels.
Sometimes I slept in a tent, or in Bed & Breakfast – very convenient. You mustn’t pre-book anything, you just knock on the door and asked whether a room is free.
One aim, among other things was that Roundstone village, a popular tourist destination with many craft shops.
