“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

***

That is what I would like to give my child for life.
And a large portion of love that will always be here,
no matter where she will ever go.

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).

20141011-DSC_6721284

The sign which I had in remembrance.

20141011-DSC_6727284

Frieda has fun.

20141011-DSC_6736284

20141011-DSC_6739284

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

20141011-DSC_6740284

20141011-DSC_6742284

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

20141011-DSC_6749284

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

20141011-DSC_6759284

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

20141011-DSC_6763284

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

20141011-DSC_6764284

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.

20141011-DSC_6775284

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

And now I am very curious about your experiences.

CornerView – stranger

Last weekend we decided to make a short trip to enjoy the wonderful autumn.
And what lends itself more than the Alps in Bavaria?

I was not born in Bavaria, but I moved here in my youth.
Bavaria is my home.

However, despite the many years it feels like I’m a stranger in Bavaria.
It begins with the language.
Bavarian is a dialect that you – if actual Bavarian is spoken – do not understand readily.
At the first time at the new school was very strange for me.
I understood nothing.
Now after many years I understand the language clearly.
I even think I speak a little bit of Bavarian, or at least a German.

The Bavarians consider themselves to be German, but actually they would like a country in itself.
Encapsulated from Germany, a separate republic.
Or even monarchy, as it want the Bavarian royalists.
The actual Bavarian restrict the Bavarian country also.
The Franconia, which belongs partly to Bavaria, is already the land of Prussia.
For everything above a certain imaginary boundary is not Bavarian but prussian.
Although it still belongs to Bavaria.
Strange, do not you think?

Bavaria is strongly connected with the church.
There are many customs and traditions, I do not know and also do not celebrated.
But I’m very interested.
Even the Bavarian food is partly another, than I was accustomed to as a child.
Roast pork and dumplings, a sour potato salad, apple strudel.

Bavaria is a rich country.
It’s a country in which the children receive a good education.
For example, the Bavarian High School is one of the most difficult schools of Germany
= education is not uniform in Germany.
Bavaria’s conservative, christian and yet so colorful.
Bavarians are often grumpy and have a quirky sense of humor.
And I love it.
Bavaria is a very beautiful country with a different nature.
The highlights include Munich, the subalpine lakes and the Alps.
And a few castles.

The best known is Castle Neuschwanstein in Hohenschwangau.
It is about two hours away from us.
And we also visited it on our short trip.

We thought we walk to the castle, buy tickets and make an English guide
(it is only possible to get into the castle with a guide, and we want to practice English).
We did not expect the masses of tourists that flock on a beautiful autumn to Neuschwanstein.
Four hours would have lasted until the next guide.
We have decided to come back on a cold winter day.

Bavaria is well worth a visit – I can put any to the heart.
But until then … I will show you more of the country in which I live.
Let’s make together a year travel through Bavaria … do you like to do?
And then you will no longer be a stranger.

Castle Neuschwanstein from afar.
And on the first image right beside the mountain called Säuling. (2047 m)
Exactly 20 years ago (madness is not it?), I have climbed this mountain with a group of friends.
We all got to know in our training as a nurse  and are always friends.
Up there I experienced chamois in the wild and celebrated the summit above the clouds.

Top image photographed my daughter.
She stood on the bridge Marie, of which one has a wonderful view of Neuschwanstein Castle.
The bridge was named after Queen Marie and performs on the Pöllatschlucht.
And it is very, very high.

20141012-DSC_6825285
In addition to the Castle Neuschwanstein is only a few kilometers away Castle Hohenschwangau.
The castle was the first one and Bavarian king Ludwig II has there spent his nursery.
Castle Neuschwanstein was built later by Ludwig II.
He wanted to idealize his idea of ​​a knight’s castle from the Middle Ages.

Autumn in Bavaria

20141012-DSC_6864285

This is a typical house with murals from the Bavarian Alps.
Because where I live there is rarely painted houses,
because it depends in what area you are.

20141012-DSC_6861285

20141012-DSC_6854285

Here you can see a typical Bavarian food:
Bratwürstl + Kartoffeln + Sauerkraut (fried sausages with potatoes and sauerkraut)

CornerView – travel

Tours/France

Visiting foreign countries and foreign cities is always an adventure,
especially if you do not understand the language.
It a great pleasure to discover new:
drink and eat,
people and buildings,
and to learn for life.

Travelling is something very fulfilling.

Travel becomes something more special when you visit friends
and they show their own country.
It again gets a little more insight than you would only exclusively as a tourist.

Last summer we visited Elsa and her family.
It was an adventure for us, and it was definitely like coming home.

CornerView – a good read

a good read –

currently I’m reading a detective story, a nice detective story, but not a creepy thriller.

A detective story with a sympathetic Commissioner who has a few quirks,

and comes on sometimes unusual way to a solution.

The best part is that the book is in Brittany.

It is reported by the manners and customs,

the everyday,

the food and drink,

the legends and the people,

and all that flows into a nice detective story.

The author is actually German but lives in Brittany – it’s called.

CornerView – darkness & light

 Hello friends,
I hope you have good experiences the Christmas and New Year celebration!

And be ready once again for a year full of Corner Views?
I am pleased to see you all again.

Here and there I’ve already shown pictures from Brittany.
Beautiful, highly recommended.
And a long report from our holiday in France will follow … soon.
Still, I can not leave it and
I have to show you here and there a few photos from Brittany.

Darkness and light – which is quite close to each other in Brittany.
The light is wonderfully bright, so bright in the sea.
And yet, within a few minutes, as out of nowhere, pulls darkness of the sea on land.
And a warm, light-filled summer day changes to a dark stormy day.

Christmas … before and after

How was your Christmas, friends? Have you spent a nice time?

A few days before we celebrated Christmas, we have renovated our living room.
I have many books, and I have finally sorted out and
keep only those who really close to my heart.
I have disposed of the old shelves and exchanged for new ones.
Painted walls, built Ikea furniture, lamps installed …
only the couch that we wanted to keep.
It is very convenient … not just for us.
Now, it again looks a bit neater, stocked and tidy.

CornerView – view on my street

In my street live many old people,
since their homes were built.
And a few families who are newly involved.
Here live many, many cats and a few dogs.
Sometimes you talk with the neighbor over the fence,
but there are hardly any closer contact between people.
In my street not much happens.
Actually, nothing happens.
Few pedestrian, but some cars.
Sometimes a few children who ride a bicycle or skateboard.
A village street.
Nothing more.

This is the view of the road, where I live:

The view from my living room window onto the street.

20131203-DSC_3946337

The view when I stand in front of the house, to the right.

20131203-DSC_3948337

The view when I stand in front of the house, to the left.

20131203-DSC_3950337

The view of the house where I live.
The left window is my living room window,
the right window is the bedroom window,
and the middle window is the window in the stairwell.

Corner View – pets

Francesca gave me the idea to tell you about our trip with Frieda.
Sometime in the summer she asked if it’s hard to travel with our dog.
Basically no.
Quite a lot you can not do with a dog.
But you know that as soon as a dog receives in the family,
and decides it needs to go with the family in every holiday, on each trip.
And once you know that, you look to its destinations from other points.

Germany is a relatively dog-friendly country,
dogs are allowed almost everywhere to go into the restaurant, the cafe, the hotel.
There are special dog beaches by the sea, and especially popular are trips to the mountains.
But from Germany I do not want to tell you,
because I prefer to travel far away instead of staying in the near of my home.

We considered and deliberate …
there are many places and countries wishing we like to see and visit.
We chose France because everywhere we read on the internet about traveling with a dog,
France ranked first as dog friendly country.
And yes, it’s true.

There are many, many accommodations for travelers with dog,
there are many, many dog ​​owners in France,
and the most beautiful, there are many endless beaches where dogs are allowed.
Most dogs run off leash there,
so there are always meetings between dogs that run very peaceful.
A little sniffing, a little play … and every dog ​​went his own way again.
The beaches were very clean despite many dogs. The dogs had all well-behaved.

Our Frieda felt very, very well  near the sea.
She could run endlessly,
there was so much to discover ( algae) and sniffing ( and again algae).
Frieda – she does not like water – even went a few steps into the sea.
One evening Frieda discovered a cancer that ran across the beach.
She was fascinated.
Sniffing, licking over it … and no, not eating, just watching.
