Alarm at 7. I slept well, we leave the window open at night for fresh air, so the room is chilly but I'm warm under the thick blanket. We already have a plan for today, so it's just the usual routine to get ready. I run out of ham when fixing lunch, so use the… Continue reading Dicke Tannen
Alarm at 7, up at 8. I realized yesterday evening why we're getting up later, it's because we stay up late, reading in bed. Definitely a necessary part of holidaying. It's pretty sunny outside, though according to wetter.de it's only 3° C. I go out to get our lunch bread rolls and it's perfect walking… Continue reading Loop to Sorge
Alarm at seven, breakfast at eight. I remember that I have two bananas here, left over from home, and decide to have a toasted bread slice with choco and then banana slices on top. It's a small banana, but also a small slice, so the pieces are about 15 mm thick, takes some coordination to… Continue reading Down from the Wurmberg
Alarm at 7, up at 8. If you've read yesterday's post, you'll know we don't have breakfast., but according to Google both the bakery and grocery nearby in the village should be open, so I put on some warm clothes and get out there. The bakery has bread rolls (which we need for lunch) and… Continue reading Hike in the Harz

We drive off around ten with a full trunk, but are by now smart enough to keep the hiking stuff on the back seat, we'll need that soon! This morning we… Continue reading Squirrel!
The cell phone alarm starts ringing at seven and when it wakes me, I realize today is a day off and we don't actually have plans. So I stay in bed, reading a book. After Arne also opens his eyes about an hour later, we get up and discuss the entertainment options for the day… Continue reading 101 Waltzes and Polkas
When we get up this morning the sun is shining and there's not a cloud to see in the sky! We decide on a 15 km walk right on the border with Germany, once again from the 'Pleasure Walks' book/website. We drive through Eupen (listening to ancient Pure Music cd's - or rather the Spotify… Continue reading a beautiful day
