Actually, it's the high mountains that make me happy. But far too often I forget to enjoy all the little beauty spots at home. If you want to get something positive out of this difficult situation, that's exactly what it is: the imposed opportunity to explore nature on your doorstep. This is my "StayAtHome-Project": to go hiking in the vicinity of where I live.
I feel better after each hike. The fresh air, the extensive forests, the lakes big or small and the wild streams that exist in the Hannover region - all this is incredibly beautiful. This Collection should encourage you to explore your surroundings, if this is currently possible for you. Whether for a short walk, for an extended hike or simply to linger in a beautiful spot in nature.
Well, there is such a little thing 🦠 times a mess of everyday life. Everyone thinks about it. Maybe some of you belong to the risk group or worry about family and friends? Some of them are probably also about economic issues, if they are sent in short-time work or maybe (as with me 🤨) the whole professional existence is at stake.As always, nature gives us a lot of comfort - at least I think so. An extra long walk with Lotte in fine spring weather was just the thing today. For a better feeling, I even threw myself into hiking clothes and took the good camera with me. Wonderful how the babbling birds are busy preparing for the breeding season. Regardless of the daily standstill, colorful early bloomers force themselves into the daylight and the sun's rays even warm up. Let's take a look at nature a little without forgetting our social responsibility!I have planned to be outside a lot in the next few days, to explore and appreciate my home a little more. It is beautiful, even if there are no mountains here. Do you do that too? Show me your pictures. But above all: stand together and stay healthy.
Since we are currently not allowed to travel, we took the opportunity to explore our home country a bit. The round took us along the Wulbeck, a small brook in the Hanover region. Forest, meadow and field - everything was there. In summer, horses and cows are in the pastures, and even a flock of heather is at home here. Now, just in time for the beginning of spring, a lot of butterflies are on the move, flowers are blooming everywhere and hawks and buzzards are flying over the freshly plowed fields. Insanity, what is currently going on outside. Somehow everything seems fine in nature. And that's exactly why it's good to spend a lot of time there.

Today I almost fell on the covers. So it was the best idea to just go out today. As always, being outside really helped me. We shot almost 17 kilometers in our homeland and managed to delight in the little beauties of nature.If you want to find something positive in the current times, it is definitely for me that I now have time to explore my home a little more closely. What beautiful spots there are - even without mountains.Our quarry ponds, the small streams and the extensive forests are really wonderful. It is getting a little greener and juicier in nature every day. Even if this tour leads across the forest at one point, it was a lot of fun.
We did a short but super varied round today. The Brehlinger Berge are really - according to northern German understanding - mountains, so at least it goes up and down every now and then. Today we mainly hiked on small forest paths winding through the forest and open space.In addition, it goes past gravel ponds, on the first you can even swim in summer. We saw at least cormorants today. The section on the geopath is especially interesting for children. For them there is also a beautiful forest playground right at the start of the tour. At least I practiced balancing there. A tour that I would do again in a heartbeat.
And again I found such a nice spot in my home. Nature cannot be wilder than the Oldhorster Moor. While peat was previously obtained here as a heating material and the bog was artificially drained, the areas are now being renatured.The path leads along small paths along the many small and large water points in which peat mosses are already really lush green. The path leads us to the Kohlshorner gravel ponds, perfect for a long rest on the bank. On the way back we come through the Kalmia field (laurel rose), but it only blooms there in June / July. Shortly afterwards we have to cut our way fairly through the forest because the path is full of branches. But I really like a bit of adventure feeling.An extremely beautiful and varied hike, only the proximity to the A37 is a drop of bitterness.
A worthwhile winter hike around the Steinhuder Meer, even if your feet burn afterwards due to the many asphalt routes. We were very lonely in February and were able to enjoy the great winter landscape.If you hike there in summer or spring, you can only go half a lap and go by boat from Steinhude to Mardorf.
