When I was visiting here in my childhood, I looked over the years at the border fortifications of the GDR. Here was the end of the terrain. Now the opportunity arose to walk a bit along the border strip from the west to the east. At the end I visited the border museum Schifflersgrund. So much history.

Back to childhood after more than 30 years. The Volkspark as always. We used to go sledging from the mountain. I only discovered the French cemetery during a guided tour. The paths behind the Bodelschwingh used to feel unreachable through fences, now open to everyone. Much of the Franz Feste was demolished and renovated. When the new viewing platform is ready, I would like to experience the Rhine in flames.

On the trail of my wife's childhood. Some things are still unchanged after more than 50 years, others can no longer be recognized. If you played here and climbed there, the time flies by hiking and the one or the other highlight was also part of my childhood.

If not on vacation then at least in Kroppacher Switzerland. I've always wanted to go there. Beautiful circular route over hill and dale. After two-thirds the question about the nest or returns. Ok is more like getting wet? The woman goes first and if she can do it, I have to. (Not that easy at all, the successor made a little acquaintance in the water with his over-motivated jumps) When we were over there, the path was gone. Going back is out of the question and so we made our own way back.

Today we went to Lorch-Lorchausen. The Rhein-Wisper - Glück Trail has called. I didn't pay attention to the approach and hey presto, I was on a ferry across the Rhine for the first time in years. Part of it was relatively quiet - everything in the direction of the place and the view with the bank was overcrowded. It was clear in the weather. I liked it and think it's even more beautiful in summer. But then at an earlier time.
