About Uli

Der Weg ist das Ziel, so soll es bereits der chinesische Philosoph Konfuzius gesagt haben. Dieses Motto gilt für mich uneingeschränkt. Wie viel kann ich sehen, wenn ich eine Strecke zu Fuß gehe, statt zu fahren. In der "Langsamkeit" liegt die Chance, die Wunder der Natur, die sich am Wegesrand bieten, zu sehen und sich daran zu freuen. Ganz besonders im Frühjahr, wenn sich die ersten Wildblumen zeigen. Das Wandern entspannt mich und ist wie eine Meditation zur inneren Ruhe.
Meine bevorzugten Wandergebiete in Deutschland sind Harz und Südheide, die Mittelgebirge um Hannover, das Weserbergland, das Lippische Bergland und der Pfälzerwald. Und meine Lieblingsinsel ist die Isla La Palma mit ihrer Schroffheit, seine tiefen Tälern und Vulkanen. Für mich die Wanderinsel schlechthin, dort zieht es mich immer wieder hin.

      Today the weather did everything it could. On the way to Puntallana it was already raining so hard that we almost turned back. But on the hike the sun came out more and more. The coastal hiking trail GR 130 leads through deep barrancos such as the Nogales and San Juan and is very varied. It passes many

    1. Today we had nice, sunny weather. Where it is usually overcast and often foggy, on the drop-off to the Barranco de Angustias and the Caldera de Taburiente on the high trail to Torre el Time (GR 131), the sun was burning and made the already steep ascent quite exhausting. We were rewarded with great views

    1. Unsettled weather with local rain showers is also a good thing if you have the necessary gear. We have never seen so many rainbows on hikes as we do today. Right at the beginning at San Mauro Abad we were happy, and since there were repeated showers to the north, the rainbows accompanied us the whole

    1. A beautiful path, but also a challenge due to the differences in altitude after many weeks in which we were not able to hike. Actually, we only wanted to go to Tinizara and from there take the 110 bus back to Tijarafe, but since we were quite early, we added the almost 6 km on the GR 130 to Tijarafe

    1. Our initial hike on La Palma pretty much fell into the water. Started in the sun, it quickly covered and then we were hit with heavy showers again and again. We had to state that we have never had so much rain on many hikes so far. Since the actually very nice path in the first part mostly ran in the

    1. Spring in winter, that's what it felt like. Mild, lots of sun and also great cloud pictures. My path led me past some of the Ricklinger gravel ponds and I was in good company. At the sight of the deep blue water you want to jump in right away, but we'd rather wait a little longer. Hopefully it won't

    1. Winter can be beautiful too. An absolutely clear air at lousy temperatures, but what is the thick jacket for. Hiking is still fun there. Especially when you look at the artefacts of the days of frost: leaves beautifully decorated with ice crystals and the ice on the canals in the Eilenriede that has taken on strange shapes.

    1. At first the fog hung over the Deister, but then the sun fought its way through and the yellow-red-brown beech leaves began to glow. And the sun accompanied us for 2-3 hours before it got hazy again.

      The starting point of our hike was the car park at the cemetery in Wennigser Mark, from there we went

    1. Due to circumstances, I took an unusual route today. Start in the Heideviertel on Karl-Wiechert-Allee, still very cloudy weather. But then: The Hermann-Löns-Park greeted me with bright sunshine, as if it had just been waiting for me. Beautifully designed with wide lawns interrupted by groups of trees

    1. Petrus treated us to nice weather today and so during our hike from the edge of the forest above Rinteln and later from the crest of the Weser Mountains, there were always great views of the Weser Valley and the Lippe Mountains. Unfortunately, the Luhdener cliff tower was closed today, there you can
