About So, nun aber los

Meine Hauptaktivität hier nenne ich „Laundern“. Hat aber nix mit Waschen zu tun. Sondern ist daraus entstanden, dass ich eigentlich gerne sowohl das Laufen (für die Fitness) als auch das Wandern (für den Genuss) intensiv ausüben würde. Mein recht absorbierender Beruf und das Leben als Vater einer wundervollen Familie lassen dies jedoch zeitlich nicht zu. Und so bin ich darauf verfallen, mich laufend durch die Landschaft zu bewegen, zugleich aber bei Sehenswürdigkeiten anzuhalten und diese mir mit Muße anzuschauen.Gelegentlich werden ferner Unternehmungen auf Geschäftsreisen, mit der Familie und/oder mit Freunden eingestreut. So kommt ein wohl manchmal etwas erratischer Mix von Aktivitäten zustande.Wichtig sind mir schließlich Gelassenheit und Humor. Wer bei mir rumstöbert, sollte die Dinge idealerweise nicht zu ernst nehmen und Wort- und Flachwitze wie auch den einen oder anderen gepflegten Unfug aushalten. 😉Die Teilnahme am Punktesystem habe ich, da komoot der Wille fehlt, dessen offensichtliche Defizite zu beseitigen, am 10. Juli 2021 abgeschaltet.Wer mal mit“laundern“ möchte: sonunaberlos@gmail.com

    1. So, nun aber los

      Münster: Not only Boerne and Thiel have their place of work here, but the city was also mine in the second half of the nineties, before I was drawn to the other end of the world. It was a unique time: young, little money but independent and responsible only for oneself, trying out many different facets of life. Student life.But it is true that there is a time and a place in life for everything and everyone. And so I don't mourn the time afterwards, but just as much enjoy being able to experience how I have developed since then. Nevertheless, I always enjoy coming back to the place where I did my student deeds.Because Münster, too, continues to develop in spite of all its tradition. The city laid the foundation for its current popularity with the decision to rebuild the completely destroyed old town around the Prinzipalmarkt after the Second World War, largely based on the historical models and not, like many other cities, on exposed aggregate concrete and car-friendly urban planning according to the fashion of the 50s set. Without prejudice to this, the city has managed to set architectural accents in new buildings as well and to appear "stylish" with the mix of old and new.Today we went for a stroll through the city while observing the greatest possible C precautionary measures (and in my case also freshly boosted). Although the impetus was on the needs of the women (i.e. shopping), I was able to slip away from time to time for a little snapping and indulge in memories.Was not born here, but was only born here:

      Mother-in-law had her birthday during the week. We celebrated that yesterday in the small 1Gplus group (without using false vaccination certificates). My in-laws have always mastered their life with a great zest for life, despite their not always easy living circumstances (if interested, the background can be read here: komoot.de/tour/160560176). And since they retired a few years ago, they have really blossomed again: They travel through world history, go to concerts, go on excursions, etc. - in short: they enjoy life (although some of their activities since Big C, of course Are restricted from time to time).In this sense, today's lap revolves around Lenz in autumn: namely, around the two neighboring colonies Lenz and Lenz II. Quiet and contemplative Altmark; not all that exciting, but nice and rural. Still not recommended for imitation. Because the crossing of the ICE route on the main road at Miesterhorst essentially manages without footpaths and cycle paths and is therefore not without risk at times other than Sunday morning. Furthermore, there are plenty of rust-brown nests of the oak processionary moth on the oaks near Lenz II, so that the route should hardly be walkable in summer. Therefore only 2 out of 10 in total.My mother-in-law is a big fan of Ms. Fischer. I can't help but fulfill her musical wish; but this version still works:

      I'm a widower this weekend (min Fru is with a friend in the annual wellness weekend, this time somewhere near Lüneburg). I have to look after teenagers, bellwurst, rabbits and the house. A long Launderrunde is therefore impractical.But the opportunity arose for a father-daughter venture. Fortunately, our young ladies are interested in art. And so they were actually thrilled when I suggested visiting the exhibition "Van Gogh - the immersive experience". This is currently still a guest in Bremen until February 27, 2022, namely in the BLG Forum. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a room in which pictures by van Gogh are brought to life through light projections and sound in such a way that the viewer feels right in the middle of them. More details here:van-gogh-experience.comBecause I got up early, we got there a little early and took a few steps through Bremen's Überseestadt, currently Bremen's largest urban development project, to warm up.I can highly recommend the exhibition. It conveys both the genius and the madness of this exceptional artist very intensively.And the two Graces also enjoyed it. Orchestra:

      After a professional appointment in Cologne, I met Alexander aka Nordpol, who showed me some aspects of his city and stations of his work in Cologne.In terms of urban planning, there are more beautiful cities than Cologne (and I'm not saying that now because I lived in Düsseldorf for a few years). But what defines the city is the attitude towards life: relaxed, tolerant and very proud of home: you have your own dialect, your own beer (or something like that) and with the carnival also a fifth season. All the local patriotism can be exhausting for outsiders. But if you get involved, a tour of Cologne is simply a great experience.By the way, Alexander is not entirely innocent of the fact that some time ago I stopped hunting for classic postcard motifs and since then have been taking a closer look at what is off the beaten track.Alexander, it was a pleasure for me to get to know you personally now, thank you for the great tour! You can find Alexander's recording here:komoot.de/tour/557632037And at some point we can manage that with your long-planned visit to Bremen.But today it was about your hometown since the late 1980s and it is often sung about:

      Heude, dear people, went to Hude in the Oldenburg region. Even though when I opened my eyes this morning and heard the rain pattering on the roof in the pitch black outside, the temptation was great to just lie there. But I have a reputation to lose and I'm still going - and I was lucky. Because when I arrived in Hude it was still dark and for about the first kilometer it was still trickling. But then it stayed dry and later there were even subtle appearances of sun!From the parking lot at the monastery (which I only touched briefly and otherwise saved for the finale) I first set off for the Witte Moor to walk over the boardwalk there into the Holler Moor. Already a successful start; I like moor, especially when it apparently inspires its neighbors creatively and decoratively.Having escaped the bog, I followed a trail southwards, after a few kilometers through the forest and in between, running parallel to a railway line, to reach the so-called sculpture bank. This is home to sculptures by the sculptor Wolf E. Schultz, who has been a son of the community since 1983. There are some wonderfully bizarre and bizarre figures to marvel at. Anyone who knows me knows that I really like that too.Yes, and then on to the finale, the ruins of the Hude monastery. Founded as a Cistercian monastery in 1232, it achieved prosperity through land donations which it received after the defeat of the Stedinger against the clergy in 1234 at the Battle of Altenesch. After several changes of ownership due to the usual twists and turns of those times (the monastery belonged among other things to the diocese of Münster in the meantime), it was dissolved in 1536 as a result of the effects of the Reformation. The current ruinous condition is due to the fact that large parts of the buildings were used as a quarry for recycled building material (even if it was called something different at the time) before the von Witzleben family acquired the property in 1687. This still lives in the buildings that have been preserved to this day. And I like ruins too ...Literally the second I unlocked my car, it started raining again.All in all a very exciting and varied route: route with only a few lengths: 8 out of 10.Chapel:

      On the eve of All Hallows 'Eve (English "All Hallows' Eve", but somehow muddled up over the years) the Irish originally committed himself, later the North Americans all the more jokes in view of the gloomy, hazy and therefore eerie season of the year.When I was on a school exchange in Canada in the early 1990s, these customs were still largely unknown in Germany and a new experience for me. Since then, like some things from North America (think of Valentine's Day or Mother's Day, which contrary to rumors to the contrary was not an invention of the Nazis, but also comes from the USA), it has also established itself in Germany.Not everyone likes that. I find that very interesting and, above all, I just like to watch how people try to bring a little excitement and variety into their lives - even if it is by decorating their houses. Such house decorations, not necessarily always tasteful, but definitely eye-catching, form the thematic focus of my tour today ...The chapel is haunted:

      A cousin of my wife and her husband (i.e. from the cousin, not my wife's, otherwise that would be me and polygamy is known to be illegal) decided a few years ago to say goodbye to the daily routine of the office and to an old farm to renovate and transform it into a celebration, conference and holiday location (new German: event location).This is now called "Farm Inn" and is located in the small hamlet of Kakerbeck approx. 30 km north of Wolfsburg. We had wanted to go there for a long time, to celebrate the opening as well as the wedding of the people mentioned above, but our favorite virus repeatedly thwarted our plans.This weekend, however, the completion of another construction phase was celebrated, the Hof-Café. And so we could finally step through the table with the family again, followed for me by an early Sunday exploration of the area. Namely in the form of a run from Kakerbeck southwards to the edge of the huge VW test track. From there on to a forest nature trail. But I haven't seen bugs in one place or the other.Anyway, I ran back through a place with the beautiful name Eutzen. The route is very nice: 7 out of 10.A nice little break in between to switch off, even if we are back home in the meantime and work is calling tomorrow:

      I am in Munich every now and then, but somehow I have neglected to visit the Hirschgarten as well as the Nymphenburg Palace. This had to be made up for.We can read about the deer garden that it goes back to a pheasantry, which after an interim use as a silkworm breeding functioned as a hunting ground for the aristocracy close to the city, in which fallow deer and deer were settled. Today a popular park, in which instead of game (even if there is still a small enclosure), beer is hunted in the large beer garden, which inexplicably was not open this morning.Afterwards to the Nymphenburg, which is actually a baroque palace, which impresses with its spacious, symmetrical facilities and the associated park. This does not open its doors until 6:00 a.m. Fortunately, I had researched this late riser opening time in advance and waited accordingly before starting my run, which was also worthwhile in that the park is completely unlit and it was initially very dark to run even with a flashlight. That made the moment all the more beautiful when I greeted the park and palace with the first dawn.A wonderful route: 9 out of 10Consecrated chapel:

      Well, actually my job even takes me to Paris for two nights, but I just couldn't help but win the tour title 😇And I didn't produce a hydraulic vest either, just a barrel. From the hotel I wanted to go over to Emmanuel's small box for a macaroons - but he still seemed to be doing Bubu and I didn't want to disturb, especially since the guards with their machine guns looked quite grim and barked at me that I didn't take any photos (have but still steals one) or shouldn't walk on the street ...Instead, I walked an arc across the Champs Elysées to see Christo's posthumous triumph in all its glory - unfortunately I was a week late 😔Then we went to the Trocadéro and lo and behold: the view from the plateau to the little tower of the Eiffel was hidden behind a site fence. But further down in the park he was eagerly admired. On the Marsfeld I ran then with a couple of happily squeaking rats to the bet. And even if my legs were slowly getting tired after a long break from running due to a large number of professional and private obligations, I was subsequently able to avoid being admitted to the Invalides Cathedral and trudged back to the hotel.Nonetheless, it was fun: 8 out of 10Waltz:

      On the Day of German Unity, a tour of the memory of why Germany was divided in the first place: A walk with my parents around a big blob of the "bird shit of history" (as a new right wing wrote a few years ago), the submarine Bunker Valentin.Thousands of forced laborers had to build a monstrous bunker here under the Nazis, in which submarines were to be built and then released into the Weser for military operations. Many of the forced laborers left their lives there. At all only bearable in view of the fact that the bunker could never start its work, as the brown spook had ended shortly before.And how important remembrance continues to be, is made clear by the picture that evoked the tour title: How can one consider a place of suffering and death for thousands as a suitable place to hang a love lock?Chapel:
