    Hiking from Troisdorf to Siegburg and Christmas market!

    Just like every year, the Christmas season arrived also for this year. “Just like every year” is of course only if we stupidly look at the calendar; we are back in the middle of another corona wave right now. For now, the government decided not to impose any particular restriction on the daily life, but let’s see how long it’s going to drag on like this.

    Hiking from Bad Breisig to Remagen

    I don’t know exactly how I came to this idea, but I thought it might be nice to walk somewhere in the south of Bonn, even if it’s outside of North Rhine Westphalia. And so I took the trail from…

    Hiking at Hagen Wehringhausen

    I wrote last week that winter has arrived. Things didn’t change a lot this week. The only thing is that for some reason this weekend got spared. In such an unexpected nice weather in October, it wasn’t surprising that there…

    When I first saw the summer promotion of the local trains, with which all people having a monthly ticket can travel anywhere in Germany, I directly thought of offering a weekend trip nearby. There was hardly anything I could find,…
