A wonderful place for the night

At a lonely house on a hill we ask for permission to pitch our tent, somewhere in Namibia, 2010

It's great to walk with the last light ...

That's the forest, March 2012
... and then to return through the dark forest.

But that's not the hole story: When we came to the end of the forest, a big dog approched us barking very scary, the woman behind stopped it, close to us.
The rules say that dogs have to be on the leash there!

Nature reserve

The River Lippe, Lünen, Germany, March 2012
At our weekend hike, five kilometers from home. Looks lovely, but is not fare away from an industrial area. It is a protected area.

City of Three Rivers

The River Inn meets the River Danube, the historical center Altstadt from Passau, Germany, 2008
Passau (previously Latin: Batavis or Batavia) is a town in Lower Bavaria, Germany. It is also known as the Dreiflüssestadt or "City of Three Rivers," because the Danube is joined at Passau by the Inn from the south and the Ilz from the north.
In an impressiv areal view you may watch the different colors from the rivers.
Passau was an ancient Roman colony and is worth a visit.

In the hinterland

 Yellowstone National Park, USA, August 2009

we did need a lot of stuff for 12 days hiking in the wilderness with two kids
My ABC Wednesday for H is hiking in the backcountry (which I would translate into German as Hinterland). That was so beautiful, so exhausting, so far away from everything, deep in the nature, just an awesome adventure. And we loved it.
More from my hiking stories.

It's weekend. Glad it is. I need some free time.

And I love to read books. But my time to read is in the week, when I go by train to work. Here are some  from the last weeks, realy good ones. And one ("Nothing") I finished last year, but you should know. I read manly in German. The best ones I try to read in the original English.
