The next stage leads you through an adjacent coastal forest with the appearance of a fairytale. The 3 miles mainly go straight on forest soil and a strip of grass (Caution: Midges!). On the way […]

It’s not spooky in the ghost forest!

With the weather getting better, lots of people go to the beaches in Warnemünde to make the most out of the warm days at the sea. But if you’re not a big fan of overcrowded places (like me) and really just want to do some relaxing sun bathing without laying towel to towel, Nienhagen is a […]

It gets me going in the morning, recharges my batteries throughout the day, and sometimes even helps me to go to bed in the night. Needless to say, that I consume copious amounts of the dark brew.

A Stroll through Rostock’s enchanted City Centre

When I first came to this town, I was amazed by all the beautiful and colourful hanseatic buildings in and around the downtown area.

Chapter 1 – Introduction To me, it seems that writing a blog, just like writing in general, requires a certain set of skills of the text’s composer.
