Photography Sunset Chasing – Find New Locations And Visit Old Locations

Photography Sunset Chasing – Find New Locations And Visit Old Locations

A while ago we took a small trip to the Wachenburg (castle) in Weinheim, Germany. We drove for a while, since this castle is situated a bit higher up on a mountain. The weather was rainy and a bit gloomy, and it was getting dark already. The drive up the mountain felt extremely long, and when we finally arrived I saw it was very foggy. I had brought my camera, and though the fog was giving the castle a cool,…

Take Continuously Small Trips – Taking Advantage Of The Weekends

Take Continuously Small Trips – Taking Advantage Of The Weekends

Last Thursday marked the start of the last ten days of Ramadan, and during those days my husband usually stays in the mosque. I knew in advance that we would not be taking any exploring trips for two weeks, since the weekend during the last ten days of Ramadan my husband would be in the mosque, and the weekend after would maybe be Eid (Religious holiday marking the end of (fasting) the month of Ramadan). On Eid we usually do…

Heading For One Destination But End Up Somewhere Else – Weekend Trip

Heading For One Destination But End Up Somewhere Else – Weekend Trip

Our last weekend trip was the weekend right before the month of Ramadan. I would not dare try to take a trip where some hiking would be involved, especially with all that heat that we were having these past days. So I wanted to get out of the house, I really didn’t care where we were going; however, most attractions cost money and castles don’t, unless you take the tour. I am happy to just see the outside, so I…

Sunday Trip When All Businesses and Stores Are Closed – Odenwald And Breuberg Castle

Sunday Trip When All Businesses and Stores Are Closed – Odenwald And Breuberg Castle

My husband went to a retreat a couple of weeks ago at the Odenwald (Germany), and was very fascinated with the surrounding area of the city. He had told me that it was a smaller city, peaceful with many hiking opportunities. He also mentioned a castle. I took note of it, but somehow didn’t pursue the thought of going to see this castle. I don’t think I even looked at it online, until last Sunday. It was actually not me…

Historic City Ladenburg Germany – Bike Ride Adventuring Or Traveling The World

Historic City Ladenburg Germany – Bike Ride Adventuring Or Traveling The World

I had the overwhelming urge last Sunday to go on a bike ride. The weather had been kind of chilly and rainy throughout the week, but on Sunday it got quite warm, and even sunny. My husband was all for it, but my two sons were complaining and dragging their feet, especially when they heard we were riding to a small town thirty minutes away. This reaction is normal, really I don’t even respond to it because I know the addiction to…

Lay Off Your Usual Routine – Get Out And Adventure

Lay Off Your Usual Routine – Get Out And Adventure

Humans, they build a routine and most of the times have a hard time getting out of their daily chores. Every day and weekend they find themselves doing the same thing over and over again. Yes we all fall into that trap! The trap of Netflix, 500+ cable channels, and dvd move night. It takes only the first step to say, No! This weekend I will do something else. I will choose a place, even if it’s just twenty minutes away,…

One Day Camping Trip to the Alps – Don’t Forget Your Tent!

One Day Camping Trip to the Alps – Don’t Forget Your Tent!

Two weeks ago or so my husband took out a tent he had found somewhere, and he and our son started cleaning it. My son was super excited to use it at a sleepover, even though this was an indoor sleepover. Seeing his excitement about camping, even if it was indoors, I suggested that we would go camping for real, you know outdoors. The boys had spring break coming up anyways, so my husband took leave for the same time…

Early Morning Adventure – Good for the Soul

Early Morning Adventure – Good for the Soul

So last weekend my husband and I took advantage of the great weather, and went sightseeing to the old town of Heidelberg. We went super early as to avoid all the tourist groups. While walking through the city, we found a path leading to the Heidelberg Castle. We hiked up the small mountain, through a path completely new to me, and found ourselves face to face with the beautiful ruin. By that time it was already close to 10 AM, and…

Views to See, Boulders to Climb, A Workout is Inevitable!

Views to See, Boulders to Climb, A Workout is Inevitable!

Weekend trips are great to see and experience new places, but also to take beautiful pictures. A photographers mind can’t help but think of the camera when planning a new trip. For this trip we went to a small city near Darmstadt, Germany. Apparently they have something called the Boulders Beach (Felsenmeer), and I wanted to see it. I didn’t know what to expect, but I figured we would be hiking. I was very surprised when we arrived. In front of…
