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…

Walking To Pass Time Until Fast Break – Photography Of Castle & Field

Walking To Pass Time Until Fast Break – Photography Of Castle & Field

Yesterday we went for a little walk to pass some time, since we still had about two hours until we could break our fast. The fast this year is especially long here in Germany; we start fasting at around 3:30 AM until 9:30 PM.  So since my husband came home a bit earlier from work yesterday, we decided to take a stroll through the city. This would also benefit our 14 year old son, who had surgery last Friday for…

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…

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…
