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…

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…

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…

Tips to possibly turn your hobby into a business without going into debt

Tips to possibly turn your hobby into a business without going into debt

Many times we start a hobby and figure out very quickly that this is something we would like to do professionally. We feel happy, relaxed, and very motivated. Nevertheless, whatever the new interest might be, doing it as a hobby would be more cost effective than having one’s own business in that field. Material and equipment can all add up and make the step of becoming your own boss a lot harder. For someone just starting out buying all those…

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…
