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

I am happy to just see the outside, so I…

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…
