With pasta in the tub

Yes, you have read correctly, sometimes you have to weird things. So, does that mean I am keen on carbohydrates for external use? True, I already had some special photo shootings, e.g. as a man, on a turntable, with a chameleon, in a gravel pit, etc. Always striving for something…

Come on – watch out for mushrooms

Like many other forest areas, the Palatinate Forest is an El Dorado for mushroom pickers – actually. Because, at the moment collectors find considerably less mushrooms than usual.

How do the bees do it?

Visit Antwerp in 24 hours

In addition to Paris, London and Milan, Antwerp (in French Anvers) is the uncrowned queen of fashion; not to forget diamonds and culinary delights – especially chocolate and beer. The diversity of Belgium’s second largest city (523,000 inhabitants) may be passion at the second glance, but without any question a…

Sleeping among wolves (dormir avec les loups)

Hardly any animal is currently as controversial as the wolf and you often learn that some more wolves have settled down in Germany.
