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. I can understand the concerns of citizens and shepherds who have a so-called “problem wolf” in the area, https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf but the character and the eyes of this…

Emotions – the power of pictures

Moods are often difficult to describe in words, and to always talk about each and everything is not always helpful/ meaningful. No matter if happy, malicious, puzzled, thoughtful, sad, anxious, angry, romantic or smugly … it is just the image or body language that leaves room for individual feelings and…

Horse summer a la Robina Hood

I am not a great equestrian, but horse riding in the wind along the Sea is just wonderful. And also healthy for the animals, as they can comfortably cool their shackles in the spum of the shallow water. Of course you should always wear a helmet and riding boots for…

My favorite summer drinks

I usually follow the customs of “hot countries”, e.g. Arabia; there the inhabitants drink preferably lukewarm. Alcohol doesn’t play a major role, because it…

Cave diving instead of sweating

A breezy summer is appreciated, humid summer heat of up to 38 degrees is not really fun. But how to cool off? “If the donkey gets too cocky, he goes onto the ice” or … climbs down into a cave. Here is a “cooling presciption” about my cave tour into…

Summerlove in light-blue and rose-pink

Time and again the blue sky has already been occurred in various songs. Just think of the Italian evergreen “Azzuro”.  The great Blue is also found in nature and botanic; in its most beautiful form the so-called “Blue Rain”/ clycine/ wisteria.  https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blauregen Apart from that, pastel colors are very much…
