Rain rain rain

I have not been so active lately, because I was sick... After many beautiful days and nights in May, with lots of sunlight and blue skies, some rainy days came. I know it might sound strange, but I was very happy about the rain. After all water brings life and fertility to the land and…

Bright nights

Another evening by the lake, while I am still mesmerized by how long the sun is up and how bright the nights have become. At the moment the sun is up from 3:09h-22:30h and the nights are not getting dark anymore and haven't been dark for several weeks now. Tom teaches me how to fish…

Ice fishing

On saturday I went ice-fishing with a friend. We started in Bispgarden and drove to a nearby lake, where we drilled some holes into the ice... It was quite thick and we were lucky, that the drill was just a bit longer than the ice was thick! This was the lake The surroundings were amazingly…
