Katja GERMANY, SHORT ROAD TRIPS Leave a Comment

These amazing 40 meters high rock formations, halfway between Dortmund and Hanover, close to the smaller cities Bielefeld and Paderborn, are really worth visiting if you are driving in the area. The sight is quite well known amongst the Germans, but it seems like the international tourists have not yet really discovered it. We stopped here on our way back …

This year´s 1st of May came conveniently on a Monday, which meant we had a longer weekend without taking a day off work.

Katja GERMANY, SHORT ROAD TRIPS Leave a Comment

Moving to Germany gave me the opportunity to use some of the weekends (especially those few longer ones) for short trips to different parts of the country where I have never been before. Especially the NORTHERN COASTAL PART is so different to anything I knew before and that´s why I always love to go there. Last year in the early …
