Fortunately, this strange Corona year didn’t treat us so badly so far. To celebrate my parents‘ 50th wedding anniversary, my sister and me took them on a trip to their most beloved holiday location at the North sea coast in Denmark. One week of quality time together, well spent with cooking, baking, windy picnicking at the beach, playing cards and boccia, reading in the hammock, walking, swimming, bike riding, road trips, eating ice cream and smoked fish.
Weekend getaway to paradise – somewhere between Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Brandenburg. Eastern charm meets incredible serene nature. Weird encounter with a dead „Berlin lobster“. Aka „nordamerikanischer Sumpfkrebs“ how I learned afterwards. It’s an invasive species that causes severe problems to the local ecosystem. And is now served as a delicacy in gourmet restaurants.
Ever been to Döberitzer Heide? One of my new favourite places around Berlin. Located just a short local train ride from Berlin, you’ll find this vast nature reserve on a former military training area. With some luck, you’ll see some semi-wild horses, wisents (the European bisons, close to extinction just some decades ago) or red deer roaming in the protected no-access core zone of the park.
Have to come back, again and again. Just love the waves. Or THE wave.
