Just one image: In The Summertime

The British rock band Mungo Jerry celebrates the carefree summer days in 1970. The song was no. 1 in nineteen countries. Just short before 40°C here in Good ol’ Germany in the forecast for Wednesday.

Frankfurt in January

The Beauty and the Beast III

It was some time ago, when I was looking for something wide, something quite wide, something quite large and something … quite old.

El norte de España

In spring 2016 I travelled to Northern Spain, visiting the Basque Country, Cantabria, Aragon and Castile and Leon. Flying to Bilbao and heading to our first location in San Sebastian, we made a stopover in Zumaia. The little town is nice … but more famous is its rock formation – The Flysch. The landscape is…… Continue reading El norte de España
