Hallo lieber Gast

willkommen in den klaren Weiten im Norden Deutschlands, begleite mich auf meinen Pfaden durch die Natur, Ausflügen und Reisen, auf der Suche nach Ruhe und Anregung. Entdecke mit mir Linien und Freiräumen, die die Perspektiven, die Vielfalt der Farben und Formen dieser Welt und unserer Natur uns bieten und genieße Momente der Nachdenklichkeit, Poesie und philosophischen Worte großer Dichter und Denker, manchmal auch meine eigenen lyrischen Texte dazu.

Schön, dass Du Dir die Zeit genommen hast - wunderbar, Dich hier zur wissen!

" Ich muss mich ganz im Stillen mit meiner Außenwelt reiben,. sonst werde ich untauglich für die Welt."

Alsace - an old love!

Traveling through France at this marvelous region close to the German border is a feast for all senses.

Charming little old towns, amiable people, cozy hotels, delicious restaurants, famous vineyards and all this is very peaceful and not overrun.

In the north, very close to Hagenau started the Pottery Route, with picturesque pottery villages.

September is a gorgeous time for this route. Overwhelming flower balconies all around and at every corner an unbelievable good restaurant.

Look out for dishes such as flammkuchen, the Alsace take on pizza, a wafer-thin flatbread smothered with creamy fromage blanc and bacon, and baeckeoffe, a slow-baked casserole of lamb, beef and pork or ...

... my favorite dish is the yummy meat pasties, served with salad and fresh french white bread. O la, la!!

The choice is not the problem when it comes to tasting wine, though be prepared for lengthy sessions, as each vigneron will open up a dozen whites – sylvaner, riesling, gewürztraminer, pinot blanc – the region’s distinctive red, a light pinot noir, and bubbly crémant d’Alsace.

I hope you enjoy this September journey. Next week I'll show you the 2nd. part of it.

A bientôt!
