I’m back ….

610_5609_w… from East Frisia at the German North Sea. Frisia is the region, where the ancient frisian people settled. Nowadays it’s devided in North-Frisia in Germany (state of Schleswig-Holstein) and Denmark, East-Frisia in the German state of Lower Saxony and West-Frisia in the Netherlands. Big areas on the main lands are part of Frisia as well as several islands, located in front of the coast in the tidelands called Wadden Sea. During tide vast areas fall dry in the tidelands. You can even walk to some islands in these times.

I was up there for an extended weekend. Last Monday we have had a public holiday here: Pentecost Monday – Whit Monday. Because of the wonderful warm weather the week before, many people started on Friday around noon to a short vacation. Many states here have had a school holiday on Tuesday. So, this is the perfect weekend for a short vacation. Unfortunately, many, many people got that same idea – so the motorways were very crowded on Friday afternoon. Instead of 3 1/4 hours, we needed 2 1/2 hours more for the way. But, it was worth the effort. Although, the temperatures dropped significantly, we have had a wonderful time ’til our return on Wednesday.

As usual for an “I’m back …” post I attached several photos. The gallery below has also some images, I already posted on Instagram (consider following me at Instagram: @tuxur)

Take care!
