Travel Tuesday: traffic lights

Repairing roads is necessary in every country. Sometimes part of the road have to be closed to repair or work on the other side. Here, in Germany, they would have installed 2 temporary traffic lights to solve the problem. It’s amazing to see, who different some solutions for common problems are: taxi van + STOP/GO-sign in a workers hand. Btw. years ago, they would have ordered 2 workers with a flag to manage the problem here. But nowadays not without the temporary traffic lights.

Take care!

Travel Tuesday: on guard

Do you remember that I proposed a surprise 3 weeks ago? Here we are. Right inside the castle of Fairy Glen, having the watchtower now to the right and looking in direction of the ‘gate’, where hoards of stones are laying around. The whole ensemble reminded me of an army of trolls, surprised by sunrise, and thus turned to stone.

What did they want inside the forecourt of the ‘castle’? Was the stone-helix their goal? Who knows.

By the way, friends of mine were in the same place two years later. See, how the place changed 😲!  As they are using their blog as a diary and covering a whole day in one pose, you have to scroll down a bit. Someone removed all the stones. One can only find the traces of the spiral.

Take care!

Travel Tuesday: inside Fairy Glen




Fairy glen has more than one funny-shaped hill. This looks like a defense wall and a moat for protecting a medieval castle. The tradition says it’s built by the little folk also known as elves living in this glen (valley). On the other hand, geologists say, it’s created by glaciers. Decide your own, which explanation you take. Either way, enjoy the beauty of the valley and respect nature.

Leave nothing but footprints (without harming plants) and take nothing but photos and memories!

Take care!

Travel Tuesday: welcome to the Fairy Glen


This is Castle Ewen. Not a real castle or ruins of a former man-made building. Instead, it’s a rock. But, shaped like a tower of a castle.

Travel Tuesday: even sheep build roads

You can see horizontal lines at the side of the central hill in the image. These are sheep roads. Sheep like it easy and they find the easiest way to climb a hill. Over time, these small roads appear, where sheep regularly roam.

When hiking in an area where sheep roam freely, like in Iceland or Scotland, and you want to go up- or downhill, look out for these sheep roads and follow them. Sheep have found the easiest way to walk uphill or downhill because they are kind of lazy. So, they try to avoid unnecessary efforts. In this image, all the roads are in horizontal directions, but you can also find them leading up and down.
