Today I took a ferry from Lübeck-Travemünde to the Priwall peninsula where I walked at the natural beach. So wonderful to be back to the sea after two years!

However, this might well be my last trip for the coming months. Corona cases in Germany are rising dramatically. A new virus variant, supposed to be even more contagious, has been discovered in South Africa. A further German lock-down is being discussed …

Always looking forward to your feedback.

Holstentor at Night

The Holsten Gate (Holstentor) is a city gate marking off the western boundary of the old center of the Hanseatic city of Lübeck. Built in 1464, the Brick Gothic construction is one of the relics of Lübeck’s medieval city fortifications and one of two remaining city gates. Known for its two-round towers and arched entrance, it is regarded today as a symbol of the city. Together with the old town centre of Lübeck it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.

Glyptothek Munich, Museum of Greek and Roman Sculptures

The photo was taken when I could finally return to my favorite coffee location, the museum café at the Glyptothek. The inner courtyard is beautiful and features a very relaxing atmosphere, so rare in the hectic Munich city center! But I also love the unique ambiance of the inside restaurant where you sit in the vicinity of the ancient statues. In the café they serve perhaps the best Italian coffee in town and a very tasty selection of cakes (and other snacks and beverages).

And of course the collection is really worth visiting. For further information please look here.

Those were the happy times in summer and early autumn …

Due to extremely high corona numbers, the 2G rule (access only for vaccinated and recovered persons) applies to the Bavarian gastronomy. In the face of the dramatic utilization of intensive care units, the Bavarian government has today i.e. decided that in corona hotspots with an incidence of over 1000 (in Munich currently: 754) restaurants and hotels will be closed again at least until December 15. If you are interested in all current Bavarian Anti Covid measures please look here.

In a way the whole situation seems to me like a terrible nightmare from which one does not wake up. And there are still those who refuse to be vaccinated …

This year in October I finished the Swiss Camino at Fribourg. Next spring I will continue my pilgrimage on the Camino, if possible. In Fribourg I spent another day, before I went home. Strolling through the Old Town I saw some magnificient doors.
