ABC Wednesday - C

Bordercrossing by bike - we came from Hungary - and we don't had to wait in the long cue  queue

Kopački Rit (Kopački Tršćak, Hungarian: Kopácsi rét), is a nature park in eastern Croatia.

following the Donauradweg (Danube Bike Trail)

A beautiful and quite place for our tent

The damage is from the Croatian War of Independance

The damaged Vukovar water tower

 My ABC Wednesday is for Cycling in Croatia. And this is my contribution for signs, signs.

A previous post with Signs after the war of Independance.

In 2008 we traveled along the Danube River from Passau in Germany to Constanța in Romania. Around 2400 kilometers. The first 700 to Budapest by feet, from there by bike to the Black Sea in Romania. What a trip to explore nature and people in the east of Europe.

ABC Wednesday - B

Bahia de Salinas, Costa Rica, November 2009

Thomas, two years old, [how time flys - he turned 5 this month].

Andreas and Thomas, the brothers love each other and still find games which are fun for both (Andreas is 11 years older) .

And that's me. One rare pic with me wearing a dress. Andreas is brushing his teeth.
This is my ABC Wednesday for thr letter B. A boat on the beach and my boys. And a Bahia.
Some very special moments from my travel I like to I remember very often. This is one great morning. After a stressfull day filled with crossing the border from Nicaragua to Costa Rica. Here it was so unexpacted peacefull, lovely and relaxing. Just a happy morning on the beach.
More pics from this morning at the beach, after spending the night there in our tent.

This is summer

Camomile on the way to the field

Redcurrant, yummy from our garden, perfect with vanilla ice cream

The forest starts near that field - >

And after some rainy weeks the sun and the warm temperatures are back.

In downtown

Just a little green and sunshine

I still wonder about the different light - the different shot

Rent a bike


at Dortmund Hauptbahnhof (Main station), June 2012
I remember some posts from Brisbane (or Sydney?) with a bike sharing system. Do you have anything like this at your town? But I must admit, I have not used it yet. From the station I walk to my destination. Maybe one day, just for pleasure.

A is for Austria

Abbey Melk, Austria 2008

Braunvieh (German: Brown cattle), typical for Austria
 This is for the new round of ABC Wednesday. I don't know if I'll stick to geographical words. This is the beginning.
I spend my childhood holidays in our neighboring country.

Time never waits

Morning in Namibia, March 2010
The quote is from Jack Johnson. And I have too much other things to do in the moment, so blogging time is very limited. Can't remember a week like this.
