blutenburg castle

what about meeting friends at district party (dorffest) and a beneficiary run for africa in/around the blutenburg castle in western munich? a great idea, if you asked me ...
runners for africa
 the main reason for us to go there was to ask for birthday party reservation
 there is a church (organ concerts), restaurant, library and a lot of arts exhibitions in blutenburg too ~ black & white pictures about island
good-bye blutenburg

giesing - faith cure in unknown part of munich

what an interesting faith cure mass and what a nice singing in giesing today. well, the monks and nuns from the temple order (templerorden) sung sooo nice and prayed for the needy folks out of the small audience (15 people?) in their beautiful monastery in the riverside part of munich - giesing. i was so surprised about the location, about the event, about the peaceful mood all over the place ... and there was coffee & cake after the mass too, like in an another world ... well, the 13 monks and 13 nuns of the temple order are probably really different from every day people and their website is also different than i would expect. the most important issue at their website? to save the nature (god's creation) ... so clever, so nice :-)

birkenleiten 35 is the address of this beautiful monastery at the auer mühlbach creek built in 1880 originally as a villa by the jeweler karl winterhalter and bought by the order in 1968.
1880, the unknown part of giesing ... what about TSV 1860? that's soccer, of course :-)

good-bye, temple order, see ya in october again :-)

martin - kosice - bratislava, SK

a short trip to slovakia ~ 2016 km in 5 days. my plan for next year? 2017 km :-)

the main reason for my visit? easy:
mother & son :-)
the city of martin:
the view at krivan, the famous hill in mala fatra massif
lake liptovska mara:
the high tatras is in the clouds, what a pity
kosice / kassa / kassau / cassovia:
 the last one is ours :-)
 kosice, coat of arms
recycling in slovakia: beer, wine, spirits :-)
motorest halier / lake tomasovce (near lucenec)
this small fish pond was shallow and thus really warm ... next time i will probably try the a little bit bigger nearby water reservoir divin
bratislava castle ~ bratislavsky hrad
