Harbor Area In Lübeck


Fun fact, I have 5200 images that I didn’t upload yet, because taking photos is much easier than preparing or uploading them. At times I should upload older ones. Above you can see a photo I shot in Lübeck near the harbor area. You can see the Trave River in the photo.

The photo was shot in the morning, during … Continue reading Harbor Area In Lübeck

But my mother was still afraid, so that only her husband and … Continue reading The Canoe Ready For A Tour

The husband of my mother knows someone who owns a canoe and he got the offer to borrow that canoe for three weeks. We usually used a rubber raft when we wanted to have some fun on a river but it´s quite difficult to paddle with a rubber raft if you want to get ahead on the river. I think a rubber raft is only good if you have an outboard motor but then you can´t use it on all rivers due to the fact that most rivers are parts of a nature reserve and it is not allowed there, … Continue reading The Borrowed Canoe
