Christmas reception of the Bavarian parliament. Every year a wonderful event with a lot of politicians, dignitaries and journalists.
Saving lifes in the mountains. In Bavaria there is a regionwide civil service of air rescue. And it's for free.
My favorite video game: You may call me old fashioned, but I love playing golf on my Nintendo Wii from 2006. It’s a sports game with low resolution, poor graphics and a very limited storyline. But it’s so much fun. And the console still works perfectly. Over the years my wife and I have become experts. My record is 17 under par. It’s the only video game I play, besides Sudoku and Tetris.
What’s your favorite Christmas movie? What would you recommend to watch?
Through the clouds to the sun ☀️. November can be dull and depressing. But Mable and I decided to act and started a hike.
This a traditional Bavarian men‘s dress. It‘s called „Tracht“. It mainly consists of a short trouser „Lederhose“ made of deer leather and a „Janker“ which is a loden jacket. And yes, the guy in the photo is me 😁
randomlives23 The first thing I did after we returned from the fitness center this evening. 😁😋
Late autumn in the Alps. The Northern faces of the mountains don’t see the sun for months. It’s freezing cold in the shade. But as long as there is so little snow I will keep on climbing.
Today we escaped the thick, cold and humid fog in the valley. We climbed Mount Hohe Kisten (1922 m) at the very Northern edge of the Alps.
This is what one gets to see when the climbing partner is a sleepyhead. We started too late. So in the evening we witnessed the last rays of the sun lit up the clouds above the Karwendel summits. 30 minutes later we had to switch on our headlamps to find the way back to my car.
Mable’s first driving lesson. Beware! She’s a speeder!
I was in the mood for an arctic adventure. And what's the best way to do so in Central Europe? Climbing up to 2340 meters.
I know, it looks like a kitschy postcard, but that’s how it really is. These two ladies are grazing at the foot of Mount Guffert (2195 m) in Austria.

God bless the king! Ludwig II. was a genius, maybe he was crazy, but Bavaria owes him so much.
At least “Sola digest” isn’t censored 😆👍 (a screenshot from an email I received today)
Sometimes I almost lose my faith in mankind …
I’ve been a Sci-Fi fan since the days of my youth. My start was Perry Rhodan, a extremely successful series by a German publisher. I devoured the weekly episodes and started drawing what I had read about.
„Solid as a rock.“
What is it like to live in a country that doesn't exist? The about 400,000 people in Transnistria do so and they do quite well.
I’m looking forward to reading it!
Just a short autumnal walk.
Welcome newbies! Let me share the secrets of Sola with you …
This is by far the cutest baby that I have ever seen! 😍
Let me tell you about an awesome mountaineering tour that I made yesterday.
For another card.
Yesterday my wife and I did some garden work together. I thought I was diligent and hard working. Little did I know…
I’ve been thinking about methods to teach newbies how Sola works.
Игорь Северянин называл ее неизменной спутницей своей жизни. Стихи, посвященные ей, полны нежности: "Эта палочка, тоненькая, как тростинка, Невесомая, гибкая, точно мечта, Точно девушка, — уж непременно блондинка — Восхитительные мне открыла места". Кроме того, в этих местах она давала поэту пропитание. А какое именно пропитание?
