Hello world!

They say I’m a test post. So hello everyone 😀


Knights, Horses and Fire

One of the things I found out pretty soon after we moved to Dieburg is, that we do, in fact, have a stunt riding team in town! How cool is that?  They also arrange a Knight’s Spectaculum every year with a tiny but cozy medieval market, a Knight’s tournament and a fire show with horses…


Hello 2017 and goodbye 2016

Happy new year everyone! What a bumpy ride the last year has been which, at some point, applies to every year [kinda repeating myself here]~! One of my big highlights was our trip to Scotland. It was our first vacation together for Hannes and me and we had a great time in Edinburgh. Such a beautiful…


The wild hunt is out and about

[trying to break the blog-silence with a tiny life sign] I really like winter because it is a cozy time at home with candles, blankets and warm drinks, the cats like to snuggle a lot more and I also enjoy the icy cold morning walks. I wish we would have had more snow the last…


Autumn is here!

With the autumn equinox today autumn has arrived! It might sound silly but you can smell it in the air now. I also really love the cold mornings and am happy to be able to wear layers again and the cats are more cuddly than in summer ^^; I tidied up my garden a little…


Of knights and sunny days

The medieval market in Dreieichenhain ist one of the prettiest markets in our region: Magical location, beautiful ambient lots of vendors and stuff to buy, tasty food, knights tourney, shows and music and so much more! Thanks to the hot and sunny late summer weather the market was well visited and we had to wait…


Bagpipes are weapons of war!!!

Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,  Great chieftain o the puddin’-race! Finally I found my way to beautiful Scotland even if we lingered in Edinburgh only, with a little trip to the Highlands… ↟ Day 1 – Saturday â†Ÿ We took an early flight to Edinburgh from Frankfurt am Main airport. Security got much more annoying since…


Umm… hello!?

It’s nearly May 2016 already!? When the hell did that happen??? One of the things on my list for this year was “more blogging” but as it’s already May now it seems it didn’t start that well… although I got a few unfinished posts here. Oh yeah!But despite all the stress and chaos I also…


Autumn is time for handicrafts – Naalbinding

Last year I finally learned how to do Naalbinding/Needlebinding – an old scandinavian handicraft. I wanted to learn this for a few years now since I’m really interested in the viking age and everything related to it. My friend Lena had this lovely needle made for me at one of the markets we visited last…


Solstice weekend feasting

My hun turned 30 this weekend and together with the summer solstice we spend two lovely days with friends and family and lot’s of food! I would have loved to have a fire outside for the solstice but we we’re so exhausted and it was raining~ so I decided to light some candles instead and…
