    Solo camping with dog

    Since I’ve been traveling with Mowgli – and that’s been quite a few years now – I’ve accumulated a number of experiences that I’d like to share with you. The unique situation on our trips is usually that I am solely responsible for my dog, which creates issues at some points that require a creative solution. On the journey When camping…

    Dog traveling – now I’m talking!

    This time Mowgli has the floor: Dear dog community, I ask so in the round: Is your human also so strange? A new car bed “We’re going on a trip,” my boss said.

    November blues

    The – somewhat cheerless – summer has passed, the harvest has come in so far and we have already arrived in November of this strange and memorable year.

    Rügen – light and shadow

    As autumn sets in, the days grow shorter and cooler, and life soon moves all the way inside again, it’s time to reminisce about the joys of summer, even if they weren’t quite as joyful this year, but they are definitely proven to be meaningful.
