VSCO Roundup #61 – March 2021

A beautiful hike through an area where the bark beetle has been doing its thing, blossoming trees and a foretaste of summer (temperature-wise), and a visit to Villa Hügel, a mansion once inhabited by industrialist family Krupp.

VSCO Roundup #60 – February 2021

All of a sudden it was winter. It was quite cold, there was a lot of snow, and I was very happy.

VSCO Roundup #59 – January 2021

I was quite surprised by how many photos there are from January. I remember that month being very gray and rainy and annoying and depressing – but obviously I went out more than I thought. We had one day of winter with a lot of snow, which melted pretty soon, though. And then there was a trip to the Tetraeder in Bottrop on a beautiful day.

VSCO Roundup #58 – December 2020

There aren’t many photos from December. Guess I was busy eating Christmas cookies and wrapping gifts.

VSCO Roundup #57 – November 2020

Lots of walks in November: in the park during lunch breaks, to town getting coffee, around the lake on the beautiful Kettwiger Panoramasteig, …

VSCO Roundup #56 – October 2020

October is my favourite month and this one was especially great. We were able to spend a few days on an island in the North Sea. It was the first time being by the sea this year and that little escape from our everyday lives with Corona felt soooo good. So there were lots of walks on the endless beach – but also some through the beautifully colored Ruhr area back home.

VSCO Roundup #55 – September 2020

I don’t know what happened in September … I hardly took  any photos. But at least there’s another Corona ghost.

VSCO Roundup #54 – August 2020

I went to the outdoor pool a lot and was surprised how the Corona rules made swimming way more relaxed than before.

VSCO Roundup #53 – July 2020

In July we had originally planned to go on a trip to Berlin to see Björk in concert. Shortafter we wanted to spend ten days in Scotland. Of course the concert was cancelled and going to Scotland was impossible, too. But we still went to Berlin and enjoyed a few days in a city that felt almost empty. And instead of hiking through the Highlands we started walking the Hermannsweg, a long distance trail through the Teutoburger Wald. We didn’t finish the whole trail yet and I’m really looking forward to the rest of it.

So there’s a ton of photos from July, including two mirror selfies – one from the toilet of a pub/beer garden in the port of Dortmund, one from a museum for modern art in Berlin. Have fun finding out which is from where!

VSCO Roundup #52 – June 2020

First times since the beginning of Corona:
– eating in a restaurant (outdoors, because I wouldn’t dare sitting inside)
– going to a store that is not a supermarket (to buy sports pants – then realising pants are obviously not worn anymore)

First time ever:
– picking up my finisher shirt (in a stadium) from a series of running events in winter/spring, which was cancelled right before the last run
