Great list, Andrea!
mmh, you would rather want to be in the USA’s Southwest desert now? Considering that we have typical temperatures around 20-13 degree celsius here, I really understand what you mean.This is about the best time in the year to live here. BTW, we had the last rain in October. But I really do not look forward to the summer….
oh, I didn’t mean at this time of the year specifically, I actually had your usual 30 to 50 degrees (Celsius, of course!) summers in mind. You do have a point, though – it’s between -1 and -10 degrees here at the moment, and we’ve got about 10 cm of snow right now. But at least it’s sunny!
This weather is calling for a hike in the Eifel. It is very beautiful there in the winter. I remember doing curling on the Schalkenmeerener Maar.
Daniel, you’re right. I fondly remember the first time André and I hiked around Laacher See. It was in December or January a couple of years ago, very cold and quiet, and much less crowded there than in the summer. We should try to get out somewhere this weekend, while the snow lasts!
