Back in April we travelled the Niederrhein, the region I grew up in, which means forests, lakes and a lot of meadows. It was a beautiful trip to the Krickenbecker Seen, with nice scenery and a lot of sun. It wasn't particularly warm, but in April you never know right?

Fusion Festival this year was great fun. We have never been such a big group there, which worried me in advance, because when you bring together many of your friends, you never know how they get along. It was great! Everyone clicked and we had the most amazing week together. The weather was awesome. Warm enough to have a dip in the lake, cool enough to dance all day and night. We saw some pretty great concerts, including the Mexican band Pantheon Roccoco, which partied so hard, I could hardly keep up. Check them out, they are great fun!

About a week after Fusion festival some of the Fusionists reunited at the annual Mosel Couchsurfer Meeting. What a blast! And again, the weather was fabulous. We swam in the Mosel and Lisek had never swam as much as there before, as everybody threw his ball into the water again and again. Even the formerly terrified children of our friends started to love the little sausage dog after a while. I love Lisek for being so calm and getting everyone to like him eventually.

At the end of August, Mr. Schön's brother invited us for brunch at his place in Bremen, so we took a long time to go to Bremen and had some stops along the way. We stayed near a lake which we ran around in the morning and then decided to go to Papenburg, which has the most southern seaport - in Germany I think. Although it is still pretty far from the sea it certainly has a very maritime feeling about it. There is a lot of canals in the streets with pretty bridges (apparently they call it the Venice of Germany) and a very well-known chantier, whose "products" we saw all over town. Papenburg is really pretty, typical of the North of Germany are all the red brick houses, which I find totally charming.
The first weekend of August we have been to a country- wedding of two Berliners getting married in Brandenburg. The two days party took place in and around an old farmhouse, which was beautiful. The weather - again- was perfect and we had a lot of fun.

I am looking forward to September when I will be off to Edinburgh with my mum and off to Ibiza with Mr Schön for a few days. At the moment the weather is so summery that I don't even go out during the day as over 35° is definitely too hot for me.
I promised a lot of dog pictures:
