Today we are driving towards East. In Göttingen we leave the Autobahn and head towards the Harz. On our way we see a man taking a walk in the bright morning sun near Krebeck where he lives. When we approach him in the middle of the green fields, he is wondering at first if he was supposed to have an appointment with us. We have a very fulfilling talk with him. read more

Today is a driving day. Towards Frankfurt we pass through Aschaffenburg where we spot a cute grandma in a café – unfortunately she’s on a granny date with some pals and doesn’t have time to chat.
