Remscheid, Muengsten Bridge, Germany - 19th October 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
the weather has gone crazy - we are having sunshine and about 20°C. This was a good reason to make an excursioin to one of the touristic highlights of this reason. Because my host does not have a car, we took a long walk through lovely rural areas and forests to get there. Katja's son accompanied us.

We walked to a distrcit in the West of Remscheid and reached this lovely point soon.

We went into the forest than. Oh, what a lovely view, all those golden leafes!

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8050/8103347110_6650b112e7_o.jpg

We rested on a bench for a moment.

This is an extremely large beech - Katja loves this tree.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8190/8103333593_607e7819b1_o.jpg

This tree is showing several route markings. The encircled "R" means Roentgenweg. It is following the border of the municipal area of Remscheid, about 62 km long. It is named after the founder of the X-rays who was born in Lennep, one of the historic districts of Remscheid.

We simply had to follow our path downhill to the bottom of the valley.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8469/8103333803_39c9124b67_o.jpg

River Wupper is flowing in the valley.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8045/8103347524_2e5940416c_o.jpg

I saw a cute little outlook pavilion at the opposite side of the valley. Katja told me that you had a spectacular view to our destination from there. We were visiting Muengsten Bridge, Germany's highest railway bridge. It is connecting Remscheid and the neighbour city Solingen, overspanning the valley of the river Wupper.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8474/8103333999_8199449a1a_o.jpg

Here it came into sight.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8324/8103347738_5b4c493031_o.jpg

The bridge was built of steel in late 19th century, it is 465 m long and 107 m high. You can find more information here in English.

The bridge is so wide that it is nearly impossible to take a proper photo of the whole bridge. Of course our host knows the location where she could take a halfway proper picture. On our way there we had a look at the leisure park which was built under the bridge some years ago. You can find large lawns with benches for relaxing, playgrounds for the kids, a crazy golf course and riddles. We preferred sitting on a bench, enjoying the lovely surrondings and the sunshine.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8473/8103347956_c9022ba295_o.jpg

Isn't it looking fantastic?

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8190/8103334469_b6e615070d_o.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8468/8103348142_47911dafa6_o.jpg

We had to walk back home than, uphill this time.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8466/8103334671_558448d745_o.jpg

We came along a stadium, construction works were taking place there.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8330/8103334763_5e75c6446a_o.jpg

Can you see the church tower in the background of the photo?

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8053/8103334859_be83b96fab_o.jpg

This is where I am living at the moment, another five minutes walk from this church. I am terribly tired and my feet are aching - I will fall into bed immediately :)

Bye

Solingen, Germany - 21st October 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
we took a walk along river Wupper today. We went to Solingen-Unterburg and than into the forest.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8330/8121401491_a5037ee4eb_o.jpg

Katja showed us a weir.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8473/8121417402_543a317d3c_o.jpg

Following the river was fun.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8196/8121402009_7ca42f48d6_o.jpg

We found an ear trumpet which intensifies the sound of water running down the rocks - in rainy months a waterfall!

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8332/8121402267_b2b92e7735_o.jpg]

Where are my ears!?

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8473/8121402143_c7a15a852f_o.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8466/8121418232_2880ee4c46_o.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8046/8121418400_22914663f7_o.jpg

Later we left the river bank and went uphill into the forest. Here we found fly agaric.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8184/8121418578_e058170b78_o.jpg

.. across the valley of river Wupper.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8463/8121418716_156271a602_o.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8052/8121418904_a18fc66360_o.jpg

Later Katja showed me lovely old houses in Unterburg when we went back to the car. Most of them were built in 18th und 19th century.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8328/8121419052_77f39d8e77_o.jpg

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8191/8121419208_23a635f461_o.jpg

That's all for today.

Love

travelling, ... - 5th November 2012

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
today I packed my things and hopped into an envelope. I am now on my way to the USA, paradise for marshmallow lovers  :D

Have a look at the ugly weather!

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8350/8163387105_4d128e97c3_o.jpg

So I said good-bye to my friends here in Germany. I hope this trip will not last so long.

We had to pick up kids at the airport, so of course we took advantage of being in the area to feast at the Ghengis Khan restaurant! The host family LOVE this place because you can create your own meal and watch them cook it on the giant grill stone! :D

Host mom took us out to the community garden at about 10 pm to look at the supermoon, since there were too many trees around the family's house. It didn't seem that enormous from where we stood, but it sure was a pretty orange!
