No new posts about travel or photography in the near future

Hi folks, as you might have noticed, I didn’t publish new posts since May 2020. The reason for this is, as you might think, the Corona pandemic. I cannot travel anymore as often as I would like and I cannot plan anymore. Any travel I’m planning in advance could be cancelled or restricted.

Therefore, I decided to put my project Snoopy Alien into the “on hold” mode.

But the Corona crisis is not the end of this website, not at all! In fact, I have some more ideas how to keep this project alive, and I’ll be back when the time is right.

Until then, I’ll keep Snoopy Alien alive because I worked very hard on creating blogposts and it deserves to live on.

See you, folks.

These facts about German carnival will broaden your horizon

carnival germany, german carnival, fasching, germany carnival

In case you visit Germany* in January or February, you will probably often hear a word during this time which is “Fasching” [faʃiŋ]. Fasching is the main term for the German carnival period. It’s also called the “fifths season” and in some places jesting time (närrische Zeit). But it’s very different to the carnival you maybe know from Brazil. For in February in the northern hemisphere, it would be difficult to dance on the streets in light clothing. Therefore, the carnival time in Germany is about different things, but it’s also a huge event. In this article, I’d like to give you some insights about Fasching which would broaden your horizon. So read on, folks.
