    off we go

    Up and away… easier said than done. And then made it easy. On 15.5.2019, after we had celebrated our farewell from Rostock duly and with many of our friends and families wet and happy, the great journey should begin. So when the bus was packed (after two days of packing and sorting) and the last farewells were really done, we turned off to the east on the A 20. First destination: Poland. To melancholic piano music and own songs of Martin’s friend Jonas aka JonnyVersum, we let our eyes wander over the rape fields and became devoutly silent. Everyone was lost in his thoughts, what this great adventure might bring…

    Gdansk

    with new energy we started to Gdansk downtown. What should I write? Gdansk is madness. A cool, stylish city. Liberal, modern, multicultural, but at the same time full of history and the flair of an old Hanseatic city. The weather was just as varied as the city itself. After we had eaten in bright sunshine (this time no experiments from the map!) we were surprised by a thundering thunderstorm and crackling rain! And where better to find shelter than in the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, one of the largest indoor churches in the world? Waiting for the thunderstorm we even listened to the beginning…

    Malbork castle/ Sztum

    Malbork should be the next station. Closer and closer to Sztum, the small hometown of my father. Under bright sunshine we left the beautiful Hanseatic city of Danzig and set off for the next destination. Arrived in Marienburg, the name was the same program. The largest gothic brick castle in the world awaited us and its towers and gates showed us the right way when we arrived in the city. Awesome. We parked right next to the castle wall, with a view of the towers of the castle. In the sunset we enjoyed an opulent meal of asparagus, potatoes and Hollondaise sauce. In addition strawberries and a non-alcoholic beer (Lisa…

    the masurian lakes

    after we had spent the day relaxed in Sztum, we decided to go to Lithuania to get closer to the first destination Lovisa in Finland. We made good progress, until “PENG” suddenly a fat rockfall decorated the window. The first injury of Don Busso. Mh, how we will proceed with it, we will probably have to think about the next days. We decided to visit the biggest lake of Poland and the Masuren, the Polish Seeplatte, as a night spot, as we were already close by. Haha easier said than done. Google maps leads you to the lake, but if you, like us, look for an exclusive, i.e. lonely place,…

    Sztum- poland

    a true secret spot for the night (53°54’57.7″N 19°02’24.4″E) and a real secret tip. Two lakes, which are even connected, historical, gothic brick buildings, an idyllic small town, shopping possibilities and super cheap restaurants. With Sztum you don’t do anything wrong at first. There are surely still more such small, sleepy small towns in Poland, times from the main road to drive off and look around is worthwhile itself therefore. With a view to the lake, completely free parking and nobody complaining about wild camping, we can really recommend Sztum. We already mentioned the walk around the beautiful lake on the super new and well constructed circular path in the…

    the sniardwy lake

    to all the mountain bikers and ornies among you: Here! From Germany you can get here in one day, if you go through. Traumtastisch beautifully, Wildcamping nearly everywhere (at least nobody has addressed us yet, as it looks like legally I do not know however ^^) and even we have dared us because of the sheer number of the whole water and songbirds already to one, two destinations… We were two days completely alone. The lake offers countless excursion possibilities, but it is best to simply enjoy the seclusion and peace for a day or two. Swim, fish, take a walk and relax. Past Łuknajno through the forest. Coordinates: 53°47’33.9″N…
