HitchBot does Germany

HitchBot, the famous pint-sized Canadian robot, which bravely hitchhiked across Canada from Halifax, NS to Victoria, BC in summer 2014, has gotten itchy feet again. Its new endeavours will take it to Germany, where one of its creators originated from. The robot has learned the language and seems to be eager to travel down the Autobahn at full throttle. The journey will start in Munich February 13th and end February 22nd. (special TV coverage on PRO SIEBEN "Galileo" 19:05).

Bon voyage, HitchBot. We hope you'll have a blast!

A Sunny Winter Afternoon

It rained, and rained. A lot. All week. Around freezing temperatures. All in all no fun weather, not even much fun to drive. However, Sunday morning the clouds gave way to blue sky. After having been confined to indoors for so long we were eager to go for a hike. Above 600m the wet stuff turned into white stuff. The snow made crusty noises under our feet as we followed the trail uphill and visited our most favourite place in the Black Forest, All Saints Abbey. We even spotted wildlife! A day that compensated for all the poor weather of the last week!

Into the Woods

The other day we had the most beautiful weather and decided to go for a short walk through the forest. What a good idea, as we had the most beautiful light! Luckily I had brought my camera to capture a bit of the magic!
