My Illlustrated Travel Journal with Essays about Roman and Mediaeval History and some Geology

  My Blog is Taking a Holiday

I'm leaving for Wales tomorrow and will return on May 28. Normal posting will begin soon thereafter.

Hold the thumbs for some nice weather. Rain may be typically Welsh but makes for bad photos and wet feet.

But I won't leave you without some pics.

Spring evening at the Kiessee Lake

I finally got around to bringing my camera when I walk in the Kiessee area. It's very close to my flat and nice for an evening stroll. The only disadvantage is that a lot of people get the same idea when the weather is fine.

There are meadows where you can often find families and other groups complete with portable barbecue grill and lots of bottled beer that had been balanced on bicycle luggage holders.

The lake is a flooded gravel pit. Right now there are some problems with too much duckweed growing on the water. The ducks that are supposed to eat it prefer the bread they get fed. Lazy buggers.

Nature is really catching up and May is coming.

Because spring green is so pretty, here's another photo.
Take a gnome! And a raincoat. :)

Remember Welch Rabbit tastes yummy but is not a good plot bunny.

According to my mother the King of England was visiting Wales and requested rabbit for dinner, there wasn’t any available so the served him what they had and told him it was Welch Rabbit.

Have fun!
Have a great trip! Take lots of pictures. :)
Soothing, beautiful shots.
Do take lots of photos.
Happy holidays, Gabriele!
Have a wonderful trip!!! And thank you for the photos! (I imagine we'll have some of Wales when you get back? (said in a hopeful tone of voice!)

The Lost Fort is a travel journal and history blog based on my travels in Germany, the UK, Scandinavia, and other places. It includes essays on Roman and Mediaeval history, as well as some geology, illustrated with photos of old castles and churches, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes.

Location: Germany

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
