Darß - on the way to Weststrand
Germany

Road crossing in the woods of Darß. Darß was partially a controlled area in the time of the Communism because of the nearby coast of the Baltic Sea. The roads are paved with concrete slabs, which also seems to originate from the time of the GDR.  They are typical slabs used along the frontier area in the former East Germany to allow the vehicles of Frontier Guards to pass by under any conditions.

Today, the straight, long roads are open for cycling and hiking as well as for horse-drawn carriages. Be careful, there are zillions of mosquitos in the forest, so don't forget your Autan in the Summer.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
