    Dümmer See & Stemwede

    September 21, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Feeling refreshed after a couple of days at Harpstedt we continued on our journey towards Luxembourg. We toured Germany for nearly 4 months when we set off on our travels but two places we didn't visit were Dümmer See and Stemwede. We'd previously spent a couple of summers at a little campsite near Dümmer Lake and while we were there we visited an open air music festival at Stemwede. We have fond memories of the area so we decided to drop in and reminisce.

    Despite it being over 4 years since we'd last seen the lake and its surroundings, nothing much had changed. It was a warm day with a light breeze but the windsurfing shop and school were closed. We had a short wander along the tarmaced path that ran parallel to the shore. People walked dogs, jogged and cycled, making the most of the good weather. We had thought about hiring a dinghy but despite a few lessons taking place for school kids at one of the small marinas, nowhere seemed to advertise rentals, so Will made a picnic and we set off in the canoe. As we climbed in off the wooden launch ramp, the sights and smell of the washed up weed brought back memories of when we used to windsurf from here. Our route to the opposite shore was rather circuitous because we'd forgotten about the line of buoys marking out the nature reserve by the shore where boats were prohibited. Dümmer's scenery is low key rather than stunning. The water is full of sediment, the perimeter cordon means there is a lot of time spent away from the surrounding countryside, which is made up of low lying fields, forest and a few wind turbines. It was however a great feeling to be back and out on the lake! We passed several sail boats and as we were approaching the channel of buoys that allowed us access to a marina, there was a large wooden craft under engine power taking 30 or so tourists on a sightseeing trip. Hauling the canoe up a handy launch ramp, we left it on the grass and ate lunch on a bench looking out on the lake and marina. We could have hired a sail boat from here but by now the wind had died and we were glad we had paddle power to get back to the van. The round trip ended up taking nearly 3 hours so we were a little tired by the time we had driven the short distance to the free Stellplatz overlooking a park in Stemwede. Along the way the large fields of corn and cereals that had already been cropped reminded us of the music festival ground but we didn't actually pass it. Our overnight spot was on grass with a short walk through the adjacent forest where Shaggy Ink Caps grew between the leaves and needles. It was quiet and seemed the perfect place to chill after an enjoyably tiring day.

    Die Weltreise geht weiter

    August 16 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    „Deutschland gehört auch zur Welt“, haben wir uns gedacht und so geht es mit unserem Wohnmobil weiter auf Weltreise, nachdem wir wieder etwas Heimatgefühl getankt haben. Die genaue Route ist mal wieder ungewiss, aber grob soll es erst einmal in den Süden Deutschlands gehen. Aber der perfekte Auftakt für unsere Reise ist gar nicht so weit weg, denn wir gehen aufs Stemweder Open Air. Hier treffen wir eine Freundin aus Osnabrück, unsere witzigen Campnachbarn drücken uns Henna-Farbe in die Hand und somit wird aus einer Weltkugel an Kimos Arm eher eine Pizza.Read more
