Coastal vibes, old city love in Rostock and nature slow down in Tessenow

After some relaxing days on Schwerin’s lake in Tessenow it was time for some city adventures again. Once more dear Bauke was welcoming us. I decided to take it slow and visit the coast on the way. The weather was adventurous. Somehow I ended up on this dead end road at a place that seemed very familiar. After having a look around there were no doubts – I ended up on the campground where my ex boyfriend’s aunt and uncle have (or had) a caravan. Me and my Ex stayed there for a week, something like 15 years ago. Amazing that I just stumbled upon the place and quite interesting to visit memories from a time that seems to be another life. I remember how I had some kind of meltdown there, getting worked up about being too fat – how far I have come, how different life is now, how fluent we and our personalities are.
I remember the walking path along the shoreline and we walk through hail and puddles and enjoy beautful views.
Afterwards we continue East along the coast. Next stop – Rerik for a fish roll, a play along the beach and watching clouds, rain and rainbows from my cozy passenger seat.

We spent two weeks in my old home and love Rostock, meeting old and new friends – two-legged and four-legged, eating good food … I visit a fleamarket and fill up my library with books about philosophy and psychology. I say goodbye to the Buddhilde, a shared multi family home with its own treehouse. Unfortunately it will be sold.
Once more we are staying with my dear friend Bauke and enjoy many wonderful moments with him.

After those two weeks full of impressions we crave slowness, space and nature and make our way once more to Tessenow. We get to slow down and spend a few days in this beautiful place accompanied by some breath-taking late summer sunsets. There is always something new to discover here. This time it is a toilet.
It’s interesting how your perspective shifts when you live a simpler life. How a toilet (without a door) can fill you with so much joy and excitement. How a toilet can get you lost in its creation.
This piece of art was created by Mike-Georg. He wanted to make something smaller and less “fancy” and he wanted to spent less time but . . . it just happened. It might just be the most beautiful compost toilet I have ever seen.
