Why we have decided to do this?

Schonach vacation apartments beyermann

Schonach& LeisureIf you decide to come to the vacation home Beyermann, then you will stay in the ski village Nr. 1 – the beautiful Schonach. You have many opportunities for sports activities here in winter. For example, you can go downhill skiing, snowboarding or sledding with the dear little ones at the Winterberg ski lift. The best part is that this ski lift is right across the street from Ferienhaus Beyermann. Just outside the town center, on the Rohardsberg, there is another larger ski lift that can be used with the same card. You can also explore the winter wonderland of Schonach on skis on the large cross-country ski trail. In addition, you can admire a large ski jump in Schonach, where every year the Black Forest Cup takes place.

But of course it is beautiful in Schonach also in the summer time. It is a perfect place for hiking. Although you can also explore Schonach on your own, we recommend that you use the many signposted hiking trails. For example, the Westweg runs through Schonach, a popular trail for all hikers. In the middle of the Schonach forest there is also a nature discovery trail. Perfect for kids, teens and the young at heart. Discover the forest with all its fascinations. Also very recommendable is the unique in Germany Schalensteinweg. During this hike you will see stones with depressions that have mysteriously come in there.

In the heart of Schonach there is a large spa park. There you will find a children's playground and a large pond with ducks and two swans. There is also a miniature golf course with 18 holes. Right next door is an outdoor chess with large figures and a foosball table. Behind the miniature golf course is a Kneipp treading pool that is freely accessible to everyone. In winter you can skate on the outdoor ice rink with your own skates.

Too few apprentices, too few skilled workers. In the handicraft this tendency is clear. A look at three companies in Nidda reveals considerations that are not entirely commonplace.

The much lamented shortage of skilled workers in craft businesses has early causes: Few young people opt for appropriate training or they drop out of apprenticeships. There is no shortage of information opportunities, internships during school hours, and digital training platforms. Where is the problem?

Master stonemason Martin Röhling has two young journeymen in his team of six who were trained in his company and continue to work here. Nevertheless, he finds it difficult to find new trainees, even though he can offer several training courses: as a stonemason/stone sculptor, as a natural stone mechanic and as a stone cutter. Is the work physically too heavy? Röhling: "We now have many tools, such as cranes, plate trucks and more. That is why stonemasonry has long ceased to be a male-only profession. At the master school in Aschaffenburg, where I teach, four young female colleagues are currently gaining qualifications. Women are often more creative than men, have fine motor and drawing potentials."

Report of two city trips -What moved me to this shocking headline, you will learn in the course of this post..

Shopping and swimming in TUTICORIN

Last week we were unable to get to the village where we teach English in the mornings because of (urgent) repairs to the road there. Due to the plaguing lack of employment and the fatigue of my shampoo and shower gel supplies, we decided to head to Tuticorin. Although Fr. Marcel describes it as "not a big city," but it's enough for us in a small town that can handle 400 kilometers a day.000 souls, for the time being. The hour-long outward journey, in a bus bursting at the seams, is, as usual, made quite exciting by numerous pothole-induced bounces and the honking of traffic horns. More than half of the passengers, however, seem to be rather less bothered by this, as they slumber peacefully away.

Immediately after arrival, foreign "tourists" are of course intercepted by countless autorickshaw pilots. We decline with thanks, however, and set off on our own luck. It is not long before we are actually standing in front of a large department store. But even after rattling off all four floors, which are mostly clothing, electronics and RamschBut since the stores (all kinds of decoration, plastic goods and other knick-knacks) are still there, we are still with empty hands. Finally we find what we are looking for, and I was able to buy a razor, since I had left mine in Germany (one always forgets something). However, care products cost quite a lot for Indian conditions. For comparison: our very substantial lunch costs only one tenth of my purchases.

Portugal with kids

Alentejo is especially attractive for
Vacation with children because of the interesting nature and theme parks in this region – as an alternative to the coasts. For example, the funny little terracotta village in Arraiolos, which represents Portugal in miniature. The children can even get active themselves and form a terracotta figure, which will then find its place in the terracotta village.

Safari and African forest, a primate island and tropical rainforest are not unique to Sao Tome and Principe are some of the attractions at Badoca Safari Park near Vila Nova de Santo André in the county of Santiago do Cacém. On ca. 90 hectares of park live about 600 wild animals of 75 species. Playgrounds and learning areas such as the kangaroo park, pond of flamingos and ibises, park of coatis and bird park bring young and old children closer to wildlife. The park is open for visitors from the end of March to the end of November.

2000 years of history – discover historical Portugal with children

Here the Operation Menhir from Asterix suddenly alive. In Alentejo on the Costa Azul – 15 km from Evora tower Menire. The Menir dos Almendres is 4 m high. And 2 km further you find in cork oak groves more than 100 of the monoliths, forming a stone circle. The Menirs were probably built in the 5.- 4. Jh. Before Christ and served cults and for astronomical observations and calculations.

Yes, I did. I have completed my 35th run. And, yes, it hurt.

Since my wife had threatened me with a romantic weekend in the mountains, I had to come up with something, otherwise my long runs wouldn't have been possible.

Thus it fitted itself completely favorably that on Thursday my work went closed on the Wies'n. Since I canceled this year all my Wiesn Besäufnisse, I pinched also here. But that meant I had a free afternoon.

Putlitz.Feelings play a significant role in Olaf Waterstradt's life. Not least for this reason, the Putlitz author. Speechwriter called his first book "Pure Emotions. The little volume of poetry. Short prose he published a good 20 years ago. But the 58-year-old has always remained true to his credo: empathy for the reader.

"I started writing when I was still at school," recounts the Anklam-born. One of his first works may have been a poem about bad school lunches. "I put that up on the wall newspaper – and the next day my father had to show up at school," the writer says, grinning. Further critical remarks – for example, about a constantly drunk German teacher – then only circulated among the students.

He wrote for the Eulenspiegel back in the days of the East

For Olaf Waterstradt, writing was the appropriate form for criticizing things and taking a stand at a very early stage. "I wrote for the Eulenspiegel even back in the days of the East."The best-known satire magazine of the GDR was allowed to take more liberties than others at that time. His satirical vein lives out the author until today, not only in current publications in the Eulenspiegel and the publishing house of the same name.

Western europe still published in three editions

Johann Heinrich Bisterfeld's importance in the intellectual life of Europe in the XVIIth century. The influence of the Transylvanian school system, as well as theology and philosophy, has been recognized only in the last years. Although the twenty-five years he spent in service in Transylvania left deep traces in contemporary diplomacy and scholarship, they found almost no resonance in the cultural history of our century. The historians, literary scientists and philosophical historians divide his activity on the basis of their own points of view, while his tract, which has great impact De uno Deo has never been appreciated. Only Jan Kvačala's only written work of larger extent (1891) is about Bisterfeld. Today, this work is accepted as the basis for any new research. The correct inventory of his works. Correspondence has not been made yet. It is characteristic that his works published in Transylvania are not known abroad at all. The most striking example is the Handbook for the History of Philosophy (Grundriss 2001), published in 2001, which deals with Bisterfeld in a single chapter, but in the bibliography on the one hand the activities of the father Johann Bisterfeld and the son are mixed up, on the other hand the Transylvanian works do not appear at all.

As far as his works are concerned, it is noticeable that the work De uno Deo (Leiden, 1639) had not been followed by any other publications, although it is known from his reports that he had completed manuscripts already in the first half of the 40s. In view of these manuscripts, there was also a demand on the Western European book markets: almost simultaneously with the Hungarian editions, his works were published one after the other in the West, until the great Bisterfeldius redivivus (The Hague, 1661), which crowns his life's work. In the book, the autograph of which was sent to the editor by students from Transylvania, there are fourteen tracts by him on various subjects: the perfect variant of his book Logica and the first editions of his linguistic, physical, combinatorial and didactic works. While the publication of his works in Transylvania has been canceled after his death, his famous work De uno Deo in Western Europe still appeared in three editions. The last work of him was published in 1702, since then Bisterfeld's books have fallen into oblivion.

His correspondence, only incompletely known today, was of imposing extent: there are 86 published and 35 unpublished letters of him known. On the basis of the preserved information it can be stated that he kept an extraordinarily extensive correspondence in political-diplomatic as well as in scientific matters. The addressees of the letters lived in Central and Western Europe. Some interesting letters tell us how highly Bisterfeld was appreciated in political and scientific circles in Europe: Marin Mersenne, Ludwig Camerarius, Hugo Grotius, Andreas Rivetus, Friedrich Spanheim, Samuel Hartlib, Johann Amos Comenius, John Dury, of politicians Cardinal Mazarin and Axel Oxenstierna all wrote letters to the Transylvanian scholar. The most interesting of the letters preserved in the Rákóczi archive, addressed to the young Duke Sigismund Rákóczi, were published by Sándor Szilágyi in the 1890s: thirty-eight letters written between 1649 and 1651. The letters from Sigismund Rákóczi to Bisterfeld have disappeared. Numerous letters of his are still unpublished in Western European archives and it would be very useful for the Transylvanian cultural history to publish these letters. Especially important are the letters to Andreas Rivetus, because he played an important role as a theologian in Leiden, later as a court preacher and educator in the Hague to the governor of Orange Frederick Henry. With the help of Bisterfeld's estate, recently found in Nagyszeben (Sibiu), it is possible to reconstruct some of the names of his correspondents, among which we notice the name of Johann Rulitius from Amsterdam, who was the pastor of the local German parish. Among his friends were the Gdansk priest Albertus Niclasius and the Leiden theologian Friedrich Spanheim, but he also had good relations with Claudius Salmasius from Leiden and David Frölich from Käsmarkt (Késmárk, Kešmarok).
