Vollkorn – full grain distillate by Schmidt & Sons
I was able to finally try the brand new Distillate by Eugen Schmidt Söhne and decided I had to have a bottle of this fine one afterwards. It is made out of various full grains from the south german region, a special “soft” water and great distillery skills to bring out a taste of grain, flour, bread “into the bottle”. With it´s 40% alcohol it´s still a soft and mild spirit absolutely worth a try and beyond comparison to the typical german “Korn”. Check out the website which will show more info soon: http://www.voll-korn.de
No time for hiking recently, but a short walk in the countryside in the woods is always possible and worth it. Some nice colored leaves, the always so green moss, a corncob left behind, the panorama of the alps or the flight/landing of the bees.
Lake of Constance – The Fisherman: Support your local fishermen, what a joy to have young guns join the path of their fathers. I met our fishermen of trust last weekend and had a short chat with him to finally witness the fishing of our fish in the lake of constance. An agreement was made that I will call him be-cause he is fed up with people asking to accompany him over and over again and never show up. So I called monday evening to meet today at 4:30 am. Somehow i could not sleep after 1am. The rest is mostly told by the images who aren´t to less and I´m a bit sorry to post a 2nd fishing post today. But it is at it is and the memories about this great morning on the lake are still fresh and I had the desire to share them.
Adam & Eve Lifestyle Accessories – Lindau Bodensee:
We were around 8 years old when Jeff and I were chased by a angry dog – we made it. More than 30 years later my friend Jeffrey Robertson bailed out of the IT-Business and started his own shop last month. A fine selection of high quality, colorful and innovative products. The focus is on bags, handbags, backpacks, wallets and accessories.
Mountain panorama this morning:
What a great panorama view on my way cycling to work. The water in front is the lake of constance (Bodensee), behind the newly snow covered alps and the big one is the Säntis. I better hurry up to make some more hiking trips this autumn or snow shoes are the other option.
Ecke 32 Manufacture Store Konstanz: After a too strong coffee I decided to cycle to Konstanz for a visit at the Ecke 32 Manufacture Store. Lars Nehren was able to get some of the finest brands available to the lake of constance (Bodensee) area for what I´m and others are really happy about. Labels like Tellason, Red Wing, Momotaro, Merz beim Schwanen, Schiesser Revival, LVC and Wolverine just to name a view, are presented only a view metres away from the Konstanz Cathedral. First thursday in the month from 7pm to 9pm he hosts the possibility of private shopping upon appointment. Thanks Lars for your time, even on a very busy saturday!
Mary caught some Kretzer, Flußbarsch or Egli fish: While I was struggling on Sunday with a “bit” of a hangover, Mary went fishing and caught not huge but a lot of Kretzer – Flußbarsch or Egli´s (i guess it is calle Perch). They were a bit too big to be eaten like sardines (the whole) but great in taste. Thanks a lot for this!
Hohentwiel Schaufelraddampfer – paddlewheeler Being sunday on the lake for a bit of sailing the Hohentwiel came really close to us. The Hohentwielwas build in 1913 and was once the stateship of King Wilhelm II. of Baden Württemberg. Put out of service in 1963 it was restored in the 80th until 1988 and is since cruising on the lake of constance. Inside the ship you can see the engine working and see the full beauty of a perfect restauration. Do not miss the chance of one of her dinner or jazz cruises on the lake – could be an unforgettable time.
