I left my wildcamera on a spot in the nearby forest for only 2 weeks. When I checked the footage there was a great diversity of animals filmed. Even a Bear and the very rare Lynx! Check out the video below to see the video.
I found a new badgers burrow by following tracks in the winters last snow. When I checked the images on the wildcamera it turned out to be inhabited by a mother badger with two cubs. Check the video to see how the cubs discover their backyard for the first time and see what animals come and visit them.
I was so lucky to be around when the cubs were allowed to play outside for the first time in daylight. Check the video below to see how they enjoyed themselves.
Last year, the two German comedians, Uli and Suso went into the woods from our campsite to survive in the wilderness for two weeks. They captured their adventure and turned it into a real movie. Men Staring at Trees can be viewed via the Youtube link below. (The film is in German but Youtube can provide subtitles).
In May 2022, Boettcher and Engelhardt went into the wilderness of the Carpathians. They wanted to spend two weeks in the forest, far away from the achievements of the modern world, to get a clear idea of what life would be like without these achievements. How the civilized man feels without civilization. What longings, insights and problems would show up. “Men who stare at trees” is a research project for Uli Boettcher’s stage program “Auszeit”, which premiered in October ’22.
Although most of our village didn’t change much for the last 100 years, the future made an entrance. We have established a Starlink internet connection. This means that we can host digital nomads now. You can now enjoy the freedom, nature and quietness and still get some work done.
Starlink reaches speeds of 250 mbps which is faster then the average household connection. So if you want to come and work remotely you’re very welcome.
