We were on grant Christmas market tour in Munich. We had some days to spend and looked to many different markets. We were at the Residenzschloss-Weihnachtsmarkt, Am Sendlinger Tor, on the Marienplatz, at the Englischen Garten and in Schwabingen.

There was a speaking elk. I must inspect him close! As he started I lost my hat out of surprise!

Especially exciting where the different sledges!

The decorate the garbage bins too… How strange…

Every little Collie Knight get wound paws while walking. But there a so many places and stalls to enjoy!

There’s a figurine displays too!

I beautified some monuments.

Sometimes you must like your humans very well!

The stage was mine!

We were on different other spots in Munich but that is for an other story.

Medival Christmas Market Esslingen

On our way back from the interview with my potential squire we stopped at the medival Christmas market of Esslingen.

We parked a good walk a way from the market. So we could enjoy the city a bit.

The art of the city is useful! I am impressed!

The market itself is beautiful but packed! There are lots of stalls but the hustle is really big!

There is a district for >medival< plays like axe throwing and a medival hand operated feris wile for the small squires and ladies.

There was a dragon, too. But he was to shy to pose with me!

We were there exact at the right time to see the alchemist working! The wise Wizard of Woof would be stunned by his college.

While the alchemist makes his show I occupied his stall and rise awareness of Santa Paws!

We found a mistletoe stall, with fresh mistletoes. We buyed one for the wise Wizard of woof!

The human stuff got hungry and than they ate like kings. I watched them and no thing let them drop something for me. That was so cruel of them!

We saw a christmas parade! I cheer very loud.

It got dark and cold. We decided to go home.

Before we got home we found a ghost train! I will tell it my new squire if he arrived here!

The travel by car is complicated. The highway and the enviromental zones in Germany made it hard to arrive properly and parking space is rare.

Christmas Market Darmstadt

Santa Paws and his human helpers traveled to Darmstadt.

They could not avoid the beautiful Christmas market.

There are lots of different stalls! From basket waver to pancake maker there was so many!

For Sir Barkalot we got a new sword.

Especially exiting was that original Swiss Raclette stall! It smelled Amazing!

I met a colleague of the wise Wizard of Woof!

There is a carousel too!

I have post with little and big humans! I tolled them the importance of Santa Paws! I smiled until a litte human girl tried to kidnap me! Then I parkt sharp and the situation was okey again! Little Humans need lots of training!

Interesting is the human relation to art. Not my taste really… bit for territory marking it is ok!

We have made a quick trip to the city and found some special things!

I visited the local alchemist supply store for the wise Wizard of Woof. It was closed…

At the end we meet the local rescue dog group. I am so lucky that I not passed the examination. The poor things must sit in the cold and wait!

Christmas Market Waldshut

We were on the Christmas market in Waldshut. But let me tell the story from the begin.

The day started with a early car ride. We meet Uncle Sam and discovered a new path through the woods.

There is a straw bunker. That have so much straw that it will fill every manger around! It is interesting what you find if you go a new way!

We had have lots of fun in the woods and the snow!

After the incredible walk we started our way south to Waldshut. There is a little and special christmas market!

I posed with the statures of the saints and found new friends and admirer!

Ther Market is mostly a craftsmanship and food market. The bigist highlights are the Flammlachs and the Met stall.

I I convinced Humom to share with me her Flammlachs. He tasted incredible! Get one if you have the option!

There is a beautiful Christmas crib. But a doggy shepherds was missing. I tried to fill this gap! Am I good?

Yule

Today is the shortest day and a day to celebrate. Get your delicious Yule meal and some mead friends and gather together!

We celebrate today the return of the light. The days get longer and brighter from today on! The gray of the autumn goes and the white of the snow comes.

Every wizard has a Yule blessing spell. Here is my for you.

Yule the shortest of days, 
so dark and no one says.
The light returns,
the sorrow burns.

The bold darkness do not fear,
the light is near.
The darkness is the shield,
where the lights power whiled.

The lights get brighter, 
the darkness lighter.
It's time to do something good
es every being should.

The blessing for Yule,
is an eternal rule.
Go from home to home, room to room
and remove the old years evil doom.


Might the light today and in future shine in your hearts and live. Be shielded with smoothing mantle of the Darkness.

The wise Wizard of Woof

Day 11 – Landsend, Penzance and St. Austell

On more day dawned on my travel. The male servant was going with me to the next bush. And I was so sleepy that I could barely move.

Then the lady got ready for the next drive und the metal horse starts working.

After a bit of time we were at a new part of the coast. It looks different and was called Lands End. What a funny name for the most west point in England!

Our first stop was the tourist center. I tried to breath fire like a dragon. With more or less success. I thought that was a good skill to my paladin character sheet! But the humans found it funny!

After this I inspected a new transportation device. Looks interesting but is louder then a dragon!

The we start to explore the coast. The wind was so strong that I nearly started flying!

I must say the cliffs are steep and the drop is far. Please don’t go to close to the edge!

The the humans made me to a feared pirate!

The male servant had have bad joke day! He tied my to an anchor. Even before I could make a funny thing!

We checked out the area around the farm. There are artists in the farm as well.

One of the clay artists made me a paw print! I got it a few weeks later!

There was a pirate artist, too! We made a photo together so we can’t forget each other.

There were sheeps and pigs! I saw both and I must say boring the were in a coral!

But the landscape was breathtaking!

After this we walked to the real Lands End point. Unfortunately there was no sign because of a bad storm was coming and the sign was demontage out of safety reasons.

But we have a image of the last house of England!

The the humans want shopping. The Lady and I waited for the shop and the the shop closed before the Lady could peak in! We found some interesting things in the other shops!

I was admired and photographed a lot.

After this we drove to Penzance a little city on our way back, We explored it.

The Lady got a new belt!

The we discovered the harbor. But we don’t found something real good to eat.

Because of this reason we drove to St. Austell. I watched the car and the humans were go eating. Because the found no tavern where I was allowed. But It was okay I could sleep! The metal tin is practical for sleeping.

The we drove back to the Inn. I got a good meal and I could sleep!

Review

We review the drive to the most west point of England!

Travel

The drive was lang. One stop or two are needed.

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone white Bone white

To Penzance we came fast. But you should look at it on a sunny day!

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone white

St. Austell is an easy drive, but you need time to get there.

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone white Bone white

Adventures

Lands End is interesting and a very good place for a doggy knight. You must have see the farm with the pottery and the last house. The sign is optional but a nice to have! We recommend to go to Lands End.

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold

The little city Panzance is good to explore and there are nice shops. But the are closing early. We don’t found something to eat with a collie knight. Take something with you!

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone white Bone white

We saw not many of St. Austell because it was late. The humans had have a great dinner. I was watching the metal horse!

Dog friendlines

Lands End is a very good place for a doggy knight. The ways are no problem even if the knight is older.

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold

Penzance is not the thing for a doggy knight but there is a belt maker. He has collars and leashes!

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone white Bone white

St Austell is not so welcoming to we found not the right tavern for all of us. The doggy knight got the important job to watch the metal horse from inside.

Tag 11 – Landsend, Penzance und St. Austell

Ein weiterer Tag brach bei meiner entbehrungsvollen Reise an. Der Knecht führte mich in der Umgebung zu einem Busch und ich taumelte schlaftrunken hinter ihm her.

Dann war die Lady auch schon bereit für eine weitere große Fahrt. Es ging dann mit dem Metallpferd los.

Ehe ich mich versah, waren wir an einer neuen Küste, und zwar der von Lands End, dem westlichen Punkts Englands/Cornwalls.

Als Erstes haben wir uns das Touristen-Zentrum angesehen. Ich versuchte wie in Drache Feuer zu speien.

Dann inspiziere ich ein modernes Menschen Fluggerät. Ich wette, wenn das fliegt, ist es Lauter als jeder Drache!

Dann begannen wir damit die Küste zu erkunden und der Wind wehte mich dabei fast weg.

Ich muss auch sagen, dass es an dieser Küste sehr weit runter geht! Haltet euch von Klippen fern!

Dann verwandelten die menschlichen Diener mich in einen gefährlichen Piraten.

Der Knecht fand es lustig mich an einen Anker anzubinden! Dabei hatte ich noch gar keine Chance etwas anzustellen!

Wir erkundeten den Bereich um die dort ansässige Farm. In der Farm arbeiten Künstler.

Es gibt dort einen Ton-Künstler. Dieser hat meinen Pfotenabdruck genommen und mir wir eine Erinnerung zugeschickt!

Einer dieser Künstler war als Pirat verkleidet! Wir haben uns natürlich zusammen abgelichtet, um eine Erinnerung zu behalten.

Dann gab es dort auch noch Schafe und Schweine. Ich habe mir beides angesehen und fand es nur mäßig interessant.

Die Landschaft ist aber beeindruckend!

Danach wanderten wir zum eigentlichen Lands end den westlichsten Punkt von England! Leider gibt es kein Beweisfoto, da das Schild wegen Sturmes abgebaut wurde.

Wir haben aber ein Bild vom letzten Haus Englands!

Danach frönten wir der Shopping-Lust. Nervig war nur, das die Lady mit mir vor dem Laden wartete und der vor unserer Nase zu machte, als der Knecht erkunden konnte. Trotzdem retteten wir ein paar Erinnerungsstücke.

Ich verteilte natürlich wieder viele meiner Memorabilien. Man muss ja Werbung für sich selber machen.

Danach fuhren wir nach Penzance, einer kleinen Stadt. Wir erkundeten diese.

Die Lady kaufte sich einen neuen schicken Gürtel.

Dann fanden wir den Hafen. Aber so richtig warm wurden wir nicht mit ihr und auch das Angebot von Nahrung viel eher gering aus.

Deshalb fuhren wir noch nach St. Austell. Dort futterten die menschlichen Diener und ich konnte meiner liebsten Tätigkeit dem Schlafen frönen. Manchmal ist dieses Metallpferd doch praktisch!

Danach fuhren wir in unsere Unterkunft, wo ich mein Abendessen bekam und mich danach ausstrecken konnte.

Bewertung

Heute bewerte ich die Reise zum westlichsten Punkt der britischen Insel!

Reise

Die Fahrt nach Lands End war etwas zu lang für meinen Geschmack. Eine Pause verträgt es gut.

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone white Bone white

Nach Penzance ging es dafür schnell. Ein schönes Städtchen, aber nichts für einen Tag mit schlechtem Wetter,

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone white

St. Austell erreicht man gut, aber es dauert so seine Zeit bis man dort angekommen ist.

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone white Bone white

Erlebnis

Lands End ist ein spannender Ort besonders die Töpferei, die Farm und die Landschaft sind spannend. Leider wird bei Storm das Hinweisschild abgebaut. Wir können einen Besuch empfehlen!

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold

Das kleine Städtchen Penzance ist gut zu erkunden, hat schöne Laden zum Gucken, aber Collie-Ritter und menschliche Gesellschaft sollten auf die Ladenöffnungszeiten schauen, die Läden schließen früh und auch das Angebot an Gaststätten, wo der Collie-Ritter hinein darf ist gering.

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone white Bone white

Von St. Austell habe ich leider nicht so viel gesehen. Die menschlichen Diener überließen mir die Bewachung des Metallpferdes nach einer Pipirunde.

Hundetauglichkeit

Lands End ist sehr hundetauglich. Man entdeckt unglaublich viel! Die Wege sind auch für ältere Hunderitter geeignet.

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold

Penzance ist leider nicht so einladend für einen Hunderitter. Aber der Gürtelmacher ist interessant, da er auch Hundehalsbänder anbietet.

Bone gold Bone gold Bone gold Bone white Bone white

Auch St Austell ist nicht so einladend. Richtige gute Tavernen bieten leider nicht die Möglichkeit den Hunderitter, mit zu bringen.

Christmas market Frankfurt

We were on christmas market tour in Frankfurt am Main and meet Sky the local Husky Queen!

We learned much over Frankfurt. Humom and Hudad were never in Frankfurt. Humom was near the City as little puppy, but can’t remember it well.

The market has lots of stalles, crips and a dog bakery! Unfortunately all interesting treats have egg in it. And the without egg are with another no-no-food… I ordered that this must be changed! I will tell this scandal Santa Paws!

Sky leads us to the best places in the city and tolled all her subjects of my Christmas mission. We showed some children the importance of Santa Paws!

Day 10 – Tintagel and King Arthur’s Hall

The Lady said the day will be magic. I thing she took the wrong magic mushroom! Magical? I am Sir Barkalot and not the wise Wizzard of Woof. Okey they send me on this quest… but I am not so magical!

The day started with a short walk at the sea and a the metal horse.

The the Lady saw stars. I mean literally! The male servant closed the cargo hatch expediently on the head of the Lady. By all dog gods and goddesses her cry must be heard until Germany. I hided as precaution. She was hurt and furios. I will not stand between a fury and her prey.

Then we started driving over the roads.

We stopped in a small village and explored the Shops and the local bakery. I say only two words Cornish Pastry! So yummy! Even if you got only some small crumbs.

The we walked down a beautiful path until we found a small gatekeeper house.

The humans showed there passports and I drank from the extra made water bowl.

We followed the the path further and found a magical bridge to King Arthurs castle. There shall be the last remains of the castle where Merlin, Arthur and his Knights lived. I was so exited! I am the first Collie Knight in centuries there!

Then the stuff discussed a issue with low and high tide. No idea what this is, but before I could set my feet to the real castle thing, they brought me down a steep stair.

The stair ended on a strand. Where I found new admirer and got some photos.

The the brought me to a Cave that was invested with bats! The called it Merlins Cave und told me that here was the magic done. I posed again.

The male servant fall on exploring the Cave and I had to go through water! Disgusting!

It was scary but cool! Then the Lady and I walked the strand and found beautiful stones and shells.

The we walked the stair up and we meet the local merchants. I gave away many memorabilia and lots of photos where taken.

In the meantime I was hijacked by a little Cornish Dragon. He slipped in my pocket and made him self his home there. His name is Corny Shong.

On the way from the castle I was attacked by a Zombie plant! On of the dangers of England! The Lady came to my rescue and my armor protected me.

Finally we explored the castle itself.

Especially the cliffs where breath taking.

We visited the famous Gallos-Statur.

Samhain is approaching. I was allowed to make some magic rituals for training.

At the end we could explore the outer court yard on the other side of the bridge.

I liked the attention and the many photos that was taken! The payment was good! Treats everywhere!

The the Lady got fippy! Her bladder must be very small. We must hurry down a small path. I had a bit fear for the Lady but we arrived well.

We found an injured jeep driver. I started to give emotional support.

The the humans needed foot again! Why I am not getting food in a restaurant I don’t know. We walked back to the villages.

I got a microscopic portion of Fish and Chips! This doesn’t count as retribution!

Then the humans were shopping. The looked on the clock and it was still to early to get a next meal. The figured out that it was possible to look to King Arthurs Hall too. They started the tin can and we were on our way.

This time we stopped midth in a field. And you will not believe me there were free roaming sheeps, cows and horses! Without any boundary or fence! We walked there and bam. A stone transformed in a sheep!

The male servant walked to a grey sheep through a swampy area… Can a big magician tell him how the compass and the map are working? Or that a magnet interferes with a compass?

Add least the Lady took the job to locate the sight. We found a stone circle. But unfortunately it was closed. An excavation where there and forgot to reopen it after working.

My feeds hurts from the long walking. I was happy to get back in the car. But Oh my doggy goodness are this cattle grids unpleasing – the whole car wobbles and shakes!

After this the human stuff got hungry again. But the Cafe hat already closed because we got late! Than they are gone to a bar and ordered chips and peanuts! A healthy diet looks different!

But I am to tired to discuss this with the stuff. I hope tomorrow it will be less action!

Review

Today I review a magical day!

Adventures

Tintagle is beautiful and the right thing for a brave Collie knight with out movement issues. There are cliffs and points there are very steep. Unruly young knight should taken on a very short leash.

The magical stone that transformed in to a sheep was the real thing! Everyone must see the look in the human face if the watch the transformation. For robber barons or experts in herding is a lesh obligate! The sheeps, horses and cows came in touch distance!
