What a wonderful idea, Nancy
, to create this new topic!
I am living in Germany
, region Francfort/Main, in a rural area named "Odenwald".
I have always been loving nature so much, so that as young girl already I wanted to become forester. But unfortunately at that time it wasn't possible in Germany to become a female forester. So I've chosen a completely other profession. I've done engineering for drinking-water supply all over the world.
Now I'm 64 and retired. My real name is Barbara.
Now I got lot of time to spend it in my beloved forest, watching animals and birds, get to know even better trees and other plants, to pick mushrooms, to protect the nature
I've been active member of NABU for many years (Naturschutzbund Deutschland - Nature Protection Society of Germany).
My second passion is learning languages, so that I can get in closer contact to people from other countries. I have always loved to mix with international people.
That is why I know to speak English, French (I love especially France), Spanish and since a few years I try to learn Polish by myself (it's terribly hard...)
A couple of years ago I discovered the webcams of the white storks in Germany and not much later Looduskalender
with its marvellous equipments of cameras
(I prefer the Black stork camera and the Alutaguse forest camera), its wonderful, instructiv reports about the nature and - last not least - its interesting, nice people.
So, with Looduskalender I'm really happy to find the ideal place for myself: nice people from all over the world, who are interested in nature like me. Fantastic!
