Archery weekend in the woods of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern with my friend Volker aka 'Der Viking'

There are certain people in life that you keep crossing paths with and my friend Volker is one of these people. This story is a nice example of just that...

The past week I've been tackling Destination Challenges in North Rhine-Westfalia and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Now I take on these challenges Monday to Friday and last Friday I happened to be in Waren, a cute town by Muritz lake.

Turned out that my friend Volker was only 20 km away in Grünow bei Neustrelitz. He was spending the weekend with his archer friends from Bogenclub Neubrandenburg and immediately invited me to join them for a fun introduction to archery.

Honestly, I could use some peace and quiet after a quite intense week road tripping around Germany.
Couldn't have spent the weekend any better...

From Woblitz See I made my way to Grünow to spent the weekend with my friend Volker who happened to be in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern as well. 

He came from Berlin to spent time with his archer friends in the woods... What are the chances! 👍🌳 It turned out to be a wonderful weekend with an archery initiation, relaxing walks in nature, beers and songs around the campfire. 


Perfect to charge my batteries for another week of challenges to come in #Brandenburg& Berlin. 😎

Ladies and gents, let me introduce to Volker aka 'Der Viking' as I like to call him 😁

We met in 2013 in #Berlin, ended up sharing an apartment which resulted in some crazy Berlin adventures and we are friends ever since. 😎🍺 


It's always great meeting up again. This time in the woods of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern ðŸŒžðŸŒ³ðŸ˜Š 



I ended up bow shooting for most of the weekend and if you are wondering, yes I missed a lot 😁
By the end it got a bit better though. I guess as with everything: Practice makes perfect 😉
