On a cold winter’s we pack the Defender with stuff for a night in the car and drive north. We choose to explore the island Rügen.

Tiny snowflakes turn into a quick yet powerful snowstorm.

3 hours and 30 minutes alater we arrive on the island. Sunshine made it through thick clouds on the mainland and we go for a walk in Sassnitz and further to the famous white cliffs right next to the small city.

The chalk cliffs of Rügen have always fascinated me. When I was little my mum would introduce me to the work of the painter Casper David Friedrich, who, inspired by the beauty of this place, created a beautiful painting showing the cliffs and a few people standing on the edge of the cliffs.
