"We went on an adventure!!"

there and back again - holiday adventures of a bunch of hobbits.

We've been to the Odenwald in Hesse and stayed on a medieval castle, Burg Breuberg, next to Höchst. An excellent point to start out expeditions for the bones of Fafnir the dragon, stonetrolls in the felsenmeer of Reichenbach and other questes.

Here are some of the sketchbookpages:
