Ilka on Tour

Wir freuen uns immer sehr, wenn unsere Gäste ihren Weg zum zweiten oder dritten Mal zu uns finden.

Über einen ganz besonderen Gast freuen wir uns die Tage am meisten. Ihr Name ist Ilka Schaumberg und ihre Erzählungen über Ihre Reise sind jedes mal spannend und aufregend!

p1060939-e1397845878463 (Ilka bei ihrem ersten Besuch)

Ilka tourt mit Ihrem Fahrrad “Rolffi” quer durch Deutschland nach einem recht außergewöhnlichen Muster:
Eine außenstehende Person würfelt zuerst ein Bundesland aus in welches Sie als nächstes fährt. Eine zweite Person darf eine Stadt im jeweiligen Bundesland auswürfeln. Ein Dritte Person würfelt dann eine Kategorie (Erholung; Mut; Soziales) und darf dann anschließend die zu erfüllende Tagesaufgabe aus dem jeweiligen Stapel ziehen. Wenn alles gut geht hat Ilka nun ihr nächstes Reiseziel und die dort zu erfüllende Aufgabe vor sich.

p1060777-e1396825316229 (der Würfel, der über vieles entscheidet)

Dabei kann es, wie nun in unserem Fall, durchaus passieren, dass man mehrmals in einer Stadt vorbei kommt – quasi auf Durchreise!

Auf die Frage hin, ob man dabei nicht irgendwie den Mut verliert, manch strapaziösen Tourenabschnitt mehrmals absolvieren zu müssen, entgegnete sie, dass ihre Motivation in der Freude auf das Wiedersehen mit zuvor lieb gewonnenen Menschen zu finden ist. Daher war die Freude ein zweites Mal ins Lollis Homestay zu kommen besonders groß!

Ihr tägliches Budget liegt bei 20€ … für alles was anfällt!!! Da fällt eine anfallende Ersatzreparatur einer gebrochenen Speiche in Höhe von 25€ schon sehr ins Gewicht! Hierfür hilft sie dann aber nach Leibeskräften auch mal aus beim Fensterputzen im Fahrradladen – getreu dem Motto: “Wo ein Wille ist, ist auch ein Weg”

Auf ihrer Reise erlebt sie natürlich viel und lebt dabei frei nach “was auch geschieht hat einen Grund”! Das dachte sie auch, als sie auf einem matschigen Waldweg (geplant war eine Abkürzung) dann doch knöcheltief im Schlamm steckte, nicht weiterkam und umdrehen musste. Als sie dann den regulären Weg nahm, kam sie an einem Hinweisschild vorbei: “Achtung Sprengstoffreste” :)

Die schrecklichsten Streckenabschnitte: Großer Inselberg und Oberhof => jeder der schon einmal sein Rad mit Ballast einen schier endlosen Berg hochschieben musste, kann erahnen, was hier auf sie zukam!

Immerhin hat Ilka nunmehr 11.000km hinter sich und plant das Ende ihrer Tour ca Oktober 2015.

Nun was war eigentlich ihre Tagesaufgabe hier in Dresden? “Gehe zu einer Kirche und überrede den Pfarrer 5x außerplanmäßig die Glocken schlagen zu lassen”
Da dies jedoch gesetzlich verboten ist, ermöglichte der Pfarrer auf die doch kuriose Frage aber immerhin, dass Ilka von Hand die Glocke (und dementsprechend leiser) schlagen durfte!

Dies ist nur eine der vielen Geschichten ihrer Reise!

Wir sind gespannt, ob wir Sie wieder sehen, denn laut den offenen Reisezielen liegt noch einiges hier in der Nähe :)

Play 4 Stay @ Lollis Homestay

Hey folks,

Tonight we were honored to meet and greet an upcoming musician!

She, who doesn’t want to be named :), has been playing the harp for 3 years now and gave us a little show.

Especially during winter when it’s freezing cold outside, there is nothing better to do then snuggling up in a blanket on our couch listing to the harmonic tunes of her harp!

What do you think? Checkout Facebook for the video!

Catch ya soon!

Lollis Homestay wishes you a Happy New Year !!!

2014 has been another exciting year for Lollis Homestay. We made lots of new friends, had exquisite hostel dinners and (on some nights) partied with our guests all night long. :)

But before the recap for this year starts, we want to thank all of our wonderful guests, who have enriched us with their presence for the past year. Our team works hard to create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for you guys. However without you, we wouldn’t be where we’re at today.

So this was 2014 for us…

Because of a busy summer 2013 we had to make a few rennovations. We were also proud to be able to present a new room called Orientalsaal (“Orientroom“).

A great talent from Russia visited Lollis Homestay. Guests and employees got an oil painting of themselves for free!! We thank Gayane D. for making us and our guests such lovely presents.

Every Wednesday and Sunday evening “Chef Björn“ cooks a free veggie dinner for our guests. From “Chilli sin carne“ to “traditional German cuisine newly interpreted“ – this is Haute Cuisine! But for all that (!) Björn sometimes needed a little helper called Pranav. On top of that Pranav always took care of guests when it came to going out and enjoying Dresdens nightlife. We wish Pranav the best of luck with his studies over in gold old Berlin. 😉

Lollis Homestay celebrated its 13-year-anniversary. Before the Hostel moved into the centre of the Neustadt Area 10 years ago, it was located in the Hechtviertel (“Hecht Area“). Henne and Lolli have been running the hostel together for 10 years now!!!

Shortly before the summer season started our lovely receptionist, Elli, decided to become a teacher for our hostel guests. In summer we offered our guests to learn German with Elli every Tuesday @7.30 pm for one hour. Elli taught you how to meet, greet and order everything from ice cream to „Schweinshaxe“ in German. Thank you Elli!

Like every year we had a stage set up for some bands and we were happy to celebrate the “Colourful Republic of the Neustadt“ (in German: Bunte Republik Neustadt). The Bunte Republik Neustadt (literally “Colourful Republic of Neustadt”) was a micronation in parts of the city’s district Dresden-Neustadt from 1990 to 1993. Nowadays every year in June a 3-day cultural festival is celebrated in the Neustadt under the same name. Thanks to all of the helpers, which made this years festival possible – it was a blast!
Here’s next years dates: June 19th, 2015 – June 21st, 2015. Make sure to reserve a room or bed as early as possible. It’s definitely worth it to stay for the whole three days.

We love when you guys write us. In July we received a lovely postcard from Taiwan. This is what we work for (!), so please if you were satisified with our service (or not), write us an review or simply send us a postcard. We’re always interested in your opinions.

Like many, Lollis Homestay could not be spared from the “Ice Bucket Challenge”. Cameraman Marc and Johannes captured the event. Check out the video on our facebook page and to all the ladys out there – the guy is some serious eye candy. 😉 At this point we’re raising awareness for the the disease ALS (amoytrophic lateral sclerosis) and encourage donations to research.

Are you enjoying the music you’re hearing in the common room and reception area? Every receptionist has her or his own favorite genre and artists, which they love to hear while working. So besides taking care of check-ins, check outs, preparing breakfast, entertaining guests or cleaning after them, the receptionists are also Dj-ing and showing you the hottest tracks of the season (or century). 😉

By the way … The city tax introduced to Dresden in February, 2015 is not mandatory anymore. Every guest, who is over 18 years old now safes EUR 1,30 per night again. Yay!

Refugees are welcome & Lollis Homestay supports this.
PEGIDA demonstrations have been taking place in our Old Town (Altstadt) to protest against the “Islamization” of Europe since October, 2014. Their statements towards Islam are strongly directed at extremist groups.

There’s really nothing much left to say. In the last month of the year many came to visit Dresdens lovely christmas market and get a glimpse of Dresdens special christmas spirit . The fireworks on the night of December 31st illuminated the whole city. Right in the middle lies a small hostel, its employees anxiously await you and are happy about every visitor from around the world!

We hope you had a great start into the New Year!
Greetings from Dresden – Lea, Lollis Homestay
