Opposites

The size of the supply vessel is 95 meters by 24 meters. Guess the size of the life boat

Everything has its opposite within it. Love can be very destructive if you mishandle it.
Pain can help you find ways to grow and change. Fear can eventually lead you to a path of hope.

A mid week walk

For what it’s worth… it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start over again. ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

Yesterday was my birthday and as a gift from the universe, the sun was shining ☀ . We decided to keep it simple and planned a couple of hours hike with some picnic food. There were lots of butterflies of which some were quite bold. On our way up the top we chatted with an elderly couple (age 75+) with whom we got acquainted during covid-19 lock down in 2020. The gentleman had walking poles but they both were in good shape. Walking on steep trails is not easy for their age. The lady chatted with us and told us about her hospital stay due to some breathing problems she got recently. I am sure there is nothing serious as she is able to hike three times a week. After car parking there is a gravel road (toll road) in steep terrain all the way up to the post. The elevation difference for them was from 260 – 600 m. We need no formula to know how fit they both were.

For Jo’s Monday walk

Munich-Salzburg travel cost was zero

Yes you read it right and no we didn’t travel without tickets. Nine-euro ticket is traveller’s lottery these days in Germany, its one transport ticket that is valid for an entire month. For 9 euros, one can travel unlimited times throughout Germany on local/regional trains/transport services for a whole month in June, July or August. Last Thursday we visited the DB information office at Munich central station to book our tickets for Salzburg on Friday. There was a sign saying “9 euros ticket includes travelling to Salzburg on 2.class on regional trains”. My husband got it confirmed at the ticket counter and got an itinerary. Hurrah!!! One could see an increased demand for certain local/regional trains. Munich-Salzburg is one of the popular routes.
