Freezing the moment

For time being
If you dig deeply, you will find that you are not a singular self but that there are many selves, many voices within you. The more conscious you are of those selves and the more you let them find expression through you, the more complete you will be. ~ Frederick Philip Lenz
Picking a couple of images from archives was not an easy task. Also, not picking an image for this post doesn’t mean I am rejecting it. I hope you like these images.
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.
Salzburger Nockerl is a dessert created to honor the three local alpine peaks (Mönchsberg, Kapuzinerberg & Gaisberg).
Summer vibes in Munich-Salzburg-Innsbruck
A few glimpses of our trip
St. Peter’s Church is a Roman Catholic parish church in the inner city of Munich, southern Germany. Its 91-metre tower is commonly known as “Alter Peter”—Old Pete—and is emblematic of Munich. St Peter’s is the oldest recorded parish church in Munich and presumably the originating point for the whole city.
A week ago I had posted “What am I (we) running from“.
We had a seven day trip from 13th to 20th July. We were happy with what we got to see and experience. We didn’t rush to visit more and more places but instead soaked ourselves in summer vibes of these beautiful places.
There was an extreme heat warning when we left Munich, even in Oslo it was 27 degrees but the scale dropped down to 18 when we reached home accompanied with some good rains.
Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world ~ Gustave Flaubert
Surprisingly the owner of the hotel we stayed in Munich greeted us personally one day at breakfast and chated with us for a while, and he even offered beer to us. He is one of the survivors of the Auschwitz concentration camp. Before leaving us he did not forget to ask us to suggest his hotel to others 😊.
What am I (we) running from
We wish to enjoy a couple of real summer days, soak ourselves in early morning sunlight. Looking at our weather reports this may not happen any soon. We do get sunshine which is quite unpredictable and is inadequate.
We have a certain plan for coming days, at least from our side I can say. The situation these days adds some ambiguity to it but so is life. If we are lucky enough, we shall land in a sunny city. We don’t need to worry about the garden as we have some friends in the weather forecast department who have given us a green signal.
I hope to get good internet connection and shall try to update my Instagram page which I am not good at. May be I need some motivation 😀
Be happy and enjoy summer! See you next week.
Double the joy
