Summer vibes in Munich-Salzburg-Innsbruck

A few glimpses of our trip

Taken from the top of the tower- Alter Peter, Munich

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.

Back to our typical summer this year

We were greeted by a young man of age 93

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 😊.

My vacation

Thankful for nature so close!

One is blessed to have a home.

A home with a garden.

A garden with many beautiful visitors.

Visitors with delightful look.

Look with a soulful voice.

I am thankful for these moments.

Thanks for your patience. I am not able to operate my wordpress site always.

Head full of elsewhere!

Taking a break is easy but getting back to routine is rather difficult. I was away for 3 weeks which was supposed to be my vacation time. It turned out quite different though.

This is what welcomed us on our first day of vacation. This might have happened when we were planning visiting our dream destinations.

My vacation began with deicing of the plane on a beautiful morning.

And ended with a little storm on a gray day. I was tired after a journey of around 32 hrs and did not care about picture.  But in due time will share the pictures from my vacation.

I hope all my fellow bloggers are doing fine and enthusiastic with the new year.

Moreover, thank you for appreciating my pre organised posts. Looking forward to visit your blogs.
