Germany: Tiny Village

AimsPhotography_Germany_Travel_Photographer_Art_Nature.photos-3Another peak at a piece of Germany, this time from higher perspective.

I love this picture the more I look at it (which doesn’t happen to me very often!) If I think about it and release my imagination… this picture becomes a story, the tiny village the setting. The story of a quaint village along the river and the unique people who live there. Or perhaps a quiet unsuspecting place for a hero to hide. Maybe the mansion is soaked in mystery, of hidden secrets and long forgotten passageways.

So take a moment and sit back; let your imagination go, allow the picture tell you a story of it’s own…the possibilities are endless!

Did the picture inspire you? I’d love to hear what your imagination came up with!

Remmy: Germany Pt.1

I must be getting better with remembering to take pictures of Remmy when I travel because I have enough to split “Germany” into two posts. 🙂 The above picture is Remmy’s first picture in Germany, he’s sitting on top of my suitcase in the Frankfurt airport. (I traveled to Germany in Aug./Sept. 2011).

On the Rhine River.

At the Deutsches Eck, in Koblenz where the Moselle and Rhine River’s meet.

Still the at the Deutsches Eck.  With statue of the German Emperor, William 1 (William the Great) in the backround.

Driving in Europe… enough said. 😛

In Autostadt, the Volkswagen Plant in Wolfsburg, Germany. One of the famous VW towers in the backround.

When your last name is a German word… it’s amusing to see it on a bottle of shampoo… 100% Glanz, I think yes!

One of the warmer days we were there, we went to (their version) of the beach. Remmy came too. 🙂

Next week, Remmy in Berlin.

Between Good Friday and Easter Sunday…

Whew…! It’s nice to take a breath in the middle of a busy long weekend.  Today might be a little more of a “wordy” post…just sayin’. 🙂

It’s gorgeous outside today…a sunglasses and bright smiles kind of day, warm enough to leave my jacket at home.  There are pros and cons about part timing two cities…today for example.  I’m missing out on the first paintball game of the season. 😦  But, one of my favourite coffee shops is in walking distance from where we live here.  I took advantage of the sunshine and took a walk.  I love sitting in the corners of coffee shops and observing etc. especially when I get a seat on a comfy couch, like I did today!  This coffee shop is adorable!  It used to be a house, and the owners transformed it into a little coffee shop.  There are vintage-ish knickknacks, black and white photographs on the walls, a basement, and porch (and free wi-fi! Yay!) It’s a cozy little place and I come here often. 🙂 It’s here that I, I mean my sister, discovered a mango tea latte with a shot of vanilla…wow!

The one sentence that’s been going through my mind over and over this Easter is:

“He bore the wrath, I know the grace”.

Cross in the Berlin Wall.

That pretty much sums up my thoughts on Easter in one sentence.  Words can never describe how thankful I am, and how much it means to me.

Saturdays are for unexpected plans, like today when my friend and I went out for pochos… I’m not one of those people who takes pictures of food (yet!) so I didn’t.  But if you’re ever in the Okanagan Valley make sure you find a Kelly Os and have some; SO yummy…!!!  You kind of have to eat them to believe how incredibly awesome they are (think cheesy fries with a honey mustard dip…and BACON!) 😀

Hope you all had as much sunshine as I did this Easter!
