In my previous post with all my 'ahhhh-ing' and sighing and being grateful about my wintery, lazy, easy weekends spent toasty and warm, curled up on the lounge with the kids, I forgot to mention where our photo was taken. Even though I hate being cold and I'm not a big fan of winter, it is nice to get out and go for an invigorating walk around the city in the snow. And as we didn't get that cover of white gleaming, powdery stuff I was hoping for, I thought I take you on a wander through some previous wintery weekend walks around Munich.
The photos above are from a walk along the rive Isar, which basically runs the length of Munich. We followed it from the Deutsches Museum at one end of the city to the 'Englischer Garten' at the other end of the city (below). At this time of year the English Garden becomes a winter wonderland for children to sled in.
Not far from our apartment is Schloss Nymphenburg (the former Summer Palace of the Bavarian royal family) and it's frozen canal. On weekends it gets a little crazy - ice skaters, ice hockey, sledding and a few curling games going on all at once!
So, there you go... a little weekend walk through my wintery patch of the world.
Oh, and I thought I'd change my header pic from that glorious summer in Sydney photo from our trip home a month ago to a more appropriate one for this time of year on this side of the world!! It was time for a change anyway. And you know what they say, change is as good as a holiday! : )
