My special walk

Standard

I heard from Steffi that WordPress is doing this special walk wwwp5k .

A 5k run/walk is approximately 3.1 miles long. That is roughly equal to:

  • Twelve laps around a track.

  • Approximately 6,000-7,500 steps.

  • Approximately 50-60 minutes of brisk walking.

It was any time between Monday, September 19th to Sunday, September 25th, lace up your running/walking/hiking/hopping shoes and join us for the 5k blogged about around the world!

 I participated and here is my post

I made it a mindful walk on my own.

My impressions from my walk:

and now for the count:

That was a lovely mindful walk,

Why not try a mindful walk yourself,

being fully present,

notice the beauty around you,

enjoy every step you do,

… and you don’t even notice how far you go!

 

 

Holiday time

Standard

In August I went on holiday to different places for short periods.

( Mallorca- Spain and Germany)

In Mallorca the palm trees were my favourite, ( see here)

In Germany the lakes for swimming were super.

This is the dress I bought in Mallorca.

With Spanish temperatures in Bavaria I could wear it again.

Here is the proof….. I went into this lake too….

What a view of the blue sky …… under the shade of a tree.

Olympic Park Inspiration

Standard

As the weather is so nice I am lately only using my bicycle to get around.

Also I do trips to the Olympic park often, as it is so beautiful and relaxing.

Here some pictures from a piece of meadow land

with plants and flowers which were planted to attract many bees and mini beasts.

It is great to hear the flying and buzzing sounds from the meadow.

Enjoy!

Flowers are our greatest silent friends.

Flowers are the music of the ground,

from Earth’s lips spoken without sound.

Peaceful walk

Standard

I enjoyed a peaceful walk to a clothes shop the other day. Next to the shop was a church I always liked and it had open day so I went in. It also has beautiful church yard with wild flowers, old gravestones and plaques – like a trail – explaining some of the features, like the mini beasts there, birds, and come special trees.

I did buy some nice summer trousers – no picture 🙂

but here are my pictures from the church yard.

I am sharing the beauty and calmness with you!
