A day out works wonders – like a mini holiday.
You come back refreshed and relaxed.
I tried it for you to give you experienced advice.
We went for one day and night to Cambridge, the famous University town.
Cambridge is a city on the River Cam in eastern England, home to the prestigious University of Cambridge, dating to 1209. University colleges include King’s, famed for its choir and towering Gothic chapel, as well as Trinity, founded by Henry VIII, and St John’s, with its 16th-century Great Gate. University museums have exhibits on archaeology and anthropology, polar exploration, the history of science and zoology.
Walking along the river Cam are many bridges- hence the name Cambridge.
We came along punters and we signed up for some punting.
What an amazing experience, what fun!
‘Concussion’ Bridge (low)
Bridge of Sighs
The Sky was blue,
the weather was hot,
a real mini holiday!
Go for a mini holiday,
do something different at the spur of the moment,
enjoy every moment
and have fun.
You feel refreshed, relaxed,
ready for the new week!
There is a religious catholic holiday in Germany called Fronleichnam
In English it is called Corpus Christi.
I was fortunate to witness it on Thursday, while I visited my mum.
Custom is that people make flower carpets where the procession walks along.
They are made out of leaves, flowers and petals of different colours.
I saw the fresh carpets in the morning, and they were so beautiful.
Please peruse through the slideshow:
We saw the procession coming from the church.
The priest read from the bible and then they
continued to the town center.
It was lovely to watch in beautiful sunshine.
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….
yes, I did go deeper and swam, it was so refreshing.
What a view of the blue sky …… under the shade of a tree.
The flowers with all the different vibrant colours always bring a spectacular show.
I also have learnt how to make the best latte or cappuccino, with frothy milk.
Goes really well with a slice of Black Forest Gateau.
Life is good!
Enjoy every moment!
You all know me as the bear who went to Spain last year to meet Manny from California. Well, Manny has run away to China, hope he enjoys it.
I had a lovely holiday here in London with my mum and her sister. I saw many places I have never seen before. I was so lucky and happy that I could go with them.
First we went to Chislehurst Cave that is where that photo was taken and I didn’t remember.
A man made cave from the Saxons then the Romans extended it for finding flint and the it was used in the 2nd World War for 50 000 people. It was rather cold and so many ways you could easily get lost so we had to follow the guide with the lamp as there was no light.
She did say “every last Thursday of the month they look for lost tourists”, but I didn’t want to stay that long…..
Then we had a picnic in a park just in time as the heaven opened with lightning and thunder.
We visited Danson House which was a Georgian house and had a Victorian kitchen where I had some fun…. as you can see:
Well I was allowed to go and sit anywhere yay!
After that my mum went with her visitors to Buckingham Palace. I wasn’t allowed in there…. it was rather posh my mum said and she thoroughly enjoyed it ( specially the cake with the crown) , she brought some pictures back to show us.
Well enough for today…. I hope you enjoyed the little tour as much as I enjoyed all the travels.
Soon more from me!
See you soon!
Finally holidays are starting for me.
I wish all my blogging friends a beautiful summer/winter and relaxing vacation.
Even if you don’t go travelling, enjoy a peaceful time wherever you are!
Even if it is on your own branch! 🙂
I have a couple of outings planned and hope to be able to share it with you during Summer.
Never forget that I hold you all
very dear to my heart.
Sending you many hugs and love
