Germany Part 4
Here is a little peek into our friends beautiful flat in Munich. They were so kind to let us stay there after they left for their honeymoon. If apartments and flats looked like this in our area, I would chuck everything in a second and downsize to fit into this lovely space. Everything is thoughtfully laid out and efficient. I love how they decorated it as well, and it really reflects their personalities. The building was built in 1910. I loved, loved the stairs! The old wood steps have that wonderful sound to them when you walk up them. You can just imagine all the history and the people that would have walked up and down those steps.
While living in Europe, it was always so fun for me to see how architecture changed as you crossed borders into other countries, or within the country itself, because of many influences from other cultures. I really also loved how light filled it was and the two balconies that it had on both ends. Their neighborhood is really nice and quiet, and you would never know you were in a bigger city.
Many thanks again for letting us stay there Hans-Gerd and Marion, can't wait until we get together again!
On another note....It is hotter than hades over here and my energy level is very low. I can't seem to motivate to finish anything for the shop, because I start to move around and get so hot and annoyed, even though the AC is on! Every summer it's like this for me, no matter how I try and gear up for it. If and when we get a break in the heat, I sure hope I can get some more things done, because it's making me a bit sad to keep walking by my work space with no motivation to go in there to work!
It's hot the minute I get up, so it isn't even like you can start early and get things done before it gets hot! Anyone else out there hating the dog days of summer? Sometimes I feel like I'm alone in my loathing of summer :( Hope you enjoyed a virtual trip to Germany!
Stay cool, if you are in the heat, and if you are living in a cool spot...lucky you!
