CornerView – close by

Château Chenonceaux/France

Close by Tours
is Château Chenonceaux,
which we visited together with Elsa and her lovely daughter.
France is in Germany known for its wonderful castles
(and its delicious wine and good food and much more … ;)).
In the Loire region and its tributaries there are many castles,
the Château Chenonceaux was one of the most beautiful that I saw so far.

A moated castle built over the River Cher.
The castle appears playful with its turrets and balconies and spoil.
Inside the rooms thrilled me well-preserved,
the colorful beds and wallpapers
(wallpapers are indeed an art in itself),
the kitchen and the many staircases and stairs.

The castle belonged to a beautiful garden
with rose bushes and fountains,
benches for resting and elegant cut trees.

CornerView – in the distance

Würzburg/Germany

You do not need into the distance,
if you want a short break from everyday life.

Last week we had the theme of travel, and I showed you pictures of our France vacation.
Although France is a neighboring country,
but France is a big country,
and Tours was 1200 km away.

A few weeks ago we visited a friend, but she lives only 2 hours and 230 miles away.
Although we did not travel far, and the visit lasted only three days,
we felt like being on holiday.
It was wonderfully relaxing
and a trip away from it all.

We have considered not only the wine region, but also the city of Würzburg.
A nice town for strolling and shopping,
eating ice cream and
resting on the banks of the river Main.

Do you know Orlando Bloom and Christoph Waltz?
Both were already in the city and there have jointly produced a film.
“The Three Musketeers” from the year 2011.
(In the pictures 7 + 8 is a part, where the movie was filmed).

CornerView – travel

Tours/France

Visiting foreign countries and foreign cities is always an adventure,
especially if you do not understand the language.
It a great pleasure to discover new:
drink and eat,
people and buildings,
and to learn for life.

Travelling is something very fulfilling.

Travel becomes something more special when you visit friends
and they show their own country.
It again gets a little more insight than you would only exclusively as a tourist.

Last summer we visited Elsa and her family.
It was an adventure for us, and it was definitely like coming home.

CornerView – Renewal

I have read a lot the last ten years.
Sometimes almost 60 books a year. My shelf had to always be filled with new material,
I was able to walk past any bookstore without a new book to buy.
My SUB – stack of unread books – grew and grew.

Then, from one day to the other I had no desire to read,
I read hardly, could not concentrate on a book,
and each book was boring after the first few pages.

My diagnosis: a dose too much about what is read .

Last year I took a break , my love of reading regenerate.
And this year I have decided to turn my love of reading again,
to renewed.

Not so many books … there are only a small pocket of unread books and not a whole shelf more,
and also on my e-reader store only a few books waiting to be read.
Just my wish list at amazon is not shrunk.
The persists and grows … because it could be yes … one day.
Who knows?
