Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
Starnberg See is quite famous in Germany and very close to Munich. Hence, in my third visit, I made sure that I spent a long weekend here before I went home to Singapore.
I was very fortunate that the Airbnb I found was quite the lovely place: its garden opens up to the nearby park, and it was a few minutes’ walk to the harbour where I could take the ship that will bring me to the other nearby lakes.
I only rented a room, and I spent a great deal of time reading and writing in the garden.
I mean, how can I not? My host also provided a sumptuous breakfast which I devoured outdoors, because I can not get enough of her garden.
Everything was perfect. I also took long walks around the area, and feasted my eyes on these:
“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”
― Gustave Flaubert
I naturally took this ship to see the other famous lakes in the area.
“See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask for no guarantees, ask for no security.”
― Ray Bradbury,
