[Photo Journal] Golden Carriages At Marstallmuseum

Marstallmuseum at Nymphenburg Palace in Munich, Germany.


Myra here.

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.

Golden Carriages At Marstallmuseum

The Marstallmuseum is found at the Nymphenburg Palace (which I have featured several times over the past year or so). The Marstallmuseum is highly specialized as it is home to royal carriages, carousels, sledges as you can see below. Enjoy!

I always hoped that after the prince found Cinderella and they rode away in their magnificent carriage, after a few miles she turned to him and said, “Could you drop me off down the road please? Now that I’ve finally escaped my life of horrific abuse, I’d like to see something of the world, you know?… I’ll catch back up with you later, Prince, once I’ve found my own way.” 
― Rachel Cohn, Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares

“A palm-leaf carriage should move slowly, or else it loses its dignity.” 
― Sei Shōnagon, The Pillow Book

“A swift carriage, of a dark night, rattling with four horses over roads that one can’t see–that’s my idea of happiness.”
― Henry James, The Portrait of a Lady

“Why doesn’t Santa just park the god-damn sleigh in the driveway like a normal guest? (Your Temporary Santa)” 
― David Levithan, My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories
“Horses make a landscape look beautiful.” 
― Alice Walker

“When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ” 
― William Shakespeare, Henry V

“Most horses don’t walk backwards voluntarily, because what they can’t see doesn’t exist.” 
― Terry Pratchett, Soul Music

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
