Enjoying the sunshine at the Isar riverbanks

After a miserable week of cold and sleet this morning broke with bright sunshine. Eager to top-up my vitamin-D-storage, I took the bus to the river Isar just after breakfast and got off at the Deutsches Museum.


Then I turned back and walked along the riverbank towards home enjoying the sun on my nose.

I find walking very meditative and enjoy people-watching.

About 2/3rds of the way I decided to grab a coffee and mineralwater to rehydrate at "Zimt".
It was a bit nippy but wrapped up warmly I enjoyed a peaceful half hour breathing.

Then I discovered this veteran pleasure boat, the "MS Utting" from a Bavarian lake which is currently being remodeled into a party venue. I can't wait for it to open.

Forty and fabulous

It has been a bit quiet in the wonky world. Last week I've celebrated my 40th and I must say it feels pretty awesome. Especially when you don't look like it and receive lots of compliments.

Luckily I was able to celebrate in style and book a small bar in my district Sendling, called "Stenz".

 It is the perfect size, offers amazing catering, friendly staff and a great atmosphere.


This whole year so far has a feeling of change! Is this my first mid-life-crisis?

I have signed up for art classes, decided to improve my swimming technique with lessons and so on. 

So, granted, a bit late in the year but hey, I proclaim my motto: Carpe diem and bring on the next forty years! Rock on!
