Weekly Photo Challenge: Awakening

Brandstetter Cafe
Location: Würzburg, Germany

 
It’s early morning in Würzburg. What’s a better way to start the day than to visit the popular Brandstetter Cafe? The staff still appear relaxed and friendly. More importantly, there’s less crowd giving you time to browse and select among the fresh baked goods on display.

After a light breakfast, you can take some time to explore the city on foot. It’s worth your while. You’ll be impressed by the determined efforts of its citizens (mostly women) to rebuild after 90% of the city was devastated by massive Allied bombing in World War II. As you walk around, you’ll find the buildings of historical importance were accurately and painstakingly reconstructed.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

Regensburg, Germany

Location: Regensburg, Germany
 
When you need to get away, you don’t have to go far. A visit to the local park can provide the break you deserve. Surrounded by trees silently standing guard, it will be a sanctuary. Freed from the noise of city life, it will rejuvenate you and give you peace and let you face the world with a new sense of purpose.

The above picture was taken last November in Regensburg, a college town located about 80 miles from Munich. It was late afternoon and eerie quiet. There was no wind nor chirping of birds. The only sound I could hear were my footsteps on the ground. Did it make me worry of being mugged or robbed especially when I found myself all alone? Nah, not by much. Regensburg is rated as one of the safest places in the world.

 

GREAT streets of silence led away
To neighborhoods of pause;
Here was no notice, no dissent,
No universe, no laws.

By clocks ’t was morning, and for night
The bells at distance called;
But epoch had no basis here,
For period exhaled.

– Emily Dickinson
