Nature & Books

Two months ago I went to the park in our little town. It was a Sunday and the sun came out for the first time. It was so hot and I wanted to try my new camera. So I just walked through the park I usually go jogging and shot some random pics, as always, haha. I needed to finish a boo for the German lessons in school. We had the test about the book and more two weeks ago and we are still waiting to receive the mark. Fingers crossed I’ve learned enough… But anyway I laid down under this blossoming tree put a towel aka my Louis Vuitton scarf on the ground and read. I finished the whole book while I was laying on the ground. And, of course, I got sunburned, haha. One week ago I went to the same spot and I was swimming in the lake with some friends. The meadow I was laying on was sprinkled with blossoming clover. We played Volleyball on the meadow and guess what. Yes, I got a bee sting. And the whole time I’ve been the only one watching out for the bees so I wouldn’t step on them… But what so ever. That’s life, haha. I just could walk in high heels for one week because it hurt too much putting my foot completely on the ground. But it wasn’t that bad because I looove high heels. But it was unpractical from time to time. But it was just so nice being outside and spending some time there. Because of learning, I don’t have much time to step out of the house and have a chance to breathe in fresh air. And reading a book is the perfect occasion to go out and read it while enjoying the sun. And it was also nice because when I walked through the little zoo with goats, Dunkin’s, horses, pigs etc. I was reminded of my childhood. I spent a lot of time going to the park and feed the animals together with my dad. And in fall we always collected hundreds of chestnuts. In the park, it also has a playground with a lot of fun activities to do. Spent a lot of time there too when I was a little cute girl. but it was crazy to see how people or society in general changed. Everyone took a lot of pictures with their phone and of course a lot of selfies included. Especially the blossoming tree was a “the perfect profile picture” hotspot. Nearly everyone who passed by made pictures in front of it. A lot of parents pushed their kids to stand in front of it. But they wanted to play and not smile for the camera. It’s so crazy how obsessive we are with capturing moments rather than really living them and enjoy them to it’s fullest. And I have to admit I count myself as on of those persons. Especially since I’ve started this blog. But still, I don’t have my camera with me everywhere or all the time. It’s nice to capture moments or things like spending time at the park. But you also need to learn to step away from it and don’t get stressed when something beautiful happens and you are not able to capture it.

  29. There is probably nothing I love more than a good book, a comfy chair in the shade and a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
