Sunrise in Sindelfingen…

31 Aug

…is the best time of the day to squeeze in an outdoor workout- at least when it’s not completely freezing!  Whether it’s running through the gardens or biking up the hill to the tip-top of the city, there’s just something so fascinating to me about that feeling of being ‘alone in the world’ for that hour…with nothing but my thoughts, my music, my breaths (visible with every exhale…yes, it’s still August…) and the sun beginning to peak through the trees…

So I wanted to do a quick post from that perspective…with pictures taken from an early morning bike ride last week.  Granted, some of the time I was actually HOOFIN’ it (ie. burnin’ off that day’s meat and potatoes!), so I didn’t get as well-rounded of a viewpoint as I know you’d have liked, but it’s the best multitasking I could do!

Almost sunrise...

Yep, that's my basket and I love it!

Cutting through the park...

The Germans spend so much money on outdoor spaces for kids...it's fantastic...

I found a shortcut 🙂

My favorite residential street...at the top of the hill, overlooking the city...

A modern twist amidst the antiques...ALL of these houses are gorgeous and on prime real estate!

For Ricky 🙂

The lake...

One of my favorite spots in the park...It's just so random and pretty...I call it my 'Birch Grove' 🙂

SO many wildflowers EVERYWHERE...

Good morning, Sindelfingen 🙂

Coasting down the hill...

So, 6 miles later, I made it back to the apartment and couldn’t wait to tell John about all that I’d found!  He decided we should take the pups and go back that evening so he could see for himself.  Of course, he was just as amazed at my find as I had been…OK, maybe even a little moreso once he saw a random Biergarten and Bocci Ball Court set up smack dab in the middle of the park!  Yes, please!  Thomas, Party of 4, right this way! 🙂

Biergartens like this are a dime a dozen here during the warm months...

Good night, Sindelfingen...

Let's talk about it!
