I might just go ahead and say, I think summer is finally here. The anticipation for this season and contentment feels nearly tangible. Never had I thought that I would equally enjoy summers far from the Mediterranian Sea.
On summer afternoons, we enjoy city strolls either on foot or by bike. Streets and parks are usually filled with people relaxing on the grass or drinking beers in outdoor cafes and bars.
Catching up with friends. Although not often enough, as in summers I always have more work compared to winter.
Picnic in the city parks has to be my favorite activity of summer in Germany. We usually bring some fruit and snacks with us. I sunbath and read while M. is struggles for balance on his slackline. Heavenly time!
We do have swimmable lakes, luckily in our region. Oh, I have to tell you about the first time I set my foot on a lake here in Germany. Little did I know about the yike, soft ground. It had me reminiscing of frog hunting in the natural pools of my village.
The picture below represents some of the best evenings I’ve had in Erlangen. When the city is quiescent and the working day has ended. Sitting in our favorite cafe, catching up with a glass of cooled Aperol in hand.

Can’t wait to show you some pictures from the upcoming summer days.
How do you plan to enjoy the summer season? Do you live in a city or country side?
Do not tell me you live close to the sea, I will be extremely jealous!
