Falling In Love All Over Again

Yesterday was a magical day. We were struck with some bitter cold that lasted a good two weeks and I think everyone was feeling a bit down from it. It finally warmed up last week and yesterday it warmed all the way up to 60 + degrees (fahrenheit). Holy awesome! The sun was shining, the birds were chirping (really they were, I think they felt it was safe to come out of hiding) and even some bugs decided to make an appearance. I knew this because I had quite a few that landed in my eye. Why do little flies love flying right into your eyeball when your biking is beyond me. I guess I should be thankful it's never bees or dragonflies...I can't stand dragonflies. Anyway, I hadn't taken my bike out since last fall, but it was so nice yesterday I had to get out there. So off I went. I found some more amazing trails in the woods (there are so many, and they all link together, I love it). It was absolutely beautiful biking through the woods. In German style, everyone seemed to be out as well. Yet another thing I love about living here, you'll see a 70 year old lady riding her bike or going for a walk with her cane. You're never too old to get out there and live people! So I rode and rode all over. I found even more biergartens, which all had a good amount of people at them. I think the tally is now 7 that I've found throughout the woods behind our place. It was a fairly hilly run, so I was feeling it afterward in my legs. I think I need to start cycling more! Now I can't wait for another day like that, I think I have what is called Spring Fever. 

Cyclists everywhere

This is what a lot of the homes and buildings look like in southern Germany. The half-timbered style is very German and quite beautiful.

Notice how green this tree is. The woods here stay really green in the winter, which is a stark contrast to my Alaskan winters that I grew up with.

The only downside to where we live. Airport is about 2 miles from our house. When we travel, however, it's pretty awesome.
