It's time to get my butt in gear, get out of the couch and go wild...oo..ooh no, do something active!
Thinking of summer, i associate this word with:
**Gelato ice cream (which i am so pleased living in Munich, where gelato places are just everywhere! and it's only 80 cent-1Euro per scoop.)
**Trips to beaches or islands
**Diet ! (crazy but true & sad)
**And a good swim no matter in the sea or swimming pools...
A good swim clears your head. This statement is not overrated. It does clear my head every time i go for a dip.
Like many people (or not?), i dread packing my swimming stuff and dread the moment that i have to make a trip to a pool. But on my way back home it feels like a reward.
Spending just one hour in the water, i get out of the pool feeling so relaxed....
On Wednesday I had companion so my trip to Müllersches Volksbad was much fun.
Believe it or not, it's one of the most beautiful swimming pools in Europe.
But today I had to go swimming alone since G was not feeling so well and generally he is not so keen on swimming in public pools or fresh-water places. He's the ocean's long-lost son! ^^
I packed my stuff (dreaded that moment!) and took off with my bicycle to the outdoor swimming pool Freibad Unterhaching near my place. It was 18 degrees out and windy...yep it was chilly. I so wanted to change my mind but something in me just said..'just go and you'll feel better after that.'
I arrived at the place only to find the great pool all by myself !
Oh was I lucky?!..just me and three lifeguards (why that many!) Okay, there were regular swimmer geeks in the other boring pool, but this big pool with the giant slide was just for me...oh and the warm jacuzzi.
That's my bike..alone but not lonely..ha..ha..
Here I put my 'brave' face and jumped!
Yep, it was cold at first ^^ but it was worth it...
The pool was like my sanctuary, just me and the water...nothing else occupied my mind..
