Finally...weekend time...with sunshine

after two very stressful weeks packed with work, uni and exams, there is finally a weekend of sunshine and some time to go for a walk and let the soul wander...we fought against the icy temperatures with at least three layers of clothing and went up to the castle. although it is just a ten minutes walk up the hill, i go there far too rarely...a habit in need to change...its always somehow magical to look down on the beautiful old town. afterwards, we went for some much needed hot chocolate at wohnküche, a small coffee and tea place owned by a very nice guy who knows the world about tea...he has 140 different teas on the menu and knows a story for every single one of them!

A Saturday stroll through town....

Weekends havent been blessed with sun lately....sun is rather shining during the week when only beams of sunlight make their way up to my workbench at the lab since shutters are "protecting" us from natural sunlight...but such is still waiting for a weekend of sun and crisp winter air (we didnt have much of a winter so far, no snow, no cold, no sun, just clouds and rain)....
So, on a rare saturday when it didnt rain and wasnt too grey to leave the comfy house, we went  out for a stroll around town...and passed by all the nice bookstores....Heidelberg at its best!

.........more book posts to come...waiting for better light in the apartment :-)
