day two. the snow is melting, but it’s still there.
there are certain things you love. one would be wooden anything. especially dining tables. the second would be old anything. especially old train timetables. a third would be pepper grinders. not especially ones that are battery powered and light up… but they are fun and did result in you peppering your food more than normal. the fourth you suppose would be simple spaces with striking objects.
actually, this is your favorite thing about fall. not the reds and oranges. not the crunching of the leaves. not the warm scarves around your neck. but when you find a tree that has intense yellow leaves on a day when the sky is an deep blue. complementary colors work!
you’re headed back in time! an outdoor museum of historical german farms and houses. collected from all over germany and resettled in their permanent home called freilichtmuseum glentleiten. what a mouthful.
they’ve not only preserved the different types of houses, but also reconstructed the gardens of the times. for example, potatoes pop up in the gardens after the discovery in the america. fun to see the historical changes of what people used to grow to eat.
you’re not sure if it’s luck or fate or something else that has given you such nice weather in bavaria. because right before you arrived, it was nothing but rain and gray. and so far, you’ve yet to see any hint of gloom.
and that ends your short visit to bavaria. because the next day you’re off to lower saxony.
