Days out for me (and the family) does not always mean traveling far away or to somewhere adrenaline packed, often a simple picnic to the lake or a trip to the next town can be just as interesting, discovering the history or just walking through the old streets rather than the shopping centre – a detour from the usual route is my favourite way to explore, taking inspiration from the journey.
Think as if you are on holiday, even though it is only for a few hours.
There is no bad weather! When I’m having a break from work and have paid for a long earned vacation the weather doesn´t stop me, same for a day out, grab the wellies, hats and gloves and venture out, with the reward of a hot chocolate waiting at some small local café.
Act like a tourist! Even if it is your local area, buy someone a gift, hunt out a postcard, you might find something new n the process.
Take a different perspective! Walk a different way, let the kids take the lead or just sit and watch the world pass by, enjoy the time. Grab a camera, pen and paper, write, draw, explore-
Landshut is a beautiful charming city straddling the river Isar in Bavaria. We explored along the water edge and through some of the old cobbled streets. We will be back for more.
