Mobile. With Security. 

Tired drizzle. London fog. Coffee. Traffic congestion. Rain. Bacon rolls. Meeting. More tired. 

Hiking 2.6 miles. At airports. In winter gear. With security. More coffee and automatic weapons. Birds, man made. 

 Sunset over Berlin. Touching down. More uniforms. Machine guns and Christmas carols. Taittinger Brut Reserve. Late flight. Turbulence. Espresso. Triple shot night cap.   And landing. At night. Windy. Cold. Warm hugs. Real sleep. Finally. 

Morning, already. At the lake. Quiet. Familiar.   

      Hiking with the rising sun. Rest for the soul.  Nature. Peace.

  1. Love these mindful highs and lows of traveling Helen!
    I was with you along the way – Bacon rolls and champagne are up there for my highs.
    And now let your heart open to it all … ❤️

  2. The dark blue scenery is beautiful but shows the cold and bleakness of the days. Our experience of London in summer last June was not that that different on several days. May you find peace and serenity of home. Blessings Tiny!

  3. Rest for the soul sounds nice. Nature-peace…perfect. Thank you doesn’t seem to cover how thankful I am for you always uplifting my spirit. You have indeed saved me this year! 🙂

    1. Thanks Koko for your very kind comment. I look for peace and serenity for myself in nature, and often share what I see and experience. I am back home now and wish you a peaceful weekend ❤ 🙂

  4. Coffee and champagne – the two things that make the hike around airport terminals, getting from one side to another then through security – all the more bearable. Wishing you safe travels, more delightful scenery and happy memories! 🙂

    1. Thank you Joanne! Yes, one needs something to make travel more bearable 😉 I had a wonderful time for the last few days with my dad and my sister, who was also visiting him at the same time.

    1. The security was more visible than ever around the airports this time…but it was all worth it 🙂 The hikes around the lake were relaxing and great in that cooler weather.

    1. Thank you, Randall. The travel experience was a little different this time, lots of visible readiness….but it was all worth it. The warmth of home and familiar surroundings is soothing, as you know. These were iPhone photos as I only had and LTE connection from the country, but now looking at my other photos make me want to turn around and go back 🙂

  5. What a beautiful morning at your lake! Machine guns and Christmas carols, unfortunately a stark reality in our world. (When I left Greece in 1974 there were tanks surrounding the airport.) Happy to know you made it safely to Finland and found some rest and peace.

    1. Everything and everybody was an a high alert around the airports in Europe, and this is probably what we have to learn to live with. But once I got to my final destination at my dads, I felt it was all worth the trouble. Now safely back home in FL, and grateful for a wonderful trip.

    1. Thank you, dear Doda! I am happy you enjoyed this post although it was a bit different. As I didn’t have internet connection in the country at my dad’s, I did a mobile posting for the first time from my iPhone 🙂 It is always relaxing and wonderful to visit my childhood home at the lake. Take care! Hugs, Tiny XX
