I don't often take walks. But last night the weather was so nice, the area was so tranquil and it was still early, so I decided to take one. Only around the hotel mind, but still, it was a walk. During my walk I came across several lovely sights and since I had my camera with me, I can show you in the wide wide world as well...
You might be able to understand from the arrows and the numbers that this is sort of a signpost. The funny thing about this sign however was the hidden nature of it. It's clear the information office of Bad Helmstedt wants its guests to be able to find their way around, but you have to find the signs first. And if this sign is anything to go by, I don't hold out much hope for the other 11!
Doesn't this little house just make you think of Hansel and Gretel? Or the little cottage in 'Mandy' by Julie Edwards Andrews. There were only two windows that I could see and both of them quite high up. The house itself was situated about 50 meters from the road and this was the only way to see it.
When I made my move towards the wooded area behind the hotel I saw an awful lot of those piles of firewood. And all of those piles were covered with tarpaulin or plastic. I had never seen them like that before. I mean, I have seen firewood piles before, but always near the sheds of houses, never in the woods they came from!
A little more joy and less battle
A little more goodness and less envy
A little more truth always
And a lot of help in case of danger
A little more 'we' and a little less 'I'
A little more strength and not so weakish
And a lot more flowers during life
They are wasted on the graves
