I live right in the center of a medium-sized city and it feels like a vacation to me when I spend two or three days at my parents’ place. They live in the Stuttgart area, close enough to get downtown in a half hour but far enough to be surrounded by nature. Whenever I’m there, I go for endless walks and really enjoy the birds singing, I watch ducks and dragonflies at the creek (while the cows are watching me :-D).

And I still like the city but sometimes I have to flee from the traffic, the noise, the dirt…nature is what refills my batteries!
