I love adventure and being on a quest, part of the fun is enjoying the journey not just reaching the destination or goal.
I am currently visiting a friend in Germany. She is still working so I have a couple of days to entertain myself during the day. Yesterday, I decided to go to Ratzeburg, where I have been before and know how to get there using the local bus system, or thought I did.
I duly caught the right bus, and knew I needed to change and transfer to a different bus in the next village. However, my bus driver decided I needed to learn a different way to get to my destination. At first as he drove off, not letting me off the bus where I needed to change I was concerned. Then, I decided this bus goes to another small local town and most likely there will be another bus to where I want to go. As I have no agenda, I can relax and enjoy the ride and the views, so just chill. Which is what I did.
I got to enjoy a walk around Moln, the town where the bus went as I had time before my "new" bus left for Ratzeburg. I realized having visited here before just how nice it is and that it is probably worth coming back to enjoy again. I got to my original destination at a perfect time to have a coffee and a cake, before wandering around town and finding a present for my hostess and visiting a small museum dedicated to the work of A Paul Weber a lithographer who lived nearby. It was very entertaining to see the width and breadth of his work, even though some of it was used against British Imperialism.
Then, I realized, as it was a beautiful day, clear skies and a decent temperature, with little wind I also had time to walk around one of the lakes or "Sees". Photo above. As I walked I enjoyed seeing the wildlife, see the pair of Swans below and thinking this may be where I could end up living, or nearby here and enjoy this any time. I also realized part of the route was on the Scandanavian Camino Route to Santiago de Compostella and is marked as so. I walked the very short Portugues Camino 532 miles, comparatively to the Scandanavian Camino route which I have no idea of its legth and it all depends on where you start from as well, but it will be more than 4,000 kilometers.
I enjoyed my walk, and realizing there are many ways to get to your destination and part of the fun is to enjoy the journey as well. A good thought to carry through life when detours get thrown into your path. Relating this back to real estate, sometimes that house you have set your heart on is not necessarily the right one and a better one will come along, just enjoy the journey and see where you end up, it might be a better more fun place than where you thought you were going.
