This morning I left home at an unusually early hour as I had to take my car to the garage to be serviced. It was still dark but the sky bore promises of a sunny day with dirt orange and pink clouds pushing through the darkness.
I was amazed at the heavy traffic and the crowds patiently waiting at the bus stops. It reminded me somewhat of London where you are used to endlessly wait for public transport. As all traffic was inward bound and as my garage is a little bit further away from Basel, I had no problem reaching my destination.
daybreak in an industrial quarter
I used public transport to get back into town, reading the newspaper and meaning to go back to work
Was it the unexpected sunshine or the colours that inspired me to do something different and unexpected?
I got out at the next stop and walked across the Mittlere Rheinbrücke (the oldest bridge in Basel) and enjoyed the lovely sight:
Mittlere Rheinbrücke towards Kleinbasel
There was hardly anybody on the bridge and I felt as if I owned the world. Turning to the right you will see the majestic the Münster (cathedral) in Grossbasel:
What a lovely view! The two steeples are faintly mirrored in the water.
Do you ever do something unexpected and away from your daily routine? Does it inspire you, does it make you feel more alive?
It made me feel vibrantly alive and looking forward to everything this lovely autumn day will bring me!
Wishing you a great day and lots of unexpected things!
