Hello everybody!! Welcome to my favorite day of the week where we get to travel the world along with Unknown Mami via Sundays in my City.
This year, we as a family, have decided to get out of the house and explore new places every sunday, when and as the weather permits. And to help us keep our word, we have been experiencing the best of weather, which according to the Germans is unusual..:) It has gotten warm, the sun shines and there is no snow..:D
So today, we headed to the ruins of Homburg in Gössenheim, a short drive from home. Germany is filled with ruins of castles, big and small. Some are maintained, some not. It is quite expensive to maintain these places and it is a shame to see them crumble down due to lack of maintenance.
These ruins are more than 1000 years old. We timed it well, so that we got to see the ruins against the setting sun. We have a boy in our midst, who loves to dwell on the past. He loves to see the old walls, imagine what it must have been like to live in those times, wonder how people lived....
It made for an interesting outing. Some of the rooms still had their gates locked and the tiles of the floor were in good shape. Maybe, it was where the prisoners were held. Since the ruins were high atop a mountain, it also made for picturesque scenes of nearby villages and meadows.
Did a damsel wait by this window, for her knight in shining armor?? Or a lady for her love?? You can let your imagination run wild and yet, have no answers.
It was a day well spent. Hope you all had a great day too. Don't forget to stop by Unknown Mami and see what the lovely ladies were up to. I promise, you won't be disappointed..:)
