gone curing.... in Bad Waldsee, finally



Today: the third day for me in Bad Waldsee. Finally i am here, in "Kur" (rehab)
Today: cloudy in the morning, and then an hour of sun - I went for a walk along the lake, and it was so lovely.
Today: finding a good wifi spot
Today: my first aqua walking session
Today: finally back to blogging

Will write a longer post in the next days, but wanted to post some photos after the blog pause. The days before the cure were hectic, filled with things-to-get-done and prepared, with packing and organizing, with all those last-minute-things. And then, on Thursday: driving here, and arriving here.

In May, I was here in Bad Waldsee for an afternoon to get an idea of the place, to see if I like to stay here. "Bad Waldsee" means "Bathtown Forest lake", and that is just what this town is about: thermal water, cure houses, and a lake in the middle of town. Back then, I walked along the lake, and found this spot - and knew I would feel good here:



"The next time I am here, I will have completed all treatments. I will have done it," I thought back then. And now I am here. For real. And it is sunny and beautiful.



I swam in the thermal spa already, and had my first massage - and have met several really nice fellow cure patients already. I even was in the open art group already!

It is so good to be here. And to think: 3 weeks of cure, of having time for me and my body and soul. time to rejuvenate, to be in thermal water, to walk in fresh air, to walk along the lake, to be.

right now, i am simply happy.
