From Autumn to Winter in Leipzig


So for the last few months I have been living in Leipzig, Germany. I must say this is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. You might ask how so? Well thank you for asking. Firstly it is situated near Halle, Dresden and Berlin is not too far either. A few hours drive and you are in Prague, Czech Republic for the weekend.

Secondly there are so many parks in Leipzig it is crazy. And now that the Spring is almost here, well let us just say that the air smells like Bärlauch and the parks are filled with people sun bathing or grilling.

Thirdly it is bicycle friendly, the amount of bicycles in this city is astounding from the classic DDR bicycles to some of the more modern two wheeler Rennräder. On a afternoon excursion through the Clara Zetkin Park all you see are bicycles, roller skates and skateboards on the road. The upside to this, is that the people are relatively friendly too.

Fourthly never have I seen so many people that jog in one city, and it is from all demographics age wise.

Oh did I mention the cost of living is very student friendly? Yes i said it I am cheap at times thus a bargain is always welcomed.

Below are some pictures that I have taken over the past few months when I was getting my Dora on (get it? No! darn-it)

BTW: The Annual Leipzig Marathon with be taking place on the 13th of April 2014 and yours truly will take part in it :)

If you wish to use any of the pictures below please contact me.

Autumn silence


Berries of the winter

Rampage of the force

I see you come and play...

life and death



Sunday calm

The calm

The dead forest

The last leafs

the lonely bench

The winter is coming

under the calm trouble brews...
