Changing environment, learning new language and new culture,being a wife and a mother, living far away from families and friends, I have come to share my views, thoughts, feelings, ideas on so many things that I cherish.

A visit to MONREPOS (Monrepos Palace)

When my daughter's music teacher told us a short story about SEESCHLOSS MONREPOS, we were all excited to visit the place.
Monrepos (German: Seeschloss Monrepos) is a lakeside palace in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Via narrow pedestrian paths, the little palace is connected to the Favorite Palace, formerly used by the royal family of W├╝rttemberg as a hunting lodge, and the Ludwigsburg Palace (Residenzschloss).
It's always fun to discover new places or things to do with the kids since they are easily bored with repeated activities. The Palace is about 5 minutes drive from our house and I didn't know what a fun place it is. It was a beautiful sunny spring Sunday afternoon and the place was almost crowded with visitors. People came for sight seeing, horse riding, boat rides, pick-nicks, wedding ceremony, etc.
Here are some pictures of what we did.

It was along walk from where we parked, we let the kids to ride with their bicycles.

This lake was the highlight for the kids and with did enjoyed some boat rides.

Rent-a-boat

Big sister enjoyed being in front of the boat.

Since I was inside the boat myself, it was easier for me to capture other people in their boats.

Swans are cool, I love them.

Your blog is amazing! Thank you so much for adding me. I too grew up in Africa, specifically Uganda. Although I was born in the US, so I don't qualify as an expat, however I do miss life there and the wonderful values and appreciation one learns coming from such cultures. I'm definitely following you!
