” What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter.” – Anonymous
Winter has never been my favorite season except that I love to snuggle myself up in a cozy blanket when it’s cold and also flaunt a variety of woolen wear and jackets. This is what I felt as a child when I was growing up in the Northern part of India, where one at least feels cold when it’s Winter, unlike Mumbai where it’s either raining or it’s hot and humid a typical coastal temperature. Staying in Mumbai for a little less than a decade I had almost forgotten, what it meant to feel cold, let alone seeing anything even closer to snow :). Konstanz made the Winters from the fairy tales come alive for me. I felt like I am in a dreamland where the only color is white when it snowed, else an astounding combination of Green, Yellow, Red, and Orange when the leaves left the trees and embraced the soil below. Truly incredible!
Winters at Konstanz see temperatures ranging between -10 to 7 degrees from Nov – March every year. Though all tourist guides would recommend visiting Constance during Summers, yet I would suggest otherwise. So, I have put together a photo essay for you to know and see it for yourself what you may miss if you not here during Winters. These photos are from the place where I stay ( Apartment Hotel, Stenstrasse) and within a radius of few kilometers.
The photo essay is in the reverse order from deep winters to the light when it had just begun.
December 2017- When it snowed deep
November 2017 – The usual life around when it had just begun to snow
November 2017 – Few days were bright and sunny
October 2017 – Beginning of Autumn it was
This is an eternal love story and you will see a lot of such photo stories from my end in the months to come. I can’t resist but boast about being so fortunate to be staying here.
