I always thought that hiking is not only for older people. At least i was not considering it boring as i always liked it. No. I am not old. Coming to Germany made me change my point of view. Everytime i go hiking in some fantastic place where I can have some rest enjoying beautiful weather and the nature the only people i see are retired people. No matter what time it is. No matter how sunny it is. There is no young people. Therefore i cought myself thinking that i might have an old people mentality, since i don’t go to crazy parties anymore. Some things don’t make me laugh anymore, but i would never call myself an old lady. What is that? What young people do? Do they feel obliged to go only to the fancy parties? Hiking is not sexy enough?
When it comes to shopping on Flea Market, you cannot think about practical stuff to buy. Even considering buying furniture turns to be a wish of something beautiful not for casual use.
I never thought Germany is so in need of unnecessary beautiful items to decorate their spacious apartments.
German taste was always for me much more practical and minimalist than the one of other nationalities.
