During my visit to Schauffhausen, I got to see the largest waterfall in Europe, Rhinefalls! Historically speaking, Rhinefalls was formed in the last ice age, approximately 132,000 years ago; this is one respected old man.
In summer, the average water flow is 700 m^3 per second. The majesticity of this continuously flowing body of water is cannot be unseen. It is so powerful, roaring, chaotic, and continuously in motion.
But, why not see life as a waterfall?
Life can get hectic sometimes. We're rushing down, getting pulled down, bouncing around with other different materials; problems, obstacles, and everything. After all, you'll find a placid pool of harmony.
"Embrace every second of your days--and every obstacles you encounter. There is a tranquility at the end of every chaotic waterfall"

@ Gerechtigkeitsbrunnen, Römerberg.
This masterpiece by Johann Hocheisen is the oldest fountain in Frankfurt. On its coronation celebration, wine flowed from the breasts of 4 water nymphs on the corners of the statue’s pedestal as a symbol of fertility.
Germany just being Germany.
Apparently, I have been a fan of this little pancakes since I was a kid.
Poffertjes is love. Love is poffertjes.
Things I learned from the windmills:
- Sometimes you're on top. Inevitably, you're going to hit the bottom.
- However, without the lows, there's no way we can appreciate the highs.
- Therefore, make every second counts.
It was a pleasure to actually visit Tintin's hometown! Throughout the series he taught me to always forgive my enemies. His attitude is characterized by inquisitive tendencies and a noble forgiving nature. As he said, "always forgive your enemies--nothing annoys them so much".
So, I made a promise with myself long before I arrived that I would not fall in love with Paris. I would not be a mindless Paris worshipper. I was stronger than that. Now, I’ve finally learned the truth about Paris – Paris is a city worth loving if you look past the surface glitz and find those things that actually give the city its personality (especially the copets, jk). The city transcends cliché, how little of it really falls into that perfectly charming narrative about existential ennui and cheap red wine.
