When my mother in law and sis-in law came here in Germany for vacation last year, My hubby and I thought of bringing them in Mainau. It is an island in Lake Constance where it is preserved as a garden Island and a model of environmental practice. It's located in the south shore of Ueberlinger See near the city of Konstanz, Baden Wuerttemberg, Germany. This little island in the heart of Europe never fails to bring us in wonderment. You'll be captivated with the beauteous sight of the lake as we took the boat ride going to the island. It's around 11 A.M and the line going to the entrance was long so we decided to have our lunch first before taking pleasure of seeing the beauty of this mysterious Island. The buzzing bees catches our attention that lead us to find this one.
Gosh! I told to myself, I thank goodness that I wasn't wearing a sweet fruit scented perfume or else these bees will be chasing me. The variety of flowers depends on what season. We went there middle summer so these are the abundant blooms for the season. These big figures form with flowers are all heavenly for me. It really gives you the feeling of delight and awe, how those creative hands of individual who made these lovely flowers and plants more interesting.
The carriage full of tourist added the quality of pleasure brought to our mind and senses. There are also trees featured in different variety. If you're in Europe and your longing for the tropical feel and don't much have the luxury of time to peregrinate in tropical countries, then Mainau will fulfill it. The island has a marvelous butterfly house and made into a tropical environment condition. We were all sweating, as we enjoy the sight of different variety of butterflies and plants. It brought nostalgia to me, I felt like I'm in the Philippines. They also have Palm houses in the island. Amazing right? And if you have young children with you in this journey, the island also offers something for the little ones. The playground.
The feeling of being with nature is so relaxing. The presence of elderly is so visible, it obviously indicates that the place is really a good place to unwind, where there is stress-free and loose environment. I would love to visit back the place.
