25,000 steps through Dusseldorf

The cold wind blows across my face as I watch couples stroll hand in hand, people riding their bikes and kids on their skateboards along the Promenade of River Rhine in Dusseldorf.

I feel content having stepped out of my comfort zone by taking public transport and asking strangers for directions and even striking a conversation with people who were from US.

My first stop is the Rhine Tower, the tallest building in Dusseldorf standing at 789 feet, after which I walk the cobblestone alleyways which are dotted by so many beautiful old buildings, churches and statues across the city.

Here are some pictures I captured during my 25,000 steps or 9 miles walking through the city of  Dusseldorf.

About my random musings

I am originally from South East Asia and I moved to the US about 15 years ago to follow my heart. My heart has since been broken a few times, but I continue to be on journey of trying to mend it. I could talk about running, baking or writing in a small crowd, but put me in a room full of strangers and I will be the one standing in a corner people watching. When I am not writing or running, I would be in my kitchen, flour strewn all over the kitchen counters, music playing in the background and me just rolling and folding dough, excited about what my creation will turn out to be. Besides that I love passionately, when I love, I give it my all, not always a good thing, but that is who I am. I jump both feet in and sometimes I come out with regrets but having learnt a lesson. I believe everything happens for a reason and this is my place to share bits and pieces of my life, my adventures and sometimes misadventures. Hope you enjoy reading my stories as much I enjoy sharing them with you.
