my way leads me to the largest lied on lake constance, the so called hamlet. it lies on a small headland in the lake. ha. i think it's still too cold to go swimming at this spot right here. it feels like i'm standing in the middle of the lake. on the right, you can see lake you berlington. that's the area where i'm sailing. right behind me, is over the or up a lay confidence. on the other side, you can see myth walk. on this side, you can see the city of constance. well, as my personal highlights in the background, the alps in summer, it is a super crowded here. there is some beating lawn sports facilities, facing islands and much more. it mission is free. it's very quiet here now. perfect

a job in germany and i came with them but couldn't find work with. then i thought i can sail and started looking for those jobs. there were offers from a sailing school on lake constance and one in friends, poor credit. so i thought i'd go for the one here or to say, but why not northern germany bye for me. it was too similar to holland, the temperature, the weather. sure, the sailing would be a bit more active than here. but i enjoyed the landscape and the closeness to the alps. and i also enjoy the villages here on lake constancy. there is no comparison to holland at all on for g life. i once heard that you have to get a sailing license, especially for li constance. even people who already have want him no matter what license you have him, but wife will by because here there are rules which don't exist anywhere else in the distance. you must keep from the shore, how to approach the shore demons and how to drop anchor. and maybe not so much here at lake nibbling in. but towards upper la constance, you get real food and winds,
which come down from the alps. and what might be totally different. here are the storms when a storm approaches, but you often don't see it coming because of the hills here. oh, so you're really taken by surprise. when you get now during the pandemic, which is unfortunately already in a year old. how did it go with sailing? i guess it has decreased, or was it allowed to continue? well, i mean, you're out in the fresh air look. yeah. now as volumes of in a while since we were allowed to do this with this last year, we were only able to start at the end of may or beginning of january on uni. but then so many people came, it was really common asthma looked. this is, but we also noticed during the pandemic, was people rediscovered sailing or discovered. they still had a boat lying in the harbor boat, him awful ega. i forgot my boat can be, i can know exactly so, and they do us doing the pandemic. you saw a lot more boats on the water. no, mom is normally it's pretty full in the summer, but now it was even fuller. ok. we were all booked up to let our school book. thank

a lazy slob who just sat around. but the name actually comes from the water that was constantly lapping against these buildings. of yours because of that. the building was always damp and full of mold, leading the you billing it to say the house had a foul skin or height, thus the name the house some found on pallets. i was from olive beds. in the 20th century, the large from not was built into the lake. not only is it beautiful, it also serves a practical purpose. the sewage that used to drain into the lake and heavily polluted it runs under it. those times are over today, lake constance is known for its clear and clean water. we had into the old town reverting in was once the richest town on lay constance and therefore needed good fortifications,
