For me, I'm usually listening to music or watching TV, normally something that doesn't take a lot of concentration, nothing too intense. I like travel shows, especially Rick Steves' Europe, and my mind will virtually visit places that I want to see.
I've been lucky enough to live in Germany and I long to go back to my home-away-from-home, Lahr, Baden-Württemberg. I do plan to go back someday but the hard part is trying to decide what time of year would be the best time to visit: in the late winter for Fasching or springtime for Easter, the beautiful weather in summer, the various festivals in the fall or maybe in December for the Christmas markets? It's difficult to decide on just one time of year.
Of course, I'd have to visit a yarn shop, or perhaps I could see where Opal yarn is dyed (another link here). According to the yarn label it's in Hechingen and a check of the map tells me that it's about 1.5 hours from Lahr.

My mind has taken me to some wonderful places this evening as I sit and knit my latest sock but now it's time to call it a night.
Bis zum nächsten mal und gute nacht.
