I’ve been off guard for a while now and I guess I should apologise. It probably also doesn’t help to complain or list the things that are going on right now that are keeping me busy. Yet, I have not forgotten about my readers, nor do I have the intention of stopping any updates anytime soon. Do forgive me though, please, if my updates are not as regular at the moment. Once I have finished my larger projects, and most importantly, finished my masters in a couple of months, I am hoping to dedicate much more of my free time here again.
On another note – I was skimming over Pinterest the other day and fell in love with some of the interior inspired pictures I found. I thought I’d share a few of those with you today to show a sign of life. A combination of these and my own little touch to everything – that would be my dream apartment/home one day. I love pairing the old with the new, having an apartment with that “old” vibe (“Altbauwohnung”), adding new pieces into it, and having a hint of that Scandinavian and Soho Design Interior flowing into the whole thing.
I just absolutely love looking at lifestyle photos and especially at interior stuff. I am even thinking of making my little hobby more realistic and looking into learning more about design on a professional level for the future. Not to stop what I am doing right now; instead – to potentially being able to use my hobby and love for interior (and food – oh jee, now I am starting to get indecisive again) more frequently in the future! What do you think of the inspo photos from Pinterest, any favorites? xo
If there is one thing I never want to give up, it’s travelling to places I’ve never been too. Last weekend my father and I decided to do a roadtrip with the motorcycle, with no definite destination ahead of us. We knew we would start in Zurich, drive towards Innsbruck (Austria), head down to Italy towards the coast and eventually drive back up again- and so we did. After driving over the boarder down to Italy, going over the alps, the landscape got more beautiful with every kilometer we passed. Passing a little town up somewhere in the mountains, out of nowhere we saw an outlet for traditional German clothing. I immediately knew, that if they had a Dirndl (traditional dress you basically need for the Oktoberfest), I had to have one. Guess what? I got one – but that is another story, another post and another time I will report upon that.
Towards the evening we decided to head down to Peschiera del Garda. Now let me tell you – I completely fell in love! This little town all the way down at the south of the lake made me feel like I was in vacation, better yet: in heaven. It felt like I had left all pressure, all worries (not that I have many), all bad thoughts and all stress behind me. I was suddenly fully relaxed and it felt like I had needed it in forever. I was love-struck, to say at the least.
Peschiera del Garda is a relatively small town. We arrived in the evening just when the sun went down and all streetlights were turned on. It was a beautiful view, one that I am missing right this second whilst writing and thinking back to the weekend. Oh, how much I would do to be there again. That evening we also had the most delicious food, ever! You cannot imagine how much meat I ate, what an amazing Rosé I had, what a great experience it was and how little we spent on it. It was a recommendation by the hotel and it was worth every penny we spent. He had told us the place as if it was a secret and it surely was magical. The food was breathtakingly amazing. I will definitely post all about the food next time – trust me, the pictures are making me hungry the minute I looked over them.
You see that little bag further down on the photo? That little piece of paper with the words Gucci on them made me SO happy! I instantly felt like a child being fed with candy. Oh, I am so easily satisfied, it is almost embarrassing. But I did, I got a little something (I’m sure you can all guess what) and had to grin all night. Ever since I bought this beauty, I have been wearing it every single day.
Later that night we decided to up the hill and found an amazing bar that was placed outside. They had great background music on and I can tell you the glasses they served were HUGE. Huge is probably not even the right word, compared to what I am used to from Zurich, they were enormous – one glass surely made me happy and satisfied. Writing to you about the trip makes me almost sad now – I really wish I could go back! – and simultaneously so happy – I feel so blessed I was able to experience that little amazing town. I surely, definitely, to a hundred percent, will go back. The atmosphere was magical, the lake view breath taking, the weather amazing (we had around 29C at midnight) and the Gelato (oh, how I love ice-cream) was to bathe in.
Thinking back, I cannot wait for my next vacation! Until then, I wish you all a great continuing week – hey, it’s almost weekend!
