Week 35 and counting

0 Permalink

Happy Monday from Malta! Yesterday, Sunday, I flew to Malta to take a few days off. I wish! Honestly, I came here to see my dentist haha :) I had to get a filling fixed and really prefer my dentist here. Also, we have an apartment in Malta which makes everything so much easier. So I am staying here until Wednesday, enjoying the weather and working from home until then.

Enjoying the heat may sound a little exaggerated – it is SO hot here. At night it only goes down to 27°C if you’re lucky and today we have 33°C. I am melting!

the view from our balcony! I’ll never get tired of it!

So I thought I’d give you another heads-up of the week and what I have on my agenda – and take you with during the week of course.

Today/Monday – in Malta. I saw the dentist this morning and now am working from home / our balcony. The view is amazing and even though I’d love to go around or go shopping, my inbox is exploding. So it’s all about work today.
Tuesday – Another day working from the balcony. I also need to shoot something small which I am super excited about and will show you these days on the blog and instagram if all goes well! I may even have time to go to Zara in the evening and check out what’s new in store. I almost never find time to shop in Zurich so here I may find some time. AND, it’s a whole lot cheaper (around 30%).
Wednesday – back to the dentist – getting a second filling re-done so all is set for the future and get my teeth cleaned overall. I’m such a fan of getting my teeth professionally cleaned every few months if possible. Then I will be flying back to Zurich in the early afternoon.
Thursday – Hopefully seeing a dear friend for lunch that I haven’t seen in forever! In the evening I have a business event to attend. Thankfully the title is “Sumer Party” so I am looking forward to catching up with a few people from the industry over a glass of sparkling wine!
Friday – Nothing is planned so far. Yet, if the weather is good I am hoping for a nice lovely dinner somewhere outside with my love. I hate being away from him and cannot wait to seeing him again!

Also: how lovely was this purple sky when I boarded last night in Zurich?! I did contrast the image slightly but it really was beautiful!

Getaway 2.0, Malta

Hello and Goodbye! That seems to my motto on the regular these days. Of course I am not inviting and throwing people out of my life on a constant – not at all to be precise, but it seems to me I leave my home more regularly than usual during the year. I cannot complain though, of course – since seeing family (all living somewhere else) and going abroad for business is something I chose to do and love. I am currently writing this post whilst on the plane from Zurich to à Malta! I am spending the weekend with my beloved mom, sister and my baby (aka dog). My mom came to visit my dad and I in Zurich last weekend for a wedding we were invited to. Oh, it was beautiful – the details so thought out and the whole event so harmonious. My sister stayed in Malta last week and looked over the dog (we still need a dog-sitter there – anyone know one?) and so I am excited to seeing her again. My dad, who would have loved to being there, is currently on a three-week business trip. Yep, even my “smaller family circle” seems to be all over the world at the moment. Trying to get everyyyone together, is actually an impossible task.

We have a big round birthday coming up in December (my uncle is turning 50), where I thought we would all get together. But again, him and his wife live somewhere far off from the rest (even if still in Germany) and most likely not everyone will be able to join. Nevertheless, I will try to incorporate that into my plans very soon to see at least a part of the bigger family again. Speaking of birthdays – my dad will also be turning 50 years young this year (November). Does anyone know what to gift on a round birthday? I’ve always found it hard to find presents for the male counterparts on their birthdays, but round ones, they really stress me out. I’d love to hear any ideas you guys might have!

Now rewinding back to this weekend, my trip will be rather short. I will be leaving Malta again at around 1pm on Monday and really “only” spent the weekend. Weekend plans? Getting my hair done, spending time with the family, cuddling with my dog, working on studies and business – and – swimming with dolphins on Sunday! Yep, you read that right. I never swam with them before, but promised it as a present to my sister’s graduation earlier this year. I am not quite sure if I am excited about it or not – since they are kept in a pool rather than in the open water. I’m sure it will be fun though, so let’s see how it goes and cross your fingers they don’t bite, haha!

With that, I wish you all an amazing weekend to come. Oh, and happy September 1st! xo
