I’m back from my trip to Germany and I am also back to writing on the blog (I’m sorry for my absence)
I went to Germany to spend some quality time with my family.
My mum and most of my relatives live in Germany….I’m the only one living in Vienna (boohoo..poor me haha)
It’s that time of the year again – we’re just a few short weeks away from Christmas and the cheer is overflowing wherever you go
There could be no better place to get into the seasonal spirit than Vienna and its magical Christmas markets.
On sundays,I love to indulge myself in gingerbread,toasted almonds,sweet chesnuts and last but not least…in APPLE PUNCH at one of my favourite Adventmarkets in Vienna.
We covered a lot of ground in a week on our road trip to Ireland….moving a bit too quickly for our taste.
Planning a road trip is quite easy but estimating the amount of time it actually takes between the destinations is quite hard,because you don’t really calculate the incorporating time to get lost and make random stops or the tiny roads which make you think you’re going to die if you speed up.
The navigator was of no use as we drove on the small country lanes in Northern Ireland,looking for the signs for The Dark Hedges.
“It must be there!” was my remark as in the distance I saw the tall tree tops stretching high above anything in the near surroundings. And still, we almost missed the turn to this small lane, visited by many, but still delightfully non-touristy in the way we were left feeling as we had discovered this special place.
I remember when I was in primary school and we had to collect beautiful leaves and try to paint them in drawing class.
I remember the cold air & the plenty of possibilities…I couldn’t decide which one was prettier so I used to drive my grandma nuts cuz I didn’t want to go home for hours…
