I was lucky to spend the last weekend at Lago di Garda, in Italy. The weather was perfectly sunny most of the time and I discovered a perfect Sea Food restaurant in the beautiful city of Salo. Since then I’m craving for Sea Food although… Read More
Arriving in Bangkok is one of the best feelings. This vibrant city offers so much to see and to do. But first you need to find a place to stay…
Maybe your toes are as cold as mine these days. The season of Karneval is over for this year here in Germany and everyone is finally starting with their new years resolutions. Somehow this time of the year is my absolute favorite. Winter is still lingering over the word but fresh cut flowers, melting snow and some glimpse of sunshine are already marking the beginning of spring. “Aschermittwoch”, “Askonsdag” might as well be one of my most loved days of the year because it’s such a quiet day after all the celebrations, the dancing and loud music playing everywhere. People are getting a little more serious again.
Today we’ll be eating some fish and vegetables again – the start into the fasting period before Easter.
I hope some of you could enjoy some free days and the celebrations on the weekend!
Because it’s still so cold outside (at least for southern-Germany) I thought about a trip I took when I was near Washington earlier this year. I went to see the “Potomac-Falls” a beautiful wild running river just so close to the capital. It was freezing and I couldn’t even feel my feet anymore..but the view! Such a beautiful place.
The admission to the Falls is free during the winter month and first I thought we would be the only ones visiting the reservoir because of the cold. But actually some people use this place for walking their dog or even for a run.
The way to the falls is made of wooden bridges so it’s more of a walk then a hike.
How many water is flowing through this river in a minute? Being from Europe it was fantastic to see that this river could just go wild and free without being disturbed by any artificial riverbed.
Ice on the water. I think those lakes must be frozen by now as there are around -24 degrees in this area now.
I’ll spend the next days and NYE in New York. Time to get a closer look at the city. I’ve already seen Ground Zero and the Statue of Liberty, so we had time to walk around and just to stop wherever we wanted to. The… Read More
Keith Richards celebrated his 71 birthday yesterday. Well I’m not sure if be celebrated, but we spend his jubilee having a late breakfast, walking downtown, visiting the record store and talking for hours in a small coffee house full of books and the smell of… Read More
I’m so European. That’s what strikes me the first time in America. Especially when it comes to plastic bags. Switching off my ecological consciousness for the next three weeks seems like the best thing to do 😀 The cashier at Giants looked like I was… Read More
