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 I’m actually a Vegetarian even mostly vegan. But vacations are for exceptions. I’m already planning in my head to move to Italy, who else is coming with me? Only lying at the beach, visiting beautiful villages and eating every Italian dish that comes around.
Exactly in this moment Netflix does it again. Well, Netflix does it over and over again. Producing high quality series that keep me watching for hours and not having bought a TV for years.
They produced this show called “Chef’s Table” and it’s a symphony of food pictures, Italian landscape and lifestyle and cheese, cheese cheese. It’s an advanced talk about food. As well as on the level of language as on the level of the images:
”In my heart is Balsamico and vinegar and my muscles are made of parmigiano.”
Have a look for yourself:
The “Sunday-Castle” of this week was the amazing stronghold of Sirmione, Castello Scaligero.
I think Lazise is the coziest city around the lake! So many childhood memories!
The Lake Garda is just one of my favorite spots for vacation. Maybe that’s something I have in common with thousands of Germans.
Well, where to next? Any good suggestions? What are your plans? I’m looking for nice places all over Europe for my upcoming trip!
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 New York discovery-tour started at Bryant Park, where I took this amazing “Kugel-Selfie”in one of the enormous christmas tree balls.
The weather was awesome and one wouldn’t think it’s December in New York. No snow, only warm sunshine.
Of course I needed to see the Central Station and took a Serena-like picture. Of course.
i always dreamt about seeing the Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Center. Well this year’s tree might not be a beauty but I was still amazed by all those people admiring the decoration and waiting for a spot on the ice-ring.
Sun goes down around 5pm these days and we watched it from New Yorks one and only castle. The “Belvedere”on a hill in the Central Park. We also went to the Strawberry Fields and guessed about the spot where John Lennon was shot.
Saturday Night ended with some american foodporn. And it was finally a real Date Night. Without the movie but with dinner and Margaritas.
Sunday morning we had italian coffee at Eataly, just across the Flat Iron Building. It’s an amazing food court full of delicious Italian food.
We made our way through little Italy and China Town. Buying Polaroid films at Urban Outfitters and having lunch at Ramen Takumi, near NYU.
Guess how many taxis hooted at me for standing in the center of the street and taking pictures like this one. People definitely honk more in America then in Berlin. Seems to be a proven fact.
Finally we crossed the Brooklyn Bridge and watched the Skyline.
We ended our tour at the Chelsea Market. They still have their Christmas Decoration on and I couldn”t help myself and spend some time at the Anthropologie store.
