Whats Missing At The Moment?

09 06 2014

NOTHING!!! :-)

We had a long holiday weekend over here in Germany and today is still a free day for many.

But the best part: We have amazing weather right now with temperatures over 30 degree.

Even without a beach it feels very much like summer vacation.

We enjoy the deck in our new apartment - though it's not completely finished yet.

Once it will be all done i will you show you pictures of our outdoor space.

Meanwhile I hope you enjoy some photoblast from the past I shoot on Hawaii:

A quiet early morning from a vacation at Wailea Beach Maui...

Travel Plans 2014

24 03 2014

I have to admit: I am quite exhausted after our recent move.

I can't believe all this stuff we managed to pile up in the last four years after relocating from California.

I gave a lot away before the move but we still have so many boxes left. We already filled again two large storage rooms in the cellar of the new space!

I wouldn't want to go on a vacation right away since there is still so much exciting work to do in the new apartment like choosing lampshades and decorating, but I love to dream up some destinations we could go visit later this year.

I am inspired by other bloggers lists here but with the cost of the move we probably won't do any big overseas trips this year.

Last year around this time we went to the north cost of Germany and visited the island of Sylt.

We had rented a cute little house together with my brother and my sister in law and their Golden Retriever "Chaney"

It was totally fun and we really want to do it again this year. 

HouseTrip for example offers a great selection of vacation rentals worldwide and also rentals at the North Sea for dog owners, because "Chaney" doesn't like to travel too long to a destination. She hates driving the car - even just the three hours from our town up to the cost.

The beaches and waves can be amazing on the north cost of Germany - very inviting for long beach walks.

Fine white sand and beautiful dunes. Lot's of wind and fresh air.

And afterwards a yummy seafood dinner :) 

Fernweh Nordsee

Sylter Stadtgeflüster in Westerland is a great restaurant offering homemade food. The interior is cozy and inviting decorated in Long Island style.

They also offer freshly baked cakes and cupcakes for afternoon tea. Unfortunately I learned about this place after our trip last year, but I heard only good reviews about it.

So, we definitely need to go to this island again!

What about you?

Do you have travel plans for 2014?

Do you like to go really far away or do you like road trips and destinations close to your home?

I would love to hear about your travel plans! 

Happy Monday,

Anette 

P.S. Thanks a lot to HouseTrip for the cooperation in this post.


Favorite Rome Pictures

18 02 2014

Last week we went to Ikea to buy lot's of BESTÅ units for storage.

We choose them with glass doors where you can put a print or photo behind the glass.

My plan is to create a collage or portfolio of projects, travel memories and other sweet moments with these doors.

For example creative projects and inspirational photos for my studio and vegetable pictures from the market for the kitchen...

So I am going through my picture archive to find my top photos.

Two years ago in the end of January we went on a short trip to Rome.

It was quite chilly but beautiful.

I already posted about it here - with lot's of funny latin words in the post!

So these are my favorite Rome pics - I would love to go there again.

Right now we have super mild spring like temperatures here in northern Germany and that gets me into travel mood :)

The Alps In Grey With Touches Of Baby Blue And Lilac

09 01 2014

It's Thurday again - time for BIWYFI!

Todays theme is January Grey and I will show you a few more pictures we took in the Austrian alps.

Not as many as in my last post though :-)

I picked these two pictures to show because of the light and the colors.

They are taken in the late afternoon - the sun sets and the magical light chances every few seconds coloring the snowy mountains baby-blue and lilac under a peachy sky.

I love that time of the day on the slopes because mostly everyone went already home and it is quiet and beautiful again.

Since these pictures were taken on our last day in the alps I will send the first one to Foto der Woche as my favorite pic of the first January week. 

Happy Day,
