Majorca - Calm Balearic Island

21 08 2014

The Balearic Islands are diverse. Beautiful mountain ranges, hidden coves, wide bays - sometimes with wild waves :-)

You can party all day but you can also find calm serene spots for meditation.

Especially in the early hours.

I took these pictures on my morning walk with an iPhone 5s.

Majorca - Wild Balearic Island

18 08 2014

Majorca - located in the Mediterranean Sea - is the largest island of the Balearic archipelago in Spain.

We have been there many times, because it's just a two hour flight from our home and the island is really beautiful for the largest parts.

In old times it was called "Island of Calm" but now many tourists come here. But if you avoid the touristic centers you can still find nice places.

This time we just wanted to swim and relax and stayed in Alcudia.

I was rarely online and just posted a bit on my Instagram.

Usually there are just some gentle waves in Alcudia in the afternoon but last week we had a day where it was windy and the ocean turned wild. 

Our kids - 11 and 14 years old - loved it! 

They are both good swimmers but we stayed close to the shore this afternoon so they could stand all the time.

The pictures were taken with a Nikon COOLPIX AW100.

Attention - it's going to be wet....

Snowy Alps

This weeks theme over @Luzia Pimpinella   is "frosty".

Well - there is no more frost here in northern Germany right now - we have had a pretty mild winter so far and the last days were even warm with up to 10 degrees which is unusual warm for February. 

But I still have plenty of pictures from our frosty winter vacation to show - so, here are two of my favorites.

Happy Day,

Lech Am Arlberg - Winterwonderland

19 12 2013

Hopefully!

This picture is from last year when it snowed early.

This years december is a lot warmer and we are still waiting for snow.

We will again spend a few days after Christmas in this beautiful mountain village in the Austrian alps.

The picture shows my favorite view from the slopes looking down on the village and the Omeshorn mountain.

It's late afternoon and the sunset spreads a few last golden moments. The slopes are quiet.

Everybody went back to the cabins after a day spent outside in the crisp air...

Time to read and play and to look forward to a delicious mountain dinner by the fire. 

So wonderful!
