New York – the most famous city in the whole world. There’s a good reason, why it’s called “the city that never sleeps”. There always something you can do by day or at night, and that’s why it’s impossible to see everything in a week. I had the opportunity to spend 3 weeks in New York, so I had enough time to see almost everything I had on my bucket list (almost everything). Based on this, I’ve compiled a list of the best things to do if you’re spending 7 days in New York City.
After quite a long time (5 years more precisely) I was finally back to my beloved Berlin. This time, however, it was not a romantic trip with my husband, but rather an adventurous one with Bombay Sapphire, the sublime premium-gin. I was extremely happy to be one of the few Austrian bloggers to attend the event. I was even more happy and excited when I got to know what kind of event it was going to be – a virtual round-the-world journey of the senses under the name “The Grand Journey”; A journey that was going to take me from Marocco via Java to China with many stopovers. The Grand Journey is an international creative project that takes place in 6 European cities where the 10 botanicals, that means the flavors which are comprised in the gin, are being illustrated.
A wise man once said “To travel is to live” and I couldn’t agree more. I can’t think of anything that makes my heart beat more faster than sitting in a plane, holding my husband’s hand and waiting for the airplane to take off. And that’s what our summer was all about: holding hands, changing planes and celebrating our first year of marriage. This summer has treated us incredibly well and I as you could read in my previous travel posts about Puerto Vallarta and Isla Holbox, we have spent almost 3 weeks in Mexico. One of our last spots in this amazingly stunning country was Tulum – the former hippie outpost and probably one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
Good morning my lovelies! The weekend is over and I hope you have a good start into the new week. For me, this one is going to be pretty stressful, but I’m looking forward to managing all the tasks and appointments that are waiting for me. That’s why I took the weekend just for me and did nothing… nothing that has anything to do with work or the blog; because I knew if I didn’t take some time just for myself I probably won’t be able to manage everything that is due this week. Sometimes I think that it’s a sin to take a day off and do nothing, but don’t you think that this striving for more, working constantly and being online all the time is getting out of control? In the endless chaos we manage to stay on top of things, but we often forget or, rather say, skip out on the most important thing (or person) of all – ourselves. I know, we can’t afford to spend every day 2 or 3 hours waiting our favorite series or reading books, but at least once in a week we have to.
Hey guys! I’ve already shown you my outfit from my first day in Paris, and now it’s time for the second one. As you can see, I’m wearing again my beloved oversized denim coat from Zara, since it was the only one I’ve packed. This is a great chance to show you that you can wear one piece, but create totally different styles. The first outfit was more girly and playful. This one, even if combined with a dress, is thanks to these brogue booties more of a grunge style.
