It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

It’s a Tuesday evening, I’m sitting on the sofa with a cup of tea and a warm cardigan, it’s raining outside – summer is over, autumn has arrived 🙂

You know what – it’s okay. I’m looking forward to these rainy and comfy days that you can spend inside, rummaging around in the apartment, watching movies, reading books, dreaming dreams… Getting a routine back in the daily life (that hopefully will include more blogging after this extended summer break 😉 ) and calming down after busy months.

But before diving into autumn life it feels like it is time for a summer recap. Kind of hard after this amazing summer. Maybe it’s best to leave you a picture of what was probably my most favorite place this summer…

…and a big, big thank you my family and my friends who made this summer with its sun and warmth, festivals and afterworks, beach days and city nights to one of the best summers ever!

Green, green, green …

With every day it feels more like spring and summer are here for good now – my nose got its first sunburn of the year! 😀

As mentioned before, the absolute spring color for me is green. So that’s the color that can be found all over the apartment… 🙂

One might think that candles in the bathroom are unnecessary
as we don’t have a bathtub and therefore no romantic baths…

… but who says you that folding laundry can’t be romantic either? 😉

One of the best places in Stockholm, especially during spring and summer, is the open air museum Skansen. It is located on Djurgarden, one of the many islands of Stockholm, and was founded in 1891. It houses a zoo but its main purpose is to show how the different areas of Sweden looked during the 19th century – with a special focus on how the people lived during this time. There is a vegetable garden where people in farmers’ costumes grow vegetables, a bakery where the baker bakes delicious cinnamon buns in an original oven from the 19th century, old farming houses and stables and so much more. It’s so much to see and to and experience that it is basically impossible to explore the whole “museum” at one time. I’ve been there more than once and still haven’t seen all of it… Continue reading

When I woke up this morning it was white outside. The night brought some snow. And as much as I love snow – this morning, I took the blanket and pulled it over my head. It’s time for spring. That means blue sky, golden sun, warmer temperatures, first flowers. NO SNOW.

So, what better there is than a past-photo-blog with some really summery pictures from a picnic in a biiiig park in Vienna. Oooh, right now I can’t even imagine how wonderful it must be to go outside without 500 layers of clothes. Or putting on summer dresses. Or staying outside long evening. Continue reading

Okay, this week’s photo post is gonna be a short one (it’s a very lazy Sunday today, as we had a birthday party from a dear friend which lasted until… well, very late). But I like the pictures because they remind me of a really good spring/summer-night I had in Vienna a couple of years ago.

It was end of May, which is a really good time in Vienna because it is already warm, you can spend time outside, the summer-feeling has reached the city but it’s not yet holiday season, so there is still a lot of people in town.
