A Winter Holiday in Budapest at Baltzar

While visiting my family in Germany over Christmas, I had organised a trip for my mum and myself to Budapest. I had heard so many great things about the city, and couldn’t wait to experience its beauty in person. And it absolutely delivered. I would describe Budapest as a mix between Paris and Vienna. Better than Paris and better than Vienna. Calmer than Paris, less touristy (even though it was a rather busy time to go - right between Christmas and New Years), and at least just as charming.

A Day Trip to Tübingen

While spending time in the South of Germany I visited the charming old town that is Tübingen. Situated along the Neckar river are typical old German houses, made even more beautiful by the colourful flower arrangements gracing the river banks. In summer students spend their days and nights sitting on the stone walls by the river, sipping mate or sharing a bottle of wine, overlooking the gondolas floating by.

Warm Summer Days in Germany / 2

Before heading North for our road trip to Sweden and Norway, I spent a couple of relaxing weeks in Germany. It was late summer, with warm days and lots of sunshine, crips mornings filled with the smell of freshly baked bread, and afternoons spent baking vegan cheesecake, eating plums and drinking iced coffee. I went on long walks through nature and the forest, picked fresh apples straight off the tree (organic of course), admired the moon and the stars at night, and took in all the quiet, calm, stillness and peace. I absolutely loved it. Spending time in Germany is always the best, it’s the best medicine, combats stress, and leaves me feeling so relaxed, refreshed and recharged.
