Missed me yet? 😉 I have a good excuse for staying away: mom and auntie visited for 5 days last week, so I was busy busy. Between work, sightseeing and eating out, I had no time left on my hands, not even to draw my breath, let alone blog. 😉 But let me tell you about the fun we had together!
On Thursday the weather was frightful and I had to work (I was actually a bit glad I didn´t have to pretend not minding the rain!), so they did some sightseeing on their own and came home wet and cold. In the evening my mom felt unwell (she was tired and had eaten some mussel soup that didn´t agree with her), so I took auntie and Sam out for a walk to the Opera house and we enjoyed the stormy sky with a glass of champagne in our hand.
This post is inspired by Edvard Munch, the great Norwegian painter, who would spend most of his holidays in Warnemunde. I got a glimpse of the place a while ago, immortalized in a movie they play at the Munch museum in Oslo, and I fell in love right away! I´m usually the kind of person who prefers summer during the European summer time, so the Mediterranean sea is an obvious choice. I usually need to know it´ll be sunny and nice, no matter what the weather Gods feel like in that period. Lately, however, I´m starting to get the charm of Nordic summers, too. It´s like travelling to Romania in May instead of August, the weather will be more moody, but you´ll probably have lots of fun being able to walk everywhere (instead of being stranded on the beach, by the pool or by the air condition), eating good food and reading or sleeping in if it happens to rain. So for the coming years, when we´ll finally have a driving licence and a car, I´m thinking of thrifting our way through Sweden (they´re famous for tons of countryside antique stores), eating and bathing our way through Denmark (they´re renowned for their incredible sandy beaches) and camping out in Germany, by the Baltic sea. 😉 For a perfect finish, a couple of days in Berlin are a must. What do you reckon?
