Boy, it’s hot outside! I’m sitting in my flat right now, 37 degrees celsius outside, trying to stay cool with cold tea and ice cream. So instead of going outside in the blazing sun, I’m thinking back on my beautiful hike along the river Rhine last week…
With beautiful sunshine, but kinder temperatures, we hiked around the Siebengebirge on the Rheinsteig. It made me realise once more, that there’s so much beauty around Bonn. Forests and wilderness, right outside our doorstep!
We hiked the second part of the Rheinsteig, a long-distance walking trail that leads from Bonn to Wiesbaden. Most parts are easily reached by train, so it’s perfect for a day trip. You just hop on a train, hike around and then go on the train straight home at night.
Can you believe that 2018 is already halfway done? It’s July! To celebrate the first half of the year and ring in the second one, a friend of mine and I decided to start a new tradition. We want to go to the sea on the first weekend of July every year from now on. Our first trip took us to Oostkapelle in the Netherlands, and it sure was the perfect weekend to relax and find new energy for the next few months.
Right after work on Friday we jumped in the car and drove down to the sea. You might have noticed: We weren’t planning on doing much this weekend. Enjoying the sun, relaxing and leaving the everyday behind, that’s all we had on our agenda. Right after arriving we turned off our phones so we wouldn’t waste one second on Social Media while we could look at the sea!
Two weeks ago, I came home from a beautiful holiday to Mexico. A friend of mine is studying there at the moment (in Veracruz) and me and another one of our friends went to visit her. After a few days in the city she studies in (Xalapa) the three of us flew to Yucatan and visited Tulum and Isla Holbox.
Tulum had been on my list of places to visit for ages, and it was definitely a trip to remember! The colors, the beautiful beach, friendly people, amazing fresh food…it was a dream. Looking at these pictures, I can’t really believe we were at that very place only two weeks ago!
This summer, I took one of the most relaxing and beautiful trips of my life. I went to the Isle of Jersey. Where to exactly?, you might ask – at least, most of my friends asked. Well, the Isle of Jersey is a tiny (8 km x 14 km) British island just off the French coast. It’s near the gulf stream, so the weather is mostly fine and it’s perfect to just enjoy the quiet and relax. I truly loved it.
This is a very picture-heavy post, and there are still many more pictures I would have loved to share with you! Jersey is simply stunning. At the end of this post, you will probably want to travel there yourself, believe me ;)
