The 2nd Advent Weekend 2016!

The second Advent weekend in Hamburg! Since we had guests, we used the bright blue sky on Saturday to visit the harbor and some X-Mas markets. During sunset we were on a boat tour on the Alster – incredible romantic :). Sunday morning we looked down on Hamburg from its newest highlight – the Elbphilharmonie. A perfect weekend in this wonderful city!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week – have a bright one :)!

Winter Dom Time in Hamburg!

we3The blue Hamburg sky. All Pics by Franzi.

It’s Winter Dom time in Hamburg! During the last weekend, friends from Osnabrück visited me. Together with their little son we went to the Dom – Hamburg’s fair that takes place in spring, summer and winter (Yes indeed, nearly the whole year-long ;)). It’s a wild, colorful, loud, (cold) and fun adventure. Their little one looked thunderstruck from the first second until the last!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week – have a fun one :)!

Those Golden Fall Days!

This was a golden fall weekend here in Hamburg. Okay, there was a lot of rain and icy wind as well but it’s always amazing to see the sun come through the heavy clouds at this time of the year. Nevertheless, I spent quite some time inside: On Friday we were at The Great Gatsby ballet show (which was ok but nothing more). Saturday I was at the Hamburger Gitarrenfestival to hear a friend of mine play on stage and yesterday I was happy to stay at home with my books and watch (like every Sunday) my favorite crime series Tatort :).

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week – have a golden one :)!

A Relaxed Hamburg Weekend!

This last weekend I tried to relax a bit and to enjoy the first days of fall. I went (again) to the farmers market, cooked soups, visited the opening of the craft beer brewery Hopper Bräu and had a game night with friends. Perfection!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week – enjoy those beautiful September days!

hh4I was at the farmers market, again :)!

A Late-Summer Weekend with Friends!

OS3It’s already harvest time! Pic by Franzi.

I just came back from two days in my old hometown Osnabrück. We celebrated the second birthday of a little friend of mine and maybe I enjoyed the play time with him even more than he himself ;). Moreover, there was a garden party, good talks, cooking and just ‘quality time’. Here are some impressions of those last days.

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week – have one full of laughter!

OS2Our main activity was to put horses and donkeys and cows inside the saloon … and then to take them out of it … and again inside … :D.

OS1The garden of my friends looks already like fall has arrived.

A Look at the Sky!

we5Thursday evening in Hamburg (Schanze), part I! All Pics by Franzi.

The last days I was in Hamburg and in Berlin. The weather was either surprisingly hot (37 °C!) or felt like a thunderstorm was just around the next corner. Most impressing were the cloud formations in the sky: Cumulus clouds, right angle (!) clouds, blue sky or bright orange sunsets! Stunning and fascinating :).

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week – have a bright one!

we4Thursday evening in Hamburg (Schanze), part II. There was a  right angle in the cloud!

A Weekend in Münster!

we5Münster’s Residence! All Pics by Franzi.

The last weekend I spent with old friends in Münster and Osnabrück. It was nice to be back in those two cities of my past. From Friday to Saturday evening I was in  Münster with its bikes all around the city, the ever-present rain and the ‘Schloss‘ (the Residence). We ate (an enormous) pizza, were at a (school) event in the ‘Schloss’ and I bought a new purse on the flea market. Hope to be back there, soon again!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week – have a beautiful one!

A Lazy Hamburg Weekend!

This last weekend I stayed in Hamburg – an old friend visited me from Friday till Saturday and we enjoyed our time together, went to an open air concert and walked through the city. In the end, it was one of those rare weekends, where I finally was able to enjoy Hamburg and to calm down a bit :).

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Have a relaxed one!

we2Friday morning: Flowery Isemarkt!

we4Friday night: Rockabilly music (by the Cash Boys) in the DRAFTHOUSE.

we5Saturday: A stroll at the harbour – with the Queen Mary 2 in the dock.

The Eurovision Song Contest Weekend in Hamburg! #ESC2016

we3Sunny Alster! All pics by Franzi.

Unfortunately I had a bad stomach this whole weekend long – thanks to my own stupid self eating an old  salad :/. Nevertheless, I spent some hours outside in the ever-changing weather – extremely sunny, suddenly changing to cold and wet. And then there was also the #ESC2016. It may have been a sad result for Germany, but it was fun to watch it in a big group :)!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Stay fit!

Back in Berlin for the re:publica #rpTEN!

we3My daily way of transportation until Wednesday: The S-Bahn. All pics by Franzi.

Yesterday I was back on the road. After a relaxed weekend in Hamburg I am now in Berlin. The reason is easy to guess: It’s re:publica time! I am looking forward to lots of inspiring talks and people and hope that all those ‘cool kids’ won’t make me too shy ;).

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Stay relaxed and be inspired!
