Sommerlicher Vormittags-Spaziergang während einer Dienstreise in den Süden Deutschlands (Saarbrücken – Deutsch-Französischer-Garten, 3. Juni 2019)

In Hamburg sind die Temperaturen wieder deutlich unter die 20 Grad-Marke gefallen. Beim Blick durch meine Fotos des letzten Monats wird mir trotzdem ganz warm ums Herz: Es herrschten nicht nur hochsommerliche Temperaturen, ich konnte auch viel Zeit mit Freunden und Familie verbringen, habe zwei kleine Erdenbürger und eine kleine Erdenbürgerin persönlich begrüßen dürfen und bin stolze Tante von einem kleinen Neffen geworden :). Darüberhinaus gab es natürlich auch ein bisschen was zu Arbeiten – aber sogar das wurde teilweise unter den freien Himmel verlegt. Dazu kamen ein quakender Angriff der Killerenten, Bahnfahrten quer durch Deutschland und viele, viele schöne Augenblicke!

Habt einen guten Start in eine neue Woche voller herzerwärmender Momente :)!

Entenangriff während eines wunderbaren Kanuausflugs. Es gab nur einen kleinen Fingerbiss, der größte Teil der Passagiere blieb unverletzt (Hamburg – Stadtparksee, 15. Juni 2019)

Work work work: Sommer des Wissens auf dem Rathausmarkt (Hamburg, 20. Juni 2019)

Nach der Arbeit kommt das Vergnügen: Spontaner Aperol-Absacker auf Annas Balkon (Hamburg – Eimsbüttel, 21. Juni 2019)

Ort der Ruhe und Erholung: Thaimassage im Chiang-Mai (Frankfurt am Main, 28. Juni 2019)

Children’s Books! #fbm16

Those Wonderful Cookbooks! #fbm16

cooking6Love at first sight: Raw by Icelandic chef Solla Eiriksdottir. All pics by Franzi, made on the #fbm16.

Cookbooks are a big passion of mine. Maybe I shouldn’t wonder why my notebook is now full of new cookbook titles after the Frankfurt book fair #fbm16. Here are (only) twelve of my favorites I found this year – most of them were published in 2016, some re-published and some a bit older :).

Frankfurt Book Fair!

FF2Pic by Franzi.

I am just back from the Frankfurt Book Fair. This year’s guest country was Indonesia. It was wonderful to discover this foreign world via its literature, authors and food! Now I need to collect my thoughts and notes. Later this week I will present you the things I’ve learnt :).

Just a little side note for Frankfurt travellers: I ate at the restaurant Im Herzen Afrikas – it’s a strong recommendation!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week – enjoy all the stories it offers you!

Esprit Montmartre

It is around 1900. We’re in a district of Paris called Montmartre. You may have heard of it. Or you’ve even been there before? In any case, I would like to present you an amazing exhibition on the life in this district around the year 1900.

It gives you spectacular insights into the life of artists at that time in that district, painting a vivid image of contrasts to the mundane Paris of the “belle époque”. It also addresses clichés such as the can-can girls of the Moulin Rouge, flamboyant coffeehouse night and colorful afternoon tea scenes as well as penniless artists drinking absinth – which at that time was cheaper than wine.

Interested in these kinds of details on the lives of artists such as Toulouse-Lautrec, van Gogh, Picasso and Valadon as well as the lives of prostitutes and street artists? Have a little taste of the exhibition now and come see it until 1st of June.
