Photo Essay: Impressions from Luxembourg City

To be honest, I had no real reason to go to Luxembourg. Usually, I book trips to places with famous museums or libraries or medieval churches I want to visit in mind, but none of those things called me to Luxembourg City. Back in February, I had been a little frustrated with winter and just randomly … Continue reading “Photo Essay: Impressions from Luxembourg City”

Photo Essay: The Best of April 2015

April was a rollercoaster ride kind of month: From weather to emotional states, there was just plenty going on this month for me. There were many ups and some downs, but mainly: There was spring! The month had actually started off with a giant April fools’ brought to Germany by the weather in Central Europe: Snow! And … Continue reading “Photo Essay: The Best of April 2015”

Photo Essay: The Best of March 2015

March somehow went by so quickly that I can barely believe it’s been four weeks since wrote my February round-up. But busy months always pass quickly, and March definitely was a busy month: From work obligations, to networking at the world’s biggest travel trade fair, to photo shoots, to a trip to Italy with my mom, … Continue reading “Photo Essay: The Best of March 2015”

Photo Essay: Impressions from Florence

This photo essay doesn’t really need an introduction: I was in Florence last week, and yes, it was a dream. It was my first time there and was so thrilled to finally see all the famous art and architecture in person.

Photo Essay: The Best of February 2015

Back in 2012 when I started this blog, I began researching what kind of blog series I should have. Because apparently, a blog needs a weekly series, right? At least I seemed like that to me. Basically every blog I’ve been following has, or has at least used to have, a weekly (photo) series. For many … Continue reading “Photo Essay: The Best of February 2015”

Photo Essay: Winter Sightseeing in Lower Saxony

I feel like I start every other blog post I write during the months of November to February with complaining about the weather. I know, you are probably bored with it. But, you know, winters in Central Europe can be really tough sometimes. Before Christmas it is still somewhat easy to accept that colors, light, and warmth … Continue reading “Photo Essay: Winter Sightseeing in Lower Saxony”

Photo Essay: Rome in Black and White

Back when I still wanted to write a dozen or more review posts to end 2014, a “Best 14 photos of 2014” was definitely something on my agenda. I know I’ve been saying this ever since I first started stealing the boyfriend’s dSLR back in late 2012, but the last year was an important year for … Continue reading “Photo Essay: Rome in Black and White”

Photo Essay: Christmas Time in Bremen

I’m not sure if it’s common knowledge that Germany has 16 federal states, but I’m pretty sure everyone has heard about oh-so-famous Bavaria. And don’t get me wrong, I love Bavaria — but Germany is NOT Bavaria. In the contrary to what the world sometimes seems to believe, beer steins and Lederhosen and even pretzels are … Continue reading “Photo Essay: Christmas Time in Bremen”

Photo Essay: Impressions from Bratislava

On one Sunday evening during the chaotic months of early summer, I just booked a cheap flight to Vienna. I wasn’t even sure I was actually going, but I needed something to look forward to during the stressful weeks that lay ahead of me then. Up until a week before my flight I wasn’t really … Continue reading “Photo Essay: Impressions from Bratislava”

Photo Essay: Impressions from Vienna

Somehow, I’m having a hard time finding words to describe my time in Vienna. Yes, it was pretty. Yes, the architecture was amazing. Yes, the Stephansdom cathedral and the Kunsthistorisches Museum brought me to tears. But other than that — Vienna and I didn’t really click. First glimpse of Vienna There are cities you love at … Continue reading “Photo Essay: Impressions from Vienna”
