As already mentioned in this post, our trip to Fuerteventura was full of sunshine, crystal clear blue water, beautiful beaches and a whole lot of relaxation. And although the Canary Islands are volcano Islands and the landscape of Fuerteventura cannot really be described as diverse I totally fell in love with the Corralejo Natural Park, a wide desert-like coast in the North-East of the island. Once entered there is literally nothing around you but sand and the sky, so this definitively called for some shooting action! Since it was a super warm and sunny day I wore my all-time favorite summer outfit: jeans shorts combined with a delicate lace top. It was such a perfect day and I can still feel the sun and the hot breezy air on my skin while looking at the pictures trying to beam myself back to that heavenly place. Oh, this is definitely a place worth revisiting sometime, especially at that time of the year where the weather here is not so pleasant anymore. Also, if you are planning on going there I can highly recommend staying somewhere in the North of the island as it is not as touristy as the South coast line. Plus, that is where the National Park is located 🙂
When I had to transfer all my files to my new Mac last week I started browsing through my photos and I came to realise two things: One, I am really looking forward to summer. That really is no surprise though, because let’s be real here: We spent the majority of our lifetime looking forward to summer up in Northern Europe. Secondly, I found my travel pictures from our trip to the Canary Islands (Fuerteventura, to be exact) last autumn which I have not shared on the blog yet. It was such a beautiful trip with lots of very well needed sunshine, crystal clear blue water and relaxation. Looking at all these great pictures we took does make me miss those breathtaking colours, the clear blue sky and the sea a lot, increasing my feeling of wanderlust which makes me want to pack up my bikinis and hop right onto the next plane. Or well, okay, planning our next sunny vacation would be a fair start. Inspiration needed? I love love love looking for beautiful places on instagram, pinterest and travel blogs! Also, a great source of inspirational input can be found on DER.COM’s ‘Reisewelten’ where you can find information on all kinds of destinations all sorted according to different kinds of dreamy getaway such as family, couple, beach, islands, wellness and so much more! I have a few great city trips to look forward to (Paris, Milan, London), but still, summer vacation is my favourite and I think we are going to spend it on an island again… Where are you headed next?
After two and a half super relaxing weeks in France (and one week back at work) I finally found some time to look through my pictures of which I would love to share some with you guys today. First we spent two days in Paris and drove to the Atlantic Coast afterwards. Since this was my third trip to Paris I did not have any must-see’s or -do’s on my list and since the weather was crazy (temperatures well above 30°C) we mostly just wandered around, occasionally having coffee and food breaks in the sweetest Parisian cafés. The Eiffel Tower was a must for the others though, so we went there after dinner on Friday night to enjoy the light show (with a million other tourists). Although we only stayed for two nights, this city has proven to me once again that it is just always worth a trip!
On Saturday we were already headed to the sea where we had rented a house close to the beach. Those two weeks we spent there were probably the most relaxing weeks I had this year (so far) – We went surfing almost every day, but the rest of the day was well spent with lounging on the deck chairs in the garden or at the beach, with great food, books and the best friends. Although the weather back home is beyond summery at the moment, I must admit that I am still missing this vacation feeling I was filled with those two weeks down at the coast… BUT, the next vacay is coming for sure – and until then… I still have all these beautiful pictures to look at and even more memories in my head.
If there is a place I am probably never going to get bored of it is definitely London! There is just so much to see, do and explore that is making each trip to this beautiful city unforgettable. Well, lucky me, as of recently I have not one but three of my friends living there giving me the perfect opportunity to visit London even more often. And, what can I say, those past four days have proven to me once again that a trip to that city is always more that worth it! I spent two days at a friend’s place in the north of the city and then 2 more days at another friend’s student dorm at the Royal Holloway University outside of the city. Since I have been to London a few times now we skipped the main sightseeing must-sees and mostly wandered through the city without any particular destination – this way I spotted boroughs and places I would have never found otherwise. Enough talking, now see for yourself what I was up to during my stay in London:
Last, but not least: the third part of my Santorini photo diary! Time flies by so fast – looking through these pictures makes me feel as if it happened like a year ago or something. However, I do not want you to miss all these beautiful shots and moments and am happy to share some more summer vibe with you today, before autumn will take over completely…
