Travel diary: rainy summer days in Kraków

As it is more than time to overcome the silence here on this blog, I prepared a little travel diary about my recent travels to Poland and the Czech Republic. This summer wasn't actually as travel heavy as other years (due to the ugly obligation of writing my master thesis) so I looked forward to this trip even more and was not disappointed at all. After a short stop and night in Wroclaw, we spent a great deal of time in Krakow and I can only recommend you to visit this city as well, if you haven't already been there. It was beautiful, full of charm and history. We spend most of our time strolling around old town and visiting museums and the Wawel castle. Obviously, we ate plenty of pierogi and drank lots of beer. One rainy morning (it did rain a lot...) led us to quite a gem and so we enjoyed delicious lunch and tea at the Massolit English bookshop and cafe with a book browse afterwards. Definitely worth a visit! All in all Krakow was truly a perfect place for a getaway, so I'd really love to go back again one day.

After Wroclaw and Krakow we traveled on towards Prague. But I leave this to another post, well I have to anyway, because I once again snapped way too many pictures. If it is getting too silent here in the meantime, don't forget to visit me on Instagram, as I post things like current reads, looks and tons of coffee pots much more regularly than here.

Travel diary: Belgium bound

Yet another travel diary? Indeed! Another long overdue holiday took place over the last weekend, when my very best girlfriend and I went to a BFF trip to Belgium. It's a shame how friendships can fall apart when you don't water them like living plants. So we packed our bags, flew to Brussels and did some serious catch up. And it was great! Next to drowning ourselves in lakes of sugary waffle yumminess, we visited the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, the Atomium, ate delicious (non belgian) pizza and danced the nights away to catchy disco tunes (ones we usually despise!) just because it's so much fun doing stuff like that together.

Best pistachio ice cream I had in a long long time. How deadly is pistachio ice cream anyway? Definitely my all-time fave!
Besides the great time in Brussels, we also spend a day in Bruges, as the train literally needs an hour only. Rumor has it I snapped far too many pictures there, so I will leave our little daytrip to another post. So be prepared for more. In the meantime, why not sending your bff some sweet words and a stupid selfie, because what would you be without her?

Travel diary: back to Dublin

Oh yes, I´m back from a much needed holiday. Not that life was too stressful before I left (I mean, when is it ever a walk in the park?) but flying back to that wonderful island Ireland was just something that seriously had to be done. I spent a lovely time in and around Dublin, dipped scones and custard creams into my tea on a daily basis and if I could, I would hop on a plane back right away. Although Berlin keeps growing on me, I did lose my heart to Dublin and will always miss this city.

Except a trip to Howth, I didn't really do many special things on this trip. I just relaxed and soaked up Irishness as much as possible. I obviously ate many salt and vinegar chipper chips and did the usual shopping damage, but I wouldn't mind making you guys a little "What to do in Dublin" post soon, if you are interested in that? Let me know and I'll type down a few suggestions about my happy place!
