Travel diary: another dreamy weekend in Poland

After my first trip to Poland this summer, I was sure that I would go back to this beautiful country. But I was also sure, that the next trip would most likely happen in spring or summer of the upcoming new year. When my travel itch started to show up again, it was actually a rather annoying procedure to find a last minute destination and my curly better half and I somehow ended up on another dreamy and wonderful trip to this amazing country. Only a few days after booking, we hopped on a 4hr bus ride to Poznan and really enjoyed our short getaway, which was filled with amazing and hearty food and the exploration of this really picturesque town. The old town square alone was absolutely beautiful and I couldn´t stop taking pictures of the colourful houses. Although the sun wouldn´t come out much, I enjoyed the autumnal gloom and I can highly recommend going to Poznan, especially when it´s off-season.
The food really was to die for and whatever we ate, we always ended up happy (and I can be picky from time to time...). There were always nice veggie options available and we especially loved our lunch at Ludwiku Do Rondla, just off the main square (off the main square is obviously always the best place to eat!)

I´m also very happy to announce, that this wasn´t the last adventure of 2014. This year I´m going to spend christmas and new year´s on my very favourite island, Ireland and I can´t wait to start packing and planning. I've never spent christmas abroad and I´m very excited to see how the holidays are celebrated over there. Until then, I wish you all a lovely advent time. Enjoy your mulled wines.

The things I love: Autumn, are you here to stay?

Will this be a love song about autumn? I´m afraid so. Just like everyone else, I have a deeply rooted love for this time of the year and I always feel especially excited about life, when the leaves are changing. Might be that I´m just no summer child, as I can´t stand the heat, so I naturally enjoy my weather colder and with a touch of dreariness. To me there is just nothing than a walk in the chilly November air followed by a hot chocolate (with amaretto!) in a warm and cozy café or bundeling up at home. This relaxing and comfy "me"-time is rather needed these days, after stressing so much about finishing college all summer long. So I will try and soak up as much autumnal magic as possible this year and cherish every moment. Outfit-wise I´m all ready and set for layering and my coats and scarves are awaiting their time to shine. This burgundy one is the newest addition to my slightly over-sized collection and I´m already in love.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I can´t wait to type down a list with my favourite reads and I´d love to say hello to a few of you who might be using goodreads- as I´m a naturally nosy person and always interested in what other people are reading. So feel free to add me there!
I hope you liked my autumnal love song and the moments I captured with my phone over the last couple of weeks. I know everybody expresses their feelings towards the Pumpkin Spice Latte season and seems to be super eager about it, but let´s be honest- it´s a damn fine season.
 What´s not to love about it?

Travel diary: a trip to the bottom of my heart, a trip to Prague

Here it finally is: the second post about my summer trip through Poland and the Czech Republic. The holiday does actually feel like a lifetime ago, but I love taking that trip down memory lane, as Prague is one of my favourite places in the world and holds a very special place in my heart. I visited the city many times, so I did not end up doing too many tourist things while I was back there in August. Most of the time was spent eating to be honest and I enjoyed a few delicious trdelnik filled with melted nutella, hearty dinners and a lot of beer. I did also stroll through every possible corner and took quite a few pictures of all the beautiful places this city has to offer.

That cake though! I know that Café Louvre is no secret tip, but I still really love it there. Every time I visit Prague, my trip will end with a piece of cake and a cup of hot chocolate there, because the rooms of the café are beautiful, the waiters are dressed super classy and their desserts are simply to die for.

That´s it for today. Now that my messy college work is done, I can´t wait to blog a bit more and I plan on putting together a post about my favourite books very soon. I hope you´re going to like a bit of a different post up here.
