  • This is my ideal home, an old timber home next to the water.
.
It has been such a busy few weeks of school for the girls. New teachers, trying out activities and adjusting to new schedules for all of us. Manic! But, we’re starting to get the hang of it and we think the school year will go well. Crossing fingers and toes!!
.
I have a full week this week and next. A bit of studying, volunteering, and work besides the family. Will share more later. In the mean time... Kaysersberg, France. Just around the corner from Colmar.
  • Tell me how to prep a child for blood work? Or you just go, with two extra adults, and hold the kid down? Jovie gets freaked out over the tiniest wound. I would probably walk over a suspended bridge than have to go through this. And I am deathly afraid of heights.
.
It’s nothing serious, the doc just wants to make sure on something and it needs to be seen via blood withdrawal.
.
When you got told that two German authors made Little Red Riding Hood story well known back in the days.
.
Have you ever read the origin of LRTH? It’s quite interesting. Brother Grimms were not the original authors but nobody really knows for sure who was and where the story actually came from. If you go to my Story, swipe in on the article and read more if you are curious.
.
Walking the beautiful streets of Mainz, Germany. If you ever have a long layover in Frankfurt, hop on the 🚂 and visit this cute city just a short ride away.
  • Found a bit of roses in my 📷 roll.
.
This cottage’s name is hidden. What do you think is an appropriate name for this beauty in the sleepy village Near Sawrey, Lake District? Hill Top, which was Beatrix Potter’s home, is just up the road.
.
A warm September week. It’s nice. Socks and a hot ☕️ in the mornings and evenings and flip-flops in the afternoon. I can’t complain.
  • The roses are still in bloom here! Are they still going near you also?
.
Went for a walk and these beauties caught my eyes.
.
This reminded me of what my Instagram started out as: a place to share the beauty of the everyday, not just the fab/insta famous places.
.
I bought a new toy. I hope this little 📷 will give me the motivation I need to snap, edit and get started on doing a bit of videos too.
.
It was almost a Sony, then it became a Fuji vs Olympus. It was super close to pushing the buy button on the Olympus but instead, I am now the new owner of a Lumix.
.
Take care!
  • Evening Friday Germany vibe. Especially when you live in wine country. Grape vines in many corners. Isn’t that so pretty?
.
Cafe with friends, 🍷 in hand, a walk with loved ones, 🐶 included, and just slowing down after a busy week of work, school, home and life.
.
The glowing warm evening sun is getting more rare but the cafe scene, the walks, and the memory making continues on.
.
Germany is fairytale-like this way!
.
What are you up to this weekend? One of the biggest wine festival is happening not far from us but we don’t like crowds 🙈 Saturdays are starting to fill up with kids’ activities but we do have Sunday. We have no plans yet. Maybe we’ll go to the festival then, when most are nursing a hangover from the night before 😜😂
.
Happy weekend!!
  • What’s your favourite comfort food? Mine would be Pho like soup. Clear, brothy and filled with fresh spices, veg, noodles and a bit of meat.
.
Gorgeous Colmar on a lovely summer evening. Sitting outside whilst enjoying drinks and meals with friends and family. Looking forward to revisit this coming Christmas. I know, it’s still September 😜
  • I wonder what autumn in Germany will be like. I saw a bit of colours on the tips of the trees and I could feel my heart skip a beat.
.
Excited!!
.
Germany is business as usual today but my American and British friends, hope you’ve enjoyed a lovely long weekend!!
.
This is one of my favourite Bury St Edmunds view. Our old hood. If you haven’t seen this building before, yes, those homes were built into the old Abbey Wall.
.
Laters 😘
  • I oh so miss my Instagram wifey @dy_ellie 😢 IG isn’t the same without a real life travel, brunch and chat buddy!!
.
Who are you missing today?
.
You’re looking at about 900 years worth of history right there. Not Ellie, that building she’s snapping 😜
.
Warwick is 👌
  • That building was first built in the 15th century. Due to a variety of reasons, it got rebuilt a few times: 18th, 19th and 20th century. Despite the many rebuilds, this is the oldest house in Mainz.
.
Gutenberg, the father of the printing press, came from Mainz. The interest from this house was used as collaterals for his invention. The Bible was the first book he printed. Before the printing press, it would take about two years for one Bible to be reproduced.
.
Don’t you just love history?
