Aachen: German history at its best.

Dear readers,

not much about fashion this week: Too much work and bad weather conditions in Düsseldorf are to blame. Or only me in the end? Who knows.

So this weekend, we decided to pay a visit to my wife's relatives in Belgium.
Before that we spent some hours in Aachen. Amazing city, with loads of German history, especially Karl der Große or Charlemagne (742 – 814).

Here are a few impressions of the Cathedral Treasury:

Waldfest Tegernseer Gebirgsschützen

Dear readers,

if you're not from Germany, the first thing that comes into your mind thinking about Germany surely is Lederhosen. You'll find them in Bavaria, my second destination this summer.

In the lovely village of Tegernsee (located at lake Tegernsee) it's no big deal to see people wearing traditional costume, called Tracht, because Bavarians commonly emphasize pride in their traditions. I also got a Tracht, but that's a different story.

The complete Tracht is worn on special occasions, like the Waldfest of Tegernseer Gebirgsschützen.

Here are a few impressions.

Back from holidays...

Dear readers,

I'm back after 2,5 weeks off.

At first, me and my little family spent 1 week in a lovely village in Tuscany called Caldana. We had lots of great food, great wine and fun on the beach. Moreover, we visited places like Massa Marittima, Grossetto, Talamone and Magliano in Toscana

Here are a few images.


Next post will be about my subsequent 1,5 weeks in Bavaria.

Off for summer holidays.

Dear readers,

it's been a while since my last post. Reason why? Too much work left no time to take pictures. And on the weekends I spent my time with my little family.

In a couple of days I'll start my summer holidays. First we'll travel to Bavaria, then 1 week in Tuscany, then 1 more week back in Bavaria.

I'll take some pictures, you can count on that.
