Do you ever think what was going on in your life a year ago? Two?
I did that today, after seeing these pics, from way back when, and now I am stuck with a huge grin on my face.
I did so many things – most of the time, I don’t even realise how many. I am blessed with amazing experiences. Some good, some bad. All so ‘Sex and the City’.
A year ago I was pretty much heartbroken, two years ago I was in Budapest on a crazy shopping spree, 4 years ago I was in Wien. Wien is one of my favourite cities – I always felt I can escape there – worries, school, work, everyday life. It’s like you are in a different time frame. Exiting one metro station you can arrive at an amazingly romantic palace, the next one you might end up surrounded by modern art. Or a restaurant market. Or the city hall where some cool concert takes place. Or walking on Danube’s banks. Or eating Manners (one of my favourite deserts) or Sacher torte.
My favourite – Kunsthistorisches Museum. I always go there.
I still want to go on a carriage ride there;))
Still…nothing compares to Paris.
Anyhow I wonder if I could turn back time, would I do anything different? Could, or even better yet, would I change anything? 🙂 99.99% I think I wouldn’t change a thing.
When I went to Ibiza I expected lots of poorly behaved tourists, with no class, an over crowded place with lots of clubs and no amazing views. What a mistake:) It’s so much more than that.
Today my energy level is close to zero, so my heart is set on this marvellous island that is part of the Islas Baleares – Formentera, a place I wish I could be right now (or better, since this morning). Pristine beaches, amazing views, perfect sand, delicious food and the best Mojitos. Pretty much heaven. The only regret about this place is that I didn’t rent a Vespa to explore the entire island. Next time;))
Now back to daydreaming<3
The dress is h&m, the belt is Pull and Bear, the bathing suite is Victoria’s Secret and the sandals are Accessorize.
My everyday status is wanderlust. Irrelevant of what I am doing, I always have a strong desire to go and conquer something – ok, travel, but conquer sounds better :D.
So many places to go, so many things to discover.
These pics are from an amazing Lake – Lago Maggiore and the three amazing islands – Isole Borromee – which I visited with friends. It’s a wonderful place to visit for a relaxing weekend – alone, with friends, however. Besides the fabulous buildings, luxurious gardens, there are lovely small restaurants and wine bars where we met some lovely people (that laughed at my lack of wine knowledge).
Of course I am wearing my favourite travelling-visiting-lot’s-of walking outfit. I just can’t get enough of leather pants – in any combination possible.
I’m wearing: a Bershka blazer and leggings, a Zara t-shirt, h&m flats and jewellery and a no name clutch.
What to do when I have no inspiration? When I am bored and not motivated. When for whatever reason I am sad or on a blue state of mind and spirit. Or serious changes take place.
Well, I cruise over holiday or childhood pictures.
Ever since I have went to the most amazing, luxurious, devastatingly ravishing and adorable Florence (or Firenze) the next best thing that I can do is relish on those memories when I have a bad day.
Also, because I am a workaholic and my dear beloved friends are also workaholic, it’s so nice to look back on the amazing time we had in those amazing places.
So Firenze … Firenze is a dream come true for any history lover as I am. You read about it, you watch documentaries about it (my favourite – Monty Don’s Italian Gardens is the only one I have seen that does justice to Firenze’s splendour even if for only one episode), but nothing prepares you for it’s magnificence. And delicious cuisine. And amazing stores. And breath-taking views. And, and, and…..I could never stop because I couldn’t say anything negative about Firenze (they have parties in museums – how awesome is that?!??!).
Because the entire city is worth being visited and discovered, and we didn’t have an infinite amount of time, we chose to thoroughly visit Palazzo Pitti (an entire day and it was so worth it), Uffizi, Galleria dell’Accademia, Ponte Vecchio, Il Duomo, Palazzo Medici and many more but I don’t want to bore anyone. Even so I need two more month there. So if anyone needs a guide, don’t hesitate to contact me:)
P.S.1: A must in Florence: get hand made/painted personalized envelopes and cards. I adore mine.
P.S. 2: Fortunately I don’t have many blue days:)
P.S. 3: “Da Vinci’s Demons” is a tv show I just started watching. It’s a nice insight into what Florence was, although I prefer “A Murder of a Medici Princess”.
