Memories of Shanghai

The first thing I laid eyes on when I got off the metro in Shanghai was the largest Uniqlo store that I had ever seen. The large red logo of the Japanese fashion brand was flashing brightly above the busy shopping street right in the middle of the French Concession and people and cars rushed by in a frenzy, carried by a sense of urgency.

Photo Diary: Freiburg, My Favorite Town in South Germany

A few weeks ago, S and me went to Freiburg for a long weekend to spend his birthday with his family. Since Freiburg is my boyfriend's hometown, I've had plenty of opportunities to visit over the years and over time the city has really become one of my favorite places in Germany. Freiburg is a student town in the far south of Germany with lots of character and I really love its bustling vibe that makes similar cities look kind of devoid of life.

Freiburg is only a short drive away from the borders of both France and Switzerland and many beautiful places in Germany which also makes it a great base to do some exploring. We especially love heading out to the Black Forest to do some hiking, but on our most recent visit we also made sure to spend some more time in the city and I decided to take you along with me with a little photo diary.

I hope you have all had an awesome summer so far! It's been way too hot in Germany these past few weeks and so it’s been almost impossible for me to form any coherent thoughts worthy of a post, but after weeks – if not months! – of waiting for my schedule to become a bit clearer, I have finally made some travel plans for the upcoming months that make me absolutely giddy with excitement and I can't wait to share them with you all!

What I Ate in Florence, Italy

I am not going to lie: One of the main reasons I was excited to travel to Florence this June was the food. I can’t imagine living a life where bread and pasta aren’t regular occurrences and would probably rather go vegan than give up carbs, even if that means that I will never be a perfect Size Zero, and as such Italy is obviously my own personal food paradise.
