My Summer Travel Plans

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!

My summer is setting out to be pretty busy: I’m spending most of August clued to my laptop and the library while I work on a serious assignment for school. The searing heat makes concentrating on the work a lot harder than it should be and I find myself reaching new levels of mental exhaustion each evening, but knowing that the hustle will be worth it in the end keeps me going to give it my all and best.

But it’s in September that things are truly going to get interesting: S and me are going to Spain for two weeks! I have never been to Spain, if you disregard a super short trip when I was barely just a toddler, and so I’m super excited to start exploring this part of Europe!

There is so much that I hope to see and experience in Spain – way too much for a two-week-visit! – that I barely know where to start, but as we really want to see the Alhambra in Granada, we will probably spend most of our time in Andalusia and end our trip with a few days of soaking up the atmosphere in Madrid. I also want to stuff myself silly with Tapas and Churros and I know that S would love it if we could squeeze in a bit of beach time somewhere, but let’s see how things will plan out! 

After Spain, we are going to fly back to Germany to attend a wedding and then I’m jetting off again to Rome with my mother for a little Mother-Daughter-Trip. I’ve wanted to visit Rome for years and as someone who was forced studied Latin for almost nine years, I feel that not having been to Rome yet is almost a hole in my education. 

I am super stoked about the opportunity to finally visit the eternal city and I am ready to immerse myself in the millenia of culture and history that permeate the streets and alleys of Rome! Visiting Italy twice this year feels like such a treat and I'm sure my mother and me are going to have one heck of a time! I also have a few free days before heading to Spain that I may use for a quick little domestic trip within Germany, but that will most likely be an even more spontaneous venture. 

But now is your turn: Do you have any recommendations for me, both for Spain and Rome? Where should I eat, what should I see, where I should stay? Basically: What are your favorite places? I’m all ears, so please do share your tips with me – it will be greatly appreciated! :)

Here’s to a beautiful summer! 

And please do tell: What are your travel plans for the summer?
