Fall Adventures: The Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival

I've tried to avoid the cliche-ridden behaviour that is proclaiming a love for chunky knits, giant blanket scarves, steaming cups of tea and basically every other fall-related thing so far, but I can't help myself anymore and have to go all basic blogger on you: I love fall!

I love breathing the fresh and crisp morning air, seeing the leaves change color and wearing all my boots again, but what I may just enjoy the most is the food. I do love summer vegetables and the refreshing taste of really good ice cream, but now that October has come around, all I seem to crave is hearty stews, comforting soups and – you probably guessed it – pumpkin!

The Magnificent Duomo of Florence

When I say that you cannot possibly miss the Duomo in Florence, I’m not just trying to say that is the one sight that you should definitely visit when you’re in the city. What I’m really trying to convey, rather, is that it seems almost impossible to walk through the charming cobblestone streets of Florence and not spot this striking building when you look up to the sky.

The Duomo dominates the skyline and looms over the narrow alleys and broad square of the city like an imposing, yet magnificent giant and even majestic Renaissance palaces seem to be dwarfed by its shadow. Florence wouldn’t be Florence without the Duomo and so it only seems appropriate to dedicate an entire post to what may just be the most impressive cathedral I have ever seen in my life.

A Day in the Black Forest: Swimming & Walking Around Schluchsee

I always find it awkward to break radio silence on my blog, but this time - after almost three weeks of barely even posting an Instagram snap - it feels especially hard. I just got back from my trip to Spain and Rome which was all sorts of fun, but obviously also all sorts of exhausting and it's going to take me at least another week or two to make sense of the thousands of pictures that I took. But hopefully I can start sharing them with you soon! In the meantime, though, I thought I'd go back in time to the summer in Germany.
