Who doesn't like to travel and discover pretty things and places?
When we travel, we love wandering around and thereby discovering areas, shops & cafés by "coincidence".
However, I also do like to do some prep-research via the internet and check out some sites I really want to see.
In my recent travel-prep, I have come across a lot of "the most instagrammable..." guides. For us, going through those guides would be far too stressful, attempting to run from one beautiful place...
Perfect plans rarely work out how we had imagined.
This time in London, we had planned so much things to do – friends to visit, lunches, cafés etc.
But somehow, in a sleep-deprived phase and after a series of little inconveniences, we had to face it: we couldn't stick to our week-end plan....
About a year ago, we saw some documentary with beautiful cherry blossoms in Bonn.
When I asked LFSTYLT husband about this - he describes himself as a "Bonner" - he looked at me in astonishment claiming that the Bonn cherry blossoms are world known.
Even though I always like to make fun of him, I must admit that I was quite surprised to discover he was right when I looked this up...
A few days ago, we went for a day trip to nearby Cologne.
I had already been a few times to Cologne, privately as for business, visiting world-known heritage as well as the renowned Carnaval. To be honest, I had never really liked the city that I had visited on brief accounts.
Maybe it was due to the rushed through business meetings between trains or planes, or maybe it was due to the cultural marathon rushing through tourist-crammed areas. Maybe just both.
In any case, I decided to.
Nice has been on our bucket list for ages, so we were really excited to be flying over for the first spring week end of the year!
We had a tough programme ahead of us, given that we were meeting up with the same group as in Alsace - and also for a birthday! - so we saw this trip more as a first discovery...
