Roman England

Hi hello,

I FINALLY get to write about our summer vacation. We went to Bath (by car), and we stayed in two different hotels on the way and in Bath (well, Batheaston), we stayed in a lovely cottage. It was the first vacation with family members missing (my two now adult sisters).  Well, I love long trips, I love reading in the car, listening to music, falling asleep and just relaxing the whole time. 169 167And it’s sometimes even beautiful to drive around. Every time I’ve been to England (like four times now) it has been sunny most of the time. Rainy England? I don’t know it. England’s weather presents itself rather goodly when I visit.
Uhm, now, how should I continue? There is a lot about that week I won’t publish – it would be simply too much! I tried to choose the best photographs … Well, our cottage. I loved it, especially the big window in the living room. And I loved the breakfasts. I really did. Somehow, when I think of that vacation, I smell coffee and bread with jam. Or the brilliant black tea. My goodness. They HAVE to export that to Germany. 323684Well, you may know or not, that in the Romans were having their Roman Baths in Bath( Haha, this sounds so stupid), because there are England’s only hot springs. Of course we visited it – it’s the reason Bath is so popular and the reason for all the tourists – but we didn’t visit it in the afternoon (we would have had to wait hours) but in the evening. Only few visitors were there and the lights went on and it was amazing. My dad and I even joked around with the sign…415 405 377 344Don’t mind the bad quality, like I said it was getting late and less light means less quality. We walked around after that visit and passed by the cathedral. In reality, one was not able to see the colors of the lights. But as I took a photo, I was surprised. 421On one morning (the night had been terrible, I hardly slept because of no reason I couldn’t fall asleep) I sneaked out and walked up the hill (5am) and I took pictures as the sun came up. Unfortunately the trees were in the way, but the clouds went pink anyway.554And one day we went to Castle Combe. That is such a cute village, so old and charming and everything, with a little church, a place to shop cake, a café… Lovely.482472497Last but not least: The cathedral. When we entered, there was this creepy organ music, if it’s worth to be called music at all. Must have been some so called ‘modern’ stuff’, but honestly, to me it sounded like a mad person rolling the head over the keys. But as it stopped, we began to enjoy our visit.608I’m glad I finally found some time to publish this!

Much love,

With the wind

Yup,

I’m here. Lately I got myself to take my bike and just go someplace. The first time I ended up at some beach, the second time in a field. P1140953 P1140974I needed some time alone and had to accept the fact that my mother was going to be mad at me again for riding around without telling anyone where exactly I’d be. P1150015Taking the pictures in the field felt weird, I photographed with the automatic release and ran into the field hoping to get a good shot. The people that came along were obviously confused. What kind of teenage girl runs around by herself taking pictures?P1150025Haha, my legs look so long in this one, it’s hilarious. Like a model on super high heels. P1150026I actually love para gliding. No, I’ve never done it, but it looks like a lot fun.P1150054 P1150085 P1150064I think the sun is the one thing that can turn a usual motive into something unforgettable. And did I ever mention Florita? She’s my beloved bike. I love her color. And I love flying through the landscape with her.

I’m done again.

Love,

Carried away

Hello world,

oh my goodness, I haven’t published anything in ages! That’s why I’m going to write and write and write now. Sooooo much has been going on and I must say, life can be dangerously stressful. School was asking a lot of me and sometimes it’s hard not to drown in all the pressure. This article will not be very spectacular, I’ll show a few pictures I took in my little breaks in between. 003 038Somehow, I tried new hairstyles, but I often destroy them before I leave home. They never last long enough…Oh, and that pink what so ever plant in our yard was beautiful this year:219 002I’ve always loved to photograph nature. And then this bird ended up in front of my window. 031These are just a few things that were lighting up my gray everyday life. Not to forget the perfect colors that are shown by the sky from time to time:043P1140981And one thing that is always cheering me up is to do sports. Seriously. I love it.  And these jogging pants are soooo comfortable!039Well, so much about that. I wont wait that long this time to publish the next article, I promise.

Love,

Flora ♥
