Botanischer Garten

Insect Pavillion, Munich

It took me too long to realise that the Botanical Gardens are more than just their greenhouse, which hosts the butterfly exhibition every Winter. Although I managed to go there in a warm and sunny day in September, the poor excuse we had for a Summer meant the blooming season was long gone already. Of course that didn't stop me from walking around the entirety of the garden in heels (it was a spontaneous decision made in fear that it would be the last sunny and warm day until next May - it wasn't), imagining how pretty it should be in full bloom, or all golden in Autumn.

Finally went back to Berlin for a weekend. First mandatory thing to do was to have a mojito. The second mandatory thing to do was visit the Helmut Newton Foundation. Then just eat greap, cheap food.

triangle lace bras and faux fur collar

Dear Winter,

I've stocked up on properly fitting bras, and even got a faux fur collar that is very warm, and very fluffy, and I wish there was a warm weather equivalent of it. I am ready for you.
Please don't come.

a Nice week

Turquoise water, Nice

We booked 6 days in Nice for late August, after rightfully guessing that the odds of us ever going to the beach in Portugal were very low, to replenish our sunshine intake before the German winter. What we didn't expect was BF getting a bit sick just before the holidays and that we wouldn't be able to just sit at the beach all day and do nothing, so instead we took advantage of being able to go to any town around Nice for 1.5 by bus and visited Èze, St. Paul de Vence and Cannes.

Fish cassoulette, Nice Crêpe with ice cream at Häagen-Dazs, Nice
Mussels, Nice Barnacles, Azores

Since finding free time for editing/sorting/uploading photos of our holidays in Nice seems to be harder than I thought, here are some snapshopts of the main goal of my holidays this summer: eat great food while I can. Especially fresh fish and sea food. I apologise for the low quality, but I was lucky I even remembered to take a photo before/after eating...

No idea what this was when I ordered it, turned out to be delicious. // Crêpe with ice cream at Häagen-Dazs. Or why I’ll never be a food blogger.
When in doubt, have mussels. I was in doubt often. // Boiled barnacles. Yum.
