O ur excursions are mainly driven by a keen interest in architecture and gastronomy. In other words, having taken hundreds of photos of buildings, we hurry to assuage our hunger by some local specialities. :)
A nice white table-cloth and a bunch of colourful tulips on the table – this means our home has also left its winter mood behind…..and Easter has come again.
Independent of what we have in mind (shopping, professional interest or simply day-dreaming) when we visit a fair, the latest trends in industrial design will have a long-lasting impact on us.
ISH Frankfurt (the world’s leading trade fair for the Bathroom Experience, Building, Energy, Air-conditioning Technology, Renewable Energies) has a reputation in the construction industry.
Just a few ideas from this year’s fair by some of the leading companies in the production of sanitary facilities:
Sunday, lunchtime. After finishing up this heartwarming bowl of soup, we have no choice but to take a siesta.
My feelings about Paris (ever since my first visit about 20 years ago) can only be described as a state of never ceasing admiration.
Here is a very simple bonbon recipe to surprise someone special on women’s day. :)
When driving past lake Balaton, it is quite difficult to miss the mementos of Hungarian concrete architecture from the period between 1945 and 1990. Most of these buildings fulfill their original function or take on a different role that was later appointed to them in quite an undeserving condition. They are patiently waiting for someone to recognize their timeless beauty beneath the „Mediterranian orange” paint and take action to save them.
Barney Stinson’s (How I Met Your Mother) legendary line “Challenge accepted!” has become an adage in our home as well……mostly in the kitchen. :)
The topic of my first entry is a place that might seem familiar to many of you. The Black Forest (Schwarzwald) is a nature reserve in southwestern Germany, however, for some – those, who see the Danube flow across their country – it is a lot more than that. Without seeing it we know it and consider it our own, since it is the place where the Istros-Danubius-Donau-Duna-Dunav-Dunărea originates.
But of course, we will not settle for so little! :)
