Any plans for the weekend? We are going to the cinema tonight to see Quartet, the first film directed by Dustin Hoffman. I’ve heard is quite funny so I’m looking forward to it! This week has been a little bit hard and I want to finish it with a good laugh.
Tomorrow we’re going to Hamburg, so we are excited because that means shopping! ;) On Sunday we will work on some new surprises for the blog, (stay tuned!) and we will read every post available about Milan fashion week, a great Sunday, don’t you think?
What about you? I hope you have a great fun weekend!!!
This Thursday Saint Nicholas is coming! He will bring sweets and small treats and gifts. Great German tradition, if you ask me. Wake up to a nice pair of shoes full of chocolates is a wonderful idea, don’t you think?
For those who want to adopt this adorable tradition, here you have our sweetest suggestion: Summerbird and Galler chocolates.
We discovered both brands the first time we visited Hamburg. Since then, every time we visit this lovely city we come back home with a bag full of deliciousness, as you can see in the picture :-). I totally recommend the Summerbird nougat covered almonds and Galler mini bars, specially the white chocolate with walnut praline filling. Not only have both brands excelent quality products, but also gorgeous packaging. You will make Saint Nicholas really proud!
We usually buy these chocolates at Oschätzen Hamburg, but maybe you could find them in your favourite gourmet shop. Ask for them! You won’t regret it!
This weekend we had a great time in Hamburg. We made our first Christmas shopping, we visited two neighbourhoods we didn’t know, had dinner at Bullerei (quite a disappointment, I must say) and discover a great place for breakfast, Gnosa. But the best thing of our weekend was our hotel, The George.
This is one of my favourite restaurants in Hamburg. I’ve already told you about it here. This time we took my mother and she loved it too! The atmosphere is lovely, the decor is simple and rustic with that fancy French touch and, of course, the crepes are delicious!
Yesterday we spent the day in Hamburg with some friends. I have to admit that the first time I visisted it I didn’t like it at all, but it has somehow grown on me and everythime I go there I discover new places. So now I can say I really like it. Here you have some pictures I took with my BB:
First we went for a walk through the new areas of the river port. I’d love to have an appartment with those views.
