A little update: On holidays, spinning classes and a happy new year

5 Aug

back from holidaysWe are baaaack! After two weeks in Spain we feel like we need holidays to get over our holidays. We have no energy at all (Running after our nephew and niece on the beach was harder tan expected),  we feel weird in Germany (Where are the bars? And the people? And the olive oil?) and we have so many things to do that we don’t know where to start (168 mails this morning. Seriously?). I have an article due on Monday and I haven’t even started, we haven’t posted since Friday, our house needs a serious make over… well, at least we have unpacked and the refrigerator is full.

We want to go back to our beloved/hated spinning clases this afternoon. Well, you know what? I’ve been attending these clases regularly for about three months now and I surprised my doctor: I haven’t lost a gram, nor have I gained any muscle. So what’s the point? I guess working out makes me go to sleep with a clear conscience. Please tell me that you work out and look like you don’t work out too. Or are you all like those people in Instagram with their amazing before/after pictures (Just four months? Really?) and #bodybyiza imposible exercises? Am I alone here?

Anyway, this week we have to work a little bit on the blog. We want a new lay out, new collaborations and brand new content. Because the new year is almost here with its resolutions! And yes, I’m talking about September. Am I the only one that feels that September is the new January? For me it is. So here we are: back from holidays, looking forward to Autumn. Every year it’s the same: tartan and velvet are back in September and so are my  thoughts about loosing weight, write more and have a (more)wonderful life. Let’s see what happens…

In the meantime stay tuned for some travel diaries!  I have made short videos! Now I have to fight with the video editor… I hope I win!!

Bye bye Spain!

6 Aug

bye bye

Today we are heading back to Germany. Sad face. Our Spanish holidays are over. Super sad face. We’ve had a great time with our family and friends and now it’s time to go back home and get used to our routine. We’ll miss the joyful days at the beach in Cádiz with our family, the vibrant life in Madrid, the reunions with old friends in the rooftops of Seville and the lazy days full of laughters in Málaga.
This time of the year usually seems to be a new beginning: back from holidays you are supposed to have the energy to face new challenges and projects. That’s how I feel every year for August and September are my January. Not this time, though. I really don’t know how I’m going to cope with work, that terrible German weather and the constant fear of missing important moments of our family and friend’s life. Any ideas? How do you get over this difficult back to reality time?

The island between three continents

25 Jul

cyprus

Wether you are reading this from your office, your sofa or a nice sunbed in a wonderful beach, I’m sure you will enjoy a little getaway to one of the most beautiful islands of the Mediterranean. Cyprus, the island of Aphrodite, lies sensually between three continents: Europe, Asia and Africa and faces the shores of Siria, Turkey and Lebanon. As you can imagine, its geographic proximity to such different cultures has made Cyprus the perfect culture kaleidoscopie.

Off to Spain!

19 Jul

let's go

Today we are leaving our little wooden house in Bremen and we are heading to our sunny back yard in Madrid! Yay! Weirdly enough, the weather has been amazing the last days here, so we will miss the lazy picnics and the walks by the river, activities that we love to do in this little town, but are only possible in those few days when the sun shines. Anyway, our friends and family wait for us in Spain. Crazy days in Madrid, long walks in the fantastic beaches of Cádiz  and lots of laughs in Málaga. We just can’t wait!

We will keep you updated via Twitter and Instagram. Hope to see you there!

I’ve always wanted to go on a cruise. Maybe it has to do with my childhood obsession with The love boat TV series (I secretly wanted to grow up and become just like Julie). I love the idea of enjoying life surrounded by the sea, sunbathing all day long sipping a fruity cocktail and visiting different cities without having to pack and unpack… and pack again. It’s perfect! But I don’t see myself in one of those huge cruise ships full of people that I don’t know and, let’s face it, that probably I won’t  like. I’m in my 30s. I know I’m antisocial by now.

SHA Wellness Clinic

Sometimes I dream about being a very healthy balanced yoga kind of person. But I’m not. I’m a quite nervous, chocaholic, Ihategoingtothegym person. But in my fantasies, when I’m that yogui I book my holidays in advance and go to a place like the SHA wellness clinic.

Seriously, this place is a dream. You can go there on holidays and a doctor tells you what to eat to loose some weight or just detox, they have the best proffesionals to help you quit smoking, sleep better or make you look, and apparently feel, younger (and I’m not only talking about your skin). And besides they have this pool. It’s a win-win.

Who knows? Maybe I surprise myself one they and become that kind of person… Look at that posture!

Let’s face it. Holidays are over.

8 Jan

Merry merry

We’re back in Germany. It rains. We get up at 7 a.m. again. We’re back in our gloomy offices. Let’s face it. Holidays are over. This year Christmas was particularly nice for both of us. It was a time for family, friends, tons of food and celebrations. Just like it should. We have chosen some of our phone pics to remember those wonderful times.
