I bet you didn’t expect white and black pictures in a post with such a happy, Summery title, but sometimes stormy weather, furious sea and lonely sand make the most photogenic background.
We have to thank our friends, who moved to London almost two years ago for the wonderful discoveries that we share with you in this post: a fantastic place for breakfast and our favourite views of London.
Our first visit to Stockholm was almost perfect. I guess that the brilliant sun that shined during the whole weekend helped us seeing the city through joyful glasses. We didn’t visit all the museums, we missed a few sights and we took it extremely easy, so this is not a post about the things you must do or the places you shouldn’t miss. This is just what we loved. If you enjoy slow paced weekends, eating a lot when travelling and staring speechless in front of a beautiful sunset, then keep reading…
Vesterbro is the hipster area of Copenhagen so that means it is probably the hipsterest place on Earth (apart from Austin, Texas). You would expect beards, plaid shirts and lots of bikes. Well, you’ll find thousands of bikes, but that’s normal in Copenhagen. However, no abundance of beards or obvious trends in sight. Oh no. They are cooler than that. Subtle, relaxed and extremely polite. That’s Vesterbro.
We knew the Thames. Who doesn’t? You go to London, you see the Thames. You pay no attention, though. There’s so much to see that the river just goes unnoticed. But last weekend we really experienced a new perspective of London where the river was the absolute focus. From Canada Water to Tower Bridge, we saw the Thames full of life, yet really quiet. Boats that sailed extremely fast mixed with slow river cruises. The cartoon-like skyscrapers of the City and the almost arrogant majesty of Tower bridge. The bustle and stillness that in a few minutes make the Thames look extremely different.
This is our last post about our Amsterdam getaway but we’ve saved the best for last. Let us tell you about our favourite area of this beautiful city.
Now that Paris Fashion Week is here, we can’t help but remembering March last year, when we pretended we were street style photographers. We had a blast during a long weekend during Paris Fashion week. We stayed at a very pretty boutique hotel in the Latin Quarter, ate the most amazing burgers here, escaped from the FW madness wandering through the beautiful streets and squares of Paris while enjoying the first signs of Spring and we even had a night out! We would love to come back to Paris in Autumn, though. Crispy mornings with freshly baked croissants, long walks along the Seine… Oh and a day trip to Versailles! We’ve never been there but we sure we would love it! Who else is dreaming about Paris?
Last year a friend took us to Primrose Hill. That was the first time we walked along St John’s Wood High Street . It was a lovely sunny day and we were surprised by all the little cafes, great shops and good looking families that we found in this street. It was like a whole new picture-perfect world. That kind of world you want to fit in. We wanted to be those skinny mums with gorgeous hair and cute children in pastel coloured strollers. We wanted to have a nice cup of coffe after a shopping spree in those beautiful boutiques. We wanted to casually pick a bunch of flowers from the little flower shops and meet our friends for brunch. Last weekend we spent a morning wandering through the streets of the neighborhood and yet again, we found St John’s Wood High Street so charming and lively. The skinny mums were there taking their children to the St. John’s Hospice Easter Fayre, the shops were still inviting and we even discovered new pretty places to have …
