My weekend

IMG_2161IMG_2156

My weekend  was so different somehow haha! Like normally when I am alone at home I’d spent lots of time inside doing nothing… especially when it’s 30 + °C outside – pretty reasonable, huh? But this time I did a lot of stuff..

On friday evening I went to Lottes (ex-) place to help her renovate a bit. This is where I spotted the beautiful flowers btw *_* Also, isn’t the quality astonishing for an iPhone 4?

When we finally finished we went back to mine, we had the place to ourselves, made a delicious veggie lasagne with cheeeeese (vegan ofc) and then watched “How to be single”. I watched it with Anna before and it was so hilariously funny I watched it again with Lotte.

On saturday I thought I could finally take a look at a climbing centre in Leipzig… I went climbing every other day in Bristol and haven’t used my gear ever since. Anyway, every circumstance spoke against going on that day, it was frickin hot outside, it was getting late, I could have gone the next day, I had no-one to go with, I would have had to cycle for 30 min. BUT I just couldn’t stand that feeling of “doing nothing and feeling bad about it” anymore, so I JUST WENT. On my own, and yeah, it was fun! I bouldered a bit, inspected the centre (which is amazing) got 3 decent blisters and went back after like 40 minutes 😀

Later Lotti and I wanted to meet up for a picnic in the park where a free open air classical music festival took place, but when I arrived it started to POUR, I was completely soaked after 3 seconds, no kidding!!! But it was warm and utterly energizing, such a good feeling!! Drenched like after a good shower I cycled back home and had my sushi without company haha, but the little trip was worth it anyway!

My hands, or rather the open blisters, hurt so much but thats part of the deal. They’ll heal quickly. Today I cleaned my room, got rid of unused stuff, sorted my wardrobe and then cooked dinner for my family – wedges with a stir fry (pak choi, broccoli, mushrooms, onion, soy sauce)  and guacamole *_* They loved it and so did I, now we are gonna enjoy a quite and cozy evening with reading and cuddling.

Résumé: that night was kinda hard. Meditating was good and enjoyable but fasting and staying awake all night at the same time can be sligthly frustrating! I guess this is why I had some fruits at 4 am, it’s been 28 hours without food and I read that one meal is permitted during Shivaratri 😀 But anyway, I made it and so did Anna! As soon as the sun rose I made myself breakfast and we watched Game of Thrones and later on Totoru, but I fell asleep after like 30 mins and woke up 2 hours later? Both of us actually haha 😀

The pictures above are in front of the zoo we have in our town. It was too late and too expensive for us (13 € :O ) to get in, but the scenery was still so nice and spring-like 🙂

Now after dinner (I had lentil&spinach dahl with roasted potatoes, broccoli and tomatoes – so delicious!) and our video-watching ritual I could really see some more episodes of GoT 😀 So we will! Have a cozy night <3

Sun on my face

_1250404I love it! I love the warmth and the sun on my back, legs, feet, face, sculp, arms etc! I love being able to lay outside carelessly because it’s just so warm that you could spend hours in the park or on the beach in your fluttery dress. The warmness of the blanket from beneath, the tingling sunrays from above. I love it and I will come back to it ☼

We are gonna leave Portugal for a bit. Maybe it’s just a short visit home or even a longer period in Germany. Either way, we are gonna hit the road again soon. Til then, Porto pleases us with summer-like weather, begging us to stay, and I’d definitely come back. But home’s nice as well and there are some projects in the planning, which are easier to do/start from home (some parts at least). So stay tuned and look forward to some Berlin-Inspiration ❤
