Source
Happy Friday amig@s! We are about to take the plane to Spain. During the next two weeks, we will be visiting my family and friends. I'll make sure I take enough pics to create great content for you guys upon my return to Bonn.

In the meantime, please be safe and enjoy the beginning of the Summer.

See you in two weeks! Thanks for reading. 

Long Weekend In The Belgian Coast


Happy Thursday amig@s! I hope your week is going well.

This past weekend, we officially kicked off our Summer vacation driving to the beach. Middelkerke, in the Belgian coast, was our destination. Our Airbnb apartment was love at first sight and the view from the terrace was probably the highlight of the weekend -it totally made up for the not so good weather :( 

We arrived at Middelkerke on Saturday afternoon. The Beer Festival was already in full swing, Naturally after we settled in the apartment, we hit the streets to see what it was all about. Great food and music everywhere!








On Sunday we headed to the beach right after breakfast. It was so nice to see Lucia running around and playing with the sand for the first time!We took like 400 pictures ;)





On Monday it rained pretty much all day. Bummer. Anyway, we stayed in and chilled. At around 5pm the weather cleared up and we drove to Ostend, another beach town nearby. We took a lovely walk by the harbour and its scenic promenade. Soul music legend Marvin Gaye lived a few years in this town, where he wrote 'Sexual Healing.'





We came home right in time to watch the sunset from our terrace. Lucía had her veggies and Michael and I made a toast to our little family and the milestones we are reaching together.



Tuesday morning, dad and daughter made a quick run to the beach. I took this pic from our terrace :)


We would return to Bonn that afternoon. It was nice and refreshing to feel the sea breeze and get to know Belgium better.

I hope you guys enjoyed the pics. Thanks for reading!

Next stop: Spain!!!!!!!! :) 

Farmers' Market In Bonn

Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend.

Going through my previous posts, I realized I didn't share much about the town I call home for more than three years now: Bonn (Bethoveen's home town and the former capital of the Federal Republic of Germany, until the country's reunification in 1990). 

The Farmer's Market is one of my favorite places. It's located right downtown, in Marktplazt (pretty self-explanatory, right?) The market is flanked by the old City Hall -a gorgeous building built back in the 18th century- and lots of cafes, restaurants and shops.

I love to walk around the stalls and get inspired by the fresh, high quality produce. Especially now. We want to expose Lucia to a wide array of fruits and vegetables.

There are also food trucks offering soups, juices or Bradwürste (the German version of the American hot dog) and fries. We usually grab something to eat there on Saturdays if we are in the area running errands.

Enjoy the pics, amig@s. Thanks for reading!

Happy Friday amig@s! What a tragic week. Words just fall short to express the sadness and impotence about the Orlando's massacre. My prayers go to the victims' families and loved ones.
