After a pretty long time counting down the months and days until the 16th August, the day has finally arrived! We (my boyfriend and I) will be leaving this afternoon to Colombo, Sri Lanka’s capital, where we will start a two-week long trip around the island. Safaris, temples, elephant walks and unforgettable train journeys. These are just some of the things that we expect during our backpacking adventure. Are you ready to follow us?
It’s been quite a while since I sat down and wrote something for the blog… I know… And I am very angry at myself for not doing so…! However in my defence, I would like to say that I’ve been very busy at work and have tried to enjoy as much as I could the nice warm days in Hamburg and my two weeks of holidays in Spain 🙂 That’s why I decided to update you guys with all the fun stuff I have been up to while I have been away.
Some weekends ago I got into a plane and went to visit my boyfriend in Munich. It was a great trip and at last, I could walk around the city without it being pouring with rain (at least on Saturday)! 🙂 We had a really nice time showing my boyfriend’s sister and her boyfriend around and very much enjoyed finding new places near my boyfriend’s apartment. However, on Saturday night, we really didn’t know where to go to have dinner and we were not in the mood to walking too far. Therefore, we decided to try out a restaurant that we had found a few hours ago that looked very nice and had a really interesting concept: you have to grill your own meat!
A few months ago my boyfriend and I decided to plan a surf trip to Porto. We were very excited for this getaway as our last surf trip was almost one year ago. However, things didn’t go as we planned… Our ideal weekend was completely drenched. From the moment we landed to the moment we flew back to Hamburg, it didn’t stop raining, not even for an hour! Therefore, we had to cancel our surfing day – it was too dangerous – and decided to discover Porto underneath our almost broken umbrella.
I love travelling. This is something I told you in my first blog post. I always have the urge to fly or drive to somewhere new. We live in such a big world with so many amazing things to see that I can’t even bare thinking about not seeing them. Ok, yes, I know… I might not get to see everything but I want to try to do so.
