Rome - Galleria Spada

Near the Tiber and Ponte Sisto in Rome, hidden in small streets and easily passed by, is the Galleria Spada located in a very grand and beautiful Palazzo. It holds an art collection especially dedicated to Old Masters and Italian art. There are several rooms to explore and the paintings are arranged in a traditional way. The cabinet feels historical and that is also the intention of this place, one feels like fallen out of time like in many sights in Rome. Outside in a small backyard you can also explore Borrominis secret garden. The Galleria Spada is a secret jewel in Rome for people who do not like mass tourism.

Limburg an der Lahn

In the middle of April I spent an afternoon in Limburg an der Lahn. The city is very small, it seems everyone knows everyone. A few historic streets have been preserved and I really liked this romantic old town. These are very small historic streets where in the evening the restaurants, taverns and bars are open, during the day many small shops and boutiques let the people rummage and the small places and houses that have been renovated and where you live instead of letting them expire , Scenic, the region around the city is just beautiful. You drive one hour from Wetzlar, my current place of work by train to Limburg. The route runs through meadows, fields, always along the river Lahn along the picturesque waterfront and you even pass some tunnels. The landscape with many valleys, valleys, hills fascinates me. The half-timbered houses in this region as well as the church buildings are often painted very colorful and there are other forms of decoration to recognize. Limburg is definitely worth an afternoon to explore ...

Weilburg

On the Easter weekend I was in Weilburg for a few hours. The town is situated on a mountain surrounded by a steep rock face and water in a valley. On top of the mountain sits a great Renaissance and Baroque complex. It is completely preserved and inside the premises are to be visited with complete furniture. Especially recommended is a guided tour of the many wings of the castle, there are real treasures and an orangery with deceptively painted wall tiles and very beautiful Renaissance murals. The facility is located in the middle of the city very nice. Also recommended is the visit to the Mining Museum and City Museum opposite. They have many old first editions and in the Mining Museum, a great deceptively real tunnel has been created underground, which leaves one astonished.

Island of Djerba - Houmt Souk

When I visited Tunisia, I made a trip to the city of Houmt Souk to the Grand Bazaar. It is worth seeing and contemplative there. Of course there is a lot of market activity, but it was fascinating. I bought two gold rings and an embroidered silk scarf. Overall a very successful afternoon. I have found that I can act and discuss quite well, at least I got a salt rose from the Sahara given and my things much cheaper than my fellow travelers ...

Quedlinburg

I drove with my boyfriend to the small city of Quedlinburg. It is one of the most famous old towns in Germany with a center from the middle ages, surrounded by hills and still a lively city. I always dreamed about moving there, living in a small house in the old town, having a small photo store and shop in one of the houses. It is a dreamy city, inhabited by many artists, creatives and inspirational people.

South Korea - The Palace Gardens of Anapji

When I was in Gyeongju with my sister in Korea in December, we also visited the old palace complex of Anapji. It was a very cold but sunny lunch. As befits a Korean palace complex, there is an artificial lake and close proximity to nature. Hills, bamboo groves, rock springs - and, of course, beautiful pagodas where guests have been welcomed.

Leipzig - Old Town Hall & station

This imposing building is also located in Leipzig. The castle-like, renaissaisanceähnliche building is called the New Town Hall and is in fact from the year 1905, so historicist. Nevertheless, a beautiful building with lots of details. The towering tower is also a focal point in the city center. The other two pictures show the powerful facade of the Leipzig main station from 1915. It is really huge and big, but the halls and many tracks speak for themselves. I really recommend every tourist to look at the central station from the inside. There are beautiful old halls, a big shopping center on the lower floors and you really have a special old flair in the building.

Leipzig - Buildings of the Old Town

Leipzig's city center is just beautiful. I am approached almost daily by tourists, where this or that is to be found. Especially beautiful is the architecture of the houses, merged with many modern houses next door. Hardly any other city has restored its buildings of the turn of the century and earlier as beautifully as Leipzig.

Waldenburg Palace

Here are some impressions from Schloss Waldenburg. This is a beautiful romantic castle near Chemnitz, near Altenburg. A small town with a stately home on a mountain. The castle was once very magnificent, but time has left the first traces here - although the construction was re-equipped in the early 20th century.

Leipzig - Easter

My Easter was nice. I spent my time with Mr. T., this year we did not drive up north to our families, but were traveling in and around Leipzig. Through work and my university, we preferred to stay at home. My parents came over for a moment, brought me orange tulips and also made me smile. At Easter I got sweet things, that makes me happy anyway. And on Easter Sunday, we drove through the countryside as we did on a Sunday, and looked at cities, culture, and castles. I love that. Well, wonderful days that make me shine. The next few weeks you will get to see two more shoots and pictures of Schloss Waldenburg and the Altes Museum in Berlin. What would you first welcome?

Turkey - Antalya

For my readers a few pictures from the port of Antalya. The wonderful view of the harbor we enjoyed on a wonderful terrace of a restaurant. You climbed a few steps up the cliffs to enjoy one of the most beautiful views in the cool shade. The food in the restaurant was also terrific. You can also see in the pictures that the whole city is built on the steep coast. The sea is always a bit far, one of the few descents to the water is the harbor. In the next few days I will work on some pictures - including the city, the hotel and my husband on the beach. So dear readers, be prepared for a true Turkish flood of images;)
