Hokkaido Shrine in Sapporo, Japan

In August 2017 I traveled to Hokkaido for the first time.



Recent dull endeavours

My boyfriend and I went to a frame shop in Bamberg to get my Audrey Kawasaki print framed:

I went to a hair salon and I got an Olaplex treatment! The hairdresser was so friendly, we had a long discussion about current hair trends (like balayage, dip-dying etc). My hair is so long I had to stand for her to cut it, or she would have had to kneel on the ground..

Here is Yuki sitting like a sphinx. ♥️<<

Gasthaus Hotel Wurm Röbersdorf

Gast Haus Wurm in Röbersdörf. I love this restaurant. The food is slightly more expensive than other German restaurants in our vicinity (not to say that makes it expensive – restaurants here are very cheap) but it’s always excellent. Also it’s decorated seasonally, and I like the seasonal menu.

I also like the lighting in the restaurant, a lot of traditional German restaurants are dark and gloomy.The reception! The decorations often change.This a cowslip syrup soda. Part of the seasonal menu.Steak & a salad.A burger from the seasonal menu.

Sandybel cupcake shop in Nuremberg 

A new cupcake shop opened up in Nuremberg a few months ago. I came across the shop when I googled “Nuremberg cupcakes” and found their Facebook page.

The shop is decorated very nicely. 💕Cupcakes in the display window. 🍰 Sandybel from the street.Lots of little canvases along the wall! 🎂 The cupcakes. 😍The cupcakes I bought! Cinnamon-apple, Red Velvet, Raspberry and Vanilla.

Reindeer in North Cape, Norway

Last August I went on a cruise of Norway. We took a tour around North Cape by car, searching for reindeer.
North Cape is often referred to as the northernmost point of mainland Europe, but it isn’t actually.. That is Cape Nordkinn. I guess North Cape is more scenic and attracts more tourists so it became a selling point for the area. Anyway – REINDEER!


I was quite lucky with these two images. I was shooting with Canon 50mm 1.4 (!), so I had to get close to take these. I tend to lose awareness of my physical presence when I’m looking through the viewfinder.
