My boyfriend's birthday gift from me was a unspecified trip, and this weekend we're realizing it! He still doesn't know where we're going (Berlin!) but he will be forced to bring sunglasses and his iPod shuffle on the plane in order to keep it a secret as long as possible. I'm excited! Wish me luck!

Today I went to Louisiana Museum of Modern Art to see their summer exhibition Green Architecture for the Future which by the way is highly recommendable if you, like me, have an interest in architecture and city planning. However, I also had a peek at the museum's new acquisitions, and among others there was a gorgeous, abstract piece by Julie Mehretu. I love its visual layering and how it challenges the eye and its impressive size just adds to the madness. Of course I went home to research and personally I think her other works are no less gorgeous.

I'm such a terrible blogger. And I know this is such a lousy way to start an entry, but I just wanted tell that yes, I'm fully aware! The reason for starting this blog in the first place was the possibility it gives me to express myself in a different way than I do in my everyday life. It's about things that I've experienced and cherish, things that inspire me in relation to how I dress, how I live, how I think. And it's only when I feel like it. That some people want to read along is just a bonus, though the few readers I have are highly, highly appreciated.
But to pick up from where I left last time, I guess happiness did hit me like a train on track. So did exams. And in the middle of this lovely mess of spring happiness and exam stress I simply lost both time and inspiration to blog. Now, relaxing on the terrasse in Southern France it doesn't seem so foreign to me anymore. Practically everybody is at Roskilde right now but considering my situation right now I much prefer this. And let me tell you this: so much has happened sinc last time - yet again. There's now less than two months left until I'm leaving for Washington, DC (and I'm literally up to my neck in tedious paperwork). Afterwards I've planned an around-the-world trip including stays in Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand and Turkey (looking for insider tips, especially for Taiwan and Turkey seeing those stays aren't planned in detail - if you have any suggestions, I would be thrilled to hear them!).
And of course there are also tons of photographs I want to show you. The pictures in this post are from my last vacation.. My boyfriend and I went on a long weekend to Munich and it was such a wonderful trip we had. The city is truly endearing and so diverse in terms of what the city has to offer.. We saw Bayern München play in the Allianz Arena, ate in a Michelin star restaurant called Königshof, tried on traditional German costumes in a shopping mall, went to the farmers market Viktualienmarkt, visited the Maggi and Gucci flagship store (both ridiculous), ate absurd volumes of cake for breakfast at Starbucks and Bavarian sausages for lunch, had the largest dessert I've seen in my entire life and in between we went for long walks in a city filled up with beautiful green areas and quirky architecture. What's not to love? What I also just adore about this post is how it shows me in two rather untraditional outfits. Just don't count on seeing me sporting either of those again.
