“In fair Verona, where we lay our scene.” — Romeo and Juliet (such a cliché title)

And here, ladies and gents, are the Verona pictures I considered most worthy of being shown. Also, lovely Francisca from Stories of Beautiful Things tagged me to do the Liebster Blog award (thank you so much). I won't continue it myself, since I'm nowadays much more into the Instagram community than the blogger world, but I thought it would be a great opportunity to collect a few random facts about me. I hope these are fun to read about :)

1. I love cemeteries, I am fascinated by their rich history and unique atmosphere, they are like cities of the dead. Especially huge ones like the Viennese Central Cemetery or Père Lachaise in Paris.
2. I can bark like a dog (a tiny chihuahua, but still). Sometimes when I hear a dog outside, I bark back at him. I'm not even joking.
3. Perfection is boring.
4. I am really bad at estimating someone's age.
5. I'm super clumsy, I always cut myself with paper or run into door frames with my rib bone first.
6. Johnlock is my pressure point (notice the hint), always will be. I have such a weak spot for these dorks and their relationship.
7. I hate mayonnaise! The smell when you wash a plate that has remains of mayonnaise on it and it mixes with hot water, is one of the most disgusting smells I can think of.
8. That sounds incredibly stupid, but I cannot stand having something wooden (like the sticks of ice lollies) in my mouth, I find it just as horrible as nails scratching on a blackboard.
9. I love coniferous forests.
10. I am addicted to Tumblr and Instagram.
11. I've been listening to Ghost by Ella Henderson and Chandelier by Sia on repeat for the last week.

And here are Francisca's questions:
1. When did you start blogging, and why?
That was back in 2010, I got more and more inspired by people's personalities and how they let them flow into creative work, so I tried it myself and haven't regretted it every since.
2. What is your favourite blog post?
I don't have one.
3. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Hm. Probably in the UK, I love the English language and the history (a lot). Or maybe in France or Italy... I really don't know.
4. What was the last film you watched?
Coco avant Chanel.
5. What are you currently reading?
Tatiana and Alexander, which is the second book of the Bronze Horseman trilogy by Paullina Simons. (well, actually I finished it yesterday, but I haven't decided what to read next, decisions, decisions...)
6. What is your favourite colour?
Blue (also black, grey and everything pastel).
7. Are you a dog person or a cat person?
A cat person :) I love dogs as well, but I think I slightly prefer cats, because their personality is so similar to my own. They are loving and tender creatures, but when they need time and space for themselves, they take it.
8. What is your favourite season?
Season 1. Just joking :) Autumn, closely followed by Spring. Winter is too long and Summer tends to be too hot for my taste.
9. Name one food you can't live without.
Vegetables (I can't even pick a single kind).
10. What is your favourite band/singer?
Florence + the Machine and The Smiths.
11. Describe yourself in three words!
Compassionate, thoughtful, creative.

Hello, everyone. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for September (can you believe it). I came back from Paris yesterday night and finally got around to editing the pictures from my Italy trip with my friend P., who has an Instagram account and is a fantastic singer. Paris was magical as usual, I made it to Van Gogh's masterpieces at Musée d'Orsay and paid my tribute to Oscar Wilde at Père Lachaise this time. As I didn't take my DSLR with me, my Paris photos are up on Instagram, but I will probably post them on the blog as well. Apart from travelling stories there is not much to tell, as soon as September brings us colourful leaves and (hopefully) golden sunshine, I need to start studying for upcoming exams at the end of the month. Enjoy your evening!

Hello everyone! I sincerely hope you've all been enjoying your week thus far. This is a somewhat random post featuring yet another not really spectacular but truly comfortable (and effortless) outfit with yet another kimono (I love them to pieces). I recently returned from Italy with a full heart and a full memory card, so stay tuned for many Venice and Verona impressions. I hope I'll have time and inspiration to go through and edit them very soon. Masterful procrastinator that I am, the last week has mainly been spent reading (a lot) instead of planning the next semester. I'll start with literature courses in addition to history and I'm positive it will work out well. I'm going to visit a friend in Paris next week, but I guess I'll just instagram what catches my eye in this wonderful city which never let go of my heart. I can't wait to make a return and renew all the beautiful memories.

If you don't know her blog yet, make sure to check it out- if you like mine, chances are you'll adore hers even more :) The pictures above are some impressions of our wanderings which I posted on Instagram.  I finished my three-week Spanish course and am now enjoying some quiet days at home before heading to Italy by train next week. Adventurous times ahead!
