Day 3

Traveling. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll still know it. I love to travel and I do it often. But there’s a difference between traveling and sightseeing. You travel with your heart, you won’t see all the attractions, you’ll see around the corner : the mystery streets, the lovely little tea-rooms or the children playing football on a meadow. You won’t see the streets with the shopping centers, you prefer the market…if you are a traveler not a tourist.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only one page.

Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.

Day 2

I’m afraid of… I’m really afraid of it… I’m afraid of forgetting things. I’ll always remember my holidays, excursions and just simple moments. But what’s when I’m 80? Will I remember the sun rise by the monument valley? Will I remember what I’ve done on the xx.xx.xxxx?

I don’t think so… And that makes me sad. But maybe If i see the photos, I’ll remember.

I’m taking my photos with the Nikon D5200. It’s perfect. I don’t have any time to photographing every day, but when I’m in the holidays, I do and I really like it…

A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.

Day 1

Red is the color of extremes. Red is the color of passionate love. Red is the color of seduction.Red is the color of violence. Red is the color of danger. Red is the color of anger. Red is the color of adventure.

Ruby Tuesday

Maxfactor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Ruby Tuesday is a blue based blood red color, the kinds which will make your skin look brighter and lighter and your teeth whiter! (That rhymed) It is a deep shade and possibly not for the faint hearted!

L’eau de moi…

Be unforgettable. 

Your fragrance will accompany you everywhere. The people around you won’t forget fragrance. Even the smell it, they’ll think about you. Your friends, your colleague, your kids, or the guy from last night.

L’eau de moi, c’est „Sì“ de GIORGIO ARMANI. Je l’aime.

There are many people, which don’t like it. But for me it’s simply perfect. This is a beautiful fragrance, it smells great from the bottle and on the skin. Its sweet but its sophisticated, its grown up but its not old. Its a very good one to go for. It also lasts , and I think it would be good as a day to night fragrance.

Giorgio Armani perfume „Si“ is for a strong and self-conscious women. It has a presence full of elegance and charisma, a broadcast you will not forget. She says „yes“ to life with all its possibilities, is to herself and all facets of her personality. These different facets of a woman also represents the Giorgio Armani perfume Si. Sensibility and rationality; Emotion and strength; Intimacy and size. All these contradictions are expressed.

Top Notes: Sicilian bergamot, Mandarin, Blackcurrant liqueur

Heart Notes: Rose de Mai, Neroli, Egyptian jasmine, Freesia

Base Notes: Patchouli, Woods, Amber, Orcanox, Vanilla

Sì ai sogni. Sì alla liberta. Sì alla vita. Sì al silenzio. Sì alla seduzione. Sì all‘ emozione. Sì alla follia. Sì al amore. Sì a un nuovo inizio. Sì alla serenità. Sì alla forza. Sì a noi due. Sì a me stessa.

„Sì“ Giorgio Armani

Everything has an end…

Yes also the nicest and best trip ever…

I’m back at home. First of al I went to bed and I slept 16 hours! I’ve a totally jet lag. But after this trip I know that a jet lag has his advantages (have a look at the previous posts). Then I’ve ordered a photo book from apple and I made a clip with the pictures of the whole trip. I hope you’ll like it:

I can’t say what I’ll to now… I’ve got some Ideas but I haven’t decided yet…. See you the next time =)

Last but not least…

San Francisco…

Wow wow wow. Just now I realized that i’m really here in the USA… Everything wa spike in a dream!!!

We spent three days in San Francisco.  San Francisco is a city, where wealth and poverty, history and modern are close together. Wealth and Poverty? Yes! We had rented a flat in a skyscraper (picture) and in the same street, there was a homeless kitchen. History and Modern? The skyline is very modern and very interesting to me, because I’m living in the mountains… The Alcatraz Island is historical. Even I couldn’t go on the Island (we didn’t reserve a ticket in advance), it was my absolutely highlight of San Francisco. Not the Golden Gate Bridge? No! Since I’ve been a little girl, I’ve been an addict: I’ve never watched educational TV programs, but when there was a program about a prison island… Ooow I was definitely in a trance… Once I had a presentation about Alctraz at school. That was so easy! I didn’t need any preparation. I just spoke and spoke.  So that’s enough. Here are my pictures:

Seriously the Golden Gate Bridge isn’t bad, not at all:

So that was my trip to the USA. It was perfect… I hope you like it and see you to my next trip or whatever… Bye, bye xoxo.

Taller than the trees?

I took a walk into the woods and came out taller than the trees.                                                                                           – Henry Thoreau

Taller then the trees? Taller then these trees? I think that’s impossible. The sequoias in the Sequoia National Park are giants! It’s such amazing, how high they are and what the nature can build… We didn’t have nice weather. It snowed. But that didn’t matter. I actually think that was better then sun. It was an experience and now I can say : “ I’ve seen american snow“ =) I had all the possible climates without hail (fortunately) in two weeks. So let’s have a look on my pictures :

Snow, Sequoia National Park

General Sherman Tree

The General Sherman Tree it is the largest known living tree on earth. It has a height of 83.8 metros.  I couldn’t take a picture of the whole tree. It was to big. There is a tourist in front of the tree as a comparative.

Than we continued to the coast. There we ate the dinner and could marvel at a fantastic sunset. There were so many see lions in Santa Cruz.

Next and last stop : San Francisco

You’ve fascinated me. You have took my heart by storm. You’re so intangible perfect.

I really felt in love with you , fabulous LAS VEGAS!

Welcom to fabulous LAS VEGAS

Welcome to fabulous LAS VEGAS

About LAS VEGAS :

Mhmmm… I think these city should definitely be on your list „10 cities that I wanna visit before I die“. Definitely.  Why? I can’t describe it. You have to feel it. The people here are so friendly and helpful. Everyone is in a good mood and wanna have party. Even you lost your money with a slot machine or at the poker table.  It doesn’t matter. You’ll have the trip of your life! And nobody can steal you these memories…

Other than parties there’s a lot to visit. Visiting hotels? Strange? No, not in Las Vegas. For example the „New York“.  The hotel looks like the skyline of New York with the skyscrapers and the Statue of Liberty. (Not that I’ve been there already, but it’s on my list „10 cities that I wanna visit before I die“.) And the strangest thing at all : There’s a roller coaster in the hotel!!!

Thank you JET LAG !

Thank you jet lag. I’ve never been so happy about having a jet lag, but in this vacation it’s a blessing. I would miss those great moments without:

After a real american breakfast in a country restaurant we visited the Bryce Canyon. The hotels were fully booked, but in these early hours no on was around. And they all missed the sunrise in the Bryce Canyon. There were only a few photographers. It was so magical. Unbelievable. Every second I took pictures with my eyes. They’ll remember me, when I’m older.

Next stop Las Vegas! See you on my next post 😉

In the right place at the right time

The first time in my whole life I’ve the feeling to be in the right place at the right time.

If I wouldn’t come from Europe, I wouldn’t have a jet lag, and If I wouldn’t have this jet lag, I might miss this moment, this amazing,wonderful, gorgeous sunrise.

Sunrise Monument Valley

But no! I was in the right place at the right time. Oww it was incredible!

Monument Valley is worth visiting. We did a round trip with our rented car. It was great to be so close to these giants. In the USA near every tourist attraction is a visitor centre. There you can get some information. Time flew and we had to go on. The worst thing about traveling is leaving places like these behind you. Take a deep breath at the end, close your eyes and imagine a picture in your head. So you’ll never forget the place.

We had a picnic at lunch. In the afternoon we visited Lake Powell. I was so close to the abyss. Every time I’m stunned what the nature have to offer. At a time when cities grow up vastly, new technologies are a dime a dozen and the people just wanna live luxurious, we have to safe our planet. It’s unique. Safe the planet!

We drove on the rest of the day. I’ve done unforgettable impressions.
