Discovering Malaysia…in pictures (part 1)

I’ve been in Malaysia now for over a week, enjoying the sun, the beach and the discovery of another culture, of different traditions…We met a lot of very nice people and I sometimes can’t believe how lucky I am…And I get to experience all of this with my husband 🙂 We’re flying back to Germany tomorrow…

Here are a few pictures (I’ll post more once we’re back home and I can play with them a little…)

Some were taken during our road trip, one during a river cruise and the others from a trip to a local market.

Frankfurt-Paris-Toulouse-Paris-Stuttgart…my week in images

Hello! First of all, let me tell you : “I missed you!” and I missed writing. I haven’t written/revised in a week and my fingers itch to get this story in shape.

From Monday through Friday, I lived out of my suitcase and was very busy work-wise. Here’s my week in pictures…

The weather is changing slowly…

I had a really wonderful weekend. On Friday evening, we went to a wine festival that´s tucked in the park right by our place. The food was delicious, the smells yummy and the wine delicious.

I revised a bit on Saturday…

My hubby participated in his first 10k race today. It was a lot of fun and I got to take lots of pictures…

We went to “our” restaurant to celebrate, the one where the owner–who is an older lady–knows us and stops by our table to chat a bit.

I am thankful and happy.

How was your weekend?

Photography – my other creative outlet…

I love taking pictures…capturing the light, a moment, seeing something through the lens and trying to render it… I also find it relaxing.

My husband, knowing this, got me another lens to play with for my birthday (thank you wonderful hubby!)

Here are a few I took over the weekend…

And back from vacations…(with lots of pictures :))

The Chemical Engineer and I had a wonderful time in the South of France and in Tuscany, saw gorgeous cities, relaxed, enjoyed a few drinks, a day on the beach, laughed…

And I used my camera. A lot. Here is a selection of pictures.

Hope you´re all doing well and enjoying the Summer!

Back from Russia…

After a week full of discoveries, I´m back in Germany.

During this trip to Moscow, I learned a lot, ate a lot, laughed a lot, and use my camera. A lot.

Hmm food…

 

Discovering Moscow…
Pushkin´s house

Oh, and I stood in front of the Bolshoi Theater, thinking about my manuscript and about my main character whose dream it was to dance there one day.

Bolshoi…

I´ll share some more of my pictures soon…:D Moscow is really a beautiful and interesting city!

So, tell me, how was your week?
