Berlin, Koszalin, Dublin

Hello again, sweet blogger friends! I didn’t post for a month, because I had a very hectic time – the long promised travel pictures to be shown now! I wanted a blog’s layout change, still evolving – new layout, new content! The blog is my personal diary, of course – the pics seem small, but it’s to keep track of where I went, not a fashion statement. Preparing a compact suitcase for such a trip is tricky.

First trip, March. Germany, Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Hungary, Czech Republic.

Title of the post: I tried to be funny with where I was, with the three cities ending in LIN :)

I love my “Rally Holidays“, as I call them. 4,000 km with a car around Europe for two weeks. I needed to officially register my Masters’ diploms and signature in Germany, so I flew from Dublin to Frankfurt, where I got the car. Nice revisiting places I once lived in. Some countries were new to me, some not.

Frankfurt am Main. I have similar suitcases in the entrance of my main flat, so I loved this wall in Frankfurt am Main - Mar 11, 2014

Friendly outfits :)

Thanks again for the nice birthday wishes! I said it lasted a week! I love it so!

I was looking for a nice place for pictures for a while and help to take them. Just got to know that a friend has a degree in photography – hence the post’s title! So, I gathered the historic location, myself, my friend’s talent and patience10 minutes and 10 pictures – the most I agreed to “bother” my friend. I’m embarrassed to ask for favors.

This is the result during the last week of January

Bewdley Museum

So, for a beginning, I liked the pictures. I wrote on my previous post:

Hope you all have a great week with many many smiles around you!

To keep the “tradition” on Jan 30th I was on birthday mood, and wore this:

Nice MIssoni dress, vest - my design
