Nomnomnom Bremen Christmas marked.

The Christmas marked was of course full of delicious foods. The first thing we had was poffertjes (Dutch mini pancakes), with butter and confectioners sugar. Nomnomnom 😋

Another thing we had to try was the famous cafe Knigge.

°

It took forever to choose between all the gorgeous cakes. It was absolutely decadent.

°

°

°

Unfortunately I couldn’t take a lot of pictures of the interior because of the customers. It was an old world style of luxury. Warm colours, marble, small alcoves and a wait staff that was amazing. Everything was simply decadent.

°

°

After some cake we needed some fast food. Hash brown with apple sauce (For my mom).

°

°

Deep fried cheese and cauliflower. Yum

°

°

And for the first time I tasted Churros 😯 I was instantly addicted. 😋

°

°

And last but not least *drumroll* Hachez chocolate. 🍫🍫🍫

°

°

They even had real cocoa beans as decorations.

Two storeys of mostly chocolate and some tea. For a chocolate addict it was fabulous!!!

Bremen Cathedral #photography

Bremen Cathedral (German: Bremer Dom or St. Petri Dom zu Bremen), dedicated to St. Peter, is a church situated in the market square in the center of Bremen, in northern Germany.

°

°

°

In general, Bremen Cathedral is a medieval building. The oldest visible structures are the two crypts. The last parts built in romanesque style and in sandstone were the lower storeys of the western façade and the western towers. Since the late 1220s, vaults and walls were erected in bricks, partly hidden by sheets of sandstone. Only the outer wall of the southern row of chapels shows unhidden bricks. St Peter’s is one of the largest historic brick structures in Europe, but it comprises too many stone structures to be subsumed to Brick Gothic. During the great restoration of 1888 to 1901, the western towers and most of the western façade were rebuilt relatively close to previous structures. The crossing tower was a new addition, using the medieval crossing tower of Worms Cathedral as an example. The roofs above the transepts and the northern aisle were redesigned. Source

Photographer/Cover Model Alen H. #interview

Please give a warm welcome toTell us a bit about yourself

Hi, my name is Alen, also known as Jack. Born in May, 15, 1994. Born in Trieste but having Bosnian rootes.

°

°

Have you always wanted to become a Photographer/Model?

– Have I? Not really no… Well I worked few times as model when I was younger, but I was never up to modeling honestly. Photography was always something I was attracted to. The problem is that I was always attracted to cars and speed also. When I traveled to Sofia I decided to merge photography passion and car passion. I am not really a materialistic guy, so I never wanted to do a job that would make me earn a lot of money. I always preferred to do a job – that is not a job, that would make me happy and give me the chance to share it with other people. About modeling, well that came out easily with photography. People as friends, clients etc.. they were all asking me: “Why you don’t pose on your own pictures? Your face is perfect, looks like an actors face”. That’s mainly the reason why I started “kinda modeling”.

°

°

Do you have any advice to give?

– Advices… Well there are some I can give for new models and photographers… But the best one is to live your life by your own rules. Don’t hesitate and always try something new. Never be afraid to change. Be kind always to everyone.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I don’t really have any hopes for the future. I mean, I’m a guy who really lives the moment, the present. I just wish to share my passion with everyone as long as its appreciated.

°

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Something I can say to my followers is: Thank you so much for your love! Stay humble and enjoy life 😀Check out Alen’s pictures on

Isola Bella Garden #wanderlust

After the amazing interior of the palace comes the spectacular garden.

The garden is full of flowers and exotic plants of great rarity, which grow thanks to the particularly mild climate of the Borromean Gulf.

.

.

.

.

Everything on the island has been designed to create a scenic effect, including the “Theatre” constructed at the end of the superimposed terraces, dominated by a statue of a Unicorn, the heraldic emblem of the Borromeos, which is flanked by statues representing Nature and Art.

.

Unfortunately we just didn’t have enough time to explore the garden.

The huge, extraordinary garden is further decorated with ponds, fountains and a plethora of statues dating from the second half of the 17th century.

The white peacocks that wander over the manicured lawns add their grace to this enchanting spot.

I must admit I thought the white peacocks would look more impressive. They looked a bit scruffy.

Adjacent to the palace and the gardens is part of the village which used to occupy the island, with some restaurants and souvenir shops. You can see the shops through the foliage.

.

.

Here’s a little panorama from the front of the palace.

The palace hides its treasures behind a simple looking front.

.

.

Next blog post will be of the two last Borromero islands we visited that day.

Isola Bella 2 #wanderlust

It’s time to explore the lower level of the castle.

Passing classic sculptures and funny ones.

.

On the lower floor of the pallazo you see the cobblestoned shell grottos, embellished with black and white rock and tuff stone chips. Source

The view is towards the Fisher island.

The stones on the floor is shiny due to lots of use.

.

Another beautiful ceiling.

The flowers are painted on marble.

The tapestry gallery is beautiful.

I really wish we’d had more time there. After the tapestry gallery we continue out to the amazing garden. That will be the next blog post.
