Meet Me In Frankfurt

For a few sunny days, Frankfurt felt like the best city in the world. 
This happened when I spontaneously decided to fly there and visit my best friend. My happiness was over the roof the moment I got reunited with my brunette Halfie. Two girls, one city and a very patient boyfriend was the recipe for a fun vacation... I have to thank Adi for the pretty pictures and for hanging in there while we were joking and fooling around. ^_^
About Frankfurt there isn't much to say. It's a quiet city with simple people and a bit of an industrial touch. My favorite activities included sitting on the grass next to the river and looking at the people passing by, lunching/dinning with two of my favorite people in the world, instagramming the coffee with my Halfie while Adi was pretending he doesn't know us, ha ha :))
And this is only half of the fun stuff I got to do there... Things got even better once I received a wonderful surprise... Apparently my good karma followed me to Frankfurt. ^_^
It is amazing how things just fall into place when you least expect it...
I am a happy lucky Blondie. ^_^

Five minutes of tango in Buenos Aires

Hola, queridos!
Argentina was such a lovely experience and I was thrilled to go there. I blame my excitement on watching to many telenovelas while growing up. I think somewhere in my subconscious, I was hoping to see Mili right around the corner, ha ha. :P
Getting back to real life, my trip to Buenos Aires was so short I managed to take all my photos on one street.... One tiny, colorful, charming street called Caminito.  We went there hoping to see some beautiful Argentinians dancing tango, however we arrived too early. 
We were pretty much freezing (8 degrees Celsius, I definitely wasn't prepared for that), therefor we decided to have breakfast in this cute little place: Cafe Cultural Aleph.  The cozy atmosphere brought me back to my childhood, having tea and cake in my grandma's house. I think the vintage details, homemade pastries, tasty coffee and our lovely host made this place a successful family business. I hope to have something like this one day...
We did get a little bit of tango... For exactly five minutes, ha ha. Better than nothing I would say. 
As usual, I managed to make some new random friends... That came very easy because Argentinians are sweet and friendly people and they become even friendlier when you speak their language. :))
I will end this post with a restaurant recommendation. The way I see it, Juana M.   is a place where the love for food meets the love for art. I was very impressed by the tasteful interior design, the delicious food and local wine selection and by how many people were having dinner there spreading good vibes everywhere. 

I wish you all a fun/good night!
Hugs, kisses and good vibes.

It's Rio, baby!

I just love it when I have more time to spend in a new destination, especially if I wished for it for so long.
My trip to Rio was divided into two parts.... First came the sunny days, perfect time for the beach and a very good made up reason to buy new swimming suits. :)) For all the fashion lovers out there, you should check out this brand Salinas, so so pretty. And of course, don't forget about Havaianas. ;)
While walking along the beach and sitting in the warm the sand in Copacabana, I had 3 revelations:
1. I need to learn Portuguese
2. I should start surfing
3. Can I just live here on the beach forever?
I got to tell you that brazilians are gorgeous people. You might expect they all look like Adriana Lima and Christiano Ronaldo... And some actually do... But most of them are normal people with normal bodies still looking absolutely amazing. I was so fascinated. How do they do that? Turns out their secret is a high level of confidence and it is also contagious. 
In terms of going out, we found this nice place called Belmonte. We got there pretty early in the evening and the restaurant was already packed. There were all these people (the gorgeous ones I told you above) standing outside the terrace, drinking beer and laughing. Such an incredible atmosphere. We waited more than a while for the table, but it was worth it. The food was amazing! Fyi, in Brazil, 5 minutes waiting actually means 30 minutes. :P
For our last day in Rio we had exciting plans: taking a long tour of the city, see Christ the redeemer and other fun, touristy stuff... However, it was cloudy and rainy the whole day... Obviously, paragliding and hang gliding were also out of the question and I got bummed about that :(.  So what other option we had options when the weather was not our friend, but we were in town for the Olympics? We went to see a (men) basketball game, of course. Australia vs Spain was a great match, we ended up having lots of fun. Too bad we couldn't stay for the final (Serbia vs US)... That was alright though, because we got to meet the Serbian basketball team on the flight back... But that is a totally different story...
More stories this time and less photos, hope you still enjoyed ^_^
Hugs, kisses and good vibes Rio style
