VSCO Roundup #43 – September 2018 part 2 – Paris

23.01.2019

Another great thing happened in September: we spent a weekend in Paris with friends. By train the trip only takes about an hour longer than to Berlin – I really don’t know why we haven’t gone there earlier. I had been in Paris once before, about 25 years ago. (I feel very old now.) At the time I had just learned a tiny bit of French and was able to say “Monsieur Cartier entre la salle de séjour.” Turns out, I can barely say any more than that today. All those years of French at school for nothing. Merde.

We strolled through Le Marais, drank beer, watched Julien Baker play a show, were happy about the rainbow crosswalk in the queer quarter, made photos with fingers atop the Louvre pyramid (which will never be published), held hands near the Seine, looked at the Eiffel tower, and wondered why Paris is called the city of love, when it should clearly be the city of piss smell.

VSCO Roundup #43 – September 2018 part 1

18.01.2019

January 2019 is almost over and I’m still stuck in September 2018. :-(

But it’s nice to look back especially to that month, because so many great things were going on. I even had to split the post since there are so many photos.

September started with a canoe trip on the river Niers. Next was an evening of “Kegeln”. It’s a bit like bowling, but not really. The most important things about Kegeln: it happens in the basement of shady pubs, everything is brown and straight from the 60s, you drink a lot, you have sore muscles the day after, and it’s a lot of fun. A weekend after that we did the Rapha Women’s 100. Women all over the world ride 100 kilometers on their bikes that day – and share the photos and experiences with the same hashtag. (Here’s our Instagram post including the route.) Then there was the Way Back When Festival (which was quite disappointing this year) and a workshop for mushroom picking (which was very nice despite not finding even one edible mushroom and both of us stepping into huge piles of dog shit).

VSCO Roundup #42 – August 2018

16.11.2018

In August we went hiking at Wilder Kaiser in Austria. It was quite hard and at some points even scary, but also absolutely wonderful and amazing. And after that: a weekend at the North Sea in the Netherlands with friends.

VSCO Roundup #41 – July 2018

25.10.2018

July. It was hot. Very hot. And I didn’t do a lot besides sitting in front of a fan in a darkened room. But I did a trip by boat on the Baldeneysee in Essen and I went to see the Marina Abramovic exhibition in Bonn. On the museum’s rooftop was a huge playground with swings and tons of Lego (the latter one officially being an installation by Olafur Eliasson).

VSCO Roundup #39 – May 2018

23.08.2018

In May I first travelled East to Typo Berlin, then West to the Netherlands (yet again), but this time by bicycle. We did a part of the Rheinradweg, which is a bicycle path following the Rhine from its beginning (somewhere in Switzerland) to its end (the Dutch North Sea).

VSCO Roundup #38 – April 2018

22.08.2018

Here comes April. You’ll meet the two cutest guys in the world: Nino & Fritzi. They do have their own Instagram account by the way, so make sure to follow for pawsome cat content. Also, there was a trip to the beach in the Netherlands again. We had great weather, barefoot walks on the beach, ice cream and beer, and I had the chance to try my new kite. Fantastic weekend! A Place To Bury Strangers played a gig in Dortmund and a guy in the front row drank beer.

VSCO Roundup #37 – March 2018

21.08.2018

Oh. It’s the end of August already and the last VSCO Roundup I did was February. I guess there was quite a lot going on during the past months. But I’ll hurry up now and maybe in December I’ll be almost back on schedule. ;-)

In March I spent a weekend in Bremen (very nice) and Bremerhaven (incredibly ugly, but with an interesting museum).

VSCO Roundup #36 part II – February 2018

15.04.2018

Finally here’s the second part of February. I spent a weekend on the Dutch Norh Sea coast (and a few hours in Antwerp, for the first time ever). The weather was amazing and it felt so good to see the sun again after a long and gray winter. I totally fell in love with the light and the colors and fogged windows.

VSCO Roundup #36 part I – February 2018

06.03.2018

I took lots of photos in February, so I had to split this month’s post. The typical German winter (gray and wet and with occasional snow that melts away in hours) changed to a season that really deserves the name: cold, crisp air, clear sky and the most amazing sunrises and sunsets. I enjoyed this a lot.
