Autumn in Grunewald

IMG_8680

Happy Friday, y’all!! Can’t believe how fast this week went by, at least for me. So, last Sunday was a wonderful warm sunny day around here, which was pretty shocking to be honest, because it felt like a summer day in the middle of October! haha And if it’s 20 degrees celsius, you just have to make the most of it! That’s why I decided, for the first time, to go to Grunewald 😀 (when I say “I decided” it’s because Rafael will never come up with these kind of ideas, he usually likes to stay home on Sundays and enjoy his resting day. No problem with me, but sometimes I like to get out of the house and do something, and this “something” is usually a thing he doesn’t like very much, so sometimes he tags along, and sometimes not). Rafael tagged along this time, but was not feeling so well due to a cough, or something like that….but we managed to give Paco the time of his life! The main reason I wanted to go there was because of Paco, countless people already told me how fun it is to take your dog there, because of the lake where they can swim. I didn’t know what were my expectations when I left home, but I came home so happy after having such a great day, I really enjoy being in the middle of nature, I love looking at trees and see how tall they are (silly, I know…but hey, that’s me! hahaha).

Golden Berlin – Part II

Hello, people!!

Wherever you are, hope you are having a great day!

I was supposed to post this last week, but Rafael got sick and I’ve never made so much chicken soup in my life..hahaha (I’m going to blame it on his sickness instead of my procrastination :s ). Last week got pretty cold here in Berlin, like -3 degrees Celsius, I wish that I could say it snowed as well, but it didn’t 😦 Snow, please come soon! I’m already listening to Christmas playlists on Spotify…haha We are pretty anxious for Christmas this year, because now we can buy Christmas decorations for the apartment, different than last year, because we didn’t know if we where going to stay in Germany or not, but we did, HOORAY!! And I can’t wait to go to the Christmas markets, drink Glühwein and eat local food, and maybe buy some Christmas ornaments for the tree. Things are going to be busy around here next month, we are expecting friends and family, so basically we are saving money to buy some things for the apartment and to enjoy the city when they will be here.

Happy November!!!

I am a little bit skeptic that today is the 1st of November, and that Christmas is already around the corner…2016 you are flying right pass me 😮

One thing that I really love about Berlin is the amount of trees in this city, it’s so green, and now also red, yellow and even gold…

Now that Autumn is officially here (yay! I love this season!), it’s time to bring back that good ol’ big pot and cook delicious soups for dinner 🙂 Before Rafael and I moved in together (3 years ago), I didn’t even now how to make soup, in my head it was a difficult thing to do. I was so wrong….hehehhe. I learned how to do it with the help of cookbooks and with some tips of my aunt, who is an amazing cook. When I used to live with her, she and my cousin would make some delicious soups in the winter, my favourite was bean soup…yummy!
