As we stretched our legs we decided that it would be the perfect morning to grab our stuff and get going on a road trip! With as our next destination St-Moritz! Lugano is only about 2.5 hours from Lugano, and its one of the most beautiful trips I have ever done. You gradually climb your way up the mountains, cross bridges that are build over the abyss, and pass waterfalls formed by huge rocks. The higher you climb, the more beautiful the view gets. The closer you get to St-Moritz the more turquoise the water gets. The whole trip is absolutely breathtaking.
The breathtaking views will just continue to amaze you once you arrive in St-Moritz. As you look over the turquoise water sailing boats will cross the horizon. In the background fields of green and high mountains. Even the houses suite the beautiful scene and make the picture complete. We drove into the most romantic movie scene, and I am not planning on leaving it anytime soon!
With an espresso in our hand we put our feet in the water and watch the sails go by. It’s the most amazing place to go for long and beautiful walks. Both in the summer and in the winter you have plenty of activities and it will be buzzing with energy! The scenery also changes drastically, but I cant decide whats more beautiful, the image below with fresh green grass, or filled with snow. Can you image what its like? It would be winter wonderland. – I cant wait for the first snowflakes to fall and sit in front of the fire with my hot coco, looking outside of the frosty window and seeing the town covered in fairy lights. (Let me just burst my own bubble!) But for now, lets enjoy the green fields, warm lake and beautiful mountains!
In the next few days I will be showing you all about St-Moritz! And tomorrow is a special day! Il be telling you all about it! X
I love working in different environments and places. I feel like it keeps my creativity and good energy flowing. So when I find myself in different locations I love searching for the perfect spots to work from! However, this is a spot where I keep coming back to when I am in Lugano. I fell in love with its atmosphere the moment I first set step on the dock.
As you sit down your cappuccino will be waiting for you. You open your laptop and take a sip of your delicious coffee while replying to your emails. You can feel your seat moving slightly up and down as waves crash against the dock. When you decide that you are getting too hot and need some refreshment just get undressed and take a dive into the cold lake. As you climb back on the dock you look back and look over the beautiful lake with the mountains in the background. It’s mind blowing, honestly the best place to spend your day working or just to enjoy a relaxed day in the sun!
In Deauville every sunset is more beautiful than the last. The colours appear more vibrant, and the sky seems more clear. But once in a while you get a special sunset. One with thunder and rain. Heavy clouds surrounded by vibrant colours. Light shines through the rain onto the water. A perfect rain storm.
I believe that when the sunsets its a magical moment, a golden moment. I can never stop staring until you finally see that moment where the sun only takes seconds to disappear behind the wall of sea. But this time I have to leave the perfect storm behind, and leave for another adventure. The next few days will include a lot of travelling! To some beautiful places! My next stop? Holland!
And what is a more beautiful road trip than travelling from Normandy to Holland? Both countries have the most magical landscapes. – The trip might take a little longer as I will be stopping every 5 min to take a picture..
So there I go, ready to take on another day, another adventure, another beautiful sunset.
Even on a rainy day, I enjoy walking through this beautiful town. This time I am holding my cup of coffee tight, the wind is giving me shivers down my spine. As I am sitting safely underneath the parasol I watch people walk past, each and one of them in their own little world. People fascinate me, I think that is why I day dream so much. – It happens daily where I have some kind of awkward eye contact with a stranger after getting caught staring at them for what must of been quite a while.. I just wonder off, in my own little world, while thinking about everyone else’s little world.
When I returned to planet earth after my daily day dream session I joined the most French birthday party I have ever been to. As I arrived I got guided to the most beautiful secret garden, surrounded by palm trees and flowers. The tables where filled with countless cakes all home-made by the people that had gathered themselves in the garden enjoying their red wine and champagne. Rose peddles, candles, cheese, cake, wine, champagne all chattered over the table, it was the most beautiful mess I had ever seen. The sweet sound of laughter combined with the beauty of the french language created the most beautiful vibe. I now know one thing, the French know how to enjoy life. As I took a bite of my cake I heard someone say this in the background, “Take that extra sip of your wine, enjoy that piece of cake, tell your friends that you love them, because you never know what tomorrow might bring.” – So there you are, some wise advise for you from a true French man.
