A TRIP TO EUROPE THAT HIT THE WUNDERLUST NOTE:
Late 2019 (Yes, I know we are halfway in 2020..delaying personal blogging is a bad habit of mine) I had the opportunity to head over to Germany to attend as well as document a dear friend of mines wedding.
My time there was short, but I made sure to pack in as much as I could.
First, a stopover at HALBSTARK for some great coffee and a chance to explore the old city of DETMOLD.
Experiencing this city with its rich history, during the month of October, where the colors are so rich is an experience I won’t soon forget.
I’ll be honest this visit, was a surprise. Amongst all the wedding planning & arranging our bride and groom (Luisa & Tom) along with another great friend of mine (Ty) decided to take a day drive to explore Amsterdam.
A short ferry trip over the north sea canal from Amsterdams industrial art hub, we headed into the city center.
Immediately I’m drawn into the fast-paced, hustle & bustle atmosphere this city has to offer: Small lanes, cyclists, pedestrians, motorists, art & culture etc.. at every bend.
This little day trip gave us the great opportunity to put our engaged couple to the test in front of the camera before their big day, and indeed they delivered!
Wow! If ever I was drawn to a city, Cologne would be it (ok ok, with the exception of Seattle, PNW)
I was on solo mode for this one, my final day in Europe.
Everyone’s top tip was to experience first hand the Cathedral, an international pilgrimage site dating back to the year 1164.
I’ll let the photos do the talking for this one.
The magnitude & scale of this beautiful building is something to behold.
I met up with Daniel: He is getting married next year here in Cape town, and I had mentioned to him that I was coming over to Germany, and funny enough, he lives in Cologne.
Daniel was just so generous with his time and knowledge in showing me around the city, giving me some insight into its iconic history and driving me around.
All-round amazing couple of days seeing parts of Europe and reconnecting with friends, making new ones, as well as ticking off some bucket lists.
I hope you all enjoy the little glimpse into my trip.
