Lolahola Partnerlook T-Shirts mit Kamera

Das ist eine von unseren heutigen Bestellungen für einen Kunden aus Österreich.

Ich musste es einfach fotografieren, ich liebe diese Kombination, habe das T-Shirt auch. Ein “Must have” für Blogger die gerade die eigene Kamera zuhause vergessen haben. OK….Photos zu machen wird ein wenig kompliziert, aber es ist zweifellos ein Hingucker. Als kleine Dankeschön haben wir dazu noch in Baby Bib (Lätzchen) zugetan, ich denke das passt perfekt zum Design.

Bin gespannt was unsere lieben österreichischen Nachbarn dazu sagen ;-).

Schönen Abend an alle.

Ich habe fast vergessen zu schreiben, das T-shirt sind natürlich online erhältlich auf:

Wir sind wieder da!

Hallo Freunde,

nacht sehr lange Pause sind wir wieder zurück mit unsere Blog. Es war eine sehr lange und wirklich spannende Sommer, leider war es so schön mit sehr viele tolle Ereignissen das wir kein Zeit hatten zum schreiben.

Sommer 2016 war warm, sonnig, mit langen Nächten die wir bis letzten September Tag genossen habe. Unzählige Strandbad besuche, jeden Tag Eiscreme naschen und fast nie zuhause gewesen. Viele Bikinis gekauft aber noch mehr Gummi Wasser Spielzeug. Dazu viele neue und alte Freunde getroffen. Aber auch das alle liebste verloren, unsere Grosse Freund Hund Ortega,  der ein von wenigen Wessen diese Erde, der ich sehr respektiert habe. Ich habe so viel von ihm  gelernt, dank zu Ortega bin ich ein besseres Menschen geworden. Wir vermissen dich jeden Tag.

So jetzt sind wir wieder da….ich freue mich auf unsere neue spannende Zeit. Weil es wird bestimmt ein wenig anderes als es bis jetzt war. Es is sehr viel passiert Zwischenzeit, wir haben neue Pläne, unsere kleine Maus wird grosser. Bin gespannt wie es mit uns weiter geht.

So hurraaaa ins neue Abenteuer!

Estelle erste Ernte!

Und hier möchten wir ihnen vorstellen unsere erste Ernte 2016!

Huraaaa unsere Projekt Urban Farming geht voran! OK es ist nicht besonderes nur ein Strauch von Roten Johannisbeeren, aber wir sind sehr stolz.

Estelle hat sehr grosse mühe immer wieder vorbei zu laufen und nicht auprobieren, jetzt kann sie es alles essen!

Aber ehrlich zu sein, mehr spass macht es sie zu pflücken als zu essen, mindestens für unsere Estelle.

So guten Appetit Prinzessin.

 

Konstanz short trip 31. Mai 2016

We love Konstanz, not only because you can shop much cheaper here, many swiss people come here for this reason, we simply like its atmosphere with historical influence. We have been in Konstanz many times, this time we had a special reason, Marcus has a very good dentist here, and it was a time to visit him for check up.

Konstanz is a university city with approximately 80,000 inhabitants located at the western end of Lake Bodensee in the south-west corner of Germany, bordering Switzerland.

Constance is a town of great historical relevance. For the most part it wasn’t affected by the wars of the last century and was to be of historical significance throughout a certain period of time. From the 6th century until the year 1827, Constance was the bishop’s see of the largest German diocese. Located at the intersection of main routes of commerce between Italy, France and Eastern Europe, the city became an important emporium for the trade with fur, linen and spices from the 10th to the 14th century. In the 15th century, a four-year long council took place in Constance that attracted 72.000 visitors, among them 3000 prostitutes. A walk through town is an encounter with many traces of past centuries of prosperity.

I used to learn at school about Master Jan Hus  (born 1372 – 6 July 1415 ),  a Czech priest, philosopher, early Christian reformer and Master at Charles University in Prague. Hus is considered as the first Church reformer, as he lived before Martin Luther, Calvin and Zwingli. Hus was a key predecessor to Protestantism, and his teachings had a strong influence on the states of Western Europe, most immediately in the approval of a reformist Bohemian religious denomination, and, more than a century later, on Martin Luther himself. He was burned at the stake for heresy against the doctrines of the Catholic Church, and that here in Konstanz. We czechs are proud of Master Jan Hus and until today we celebrate his execution in 1415 every year on 6th of July with a bank holiday. For us czechs is Jan Hus important part of our history. A century later after his execution, as many as 90% of inhabitants of the Czech lands were non-Catholic and some still followed the teachings of Hus and his successors. Amazing!

OK enough of the past, what about shopping! The city of Constance has become shopper’s heaven. Citizens and guests can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of old town that doesn’t stand still. Neighboring Switzerland and the mutual fascination is definitely of importance to the aspiring economic and commercial centre. The shopping mall Lago has made a great contribution to the city’s reputation beyond its frontiers. In the meantime the initial worry that retail business in Constance will suffer because of the implantation of one major mall has disappeared. In the contrary: gastronomy, shops and all other businesses have profited from the numbers of shoppers who come to shop at Lago Mall, and who continue to stroll through town to discover lovely little shops and fantastic restaurants. Quality of life also means to have a liberty of choice and honestly there is a great variety of everything.

So pack your bags and come to visit Konstanz, take your boat, Bodensee is huge, take your money, there is lots to buy, and take your glasses, there is much to see!

Are the Swiss the happiest people in the world?

This question many of you like to ask someone living in the Switzerland. We are living here over 9 years, and I have to genuinely say….Yes I am happier and I am thankful for every day being here.

Switzerland is regularly rated as one of the countries offering the best quality of life in the world. It is very clean and safe and runs like swiss clock (almost). Switzerland is located at the centre of Europe, you can easily travel to Germany, Italy or France within couple of hours. It offers a wealth of opportunities to enjoy life amongst its breathtakingly beautiful mountains and lakes.

We are living in Kanton Zug. The political stability and high living standards have made Zug, one of Switzerland’s smallest cantons, a hard-to- beat place to live and work. OK, OK, it’s not London or NY, the population is about 30.000, but imagine that Zug has inhabitants from 128 nations. That’s amazing! As you see Zug is very international so you can get away with not speaking German.

If you like swimming, hiking, skiing, driving boat, diving, climbing, cycling, stand up paddle, paragliding and many more….believe or not, you will find it here on this very little spot.

 The Shopping, hmmmm… honestly not mine in Kanton Zug, lets say it this way, this place has lovely little shops, but nothing I would get crazy about. But that’s OK, we have just 2 1/2 hours to Milano or Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich (20 min.) will also do.

Zug’s main shopping area is located in the heart of the city,  and is designed to provide pedestrians with comfortable shopping. Never mind where you start from, you will easily find your way back. In the Metalli Center, situated besides the railway station and the Baarerstrasse, you will find a great variety of shops and restaurants. Strolling through the old town (“Altstadt”) from the main railway station to the Casino along the lake, you will find, elegant boutiques, many jewelers, banks, lovely confectioners and many sidewalk cafés with outdoor terraces and beautiful mountain and lakeside view. This historic part of Zug is traffic free, a real paradise for pedestrians and dog walker.

We are on the bike every day in summer, it is lovely to drive among the stunning lakeside and well-tended farms with cows and sheeps on the fields, still not far away from modern civilization.

Come and see Zug, it is well worth the visit, you will see traditional and modern Switzerland at its best.

Have a look at the amazing video, which inspired me to write this article! The granny would be definitely fitting in our family! 

 

 

 

 

Living in the castle, would you?

Most of us living in modern architecture buildings, some are little older or extremely hip.  Howerver, it is not everyday that you get the chance to see grandiose medieval building that reflect the culture and vibration of the ages they’ve been passing by. Well I had this chance couple of days ago, when I visited my good friend, she is not a princess, she is simply lucky enough to live hier with her family, this castle have been perfectly looked after over centuries and have been passed on from generation to generation. I love this beautiful place, which I would definitively swop for my apartment in second.

In old days castles were a symbol of power and wealth. Nowadays, they have become a symbol of living a fairytale. Besides ist undeniable beauty, once you enter a castle you get the feeling being a part of a magical fairy tale, where kings being crowned and murdered. Castles hide secrets and they also inspires you to feel like a Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty.

The castle of my friend has all this and even more, is maybe not that big as you may think but it stays for a remarkable example of elegance and luxury, furnished with the most exquisite pieces of furniture, all custom-made by the best cabinet-makers of the 18th century. The never-ending garden with beautiful expanses of plants and trees with varieties of beautiful colorful blooms makes this place absolutely outstanding.

Me, Èstelle and our dog Ortega were grateful to be here, at least for couple of hours I felt like a princess. I’ve seen many castles till now and I even slept in Castle hotel, but never visited such private place like castle of my friend.

Here some pictures of our outfits.

Me and Èstelle wear dress from Henrieta Duffner and partner look T-shirts from Lolahola.
