Christmas Greetings 2017

Hello dear family and friends. First of all, we would like to thank you for being with us and visiting our blog from time to time.
As we are keeping saying, this blog is only for the pure entertainment of our family and friends, we are sharing with you some moments of our life, but not everything has been shown here in the past. And that for the simple reason of not having the time while travelling and running around our little Princess Èstelle.  Sometimes the month goes by so quickly, and we didn’t post a word. But don’t be upset with us, the life is running fast, and we are here to enjoy it without any pressure to write a new article.  We are going with the flow, simple and happy.

We wish you from deepest of our heard the most beautiful Christmas Holidays! Happy and prosperous New Year 2018. But the most we want you to be healthy and live in peace. The rest are exclusive wishes which are almost always possible to get. So guys. Hope to see you next year all again here or in real life! We are happy to have you.

The biggest hug!!!

Two and half women Ladies!

Visiting Amazing Dubai Musical

We have already December, the time is running like crazy, in a couple of weeks, we will celebrate our first year of living in Dubai. Last year at this time ….. it would never come through my head to celebrate my next Christmas in Dubai. Here we are ….. more than happy to be part of the amazing city name Dubai!

When we heard that Dubai hosting a musical about the history of Dubai with magical name Amazing Dubai, we couldn’t wait to see it.

Three ladies dressed in royal blue made the city unsafe! The musical was great! We sang, danced and cried. They played the national anthem which was very emotional, we simply enjoyed every minute. We recommend this musical very much. If you live or visiting Dubai, don’t miss the chance to learn something about this amazing culture and country full of opportunities and magic.

See you soon! Yours Two and half women!

September 2017 in Dubai – part 2

Hallo! We have been pretty busy lately, that’s why our blog was so quiet or long time. Now we back with new stuff, hope you will enjoy it.

September in Dubai part 2

Our life in Dubai is just amazing, we love to live here in Dubai, despite the hot weather in Summer, which can be pretty annoying, you can still enjoy the life here indoor. Visiting friends at home, going to parties or visiting shopping malls. It may sound boring to you, but we enjoy the variety of entertainment here in Dubai. This time we visited the Outlet Village. The beautiful place takes you back to  Europe, somewhere in the old town of Italy. OK, it is about shopping again, but they offer plenty of entertainment for kids and that is what counts for us. Our Èstelle met some new friends and had a great time. We went for coffee and lunch. Enjoyed being back in our beloved Europe at least in our minds.

Stay tuned for new videos coming soon.

Big Kiss your Two an half women team.

Back to Dubai

Huraaaa! We are back to Dubai! After almost two months of traveling we finally back. The major reason why we left Dubai is simply the hot period in summer. Dubai is an amazing city, but nothing much exciting for a mother with a little child to do here, in summer you prefer to spend a time with your baby outside. Here in Dubai are thousands of things to do every day, but they mostly indoors. My vision of happy childhood is, running outside and playing with friends, that’s why we decided to spend most of this summer back in Europe.

But now we so much happy to be back, I missed my friends a lot and I literally adore the lifestyle here in Dubai, I missed all of it. Our first week was pretty busy, all Èstelles classes started already the first week so had lots to do.

My very lovely friends came to visit Dubai, I was so excited to see them after very long time. We had a great time, thank you for this.

The first week of September 2017 was exciting and the next weeks will not be different.

See you soon! Kiss Two and half women!

Karlsbad / Karlovy Vary

After visiting Marienbad, why not to visit the next … one of the most interesting cities … the one and only film festival city of Czech Republic, my very favorite … Karlsbad.

 

It’s August, sommer 2017, in the air is love and desire to travel, not too far, just relaxed, no more than a half an hour drive from Marienbad is this next posh monumental historical Thermal Spa Karlovy Vary.

In the 19th century, Karlovy Vary became a popular tourist destination, especially known for international celebrities visiting this place for a spa treatment. As I already mentioned the city is also known for the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, which is one of the oldest in the world and one of Europe’s major film events. It is also known for the popular Czech liqueur Becherovka and the production of the famous glass manufacturer Moser Glass, (a supplier to Edward VII,  the company exhibited at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition 1915 and was awarded as already many times before with a medal, which Louis Comfort Tiffany and Charles Tuthill thought well deserved due to the outstanding quality of the hot glass applied decorations on coloured Bohemian glass.) Oh yes and we shouldn’t forget the famous and very delicious Karlovarské oplatky (Carlsbad wafers) originated in the city in 1867.

Karlovy Vary has been used as the location for a number of film-shoots, including the 2006 films Last Holiday and bond movie Casino Royale, both of which used the city’s  popular and very elegant Grandhotel Pupp in different guises.

This city is very romantic with many parks, thermal springs, exclusive shops and many restaurants ( some of them pretty overpriced ). You will find here definitely something to do, or to see.

Castle Kynžvart (Schloss Königswart) 

On the way to our trip to Marienbad, we heard that the castle Kynzvart (Schloss Königswart) is not very far away from us, we decided to visit this place.

Already the drive to this castle was very beautiful, surrounded by not only a beautiful nature but many farms and modern golf club, we had a good weather and lots of fun.

We have learned a lot about family Metternich, theirs brisant story you shouldn’t miss. It is definitively a beautiful historical place worth of visit.

 

Here some information we found in Wikipedia, more you will experience only when you visit this place yourself …

Kynžvart Castle (German: Schloss Königswart) is a historic château located near Lázně Kynžvart in the Cheb District of the Czech Republic. The building’s architecture is in the neoclassical style. After extensive renovations, the castle was reopened to the public in 2000. A guided tour takes visitors through 25 rooms of the castle.

The first castle, built before 1600, collapsed. After the Battle of White Mountain during the Thirty Years’ War, the remains of the castle were confiscated and by 1630 granted to the Metternich family. From 1682 to 1691, Count Philipp Emmerich von Metternich turned the decayed ruins into a Baroque residence. From 1821 to 1836, the Austrian Chancellor Klemens Wenzel von Metternich remodeled the building in the neoclassical style with the help of architect Pietro Nobile.

The castle was confiscated from the Metternich family in 1945 by the Czechoslovak government.

The castle has a library that includes over 200 examples of incunabula, medieval manuscripts, valuable prints, scientific books, and scientific encyclopedias. In 1828, a museum was founded to display the castle’s natural science collections, coins, historical and technological curiosities, manuscripts, ancient Egyptian monuments, marble sculptures, and pieces of Oriental art.

Mariánské lázně in summer 2017

It is late summer in Czech Republic, we have to enjoy the last warm moments here in Europe before we take off back to Dubai.  We decided to visit some friends in Mariánské lázně, the drive is about 1 1/2 hour from us, so not big deal. I was a spontaneous decision as always, weather was fantastic so why not.

 

Today we not going to tell you much about the history of this beautiful city, we believe that if you are interested, you can find anytime plenty of informations about Mariánské lázně in Internet. But this time we would like share with you this beautiful fashion quote:

“The dress should be so tight to see that you are a woman, but still too loose to see that you are a lady.”   (n.n.)

 

“Šaty mají být tak těsné, aby bylo vidět, že jde o ženu, ale přeci jen tak volné, aby bylo vidět, že jde o dámu. ”   (n.n.)

Enjoy our video.

Yours Two and half women.

 

Cooking with little Èstelle

Todays plan was actually to visit a very nice castle. But somehow we didn’t felt like to do so, I guess we were still exhausted from last days traveling.

So we decided to stay at home and bake some cookies for friends, it its very easy recipe, our little Èstelle did the most of it, so if you like some easy peasy hand made cookie.

Here the recipe.

  • 300gr flour
  • 250gr butter
  • 3 pieces cheese ( triangle happy cow )

….make a dough from this all 3 ingredients.

Create desired shape of your cookies. We made a flat bowls with a hole to fill the cookies with quark. And last but not least to make it sweeter … strew on the top little bit of crumble mixture ( sugar and butter and flour ).

Yours two and half women.

 

 

Our short summer trip to Germany.

We are since couple of weeks in Europe, we could not miss to visit our other part of the family.

I am always happy to come back to my beloved Germany, we lived here for some time in Königstein am Taunus, near by Frankfurt am Main. I have fantastic memories from there.

Now is the most important reason why we flying to Düsseldorf to visit our german part of family. We haven’t seen Marcus mother and sister since last summer.

We had a great time, weather was not much on our side, it rained most of the time, but what to expect in Nordrhein-Westfalen, there is always raining. But we made the most out of it. See our video.

The countryside is beautiful. I am every time impressed about the lifestyle of the Nordrhein-Westfalen people living here. It is unbelievable clean, the houses are very well maintained with love and passion for the detail. It is inspiring to see how people putting such effort in garden and home decoration. I simply love it here.

Yours two and half women.
