Cowgirl wannabe…

September 17, 2013


IMG_6232Zu beschäftigt mit dem Studium ist die Zeit des Bloggens viel zu kurz gekommen, aber jetzt bin ich wieder voll dabei – schliesslich gibt es eine Menge zu berichten!!! Ihr erinnert Euch noch? Neulichst waren wir in Dallas, TX. Auch wenn ich die meiste Zeit im Hotel verbracht habe und mit den Aufgaben für mein Studium beschäftigt war, hab ich es dennoch auf die Southfork Ranch geschafft und wie es sich gehört, hab ich auch ein paar ordentliche Cowboy Boots erstanden. Meine Recherche ergab, dass Cavender’s Boot City “the place to go” ist. Also sind wir dorthin und mein Ziel war es innerhalb einer Stunde ein paar Boots zu finden, natürlich Made in USA – war gar nicht so einfach war – was fuer ein Mekka!!!

Too busy with my studies I haven’t had time for blogging but now I am back – there is a lot to share!!! You still remember? We have been in Dallas, TX a while a go and although I had to spend most of my time in the hotel keeping up with my assignments (I can tell four courses at once – that keeps you busy…) but we made it to the Southfork Ranch. What do people, mostly Europeans, think when they think of Texas? Cowboys, Ranches, Meat etc… So before moving back to Europe of course I wanted to get a proper pair of cowboy boots! The conclusion of my research was that Cavander’s Boot City seems to be the place to go to. So off we were and spent some time to explore this fantastic place – I loved the smell of leather and my ultimate goal was to find a pair of boots within an hour – not so easy I can tell – and of course the boots should be made in the US (ok ok El Paso is close to the Mexican border but still they were made in the US).

Immer wieder sonntags… | a Sunday morning treat

July 28, 2013


Die Saison hat wieder begonnen: frisches Gemüse von der Farm direkt auf den Tisch. Jeden Sonntag gibt es eine Auswahl an Saison Gemüse und man muss nur zugreifen. Super!

We had a later start than last year but I love the CSA concept – from farm to table. So fresh and so delicious! What a Sunday morning treat!

Check it out walkabout farm in Peterborough NH

Vermont – the place my hubby likes

July 18, 2013


IMG_5219My mom and a friend came to visit. Of course it was nice to have your mom around you for 3 weeks and the house is cleaned, the laundry done and most importantly my hubby is happy as his shirts were ironed in time.

One weekend we thought to go to places we like and what comes first in mind? Vermont! As it reminds my hubby of Norway – the landscape, the green, the trees – it provides him a “home feeling”.

So we stopped by at our favorite restaurant in Waterbury: Hen of the Wood – the MUST place to go, when in Vermont and when one wants to enjoy a REALLY good meal. But prior to our evening treat we did a factory tour at nearby Ben & Jerry’s. My mom liked it but with the nice dinner ahead of us we decided to share a small cone. Still, the definition of small is something I have to get used to…

The next day we drove to Burlington and did a boat trip at lake Champlain. Perfect conditions and the boat season had just started. On our way back we stopped in Middlebury, drove these little roads where one starts to wonder whether this is an official road but we made it home with nice memories in mind.

Summer in the city

July 17, 2013


I have been here before but this time I enjoyed if even more.
San Diego is a great city for hanging out, walking the city, good places too eat (I am not talking about all this touristy stuff) and especially with the start of Comic Con you can find lots of crazy people.
While most people think it is hot in California, actually it is not too warm, just perfect and luckily not humid as we usually experience in New Hampshire during summer time.
The only thing that was a little hassle was changing hotels. Not on purpose but as a result of awful chemical smelling towels, cold shower and large group of teenagers partying all night long at the pool. The Courtyard Marriott people were great to let if go without any extra fee for early leaving, so for that they definitely get an extra plus point. For less money a night we made it up the ladder as we checked in at The US Grant, downtown San Diego. What a great hotel! Nice staff, well maintained and overall provides a great “welcome home” feeling.
