A little over two months have passed since I visited Hamburg again after not having been there for about five years. I don't really know how that happened, especially since it is one of my absolute favorite cities. This past November, I spent three picture perfect fall days discovering the city by foot, strolling through the city center as well as the warehouse district, along the Outer Alster and through previously unknown neighborhoods such as Rotherbaum and Harvestehude. Hamburg, meine Perle, I can't wait to be back for good!

Before my boyfriend moved to Munich at the beginning of 2014, I had only been there once for a rather brief visit. Needless to say that I didn't really know the city at all. I'm happy to say that, over the course of this past year, I have gotten to know Munich fairly well, having spent a considerable amount of time exploring it throughout all four seasons. All of the above pictures have been taken during my week-long stay in August, when we got to enjoy the city and all its parks and outdoor spaces to the fullest. In the meantime, I have also gotten to experience the city covered in snow over New Year's, which looked exceptionally pretty as well. However, I still prefer the proximity of the ocean over the mountains… Munich definitely is a great city that I like to visit and enjoyed getting to know better, but when it was up to me to decide which city I wanted to move to after finishing my studies, I chose Hamburg. And to be honest, this wasn't a decision I had to think twice about.
