This past week was absolutely great! I cannot believe that our holiday is almost over again… Tomorrow, we’ll be packing our bags again to go home after a week full of hiking, nature, mountains and very very delicious food!
I have been sharing a lot of pictures through my Instagram account but here are my five highlights of this week:
1. Apple Strudel
I love pastries but nothing beats apple strudel! Every time I go to Austria or South Tyrol I have it at least once. I love it warmed up and with vanilla ice cream… Next thing on my list to try myself at home is making my own apple strudel!
2. Swinging in the Rain
On Monday, the weather was extremely bad. We went to see some labyrinth gardens that had so much to offer such as this giant swing for adults. It was covered by a giant tree that protected me from the rain. I loved swinging for a while and feeling like a little child again!
3. The beauty of South Tyrol
There are so many beautiful flowers all around South Tyrol! Even though, it is already fall, it still feels a bit like summer around here which I love a lot!!!
4. Romantic Hiking Trails
Several days this week, we went up the big mountains of the Alps and hiked around up there. Nature there is so beautiful that I could not stop taking pictures!
5. The quiet atmosphere & the views on the mountain top
One of our goals when we are hiking is to reach the top of the mountain. It can be exhausting but it feels so good as well once you’ve arrived and enjoy the spectacular views! What I also love is the very quiet atmosphere up there as there are usually not that many people around and traffic is not existing.
This weekend, we will stay in South Tyrol until late morning on Saturday before returning home. As much as I would like to stay here longer, I also look forward to being at home again. Work will not be as stressful anymore and I have loads of great recipe ideas to try and then share with you guys!
Tea Giveaway still open!
Do not forget the tea tasting set giveaway. You can participate until Sunday to win 1 of 3 Teekadenz tea tasting sets.
