My Summer Highlights

I have been back to school and sadly, 2 months of summer holiday is over. Time flies but nice memories stay.

The Dutch summer used to be horrible because of the rain and sudden-temperature-dropped. This summer was just wonderful. I spent most of my time in the kitchen, made some great food for my boyfriend and myself. More than that, I finally know how to make a perfect chocolate cake. I’m making a start to reach one of my dream – having my own bakery. I decided to stay in Utrecht this summer instead of going back to Germany to my family. It was a right decision. I had a chance to stay in a room which is in the centre. This gave me an opportunity to know about Utrecht a bit better. I also met my amazing roommates.

Here are some highlights of my wonderful summer

BlogHad an amazing road trip to FRANCE and ITALIAN LAKES with my boyfriend. And I was totally in love with the French cuisine. Click here to watch the road trip video

Untitled-1After being back from the vacation, I had all the time in the world. I started to improve my baking skills 🙂 One of my to-dos in the bucket list is to have my own bakery. I made many cakes as I could. The first cake of the summer was my boyfriend’s birthday cake.

The end of summer, it was also the time that my boyfriend had to go to India for his research. And now, I am here in Utrecht but having a very busy schedule for this September.

  • 6 – 8 Sept: Visiting family in Köln
  • 13 – 15 Sept: My dad is coming to visit me here in Utrecht (Jippie)
  • 19 – 22 Sept: Flight to Bratislava to visit my uncle and aunt. Also to celebrate my lovely cousin’s 21st birthday
  • 25 Sept – 10 Oct: I will be off to Vietnam.


You shouldn’t be sad that summer is over. It’s also coming back 😉

Wish you all a great new school year!!

Lago d’ Orta San Giulio

We planned our holiday to go to Northern Italian lakes. With the car, we took a short ride by a ferry through the tunnel and we climbed mountains one after each other. We finally arrived to Lago Orta San Giulio after 5 hours driving – a quiet lake near by Lago Maggiore. Orta San Giulio is a little cute town. I loved every corner, every small balcony with many pots of flower decorated…
