I expected May to be an easy-breezy slow motion, embellished by several extra days of bank holidays (which I am eternally grateful for without going into the details of what we are actually celebrating). Plus, April was crazy and I deserved a break.
Eurovision and long weekend in Stockholm followed by a romantic getaway in Paris with excessive shopping at Le Bon Marche, wine testing and Andrey’s birthday celebration in a Medieval Castle … Sounds like a dream time?
Sort of. Because at the same time I was planning house renovations, interviewing ten different contractors and comparing their offers, arranging interviews with schools in Zug, talking to moving companies and managing a couple of work-related emergencies.
All I want to do now (after waking up at 7 a.m., going for a 5 km run and responding to 20+ work emails) is to say “Just Let Me Lie Down” for a few hours to finish this funniest-ever book and watch EURO2016#.
Here are a few important addresses (discovered by Yelp):
Perfect Sunday branch place in the very centre of Paris – http://nomadsparis.fr/ (sophisticated tapas bar with excellent atmosphere)
Travelling around Frankfurt-Hahn Airport or just somewhere between Trier and Frankfurt need a decent lunch break? Stop at the Landhaus St. Urban for a little break and enjoy the view!
The Castle from the pictures is here
And some beautiful wine-tasting locations nearby (all reachable within 30-40 min drive from one another, but you would need a designated driver 🙂
Next week will be all about football and Art Basel!
