As mentioned a few posts earlier, I don’t know how to continue with the format of this blog – it became quite boring for me to only write about where to eat and what to eat or where to travel or what to do.
Today I still don’t know what will happen, but I just keep writing, maybe in the hope that the blog will find it’s own way during the next couple of posts.
Why not write about my current weekend. Isn’t this what a blog – an online diary – is about?
So far, my weekend has already been filled with a lot of nice things. Although it began with me being annoyed:
Being back from a travel to Berlin… I wanted to spontaneously go out for breakfast while also enjoying the sun. In Berlin this wouldn’t have been a problem. A dozen of cafés would pop up in front of my way through the streets of Berlin. However, Munich doesn’t offer a variety of good breakfast places with an al fresco option. I mean there are options where you can sit outside and enjoy the start of the day, also good ones, but honestly I can count them up to 3. And if you haven’t reserved any table – no chance for a spontaneous breakfast.
So I had the hope, wandering around the streets with no exact goal, finding a new good spot in Munich to have breakfast al fresco. After almost two hours (!) I gave up and went to one of my favourite places: Stereo Café. In the end a good decision, but it was already lunch time and I was hungry as hell.
With my stomach being satisfied and having soaked up the sun on Stereo Café’s terrace, I did then the only to do I had for this weekend: Pre-travel shopping.
I’m getting more and more excited about my trip next week. And since I am traveling alone, I had to buy something that I would have laughed at just a couple of weeks ago: a selfie stick. But hey, I do not hand over my phone to complete strangers to take pictures and maybe run away with all my data…
Since I was already at the electronic shop, I also got me a new SD card, a power bank, a mini-tripod and a cleaning wipe for my system camera. So – I’m perfectly prepared for my travel.
On my way home I grabbed a coffee from Starbucks – why am I telling you that? Because, for a non-coffee drinker I realize with every day, that I turned to a semi coffee-drinker – but only the coffee with a lot lot lot of milk and a sweet flavour shot in it. Does that already count a drinking coffee?! Anyway – lately I have gotten me a coffee a Starbucks and was surprised that my name can actually be written wrong in a way I have never seen it: Flurita – what the ?!?!?! – of any letter that can be spelled wrongly in my name, how can it be the “o”? So now I am just saying my nickname “Flo” – this is so easy, but hey, I am waiting for the day that even someone will invent an alternative spelling for it.
So basically my day went on without any greater excitement – after a short nap and hitting some golf balls at the range (which got me frustrated again….grrr) – I found some time for home cooking and made a very standard Summer Pasta dish: Asparagus, Prawns, Rocket, Tomatoes and Pasta.
As I didn’t feel like going out, I ended Saturday with a semi-funny French movie. Since it was only semi-funny I’m not mentioning it’s name here.
After having experienced the frustration of finding a new breakfast spot yesterday, I decided to just grab something from the bakery today and have a breakfast on my rooftop terrace. Where I am still sitting right now – typing this weekend-story 🙂
Sometimes this is the best – home sweet home.
My day is going to be continued – maybe with a round of golf, some running and a coffee with friends… let’s see. Anyway – I wish you all a nice remaining Sunday and hope that the weather is as good as here in Munich!
