Whenever I think about Dr. Martens Boots, I think of some of my first trips to London. Stepping off the tube at Covent Garden and heading straight for the Dr. Martens store – it was one of the first things I did, when arriving in the city.
Now twenty years later (I feel old all of a sudden), I find myself with a new pair of shiny Dr. Martens boots – or – my daughter has borrowed my new pair, so I don’t know if I’ll ever get them back. Back in the days, I loved these boots – never mind that it took forever for them to be comfortable to walk in – I didn’t care about that back then. But given the chance by Footway, to once again walk in these boots, well I couldn’t resist. We’ll see how much I’ll actually walk in them myself, I’ve got a pretty good idea about who’s gonna steal them.
Heading back to London with my family
With these boots, I’m also reminded of all my great memories of walking the streets of London. I actually miss it. I haven’t been back for almost 8 years – which is crazy given the fact that I would go there at least twice a year back then. My husband and I took our daughter to see the city, we both love, when she was around 4 years old – but our son has never been there. We’re about to change that, we’ve booked the flight and hotel for this summer. I cannot wait to show them both all the amazing spots in London.
My husband and I just returned from yet another fantastic trip to Hamburg. I wanted to share a few where, when and what’s with you from our latest trip. We often stay in a flat, but almost always in the St. Pauli area.
Where to stay ➳ We stayed at east
Where to get your cup of coffee ➳ I would highly recommend you check out Nord Coast Coffee Roastery and less political (Hermetic coffee roasters)
When to visit the city ➳ Every single day of the year – we’ve been there spring, summer, fall and winter.
Where to get a decent burger and sweet potato fries ➳ Check out Brooklyn Burger Bar and Otto’s Burger (Try the salted caramel shake!)
Where to find food trucks ➳ Street food session Yum!
Where to shop ➳ Get away from the high streets – and explore all the cool little shops. This time I bought quite a few things in Kauf Dich Glücklich
Where to eat pizza (to die for) ➳ Das Mehl – we went there in November and loved every bite of pizza – I hope they’ll find a new location soon
What to do on a rainy day ➳ Visit Miniature Wunderland – it’s not just for kids – adults will love it too
Have a fantastic day xoxo
I almost feel like it isn’t really summer if I haven’t been to Gothenburg in Sweden. Last week we decided on a day trip this year with both kids. Unfortunately, the ferry had a little accident on Sunday, and we had to change our plans. We were all pretty excited about the trip, but we decided to go during our fall break instead.
I wanted to return to my favourite coffee spot da Matteo with my husband and both kids.

But I also recently discovered another coffee spot, Kafé Magasinet, which I’ve been wanting to explore.

Did you enjoy the summer in Paris with your kids? Or maybe a trip to the lovely city is just around the corner? I’ve found the perfect way for kids to discover or remember Paris.
On the blog Made by Joel, I’ve found the cutest miniature travel size paper Paris.
Get out your scissors and create a miniature version of Paris that’ll fit right into a tiny box. It’s perfect for kids and parents on the go. If you’re looking for a larger version, you can print it right here.
Made by Joel has a really cute selection of paper city toys. Take a look around and maybe your kid will be playing with dinosaurs in Sydney in a few days.
I’m on my way to Gothenburg. I cannot wait for a tiny break away from everything. It will be a nice distraction right now. The best coffee at da Matteo, lunch at Way Cup and lots and lots of shopping. I’ve been looking at Granit’s webshop and found a few things I cannot wait to see in the shop. Although, I cannot bring this bike home with me – it’s still really cool. The rest, I’m sure I’ll fit into a bag or two.
I’m a bit lost these days. I’ve been without my iPhone (again) for almost 14 days, and somehow that made it a bit more complicated to capture moments from our trip to Hamburg. But we did bring a camera, I just need to look through the pictures first. I hope to do that during the week.
But we did enjoy a few days in the amazing city – and my daughter loved it as well. We’re already looking at dates for our next visit. But it’ll just be the two of us then – and the kids’ll stay at home. It turned out to be a bit of a shopping trip – we hadn’t planned that though. I’ll write up a few tips and must see places during the week as well. So stay tuned for that.
I’ll enjoy the last few hours of my vacation – and catch up on some reading. First on my list is the new online magazine NIB Hjemme. And then I’ll go explore the forum on Blogging Your Way. Class begins on November 1st – and I’m so ready to get inspired again.
