Those of you that are avid readers of The Daily Dose probably already saw our Travel Diary of two very relaxing days in the beautiful Burgenland. For those that haven’t seen it yet, let me fill you in: about 2 weeks ago, Kathi and I dragged our boyfriends to a much-need weekend getaway. Not that it really required much dragging, the boys were all for it, and so Friday after work the 4 of us headed south to the Balance Resort Stegersbach by Falkensteiner. I don’t really think the weekend could have turned out any better! We had the perfect mix of fun, relaxing and getting to know some new things (hello wine-tasting).
This week has been such a whirlwind with the launch party of The Daily Dose on Thursday, but today I finally have some time to myself to get the apartment organized & cleaned, and to do some blogging – which I have definitely missed a lot!
Last weekend, Mike and I headed down to Portoroz in Slovenia (just like last summer) to enjoy a long weekend with friends. It has become our annual mid-August trip and I seriously adore the time we spent there. We always stay at the Kempinski Palace Hotel, which I can highly recommend (but ask for the rooms in the modern part, those are bigger & have balconies) and the breakfast there is soo good. Just be aware: drinks & food at the pool are outrageously expensive … we paid 17€ for 2 iced teas, which is definitely not ok!
When a close friend turns a quarter century, it definitely calls for more than just a birthday dinner or cocktails. This was the case last weekend, when Miss Kathi celebrated her 25th birthday in a picturesque location in the mountains of Carinthia. Twelve of her closest friends packed their bags last Friday for 2 days of outdoor fun, including Mike and I. The weekend was definitely one of the funnest times I’ve spent with friends, and there are plenty of pictures to prove that we may have even had a little too much fun!! (They will forever remain hidden in my dropbox!) But since it was such an amazing time, I couldn’t help but share a few impressions with you guys – so here it is, the censored version of our perfect weekend get-away:
This week has somehow flown by so fast and I don’t know where all my spare time went! I’ve been meaning to share some more impressions from our incredible Louis Vuitton experience in Paris with you, but all of a sudden it was Thursday already… BUT I just now had the chance to go through the rest of my photos from last week’s travels and am finally able to share the second day of our #LVsecretplaces journey with you guys: Visiting the Maison on Champs Élysées and the Cabinet d’Ecriture. Enjoy!
