tel aviv

Tel Aviv must be one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been to. The architecture is stunningly simplistic with a Bauhaus influence dating back to the 1930’s and a lovely Mediterranean feel and greenery bursting out from every balcony. The warm weather was such a treat coming from a frozen Berlin and the people were incredibly helpful and friendly. Not to mention all the amazing food we had. Could it be any better?

Paris is one of my favourite cities and coincidentally (or maybe not so coincidentally) where Léa lives. She invited me to stay at her place in April and it was glorious. Her apartment opens onto a square with the perfect view of the Eiffel tower. She made me fall in love with the city, the beautiful gardens, canals and people. Paris and its dwellers are the perfect embodiment of the term joie de vivre. They enjoy life to the absolute fullest and they aren’t apologetic for it. They know how to live, and Paris allows them to do exactly that. It was such a special weekend.

Last week I went skiing with my friends for the first time in my life. There’s actual proof of this in the shape of a semi-permanent bruise the size of Africa on my ass. You’re welcome. But actually apart from that, the trip was so much fun.

It was 10 of us taking a 22-hour bus ride from Budapest over to Grenoble, it was so long that we basically ran out of letters playing Mr. X (our favourite guessing game). We picked Les Deux Alpes because it has over 200km of ski slopes and the prices were a lot better compared to Austrian ski resorts. I hadn’t been in the mountains during wintertime sice I was a little child, it got me so excited when the bus was circling in the Alpes. And the view from the windows was breathtaking.

Aside from the daily struggles on the slippery slopes, we also went on a little trip to Venosc, a nearby village that we had direct access to via a ski lift. We had our first Raclette, a traditional French dish of potatoes that you dip into what is basically melted cheese, it was beyond delicious. The waiter at our restaurant was very generous, he got us slightly tipsy on some delicious red wine and proceeded to offer us 4-5 shots of Génépi, a traditional herbal liquor of the region. Needless to say, I highly recommend! We swam outdoors, had an intense sauna session with The Cure playing on repeat and had so many laughs while playing the weirdest games each night.

These were some of my favourite shots from the week.
