Breath-taking views, gorgeous architecture, and amazingly yummy food! I promised this post over a week ago and just now I managed to find some time to look again through all the photos we took in Venice. Honestly I was a bit reluctant when my boyfriend told me he just booked a trip to Venice for our birthday since I was already there twice in the past (during Summer) and I could only imagine millions of tourists everywhere, crowded cobbled streets and stinky water. 
But I loved it 100%! Mild weather around 15° (at the end of November), few tourists, complete change of scenery compared with Berlin, charming and romantic - truly a pleasure to get lost in Venice. Here's my travel experience!

We traveled by plane from Berlin Schönefeld to Venice Marco Polo Airport and in almost 1 1/2 hour we landed and the improvement was quite visible: 10°C more, joyful noisy happy people having casually an espresso and a glass of wine at 11AM everywhere - I'm quite fond of the la Dolce Vita Italiana, and 600 years old breathtaking views. From the airport we took the vaporetti and 40 minutes later we were in San Polo, where our hotel was - needless to say we got lost in a 300m walk from the water bus stop to the hotel.

We spend the entire 4 days walking the city, getting constantly lost, visiting the popular attractions like San Marco Square, the Rialto Bridge and Ponte dell'Accademia but also cute hidden streets around the lagoon walking non-stop all day.  As per some of these images, we also ate a lot (arhmm.. maybe a bit too much) but you literally can't say no to cicchetti, pasta, seafood or any of their sweets. Try Cantine Do Spada - for delicious cicchetti, Dal Moro's - fresh pasta and n°1 on Trip Advisor, or Muro Frari for a bit of fancy dining.

Our hotel with a gorgeous view. We were starting the day with breakfast in bed, followed by a second espresso around 11, then wondering the streets, having lunch in cute Osterias', then some more walking and visiting, having the casual glass of Spritz at 6PM followd by dinner and then some more glasses of Spritz. Note to self: go freelance and move to Italy! Please!

I should be very very ashamed of myself. It's been almost a month with no update here, occasional updates on social media and I can frankly say I've quite missed it. Truth be told, I moved again (what's wrong with me?!) and I was out of internet for 3 weeks and then between work, the weekly visits to Ikea and complete darkness outside at 4PM it really leaves me little time to take pictures & work on posts. 
Random things that happened/will happen lately:
- we moved (you can see the neighborhood in the images) in the quiet/posh-y side of Berlin
- saw Gone Girl the movie & read the book - of course, the book is brilliant
- queued for 3 hours at the Embassy to vote for Romania's President & I'm looking forward to seeing Romania catching up with the rest of Europe politically and economically speaking
- I'm starting to like Germany more and more, especially during fall - still don't speak the language though
- is my birthday next week and we're leaving for Venice for an extended birthday weekend
- planning to start redecorating after we come back
- I'm super excited for Christmas & everything winter-y 
Ok, that's all. I'm going to bake a Tiramisu, to prepare myself for all the delicious Italian dishes I'll have next week. Follow me on Instagram to see what I'll be doing in Italy.

I'm wearing: Vitage coat/ Mango boots/ Zara bag/ Primark scarf/ Asos sunnies/ H&M earings

Hope you're all having a great start into the week and Fall's treating you well. Berlin's been quite nice, can't complain, proof being these images shot a week back in Arnswalder Platz, one of the many green golden areas in this city. It might be that Fall's my favorite season after all, and no, not because of all the cliche blogger reasons (pumpkin spice latte or Halloween to name a few) but because the city is turning into this amazing mix of colors, air gets chillier and we can just layer non stop till next summer comes. Pertinent reasons, am I right?
Speaking of jewel toned colors, I'm sporting a few here, namely waterfall jacket/cardigan in burgundy from WalG London, a floral print bag from LookbookStore and my favorite basics.

Boots - Parfois
Tee - Zara
