organic holiday

when we were in carinthia at the lake weissensee, we stayed at a little hotel which is an organic farm at the same time. it is owned by a very young and lovely family and they’re specialized in ‘organic holiday’, what means that all the food we enjoyed was organic or fair trade and the meat we had for dinner was from their own farm animals. we had a great time and i wanna come back for sure, maybe some time in winter for ice skating.

spain: landscape

at the end of our trip we were sunbathing at a very beautiful beach near ‘cabo de gata’ (close to almería), which is a natural park with a strange and simultaneously beautiful landscape. i had no idea that there are such desert-like regions in spain. isn’t that great?

 

spain: ronda

first of all i have to say i liked all the paces we visited in andalusia… but ronda was kind of special. we spent our night at the most lovely hostel in the city and from its terrace we also had an amazing view at the bridge.
one day i will come back  for sure :)

spain: cádiz

cádiz was one of the next stops on our journey. it’s a very lovely city located directly at the sea. we spent just one day there because we couldn’t find a cheap place to stay. there are only a few hostels (i think just 2 or 3) and the lady at the tourist information told us: “it’s high season, you know?”. fortunately we had this kind of problem just in cádiz, even in ronda we found a very nice hostel in the middle of the city.
but we found a great solution, we spent the night in our car at the beach and enjoyed the most amazing sunrise the morning after :)

next morning’s sunrise:

spain: sevilla

i hope you’re not annoyed by my spain-posts already, there are  3 or 4 more to come. i know, i always take too many pictures, but i still HAVE to show you the pictures of ronda and cádiz :)

sevilla was our next stop, there we enjoyed amazing food (again), a feisty flamenco show, the “casa de pilatos” and the narrow streets of the city.

moorish spain: la mezquita de córdoba

again i am sorry for not posting for such a long time but i was on holiday in carinthia with my boyfriend last week, then had my first little exhibiton at my sister’s birthday party and shot my first wedding on saturday. so a lot is going on right now, but i’m not complaining ;)

today i wanna show you some more pictures i took in córdoba. the mezquita was originally built as a mosque and was then turned into a cathedral. the architecture is amazing, i loved the mix between moorish and christian culture.

weekly photo challenge: sea

i haven’t participated in the weekly photo challenge for a long time, but this week’s topic is the perfect opportunity for me to return.
sea reminds me of summer, holiday, having a really good time… of everything i actually had in spain a few weeks ago.

all those pictures were taken in cádiz, a lovely small town in andalusia.
