Primrose Hill

Hello readers.

Today I’ll show you some photos of the wonderful Primrose Hill.
I’ve been very busy with my work the whole day, so I’m not going to write much now.

Hello Mr. Holmes ♥

Hello everyone.

Here’s part two of my London posts. It’s about our visit at the famous Baker Street. Yes, we visited Sherlock Holmes *-*

I guess you know that SH lived in the 221B Baker Street…. well, if he had lived. Unfortunately, he’s just a character in a book series.
But the adress is real. There is a the museum, which is all about the one and only Consulting Detective and his friend John Watson and their adventures.

The rooms are furnished like Sir Conan Arthur Doyle described them.

You can sit in Sherlock’s chair and wear his (or in my case John’s) hat.

And I love all the little details.
The candles and fireplaces seems to work.
It’s like Sherlock and John are just out to solve a crime and they’ll be back in a minute to have a drink.
Do you fancy a Scotch or Gin?

Everywhere is something you know from the stories.

It’s a great place for everyone who’s a Fan of the great stories about Sherlock Holmes.
No matter if you love the books or the old movies.
Even if you just love the BBC series (I’m obsessed with it!), you probably going to like this awesome museum.

Do you like Sherlock Holmes? What’s your favourite story about him?

Epic Brownie

Hello darlings.

Today I start with my posts about London. And the first topic is the food. We had a lot of great, awesome, tasty, perfect food in London.
Yes, that’s right. We went to England and had the best food in our life.

Let’s start with my favourite. Jamie Oliver’s Risotto Wild Mushroom & Smoked Mozzarella. I ate it at Jamie’s Italian in Covent Garden.
But let’s be honest, desserts are the best thing about dinner. Aren’t they?
So Jamie Oliver is very creative and he sells an Epic Brownie.
The name says it all. It’s epic!

2013-12-31 15-32-02

Yes, there is popcorn and ice cream on the top of the brownie.
And it tastes better than you may think.
As you can guess Theresa and I love Jamie Oliver.
That’s why we also went to his restaurant Fifteen.
There we shared a brilliant salat, a perfect pizza and had great dessert.
But this shouldn’t be all about Jamie Oliver’s food. Even through we loved it the most.

One afternoon we ate Cupcakes.
My cute little cake is from a store called The Cupcake Bakehouse. It’s also at Covent Garden.

2013-12-30 15-17-35

We also went to some other restaurants, but I can’t post every little bit of food we had in five day. Or can I?
I could… because I made a photo of everything… but I think it’s not that excited. I mean you know what pasta or burgers look like.
But if you really like to know what else we got, you can follow me on Instagram and I’ll post everything (it just will take some time).

So that’s it for today. I’ve to do some paperwork for my job… and I’m a little hungry now.

Have a great week.

The greatest peace I’ve ever known.

Dear readers.

Last Friday I was at Patrick Wolf’s Concert. It was the best time of the year.

I love Patrick Wolf.

Because he writes perfect lyrics. If I’ll ever get a tattoo, it’d be a part of the song Lycanthropy. But there are so many more great lyrics. Lately I cried to House, because I’ve to move and I loved my home… and it just makes me sad.
Well, but on the otherside his songs make me happy. They show me that I am not alone. The lyrics help me to explain my own feelings and give me courage to be the person I want to be. And I’m thankful for that.

“Let no foot, mark your ground Let no hand, hold you down.”
– Patrick Wolf –

Because of his beautiful voice. This voice reminds me of something better… that there’s still something great to come. His whole music has a very unique – in a positive way – sound. When people ask me what kind of music he makes, I never know what to say. He’s music is just different from all the other artists I’ve ever heard.

Because he has the best wolfpack in the world. When I go to a concert of this gorgeous man I feel like I am going to a huge meeting with a lot of friends. It’s always a great atmosphere and everyone is very kind.
They also make amazing projects like the Happy Birthday video for Patrick’s 30th birthday. Or they send christmas cards to each other.

Because his personality is kind, honest and great. He makes me laugh about jokes. On stage he dances like he’s home alone. He enjoys every second while he’s performing. I love that. And then there’s his style – colourful, glittering. It’s awesome how he wears the things he likes and he always seems self-conscious with his style.

Because at his concerts I can be myself, happy and forget the whole world for a while.
And then there’s his violinist, Victoria Sutherland. She plays at his concerts (and records) since years. The wolfpack loves her almost as much as Patrick himself. She’s lovely.

There are many more reasons to love him. I’d love reasons why you love him. Or who do you love and why?

Love,

Frankie

PS: Happy 3rd Advent.

I’m Looking Forward To See You.

Hello lovely readers.

Happy first Advent to you. I lighted up the first candle of Advent and opend the first door of my Advent Calendar.
Christmas will be sooon! And 2014 will be soon, too.

I have a lof of great things coming up.

In 12 days I’m going to see Patrick Wolf !
I count the days since months and it’s so great to see that it’s finally less than two weeks.
I really love Mr. Wolf since the first time my ears heard his great music, which always helps me through life.
His lyrics are brilliant.
But don’t ask me about the genre. I can’t describe his music at all. Just listen to a few of his songs, please.
And if you have the chance to see him live, go! He’s a great, great, great live performer.
Sooo, I’m looking forward to see him on stage for the third time 🙂

December - 01

I am also looking forward to visit my favourite city. London.
26 days until my best friend, Theresa, and I will be in England for 5 days.
Theresa has never been in London and wants to see all the classic sightseeing things.
And I want to see Les Misérables at the West End.
We still make plans what we’re going to do, so if you know what we have to do, let me know.
Of course I’ll tell you everything about this journey in January.

December - 03

I’ve already a few plans for 2014.
And I’m pretty sure it will be great!
I’m going to make a new post about the new year on my holidays.

I’d like to know what are you looking forward to?

The City In The Ocean. [Italy]

Hello readers.

I’ve been in Italy a couple of times. As a child with my mom and once with my class.
It’s always nice to visit this country with so old and amazing culture.

Italy - 02

In Verona is the most famous balcon.
The balcony of Romeo and Juliet.
Under that balcony is this grid with lots of locks.
People can buy one and write their names on it. Or you can write a letter with your wishes to Juliet.

Italy - 05

Another famous place in Italy is Venice.
You should travel with the gondolas.
Of course you should also visit the Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco.

Italy - 01

I’ve also been to Lake Garda.
There are many beautiful little towns, e.g. Sirmione or Limone sul Garda.

Italy - 06

What place would you visit in Italy?

Somewhere Between Nature And Childhood. [Sweden]

Hello readers.

Today I’ll tell you about my last journey.

Sweden - 11

This year my mom, our two dogs and I traveled to Sweden. We drove with our car to Lübeck. From there we went by a ship to Trelleborg. So, yes, we finally were in Sweden, but our destination was Mönsteras. We had another long driving ahead.
When we finally arrived. We went for a walk with our dogs and explored our area. After that we had dinner and went to bed.

Sweden - 03

In the next two weeks we lived in one typical swedish wood house.
It was small, but with an beautiful garten.
There we saw this little, cute squirrel.

Sweden - 04

Of course there is a lot of nature in Sweden.
In Sweden live less people than in Germany, even through the country has almost the same size.
Only 21 people live pro km² (in Germany there are 226 people pro km²).
There’s enough place to let the nature be nature. It’s beautiful.

Sweden - 01

We went for long walks with our beloved dogs everyday. They loved Sweden as much as we did.

Sweden - 02

We went into a forest and I think it looks pretty magic there.
I almost hoped to meet a elf.

Sweden - 05

Of course, we wanted to see moose.
But  unfortunately we didn’t see any in their free nature.
We went to an moose park, where we not just saw them, but we also fed them.

Sweden - 06

Sweden is also famous for a lot of beautiful seas.
It’s no surprise. There are so many of them!

Sweden - 08

With all those seas, it’s also no surprise, that there are a lot of ships.

Sweden - 09

When I was a child my mom read to me a book called Pippi Longstocking.
It’s a story about a girl, who lives alone with her horse and a monkey.
She’s pretty strong and has no fear.
I really loved her story.
Well, those stories were written by Astrid Lindgren, who is from Sweden.

In Sweden we went to Astrid Lindgren’s world.
They showed Pippi’s stories on a stage.

Sweden - 16

My mom’s favourite story of Astrid Lindgren is Emil of Lönneberga.
It’s about a boy called Emil. He makes a lot of pranks.
It is really good. If you don’t know books by Astrid Lindgren, you really should read some.

Sweden - 12

We also visited Astrid Lindgren’s hometown, Näs and Vimmerby.
It’s pretty interesting to see where she’s grown up.
In this house live still family members of the Lindgren family.

Sweden - 17

To end this post, I’ll post a random quote from Pippi Longstocking 😀

“But Nightshirts aren’t dangerous,” Pippi assured her. “They don’t bite anybody except in self defense.”
– Astrid Lindgren –

What would you like to see in Sweden?

See you next week,
