Happy Thursday my lovely friends,

(Werbung/ad – Ortsnennung/place marked)

since we are all trying to get back a piece of normal life and outdoor activities are more in demand than ever I wanted to share our visit to the Eibsee in Grainau, Germany. We went last year and between my pregnancy and upcoming Fall content I totally forgot about it but I think now is the right time.

The Eibsee is called the Caribean Sea of Germany because of its incredible blue water. The colors are insane in real life at least for a lake. 

It was a 2 1/2 hour drive from where we life. The lake has a hotel with the prettiest view as well as a huge parking lot. From there you can either go up in a gondola to the top of the 2.962 m high Zugspitze or you can go down to the lake. We went there to have a look at the lake so that wath our path.

A big restaurant is right at the lake and not far from the parking lot at all. You can sit outside and enjoy the most beautiful view of the Eibsee. We had lunch right after we arrived and it was just gorgeous. From there inspired by all the people in the water we decided to rent a small rowboat and explore the lake by boat.

Other rentals they offer are small motor boots and SUP´s. I really can´t remeber how much it cost but you can book half and full hours. We got our boat right away and headed out on the lake. Unfortunately some short time after that a thunderstorm rolled in and we had to get back to the shore.

If you don´t want to be in the water you can hike around it. It takes about 2 hours to get around and you can start either way. We only went about 20 minutes in one direction because it started raining again. The weather is very unsteady and unpredictable as the lake is surrounded by mountains, it also changes quick.

There are cute little bays and also big rock to sit which make awesome picture points. If you life in the area or passing through I would totally recommend spending half a day at the Eibsee. If you just plan on walking around the lake all you have to pay is parking and not more.

But keep in mind it is a very touristy place and although you can stay outside you probably won´t be able to keep your 2 m distance all the time.

Buon Giorno,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

it´s been almost 5 weeeks since we are back from Lake Garda and I am finally coming around to write my last travel post in terms of this vacation. Read my Food Guide here and my Verona Travel Diary here. 

We checked-in in the afternoon and only hang out by the pool until it was time for dinner. After we dressed up we went down to the Peschiera city centre and had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants.

But you don´t have to be by the pool every day, there are plenty of acitivites you can do around the lake. I have rounded-up some activities we already did or planning for the next time.

What to do:

 – visit the surrounding cities (we already visited Garda, Lazise, Sirmione, Bardolino, Peschiera del Garda, Verona, Milan,

 – go to the market (there are local markets every day, our favorite one is on Thursday in Barodlino but we also visited the market in Garda on Friday and Peschiera del Garda on Monday)

 – play mini golf (we love to go play after dinner, also it isn´t as hot anymore)

 – shop ´till you drop (Affi has a huge shopping centre with different Italian stores, also shopping in Verona is great and every little city of course has its own shops)

 – bath in the Lake (there are places which don´t belong to the hotels everywhere)

 – go wine tasting (I always wanted to do 

 – visit the Gardaland theme park (I have been years ago and it has evolved so much, there are a ton of new rides so whether you are a rollercoaster junkie or you are visiting with your toddler there is lots of fun for everyone)

 – go on a ferry ride to another city

 – go to a dinner show (there are two dinner shows available – a Rock´n Roll dinner show and a Medieval Times dinner show)

 – rent a boat (only possible if you have a boat license, the lake is huge and the cities can also all be visited by boat so if you are fed up of riding your car give it a try)

 – go parasailing (I have done this years ago and for 50 Euro I would say it is totally affordable and you have the greatest view of the lake you will ever get, awesome experience)

 

This are some of my top recommendations if you want to do a little more than lying by the pool.

If you want to know more what to do feel free to mail me. 

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Good morning friends,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I am starting the new week with a vacation post from Lake Garda. I have taken so many different swimsuits with me but only came around wearing three of them cause some days it was just to hot to sit outside at the pool or the lake. I really didn´t want to get sunburned at all.

Since it is going to be the end of summer soon and vacation time is in its high some of my original pieces aren´t available anymore but I have linked the closest pieces I could find under every look.

Swimsuit Round-Up

I personally love to add all kinds of accessories to my swimsuits. A plain swimsuit can be totally fine but bringing it to the next level by adding trendy pieces like colorful sarongs, dramatic statement sunglasses and woven sunhats makes so much more fun. It may not be super parctical for going into the water but let´s be honest, the majority is not going to jump into the pool all the time or dive her way through.

Another thing I highly recommend is wearing a sarong or a kimono to the beach bar. Although it is a beach bar the people who come after you don´t want to seat on a chair were your sweaty butt has been a minute before. I wouln´t want it and I am sure most people wouldn´t too. For me this just belongs to etiquette.

Hoping your week starts well. I am super tired today and have to pick up several pieces in our garden after a huge storm hit us last night. Haven´t seen so many lightnings in a long time. To be honest it was a little frightening.

My Lake Garda Travel Diary is coming to the blog this week but if you are on the search for different travel content check out my travel tab here and to find out what we did in Verona or what we ate all week. Fall posts are hitting the blog very soon cause I have to honestly admit I am in kind of a summer rut. I don´t want to dress for the heat anymore and also I don´t want it to be hot anymore.

Happy Monday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

can you remember my amazon fashion try-on haul from a few weeks ago, were I also introduced you to this beautiful flowy maxi summer dress that is available in 18 different colors and under 30 Euro ??

I have been dying to wear this dress and I finally have on our first evening in Peschiera del Garda. It is the most flowy and airy dress (which was much needed with these high temperatures) and the perfect outfit to style for dinner. I think you could also easily dress it down by wearing a pair of gorgeous sandals and a denim jacket. Since it was so hot I haven´t paired that much with the summer maxi dress. Only a pair of yellow wedges and a super fun mexican pinata inspired clutch I got from Asos. 

Probably one of my favorite summer dresses ever with the high neck and the waist band. It has lining underneath and sheer from the knees downwards.

The dress only is available in one size. I usually wear a medium in dresses and it fit fine loose for me. So if you are wearing size large I think it would also be a great fit.

As always thanks for stopping by and have a great start into the week.

P.S. It is international lipstick day today so in honor of that I am sharing my favorite orange lip color shades in the afternoon. Stay tuned and check back.
