Summervacation pt. 4: Un jour en Strasbourg

A must for an art historian. Studying history of arts and loving the Gothic style/period (also Renaissance is my favorite anyway, more about this soon) I was like a little child on Christmas excited about visiting the Strasbourg cathedral. After studying the significations about the figures etc on the doors/windows and about this special pillar inside the cathedral it was overwhelming for me to see this all in real life.

Besides the great, beautiful cathedral, Strasbourg is a small lovely city with cute places and delicious food. This mix from German with French architecture/style is just so charming. I can really just recommend to visit it once!

Dias lindos. Só estou postando essas fotos hoje, lembrando as minhas férias incríveis que tive esse verão com meus avós e minha mãe. E lembrando o quanto bela a vida é.

summer vacation pt.2 Switzerland

Fairy-tale Land. Switzerland seriously won my heart. Living in Europe, I have already been there once, anyway I can`t remember when the last time was and probably only for some days, or I think we just passed, as it was on our route. 
I grew up in Germany and live in Austria, anyway, even if there may not be so many differences from the landscape between these 3 countries, for me Switzerland is such a cute, fairy-tale land! 
We stayed at my mum`s friend`s house. And there were sheep with bells, which rung in the morning (okay, I admit this wasn`t the funniest, cutest part at all) but the sheep were so cute with their bells and looking at me when I took a picture from them (have a look on the pictures below, SO cute!).
We stayed in Einsideln and went one day to Luzern. 
The only thing that didn`t amuse me at all, was the weather. Unfortunately way too cold for August, where it is supposed to be summer in Europe, I honestly would have loved to jump in this lake! But with 15°? No chance.....
