Coffee in Leipzig

  This is what drinking coffee in Leipzig looks like. I miss this city and I believe I should go and pay it a visit sometime this spring, to revisit some of my favorite spots. These pictures are from 2010, the last time I took a trip to my old university city.  

Sydney Day #22 – Mehr Meer.

January 16th, 2013. The advantage of staying somewhere for a longer period of time: it gives you the opportunity to visit some places more than once. So this was the second time I took the bus out to the northern beaches, revisiting Collaroy Beach, Long Reef Aquatic Reserve and Dee Why, plus adding Curl Curl

Sydney Day #21 – Reflection.

January 15th, 2013. The day in the mountains was followed by slow day in the city.

Sydney Day #11 – Circulate.

January 5th, 2013. Actually I intended to go to the beach on this beautiful sunny Saturday. However after having packed the towel and the swimsuit, I would exit the apartment and see the bluest of skies and the whole city below the apartment building being immersed in the most beautiful light. Above my head an

Sydney Day #10 – Swimming.

January 4th, 2013. A grocery shopping and cleaning day. The bread comes from Sonoma Bakery that have a beautiful little place right around the corner on Glebe Point Rd. The choice of bread is marvelous, so is the smell inside – a mix of coffee and bread. Yum. Apart from the bread I bought a
