Happy Monday y´all ( I wish I could speak southern english ;-)!
Our vacation is over but just thinking back it still makes me happy! We decided on this vacation in August. At that point it looked like it would be the only time this year we could take off and go somewhere and I really felt like I needed a break to relax my body and mind. I truly feel like you dont have to go on vacation and spend a ton of money in order to be relaxed and happy. And if I had known that our circumstances would be like they are right now, I probably would have stayed at home and made it really cosy and relaxed. A couple of years ago we did not want to spend money we hardly had, so we made a list with all the things we wanted to do together but never got around to when both are working. And we had the best week!
Having said that its also fun to travel, have a change of scenery and pace and the hotel in Austria was just that. It had the best food and spa and snow!! I‘m not sure if I have seen more snow in my life ( I probably have because HELLO Saskatchewan, Canada haha) but it was more snow than the last 8 years combined in Germany. So pretty!
There is something about looking out the window and everything being white and snowy! Its so pretty and it makes me instantly very happy!
I LOVE reading. It has been my favourite thing to do on vacation as long as I can remember. It´s the perfect combination of relaxing somewhere but still having input.
Here I´m reading a biography about Dag Hammarskjörd.
The biggest luxery on this vacation was the food. It was included in our room price and it was all local and organic and just incredible. We ate way too much every single day haha
Going to the saune and working out may be on the opposite side of things but both relax me and fuel my body and mind like nothing else. Since we moved I haven´t taken the time to do either and it felt so good to get back to it. Since I deal with a lot of headaches I have found that exercising really helps me mentally and going to the spa and sauna helps me physically. So its the perfect combination to have both at hand.
I hope you do something on this Monday that relaxes you and fuels your body and soul!!
Lots of love!
