weekend-ing

Morning
This is what I've just snuck away from to write this post - a glorious summer morning and my lovely European man sunning himself in his dressing-gown. On any given day, you can see half a dozen men sitting on their balcony doing the same. Matthias doesn't quite understand why I find it so curious and, well, funny. But it does make me smile. Everytime.

So the weekend is continuing here on into Monday. A lazy sunny day full of reading and snoozing and generally enjoying life's pleasures. To which I must shortly return. But not before a few pictures from last night's evening spent on the banks of the Spree.

I'm loving the extra day this weekend as well. I've spent today on the balcony reading a good book and relaxing - isn't it perfect.

With gorgeous sunshine like that, I really wonder how you could pull yourself away at all. It's been June Gloom here in San Diego but I think the sun might be visiting for a bit today!

It's also funny to me how germans are almost naked with 20 degrees outside :)). Have a great sunny time.

i remember being struck by how stripped down german men were willing to be in public parks - all in the name of warmth and sunshine. your photos are lovely as always!

wishing i could book a flight to berlin this very second after seeing your pics. while i do love the cool weather after a very hot sydney summer, all these photos of spring and summer from the northern hemisphere make me long for warmer weather!

Very, very nice. The only bad thing about a long weekend is it's all that harder to get back to every-day life.

Summertime in Europe. So delightful. I'm getting wistful...
