A stroll through meadows to Germany

October 22, 2012

Last saturday the weather was so deliciously warm, yet you could feel it was autumn. Ben and I decided to have stroll in the 'Achterhoek'. I really craved grapes, so we decided to walk to Germany (Ben lives close to the German border) and get me some.

On our way we took a pause to drink some hot cocoa and have a bite to eat with toast and goat cheese.
Ben prepared our hot cocoa in a tin cup from WWII which he uses for his re-enactment. Aswell as the Esbit and the other stuff. I was very twitterpated that day and enjoyed our walk so much!

Speaking of Germany; Ben and I decided a short while ago that we want to spend our new years celebration ( Happy 1943?) in Berlin. Does anyone have some tips for us to see, related to WWII or other things from the forties? Anyone that can recommend us a good hotel? Dining places? I would love to hear!

It was delicious!

And eating goat's cheese. Next to cream cheese my favorite!

My clothing:
(This shop is quite pricey but everything is true vintage and in good condition. It's really worth a visit. They even have clothing dating back to the Victorian era))
