Green Grass. Blue Jeans. Windmills & Sheeps. Netherlands.

apeksha and vishal

We quite envy the people who live this life every single day of their lives. It must be fascinating to be surrounded by windmills, sheeps, ducks and blooms all year round! Waking up to the sounds of chirping birds and sleeping in absolute silence. One day here & we side with countryside. Beginning the day with rolling on the grass and doing absolutely nothing for a change. Crossing multiple dream houses. Ultimately choosing the one with a garden. On the streets…

Netherland’s Backyard

vishal and apeksha boating

We might be city bred & born but a little downtime in countryside hurt no one. Infact a countryside holiday should be referred to as the vacation cleanse. Especially when its Broek in Waterland, a tiny village with population of just 2000 people. We call it Netherland’s backyard. Strokes of color and perfectly placed trinkets in the lanes of Broek are as if the town came alive from a painting. We parked ourselves by the river, letting the afternoon pass by…

Tulips & Trotting, Amsterdam

tulips

By the time we got used to our heart skipping a beat at everything we saw in Amsterdam, we realized we were far from it. Just outside our hostel was the grand Concert Gebouw, a treat for music lovers. Though you got to book a show beforehand. And the postcards coming to life. Amsterdam at this time of the year is at its beautiful best. The flowers begin to bloom and if you do not wish to go as far…

A Crush on Amsterdam

apeksha

Unlike the usual notion that Amsterdam revels under (obviously, coffee shops and weed), it actually smells of happiness. Yes, you can’t really smell happiness but it walks with you past the canals, in the park and on cobbled streets. Just a simple walk around the city is gratifying. Underground houses peep over. And the symmetrical buildings stuck together make up for magical architecture here. Amsterdam is made up of 100 kms of canals and 1500 bridges. So its safe to…

Ski & Sauna, Black Forest

skiing

We woke up to crisp white mountains and trinklets of snow on the tree. Best weather to dunk your biscuits in hot tea. There is a certain comfort in putting on your fuzzy socks and sitting by the snowflakes, listening to the sound of silence around you. Islands might be our favorite holidays but mountains are for serendipity. Have a SNO-ring weekend ✋ A photo posted by Apeksha Vishal (@thing2gether) on Feb 20, 2016 at 12:34am PST We were done…

Snow A Gogo, Black Forest

vishal and apeksha black forest

After breakfast we had the snow day to ourselves. Just outside our room, the hotel windows overlooked drizzles of snowflake. Pretty much non-stop. Familien Haus Feldburg-Falkau could easily pass for a massive private bungalow on three levels. Just walking along the glass doors painted with snow felt homely. Snowballs were waiting and though we were stepping out in negative temperatures, there was nothing we had not signed up for. Since the hotel could only give us access to as much…

Black Forest, Germany

apeksha vishal back

When you start your day with a rainbow, what’s ahead is magical. Driving to Black Forest, Germany for skiing and bucket loads of snow turned out to be a titanic of a weekend. Soon after crossing Frieburg, the roads began to swirl. Revealing thousands of snow covered trees, one turn at a time.   We had booked 2 nights stay at Feldburg Falkau familien haus, a property very close to the ski area. There is a supermarket very close to…

The Frankfurt Carnival

frankfurt zeil

Germany’s ever famous tradition came alive last week. Bang in the center of Frankfurt, a parade walked down, throwing goodies at the crowd, singing and dancing and making merry with beer. The Frankfurt carnival happens once a year and almost all of Frankfurt is on the streets. Colors were sprinkled on the pathway of the parade. And humans came in every size & shape, grooving to their own tunes. Even the crowd dressed up to the occasion. The German horses stole…

A Happy Sunday

restaurant in frankfurt

On Sunday, we were craving some health food. The restaurant next to our house in Frankfurt serves such. Green Sauce & More stirs up middle eastern cuisine jumbled with German dishes and fruity cocktails. It was a rainy afternoon. So we got very comfortable at the restaurant, spending a lot of time, waiting for the rains to stop. Initiating a trippy start to please our sweet tooth. And then loading Falafels, Flammkuchen & salad on our table. Flammkuchen, the cousin…

On an evening walk, along the Main river in Frankfurt, our subjects waded through cobbled streets, had a hundred colors and kept us entertained throughout. In #1 travel photography project, we have captured the happy lives of ducks in the evening hours. The mood of the city was fine & charming as the log trains crossed over our heads. And in the middle of all this, an ideal bench waited for us. & swings to play. The walk ended with Flammkuchen…

Pub Crawl, Prague

It was the first day of the year. And it was a day before we left Prague. Crawl with me announced their hangover pub crawl.

So we started off with Chapeu Rogue. Where we warmed up with a few cocktails. And…

Historical Fantasy Show, Prague

Prague is a land of mystery & history. We had seen that a day earlier on our vintage tour.  But to see it unfold visually, we chose to go to U Pavouka, the spider medieval tavern for dinner and a historical fantasy show. The moment we entered the restaurant, we knew it was going to be a great night. The decor was ancient yet so romantic. A spread of melting & burning candles lay ahead of us. And to accompany, a grand…

A Long Drive, Prague

vishal and apeksha

The next afternoon we were up and ready to throw some snowballs at each other. It had snowed all night long. We had a late morning, it was freezing and we lazed around with breakfast at the hotel. But then, you can hardly resist the beauty of a snow clad Prague, so we went on a long drive. While waiting up for our ride to be ready and freeze free, a little walk became mandatory. And some stretching too. But mostly,…
