  • Our Last Days of 2015



    Here we are again! Back home in Luxembourg. We didn’t expect to be back from our roadtrip so early, but all the wandering around got me: I injured myself quite badly (thankfully nothing is broken though) on a lovely hike a couple of days ago, so we had to forget about #neverstopexploring and just make our way back home.

    A few days after our little isolated Christmas celebration in Switzerland, we hopped back in our car and drove to the south of Germany, in the Bechtesgaden national park which borders Austria. This was actually more of a spontaneous decision because we saw the beautiful snaps from blogger Dariadaria on her trip to Konigsee and decided we wanted to have a look at it too. The Konigsee is a beautiful natural lake that was formed after the last ice age. Its setting is picturesque as it’s surrounded with rocky mountains and looks very much like a fjord!




    On the day after we arrived in the area, we went to visit that lake and it was truly breath taking. We took the boat to St.Bartholomä, which is a spot in which there’s an interesting pilgrimage church with onion-shaped domes.

    We also found out that there was a hiking trail in the back of it, leading to an “ice chapel”, which made us curious, so we decided to go for the walk. We weren’t properly equipped, but decided to wander around anyway, which turned out to be a bad decision later. The way was beautiful, as we crossed a lush forest and then walked through a large rock field. The chapel was a bit of a disappointment, as it was basically just a dark cave shaped of ice, but then again I have no idea what an “ice chapel” is supposed to look like 🙂

    On the way back from the chapel, I slipped off the way and into the rocky field. Sprained my foot, thought I almost broke my hip, so that hurt really bad, but it was a scare more than anything else. We walked back to the lake and then had to find a place to stay and purchase some tiger balm, which helped a lot. But that evening, I was definitely not in a state of walking. This made me a little depressed because I was excited about hopping back in the car and into a next destination (we were thinking of going to Vienna), but we had to think of slowing down and going back home instead. I guess sometimes our lives and bodies have their own ways of telling us to “calm down”, and maybe this all happened for a reason!




    Despite all that, I just love the feeling of being on the road and not knowing what will happen next. Even if this roadtrip was shorter than expected, it reminded me of this freedom. Another thing I noticed was that we tend to have the most deep, most transformational talks while we are on the road to somewhere. Something crazy happens everytime we are driving for long hours. Maybe it’s because we are bored and have nothing else to do, nothing to distract us from dealing with our own thoughts. We end up asking ourselves important questions, brainstorm around interesting creative ideas. We look back at past projects and experiences but also visualize future decisions and things we want to do in our life and in our business. This is why I will always consider a roadtrip of any length as a remedy for anything. I don’t mean to sound cheesy, but wandering around is truly healing!




    Since we are still absorbing all of those incoming thoughts from the roadtrip, we will be taking it easy now that we are back home, even if it’s new years eve tonight! We will just be staying home, relaxing, sorting some things out and get mentally ready for the new year. I feel more than ready to welcome it, especially after this trip!

    How about you? Ready to tackle 2016?
