"That's all folks!" as Porky Pig would say. My final post of the Maldives, one of the most beautiful holidays I have ever been on. Dolphins, flower baths, champagne, chocolate dipped strawberries, stunning scenery and us not wanting to leave sums up these final photos quite well. So now I'll be taking you back to Berlin and outfit posts, at least visually. I have to give myself a much needed kick in the ass to start taking my camera around Berlin with me more often.

Das war's! Meine letzten Fotos von den Malediven, eines der schönsten Orte, an denen ich je war. Delfine, Blumenbäder mit Champagner, in Schokolade getauchte Erdbeeren, die wunderschöne Insel und, dass ich noch gar nicht zurück wollte, fassen diese Bilder wohl am besten zusammen, besonders das Letztere! Jedenfalls geht's mit meinen Outfitposts wieder los und auch mit meinen Berlin-Bildern. Da muss ich mir mal gehörig in den Arsch treten, die Kamera öfters mit mir rumzuschleppen.

Looking at these pictures now just makes me want to hop onto the next plane and fly back. For the second part of our honeymoon Alasdair and I flew to the Maldives to the Four Seasons Kuda Huraa resort. After all our wedding stress and running around Paris for three days we were in serious need of relaxation, as in doing nothing but lying at the beach, snorkeling and drinking fresh fruit smoothies. It was one week of pure bliss. Here are the first photos, mostly of our beautiful bungalow. Tomorrow I have some photos of the island to show you!

The final Paris photos. This was the first time I had been to Paris since I was 14. We had such an amazing time and despite what I've heard, the Parisians were really lovely. The city is beautiful but super hectic, quite different from Berlin in that aspect. I loved the ambundance of delicious food and wine, the cleanlyness, everyone was so well dressed and the shopping is amazing! I'd love to go back and check out some vintage stores. Having a petit dejeuner every morning was perfect but the prices in Paris are everything but that. Everything is more than twice as expensive as in Berlin. A beer for 8€?! Are they insane?! It hurts me to pay more than 2.50€!

Also quite memorable, buying two eggs thinking they were cooked for our picninc and then cracking one of them over my knee. You can imagine how the rest of the story went. I don't think I've ever seen Alasdair laugh so hard. Drinking wine in the park and buying the worst cheese because we had no idea what was what, strolling down the streets at dusk, having a waiter feed Alasdair escargot (yes it happened!), spending about 3 hours running around trying to find a decent place to watch the tennis, going to the Louvre in the evening trying to sneak into a private party (it didn't work), chatting with an insanely smashed man who fell asleep behind his own bar after serving us plates of cheese...the list goes own. So many small adventures, I can't wait to go back!

See You on the Other Side

Alasdair and I took these photos at our wedding venue, Kloster Eberbach, during our quick weekend trip filled with appointments and the atmosphere on this cloudy and mist shrouded day was just magical. These photos transport me to a different world filled with enchanted forests and hobbits. We found broken slates, hidden bird nests and secret doorways at the end of a field that was part of the monastery grounds.

An appropriate outfit would have been a long lacy dress or something else romantic but my morning hangover, lack of sleep and tiny suitcase meant I had to wear the "tougher" outfit I had packed. The thick shirt and jumper mean I look like a miniature version of the Michelin man, at least on top. The 90s really have a hold on me.

I am wearing a vintage jacket, H&M jumper, vintage denim shirt, Nudie Jeans jeans, Doc Martens boots, Moxham bracelet and a Deadly Ponies bag.
