An Adventurous Little Road Trip To A Happier Me

Hey lovelies,

I know it’s been a little while since I’ve blogged last, actually not even that long, but for me a week almost seems like forever. But as you all probably know life gets in the way sometimes. I’m finally done with all of my lectures and seminars for my second year of University, which seems incredibly unreal to me because I swear I just graduated high school yesterday. Anyway.. my last week was quite busy so I was so glad that I had this little road trip coming to just to have a little break before exams and get away from everything even for just a little while.

One of my best friends from high school is currently studying in a smaller town close to Munich in Germany. Now I’ve never been to the South of Germany before but I’ve always heard that it’s supposed to be really beautiful down there. As you guys may know I’m currently studying in the Netherlands, so from here that’s a 7 hour car ride. So another one of my oldest and best friends from high school and I decided to take a little trip down there to visit. We’ve all known each other ever since 5th grade, so it was so nice to be reunited for a few days even though I never would’ve thought that would happen down in Bavaria, but life is full of surprises.

So on Thursday evening my friend and I got into the car and about 7 and a half hours later we arrived at our friend’s place. She lives in an incredibly nice apartment within one of those student houses. Being a student myself I’ve seen so many different houses and apartments students live in but hers is by far one of the coolest I’ve seen from the furniture to the view and she pays less rent than I do and my place is not even close to that cool. Since we didn’t arrive until around 1.30am we talked for a while and then went to bed. Well, I slept on the couch because I’m the shortest one.

The next day we slept in, had a nice breakfast and went to the town center afterwards. The weather was incredibly perfect. It was so nice and sunny and not a single dark cloud in sight. The town in general is one of the cutest places I’ve ever seen. If you’ve ever seen images of Bavaria, it actually really does look like that down there. The landscape is absolutely stunning. Everything is so green and you have hills everywhere. The cities itself look so old and traditional and the houses are so cute and colorful.

After strolling through the city center for a while we walked up this hill because there was a castle located at the very top. The castle wasn’t that spectacular compared to other ones I’ve seen before but it was still pretty and you had an amazing view over all of the city from up there. Once we made it back down again we got some ice cream and sat down near the river side and just talked for the longest time. But it was so nice down there with the view and the weather was just amazing. I feel like I’m constantly repeating myself but the weather up in the Netherlands has been awful for the last couple of days, so it was so nice to have such warm weather.

At 6.30pm we got kind of hungry, so we went to this Sushi restaurant. Sushi probably wasn’t the most traditional choice but the food was amazing. Later on we went to the next super market, bought some wine and took the next bus back to my friend’s place. Once we got back we grabbed a blanket, wine and some cookies and chilled out on my friend’s balcony until it got too dark. Even though it was such a simple night and we only had a bit of wine it was one of the best nights I’ve had in a long time. Just sitting on that balcony with a really nice view so far away from everything at home with two of my closest friends was so nice and just made me so happy.

The next day we kind of just hung out, walked around the city again and made some pizza before we had to head back home on Saturday evening at around 6pm again. Even though we basically spend around 14 hours on the road just to spend two days down there it was one of the coolest trips I’ve had recently. I can’t even describe how nice it felt to just get away for a wile from just everything basically. Obviously it was so cool to see two of my best friends again and just hang out and have fun and don’t worry about a thing. I didn’t even mind the long car ride. In fact, I actually enjoyed it. I like car rides anyway and just going on a little road trip adventure with someone I’ve known for years was such a fun experience because we could literally talk for 7 hours straight and the landscape, especially the further South we got, was so pretty to look at. I almost felt like I was in one of those American road trip movies.

I know today’s post is quite different from my usual beauty posts but I just wanted to share my amazing trip with you. Now that I’m back I feel so much happier and relaxed and like I can actually take on all of my exams. Basically if you get an opportunity to just get away from everything, even if it’s just for a day or two, grab it because it feels so liberating in a way. So this is me encouraging you all to just do something crazy and enjoy yourselves!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post!

Much love,

Sophie
