Hello Vintage Lovers! I had a little bout of "blog fatigue", but now I'm well again! ;) I thought it therefore only proper that I get back on track with a post on my trip to... Berlin (!) were I met my dear blog friend - the fabulous Frollein von Sofa!!!
Please excuse the pictures being all over the place - I fear I've lost a bit of my blog know-how...
I went to Berlin with my friend Carina.
We've traveled before, but haven't seen each other for over a year when we decided to go to Berlin. We arrived this Monday and went back home on Wednesday, really just giving us one full day to enjoy the city. But I must say, we did our very best to do as much as possible! :)
We started our morning meeting Anne or Ms. Frollein as she´s also known, and having breakfast at her favorite cafe Anne Blume. And look at the beautiful flowers in my hair - a gift by the ever talented Frollein!
And what a feast it was!!
There were so many good things to eat - we totally stuffed ourselves!!
Then it was off to the museums. I had always wanted to see the Egyptian exhibition and the famous bust of Nefertiti!
Right: The coffins of the dead. The egyptians lived such rich and detailed lives even when dying!
Left : Canopic jars that held the organs of the deceased.
Right: Busts of Pharao Akenaten and his wife Nefertiti. They were a strange and amazing couple! Read more about Akenaten here.
It was not allowed to take pictures of the famous Nefertiti bust itself, but I've included a photo from the museum itself. However this image simply can't do her justice. Seeing her in the museum was truly feeling the full power of, not only her beauty, but her power. When you look at her you feel her royal presence very much!
This is Echnatons mother, the equally powerful Queen Tiye. It was so beautiful to see so many black features on the statues of Egypt's powerful kings and queens!
The room that almost brought me to tears was when I saw The Ishtar Gate of ancient Babylon, modern day Iraq!
The beauty of the wall and all the other Mesopotamien objects were just amazing!
After the museum we went window shopping, had some coffee in front of the Brandenburg Tor and then a late dinner to the day. Auf wiedersehn Berlin!
