back from summer travelling.

2017_07_fringetan

aah… holidays… ❤ i just got back from travelling italy for 3 weeks and i’m just getting back into my daily routines in berlin. i spent so much time outside – even i got a tan, hurray! (well, except for those parts of my face at the top of my bangs…)

c. & i were travelling a big round through italy in a vw california (= our vehicle & accommodation). first we travelled via the austrian alps to venice (for the art biennale); then we spent a week at the beaches and in the forest of the beautiful gargano at the west coast and last but not least we were in rome for some days before returning to germany via a short stop at lake como in lombardia.

we saw soo much – different landscapes, the ocean, plants, animals, people, art… my sketchbook almost filled itself just on this one trip – and you’re going to see some of it on this blog in the next couple of weeks 🙂

we stayed at campsites (wild camping is not legal in italy) and we somehow managed to always have a great view from our bus. this is my little collection:

about 3.300 km of driving through sun, wind, sand, mountains, forests, serpentines, also roman traffic – and an invasion of ants (i will get to this some other time)… the bus has seen a lot recently! so that carwash at the end was well deserved. thanks for taking us around, bus!
