“Travel brings power and love back into your life.”
― Jalaluddin Rumi


Summer is the most beautiful time to go on holiday, explore new places and enjoy the nature. Is it a relaxing beach vacation or a city trip – the possibilities are endless. After my tropical timeout in Bali with lots of Yoga, Vegan food and magic nature, I spent a few days with my family close at the Swiss border.

I never thought that so close to my home country there are so pretty medieval French villages. Surrounded by endless grape vines and castles, the Alsace is not for nothing world-famous for its excellent wine.

Because we took our dog with us we rented an accommodation only for us (a super cute house). And from there we explored the region and we went also on the castle hike.

Food & Drink

Unfortunately, food wise it was very hard to find vegetarian or vegan meals, because most of the traditional food has a meat base… But nonetheless, it’s worth to indulge the evening in the garden of a cute restaurant and taste the great wine.

See & Do

Comar is a wonderful village and I highly recommend to explore the mysterious alleys and browse the shops. For such city walks comfy shoes, shorts, or a dress are essential. An on evenings I went for a long dress and my beloved Bali bag. 🙂

What are your essentials for the summer holidays? Are you looking for some Outfit- and packing inspiration? Or are you ready for your city trip?

    This place is surreal! The cottages look super cute and are great for taking photos. Good to know that Alsace has excellent wine and I just love your outfits. It’s nice when you look good and feel comfortable.

        I may visit Paris, I have some relatives there so that would be nice, since I’ve never been to Paris. Fingers crossed <3

    What a beautiful place Alsace looks, it sounds like you had an amazing trip! I hope that your dog had fun on holiday too 😊. I have heard that it is quite difficult to find vegan/veggie food in France as they do look their meat over there.

      Thank you Denise!
      Oh yes, France or especially the Alsace is extremely dog-friendly 🙂
      But unfortunately not Vegan friendly 😛

    The place looks beautiful and sounds like my idea of holiday. I love Latvian and Lithuanian villages during summer as there are many lakes and rivers to swim. Glad you had fun.

    I’m always looking to find new places to visit and this place is amazing. I love to travel old places full of history where you can still feel the spirit of their past inhabitants.

      Liebe Héloise,
      Das ist aber toll!
      Dann sprichst du Deutsch und Französisch fliessend? Fährst du öfters hin?
