We just returned from a long weekend at the Baltic sea. We try to get away each year for a few days to celebrate our wedding anniversary (which is January 22nd). I know it´s a strange time of the year to go on a holiday, much like it´s a strange time to get married, but I´d very much recommend both! Winter weddings can be beautiful (ours was) and a snowy beach that you basically have for yourself is quite wonderful too!
We stayed here which is also something I´d very much recommend. This is a very special little hotel, and while I imagine the design isn´t for everyone - it´s very raw and unfinished with bare walls etc. - I thought it was very beautiful in its own way. We stayed in apartment 6 which was huge and very cozy and had lovely light and pretty views of the snowy garden. Ludwig loved the latter - I think we´ll need to get him a bed with a view!
Our first day was ice cold and sunny, just how I like it. We took a hike along the frozen "Bodden" (I didn´t find a translation for this - a certain kind of coastal waters?) which was very beautiful until our crazy dog managed to escape and disappeared among the reeds to hunt some birds. Not funny and quite dangerous but he eventually came back and all is well. Phew!
The next day was greyish but it had snowed all night so we took a long walk along the wintery beach. Pretty, pretty! Also I´ll take this house with the red shutters, thank you very much. And now we are back and I am already thinking about where we should go next year.
Have a good week everybody! January is almost over which means that spring is near - right?
