While it was Sarah’s goal to eat a pizza slice a day (even if it meant pizza for breakfast!), my goal was to have a bagel for breakfast every day. On our first day we went to Black Seed Bagel …

Since I don’t know yet how to share all those pictures I took in DC that don’t make up a single post, I’ll share the pictures of New York City and Boston first. After only one weekend in DC, Sarah …

The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen Broken Homes by Ben Aaronovitch As I Descended by Robin Talley Dubuffet. Zeichnungen by Andreas Franzke Another book for non-fiction November, this one mostly annoyed me. It seemed like the author tried to pack as …

Now that we have all those memorials out of the way, we can focus on some other things. Like baseball, for example. I wanted to go to some kind of American sports game, so either baseball, basketball or American football …

The Lincoln Memorial

http://www.lisapetersohn.de/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2016.09.26_1.8-190x143.jpg

You made it! This is the last post at the memorials in DC. I’ve already shared some pictures of Lincoln Memorial here, but I didn’t stand in front of it then and in some of these I do. Surely, that …

 

Der Burggarten in Wien

http://www.lisapetersohn.de/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/2017.10.22_2.3-190x126.jpg

Another post, another park in Vienna. But to be fair, this post is mostly pictures of the old greenhouse because I love these glass structures. Today there’s a restaurant in there and a butterfly house as well.

 

The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial

http://www.lisapetersohn.de/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2016.09.26_1.2.jpg

The Martin Luther King Jr Memorial is the youngest of the memorials around the Tidal Basin (can you tell I finally remembered what the lake is called?). It was only opened in 2011! Yes, I totally knew this by heart …

 

Der Volksgarten in Wien

http://www.lisapetersohn.de/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/2017.10.22_2.4-190x126.jpg

Back to Vienna. We got a bit lost on our way to the city centre – or rather on our way to have some cake – but eventually ended up in the Volksgarten from which it wasn’t that far anymore. …

 

The Franklin Roosevelt Memorial

http://www.lisapetersohn.de/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2016.09.24_2.0-190x143.jpg

Yep, another memorial. I promise after this there’s only two more memorial posts left. This time it’s the Franklin Roosevelt Memorial. It’s the most spaced out – at least I think it is. When I walked there the first time …

 

What I Read In October

http://www.lisapetersohn.de/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/2017.11.01_0.1-190x126.jpg

Just a list of the books I read this month. And maybe some thoughts on those books so I don’t forget what I thought about them. Rubyfruit Jungle by Rita Mae Brown I can’t say I like the main character …
