Snapshots – Weekend in Dresden

42 days.

That’s exactly how long I’ve been home since our Christmas holiday in the Philippines. And I think I am already suffering cabin fever. My feet are itchy. I want to board a plane and land in a city where they don’t speak English or Dutch. I want to see the sun. I want to eat in a nice restaurant where I couldn’t understand the menu. I want to getaway for the weekend.

But right now, I don’t have time.

So here I am looking back to the same time last year when I decided to buy a ticket on a whim and spend the Valentine weekend in Dresden to watch The Gregorian in live concert.

What welcomed me in Dresden was unexpected.  The city was covered in snow. I was alone and I had all the time to do all I wanted. I didn’t do much sight seeing but a lot of walking. And taking photos. And drinking gluhwein to my heart’s content. And watching the saddest classical concert in exchange for dinner.

I didn’t have time to blog about the trip. Maybe one of these days. Or next winter. There was no blogging scheduled for this week actually. But my weekend in Dresden was a beautiful one so allow me to share it with you even through these photos.

European alleyways, who doesn’t love them?

I am looking forward to my next weekend trip. Any suggestions?
