I’m so excited to finally show you guys a few pieces of our new German home for the next few months, Lindau. Lindau is a smaller (population 25,000) medieval German town that’s partially located on an island in Bodensee (aka Lake Constance). The old town is right on the island, and it’s connected to the mainland by a bridge. Lucky for us, it’s a quick walk from our apartment.
The island of Lindau is like the perfect fairytale village. Flowers and vines spill out of window boxes attached to picture-perfect colorful homes. A quick walk through town will lead you to the harbour, where you’ll see Lindau’s iconic lion and lighthouse statues welcoming boats. Across the water you can see the Austrian and Swiss Alps. Doesn’t this sound like a setting for a Disney princess movie? The beginnings of Lindau date back to year 882. Though the homes obviously don’t date back quite that far, you can see their age in the photos – buildings lean every which way, some bulge out in funny directions. And at the same time they are all perfectly stable. Every time I find myself walking down an alley I feel like I’ve been transported to a scene from Harry Potter. It’s really magical.
This outfit is one of my favorites for walking around – a light jacket, comfy t-shirt (I love this one and it’s only $16), jeans, and flat shoes. These booties are seriously amazing for walking – the footbed is padded making them even comfier than some of my sneakers. Last time I wore this jacket I received a lot of comments on where to buy it. It’s actually the same exact jacket as this one, just without the belt. They don’t sell this color anymore, but if you like it I suggest checking out this jacket, the color and style are very similar to mine, but it’s $100 less.
Lindau is such a cute place, and I highly suggest stopping by for a trip if you’re ever in the area. The Alps views across the lake itself are well worth the trip. As always, don’t forget to link up your fashion related posts in the Fashion Frenzy Linkup below and happy Wednesday!
