The EuroTalk February Photo Challenge is still on, and so far I haven’t missed any days (although some have been pretty close to the wire). Here’s week 3:
day 15 – lazy sunday
Since Christmas, I’ve been working my way through the Friends box set my friend gave me. Last Sunday evening I decided to chill out with a couple of episodes; at about 22 minutes each, they’re the perfect way to fill a bit of spare time, and always make me smile 🙂
Language bit: Friends in German is Freunde.
Day 16 – water
This photo was taken on my first trip to Guernsey last May, looking out across to the lighthouse from Castle Cornet.
Language bit: Lighthouse in German is der Leuchtturm, and the sea is das Meer.
day 17 – happiness
Lots of options for this one, but on Tuesday there was one that stood out. My awesome colleague Safia spent hours making us all pancakes for Shrove Tuesday. And, as you can see, they were amazing.
Language bit: Pancakes in German is Pfannkuchen.
day 18 – memories
A few years ago, I spent a week in the beautiful island of St Kitts in the Caribbean with three of my closest friends. Between the lovely surroundings, great weather and fab company, it was one of the best holidays I’ve ever had. (And possibly the origin of my sunset obsession. Check out that sky.)
Language bit: holiday in German is Urlaub.
day 19 – sweet tooth
Another holiday shot, this time of churros y chocolate in Barcelona last year. We were told this cafe did the best churros in the city, and while we didn’t have time to test that theory by trying all the others, I can confirm they were pretty good.
Language bit: churros y chocolate en Barcelona (Spanish), me gusta mucho! 🙂
This week I had to go back to work after a week off, so it was a bit of a struggle to drag myself out of bed every morning. Not to mention I was out most evenings, so by Friday I was ready for a quiet night in.
Language bit: glass of wine in German is das Glas Wein.
day 21 – fashion
I don’t really do fashion, so I had to go back in time a bit for this one. Here I am when I was little, modelling the ultimate in 80s style. I’ve never been very good at smiling for the camera…
Language bit: child is ein Kind.
