The rivalry... . . In the Piazza Navona, we can find Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (the Fountain of the Four Rivers) by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. It stands in front of the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone, a work of Francesco Borromini (Bernini's archrival). Rumor has it: The giant figures of the fountain show Bernini's disdain for the church. And this figure, the Rio de la Plata, with its scared expression and left hand raised, supposedly portrays the fear Bernini had for the collapse of Borromini’s church. . #fountain #fontana #statue #church #touristattraction #tourism #architecture #art #bernini #borromini #piazza #piazzanavona #rome #roma #italy #italia

When you want to chase Queen Mary 2, but you’re too lazy to go to her location. So, you would be quite satisfied when you got this small ship instead 😆 . . #ship #schiff #canal #kanal #river #fluss #see #meer #water #wasser #elbe #norderelbe #elbphilharmonie #hafencity #hamburg #germany #deutschland

My guilty pleasure: books, books and books! You can take me to the clothing store and I will buy nothing. But don‘t ever try to take me to the book store because I will buy everything. . . And at home I still have 5 30-liter sized boxes full of books that I haven't read yet 🙈 . #book #books #bookshelf #bookshelves #bookstore #bookshop #bookstagram #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #interiordecor #decor #woodendecor #throwback #porto #portugal

Eärendil? . . Eärendil was the elvish account of the star we know today as the planet Venus. The name Eärendil comes from an Old English poem, Crist: “Éala éarendel, engla beorhtast, ofer middangeard monnum sended.“ (Hail Day-Star! Brightest angel sent to man throughout the Middle-earth). JRR Tolkien was particularly inspired by the lines, so in 1914 he made a poem entitled “The Voyage of Eärendel the Evening Star.“ And Venus, even though it is a planet, it is sometimes referred to as the “Morning Star” or “Evening Star” because depending on where it is in its orbit, Venus is either the first object we see as the Sun sets, or the last object to remain visible as the Sun rises. . In Tolkien‘s Quenta Silmarillion, Eärendil was half-elven mariner who voyaged to Valinor and carried a star (Silmaril) across the sky. So as the elves would tell it, Venus is a man with a really bright jewel on his forehead, sailing the heavens in a magical boat. And according to the elves, Eärendil is their most beloved star. . #star #eveningstar #morningstar #planet #venus #earendil #tolkien #jrrtolkien #sky #nightsky #eveningsky #dusk #summer #kiel #schleswigholstein #germany #deutschland

I can’t recall how many times I visited this place. But I never get tired taking pictures of this beautiful palace and still, I can’t pronounce its name properly: Sanssouci. “Quand je serai là, je serai sans souci.” . . The name Sanssouci (without a care) should be understood as the primary wish of Friedrich the Great, because this was his favorite place for summer retreat and sanctuary in difficult times. Friedrich the Great was renowned for his modesty, epitomised in his saying “A crown is merely a hat that lets the rain in”. . #statue #palace #schloss #vineyard #garden #garten #landmark #touristattraction #architecture #rococo #summer #summerday #summertime #summervibes #potsdam #brandenburg #germany #deutschland
