'Viva la Boheme' is the slogan of ecofashion store iki-M that I visited just before Christmas. And that is definitely how I felt the whole week, travelling through winter wonder Germany and Austria. While the snow covered Alpine landscape enticed us from the train window, we lost ourselves in Charles Dickens' stories. We feasted on great raw food at Greeny's and admired Alfons Mucha at the Hypo Kunsthalle in downtown München. In the Pinakothek I was happy to discover that museumshops offer the latest in green design books. Even the Christmas markets cater for LOHAS consumers offering bio sausages and yummy organic glühwein.Covered in blankets we inhaled the healthy air deep in the salt mines of Berchtensgaden while diving into deep meditation by the sound of Tibetan singing bowls. In Salzburg we heart a gypsy band playing Mozart and went back in time in the castle where Sissi dresses still offer inspiration to contemporary designers. Just in time before closure we visited the dome to light a candle in the dark as a token of gratitude for all that beauty.
But while culture & nature treated us so well this week, we kept warm through spending lovely time with family and friends. Merry X-mas!
