Two weeks in Norderney // part 1

April 11, 2016

Is there a better way to forget about the hustle and bustle of a city like Berlin than a lonely windy beach and the roaring of the sea? Norderney is one of my alltime favourite places for that, almost like a second home by now. It's one of the East Frisian islands, in the north of Germany, with beautiful almost white, almost endless beaches, beautiful dunes and a lovely little town. And the North Sea all around. It has a landscape that sometimes looks almost otherworldly and which I cannot get enough of. The sandy beige of the beach, the greens and reds of the dunes and the million shades of blue of the sea and the sky. A colour palette that speaks of summer, of the sun, of the wind, of storms and rain, of salty air and sandy feet ...

"When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused."
Rainer Maria Rilke


  1. It must be a fantastic place and these photos of yours are just wonderful! I wish i could be there right now! ♥︎

  2. Sooo schön Nancy!
    Wunderschöne Fotos, und wie hast Du denn diese coolen zwei Insta-Widgets da links eingebunden? Das sieht toll aus! Ich suche immer noch nach einem, was gut aussieht und die Seite nicht zu langsam macht...
    Liebe Grüße

    1. Danke, Inka, das freut mich! :) Und das Widget heißt SnapWidget, hier , da kannste so verschiedene Sachen zusammenbauen und bekommst dann einen html-code zum einbinden. Ob es die Seite langsamer macht, weiß ich ehrlich gesagt gar nicht ... mir ist es zumindest bisher nicht aufgefallen :)
