Happy (almost) Halloween everyone! ... and if you don't celebrate Halloween - Happy October! ;) 

Again this month went by in a blink. I was busy with school and took a short trip to Frankfurt including a visit of the Book Fair during my Autumn break. I also had Bubble Tea for the first time in years. If you are a reader of this blog from the early days on might remember how much I loved Bubble Tea during the big hype back in 2012 or so. I still really enjoy it but almost all the shops here have closed down. 

The tendonitis in my hand got finally better and so I'm slowly starting to get back into crafting. I decorated a pencil case I bought with some bling. I didn't sew the pencil case myself because I'm really not back to my usual skill level with my hand. I had it in a splint for almost 3 month now and it will probably take some time until I regain all my dexterity. That's why I haven't re-started knitting yet. I'd love to but I'm afraid it will make my hand worse again if I strain it too much too fast. 

But the highlight of the month was definitely the birth of our newest nibling. The little cutie was born in the beginning of October and we already visited her for the first time. I didn't post any pictures of her yet since I think it's for her parents to decide how much or how little of their kid to share on social media.

Last weekend Mr. Biest and I went on a short trip to Frankfurt am Main (actually a small town near Frankfurt) to visit family. 

We arrived there on Thursday evening and after the long car ride we went for a walk and stumbled upon a corn maze. Of course we went in there and luckily we found our way out again. We also visited the nearby castle.

On Friday we went to Frankfurt. Well, first we had to wait an hour for our train since there was some construction work on the tracks we didn't knew off ... but in the end we arrived in Frankfurt to visit the Senckenberg Natural History Museum. I remember going there as a child and ever since I wanted to go back. They have a huge collection of fossils, dinosaur skeletons, minerals, taxidermy and anatomical specimens and I just love Natural History Museums so much. After spending the whole morning in there we explored Frankfurt a bit more. 

Coincidentally is was the same weekend the Frankfurt Book Fair was on so on Saturday we went there. I was there once before as a child and I didn't really remember just how crowded it can get! We then spend a lot of our time in the Cosplay area which still was very well attended but not as overcrowded. I nevertheless enjoyed the experience and I even bought a few small things like this super pretty holographic case for my Instax camera!

There is also a short video I put together with clips of this short trip. The music in all my videos is kindly provided by Mr. Biest. I'll leave you the link to my YouTube channel here in case you want to check out my other videos.
