I was lucky enough to go on a very short trip to Australia for a wedding. You might not know that I spent a year in Australia in Western Australia a couple of years ago, but I went back two weeks ago to visit my host family for the wedding and I just wanted to share a couple of impressions! I didn’t have too much time for any sightseeing or taking many pictures in general but I must say, that I love Australia’s sunsets and landscape so much! So, that’s basically all I took pictures off.
Two friends and I went to the Netherlands for a day last week, to be more specific to Kerkrade. That we went there was a random choice, because we started driving in the direction of Netherlands with the train and then looked on the map and chose the closest town to our point which we could reach with our ticket. So, this is how we chose Kerkrade of which I hadn’t heard before, but when we arrived we realized that the town had a large music festival going on! In town, there were little bands and marching bands and the whole town square was built up for people to eat/drink and have fun!
Last year on the same visit in the USA when we went to Jacksonville, we also visited Washington DC. We got there by Bus and stayed in an Airbnb nearby to be flexible. Nearby is an understatement though, as we still had to walk very far to get everywhere, but it was nice. Unfortunately most of the pictures look sad, because the weather was really cold and rainy when we were there in December.
Causas is a Peruvian restaurant I went to with a friend and we decided to share a couple of starters rather than main courses so we could try more different things. So we had Anticuchitos de Pollo, Empanadas Fritas de Carne, Causa de Pollo and Yucas Fritas con Huancaina. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the Empanadas, but they and everything we ate was really yummy! I can definitely reccommend the food! Read more!
Yesterday was a pretty successful day for me as, now that I’m working at my internship full time and spend 3 hours of my day in trains, I don’t actually have more time or energy to blog, than I thought I would have, considering I don’t have to study at the moment. So, I actually couldn’t keep up with my own schedule for posting, but then something in my brain changed and I understood, that if I don’t always manage to publish two posts in a week (Tuesdays and Fridays) like I planned, it doesn’t matter. Nothing’s going to happen to me if I don’t publish a post, like it was planned! No boss will be angry at me haha. Read more!
One thing my dad told me once, is something he learned in a monastery where he took part in a seminar over three days. The theme was happiness, health, silence. One workshop they did was to write their own funeral speech. They should write about what they wanted people to say about them. For example, that someone would say, that they were a very kind person and very helpful, always happy, hard working etc. whatever they want people to say and think about them. Read more!
I was gifted the book ‘Eat like a Gilmore’ by Kristi Carlson from two good friends of mine and of course it is an amazing book to me and I was really happy that I got it, simply because of my obsession with Gilmore Girls. Read more!
I went to this place called ‘Romeo und Julia’ the other day with some friends, and I must say I wasn’t disappointed! First of all, the name is really sweet! This place offers egg-waffles with frozen yogurt and toppings. As I absolutely love frozen yogurt and also like waffles, I thought it would be a good idea to try these waffles! Read more!
Now I finally published a post again after nearly a month without blogging! Not having time to write was exactly what I wanted to avoid, but now I experienced what it’s like to not have enough time for everything so I’m even more keen to have posts ready for a while in advance in the future. Read more!
Who doesn’t have a travel bucket list? I, of course, have one, too, and I would love to visit at least some but as many as possible of these places! And when I do, you hopefully will be able to read about them in my blog hehe!
I was never one of Audiobooks as I thought it wasn’t something I like compared to real books. I love Goodreads and the feeling of excitement when I can tick a new book as ‘read’ and I feel that with an audiobook I can’t do that as I haven’t ‘achieved’ anything by just listening to it. By the way I would love a movie/show version of Goodreads! Does anything like that exist? Do you know anything similar? Please let me know if you do!
Anyway, I never thought of podcasts either and the only ones I knew are the one from ‘Chicago fire’ where I don’t even know if it actually exists and the podcast by the ‘Gilmore Guys’. As I love Gilmore girls more than anything I decided to finally give it a try and I must say I’m not 100% convinced yet that I like podcasts but I’m enjoying ‘Gilmore guys’ much! Read more!
