Soooo you guys, last part of my travel diary via pictures! Everytime I look at them I realize again how much I enjoyed it and how inspiring that city is 🙂 Meanwhile in reallife: tomorrow is the last day of uni before holidays and it’s gonna be a tough one (10 am – 8pm). Today though we had a christmas party for the whole uni and it was so cool 🙂 At the beginning it was quite lame and people left because it was mainly mulled wine drining and biscuit eating without interesting interactions. But I somehow knew that I’d just have to stay a little longer and voilà, it was worth it! Pauli (a classmate) and I got to know more students from other courses (game design) and had quite a lot of fun! I love being connected to other uni courses but it can be slightly difficult at the start. However, we grew together a bit more and had a good evening 🙂
It’s been a while, but…
Here I am, back with the first batch of pictures from my trip to Amsterdam. As I said before, Anna and I decided spontaneously to visit our friend and former housemate Millie from Bristol, wo moved to Amsterdam for studying with Erasmus. It’s been a year that we haven’t seen us, from the point that Anna and I left England to swap it for Portugal. In addition, I’ve never been to Amsterdam before (at least I can’t remember) and was so curious ever since Anna started to enthuse about it about 2,5 years ago!
So here we were, in midst of that vibrant city, sourrounded by tons of lovely (coffee) shops, flowers, stunning interiors, open windows, vintage goodness etc etc! Every detail in the centre is just so heartwarming and very obviously made with love! So have a look at the pictures, more are yet to come 🙂
Hello Queens and Princes,
how was your weekend? To start with mine… well, we had a fckng blast!!! Firstly, on Thursday I got the info that all my classes are cancelled for Friday – so instead of uni from 10-6 pm I had the whole day off and could help getting te flat set for the big party! As you may know we had our ‘house warming’-party and were expecting a loooot of friends to come! So we had huge buffet of vegan food, hot and cold, sweet and hearty, a dream-frankly. Anna and Elsa, wo told me more than once that they are to busy to join the party, eventually surprised me and boosted my happiness-level from 100 to 250! Weeell I had a feeling that something like that would happen but in the end you never know and I was just so super super excited to have them around!
On Saturday a comparatively small group of people stayed and we ad a nice long walk in the rain, ten went to the cinema (did you know that there is a new movie from J.K.Rowling that is like a resumption of the Harry Potter movies?? I liked it a lot, quite fantastic but very nice 🙂 After that we had a look at another house party in a ridicilously big flatshare, tey had a proper boiler room in there 😀 So we danced to good old german techno just as if we haven’t had partied all night the night before 😀
We just had such a good time and I am gratefdul for everyone who was part of it! Hasta lueeegooo ❤
Little update x
I went to Schönhauser Allee on monday to get some things I love Germany for, i.e. vegan shampoo for 60 cents and lots of cruelty free products and food for peanuts! I also ad to stop by the mall to get myself a cozy sweater (thanks goodness there are still tiny bits of winter sale items!), because it is still very-very-very cold 😛
On my way back I spotted a poster announcing SCOOTER in concert HAHAHA! That’s so Berlin, actually Anna and I have to go and show off our very personalized shuffle-dance style 😀
Next, yesterday the two of us met at Warschauer Strasse, which I’ve only ever seen by night (party hotspot), but this time I was surprised by its diversity ! We planned to go to GOODIES, a vegan café which -I should have known that before because it’s the same everywhere- shares a place with VEGANZ, our german vegan foodstore chain! Even more surprising was that we found the vegan restaurant THE BOWL on the second floor, which I’ve been following on instagram for ages and never had a clue where to find it! Crazy! So this place is obviously a vegan temple – pure awesomeness! We had incredibly good cake (the one on the picture was mine until I realized that I ordered the wrong one and mixed up the descriptions – this one contains gluten which I can’t have, but luckily I could switch it to a raw vegan stracciatella cake *_*) and a business talk about our latest ´project – stay tuned! xx
