layering in vienna

8/28/14
Last week when I was in Vienna with two of my best friends we took the time to shoot another outfit before having dinner at Neni. It was a mild summer evening so the blazer was enough to keep me warm when we left but I was really happy that I took my coat because later that night it got pretty windy. 
I didn't take enough pictures in Vienna to do a separate post about my trip there so I'm just gonna speak about it now. It was my first time in Vienna and I was pretty excited to explore the city as not only I want to start my Master's degree there next year ( oct. 2015) but also some of my favourite bloggers (DariaDaria, LoveDailyDose, ViennaWedekind) call this b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. city their home. I wasn't disappointed, Vienna is an amazing city and I could see myself living there. All I have to do now is finish my Bachelor's degree in Brussels and after that pass the entry tests at the WU. But one step at a time right?:) 

P.s we stayed at the Shermin Hotel in a lovely room called 'Wiener Wald' (every room has its own theme). So if you're ever looking for a place to stay near the city center for a good value, this is it!

D'letzt Woch sin ech mat 2 fun mengen beschten Frendinnen op Wien geflunn an mier haten 3 flott Deeg an deser schéiner Staat. Fier mech war et relativ opreegend Wien ze entdecken, net nemmen well puer fun mengen lieblings Blogger (DariaDariaLoveDailyDoseViennaWedekind) zu Wien wunnen an ech op hieren Blogs emmer driwwer gelees hun, mee zumols well ech d'nächst Joer fier main Master well dohinner goen. Ech guff net enttäuscht, Wien huet mier super gefall an ech kann mier gudd fierstellen selwer do ze liewen. Lo heescht et also daat letzt Joer fun mengem Bachelor zu Breissel ze packen befier ech d'Opnahmexamen zu Wien kann an Ugreff huelen. Mee eent nom anneren :)
Mir hun des Outfit Fotoen eemol Owes firum Eesen goen gemach. Mier waren an den Neni um Naschmarkt, eng Adress dei ech och just kann recommandeiren. Et war deen eenzegen Daach wou d'Sonn ebessen dobaussen war an dofier ass een dennen Blazer fier den Ufank fum Owend gudd duer gang fier mech warm ze halen. Well ech awer wees wei fresch et oowes emmer bei eis haiheem gett, hun ech leiwer mol nach eng Jacket matgeholl dei ech dun och wieklech gebraucht hun well et dach relativ lefteg guff am Laaf fum Owend. 

P.s Mier haten en Zemmer am Hotel Shermin, ganz praktesch direkt beim Karlsplatz. Et ass ee relativ klengen Hotel mee en ass wieklech flott ageriicht an d'Personal as imens leiw an hellefsbereed. All Zemmer ass no engem aneren Thema dekoreiert, mier waren am 'Wiener Wald' an d'huet eis ganz gudd gefall. Wann dier also eemol no engem Hotel zu Wien sicht an daat fier net all ze daier dann ass desen opalle Fall ee Gedanken waert.

Berlin

8/26/14
A few weeks ago, rather spontaneously, I had the opportunity to go to Berlin for 6 days and as I was feeling that sometimes you need to say yes to things instead of no, I took it. So on the 9th of August I boarded the plane to the German capital and that was a first. Berlin's always been on my travel list but somehow I never found the time/motivation to go. Anyhow, I went with a friend and we stayed at the Sana Hotel near Kurfürstendamm which was a great place to stay and explore the city. 
How did I like Berlin? Well that's a bit hard to say... I think it is a pretty cool city, very spacious with a young and vibrant crowd. But I just didn't feel that it was my kind of city. I don't know if you get me but in New York, for example, I felt much more at ease than I did in Berlin, same feelings I had in Vienna a few days later.
Nonetheless I had a good time and enjoyed exploring the city and its restaurants. 

I'd like to point out some of the places we went to which I liked, so if any of you guys are planning a trip to Berlin and are looking for some tips on where to eat, here are mine: 
L'Osteria  for Pizza & Pasta
Hans im Glück for Burger (they have a great selection for vegetarians too!)
Cross Finest Deli for an amazing breakfast (also with Nutella aka my biggest weakness) 
Dean&David for a quick & healthy lunch
Frohsinn Joghurt for frozen Joghurt 
not to forget the yummy Vegan Burger at the Mauerpark flea-market (on Sundays)

Oh I nearly forgot: We went to see 'War horse', a play which I can only recommend, I was fascinated! Their horse creations were incredible, during the play you sometimes forgot that they weren't actually real animals. 




Firun e puer Wochen kruut ech d'Meiglechkeet fier 6 Deeg op Berlin ze goen an opschon ech ebessen gezweifelt hun ob ech sollt goen hun ech geduecht 'wisou net' an hun e Fluch gebucht. Den 9ten August ass et dun lass gang an no enger gudder Stonn am Fliger sin ech zu Berlin um Flughafen Tegel (iwwregens den ellensten Flughafen wou ech bis elo war?!) geland. Ech wollt nach emmer eemol op Berlin mee bis elo hun ech iergendswei ni Zait fonnt oder et huet een gefeelt fir mat, dier wesst secher wei et ass. Meng Frendin an ech haten een Zemmer am Sana Hotel daat just 5 Minuten fum Kurfürstendamm eweg luch, perfekt fier d'Staat ebessen ze entdecken. 
Wei huet mier Berlin gefall? Ech kann et nemmen schweier beschreiwen: Berlin ass eng cool Staat fannen ech, jonk an fresch, mee mier ass et iergendwei ze waitleefeg, net gemittlech genuch. Ech wees net op der verstidd waat ech mengen mee zu New York dat lescht Joer oder zB och zu Wien (puer Deeg no Berlin) hun ech mech einfach vill mei wuel gefillt. Berlin ass secher eng flott Staat, just net 'meng' Staat. Egalwei huet et mer Spaas gemach eng nai Staat ze entdecken! 

Ech well eech epuer fun den Plaatzen soen wou mier gees hun an dei mier gefall hun, flait ass jo deen een oder aaneren fun eech amgang een klengen Trip op Berlin ze plangen an huet sech gewonnert wou een keint eesen goen:
L'Osteria  fier Pizza & Pasta
Hans im Glück fier Burger (mat enger relativ grousser Auswahl och fier Vegetarier)
Cross Finest Deli fier Kaffi ze drenken ( all Platz dei Nutella op der Kaart huet, huet bei mier schon een groussen Pluspunkt) 
Dean&David fier een schnellt an gesond Mettegeesen
Frohsinn Joghurt fier frozen Joghurt 
an den leckeren veganen Burger um Floumaart am Mauerpark (Sonndes) net ze vergeesen

Oh mei lo hun ech bei deem villen Geschreiws nach baal vergees ze soen dass mer d'Theatersteck 'Die Gefährten' kuken waren! Een Steck waat ech just kann recommandeiren. Et huet mech wieklech fascineiert wei d'Schauspiller et hin kruuten dei Paerd op der Bühn opleewen ze lossen, heinsdo hun ech suguer vergees dass et keng richteg Deiren waren!

change is good

8/25/14
For some time now I've been feeling that my blog's been missing something. I haven't felt inspired all that much and I wasn't very happy with what I offered you. I mean I like how my pictures have turned out / have gotten better, but for the writing part I simply don't feel satisfied. I don't know if you knew but my favourite blog is DARIADARIA and I don't just like it because of Maddie's amazing pictures but also because of her writing! It never gets boring and I am always looking forward to her next posts. 
This said, I decided to make my blog a) a bit more personal and b) to not only write in English anymore but also in Luxembourgish. Why? Because sometimes, as English is only my fourth language, I feel like I can't really express myself in the right way. Also I think that this is going to help me connect more with my Luxembourgish readers as I know that not all of them like to read English that much, or sometimes don't even understand it (yet). I am going to keep the English writing alive though and I am going to really try to put in all the information I give in the Luxembourgish text so no worries there. Why keep it up? Because for one,  I don't want to lose my non Luxembourgish followers. But also because I love the English language and apart from watching movies/series in English the blog is my way to keep up my English skills. 
Let's see how this will turn out, shall we?

Zenter enger gewessener Zait schon sen ech net mei ganz zefridden mat deem waat ech hai um Blog presenteiren. Verstidd mech net falsch, ech sin imens zefridden domat wei meng Fotoen iwer Zait besser gin sin, mee trotzdem hun ech d'Gefill dass eppes feelt, eppes net ganz zesummen passt. Wei der vlait wesst ass DARIA DARIA main allerleiwsten Blog an daat ass doduerch dass d'Maddie net nemmen imens gudd Fotoen post mee och super Texter schreift. Et mecht einfach Spaas sain Blog ze verfollegen.
Ech hun also 2 Saachen decideiert: eischtens well ech main Blog ebessen mei perseinlech gestalten andeem ech ebessen mei fun mier selwer prais gin an awer och andeem ech net just nach op Englesch  schreiwen mee och op Letzebuergesch. Dest ass net einfach well et mech vill mei Zait waert kaschten an well, wei dier wesst, eis Sprooch net dei einfachst ass fier ze schreiwen. Mee ech freen mech awer och dorober! Ech sin mier bewosst dass ech net grammatesch korrekt schreiwen, mee fier den Ufank ass et mier am wichtegsten dass dier mech verstidd. Wisou lo decideiren och op Letzebuergesch ze schreiwen? Fier mech gin et 2 Grenn: Eischtens fannen ech heinsdo dass ech mech am Engleschen net ganz sou kann ausdrecken wei ech et gaer weilt, well et jo 'just' meng 4 Sprooch ass. Zweetens hun ech d'Gefill dass ech eech, meng Letzebuergesch Leser, doduerch eischter kann unschwetzen. Ech hun nemlech schon mei oft heiren dass der vill fun eech main Text guer net leesen well en op Englesch ass an daat deen Moment ze ustrengend ass oder awer, well verschiddener (nach) keen Englesch kennen fier et ze verstoen. Ech waert den Engleschen Deel natierlech oprecht erhaalen well ech awer och vill Leeser aus dem Ausland hun AN well main Blog fier mech am Moment ee gudden Wee ass main Englescht, eng Sprooch dei ech imens gaer hun, net ze verleieren.
Ech sin gespaant wei dest waert klappen.
