Hi everyone! Last week was a mix of just everyday life and some spacial stuff going on. For a start the week began slowly, me and Stefan went to the gym, he worked and I did some reserch for the company and we had some nice kebab for lunch. I also did planing for this weeks visit at IKEA and tomorrow I will move for real. Can't waaaaaait!!! As you can see in my calender i also finnished an assignment for the Video editing cours at UNI.
 
 
We went to the gym a second time this week and I like to go there together with Stefan. It makes it more fun! Then we also did some exploring (or it was only exploring to me) of the city. We went to the 19th distrikt and then to the 9th for a visit at a very cozy christmas market at the universety area. I think we both would have enjoyed it more if it has not been so damn cold... But in another way I love that it's getting colder and the first real snow came to Wien this week. 
 
 
Here are some more pictures from our little tour in the city... 
 
 
SNOW! If you have followed my blog for a while then you know that I love snow and all that has to do with it, or yeh almost everything... I really wish for some snow in Sweden over christmas. That would make it so much more cozy and magical. I'm looking forward to christmas a lot! To meet my family again, see all relatives at christmas and meet some friends that I have not seen for a while. Therefore it was extra fun to get some christmas feeling while we visited 3 different christmas markets this weekend. The first was in Wien, the second in St.Pölten, where we also met a friend of Stefan and the last one was in Mariazell. I think the last one was my favorite because of the location. Mariazell is located in the mountains and the road there from Wilhelmsburg was a real mountainroad in some parts and it was so cozy. I really enjoy to visit christmas markets before christmas. It gives me joy and so much christmas feeling. Thanks to Stefans mom who came with us and also his sister for a nice day. 
 
 
I still have a lot of pictures to show you from the roadtrip we made two weeks ago. This place called Bad Ischl was the first stop. Here we went for a strole threw the town and sat down at a cozy cafe right next to the river. I must say it was a very idyllic place and I'm happy we spontaneously stoped there. The little town had cozy streets, nice surroundings and that cute train drove threw town with tourists. What Stefan told me the town is famous for their "Thermen" and Spa hotels. People comes there to relax, hike and enjoy the different spa options. There were also some royal buildings and monuments. Who knows, maybe the kings and queens also stayed there... Haha I don't know, but it was a nice place and I can recomend a visit if you are in the area.

Hallstatt

Adventures & Travels

Hallstatt was really like a dream come true! I've seen that view on pictures so meny times and been dreaming of going there ever since the first time I saw it. Now I've been there and it was really an amazing place. The only thing that destroyed this town a bit was all the chinese tourists and they where all over the place. They ran around with theire cameras and selfiesticks and that kind of destroyed my picture of Hallstatt a bit. It was really hard to concentrate on the surroundings when there was a chinese tourist or a sign in mandarin where ever you turnd your head... Okey, it was maybe not that bad, but bad enough that it destroyed the experience. The restaurants was overpriced of cause and there were a lot of tourist shops. That's not what I want to see when I go to a place looking like that and it's sad that the town changed so much because of the tourism. But over all It was just as beautiful as it looks like in all the pictures and it's absolutelly worth a visit. I think I would recommend to go there eighter in the very early morning (if you are there to take pictures) or in the later afternoon. I was there in the middle of the day and you as a photographer know that it's very hard light then. That made it to a bit of a  challange for me, but I think it turned out okey in the end. Hit me with questions about traveling to Hallstatt, if you have them!
