I feel sorry for the lack of posts this month, but I had to carry out some important things and take some measures for the website. Besides, June is the exams month for those who study at the university. You know on June, when the weather is ideal for endless strolls in the park and there are many festivals or activities for free all around the city, I have to stay home and study. But it usually goes like that: I start studying syntax and phonetics but a flashback of some moments on a Greek island passes through my mind, I give up on learning and look at summer pictures. Then I return to my books because some things need to be done, whether you like them or not.
I have many exciting future plans for the world of the Viennese girl, which will not only continue but grow more and more, little by little.
“Vienna in June” is a photo project that I would like to bring to this blog starting this month. Here are some photos of the city, photos that I took during the month of June, photos without any Photoshop, special filters or other editing. Different spots of the city that I hope you enjoy.

Creating a positive world full of lights can be sometimes harder than expected. But my friends and I in collaboration with the 3 companies who are behind this blog are doing their best to ensure that the vision of this blog is possible. You will probably have noticed some changes on the blog these days, as I purchased the theme (which is actually the one that I was using before with some necessary changes.) So that we are still going to have more positive days, more happy days, more love.

It has been 3 years since I moved to Vienna. How do I feel? Strange! I came for 3 months and after 3 years I am still here. Crazy but true! You probably think that I met the love of my life in those first 3 months of living here, who changed my mind and convinced me to stay here. No. That’s not the reason. My life is not so romantic. You might think that I decided to stay here because of the economical crisis in Greece. No. That’s not the reason. There isn’t one reason actually but there are many.
I decided to stay here because I wanted to do something different, I wanted to see how life abroad would be. I somehow felt that I had to bring myself a step further. I had a project whose name was “self-improvement”. Easier said than done, but certainly an ideal to strive towards. I was curious and believed that this experience is worth having. And it is. I was right. Generally, I am very aware of what I am doing, what I want in life and what is good for me. But things don’t go always as planned, because we sometimes depend on others and because there are plenty of things that are out of our control.
Now what? What I have managed? Where have I failed? Where do I see myself in the future? That kind of questions are an endless inner monologue. You also ask yourself that kind of questions from time to time. We all do it, it’s normal and mature. Well, I actually aim to finish my studies and then I will reevaluate things, set priorities, contemplate the future, and make seriouuuus decisions, as usual.♥
