With the photos that Margarita took for The Viennese Girl blog, I would like to show you a little part of my University Campus Vienna which is situated in Alsergrund, the 9th district of the city. The University Campus Vienna used to be General Hospital but now is a joyful place, with gardens and bars! Oh and parties, especially when the weather is good!
The imagery we created this time is obviously focused on the big pink tree that blossoms this time of the year. We went to the University Campus Vienna very early in the morning to be sure that no student would be around in order to take a few photos uninterrupted. In the Campus there were me, Margarita and the gardener and it was a great way to start the day. ♥
Munich, the capital and largest city of Bavaria, is characterized by the unique coexistence of strong economic growth and high tech industries on one hand, and traditional alpine small-town atmosphere on the other hand. In a nutshell: Lederhosen and laptops! Dirndls and high heels! And this is unexpectedly fun!
Having already visited Munich for the popular Oktoberfest, I was thrilled to be back for the second time in just one year! I shall admit that I am, once more, amazed by the harmony, that derives from the combination of historic buildings and modern architecture. The past is still present and the future is being born! Simply Munich!
Once I landed in Munich and dropped off my hand luggage at the hotel room, a program full of interesting activities organised by the Munich Tourism Office awaited me, while I was greeted by the team from Mucbook and a group of other bloggers who had come to Munich just for the instameet. The fun started right away as we took the Rikscha and drove to the restaurant Cantina Cantona. Under the mottos “Simply Munich” and “Spring in Munich” we discovered different parts of the city together with the locals. We enjoyed a guided tour at the Munich Kammerspiele theatre, beer tasting at the Jewish Museum, a sweet seduction at Sama-Sama and African Dirndl at NOH NEE.
Regarding my stay at the H’Otello B01 hotel, I have to say that although I am a sucker for 5 star luxury hotels, I can appreciate the warmth and coziness that you can find in this small boutique hotel. Clean, centrally located, with passion for details, it can only be highly recommended from me. That’s why I also took so many photos of the decor and my delicious breakfast at bed…
Thank you Munich for the invitation and the warm hospitality. ♥

I feel a little bad about all the radio silence here but I need to finish a thesis for the University of Vienna that has to be ready by the 20th of April. So, apart from the photography love, I am still a student who deals with thesis and deadlines. However, I always try to find a bit of time for a little stroll in the center of Vienna during the day and I promise to myself that I can always study at night. This time Margarita joined me to that little stroll, and as she always carries her photo camera with her, she snapped some photos of me. I thought I should share the photos she took on The Viennese Girl blog to show you how spring looks like in Vienna.
Which is the best time of the year for you? Which is the best season to visit Vienna? I have always wondered how spring is in Sydney, or in Tokyo, or in Singapore… Maybe because I have never been to those places, so I am just a little bit curious, as always! But soon I am going to discover how spring is in Munich ♥
Paris in March would be described: fascinating and surreal.
In comparison to my last year’s visit in Paris, this time I didn’t take many photos of the city. I didn’t visit my favourite Place des Vosges, I didn’t go to Palais Royal, not even to Café Angelina for that famous hot chocolate, called ‘African’. But I met so many lovely Parisian people who brought me to other places, like Boot Cafe and Marlon restaurant. Besides, the main reason of my visit was the Chanel fashion show, so I was more focused on that and on my stay at my Paris perfect Apartment.
So now you know why I didn’t take so many photos of the city, but those few that I took, it would be a pity not to share them on The Viennese Girl blog as they turned out to be so pretty (I hope you find them pretty as well)♥
