I usually don’t hang out around the University of Vienna during the summer months but my visit this time was due to the instawalk that Igers Austria organized in cooperation with the University of Vienna. The idea of visiting areas where usually students don’t have access to like the rooftop had lead me to decide to join that little group of approximately 10 people last Thursday. I am also studying at the University of Vienna and, what a coincidence, that day I received my enrollment sticker for the next semester.
By the way, now that we are talking about the University of Vienna, I remember that last summer was awful. I had to write two small theses during the summer. That was very unpleasant. But this summer I am very grateful that I have no thesis to write and can enjoy carefree my summer holidays that begin in a few days from now…with that being said, my blog finally will get a bit more summery the following weeks!!
To my surprise, one of the photos I took during the instawalk and posted later on Instagram, has at the moment more than 2.600 likes. That is a lot. Thank you, guys! Not much left to say, I only know that I have to keep on working more and I am determined to do so, even when I have to write thesis at the same time…♥
Instagrammers in Austria organize many instameets and instawalks now and then and one of those was the Instameet that took place today at Hotel Imperial. I would say that this was an imperial instameet, not just a simple one. We gathered around 10.00 and had breakfast. My friend Greg (who btw has origins from Greece and has great Instagram photos) gave a speech and talked about storytelling and its importance in today’s business. After that, Marie Kreuzer, who is the Sales& Social Media Manager of Starwood Hotels in Vienna, gave us a small tour inside the hotel and showed us the suite where once Madonna and Michael Jackson stayed during their stay in Vienna.
I took some pictures of the interior with my photo camera and one picture with my Samsung Galaxy S6 for my Instagram account which you can find here.
In general, joining an instameet in your city – whichever it might be – is a nice opportunity to make new friends, especially if you are new in town. The only condition is that you have to love taking pictures and being a creative spirit in order to be a good match.
I left with a piece of the Imperial cake and with the hope that I am going to win the champagne brunch in a raffle. The winner will be announced in about two weeks. Wish me luck, wish me luck…because I don’t drink alcohol but I love champagne.♥
