Thoughts

Thoughts the viennese girl blog ViennaOne friend of mine who learnt that I have a blog said to me “Oh you are going to be famous”.
This declaration by my friend made me think a lot and there are two comments to make about it. First of all, I don’t think that somebody becomes famous just because he/she has a blog and secondly, the most important thing is that becoming famous is not my goal, not the reason why I started blogging. I don’t think that somebody starts a blog with the aspiration of becoming famous. Things are not that easy. Nowadays there are thousand of blogs, I don’t think we are all going to be famous.

The website was launched at the beginning of 2014. My thought is that everything should be written in English so people from all the continents of the world could understand the content. But writing in English is such a great challenge for me because in the past years I worked more upon my German and Italian languages. As a result, with the passage of time, my English got rusty and through this website I have the chance to improve my English every time I write a post. But the fact that English is not my mother tongue makes it difficult for me to express my thoughts and sentiments compared to the way that I would do it if I was writing in my mother tongue. This is a bit of pity but I try…

My biggest worry was and still is to not appear arrogant, snobbish or boastful. Putting photos of myself might give the impression that there is that need of “showing off”. On the other hand, I am afraid that this site would be so impersonal if I didn’t upload any photo of me. So, there is a constant battle within me between “you shouldn’t appear arrogant” and “the blog shouldn’t appear impersonal”. So, I try to keep a balance and maintain a down-to-earth profile and hope at least that I will not give this false impression of a boastful superficial person.

Besides, I am aware of the fact that having a website means “a big exposure”. And when I say exposure, I mean exposure to the whole world. Everybody can google it, find and read it. And I am also aware of the fact that many people wouldn’t find my content of such a big interest. There is no reason to worry about it because I know deep inside that it is impossible to win them all and that’s totally fine with me. This shouldn’t stop me or anybody in this world from doing what I or you like.

Why I made this blog and why would I recommend you to start blogging too:
The website keeps my enthusiasm alive on every day life and helps me not to fall to a routine. It is like a hobby that keeps you motivated, makes you more creative and inventive. Who doesn’t want such a hobby? After finishing work and university, it’s so much fun sitting in front of the pc, writing, uploading pictures, editing and sharing.

But the most important thing above all is that through this blog I managed to meet such incredible interesting people. I realise that if this blog didn’t exist, I wouldn’t have had the chance to meet them. And this is exactly the reason that makes me wanting keep on blogging.

Let’s say…the best is yet to come.♥

Can you imagine yourself relaxing in an outdoor swimming pool looking at the Alps covered in snow? This is what I did in the Tauern Spa and it lasted one whole day! I was going from the sauna area to the indoor swimming pool and from the indoor swimming pool to the outdoor swimming pool! In other words, it was like heaven on earth, from which you don’t want to escape.

“But how? It is zero degrees outside!” he said.
“So what? All I have to do is relax, enjoy and forget the routine of everyday life.” I replied!

Oh, God of the Water World and sauna, are you listening to me? If only every Sunday could be like that….

10 things that I like to do when in Budapest:

1.    Kürtőskalács. Write down the name and ask for it! I don’t know how to pronounce it, but it tastes delicious.

2.    Enjoying a coffee at the Café New York.

3.    Walking along the Andrássy Avenue reaching Heroes’ Square.

4.    Enjoying the sun at the tables of the Café Gerbeaud watching people come by.

5.    Gazing at the stunning view of the city from Fisherman’s Bastion.

6.    Savoring the smoked salmon filled with cheese cream and goulash soup in the Κiskakukk restaurant.

7.    Having a Sunday brunch at the Gundel Restaurant. Beware that you probably need a reservation, otherwise they don’t let you enter the door!

8.    Walking along the Danube River and watching the city lights is like taking part in a spy drama.

9.    Diving into the vibrant night life in the popular Liszt Ferenc tér and Ráday utca.

10.    The Shoes on the Danube Promenade is the saddest memorial I have ever seen in my life. It takes me immediately back to the day when the Jews fell into the river after having been shot during the World War II.

The Diamond on the Danube is also famous for its thermal baths. At this point I have to confess my disappointment for the Szechenyi Bath. It looks so beautiful in the photos, but I would never go there again. I am a Spa Therme lover and unfortunately Szechenyi Bath didn’t meet my expectations.
