My Paris perfect apartment was located in the Avenue de La Bourdonnais. Uber left me in front of the door. I stopped for a while and looked up. Having an apartment with a view of the Eiffel Tower wasn’t anymore one more part of my unlimited imagination but it was about to become my daily reality. For a moment, all the apartments I have lived in in the past unfolded in front of my eyes and I caught myself reflecting on “how far I‘ve gone”. I snapped a picture to freeze the moment with a little hope that this moment will last forever. The lift, one of those old ones, brought me to the fifth floor. After I opened the door, it took me some time to realize what is happening. My Chambertin apartment blew me away, from the moment I stepped in till now as I write this post. I called a friend of mine and asked “what’s happening and where all this is going?

The days that followed were as dreamy as my Paris Perfect Aparment: every morning breakfast at the balcony, hot evening baths, encounters with endearing Parisian people, a dazzling Chanel fashion show and in the background a bling bling Eiffel Tower hypnotizing me every night on the Avenue de la Bourdonnais.♥

Model: Bettine Buda
Ball dresses: Peek&Cloppenburg
Location: Hotel Bristol

Here I am again, this time with some photos from the last photo shooting I had at Bristol Vienna with my sweet Bettine. A photo shooting at the balcony of Bristol Vienna is something that I had in my mind since last summer and I finally realized it in a warm February day. We were very lucky to find a warm day in the middle of February and it was pretty awesome being in the balcony wearing a ball dress without freezing and knowing that it’s February in Vienna. This was my little project between me and Bettine and special thanks to Bristol Vienna for giving us their rooms….I just want more of those photoshootings in the future, although it was a lot, a lot of work…♥

When I got the invitation to visit Bad Gastein, I somehow felt like that it was going to be an exciting weekend, and although I had to study for the upcoming exams, I bought a train ticket, packed my luggage with warm clothes and left for the mountains without giving it a second thought. You have probably seen it on my Instagram that I have been to Bad Gastein but on The Viennese Girl blog I publish photos that you cannot find on Instagram.

That weekend in the Alps was extraordinary and magical. As you can tell from the photos, everything was covered by snow and although I was freezing, I was happy to be there, taking pictures of that dreamy landscape! Together with a group of like minded people we roamed around Bad Gastein, took photos, had breakfast at Haus Hirt, dinner at Regina Hotel, took the one-person aerial lift to reach the Bellevue Alm restaurant, rode horse sleigh, and visited the cutest hotel in the world Hansi Hansi. Those were my favourite moments from that weekend in the Alps.

During my return trip to Vienna I was thinking that Bad Gastein must be beautiful throughout the whole year. All green during spring and summer and all white during winter. I was also thinking of that room in the corner, where I spent one night, that had view of the snow covered mountains and the valley….that loft room in “Tessa”…♥

Suite 17 was the place I spent 2 days last weekend, a beautiful maisonette spread out over two floors connected by an indoor staircase at the Hotel G’Schlössl Murtal in Knittelfeld, Austria.

On Friday evening I took the train from Vienna to Knittelfeld, a small city in the Austrian countryside about 2 hours away by train from Vienna. It’s a place I have never been to before….When I visit a place for the first time, I usually do a lot of sightseeing but this time I decided to have a more relaxed program. So, on Saturday I devoted my time to photography and on Sunday to wellness&spa.

If you ever find yourself in that part of Austria, don’t miss the experience of having dinner at Hotel Steirerschlössl and visit the most magical Christmas market which is next to the Hotel G’Schlössl Murtal. ♥

The last weekend of October I found myself in Athens much earlier than expected thanks to #theathensworld team who invited me to celebrate the World Cities Day together with them and many other Instagrammers. Once I arrived at the Athens International Airport, the taxi driver brought me directly to Kolonaki where I had dinner with the whole group who had gathered there. The next day, on October 31st, began at The Museum of Cycladic Art and after that we walked around the city center and headed to Plaka where several street events and celebrations of all kinds were happening at different spots around the city center.

Here are a few travel tips, that were also included in our program, if you plan to visit Athens:

Niceneasy (Bio restaurant), Salon de Bricolage (Bar restaurant), City Bistro, Balux Cafe (Cafe Restaurant), the oh so fabulous ARK (Bar restaurant) where I had the best cocktail in my life called Shibuya Martini, and of course you want to go to Lukumades.

and here is a video with a small interview that I gave to MTV Greece.

The weekend in Athens was just awesome. The weather could have been a little bit warmer but nevertheless I had a great time, made new friends, and ate the best food. Sunday was a free day, so I had the chance to see friends and family again. The highlight of the whole trip, I have to confess, was the taxi driver who picked me up from the airport. He is the person you want to wait for you in the airport! He was very kind and had nice stories to tell and I have been told that he brought the other guests to the Lykabettus, once they landed in Athens, so that they can get a first impression of the capital from above.♥
