It was snowing outside but some other food lovers and I were keeping it warm as we were gathered at NENI Kochschule to indulge in the art of making good food with Mrs Haya. Although I wasn’t supposed to blog about food anymore because I am more and more into fashion and traveling, I thought I should make an exception (after all this blog is all about the things that I like and if I like it then I will pulbish it) and share my experience with all of you who love my Vienna tips, good food, and cooking lessons.
The cooking lesson lasted about five hours and I have to say, I wasn’t bored because Mrs Haya with her passion and temperament created such a cheerful atmosphere by telling us stories and showing us how to make the perfect bread, most delicious sweets, and mouth watering soup among many other delicious dishes, and time passed by without even noticing it. And I was really impressed by Mrs Haya’s good organization and professionalism. You know, it’s not easy to be a head of a team and guide 10 persons at the same time.
As you can tell from the photos, I tried to capture the beauty and the action and focused mostly on what we were doing and not on the people. There was a lot of movement, spontaneity and no natural light. A real photography challenge for me.
The whole experience was like a food party that took my memories back to Instabul and reminded me of my favourite film : A touch of Spice (don’t tell me you don’t know that movie). I have never experienced something like that in Vienna. Great music (even Greek music), great experience and above all…great food at Neni Kochschule.♥
I know it has been quite quiet here lately but after I came back from holidays to Vienna, one event was coming after another, and instead of sitting home and working in front of the computer the evenings, I was drinking champagne and Bellini in beautiful terraces in Vienna. Who wouldn’t, right?
Now that I write this, I am back to Vienna, reminiscing about the August moments when I was doing nothing but chasing the best sunset day after day and was smitten with every beach and every village on a Greek island.
Those are the last Samos photos on The Viennese Girl blog for this year…I remember very well those summer days when I took those photos, the heat, how much I was sweating and how hard I was trying to stay indoors in the night to work for The Viennese Girl blog. Those August moments are now nothing but after summer blues. And the worst is that I am afraid that those August memories will haunt me the following 10 months until summer gets back.♥
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…♥
Where do you like to have your morning coffee in the city, if not at home?
Not far away from where I live, there is a cafe called Kaffee von Sascha, which is run by an adorable couple from Ukraine. Kaffee von Sascha is not like the other cafes in Vienna. Sascha is passionate about making coffee for his guests while Nina makes the T-shirts that you will see hanging on the wall and they are both proud and happy to run a concept store that combines coffee&fashion. Although I went there alone, I felt very welcomed and comfortable while chatting with both of them in a warm summer day, and for that reason, I took some pictures to share with you on The Viennese Girl blog.
I left the Kaffee von Sascha with a T-shirt that portrays a cute dog and really can’t wait to wear it in my summer holidays in Greece. Don’t forget to visit them if you are in Vienna. I personally loved the table next to window and not only their coffee, but also their strawberry smoothie and all the other delicacies they treated me.♥
These are just some quick shots I managed to snap this Friday morning in Vienna. It has been a bit quiet on The Viennese Girl blog lately, but July is a month of exams for students, and consequently, like many other Uni Wien students, I have no other choice than spending hours in front of a book.
But, this Friday morning in Vienna, I took some time off and did some shopping (memory card for my photo camera), went to Cafe Feral for orange juice, strolled around the 6th, 5th and 4th districts and dreamt a lot about my coming summer holidays before I get back to my book at home. For the summer holidays, I have to wait until August but July also seems to be exciting and very promising. Something big and unbelievable will happen that makes me jump up and down, scream and cry tears of happiness. Stay tuned!
May gives me many ups and downs but I shouldn’t complain, especially when I think that 3 magazines in Austria mentioned The Viennese Girl blog and I am glad that Trendsylvania is one of those. A style catalogue and fashion design magazine that you can find free of charge at the Humanic Stores in Vienna.
We teamed up with Trendsylvania and offer you a survival kit made up of summer clothing essentials. A little photo of me and a description of my blog are also included in the article. If you go to a Humanic store, look for the Trendsylvania magazine and me! I hope you are going to like it and that you are going to find your own summer essentials. Ahhh, I am looking forward to relaxing summer days and nights somewhere in the Aegean, in one of the Greek islands of course…♥
