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. ♥

Photography: Tony Gigov

Last Monday I was photographed by Tony Gigov at Rathaus Christmas Market Vienna. We took some time out of our busy lives to catch up over coffee at Landtman Cafe and shoot some photos at the most famous Christmas Market in Vienna, the Rathaus Wiener Christkindlmarkt. I am not used to seeing a blog post with so many photos of me but I like it and I felt like I have to take some pictures in front of the Rathaus, as many of you have requested in your emails.

The weather was sunny, the atmosphere was christmassy, the Market wasn’t crowded because it was Monday morning, and I had a nice time with Tony who was making me laugh all the time. ♥

Before I got to Miami, I did a research on Google for Miami travel tips of bloggers who reside in the city and I hardly found something. So, here are a few travel tips, based on my experiences in the city, for those who are going to visit Miami:

1. The most romantic place I visited in Miami was Vizcaya museum and gardens. I can imagine hundreds of photo shootings taking place here.

2. Go to Le Sandwicherie for fresh yummy huge sandwiches. I loved it and went twice.

3. Explore Miami Beach on two wheels. There are city bikes to rent and many hotels give them to their guests for free. Miami beach is a bike friendly area with not much traffic, unless you go to the avenues which are more crowded, and many bike lanes. Moreover, it’s hard to see everything on foot, so the smartest way to explore Miami Beach is by bicycle.

4. In Miami Beach don’t visit only the touristic parts like Ocean Drive and Lincoln road. Go and check the side streets.

5. One of my favorite parts of South Beach Miami was hands down Española Way. If you go there, you will understand why!

6. When it comes to art, go to The Wynwood Walls and PAMM Museum.

7. Apart from Miami Beach, check out those neighborhoods: Downtown Miami, Brickell city centre, Coral Gables, Little Havana art district, Coconut Grove.

8. What I dreamt of is having a helicopter tour above the city but it wasn’t possible…next time.

9. I loved the italian dinner at Cibo.

10. Check out Everglades National Park.


Note: the photos above were taken at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens and at The Setai Hotel.

The Viennese Girl Blog

I spend a lot of time reflecting on The Viennese Girl project. Not because I am unsure about it. But out of desire to provide readers interesting content. I wouldn’t dare to say high quality content because I am afraid I am still far away from it, but I am working to that direction.

It just takes time. Like all the good things in life. Nothing happens overnight. It’s a long process. Maybe it is the fact that it starts gaining visibility. The more visibility it gains, the more it scares me and motivates me at the same time to become better and better. I wouldn’t be happy if somebody visits the website and says, “it was a waste of time,”. On the other side, I have a friend who keeps telling me: you are too beautiful to be sad.

Although this blog started for fun, I should admit that I take it seriously. I thought a lot about it and I made up my mind. Good collaboration enquiries are more than welcome. Collaboration inquiries that are a good fit will be rejected. Sometimes we have to know to say No, right? Especially when something doesn’t fit or doesn’t add any value.

Despite the fact that I am neither a photographer, nor a journalist, nor do I have any idea on advertising and marketing, I use my brain, heart and instict, and I believe in that saying: practice makes the master. If you want something badly, you can achieve it.

1 year old 

Soon the Viennese girl blog will celebrate its birthday. The first year of existence was something like an experimental year; so far I didn’t get any bad feedback and still I feel so excited having that little corner on the web where I can express myself through writing and photography.

Help from friends

I suppose that you all know that if we are alone in the world we cannot achieve anything. Of course there were persons who helped me and still help making this project reality. It’s such a nice feeling to have people that support you and believe in what you do, even if they are on the other parts of this earth!! They know who they are.

The blogging experience

The blogging experience

I started blogging seven months ago and I thought I should write some words about the blogging experience and share my thoughts with whoever might be concerned. Thoughts come out from my experiences. Blogging was and still is a very new world for me, such a big world and so many new things to learn, from technical things such as hosting companies, plug-ins, and SEO, to marketing and promotion. Overall, the blogging experience is fun but it can also be very tricky as well.

Copyright is something that everybody should take seriously. But many people don’t know that. And to be honest, some months ago, I also didn’t know that. When you hear of copyright, you might think: what’s the problem if I take a picture from another website? It is not that simple. Taking pictures that belong to others or copying text that someone else has written might get you into a problem and actions can be taken. I am not trying to warn you or to threaten you, don’t get me wrong. I am just trying to tell you to be careful with this stuff. I also visited once a lawyer who gave some very useful advices on what to do and what I shouldn’t do and also talked with photographers about copyright. For that reason, on my blog, which is like a photo journal, I use photos that were taken by me, or photos that other persons gives me with their written permission. I never use others’ photos without their permission.

To create a blog you need money and technical knowledge at the beginning. To keep up the blog and make it grow and grow you need a lot of time and creativity, and a big imagination in order to write entries that people would take the time to read and photos that people would fancy to look. Blogging is a job. It is like any other job that requires your effort and time. So, I find it reasonable that bloggers add advertisement to their blogs to make some money out of this.

The usual topics that bloggers write about are fashion, food, and travel. And I find that reasonable too. Would you imagine a girl writing about politics or football? I mean, if you feel like writing about football, you can do so. Nobody will forbid you from doing so, unless you do something that hurts or insult others. The topics of my blog are the same with so many other bloggers. By blogging the same topics we all run one risk. The risk of doing something that at the end might become boring and of no interest. The best we can do is, not to change topics of course, but to try to do it on our way, personal and unique.

The virtual world of The Viennese Girl has nothing to do with Silia’s world, my real world. This website gives me the chance to create a brand new world. A world that is more exciting, more charming and more interesting than my real world. A world without airplanes that are crashed on the air above the Ukrainian air zone, a world without wars and battles, a world without hunger and poverty. It’s all about creativity and imagination and whoever follows this blog shouldn’t confuse these two different worlds.♥

I have some plans that excite me for the future and the online world of the Viennese girl. But it takes time to realize them because simultaneously I have to carry out several other things in my private real life that need my time as well.

The conclusion is: You should never stop doing what you love and makes you happy, no matter what.
