Things to do in Vienna: Create your own artwork!

Today I met Stefanie from Art-o. She emailed me a few days ago and invited me to her new art studio. Funny thing is that I have had this idea of painting on a canvas for a long time lately. And it happened. Your thoughts create your life, they say…

So today was the day I went to Stefanie’s art studio in Vienna’s 7th district. At the beginning, Stefanie explained to me a few techniques, gave me lots of tips and tricks, and then I chose the colours.

Beige, pink, gold and a little bit of black

The main colours I used were beige, pink, and gold. We also splashed a little bit of black at the end. It was the first time I painted on a canvas. I didn’t have an idea what I was doing. But I had a precise vision regarding the colours I wanted to use. I wouldn’t like to hang on my wall a painting with colours that doesn’t reflect my style and do not complement the interior of my little apartment. I also wanted harmony and I love minimalism, so I would’t go for harsh extra saturated colours. Beige, pink, gold and black were just perfect for me.

You can also book a painting workshop with Stefanie. Feel free to text her or call her. I promise you, it’s going to be an amazing experience. My artwork is now at Stefanie’s art studio. Stefanie will varnish it and frame it, and I will go pick it up in about 2 weeks, when it’s going to be ready. Can’t wait!things to do in Vienna

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 and share my experience with all of you who love my Vienna tips, good food, and cooking lessons. After all, The Viennese Girl blog is all about the things that I like.

The cooking lesson lasted about five hours. I have to say, I wasn’t bored at all 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.

Time passed by without even noticing it. 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. I focused on the action and less 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.

University of Vienna

University of Vienna

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.

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 Vienna 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…

Since last week The Viennese Girl blog has one more creative gadget: a tripod. I took my tripod to the 9th district of Vienna, in Alsergrund, and to be more specific to Palais Liechtenstein and to Strudlhofstiege which is a very charming outdoor staircase next to Palais Liechtestein. As I was trying to find out how my new photography gadget works, something really funny happened. A little girl showed up in front of my camera and all of a sudden started posing for me. She didn’t say anything, she only started making funny poses. Obviously she wanted me to take some pictures of her and then she asked me to show them to her. It was very funny. I still laugh when I think of her.

I love the spontaneity of children, how much they can enjoy little things in life (like a camera and a tripod), how much happiness they can bring to our lives and I simply wish for more moments like this with my camera and my new photography gadget. ♥

kaffee WIEN

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 welcomed and comfortable. While I was chatting with both of them, I took these 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.
