The city of dragons

Have you seen ‘The Hobbit’ or ‘Game of Thrones’? No?!? Where have u been living?!? Probably on earth… Well the most important part of them are the dragons!!!

Well at least in my opinion…

A lot of cultures had them even before they met and you wanna tell me they aren’t real?!? Well I’ve been to the city of Dragons! It’s in the middle of Europe. In Slovenia to be exact and they made it their capital!

Ljubljana is a very delicate and beautiful city! It has amazing architecture from this one guy who is like the Da Vinci of buildings, but don’t ask me cause I really have no idea about that kinda stuff! All I know is what the tourist lady said and what I saw (and that was frigging beautiful!!) So apparently the legend says that this mayor had a pretty huge problem in form of a dragon and promised his virgin daughter to whomever wants to kill that amazing creature. So some dude, who became saint later on, searched for an adventure and went up the hill to the hiding spot of the dragon and fought with him for a while until he pushed his spear down the animals throat into the heart (don’t really know if that’s possible) and killed him. Fortunately at that moment the earth opened and the dragon fell down a hole after that it closed again so no one saw the dead dragon. That saint guy didn’t wanna marry a virgin cause that might be boring so he went on and did some other amazing stuff and became saint of something.

 

That city got a few other dragon myth leading back into the roman era so that’s pretty awesome and they still have a fountain of that time standing in the castle… Now it’s being used for some cables so they got energy up their but who cares. I mean it’s just over 2000 years old and still intact!

In general what I noticed is, that in Ljubljana live a lot of young folks, so the club scene is huge! Along the river are a lot of bars and stuff and at night it looks so magical with all those lights! Aaaaaand they are fabulous at making gelato (fancy Italian name for ice cream) and cakes and coffee and just sweet things in general! They have this really cool food marked every Friday evening, where all the local restaurants have their own booth and you can taste food of all those different cultures in one place.

 

In a nutshell I LOVE IT!!!!! And I’ll definitely gonna come back with my gurls to party!

See you soon and share love

Ni hao China

I wrote a few pages of my trip to China and realised it was pretty boring so I decides to just show you guys a few pictures. I went there more than one year ago and it was the best time I had so far. My school organised the exchange, so I had the chance to visit a foreign country with my friends and just a few teachers. To everyone who ever gets a chance like that, take it and never let it go!

Things you might find normal are pretty extraordinary for me…

I’m a country girl…

We did way more things in the 2 weeks, but it was a ¬†year ago and I wasn’t a great photographer back then . (I’m still not)

Winter is coming…

d3b_3205I just realized it’s almost Christmas (in my opinion it starts, when I hear Last Christmas on the radio for the first time) and I looked trough pictures I took last year… Since I live near the Alps it snows a lot.

d3b_3261The thing I love about this time of the year is, that no matter what it’s always quiet and peaceful. The days get shorter and the hours of coffee, rewatching your favorite series and reading, get longer than ever. Creating snowmen and sometimes even igloos with your d3b_3244family and friends.

The greatest childhood memories I’ve got are full of snow and frozen feet. Skiing is one of my favorite sports and I haven’t even started about Christmas markets. Hours of looking trough useless but cute stuff and drinking hot punch… Who doesn’t love that?

And have I told you about those snow-shootings I love to do? You have the chance to dress up as Elsa or Little Red Riding Hood! Trowing snow in the air or making snow angles..dsc_0946.

Don’t you thing that Christmas is the best feast of the year? It’s a holiday to spend with your family. Sitting around a tree filled with candles and singing together…

Winter is the season of love…

Love to give and to get
