exploring my new neighborhood, part one

i am now living together with my boyfriend for around two months, and i must say i really like it :) the new flat is super-awesome and cozy, i just had to get used to not living in the city center anymore.
i wanted to explore my new neighborhood much earlier but couldn’t find the time to do it. the first part of my neighborhood-series shows the ‘westbahnhof’, one of vienna’s rail stations. i discovered this bridge a while ago and i loved it. i hope you do, too :)

schönbrunn palace

schönbrunn palace is one of the most famous sights in austria, and just around the corner from my new flat :) especially the garden around the palace is very beautiful in spring and fall.
i was there last week with a dear friend of mine, unfortunately we weren’t lucky with the weather. but i am hoping for some more sunny days to take  my camera out for a walk.

have a great weekend everyone!!

spain: ronda

first of all i have to say i liked all the paces we visited in andalusia… but ronda was kind of special. we spent our night at the most lovely hostel in the city and from its terrace we also had an amazing view at the bridge.
one day i will come back  for sure :)

spain: sevilla

i hope you’re not annoyed by my spain-posts already, there are  3 or 4 more to come. i know, i always take too many pictures, but i still HAVE to show you the pictures of ronda and cádiz :)

sevilla was our next stop, there we enjoyed amazing food (again), a feisty flamenco show, the “casa de pilatos” and the narrow streets of the city.

moorish spain: la mezquita de córdoba

again i am sorry for not posting for such a long time but i was on holiday in carinthia with my boyfriend last week, then had my first little exhibiton at my sister’s birthday party and shot my first wedding on saturday. so a lot is going on right now, but i’m not complaining ;)

today i wanna show you some more pictures i took in córdoba. the mezquita was originally built as a mosque and was then turned into a cathedral. the architecture is amazing, i loved the mix between moorish and christian culture.

moorish spain: in love with the alhambra de granada

as mentioned in one of my previous posts, granada was our next stop on the andalusia-trip. there we visited an austrian a friend who was studying in granada for one year. he was a great tour guide and also managed to find a place for us to stay at another friend’s home. we had a really good time full of laughter and sangria ;)

we also visited the ‘alhambra de granada’ together, which is a wonderful and impressive palace and fortress, built in 889. i especially enjoyed the nasrid palaces and the beautiful gardens. for me, the alhambra was a  highlight during our journey and if you ever come to granada, take some time and visit the alhambra, you will not regret it!

from the alhambra, we also enjoyed a great view over the city
