today’s blogpost will be a bit different from what I usually post. I was thinking of giving my blog a bit more of a personal touch in addition to my travel section. That is why I am going to give you a review about my summer and also tell you what I am up to now.
First things first: I really had a great summer with a perfect work-life-balance. Meaning: the right amount of flying, writing and vacation, even though the latter one could always be a bit more. 😉 Where have I been to the past six weeks? Honestly, I’ve been hopping around so much that I really had to take my agenda to see where I’ve been to.
I went to Geneva the beginning of July. It’s been a while since my last trip to Geneva, so I enjoyed it even more. Geneva is especially beautiful during summer and it feels more and more like home to me.
A few days later I hopped on a plane heading to the Dominican Republic and discovered paradise on Catalina Island. Read the blogpost here in case you have missed it.
Coming back I had exactly one night in Vienna before heading to Salzburg for a weekend full of reunions, birthday celebrations and friends.
From there I went to Zurich and flew to San Francisco with some friends the next day. We rented a car and explored Yosemité National Park and relaxed at Lake Tahoe.
Back in Zurich I had one night to recover from my trip before starting to work. I’ve had layovers in Berlin, Tel Aviv, London and Barcelona. I spent my off-days mostly relaxing in Geneva, but also in London, Annecy and Charmonix.
As every year I ended my summer with the Recurrent Ground Training in Zurich. This annual training is mandatory for a cabin and flight crew members in order to maintain their license. Passing the test at the end allows me to continue flying for another year.
Coming back to Austria I had a few days to get things organized for my next chapter. Meaning, saying goodbye to my beloved ones and packing again.
This summer might sound like a bit of stress. I have to admit, that packing my bags every other day can get annoying at times. But as I spent my off-days without huge responsibilities, I enjoyed the rush. And now I am already looking forward for my next chapter. And that means a country I’ve never been to before.
A New Chapter
I’m writing this blogpost while I’m en-route to C o p e n h a g e n, as Denmark will be my home for the next four months. What brings me to Denkmark? It’s my studies. Some of you know already that I started going to university and do my bachelor degree. In the course of my studies I will do a semester abroad in Roskilde, a city not far away from the danish capital. I am excited, anxious and curious at the same about this new experience (hello dorm-life!) and also interested how I will like it staying in one country for a longer period of time. Lot’s of new things for me. 🙂
As I mentioned before, I’ve never been to Denmark before and did not really do a lot of research until today. (I know, I am a such a last-minute-person. But why planning everything well ahead of time if I have four months to discover the country?)
So if some of you have already been to Copenhagen before and have some must-sees or insider-tips for me, please let me know. What is your favorite district? What is not to be missed? I have no clue yet besides from a few main attractions. Also if you know any vegan restaurants or shops, hand them over to me. As I am super comfortable and “strict“ with vegan nutrition by now, I would like to work on my make-up and skincare next.
Here is a “best-of” summer 2016. I already apologize for the terrible quality of the pictures. But life is about moments anyway.. <3
Keep you updated about how everything is going. And stay tuned for some articles about Denmark.
