Travel not to escape life But for life not to escape you
The world is like a book And those who do not travel read only one page
It is better to see it once Than hear about it a thousand times

Didn't have the opportunity to blog yesterday. Had a full day around Vienna again. Buuut, the morning started with our visit at the UN Center here. We had a round trip with the student group around the building followed by a lecture given by the UNODC about the UN Convention Against Corruption. After the three hour long visit I got back to the hotel and then we headed out for a walk around town and some shopping.

Now we are soon going for breakfast before having to take the train back to Budapest. From there we'll go to the airport and back to Sweden. It has been three really long days, and we managed to do a lot. Will be nice now to get home and relax haha. And get back to gym, after all this junk food! Then school again tomorrow.. life goes on, until next vacation :)

Viennaaaa... so we are here! Took a three hour train ride. Went straight to the hotel to check in and leave our bags. The reason we are in the city is because of the study trip I have, remember? Tomorrow I am meeting the rest of the group from Uni to get a tour and lecture at the UN centre in Vienna. So I chose a near by hotel to stay at, NH Danube right next to the international centre. We decided to walk from here to the city centre and have a look around this afternoon. It was quite a long walk, but sooo worth it. You will never guess what we saw on the way... A marijuana plant shop! Yes, you read that right! They had this weird bongo music playing and had hasch pipes, weed chocolate, cakes and everything you can imagine. But the weirdest part was that they are growing and selling plants, all kinds of marijuana plants. I didn't even know there were that many sorts! Craziest place. But rest of the city was okey too HAHA. Not that exciting though as our first discovery. We kind of just walked around randomly, ending up at the same places a couple of times. Had lunch at Vapiano and dessert at a famous cafeteria. Nutella crepes mmmm.

Heads on, don't continue reading this post if you are hungry!

Thought I have some time now during the morning before bf wakes up to throw one last post about our short visit in Budapest. Soon I have to wake him up so that we can get ready to leave to Vienna. We are taking the train from here, and will stay in Austria for two nights.

Okey, so here are some pics about all the things we managed to eat yesterday haha. Yup, food deserves its own post:

This was lunch we had at TGI Fridays with bf and his sister and family. TGI is the favourite. I've written about it before, as we always visit the chain whenever we are in a city that has the Friday's goodies.

Had some snacks along the day. They don't have Dunkin Donuts here, but of course they have plenty of other chains to make up for that. Look at these popcorn donuts for instance haha. Whaaaat? And we got some creme brulé donut, one with oreos, one with double nutella and one cheesecake donut.

And of course, for dinner we had to go to TGI Fridays again haha.

Had just one day this time in the beautiful city of Budapest. So after having my hair done we went to TGI Fridays for lunch. Then we walked around the city a bit with boyfriend's sister and company. We walked towards the parliament.. which took quite some while. But it was the nicest weather and I just LOVE Budapest. Not saying that because I'm Hungarian, but it is really my favorit European city where I could imagine myself living in the future (with a Swedish salary of course hehe). Had quite a touristy day even though this feels like a second home to me. Now I'm chilling by the pool at the hotel meanwhile bf is at the gym right behind. Jacuzzi time soon, and then we'll go out for dinner, TGI FRIDAYS again :D

And here goes 'photo bomb' from today!

Arrived rather late in Budapest yesterday. We took a cab straight to the hotel and went to sleep. This morning I was woken up by the sun shining right into our hotel room. Such a nice weather her, really warm.. especially compared to the rainy disaster we left behind in Sweden yesterday. Our hotel room turned out to be a penthouse, in the middle of the city with a nice surrounding. Had my bf take some morning picture before we leave to get breakfast. The plan for today is first of all to dye my hair! Going lighter hopefully. And then we'll catch up with his sister and family for lunch who are also here but staying at another hotel. Looking forward to this day :D

Couldn't last long without gym in the end haha. But I knew that already. During the weekend I didn't have the time or energy anyways because of working 12 hours shifts. But today I felt that I had to get a workout, even though I'm not allowed to sweat because of the eyebrow tattoo thing. But I figured since we are traveling tomorrow (finaaaaaally OMG CAN'T WAAAAIT) I went today a last time with ma friend Pamikoooo. Had a chill leg day, going heavy but with low reps and enough rests so that I wouldn't get too warm. It worked out just fine. We started with some leg press where I pushed her to go from her usual 60kg to 100! MOHAHA, I did the double but still was too light for low reps. So we went heavy on squats too. Haven't done that for a while because of the high rep focus schedule we are doing this year. But that has given me enough strength to push 80kg squats, which is a first timer. So all in all, yes it is possible to work out without sweating haha.

I also handed in my last essay for this course this morning. Felt done enough, at least mentally now. And no better feeling than having no school. Free for a week! Perfect timing for the vacation. The plane is leaving quite late tomorrow so luckily I'll still have time to finish some girly 'have to do' stuff before heading out. I'm quite done with packing also. It's only four days so don't have to bring much. I'll try to update more during the trip. Seee you!

Now I'm gonna watch the last part of Shan the Man's show that just came up. He's a stand up comedian in Sweden that I love. If you know Swedish, youtube him :D

Met my beast at the gym too ❤

Sooo, today I had myself cut with a knife.. but I'll get back to that haha. Woke up at 6am this morning, just to get tired enough to fall asleep early tonight. Have to wake up at 6 the whole weekend for work. I had breakfast and watched some series while bf still slept. I might have fallen asleep again for a couple of minutes myself :( But at 8am I went to gym. Had to get a quick morning session because now I'm not allowed to workout for at least a week. The gym was totally empty. Just me and the cleaning lady, and a cleaning man...

Sooo, I did my eyebrows again (even though promising myself the last time to never EVER have such a stupid idea again). My sister had convinced me that with a method called microblading, instead of the regular makeup-tatto it doesn't hurt as much and the color will last a lot longer. Since we both have kind of resistant skin the last one faded quite quickly. Microblading is a different method though, basically they cut up the eyebrows with a sharp knife thing and fill it with color. Sounds painful, but it really wasn't. And the result so far is amazing. Looks like natural brow hair. We scheduled a follow up meeting in a month as well, and that's when the real deal is done the lady told me. So, far so good though.
Now I'm back home, and I decided to just rest for the rest of the day yaay.

Just one week left now until I finally go on vacation. I really need a get-away now. Haven't done much interesting things lately, just the same everyday with this essay and gym, and watching netflix. However, today I told bf to take a quick ride to the mall with me because I had some things to get. And also, we are thinking about getting a small camera to film during our travels, as we have a lot of them coming up now. We found one, but we'll se which one we decide on until next week. Have any suggestions for a good waterproof compact camera?

You know how much I love online shopping. So easy and convenient as I don't even have to leave the bed haha. But it's also a bad habbit. I get so bored with studying sometimes that read some random fashion blogs, get caught in their outfit posts, and end up ordering a bunch of stuff. Today I was thinking to do the opposite and inspire my own readers instead mohaha. This post I will dedicate to one of my fav brands, Calvin Klein and show you my wants right now, and for the summer :D

After some hours of binge watching Netflix (and writing essay) I went to gym with my gymbuddy Pamela. We had the weekly glutes day, and by the third exercise she said the funniest thing, inspiring me to write this post. She said that this exercise makes her see stars. Sadly, that is exactly what you see after doing back extensions until it all goes black haha. Hate this exercise, but it's one of the best I know. Takes on all of the backside of your body. Pamela even felt it in her neck HAHA.. (that's not where you should feel it though😂). Today I did 3x20reps with 20kg weight. This is what gives you that nice looking lower back, and a star vision ;)

Yup, hade to use filters for our close up face pics.. for the sake of saving your vision HAHA. Can't look picture ready after a thorough leg day.
