Vienna Photodiary

Vienna was one of the cities on top of our must-visit list! Therefore, it was more than great to be able to spend a long weekend in this beautiful city. 

If I should describe Vienna in three words, those would be classic, sophisticated and unhurried. This city definitely knows exactly where it stands thus exudes a confidence known from cosmopolitan cities at its best. Nevertheless, Vienna managed to keep its ancient charm and makes you feel a whiff of of the former imperial empire. 

I was fascinated most by the sheer density of monumental buildings and the spacious architecture. At the same time there is nothing better than sitting in one of the numerous petite cafés and have the bespoke "Apfelstrudel" with vanilla ice cream and a tasty Hausbrandt coffee.

Happy Easter!

The 1975 - Chocolate

Easter is here, once again (these festive days always come so fast). As many of you know, we loooove to put together some mood boards and inspiration posts. Somehow it wasn't easy to find so many cute Easter pictures.

Nevertheless we tried to give you an impression of how we think of these days. Bright colours, 
a delicious brunch and some fashionable Easter eggs.

What's your Easter weekend like?

Coffee in Berlin: Le Johann Rose

A sunny day in town and a short trip to Kreuzberg, thats how Sundays always should look like. A dance performance of a friend brought me into that direction. On my way to the venue I came across this little café called La Johann Rose and decided to have a quick coffee stop there.

The inside is charmingly decorated, kitsch and vintage pieces are the main things you will find along with some patterned wallpapers and fresh flowers on the table. A Latté Macchiato costs € 2,80 (To Go € 2,00) and is served in a full glas with delicious foam. Along with that I enjoyed a banana nut bread slice, which was so fluffy and costs € 2,00. If you are looking for other sweat treats you can choose between some other freshly made cakes, brownies (one € 2,00), ice-cream and vegan spelt waffles (starting at € 3,60).
If you are looking for lunch, you will also be able to find something here. They serve soups and other little dishes. Afterwards just stroll through the streets and enjoy the area.

New York Photo Diary

Norah Jones - Come Away with Me 

Ever since I watched Maid in Manhattan (girls movie), "Come Away with Me" by Norah Jones has become my personal song for New York. Sounds crazy, since I have never been there before.
Of course I always dreamed of going there… someday and well planed ahead. But when 
my dance teacher invited my to join her on a visit to the Big Apple I was head over heels right away.

Yes, the city is a little crazy but it is definitely worth a visit. Though I have to say I wouldn't want to live there on a regular basis. It's fun to come there, see all those amazing places and get a bit carried  away by the SATC feeling. In the seven days I have seen so many different places and somehow discovered myself a bit more. Traveling so far is always a challenge since I love home. During my childhood my family and I moved quite a lot, which is why Potsdam and Berlin have become a home to me finally. But back to New York, the city many people dream of. It's superbe but after all I love 
London a bit more. I always thought New York maybe is the city that kicks London away from the first place on my favorite-city-list but this isn't the case.

If you plan on visiting New York, make sure to plan what you want to see. Make a list with some must-visit points so you get a rough grid. The first time in a new city is always nerve raking so make sure you can still enjoy your stay. The pictures in this photo diary show you some of my impressions of the city. In between my dance classes I tried to squeeze in a lot of sight-seeing. In the evening my feet were literally dead, followed by aching muscles on the next day. However the trip to New York showed me so many new things and I really learned a lot, also about myself.
