Life Update #2 & April Style Inspiration

Today I want to update you on some exciting things & I want to show you some of my favourite Pinterest style inspirations for spring! Let’s start with the life updates:

Moving to Hamburg

Yes, you read that correctly! I will move to Hamburg for a few months in the second half of this year. I will do an internship in an advertising agency and I am beyond excited to go there and explore the city. I fell in love with Hamburg when I was there the past summer, so I’ve applied to some agencies there, and luckily one of them wants me as an intern! 🙂 Let’s see what this experience will hold for me

Bella Roma, here we come!

Last week, my friend Anna and I spontaneously booked a flight to Rome this June. I love Italy so so much, and I already missed it a lot which is why I was really happy when she showed me the Urlaubsguru offer she found.. We just had to book straight away! I’ve been to Rome twice already, but I will take every chance I get to go back.

Every time I fall in love with a place, I leave part of my heart there. Maybe that’s why I tend to always come back there after some time.

Getting back on track

I have finally (!!) started to work out regularly again – and it has never been so much fun. Working out is the perfect „Me-Time“ for me, it gets my stress and frustrations out and has such a positive and meditating effect for my mind. Especially now that the weather gets warmer each day, I really enjoy being active.

Summer Day in Hamburg

PicsArt_08-17-12.01.55

Todays post is dedicated to one of my favourite outfits this past summer. Since I love wearing black dresses, I fell in love with this one – especially because it’s also fit for summer. I paired it with a light bomber jacket which was perfect for a summer day in Hamburg, as it can still get pretty windy there. The bag has golden details which matched the jewellery on my hands. For shoes, I chose sneakers – simple but great for city trips since you’ll probably walk around a lot.

You can find the details here:

Jacket: Pimkie (similar one)

Dress: Asos

Bag: Vero Moda (similar)

Shoes: Converse

Jewellery: New One

Berlin + Hamburg

A lesson that I have learned on my trip to Germany: Nothing happens as you expect it to & so much can go wrong when you are traveling!

The trip started out perfectly fine. My friend Melanie & I planned to visit our friend Destina in Berlin and spend a day in Hamburg before flying back home. We flew from Bratislava to Berlin-Schönefeld (the airline Ryanair offers flights from Bratislava which are much cheaper than the flights from Vienna). Destina picked us up there and we stayed at the place she rents.

Berlin

On the first evening, we mostly talked to catch up and cooked us some food (we also went grocery shopping which was quite fun – don’t know why but I just love buying groceries and food haha).

On the second day, we spent the whole day strolling around the city. First, we went to  Brandenburg Gate where we sat down in the middle of the street and drank lemonade. It was so much fun – the city and the people there have such a youthful and laid-back vibe. I absolutely loved the atmosphere! Afterwards, we went to the Berlin Cathedral, the Lustgarten, the Mall of Berlin (honestly, the most beautiful mall I’ve ever been to) and Alexanderplatz, which is located right next to the TV tower.

Things to do: Visit Café Einstein – they make delicious coffee (also with soy milk!). Also, visit the Rittersport shop! You can make your own Rittersport chocolate there!! You can choose the chocolate flavour and up to three fillings. I made myself a dark chocolate bar with strawberry and raspberry flakes and caramelized almonds – it was so delicious!

Hamburg

On the third day, we packed our bags and hit the road to Hamburg. The day before, we booked ourselves tickets for the Flixbus and spontaneously found a nice hotel to stay in. The drive was about  3 1/2 hours long. In Hamburg, we stayed at the Pension am Rathaus which is located in the centre of the city. It’s also close to the central bus station where our bus arrived.

We went shopping at the Mönckeberg street (visit the shop Reserved, I just loved the clothes they have there!). Subsequently, we took a long walk by the harbour and the Elbphilharmonie. Everything was so close to our hotel, we didn’t have to use public transport!

What else to do: Go eat at bona’me! The flair of the restaurant is amazing and the food looked really good. Sadly, we didn’t eat there because we were’nt hungry when we found the restaurant, but I can really recommend the lime blossom tea and the Rhubarb Sherbet – they were delicious.

Hamburg was so lovely. I felt so at peace there.. The city, the atmosphere, the people, the buildings, the harbour – I loved everything and I just need to go back someday!

Missed flight & 14-hour train ride

Let’s get to the part now, where everything went wrong haha.. Everything was fine at the beginning, Melanie and I found a great place to stay in Hamburg, we had no problems with the flight, we had so much fun, etc. … We even started to get suspicious – if you would know Melanie or me you’d know that both of us are extremely chaotic people! hahaha .. So we started to think that something just had to go wrong – and well it did.

On our last day, we took the Flixbus from Hamburg to Berlin where our flight would departure. We even booked the early bus just in case something would go wrong & we would still get to the airport on time. Well.. turns out there was a big traffic jam and we got stuck. We would be 2 h late but there was still a slight chance that we would catch our flight. However, then the bus driver announced that we needed to stop at a stopping place, for 45 minutes. We didn’t have wifi, the bus driver didn’t help us when ewe tried to talk to him, we didn’t knew where we were..

Nobody could help us and we had to decide fast what we would do.

In the end, the overall best option was to buy train tickets back home. The worst thing was that the train tickets were quite expensive and Flixbus wouldn’t give us back the money for the bus ride (the bus arrived nearly 4 hours late, so I guess that was the least they could have done..). In addition, it would take us 14 hours more to get home, which was exhausting. Melanie had to go to work the next day either.

When you travel, you really can’t plan something 100%. Everything is possible and so so much can go wrong. The most important thing is to keep cool and laugh about it – after all it could have been waaay worse haha

Furthermore, you never know who you could meet in situations like this. Melanie and I met so many interesting people.. a woman who told me exactly what I needed to hear and an old man who had many fascinatig stories to tell. That made the train ride really worth it in the end.

I believe that everything that happens at some point in our life has a reason. Everything is a lesson to teach you something.

I will never forget this trip. It was everything from relaxing to exciting to adventurous and I had so much fun. I enjoyed the vibes Berlin gave me and fell in love with Hamburg. But I will probably go more into that in my next post.

Did you ever miss a flight or had a travel situation like this? If so, what did you do and how did you feel in that moment? I would love to here your stories.

Much love, Christine
