things that make me happy

by ada

Well, it’s more like things that made me happy at one point of my life during this not-very-well-documented summer, haha. (Actually, it was very well documented but rather poorly shared.) (Btw, I’m rapidly catching up on summer posts, thanks to the awful schleimy October weather and some unidentified but deadly efficient pathogen that ate my respiratory system and my brain and put me in bed for two weeks).

Anyway. Here come some of my summer joys that I want to keep a record of, like…

…orange flowers:

…and orange cats:

Summer shadows…

…and birds on furniture:

Valtice castle 27

Free books…

freie Bücher

…especially this one I was gifted by the nice reception lady at the Heimatmuseum in Schruns:

Wearing the necklace my mother got from her grandparents for her high school graduation:

Meeting Super Mario in the public toilet of the GWL in Bregenz…

…and discovering a proper dwarf colony in my neighbourhood:

That my patients seem to like me…

Liebe Schwester

…and that my coworkers in Bregenz turned out to be awesome (after spending the previous six months in a classic You Can’t Sit With Us situation in Wien, this was without doubt the greatest gift of the summer):

Stones I collected at various beaches around the Bodensee:

Crossing borders…

…and bringing home small reminders of a country I’ve never been to before:

That I got to spend my summer in Bregenz, where my days looked like this…

Salem 6

…and my nights like this:

That I got to travel a lot…

ferryboat Romanshorn and Friedrichshafen

…and that, on some of my adventures, I even got to have a travel companion:

Signs of refugee support around Austria and Germany…

Migration is not a crime Hohenems

…and support for those who actually do the job of fighting the cause of the refugee problem. Go Kurds!
