August recap

by ada

The results of the US election gave me a huge motivation for blogging, because looking back at my sunny summer adventures in 2015 is much more comforting than looking forward to a future in which Donald Trump rules the world; which perspective is, let’s be real, more than terrifying.

Since I can’t change anything (I wish I could), I am now feverishly preparing for WW3 and transforming our cellar into a nuclear shelter do what I can to blend out real life problems and live in the past, so here you are, August 2015.

I started the month with German fireworks in Langenargen:

untitled-466

It was raining light!

untitled-151

It was also a fine opportunity to take out of focus photos of the festively decorated ships…

uferfest-langenargen-2015-53

…and of an unusually empty Lindau at night:

lindau-at-night-3

A few days later I spent 11 hours on a train…

untitled-6h

… to get home in time for my mother’s birthday:

untitled-69

She received some handmade presents from Milo and Móricka:

untitled-60j

In the process of creating it Milo got caught red handed. He looks quite embarrassed:

untitled-179

Móricka was rather pleased with the results:

untitled-6-2

Everybody coped with the heat in his own way: Milo took possession of the electric fan…

untitled-39

…Móricka wore his tribal colours with pride…

untitled-112

…The Cat buried herself in the closet (don’t ask)…

pottom

…my sister put up the grill…

untitled-120

…and I tackled some long overdue personal projects:

untitled-8j

szekreny

When the time came, I crossed Austria again…

untitled-22m

…and got back to Bregenz:

untitled-5n

I spent a lot of time on the road…

_dsc8253

…making decisions…

untitled-52-2

…and getting my feet…

ground-2

…and my bike dirty…

untitled-23b

…on forest paths…

_dsc7768

…and in water:

untitled-24-4

I met all kinds of animals…

untitled-138

untitled-17-2

wangen-11

…but mainly pigs:

vorkloster-17

untitled-115-2

I took the Muttersbergbahn…

untitled-110-2

…to look over the mountains around Bludenz:

untitled-84m

I swam in the Bodensee…

bodensee-1

…and in the Dornbirner Ach:

untitled-56n

One time I even went to night swimming (the giant groups of bats and mosquitos swarming over me are not pictured but they were REAL):

untitled-6

I visited new cities…

untitled-27-2

…and revisited old favourites:

lindau-4

I also crossed borders, because that’s what I like to do:

staatsgrenze-3

I listened to music during the day…

untitled-54n

and at night:

turandot-2

I saw (but wasn’t allowed to play) the organ Hans Buchner has once practised on (more than 500 years ago):

_dsc8802

I met really old Chinese ladies…

terracotta-armee-dornbirn-308

…Bavarian witches…

untitled-82-2

…and whole families in splendid Vorarlberger tracht:

untitled-119-3

And, tired but happy, I ended the month just the same way as I started it: with fireworks. This time in Bregenz:

things that make me happy

by ada

Just to keep record of some of the things that otherwise would be forgotten would I hold onto chronology too strictly; things that made my life better even if only for one short moment.

One of those things was eating cherries…

cherries 3

…especially twin cherries:

twin cherries 1

My bike, Priscilla. I bought her from a Portuguese girl who has since moved back home; and decided to keep the name she gave it (I am the queen of second third fourth tenth hand bikes):

Priscilla 1

That my bike has “happy” written on it…

happy 2

…and that she is not the only happy bike out there:

choose to be happy 1

Things I find in my bed after Milo naps in it (a half meter long plastic toy tram, a ladle, and the naked leg of a Barbie doll, just to name a few):

lego figures 1

My new pink Adidas ballerinas (the only piece of pink clothing I’ve ever owned, I’m fairly sure). I got them at the mall called Mercury Centrum in České Budějovice:

pink shoes 1

This mosaic. It reminds me of Wien:

mosaic Linz 1

Cats on walls…

Bad Isch cats 1

…on doormats…

doormat cat 2

…and in my work email:

email cats

Deer on my new hoodie:

deers

The new Mma Ramotswe book:

the woman who walked in sunshine 7

All the three and a half days of summer we’ve got this year (so far)…

Linz summer 11

…which I used for going on bike rides…

summer 1

…and taking cable cars:

Grünberg 3

This cheese I found at Merkur. It is so good (and it reminds me of last summer):

Bregenzerwaelder Camembert 4

That, after 5 months on raw food (and junk food), I can now finally cook again:

my kitchen 7

That my room smells like elderflower:

elderflower tea 1

Móricka’s new manifesto: When I grow up, I will be Ada and I will take the train to places very very far and I will buy all the presents. (I feel like I’m turning into the American Auntie Rich Relative From The Other Side Of The Iron Curtain, a phenomenon I so badly envied from the neighbourhood kids while growing up in Socialist Hungary):

Simi

Those 30.863 voters who turned over the elections (Obviously, I am not allowed to vote in Austria. But I still have my opinions about my pampered, twenty-years old coworkers with their houses and swimming pools, who all voted right radical because of “young blood” and “dahoam”):

Van Der Bellen 1

That I’m moving out of this house (the neighbours! Give me a lonesome island!)…

lift

…because I’m finally, finally leaving Linz. Not a day too early. My time here had so much in common with my last few Dutch months. The city that I failed to click with. The social isolation. The terrible weather (it was snowing yesterday! On the 18th of June!). The frustrating living conditions (the neighbours! Did I mention my neighbours!). The feeling that I’m stuck and that it’s not my fault. The general unhappiness this unfortunate combination brought on me. Truly, it were some miserable eight months. But it’s almost over now!

April recap

by ada

April found me in Hungary, where I visited the ruins of the Schossberger castle in Tura,

Untitled 171 (2)

celebrated my father’s birthday,

Untitled 82

hunted some Easter Eggs with Milo and Móricka,

Untitled 181

and took photos of every blossoming tree that came my way.

Untitled 51

After Easter I travelled back to Vienna to work my socks off enjoy spring weather,

Vienna spring

play tourist,

Ankeruhr

and continue discovering my neighbourhood.

Untitled 34

I spent an afternoon in Mödling,

Untitled 90

where I walked in weird woods,

Untitled 26o

picked flowers,

Untitled 50

and met a post-Easter bunny.

Untitled 36 (2)

I visited the House of Music,

HDM VIENNA

and went to the Vienna Air King contest to see some flying bikes (of which occasion some photos are yet to be shared) (if only I could find the time).

Untitled 65d

The rest of the month was not the least blogworthy. I worked/slept it through without taking a single photo after the 11th of April. All the glamour of my life, haha.
