a new girl in vienna on tour

i can't believe its been 2 weeks since i last posted here. i went away with the intention of hopefully putting up a few posts but alas, it didn't happen. the past 2 weeks have been pretty hectic... so much has happened... but its also been a lot of fun!

the first part of my holiday was spent with friends in brighton (england), hanging out with my mum and celebrating my brother's birthday. i ate lots of food! (including two delicious thai meals) and enjoyed a spot of shopping. brighton is fantastic for shopping... i haven't quite discovered many shops in vienna yet that offer the sort of thing i like.
this is a street called kensington gardens located in the north laines
some graffiti on the side of a pub. as you can see, the policemen are by banksy

i then flew to cyprus with my boyfriend to attend the wedding (as bridesmaid!) of a close friend (that i have known since high school) and enjoy some sunshine and relaxation. the wedding was beautiful (and carrie-ann you looked stunning!) but cyprus was VERY hot and humid... and my friend somehow managed to get married on the hottest day in cyprus for 11 years!!!! 

i'm not much of a sunbather as i've mentioned before so i spent most of my week swimming and relaxing in the hotel pool. it was the coolest place to be!
a few pictures of the sunset and the harbour at night

on our last night in cyprus a large group of the wedding party went out for a lovely traditional greek cypriot meal. it was my birthday a few days later and so they surprised me by asking the waiter to bring over a cake! very sweet. and the cake was delicious!
we then ended the night with some cocktails! (love the sparklers!)


  1. yay for brighton! ohmigod, how did you survive the weather in cyprus! crazy hot. Can't wait to see the photos. how is it being back in vienna? x
