All good things must come to an end.. especially breaks.

Well kiddos my Easter break is coming to a close and I'm really discouraged because well.. it's over. And now I have to go back to school and interact with all sorts of people. Plus waking up at a set time sounds pretty disgusting.

Anyway let me hit you up with some knowledge about what I did this break! I really don't have many pictures; just a few adorable zoo ones and from a day at the amusement park that I wouldn't mind sharing. :)

I'm sure you are just dying with anticipation right now! haha.

It's just really interesting to me that all of the people here on exchange seem to be putting up the same types of pictures you know. They are standing in front of an impressive structure, eating something nifty, posing in front of a statue. I mean we are all doing the same thing so it is redundant to me. But you have family back home and our families are perhaps looking at these pictures thinking about how unique our experience is.. but it really isn't. Ha. Not to demean the experience! It really has some substance but it's more about the moments that you cannot convey through pictures. Perhaps how you felt in that moment or how you adore the people that you were with or how the food tasted! Seriously, I'm not being a party pooper. :)

 I went to ze Vienna Zoo (Tiergarten Schönbrunn). 

This absolutely killed me, so adorable! That little baby was just napping away. :)

Gorgeous. I love 'em. 

so sreepy

So many sleeping babies!

Entering the traditional Austrian farm area.

Schönbrunn Palace

Insanely terrifying being up all the way to the top but the view was absolutely stunning. 

There isn't too much to say except that I had a great time in Vienna and a great time while I was home in Klagenfurt. Seriously, the people you surround yourself with are what make the experience. 

So all of you peoples around the world should travel.

"The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of a mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one." - Wilhelm Stekel

I put that there because,
1. That quote is in Catcher in the Rye which I finished reading today for one of my classes.
2. Wilhelm Stekel is an Austrian physician/psychologist - which seems relevant because I'm living in Austria and am majoring in Psychology.



  1. 1. You are a party pooper indeed.
    2. I really want to go to the zoo. Really really bad.
    3. I like that you wore your horse shirt to the zoo. Well played.
    4. I love that quote too

  2. Let's go to a zoo somewhere really randomly. :)
