Almost one Week

On the 6th of June I went onto the plane and in the early morning of the 7th I arrived in Vienna! It was a 26h flight and I was glad it was over when my sister, her husband and little daughter picked me up from the airport! I was lucky, the day I arrived was a public holiday so when I got home we had a big feast and chatted for hours. The weather was the biggest difference from Australia - it was about 30 degrees and boiling hot. In the afternoon we went for a walk with my little niece and I got sunburnt - not only a little bit - my back felt like it was on fire!

Since that day I was meeting up with lots of my friends, went for walks every day and enjoyed just being at home! One week is over tomorrow and I have two more here in my home-country. I will make the best out of it and try to meet up with as much people as possible! Here are two landscape pics from my stay so far!

My birthday

Wednesday was my birthday. It was a great day and I wouldn't want to change a thing.When I woke up I saw a bunch of flowers on the table, of course from my lovely boyfriend. He also had an envelope prepared for me, I chose not to open it until he was home from work... It was the last day of uni too, so after class we went for a drink on campus. I was lucky, it was sunny and didn't rain! After that I waited for Ben to come home so I could finally open up his gift. And of course that day he had to work late! Oh well, I survived and was happy find a getaway to the 5 star Sheraton in their luxury room, in the envelope. Additionally he got me tickets for High Tea at the hotel. I was shocked that he got me so much, it was more than I had hoped for! After that he took me out for dinner at one of the best restaurants in Bondi. The food was great but I was most excited for the dessert, it was rated one of the best desserts in Sydney in 2010. And the orange granita with sweetened cream didn't disappoint me. Ben even made the effort to tell the waitress to bring it with a candle while I was in the bathroom. It didn't end there - after dinner stayed up and watched a movie with me. What a perfect day - I just kind of missed the warm weather a bit. I am used to have my birthday in hot weather and here in Australia it is the opposite, my birthday is in winter. However, I think I was quite lucky, the sun was shining and we were able to sit outside in the beergarden. So it wasn't too bad! More about my birthday weekend later!
