I’m sorry for the lack of posts the past couple of days but I’ve been busy organizing the last bits and spending lots of time with my friends.
Now I am currently on my way to Frankfurt as I am writing this. I literally cannot believe that my journey is finally starting, but before I get to all the new travel, Australia and backpacking content, I want to recap the last month.
Now that I am posting this, I already arrived in Melbourne :D So if you want to be up to date where I am and what I am doing, just follow me on Instagram!
This summer has been very special to me as I finished school and really got to enjoy it since mid-May already and it has been my dream escape almost every day at school in the past.
I finally was able to spend my time with whatever I wanted, work and earn money and of course, make beautiful memories.
And the great thing about it – my summer isn’t over yet. On the other side of the world, I’ll start again with spring so I can write another summer recap in March next year! :D
What Moment will stay in your memories forever?
There are several days that I won’t ever forget. The getaway to Vienna with Anna, many great nights with yummy food and laughs with my friends and the last weekend before I left home (that I’m going to tell you more about in my September review). But the probably most remarkable memory was dancing and singing together with my whole school year on my final prom. We danced to “We’re all in this together” from High School Musical and sung “I’ll always remember you” by Hannah Montana – ‘memories I’ll always save’!
What song did you listen to over and over?
There hasn’t been one particular song. Lots of Mogli, Grace Vanderwaal, Jacks Mannequin…
That’s even harder to decide than my favourite memory cause I ate sooo much good food. But to name three: Asian noodle salad with tofu and a sweet lime sauce in Leipzig, Lasagne with my best friends, vegan pizza with all the good veggies and selfmade pizza breads filled with spinach and cheese last weekend at my friend’s new apartment – and of course all the fresh sweet fruit!
What have you done for the first time this summer?
Worked in a beergarden or worked somewhere for money in general and it has been a great experience. I really loved the atmosphere at my work and if I can, I would definitely return!
But more importantly, there are many new things ahead of me: travelling alone for the first time, flying alone, going to Australia, backpacking, staying in hostel dorms…
Did you have a Bucket List for the Summer? Have you done it all?
Not really. I had some plans like going to Wernigerode where I plan to study or exploring Vienna with Anna. Making a travel video in Portugal with my brother (that is almost finished!) and spending time with my friends and enjoying the amazing weather – that I all fulfilled.
I think this quote describes my summer and my whole life pretty perfectly at the moment – and I love it!
Your favourite picture from this summer
I’m really bad at deciding things like that… usually, decisions aren’t too hard for me but I suck at choosing one out of many loved ones, so I’ll just show you a few.
The pictures I took with Katja for the blog post: We drown in plastic.
This picture will always remember me of the hot summer evening we had in Vienna.
Pretty Food Pic’s I took with all the fresh yummy summer fruit!
Sunset pictures from Portugal that my brother took of me.
And last but not least this cute picture of my best friends an I at our final prom!
I’ve only been to one concert this summer: Mogli in Leipzig and I wish I would have made it to the Lollapalooza in Berlin where I’ve had the best weekend last year, but it would’ve been too stressful with all the packing and preparing for Australia.
What is planned for the next Summer?
My summer is not over yet, but for the next European summer I’ll still be in Australia and flying to Bali in July, meeting my best friends there and exploring Indonesia and probably Singapore, Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Kuala Lumpur. But it’s nothing set.
