It was a holiday on sunday. Not the best weather though, so we decided to pack our bags, leave the clouds behind and make a roadtrip to the Czech border. A little shopping at the fashion outlet centre that is open 365 days a year.
There are a lot of sportswear and outdoor stores, so Stefan was more successful than me. I just bought a new sports bag and a cute black shirt from Mango. I tried on some dresses, but nothing that was worth buying.

I really should use my waving iron more often, dont you think? I love how my hair looks :D
That’s our slogan for yesterdays Bon Jovi concert. Sadly I had high hopes for this, but at the end it was worth all the lameness.
The weather started fine. It was cloudy, with a beautiful sunset at the horizon and it was cool, like I love my weather. So many people at Krieau, it was amazing. I read about 55.000, but I’m not really sure about that, couldn’t count them all, not enough fingers.
I had to work till 5 p.m. so Erin and I met an hour later (8 hour working day for me) at the stadium – so many people.
We decided to skip the supporting acts and instead hunt us some food. Bread and potatoes. And when we arrived, standing with a big safety distance to the stage, the show was about to start in 15 minutes (they said). Of course this was an utopian idea and we waited longer than that.
But it was fun looking at the people. We weren’t the youngest people there, but definitely short-handed.
It started with “That’s what the water made me” and a few raindrops. And after that “You give love a bad name“.
And then, nothing, except for the rain and this 2 guys. At first they were standing in front of us until they recognized we couldn’t see (there wasn’t much to see, I have to say). They moved next to us and spent the next 15 minutes with starring at me an Erin everytime I took a peek in their direction. We are creep magnets.
Then “It’s my life” started and it made us high hopes for the even better songs, but they didn’t came.
The rain got heavier by the minute and when the last song started I was wet to the bones. Even “bad medicine” couldn’t better my mood. I was disappointed.
We hoped for an ultimate encore and we also were talking about going home, when they dare to play “bed of roses”. haha!
At the end. I should have come for the beginning, go and eat a nice dinner and come back for the encore and all the songs we really wanted to hear the whole time “Wanted Dead or Alive“, “Have a Nice Day” and most of all “Livin’ on a Prayer“. It was amazing, I really wished I could say that about the whole concert. 2,5 hours at the end, but the best where the last 30 Minutes.
I know, there are people out there who see that in another way and that’s fine… Us living in the 80′s. haha!
Now It was more of “The Erin and Liz Show” for me.
I would have missed all the housewives in leather jackets reviving their youth for one evening and the promise to never be like that. The old men with grey hair starring at the girls holding hands during a song “look at those, shameless”. The trying-to-hard-hipsters and the usual Creeps.
Totally drunk poor man’s Russel Crowe who asked me for a lighter twice and totally drunk crazy guy grinding up on Erin. Of course I would have missed Jons smile on the big video screen and the feeling of hating him so much for making jokes about “showering with us”
Though I would have loved to miss walking home in the rain because EVERYONE tried to take the underground and the bus we had to take was rerouted somewhere else.
But I would have missed the last 3 songs, singing and dancing in the rain with Erin. And this moment, absolutely priceless. Even without “Always” and “Runaway“.
I have to go to work in 3 hours and I can’t sleep anymore. So I finally made an account on ask.fm, because I’m bored.
I don’t know if this is a good idea, but we will see. Hopefully it will be a lot of fun :D
So ask me one or more questions if you like, you don’t have to be registered. I will answer them as long as there are not mean. Me don’t like mean. :D
You know that feeling when you see someone with a suitcase or hear a train. This drive going somewhere else, away from everyday life, wanderlust. I have this all the time. Everytime I hear the city train at night when I leave the windows open or I see a plane.
So I took the chance last weekend and had a run in the country.
I really love trains (as long as I’m with people who keep quite *haha* – this time I had 2 doctors talking about euthanasia) – this feeling going somewhere new and away from your life is so relaxing for me, even if the ride is only a few hours. This goes for car rides and airports too.
Someone else who loves to travel and knows what I mean?
I stopped by the McCafe at the station and took a big chocolate cookie and a coffee frappe with me. I also feel like food tastes much better on a journey, as long as it’s not on a plane. But also “plane food” is more bearable while appeasing your wanderlust to the fullest
And of course no trip without a nice outfit. I really have to say, I wasn’t a big fan of bershka when I first set foot into this shop, but there are one or two pieces I have to buy everytime I go in and that’s enough reason to go in everytime I walk by.
Outfit rundown: dress and cardigan: bershka bag: Primark jewellry: Primark, DIY and thrifted shoes: Deichmann
So next time you go by train, think about me or better take me with you.
Yesterday we ordered really much Indian food. We got 4 different main dishes and a lot of salad and Naan. The curries came in these seperated plastic containers and we had the idea to use them for planting herbs.
I have to admit… I don’t have a green thumb, but I hope it works out. Keep your fingers crossed.
I bought the seeds at the health food store where I work.
Chive, parsley, dill, thyme, basil, oregano. And we also had some chilli seeds left over, because we love to cook with them. Habaneros and spanish chilli peppers.
Last sunday we went to “Tiergarten Schönbrunn” – I always loved it there, as a kid and as a grown-up. It’s always changing and there is always something nice to see. Schönbrunn Zoo is really big and the oldest zoo in the world.
I wore my new dress from “boohoo”
We arrived on 1 p.m. – There were so many people because of the beautiful weather :D It was really hard to take decent pictures, but I managed to get about 190. I will show you a few of them.
So many animals had siesta, it was sooo cute.
I do love Capybaras. And I got some picture of one yawning. ♥
So adorable with it’s sleepy look and all the bedding chipping on it.
Watching an Anteater showering and having fun. And some cuddling.
You can really see that it was a hot day for most animals too.
This Otter was the coolest. It had a stone with him most of the time, even when it swam around.
I also managed to see the big aquarium this time :D Last time I was in the zoo it was to late. Sadly it is really hard to take pictures of fishes, but I’ve done my best.
It is really worth the visit, so if you get the chance to go there, do it. And take me with you.
