Good evening everybody! :) I really must say, I had a fantastic weekend. On Saturday I was at the casino where I didn't just gamble all my money away (and by 'all' I mean 20 euros), I also enjoyed a superb dinner there before we went to the actual casino-part. As you may know, Esther celebrated her dad's birthday on Sunday (and I really have to say, I just love the pictures she has taken of the 'Looshaus'). I totally understand that she was dissapointed that there are no real food-options for vegetarians there, however, I guess, we both -and also hundreds of other Austrians- really enjoy the view of Semmering and Rax mountains while you're sitting on the terrace and enjoying the nice summer weather. Well, but back to my weekend. I would first like to start with showing you some pictures I took while taking an evening stroll in Esther and my hometown on Sunday. Since I had eaten tons of icecream that day, I felt like I had to get at least some "exercise".. So I did ..
First I went to the river near our house and just sat there for a few minutes..
I don't know why, but the sound of water really calms me down..
Then I went on to the park nearby- well I guess you can't really call it a park- let's say to the small meadow aside with trees and bushes on it.
After I had arrived there, I thought- why not go a little further than that? So I went to the outer part of the city center.
This picture up there I really love. It's a nice motive I think,- these decayed yet very beautiful buildings once were famous shops I guess, back in the old times when my Grandma was still a young girl.
This I found really cool- while looking up to the sky I noticed this strange tree-formation on a small mountain bordering our town. Fascinating, isn't it? :)
After I reached the end of the street I again thought to myself.. why not go a little further than that? So I passed the footbridge over the train rails. - At this point my evening stroll reminded me of this Forrest Gump Scene where Forrest starts running and also says to himself "...And I figured since I run this far, maybe I'd just run across the great state of Alabama.." Haha, yeah, that's what it felt like. :)
It was two hours later when I finally looked at my watch for the first time and realized that I had been out for a while now! But I didn't want to go home quite yet. So I went on further and ten minutes later arrived at Esther's house. I guess, she thought I was drunk when she read my SMS: "Haha. I'm standing right in front of your house". And she was like "What? Why?" and I said "I just wanted to go for a walk". So I made a short stop at her entrance door and took back our storage box I accidently gave back to her along with the box where she put my boyfriend's cupcakes in. :)
Her sister, however, wasn't as fast enough to run away from my cam, so I took a pic of her fancy pink running shoes.
After that, believe it or not guys, I actually went home.
Oh, and before I forget- here's a little sneak-peek of my four-course dinner at the casino!
Starters: Salmon Maki with horseradish and mayonnaise, soy sauce and caviar
Soup: Asparagus cream soup - (and believe you me- that was the most delicious soup I have ever eaten in my entire life)
Main course: Beef with mushrooms and potato-leek puree
Dessert: Lemon crème brûlée with strawberry Daiquiri sorbet in mango sauce (sorry guys, forgot to take a picture of that one)
We sat outside and had a wonderful view on the park right next to the casino.
And here's my outfit of the night-
I wore a black F21 dress split to the thigh and a short H&M blazer with silver details- I got that one a few days ago on sale!
I really liked it! :)
