As some of you might know, I'm an art history student and currently in my second master semester. Just like all my fellow students I have to absolve two so called "excursions", one inland and one abroad. The inland excursion started about a week ago and ended yesterday evening, including travel destinations such as Upper Austria, Salzburg, Bavaria (not so much inland, I guess), East Tyrol and Styria. Since our teacher is an expert in Byzantine art and architecture, we only visited churches that in some way were inspired by this particular style. In each city, 4-6 people gave a speech on the characteristic features of the building we were in and later started a discussion with the whole group. As you can imagine, we were always quite exhausted after 12-hour church analysis and were happy to go back to bed. Looking back at all of it know, I really must say though that I absolutely treasure the whole experience. I know it sounds cheesy, but it's true. I am definitely not a flagship-student, however I do feel that the whole excursion sharpened my perception of architecture and encouraged me to think more critically and observe more precisely. But enough with the boring talks, let's get to the pictures, shall we? :) Even though I didn't want to take my camera with me at first, I am now extremely happy that I did. I totally fell in love with my homecountry, exploring the beautiful landscapes and villages that we had passed through. I hope you'll enjoy the upcoming impressions as much as I do.

autumn charm.


Hey guys!! 
Dear god, it's been way to long since the last blogpost .. I just realized. I'm currently working on a lot of photo projects, which is why I tried to put my camera away as much as I could in my free time (a.k.a. blogpost-time) to simply get my mind off photoshop for once. But I really missed blogging, I'm telling you! That's why I would like to share with you today some lovely pictures that I took during the past weekend.

On Friday, my parents invited some good friends to dinner, which basically means that my mum served the perfect 5-course meal and put a lot of effort into the whole presentation -(she really doesn't think so, but I DO!). "Unfortunately" I could't taste most of those delicious treats, as I was invited to another party myself. :)

On Saturday, shortly after lunch, Mike and I went for a walk in a nearby neighborhood to enjoy the charm autumn has to offer. We had some coffee at Schloss Wartholz, a lovely place to visit at pretty much any season of the year.

We then went to a lake nearby to collect some chestnuts - and as you can see, we were quite successful! :)

Such a lovely day! :)
