I'm going to Florida!

...i have known this since summer but i have paid for everything now and got my visa so now i am ready! I will officially be gone for a month, February 2016!

I have never been outside Europe so i am preparing me to the extreme and needs to know everything about the areas we are going to stay in. We land in Orlando and is going to live in the Kissimmee area. The part that is known as "the paradise of amusements parks". It's a part of my studies and we don't know exactly what we are going to do. But i think we are visiting VisitOrlando, Legoland and Universal studios as a part of our lessons and then there is extra time to visit Disney if we want to.

When we move on to Miami we are going to volunteer at the Wine and Food festival at South Beach. I have heard it should be really fun and apparently there is some famous chefs know from TV going to be there but i don't really see and cooking shows so i don't really know any of them beforehand but it sounds cool.

We ends the whole trip with a cruise to Bahamas with the Royal Caribbean cruise with All inclusive! I'm usually not much for sailing and cruising is not something that is high on my 'to do' list after having a roommate that was obsessed with Titanic.... But i don't say no to experience something new!

A year in 'goodreads challenge'

On the page goodreads you can find books to read, you can see which books your friend have been reading and you can give yourself a challenge. First i gave myself a challenge to read 12 books. That was one each month and for one who normally didn't read that much, it sounded like a lot. But over the year it really made me want to read some more. So i found time to it and i ended up changing my goal to 25 and right now i have read 26 this year and i'm still reading.
So i though i wanted to show and comment on the 25 books i have randomly read in my challenge.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
It's a classic and even though it is kind of old, it was not to hard to read acutally.
Fist time i met this story was in the Disney version of it and i can't stop seing Mickey Mouse as Bob Cratchit. I'm so sorry.
I gave it 4 our of 5 stars

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
This was extremely in 2014 and i haven't seen the movie yet.
I thing i bought this book in London when i went Christmas shopping with a friend and now that people said it was the best movie in a long time i wanted to read it first. It is not the best book i have read but it is very cute and yes... i did cry in the end. But i never fell in love with Augustus like many others. I missed that a bit.
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

Allegient by Veronica Roth
It's the third book in the Divergent Series and i read the two others at Christmas 2014. I really like this series. It was one of these books i wanted to read before i saw the movies. I really lived this book through. I felt so frustrated whenever the characters did and even though my favorite character in the movies is Eric because he is bad ass and... well really hot, my favorite in the books is of course Tobias because i just love a good love story, ok.
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Oh yes Percy Jackson! The first of many book by Rick Riordan. Again i wanted to read the book before i saw the movie. And yes the movies is kinda old by now, but now that i started reading so much i wanted to read it first. Oh my i loved it! I couldn't imagine it at first, but i loooved it! Rick Riordan has a really humorous way of writing and i am so caught!
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

Beautiful Strage by Alicia Kat Vancil
To be honest, i don't even remember this book. I had to look at the description on goodread to remember a few things about it. It is another teen romance book with a supernatural touch which was extremely popular a few years back. Though i remember there wasn't a lot happening in the story but i think it's because it's a prequel. It was not memorable.
I gave it 2 out of 5 stars.

The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
Now we are talking! The first book in the Kane Chronicles! It is the best thing i have read after Harry Potter! It is Egyptian mythology happening in the present with a lot of magic going on and it is awesome! It's about two siblings that was separated at an early age. Carter is traveling with his dad while Sadie lives in London with their grandparents. Their mother's dead as a mystery. Their dad takes them both to the british museum and.. well... shit happens! Don't want to give everyhting away!
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

Throne Of Fire by Rick Riordan
The second book in the Kane Chronicles. Of course i just wanted to read this as soon i could. I borrowed these at the library because they are so expensive in danish and i don't really live near the library so i was really going out of my way to get these books. I live in the middle of nowhere... so it really means a lot...
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan
Precy Jackson again! I don't know if it is cheating but i listen to this as a sound book. I was in a creative flow and i was drawing a lot so i could not "find the time" to read but i still could not just... don't be around books. So i was listning to this while drawing. The narrator was amazing and gave the characters a new life i could not give them myself becuase i saw the first movie and started to put the actors faces on the the characters. It is horrible now that the movies is nothing like the books. The books are soooo much better.
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

The Perk of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
This was a easy read while i was on vacation in Berlin. It was one of those books i bought in London the year before. I saw the movie long before and didn't know it was a book before it was a movie *embarrassed*. It is better than the movie though. I understand so much more when i can read Charlies thoughts instead of only seing it all from the outside. Charlie has so many problems we don't hear that much about in the movie.
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

The Serpent's shadow by Rick Riordan
The last book in the Kane Chronicles. As i said; the best thing i have read beside Harry Potter. It have learn me so much about the Egyptian mythology even though it is a fantasy book. It inspired me to write my own thing about mythology. 
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Another one of the book i bought in London. I remember i downloaded a random app and talked with some girl from England that recommended it to me. I really like it! It's a sweet teen love story. Very realistic if you ask me. Everyone has their problems and some are worse than others. But even though we are very different we can always help each other through. And that is what Park does with Eleanor. So cute!
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

The princess and the god by Doris Orgel
So after i read all three books in the Kane Chronicles and two Percy Jacksom books i went to the library and ask the librarian to recommend me some books about mythology. She gave me this book about Psyche and Cupid told from Psyche's point of view. It was really meh. Not very special but i do like myths.
I gave it 2 out of 5 stars.

The Beautiful Being by Jessica Barksdale Inclan
I don't even know about this one. It was a very random book from Forbidden Planet in London and it was on sale. And i'm not surprised why. It was really a pain to get through but i wanted to finish it now that i acutally paid for it. It was a really strange alien love story with a pair that don't want to realize they are made for each other and both walk out in the desert to find each other, have sex and then saves the world randomly. I don't even know...
I gave it 1 out of 5 stars.

Beautiful Dead: Summer by Eden Maguire
This is my cry series. Summer is the third book in the Beautilful Dead series and i don't dare to read the last one. It's about a girl that helps some angels that have an unsolved case. Summer was one of her friends so of course i cried a lot. But i'll admit i cry through the all. The last book is about her boyfriend who was stabbed in the back so he doesn't know who killed him. I don't think i can deal with the good bye to the boyfriend so i'll wait with that book...
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

Me before You by Jojo Moyes
I don't know where to start. It was just really really good! I loved all the characters and as Lou i became madly in love with a man in a wheelchair. Will is such a weird character and i really hated him at first but oh my i got hit so hard. I can't describe how happy i became when i heard they are making this a movie. And Sam Claflin will be playing Will!!! I'm in heaven!
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
It was one of the many books i read when i was on vacation. I planed my reading so i would be reading this while i was in France visiting my family. I live nowhere near Paris where the book takes place so i didn't really get that Parisian feeling about the book i wanted but it was cute and easy to read. I sure will be reading the next two books from Perkins in the future!
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

I hate Myselfie by Shane Dawson
I was a big fan of Shane a few years back and when i saw i had read a book about his life i was very curious to see what was behind his funny and rather disturbing facade. I was really surprised! He was talking so much about himself in the videos and we still didn't know him that well. So much was going on behind the camera. He had dealt with so much shit. I'm surprised how he is still going strong today.
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

Fallen: Passion by Lauren Kate
It was so long time ago i read the first two books in the Fallen series so i was really confused when i started reading this one. But i remembered it as i read it and it is again a very easy read. It's a love story between a human that should not be born and a fallen angel. Very confusing though. I love me some fantasy and i love the fact that i googled some of the names of the angels and they are actually names from myths. This one is coming as a movie late 2016 i think?
I gave it 3 out of 5 stars.

Girl Online by Zoe Sugg
There was so much fuss online about this book because Zoe didn't mention it was ghost written but i wanted to give it a chance. It's not the best book you will read. It is a easy read and at first i though it was too much teen drama but well. There is no teen story without a lot of drama. Cute anyway!
I gave it 3 out of 5 stars.

Where's the Groom? by Sophie Meyer
This book was free on Google Play and well. I understand why. It was a really weird story about a control freak that is forced to go to a lecture about life. And she finds out that she wants to married even though she is single. So she plans a wedding and makes a fool out of all her friends and family and well... let's just say that the ending is really random and gives you the need to flip a table.
I gave it 2 out of 5 stars.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I was really late with this one. It was again one of the book i wanted to read before i saw the movie and the movie came out long ago. It was on sale so i had to buy it. I really liked the book but the movie was different (as movies often is) so when i finally saw Maze Runner i had enough and went to see the second movie before i read the book. Then i will not be disappointed about the movie after i read the book. So i guess that is my new thing. 
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes
When i read the resume of this book i though it was just me. I was surprised by the main character. She was not what i thought she would be but it turned out to be an okay book and well sad as well. I see it as the story of a wannabe. Like the girls behind Regina in Mean Girl? The ending though...
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

Geek Girl by Holly Smale
Oh yes. The Geek Girl Harriet. It's a sweet story with A LOT of weird fact that you didn't know you wanted to know but you smile at her geekyness. Harriet is really awesome in my eyes. And really awkward! She does the impossible and becomes a model and everyting become more awkward. Then this dude 'Lion boy' is in the picture... It is a must read for every teen book lover!
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

Geek Girl: Model Misfit by Holly Smale
I could not let Harriet get away. There was a surprise in the start of the book where i though i had skipped a book but it was not the case. I really love this series because of the über geekyness of them. And in this one Harriet is on Japan and there is some japanese going on which i love!
I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

Magnus Chase: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
I have been waiting for this book for a while really! I added it on my 'to read' list as soon it was announced. I loved the greek and egyptian themed book but the Norse mythology is something "local" if you know what i mean. So i wanted to see how Riordan would portraying the vikings old gods. It was as fun as the other books and i can't wait to get my hands in the sceond book.
I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.

My first big assignment...

...and it's actually not bad.

I was a little worried when they started with the sentence "You have to write 21 pages." Oh shit... But right now i'm actually positive and right now i'm at 7300+ out of the about 50.000 that makes the 21 pages.

I'm writing about the fact that people stop buying bundled offers from the travel agencies and tend to do everything by themself. Book plane, hotel and activities and how to make them buy the budled offers again so that the guide industry doesn't die out.
It's actually not the most uplifting assignment ever, now that i'm actually educated tour guide. I hope to find something good in the end or many find someone who has some good idea is can pull on.
But the whole assignment it so much easier to write, when you are writing about something that acutally matters to you or you are interested in. And i'mso happy that my old guideschool friends wanted to help me and answear all the questions i had about there destination and guests!

Now that i'm only going to write my assignment all December i guess i will have a lot of free time. I hope to read a few Christmas books and bake a few things and maybe actually be active on this blog, ey?
I'm going to help my dad at the veteran home where my dad is actually going to play Santa... yes... And uh! I'm going to a Christmas concert with Stig Rossen with my mom and grandma. He's the danish disney voice and the voice of Christmas in our home so i'm looking forward to that!

Here i sits and here i remain until done.

Sunday 22 November 2015


I went to a psychologist. I'm fine! Nothing to worry about really! I just got things out that i have been kinda afraid to share with people but i was also told some things by the psychologist that was really helpful to know.

I'm a introvert. I knew that before i talked to her. But i have always seen as a burden. I never said anything in calss and got some bad grades out of it. I am a listner rather than a speaker. I can be soical, but I LOVE being alone. Well.. too much.

And that is my problem. Okay. I got an appointment because i had quite a melt down at a school event were there was a party and some sleepover going on and i could not handle it.
My new classmates are great and already the first week I said to a few of them that i could be a bit anxiously when there was too many people around and there was so much new stuff going on around me. This event was a whole academy sleepover thingy so there was a lot of people everywhere. Drunk people. 
It's all because of a really bad middle school experience that i don't drink. Not that anything bad happened to me, but i didn't want to do it and becuase of it, i didn't really have any friends and when i spoke to the teachers about it they basically told me to drink so i could get friends... Yeah.. No thanks.

So i think it clicked for me when i bought my soda and someone was pointing out that i wasn't drinking. I have been made fool of so many times because of it.. so I went outside quick before i started crying infront of everyone. Those two people i told i was anxious saw it and i got a nice talk with one of my teachers and she signed me up for a talk with the psychologist.

We spoke about how i was treated in 8-9. grade and how that has affected. It basiclly all started there because of the bullying. She said i most likly has social phobia because of it. But it was totally normal! She said "It is a normal reaction to something abnormal." because people should not be bullied. It's not normal! She told me how awesome it was that i actually got through the guideschool and that i knew that i had a problem. I should just stop being too harsh on myself, because it's normal and not my fault. 

And the thing about being introvert. There is nothing wrong about it! It's acutally quite awesome. We are doing the thinking while extroverts are doing the talking. We are the brains, the master minds behind it all! We should embrace it! Not try to hide it away and pretend to be extrovert like the rest. It is always awkward as hell anyway. Only around 10% of the population in Denmark is introvert and that's why we never get a fair chance anywhere, but i really hope that people will open their eyes and see the potential in the two kinds of people like they did when they accepted that some people were actually lefthanded and there was nothing wrong with it!

Soundcheck tickets for 5sos!

I am SO excited about this!
Last month I managed to get these holy tickets for 5 Seconds Of Summers upcoming Tour 'Sounds Live Feels Live'!
I must say i was so nervous that morning that i cound not eat and my stomach hurted. I had to leave class 15 min before the sale that started at 10AM because i was jumping up and down in the chair. Basiclly! I'm pretty sure that those who saw me in the common area thought i was on something xD

But i refreshed the page 100 times and was on skype with some other fans who also wanted tickets.
I was very close to screaming when i saw i got the tickets for me and Camilla. I was shaking so much of excitement that i had a hard time writing my credit card infromation so i could pay for them.

I got the freaking soundcheck tickets so we can watch them already at soundcheck and after that they will sit down and let us talk a bit with them. Ask some questions and stuff. After that we have some crazy good spots in front of that stage on the left which is Michaels side of the stage!!

Halloween this year!

Nothing much was going on but it was very cozy.
Only a few friends was here and we were watching "scary movies" and I bought a lot of weird halloween snacks for us. Actually we didn't get to see the movie i most of all wanted to see. I have never seen Hocus Pocus but we started it and it crashed and we gave up because we were to tired to wait for it to work.
Denmark is still not the place for Halloween so we don't have children walking around and asking for candy so to do SOMETHING to make it a bit scary we went outside in the awkward dark tried to make my camera work and took some creepy pictures. We did a little makeup (ok maybe a little lot) to make it better. I really don't hope my neighbors could see us running around in the wet backyard with a ladder to hold the camera, some camping chairs and a lit pumpkinhead.

WIP pictures of Michael CLifford

I have been kind of MIA on this blog and i'm sorry about that but here i try again and comes with a WIP post about a drawing i did a while back of Michael Clifford from 5sos. 
5sos is my favorite band at the moment and i get a lot of friendships out of it, so there was kind of a pressure on me to draw another band member. Well a pressure to draw Michael acutally, because i know 3 Michael girls.

AP degree in hospitality and tourism management

I am now 3 weeks into my education so i though i wanted to share a little something about it with you guys.

It is a two year academic education which is basiclly event management but it specializes in hospitality and tourism. We are right now working with the local cities to improve the tourism there.
It is a learning by doing education, so everyhting we make and plan can be used by the city or some communities if they want, so we are actually helping real companies. Not just reading or pretending we are about helping them by writing an assignment.
This week we acutally moved our lecture to a castle (Spøttrup borg) just to be in the element of the "tourism".

I of course want to go the "travel" way. I want to work with travel agencies and plan peoples vacations into the smallest detail. Now that i already have a travelguide education I think that could be ideal. I want to make sure that as many people as possible gets some possitive experiences out of their vacations. And as many as possible!
I can also use it myself to find the cheaps ways to travel and where to travel.

As a part of the education, we are moving the lectures to Florida at FIU next year for a month. It is not everyone who is going and of course there are lectures at home too, but it is a bit more fun to go to Florida. But more about that later!!

In the 3. semester we have to find a company for an internship. I don't know where to go yet, but i really hope i can go to London, now that my lecturer have some connections over there. I have also been thinking about writing the Warner Bros Studio in London, and see if they want me for 3 months. How awesome would that be?

My first cosplay photoshoot

Being creative is one of the things i enjoy most in life. When i was going to my Disney audition last year, i made a Belle costume i took with me but never got to use acutally. But i really loved making the costume and loved playing a character so i have 4 costumes now. One of them not quite finished.

Before summer i made an agreement with my friends that we had to go on a photoshoot when the weather was nice and well... we live in Denmark so there was not many chances in the summer. So in the end of August we went out on a photoshoot when i walked around town in my Belle costume.
They did a really great job with my hair and makeup. I was a lost case i both now that i naver do my hair and pretty much only wear eyeliner.

Both of them had a great camera with them and both serious pictures and silly picutres were taken. But if you want to see the best of the pictures please visit my DaviantArt gallery here.

Eating out and eating good in Rüdesheim

Rüdesheim is like my second home in the summer, so i have tried close to all restaurants around town and of course i have some favorites. Some of them have the most amazing food and some have the friendelist staff. I' tell you about my favorites of both.

"Strauß" Gartenwirtschaft

This place can be hard to find. It is a little opening, kind of like a garage door, but there is kind of an alley that leads to an outdoor restaurant. It has a roof, so you can sit outside, even though the weater is bad and they have heaters too it needed.
The reason why i love this place is the owner. An nice old japanese guy who happen to be really good at making classic german food. One of the first years we were there he was going around chased flies. We though it was a bit odd, so we asked him why. A bird had a nest in the corner of the alley entrance and has left it because of the many people there. So i was feeding the chicks flies, so they world survive. The year after we went in there to ask how it ended with the birds and two acutally survived.

Another thing is, that we kind of have a fun competition going on with the owner. We always order the same in there, schnitzel with mushroom sauce (schnitzel jäger art) because it is the best snitzel in Rüdesheim! The first few times we were there i was a little girl with quite an appetite and he was impressed with how much i could eat. So if i could eat the schnitzel i made, i would get a free icecream. Year after year the schnitzels and getting bigger and bigger and this year was not an exception. But the fun part was that all of us eat it all except my dad. So we all got free icecream except him. It was so funny! 
(The owner speaks danish as well and has the menu in many different languages)
The fries was in a bowl to share. I didn't eat any...
As you see.. i got the biggest schnitzel.

Eiscafe Tirreno

To me vacation+Germany= Eiscafes. I really love eiscafes and i wish other countries would do this as much as Germany because it is so cozy! Eiscafe Tirreno is an Italian eiscafe that makes all the ice by themselves. It is really good and they are so fast in making the most awesome desserts like the one on my picture. It is a "Erdbeerbecher" Strawberry cup with freash strawberries and vanilla ice. My mom got a cherry one.
They have so many different kinds of icecreams and desserts. When you get a table, you will have four different menu card. A fun thing they have that i really recommend is their "spaghetti icecream" It is simply icecream that looks like spaghetti with sauce with cream in the middle. If you want a "going-out" icecream they also have desserts with alcohol in them. 

Bäcker Dries "Bäckerbub"

Okay let's be honest. Most people today is drawn by the "free WIFI" sign. I was too. I have been walking by this baker so many times  when i was younger. Only looking inside at the food and cakes and think "wooow" but then kept walking. It was until i got a smartphone. I was in need of internet and i didn't want to use the internetcafe in the town, so i told my parents about this place and we have come there many times since.
It is a baker but at the same time a cafe. They have a killer breakfast menu with scramble eggs and all that but if you ask me, the girl with the heart made of sweets, i came there for their cakes. The one in the picture is a strawberry cake and it was so heavy that you don't need to eat for a long time, after eating this. It was so good!
Also, im a bit of a tea snob and the germans are not tea people. I get ticks when i go into a cafe and i ask for tea and they only askes "Black or green?" There is so much more to tea than that. So when i came into this bakery and asked for tea, they had a whole list of different black teas and green teas. That is heaven for me right there!

Ristorante Da Toni
Im sorry to say, but i forgot to take pictures from this restaurant. But let's just say that when you automaticlly log in on their WIFI, you are there too often.
This is an Italian restaurant and it is really one of the best i have even been on. Maybe because i haven't been to Italy yet? I can't say.
Their menu is really rich and there is so much to choose from. I have never got the same two times while i have been there. They, of course, specializes in pasta in so many different ways that it is human possible. Their pizzas are phenomenal even though they are so simple. The waiters there are really sweet and they don't mock you if you can't pronounce one of the many Italian names for the food.
This is by fare both my mom and dads favorite and i should say from my dad, that i should recommend the spaghetti carbonates.

What to see and do in Rüdesheim and around

After spending 8+ summers on the campsite in Rüdesheim am Rhein i'm sure i must have seen pretty much everything by now. I'm sure that many people will not agree with my choices of what to see, but have in mind, that i'm not an alcohol drinker, though the area is very famous for their weinbrand, Asbach Uralt, and their homemade wine.

1. Drosselgaße
The world famous party street in old German style. There is so many cruise ships docking in Rüdesheim only because of Drosselgaße. It is were everything happens in Rüdesheim in the evening. There are live music in all the restaurants and waiters are dresses in lederhosen and and the women looks like milkmaids with their tartan dresses.
I must warn you. The activicy on Drosselgaße is all about the cruise ships. If there is no ships, they don't do a big effort about the whole old cozy german style.

2. Bingen Rüdesheimer boat trip "Ringticket"
The area around Rhüdesheim is really wonderful is unlike anything else! So if you are the sporty type (without being too sporty really) then you can buy the "Ringticket". A ringticket is a tour you buy in the office in Oberstraße 37, very close to Drosselgaße.
Your tour starts with ride in a cable railway above the wineyards above Rüdesheim which gives you a glorious view about the city and the river with Bingen on the other side.

When you get to the top you may have noticed the big statue that kind of looks like a small version of the statue of liberty, German version of course. It is Niederwald Denkmal. A statue Kaiser Wilhelm I made in 1871 to mark the foundation of the German empire after the war. It is really beautiful and the view from up their is amazing as well!

Now the sporty part comes! There is a 5km walk though a forest. There is a longer way around in the forest, if 5km is too short for you. There are signs on the trees where you have to go, so you can basiclly not get lost in there. There is an old hunting lodge in the forest where you can get something to drink or eat, if you feel like it. You can also buy a pack of deer feed in an automat and try to handfeed the deers. They are so cute! They drool alot though.
The railway on the way down is not a cabin but a simple wooden chair with a safety equipment so you can't fall down. But if you are very afraid of heights, you may have to walk down.

You will end up the neighbor town Assmannshausen. They don't have must activity but as every small town in Germany they have a few restaurants, so if you need something to drink after your walk and the hunting lodge wasn't something for you, there is hope! In Assmannshausen you take a boat/cruise back to Rüdesheim. Fear not if it is sailing the wrong way. You will just get a longer trip, but you will end in Rüdesheim at some point. While sailing there is also a chance to get something to eat and drink!

3. Castle tour down the Rhein
This is not just in Rüdesheim, but along the Rhein.
It is not a secret, that most of the way up and down the Rhein, is as beautiful as Rüdesheim. Rüdesheim is just a town with a lot of opportunities, now that is it a lot bigger, that many of the other town along the Rhein. If you drive north from Rüdesheim (the way the rhein is running) there are alot of castles around. Some more maintained than others.
The first of them was build by the ancient Romans, back when south Germania was a part of the empire. They were used to get duty from those who transported goods by ships. There is so many castles, that i believe it must have been an very expensive way to use.
Others were build by rich people after 1000th like nobility, bishops etc.

One of my favorites is Burg Rheinstein. It is build in 1300th and is very maintaind as it was back then. It have been used to many different things though time and you can experince it all, if you visit it. Today it mostly for tourists and for weddings for people who want a oldfashion fairytale wedding. It is a part of UNESCO Cultural Heritage "Upper Middle-Rhine Valley".

You can find a list of all the castles and their history here.

Yet another summer in Rüdesheim am Rhein

After spending two weeks away from home (and stable wifi) i am now no the blog again, ready to write!

We went to Rüdesheim Am Rhein again this year, now that my parents do not have any wild imagination and don't want to drive that fare away with a caravan. I went with them because i didn't have to work and had nothing better to do.

An the other side, Rüdesheim sure is beautiful. The nature along the river Rhine is really something and hundreds of old castles is still places along the river. Many of them build by the old Romans when they owned the southern part of Germany/Germania. They used all this castles to own money from those who want to sail past with their goods that they had to sell elsewhere.

On both sides of the river there is a lot of vine fields. You can see how their small tractors are working their way up the hills. It sure must be risky working on those fields.
Every little city down along the Rhine has their own wines you can tast on the many restaurants. You can not find the wines in the Supermarkeds down there. If you look around there is small stores that specializes in local wines. There is actually also Weingärten (Vine gardens) where they only serv local wine. Not beer, no cola, no food. Only wine. They are normally owned by those who make the wine and is really charming small places.

Most of the main streets in Rüdesheim is fully conducted. Such german charm.
Everyone who comes to Rüdesheim, normally comes to experience the famous Drosselgaße. It is a very narrow street with lots of stores, german music and waiters in traditional german clothes. You can't find this amount of lederhosen and milkmaid clothes anywhere else.

I will be writing a few reviews and tips from my trip very soon.

Here is some pictures from my trip!

Rapunzel cosplay DIY

I have been working on this dress for sooo long now. I did almost give up, because i though it was impossible and my sewing skills is not the best, but i kept going and i have been making a huge progress the last few days! So i though i wanted to show you it on here, like i do on my instagram.

I bought a dress in the secondhand shop and it just screamed Rapunzel so i got it for only 55DKK or less? I can't remember, but it is creap for a dress made out of satin. I think it is someones old prom dress to be honest. 

I stared down pinstest for a few weeks and started to buy all the materials i though i needed. When i told the lady in the hobby store what my plan was and said i didn't have any experience in making dresses (beside the Belle one of course) she just looked at me weird. "Are you sure you want to do this?" oh hell yes.

I think it is going pretty well! ANd yes i got a wig too!
