Vacation 2/3: Cologne, Germany

Part two of my vacation, Cologne, Germany! Woo! I had the most amazing time in Cologne. I tried to take in as much of the city as possible, which was pretty difficult because I was there for a 3 day metal festival, Euroblast. The festival went from 1pm to 11:30pm and had after shows too. So basically we (my boyfriend and I) woke up at 9am and went exploring in the city until 12pm, would go back to our hotel and freshen up, then to the music festival until midnight. So, so exhausting, but it was the best experience of my life! I met up with a friend from Sweden and made a new German friend too. I never realised how much I needed German food in my life until I went to Cologne. There was this bakery chain in the city that had streusel EVERYTHING!

Just one more holiday…

  So far it’s only November and the temperature is already at 30C, that’s 86F for the Americans. What better way to celebrate the non-existent change from Spring to Summer by heading to the beach for the long weekend? I’ve been home for a week, just got back from a week in Melbourne and I’m off on another short holiday! I’m already planning for a holiday in New Zealand next year. Before you say anything, I know, I know, I haven’t even posted about my other holidays yet, but I promise they’re coming, I’m just going to post one destination at a time because I have so many photos to share with you! I will share a couple in this post because I care. Christmas is just a month away and I hate to admit it but I’m already jumping out of my skin in excitement. I. Cannot. Wait. I even started watching Christmas tv specials, that’s how serious I am. Christmas is always such an exciting time for me, because, hello? The whole day …

Exciting news everyone (it’s not the frozen yoghurt)

  Hello lovelies, I’m not sure if it’s happing where you live, but here in Brisbane there seems to be some kind of crazy obsession with frozen yoghurt shops. They keep popping up everywhere! Not that I’m complaining, I love the popping pearls, they’re so much fun. And have you tried taro flavour? That’s some taasty yoghurt guys. 10/10 would recommend. Some exciting things have happened, first of all, guess who is going to Germany? This gal! That’s right, everything worked out for the better and my boyfriend and I are heading to Germany! On top of going to Europe we’re also heading down to Melbourne for a week. It’s going to be so, so exciting,Β I’ll be sure to take lots of photos so you lovely people can check out our holidays <3. We also celebrated our anniversary this month with dinner at one of my favourite restaurants in Brisbane, Pony. I highly recommend going there for dinner, I’ve been there countless times and each time I am delighted with their amazing food. We checked …
