An email promoting cheap airplane tickets got us and a week into semester two starting this year we were up very early for a morning plane ride from Melbourne to Sydney.

We spent most of the time walking around the city, eating yummy food (except the cheese dumpling I had - that has scarred me for life) and enjoying the sun that Melbourne was missing at the time. There was a detour to Pitt St Mall and black leather NikeAir Thea's happened... Oops. 

Even though we were only a week into uni at the time, it's nice to have a little get away every now and then. I've just finished class for this semester so now it's exams time. A mini get away is definitely in order soon.

Thanks for reading!

Kraków, Poland

Kraków, Poland was another city that I had not heard much of and blindsided me. It is a beautiful old city full of good and bad history that the city remembers.

We started off our stay in Kraków with a trip to the salt mines. The mine was enormous and included substantial sculptures, a large chapel and salt lakes. You may be surprised by this (not really), but everything, from the ground, ceilings and walls were salt. After the salt mines, we went to the "Kraków Under Nazi Occupation 1939-1945" exhibition, which was located in the administrative building of Oskar Schindler's factory. The exhibition was interesting and sad, it highlighted a tough era in Poland's past. Once we had finished up at the exhibition we hopped on a big golf buggy, the driver pumped up some polish death metal and we went to find a polish Milk Bar. In Kraków, the Milk Bars are not convenience stores as they are at home, they are cute cafes that sell great dumplings and freshly squeezed juices. I will never get over my grapefruit juice. We spent the rest of our stay walking around and enjoying the sites.

Also, during our stay in Poland we visited Auschwitz Concentration Camp. It was quite the experience, one that is hard to put into words. My friends and I mostly walked on in silence, it was depressing and moving. Whilst, it was an experience filled with sadness it is definitely one that I do not regret.

The countries I visited in Eastern Europe were beautiful and marked with a tragic recent history.


The next stop on my winter in Europe 14'/15' was Prague, Czech Republic.

A week into the semester starting back up, my boyfriend and I travelled to Sydney for the weekend. The week back at uni from a 6 week break is exhausting, we needed to get away* (* = sarcasm, in reality we found super discounted plane tickets and these were the only available dates).

   Coming from a very cold winter in Melbourne (Australian climate terms), the little clothes I had packed were too warm. The weather over that weekend was beautiful, I wish I wasn't wearing long pants, boots and a shirt dress ^^, oops. Note to self next time; shave legs.

   Please tell me I'm not the only one who has packed inappropriate clothes according to the weather for a trip.


  Let me know in the comments below.
