Jardim Zoológico Lisboa

Here we go again: A new blog post and it has not been more than 2 weeks already, ha! (only 10 days, but who is counting..) haha

As promised to my loyal followers on Facebook, I will finally show you the photos I took in Lisbon’s AMAZING zoo. That week I also received a special visit, which made this trip even better: Dr. Steel aka Captain Cool aka Bernhard. 😀 (I am not the one who came up with those names, I would have preferred the cute ones. hihihi)

Starting off with the entrance…You can already see a lot of cute ducks, peacocks and even monkeys jumping around before even paying the entrance fee. (Quick note for those fast food addicts out there: They even have a McDonald’s on the zoo premises. I have never seen this before. haha) However, the 20€ are totally worth it, because this is one of the coolest zoos I have seen so far. (And since I love animals I have been to quite a number of zoos, so I know what I’m talking about. :D)

What I really liked was the area with the tigers, because of the glass walls, which provides a pretty good view. One thing I really have to mention is the weird behavior of one tiger. It kept running against the glass and backed up in a very weird way. I don’t know what that tiger has been through but it must have been something disturbing. After a while it calmed down and I was able to take this cute photo. 🙂 Other than that it had a nice and big place to chill with many opportunities to hide. 😀

The best thing of this zoo was by far the cable car that takes you all over the premises with an amazing view of the animals. I don’t know who came up with that idea, but this is GREAT! For one, you get to watch the animals from this unique spot from above and I think it might be less stressful for the animals, since you only get the chance to look at them for a few seconds, since the cable car keeps moving without stopping and moreover there are still some great hiding spots if it’s getting too much for them.

So if you ever come to Lisbon and you are an animal lover as I am, this is the place to go! Below you will find my pictures. (click on each of the photos in order to make them bigger) Enjoy. 🙂

See you soon!

Quick update

Hello world!

Looking at my last blog post, I realize that it already dates back to October 12th, which is waaaaay too long ago. I knooooowwwww, I am supposed to keep you updated in regular intervals, or at least this is the plan for now. I have always really liked writing and my goal is to regularly write something.. just anything! I have kept a diary since I was about six or seven years old, so I indeed started writing pretty much at the same time I learned how to write in school. haha. My first entries’ handwriting looks literally like someone is holding a pen for the first time in their life. So excuse my lazy self, but sometimes I rather like to keep the readers of my diary ( = me and my future selfs haha) updated.

Anyway, here is a brief summary of what I have mainly done during the previous two weeks:

  • I have finally finished and handed in my bachelor thesis. whoooooo….! Still waiting for it to be graded though.
  • Regarding my planned internship in February, I have already sent out quite a few applications, but I still need to write about 500 more. Damn you, job market! Wish me luck! 😀
  • I am in (almost) full control about what’s going on at university. I even have time to attend some extra courses, such as learning print (“Python”) programming. (You are a nerd if you know what it means :D)
  • I have been back in Austria for one weekend, due to a very special family-related occasion. 😉
  • Aaaaand I dyed my hair pink. (Temporarily, so it was gone after about 3 times washing, but it was fun. :D)

So for the first time since I have started my bachelor degree I don’t feel as stressed about studying and all the deadlines as ever before. Maybe that’s because I know that I will be finished soon and that the most time-consuming part is finally over. I am still planning on doing my master degree, but I am really looking forward to my first full-time internship. 😀 (which is longer than 1 or 2 months)

Have a nice week, hang in there it’s Friday soooooon! And I pinky-promise, you’ll receive more regular updates. 😀

First blog post

Hello world!

You are here to witness my very first blog post! Some of you (well,.. those of you who know me in person) might wonder where my promised vlogs are, but I have decided to kick off my “internet career” by writing blogs. (Still trying to figure out how to Internet properly.) I am now spending my exchange semester is Lisbon, Portugal until the beginning of the year 2017, so this will hopefully bring along some exciting stories that I want to share with my audience.

Firstly, all you need to know about me and my blogs is that I am an open-minded person who is welcoming everyone and everything with and optimistic attitude. So far, my plans for my posts are to give everyone (who is willing to) the opportunity to take part in my daily adventures, even so they sometimes might not seem like the most exciting life. (Sorry, I don’t own a private jet yet.) So, if even there is only a single person out there who is entertained by what I say (or write), I will gladly go on with what I am doing. (Right now, I have no idea what I am doing.)

Let’s remember this moment as something undefinable and be curious about how it will develop in the near future. (Again, I don’t know what this will turn out to be. 😄)
