Pictures from Vienna


I spend a lot of time in McCafés. This particular cake caused an allergic reaction though :(


Book I've read for my history course this week. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in German/Austrian/European 20th century history.


Pierce Brosnan advertising Spar...?


Mini Nivea cream dispenser in the toilets at uni. Didn't work :(


Cheating on McCafé with Starbucks. Which is really expensive here but I fancied a chai latté. The work is a presentation I gave about London in my French speaking class. It went down well :)


There is an incredible Pakistani restauant near uni where it's all you can eat curry and dessert, then you pay what you want! Amazing. The food is so good too!


Full-on supermarket on campus. Even though there's no accomodation there as far as I know. Bizarre, but good for cheap snacks in-between lectures. There is also a wine bar, driving school and beer hall. Very odd.


Letter I received from lovely Laura.


Tried making one of those microwave cake-in-a-mug things. It was disgusting. Next time I'll be less lazy and walk the 2 minutes to Spar to satisfy my sugar cravings.

  1. Looks like a lovely excursion! I know what you mean about allergic reactions though! I adore hot chocolates, but they always make my tummy so weird!

  3. Oh it looks really interesting! And lol at that Spar advert, it looks a bit photoshopped in my opinion...
    nivea hand cream dispensers, we have condom dispensers in my school but I think they should have sanitary towel ones! sorry if that's a bit gross :P xx

  4. You pay what you want?! Within reason I guess? haha. I was SO impressed with the McCafes in europe. Seriously wish they took a bit more pride in the McDonalds chain over here :( No wonder you don't get starbucks too often, the euro prices really did make me gasp xx

  5. Pakistani restaurant sounds amazing, the food looks delicious. German Starbucks was such a menace- Chai Latte temptation right next door to uni, 3 times the price of coffee from any other cafe.

  6. Oh my, so many things to say, such an interesting/random selection of photos!
    Pierce Brosnan advertising Spar is hilarious. But hey, everyone's got to pay the kids' school fees right??!
    That uni looks very bizarre. Oh well, I'd be happy to have a supermarket on campus, I'd be in there every day buying massive bars of Milka Triolade! Have you had some? It's my favourite chocolate ever, and I always gorge myself silly when I can get my hands on it on holiday!

  7. Ahh such fabulous photos.

    Most of what I bought in Austria came from a spar...namely Milka chocolate though!

  8. that book looks really good... is it factual? there are so many restaurants in germany / austria that do that deal "pay what you think its worth" - such a fab concept. you wouldn't get that in the UK! i make the cake in the mug all the time but always regret it.. mainly due to the washing up afterwards cos mine ALWAYS sticks to and therefore DESTROYS any cup I use...

  9. I love posts like this! I am surprised that the Mccafes use such good teabags! They look like proper big tea leaves. And the cakes looks delicious too - shame about the reaction :(

  13. This post made me so hungry! I love cafe hopping too--although I am not nearly as productive when working in cafes as I think I'll be!
