Travelling is something I think every heart desires. It's something that I love and try to do as much as possible. I know for most people travelling can be challenging,whether it's because of your job, family or pets etc but especially then people tend to get really excited for their holidays. There is something really relaxing just thinking about going on holiday. Holiday is always us imaging a sandy beach with warm weather and blue water when in fact only some holidays look like this.
Just to be clear I want to talk about holiday travelling and just some feelings I have and some tricks I learned over the years. So enjoy ;)

Me growing up I always was and still am a really lucky girl to be able to travel to so many different places and visit so much different countries. Some of my friends don't get this oppertunity that often so I was always greatful to expirence so much .
Travelling tough can also be challenging when you cannot plan everything and can sometimes be stressfull. One thing I realized looking back on old memories I can tell is to let loose and sometimes just expirience a city. You will never know what comes next and there are only a very few things you will regret doing. Enjoy. Holidays should be fun and I hope there is no one out there stressing out on every single holiday because this is the time you want to take off. Holidays are times to relax and get a free mind, breath and let go of your daily working routine.
 One of the main "problems" are phones and laptops etc. I love being on the internet and social media and I am not the only one. If you want to get some really good relaxed time then you should either turn out all your electronic devices or (this is actually my favourite option) go for a long swim or hike. These are the things which are good for your mind, body and soul. You could take your phone on a hike but why should you ?
The thing with swimming is quite obvious if you have a regular Iphone or something else not waterproof ...
I will actually be on holiday in Austria right when I'll upload this post and will go swimming in the hotel pool and go hiking and get some time off. I might be able to share some pictures with you because going on a hike your phone is not really necessary but cameras are always a nice option to just take beautiful pictures.

Hope you enjoyed and for the next time I want to include some pictures into my posts so you can all visualize a bit what I have in mind whilst writing.

Madeira - Holiday experience

Hello everyone
I should have posted another two blogposts the week before and two weeks earlyier too, but I was busy with organising my room and planning everything before school starts. Where I live school starts pretty early so I had much stuff to do before that. But lets get back into the topic and not all my excuses.
I went to Madeira almost two weeks ago (23.07 - 30.07) and really did enjoy my trip. The weather was nice but sometimes also a bit too hot so I decided to spent my days most likely in the pool. I got a crazy suntan even tough I was in the pool most of the time. On two days me and my mom went out of our hotel and one day we went into the city and did way to much shopping but also visited the Botanical garden and the House of Orchids(I wouldn`t recommed going there if your hotel is really nice(;). The Botanical Garden was big and confusing and it all seemed so untended... The House of Orchids was nice but really small. We paid 5 Euro to be there for maximum 20 Minutes and went out and bought some Orchids. Both of these gardens are not nessesarily the go to expirience but you can anctually take good Pictures in the Orchid House. Like I said the weather was quite nice but I am not the one who loves hot places and prefers the cold ;) So it was too hot for me....The next day we went to a boat which was built like the ship Columbus saild to Amerika with. The boat trip was amazing. I have to say that there are two rides: one in the late morning and one in the late afternoon. The one in the late moning was nice for me because it wasn`t too hot. But when we started to sail back to the Harbour I felt, that it got hotter and hotter on the boat so that is the bad thing about the late evening tour:the hot temperatur. BUT there is one pretty special thing about the evening tour that isn`t most likely to happen in the morning: seeing turtles and some dolphins. If you somehow strangely decide to go to Madeira you have to visit the Santa Maria de Colombo . It`s a nice option to just laying at or in the Pool and the boat stops and you can actually swim in the water:)
Another thing you could actually to is take the cable car. I liked it because the vegetation was huge but it was so untended ... all the houses there too. It was sad seeing this beautiful place looking so bad. But what can I do .....
Going on to the hotel: The Hotel we stayed in was nice it was near the Ozean and when you stayed in the pool you were able to see the Ozean too which was amzing. All the People and the waiters were really nice and extremly friendly. The rooms looked nice and especially our room which had a balcony that was huge and from there you were able to see the Ozean. It was pretty cool there;)
But there actually is one thing I didn`t like: Food. I might seem picky right now but I am just vegetarian and this was not fun... I do eat fish but no meat and the fish didn`t look good on most of the days and even if it did I didn`t know what this actually was, because they didn`t put up a card you could rely on(there were cards but when they change the food the cards stayed the same and I was not able to rely on those cards)..You can maybe imagine how much fun it was eating only rize and Pasta. One day they had a big grill outside and you could go there and take how much meat you ever want. On that day the fish was looking not that good either and I had no other option than to eat pure Rice (there wasn`t even any Sauce with it). At that piont I asked myself: We are here on an Island somewhere in the Ozean. How difficult could it be to put some frish fish on the grill? Do you now understand my point?....One could hope for more when it`s a five star rated hotel.
I talked way to much about the food ...I did like the hotel itself and could all in all enjoy the hotel and our stayin Madeira :)
The hotels Name was "Melia Madeira Mare" for those who are wondering:)
Have a nice week and lots of love
Valerie ;)

Hello my name is Valerie

Like you probably see from the Headline this is a short introduction. I want to tell you a bit about me before I start writing other posts.
I won`t tell you my age because that might distract you but some other things about me. I go to school still and so I might be having no time to write as much as I want to. I was born in Russian and live now in Germany.
I speak German, Russian, English and I am learning Spanish at the moment. I have far to many hobbies to name them here but I will tell you some of them: I love singing and playing the Cello. Cooking and baking are great activities for me to relax as well as reading. Continuing with the aspect of reading, I have a Youtube channel where I talk about books (in German) and I write a blog about books(also in German) with a dear friend.
You will have a new Blogpost every Saturday morning until 11.30 am ;)
If you have questions about me as person then feel free to comment and I will try to reply.

Der Valerie
