Perfectly matching today's mood in Germany - it's been raining for three days now, how wonderful the weather in this country is! I'm considering more and more moving to the Seychelles soon to escape the German cold. At least I have enough time to surprise you with more fabulous photos of Manhattan, where it also rains once in a while.
Furthermore I'm getting my stuff together for school, the university applications are close and I have to decide where and what (!) I really want to study. For now, breathe in some New Yorker air!

Hey there, you already had the pleasure to meet my wonderful elder sister Nina on my blog but have you ever seen my younger one? I guess not, maybe that's because I haven't seen her in two years! Yep, there's three of us - unbelievable, 24 months in New York without the little one! Two years later we're all a little older, all a little wiser, all a little more grown-up, with the youngest one being the tallest now.
Well, now that I'm back in Germany my family's reunited again (at least for a while) until we all decide to leave the super exciting little village we live in once for all. I wanna see so much more of this world, travel to every single continent and discover as many different cultures as possible cause you know... once you have seen a different world you always long for more adventures!

Dear readers, lately I've been thinking a lot about getting an instagram account to promote my blog a little more. I haven't created it yet because first of all I'm missing a smartphone and second, I feel like there are millions of my pictures on the internet already so I don't really feel the need to attack you with more photos. In addition to that I'm not the biggest fan of social media - I have less than 200 friends on facebook (and know all of them personally!) and don't even use twitter, instagram and Co. I don't really see much sense in having 1.600 friends plus on facebook, people easily cherish the illusion of being super important or having a magnificent social life which is most often not the case. Having an enormous amount of "fake" friends doesn't make you a VIP, neither do these people know your real personality nor show any interest in helping you out with severe problems. Anyway, a lot of people are really into getting thousands of "likes", I've seen so many browsing through instagram on their iPhones liking one instagram pic after the other, no matter how ugly the person on the picture or how bad the photo's quality is... what for?!?
Guys, I know instagram would be a great option to keep you posted on my daily life, that way you wouldn't have to wait for me to come up with new posts on my blog. However, I already created a facebook fan page for that, where I post more pictures than on my blog.
So what do you think? Do you wanna see more of my seemingly exciting life or are you already fed up with my New York City adventures? Would love to get some feedback!
For now, you get to see some pics of my "German lifestyle", I feel like there's been going on a lot of stuff since I got back to my home country, for example a TYGA concert, a motorcycle race, and a trip to my best friend's place. Here we go, say cheese, you're on instagram! #hatesocialmedia

Dear readers, my sister and I just called a hotline trying to win a trip to the Caribbean that we saw on tv... this is how bored we are in Germany sometimes :-D Surprise, it didn't work out (not even after the third time) so I guess we have to stay here for a bit. At least it gives me some time to work on my blog, I know you love to hear about our New York City adventures!
The pictures you see here were taken on a quite rainy day, guess my drenched sister was pretty annoyed after shooting for over an hour in the rain. We still had so much fun though and I dearly miss the fabulous times we had in New York. That day I decided to take a couple pictures of my sister's beautiful neighborhood on Long Island. One amazing mansion after the other and such relaxing beaches, who doesn't dream of living in a place like that?

Welcome to the United States of America - the stars and stripes, the melting pot, the land of liberty... it's up to you how you call these fifty magnificent states but I'm pretty sure we all agree, they are fabulous! There's an indefinite number of things to see in the USA, so many different landscapes, cultures and people! Before I came to New York over two years ago I didn't expect much, I planned to take advantage of my time in the US but I never anticipated this!
After two years I've been to nine states myself visiting all the famous and most diverse cities, each one of them being a dream come true. I traveled to Nevada, California, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida and many more, to broaden my horizons and see all different parts of the country. And there are still a lot more I have to visit!
The first state I've been to was New York of course, my beloved home... the last one was New Jersey, an unforgettable trip to Atlantic City. In between I spent a couple relaxing weeks in sunny California - Los Angeles and San Diego are both insanely beautiful and laid-back. I took a weekend trip to Vegas, spent a week in Florida's enchanting Disney World, educated myself while visiting one cultural metropolis after the other such as Washington D.C., Boston and Philadelphia, chilled at the Jersey Shore, and had an extremely splendid time in Miami and Chicago.
Now that I'm writing this post I realize how much I have really seen while living in the United States, how exciting my life became and how enriching all these experiences were, memories no one could ever take away... the United States of America, where wonderland is your destiny!
