Weekend Reads #92

Saturday, November 18, 2017

Hello dear friends! As you ready to have an awesome weekend? (I suppose I'm talking to the majority who just got up; my weekend is half-way through!) And yes, of course that an awesome weekend can consist of #netflixandchill, what else? :) Though I must admit I still have not fully jumped on the Netflix bandwagon. I was recently talking to a dear friend and then spontaneously used the words "streaming service", which left her in shock because, as she put it, it's Netflix, it is something that hugs you at night and stays by your side when the world shatters, how can you say it's just a streaming service? :) Anyway, I'm watching Better Call Saul (after having devoured Breaking Bad) and I seriously want to go to New Mexico. But if you've been here a while, you know it's nothing new. I want to go everywhere. :) However, since you're not here today to read about my travel wish list, here are some weekend links for you to enjoy.

Three Months in New Zealand

Friday, November 17, 2017

I am sitting on a terrace, looking at a palm tree in the backyard. The sun is stroking my face. Actually, no, this is an understatement: the sun is aggressively burning my skin, at least that’s what I feel, even though I just applied sunscreen. My laptop keyboard has become hot in mere minutes, so each stroke feels like a little burn on the top of my fingers. And my typing is pretty fast. I even have that in writing. So, that's a lot of burning.

Today marks three months since I landed in Aotearoa, or New Zealand if you please.  

Weekend Reads #91

Saturday, November 4, 2017

Hi everyone! The leaf is for my readers from the Northern Hemisphere, who make the most of my readership anyway. No falling leaves here, though! But at least I got my hands at a book. I finally borrowed a Kindle, since I've been having issues with ordering a battery online throughout this whole year, basically. I'm currently reading The Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk. I saw the movie three years ago, so I'm missing out on the great plot twist. Hah, I wish I could see my own face back then! Did you watch it? (Hope you did so you understand what I'm talking about. If not, do so!) Anyway, here's my choice of this week's links, and I hope you'll like some of them. Have a great weekend!

Weekend Reads #90

Friday, October 27, 2017

Hello! How is everyone doing? What are you up to this weekend? We're having a cloudy and rainy one—who would have thought it's spring. I just recently told a friend from back home how much the weather changes every day, and he was like "oh... I thought it was the land of eternal spring". Well, it depends on the spring you're used to, and this is not mine! On the bright side though, I landed a weekend job after a search that took ages, and I'm hoping to get a week job soon as well! A girl needs her dollars, right. Anyway, here are the links I liked this week. Oh, and make sure to check out my piece on free things to do in Berlin, a guest post I did for the lovely Melissa from A Broken Backpack.

Weekend Reads #89

Saturday, October 21, 2017

I have never experienced weather moodier than the one we have in New Zealand. Which is the reason I have no idea how to dress properly here; and by properly I only mean in a way that feels good and is not too cold nor too hot. Impossible! Also, have you ever got a sunburn through your clothes? Why, you didn't think it could happen? It can, and I had the misfortune to witness it firsthand. How do people even live here? By the way, it is SO WEIRD that we're in the second half of October and all I keep hearing is "summer is coming". 

Okay, maybe this was too much weather talk? :) What are you up to this weekend? We're having a long one, as it's Labor day on Monday. I'd love it if it were warmer so I could finally walk to the beach. I literally see the ocean when I get outside of the house, but being born and raised in a plain, I'm hesitant to walk that much uphill. (I know sea is downhill, duhh. But this is New Zealand, subjective feeling: everything is uphill.) Anyway, here are some links for you to explore.

Berlin Guide For Newbies

Thursday, October 19, 2017

I always hated how some bloggers sound pretentious starting their blog posts with “everybody asked me to write about (some random topic), so finally here it is”. That’s why I was super hesitant to start in the same manner; but I can list at least several people who did ask me to post a detailed Berlin guide they could pass on to their friends traveling to the city. So okay, it wasn’t “everybody”, but it still made me feel so humble at times. And so—here it is. (Self-cringe!)

Weekend Reads #88

Saturday, October 14, 2017

Hello lovely people. How's everything? I hope you have a good weekend. By the way, I'm toying with the idea of not doing the Weekend Reads anymore. It's not anything final, just an idea. They might transform or something. Any guidelines from you? Anyway, here are the links for this weekend.

Weekend Reads #87

Saturday, September 30, 2017

Hello lovely people! I am still going through the interesting-reads-slump, but I'm getting back there. On the road to there, at least! On the other hand, I did create instead, and my post on what you should do if you're a first-time visitor to London is something I'm really proud of, so check it out if you haven't. Oh, and it's really beginning to feel like spring, which is weird. September is meant to be fall. And have a great weekend!

The Ultimate Guide For First-Time Visitors To London

Sunday, September 24, 2017

The best thing about having a wandering soul is the wandering part.
The worst thing about having a wandering soul is that you’re never 100% happy where you are.
Take me, for example. 
I’ll always be at least 10% happier when in London.

Weekend Reads #86

Saturday, September 16, 2017

I'm taking advantage of the time difference and writing this post on a Saturday afternoon, knowing that the majority of my audience is in Europe and America. 🙈 My overall feeling about Weekend Reads, that I mentioned last week, is still present, but it may be due to my taste becoming more refined? Who knows. Have a great weekend! (Or what's left of it, in case you live closer to me.)
