red and wooden






 Cardi - Mama's old
Top - 2nd hand
Skirt - Primark
Over-knee socks - H&M
Necklace - Gift from godmother


 My last post from Austria! And this was actually my last day in Austria. And as I was sitting on a train for a fair amount of the day, I wasn't wearing as much clothes as I did on most days.. Anyway,  I've had this necklace for years but I reckon this's the first time I've actually worn it. It is literally only a piece of wood, but I really love it and how smooth&soft it feels. Even more so as I've gotten it from my godmother. (My godmothers always give me nice things😊) 

Something I don't think has been mentioned before is that while travelling, I couchsurfed. I.e. literally surfed strangers' couches. It may sound a bit strange (or even dangerous, especially if you're a female travelling alone..) but I really had a nice time with all of my hosts. This also explains the cat in the background. I hadn't even realized how much I miss just having a cat and truly had a wonderful time petting these two. If one wants to actually experience a foreign culture instead of only sightseeing and being a tourist, I'd really recommend trying couchsurfing.

Never heard of this way of travelling… Nice to hear how good the experience was - I'd probably be a little bit scared or cautious… :)

Couch surfing is a great idea, I'm glad you've had a good experience with it, you're a brave lady to do it alone!

I joined the site when I moved to France but I never did it. I did meet up with some people I met on the internet though and stay at their houses/apartments and they stayed at mine.

Marlen - ah yes, and it really does make travelling cheaper! that is exactly the first question i asked, haha.. you should try to find a host who's had good reviews and maybe stick with female/pair hosts if that makes you feel safer:-) i'd love to visit iceland and i hope you get to go&have the loveliest time, darling! xx
