And again a year has passed... I don't know, but am I the only one who thinks that time goes faster and faster? For me, 2013 has been a wonderful year! So many good memories... 2013 also was a year full of travelling. I think I've never travelled so often as in the last few months. Probably you've seen some of the following pictures before, as I have uploaded some of them already. But there are also some new ones I want to share with you. I hope you enjoy reading the post and looking at the pictures!
Well, some of you might have recognized the place - it's Dublin! I went there in May with my class for a stay abroad. We had so much fun and I really could improve my English skills. Although Dublin's weather and me probably never will be friends, I enjoyed staying there. There are so many things to do in this wonderful city! Shopping, sightseeing, drinking a Guinness in one of the pubs, just hanging around - the city is really worth a visit!
Then, in my summer holidays, I went to Poland. We've got some friends there, they live near Cracow. If I say it was the time of my life, I really mean it! I had never thought that I could have so much fun there! The Polish people are the nicest in the world. They would give you everything they have! Although I do not speak any word of Polish, I could talk to them in English and we understood each other very well. Cracow is such a beautiful city! I know, it's not the place where you usually think of spending your holidays, but I really don't know why this is the case... Because I will definitely go there again as soon as possible!
Just a few weeks later I went to Berlin with two of my friends. I love this city! On the one hand, it is very fashionable and modern, but on the other hand it is full of history. This year I visited lots of places which have something to do with German National Socialism and Hitler. First, I went to Auschwitz (in Poland), which was very sad to see. Then, for those, who've never been to Berlin, there are lots of memorials and other things which have something to do with World War II. And in November we went to Dachau (near Munich) with school, to see the Concentration Camp there. You probably think right now "why is she telling us all these things?". But I just think that people need to know the whole stuff about what happened during the Second World War, so that it won't happen again.
Well, but let's move on to a happier subject: sun, sea and beach. As summer passed too fast, I needed to have it back, at least for a few days. I went to Italy (Isola d'Elba) with my family. It was so nice being there! Warm temperatures again (although I was afraid of having a bath in the sea because there were jellyfish), tanning (well, not in my case :D) and just spending the time hanging around. The most weird thing happened when we drove home: we had to pass the Gotthard tunnel, and as we got by, there was lying snow on the ground! In the morning we had had nice summer temperatures and in the evening we saw snow! I was quite reliefed by the fact that a week later I could go to Barcelona to escape the cold weather again.
Yes, and then I went to Barcelona with one of my best friends. We had an awesome time there, really! Actually we did not see lots of things (as we had other priorities), but we had so much fun there! Of course we wanted to go shopping, but we had a big problem: just one suitcase for both of us. But we were so proud that we finally managed to take all the things with us (and we bought a lot)! Then, on another day, we were just realaxing at the beach (la Barcelonetta). It was very warm and we actually could have a bath in the sea (in October). Afterwards we were freezing but that was worth it! And, of course, we also went out in the evening. It was so much fun to go to the clubs there and stay awake until the sunrise. We were so sad when we had to leave this beautiful place again!
Well, this was my 2013... A great year full of fun, pleasure, travelling, hanging out with friends,... I am so thankful for the fantastic time I spent with all the people I love! We had so much fun all the time, it's impossible to mention all the moments which made me laugh so much and will stay in my mind forever (quite kitschy I know). Especially summer time was incredible!
Honestly, I'm quite curious about what 2014 will bring for me. In half a year I will be starting something completely new, as I will have finished school then. Hope it will turn out great! But if 2014 is going to be just half as nice as 2013, I will have a good year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)
