Je t’aime paris – My trip to Paris

 

Hello everyone! 🙂

I recently got back from Paris and it is safe to say that I fell in love with this city. Paris owns my heart and I would definitely go back! To see more pictures, visit my Instagram and check them out as well as my Story Highlight —> ivvkr

But first I would like to share my very own Paris experience.

Recommendations

Public Transport
If you are in Paris or planning to visit this wonderful city, I would highly recommend you to use the public transport. This is the best way to get to know the vibe of this city and feel like a real Parisian. In addition to this, you can easily reach the sightseeing spots by public transport and it is, of course, cheaper like this. One ticket for the subway e.g. costs approximately € 1,70, which is a fair price.

Food, drinks etc.
When people think of Paris they probably think of cheese, baguettes, croissants and so on…And I have to agree, the food in Paris great. A nice idea would be to visit a local supermarket and buy some cheese, fruits, and wine and just enjoy a picnic in front of the Eiffel tower or at the Pont Alexandre III. If you wanna visit a Restaurant you can find plenty of them near the Eiffel tower or you download the TripAdvisor App and check some Restaurants near you.

Louvre

So, now one of my personal highlights in Paris. I have to admit this Museum impressed me a lot. It is the best Museum I have visited so far. It offers a wide ranch of paintings (215 works), Sculptures (83 works), Egyptian Antiquities (207 works) and many more. I am a huge fan of different cultures and history and I literally spent the whole day in this Museum to cover all departments. I bought my Ticket online on getyourguide.at for approximately 17,-, and I highly recommend to book your Tickets for different activities before your trip.

Palais de Versailles

When I planned my Paris trip, the Palace of Versailles was already on my list. I really wanted to see this incredible Palace in real life and I am so glad I did. To come to the Palace you need to take a bus for approximately half an hour because the Palace is not located in Paris, it is located in the neighbouring city called Versailles. But first some Information. The Palace of Versailles is one of Europes biggest Palaces and was the main residence of the Royal Family until the French revolution took place from 1789 on. Moreover, the Palace is marvellous and a must see when in Versailles.

Disneyland Paris

Last but not least, my childhood dream. Since I can think I always wanted to visit Disneyland in Paris. My first reaction to it was that I felt like a little kid again, I was surrounded by little girls wearing their favourite princess dress. The park is really incredible, I was overwhelmed by all the colours and impressions. If you plan on going to Disneyland you should definitely stay until midnight. The midnight show was an experience I could never forget. I just have to say that Disneyland is not only for children. It is an experience for the young and old and definitely worth it.

5 Tips on how to be a successful student

School has started and everyone around me seems kind of motivated just like I am. To be honest, I cannot wait to start studying again and of course, I wanna be a great student and have my stuff together. But how do you keep yourself motivated? And what tips are useful? Here are some tips, which are easy to remember and will help you get through the semester and stay focused.

  1. Get organized
    Use a calendar to write down important due dates and check it daily before and after class, you can also use a diary or a little organizer where you write yourself a to-do list for the day or week. However, if you prefer to have a digital calendar or an organizer, you can download an app called Trello on your laptop or any other organizing app you can find in the app store or Google play store.
  2. Sit in the front row
    Now I know this might not work everytime you will be in class but even if it is the second or third row it will have a positive impact on your grades. Sitting in the front row during class can increase your motivation and you won’t get distracted so easily. I know that not every student enjoys sitting in the front row in the lecture room but just give it a try and see how it works for you during the course of the semester.
  3. Study groups
    If you struggle with one subject, create a study group with your friends! It can help you a lot. Whether it is maths, history etc. There are a lot of benefits in a study group, you can prepare for the big test by asking each other questions, reviewing important materials together and solving difficulties together.
  4. Keep your notes sorted in different binders and colors
    Buy yourself different binders for different classes and keep them all in order. It is much easier to collect and organize your notes you make during class in this way.
  5. Ask questions
    You are in school to learn, therefore don’t be afraid to ask questions if you don’t understand something in class. In the end, it is always better to ask and understand the case than to sit at home and not having a clue on how to do your homework.

I hope these tips will help you survive the school year or semester and I wish you all a nice start to the new school year. 🙂

One Week sailing through Croatia

Hello everyone and welcome back!

Today, the experience I had on my first ever Sailing Tour through Croatia.

First of all, I have to say that Croatia is a beautiful country with a lot of personalities and interesting history behind the old towns.

Dubrovnik

This is for all the „Games of Thrones“ fans! Dubrovnik is an incredibly beautiful city. The old town is filled with traditional restaurants, which offer tasty and fresh fish and seafood. It is safe to say that Croatia is like heaven to all the seafood lovers out there. In Dubrovnik, you should definitely go up the stairs to the castle. Up there you can play basketball with a fascinating view over the city. Dubrovnik is definitely an incredible city with a lot of nice restaurants, bars and of course a wonderful location to take nice pictures. I would visit this city one more time and stay a little longer.

Croatian Islands

So now I would like to introduce these cute little islands to you. On this Sail, I have visited quite a lot of Islands, which I didn’t even know about. The first island I would like to introduce is a small island named Hvar. This island has something magical in it. The beaches are wonderful and the old town is just breathtaking.

Mljet National Park

A nice bicycle ride in a National Park sounds great am I right? Sure, especially if you can have a refreshing swim stop in-between. Welcome to Mljet National Park, where the lake is blue and the nature just marvelous.

Split

Split is certainly worth the visit for its incredible old town and beautiful beaches. The historical city should be on your travel list, especially the Palace of Roman Emperor Diocletian. The beautiful old town with traditional restaurants in their tiny side streets. Whether you like traditional Croatian food or Mexican dish, there is something for everyone in Split.
