Jamie, one of my oldest friends in the world, along with some friends started a new band project about a year or so ago. TA DA:
Badkatt and the Wolf
Needless to say that I like what they are doing haha Cannot recommend them highly enough. If you're anywhere around London, please check out where they're playing and support them.
Here is their myspace, webpage or go and like them on facebook!

camping madness

Right I owe a little pics and fun from our holiday last week!
Have you ever been camping? It's the best idea before you go, holds true every time and once you're there you're like "why the hell are we wasting our holiday on this". haha Don't get me wrong it's the funnest time you will ever experience and it will definitely be one you will never forget.
It started out terrible as it wouldn't stop raining the first day but got better and better. Ended up being sunny and 30C!!
My tummy was still aching from laughing so hard when we were driving home. Nobody will believe the things we did so we'll let photos speak for themselves:
Love the craziness that ensues with all this camping stuff and wouldn't miss it in the world. No matter how tired you are when you get home after your "holiday" haha
I do have the bestest people around me! Here's to more holidays - camping or other xx

holiday sneak peak

I am beyond tired... take advice everyone: if you only have a week of holidays, do not go camping. As much fun as it is, you'll return more tired than before :) I need a holiday from my holidays haha
We had tons of fun and were laughing so much my tummy still hurts! Love spending time with my friends!!
I do love this photo, not only because it's the only group photo we have, but also because after we took this shot we went rafting on the river (a 4 hour trip turned out to be 6.5hrs!!!) and the waterproof ton we got, did not turn out waterproof at all.
RIP Nikon coolpix 885 - 9 long years we had fun together, I will miss you x

favourite photo this month

Another garden goodie or actually I think that one's from our balcony :)

garden goodness

As many know I'm allergic to all sorts of things and therefore am only eating certain things at the moment. Had to cut out fruit for two weeks which nearly killed me, but can eat low sugar fruit like apples, blueberries and raspberries.
Check out what grows in the garden behind our house:
Freshly picked, juicy and oh the flavour... Kicks store-bought fruit in the butt every single time!!! Feel spoilt to live in this house. God is amazing!

and off we go

I am packing!!!
What on earth do you take on a camping trip when all of a sudden it's only 15C and the sun wont come out. There is still hope that it will be sunny and gorgeous when we get there but that means even more stuff in my bag(s) haha.
Can't wait to get out though. Love nature and my friends, it will be an epic week come rain or sunshine :) More later, I'm off... yay

look what my friends are up to or HELP

My friend Margit has been working with refugees since 2003 now. Her team does an amazing job and she's a world changer and champion. Her project "Tobias" is up for funding from one of Austria's banks if they reach number one in an online vote.
Please take a second and help us get them the money... All you have to do is click on this link and click underneath Tobias where it says "Abstimmen" (vote). Every help appreciated!!

riding bikes to go see Jo and baby Liah

Sunday started off with church - Tom brought an awesome word. Nothing more powerful than truth...
Anyway, as Ruth and Ian are big cyclers we had planned to take the bikes out and after deciding where to go we made our way through the vinyards into Baden to visit Jo and Reini and their little daughter. More coffee and cake and ice cream followed :)
And than we cycled home...

what happens when your besties get together for a weekend...

The whole crew took off and went to Vienna Friday afternoon.
Even before we took off it took a turn of the ridiculous when Simon asked if we had beer for the journey!!! So after packing five people into an old old Golf we took off, just to hear about 20 min later "I need to go to the bathroom".  Oh my word! You think you've all gotten older but nothing ever changes haha I love it.
Jetty's band had a gig that night which went well, and after we went to look for a "Wuerstelstand" to fill our starving bodies. Turns out that beer alone doesn't cut it :) Sausages at 2am is the Austrian way of fast food... nothing tastes better at that time!

Saturday saw a massive breakfast with everyone.
If there was a breakfast championship, I might dare to say we would beat the world!!
Our whole day consisted of going from one place to the next to eat!
Breakfast was followed by a walk to an ice cream place followed by coffee at Berni & Claudia's place which was followed by a trip to the Heurigen to meet more people and eat more food.
While everyone else was stuffing their faces or tummies more likely, I was detoxing and enjoying the people. Detox sucks sometimes!!

old friends are like family

they're crazy and get them round the table and there will be a lot of talking, heated discussions, arguments and so much laughing till tears will roll down your cheeks.
Love them all and miss the ones that aren't here... but thank God that there is skype :)

I love my city

Take a look at this and tell me it's not worth it cycling/driving/running past this scene all the time!!!
Breathtaking right!!

time flies

Can anyone believe that it is August already?
I feel like this year just started and all of a sudden we have been in the second half of it for a couple weeks! How did that happen?
