Murder on the Orient Express (movie)

Maybe you have already read about my story about Orient Express and you already know I was looking forward to the release of the movie this month. Well, you probably also know that whenever you make plans, life laughs in your face and then all the things you scheduled so neatly in you head never happen. Take this for an example – I was looking forward to going and seeing “Murder on the Orient Express” as soon as it came out, but of course being sick for two weeks and having pre-holidays deadlines prevented me from going to the cinema. So all of that meant that I can only see the movie the other day on one of the last projections. Still, I loved the film and I decided to share a brief review with you and try not to spoil it for you.

Christmas Cookies (and no, not gingerbread)

You may hate me for what I am about to say, but … gingerbread cookies are overrated. Few years ago when I was doing my Christmas baking I was really excited to make this recipe and guess what – in the end they turned out the same as the Spekulatius that you get in every other Billa. Of course you can imagine that I was incredibly disappointed, but last year I found another recipy that was incredbile and so delictous that I could not share it with you. As you can imagine I made it once again this year and I made a double batch since with my family the cookies are never enough.

Secret Vienna: Vienna Behind the Scenes Tour

After the tour at Zentralfriedhof, I was so impressed with what Secret Vienna has to offer, so once I got invited to another ramble around Vienna, I could not resist but join again. This time our walk was around the city center, revealing interesting hidden corners and lesser-known streets that I have always passed by, but never seemed to walk through. Let me tell you just this one thing, once you start living here, you go through the same paths every day and even if it is sad to admit it, with time you lose your adventurer’s spirit and occupied by your mundane daily routines, you forget to look past the tip of your nose. Therefore, thanks to this tour with Secret Vienna, the explorer’s spirit in me was once again awakened.
