Maastricht


The water has not always been deep blue tinted by the clear, bright, cloud-free sky, and the MAAS RIVERSIDE has not always been blessed with a golden shine. I still see myself running over the bridge over there, rushing to uni classes, be it on a sunny, windy, rainy or snowy day. Bridging over the past 4 years of student life in this city took me indeed through some stormy instances and lifeless phases as well, but all in all, it has amounted to a lovely, satisfying picture.

Some familiar stops on my routine path to uni...

Never realized that the MOSAE FORUM can look so pretty in the sunset.

The statue you see in here is called "THE TRAVELLER" - and it's non-stop on fire.

THE MARKET. I'm not very happy with this photo, because I was not prepared for this shot at all. First, I simply wanted to make a shot of the building only, but then the crowd of birds suddenly flew by and I found it even prettier to have them in the photo. However, it happened so fast that I couldn't take enough care of everything in the photo, and it now looks as if it's cut at the bottom =/ Too bad they didn't fly by like this a second time either... seems that photography needs some luck too...

  10. If my route to university were that scenic, then I'm convinced that I probably wouldn't make it to any of my lectures haha, these are amazing photos. Postcard perfect, I especially love The Market shot, you did a really good job if I say so myself! Those birds give the photo more life :-)

  24. Ach ich hoffe, dass ich das auch ohne meine Eltern schaffe. Ich hab schon ein bisschen Angst. Meine Verwandte können ja hauptsächlich nur Thai, waaah. Hoffentlich stell ich mich nicht so dumm an, haha. Aber du hast Recht man muss sich einfach nur an das Sprechen gewöhnen und der Rest kommt von alleine, weil er irgendwo in einem Selbst schlummert so ganz unaktiviert. :D

    Ja, meine Freundin ist auch halb Koreanerin und halb Deutsche und die sieht auch asiatischer aus als ich. Alles sehen asiatischer aus als ich, ahahah. xD
    Aber da kann man nichts machen. Haha.

    Ohja, meine Schwiegermama hatte ja mal vorgeschlagen, dass ich statt mein Visum für Thailand zu beantragen einfach mal ein paar Tage nach Singapur fliegen sollte. Das wär so cool, ich war da noch nie und ich hab auch nur gutes gehört. Ach, es gibt so viele Länder, die mich interessieren würde. Es gibt einfach soooo viele interessante Kulturen. Alle leben sie dort auf dem Kontinent, aber das Spektrum an Kulturen und Lebensweisen ist doch reich.

    Ach, du hast in den Niederlanden studiert? :-D
    Sind wirklich sehr schöne Fotos und Texte, ich finde auch, dass das letzte Bild mit den Vögeln sehr schön aussieht.


    Liebe Grüße. <3 :)

  41. Ja, das hast du richtig gesehen. Aber eher so ne einfache Version mit Mamanudeln. Haha, ich wollte aber demnächst wieder mal richtiges machen. :D
    Ich mach das eigentlich voll oft statt Suppe immer Phad Thai aus den Nudeln. Rezept hab ich auch auf dem Blog. Das Bild ist aus einem alten Post. xD <3

    Ohja, ich liebe das auch. Da ich jetzt nicht mehr zu Hause wohne muss ich immer selber kochen und probier nach und nach immer Rezepte aus. Leider sind sie Sachen nicht immer so gut wie die von Mama, haha.<3

    Uff, hast da in der Zeit wohl nach an der Grenze gewohnt, wa? Da hattest du sicher immer ne Stunde oder halbe Stunde Fahrt, oder? :/

    Liebe Grüße zurück. ♥
