When Our Trip Became Political In Vienna, Austria

I want to share all of the sides we saw in Vienna, Austria. Also, the maybe a little bit darker ones. While we were walking, en route to the Albertina statue, we stumbled upon a demonstration. I asked a police officer what was going on and he explained that the group on the left was demonstrating for a family consistent of man, woman and kids, while the group on the right was more demonstrating against them. This group had signs made that anyone can form a family, so also of course gay people. No need to explain I think on which side we stood with.

I took pictures of the people who were protesting and they were happy to show me their signs, and I took some pictures of police officers, who were photographing for themselves as well.

Note that this was a non violent protest from both sides and that the police officers were there, just in case.

More love, less hate.

After I took this shot, the officer with the colored glassed said "Fraulein." as a warning. Haha!

Guys, watching the demonstration.

Albertan against the beautiful sunlight, it was so warm there!

July Read: Eat Pray Love

Finally started reading Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert! And I say finally not because the book has been on my shelf for a long time, but because I've seen the movie many many times. It's about time. My stepmom bought the book secondhand, read it and gave it to me. So far I like it very much. Some parts and even sentences are exactly the same as the movie which I almost know by heart. Hope that won't bother me throughout the book.

I started reading a different book earlier this month but I don't think I liked it so much, or else I would have picked it up more. And because I will leave for Morocco in a couple of days, I thought this would be the most suitable summer traveling read!

Since I met the actual Ketut Liyer and his son in Indonesia last year (and visited Rome twice), I have a special bond with the movie. I mean, because of the movie I got a hand reading session by Ketut's son. Ketut himself was too old, but he hold my hand, laughed and we took some pictures. Lovely people!

I finishend The Girl On The Train in just a few short weeks. Wow, what an exciting book! I would absolutely recommend this to any woman and actually gave it to my stepmom who already finished it as well! Love talking about books with her on the phone. :)

Have you seen and/or read Eat Pray Love?
