If there is something the Spanish definitely know how to do it's food. Think of tapas, paella, patatas bravas... But my absolute favourite Spanish (actually Andalusian) dish is Gazpacho, a refreshing cold vegan tomato soup which is so easy and quick to make you will not want to make anything else anymore for the rest of the summer.

One last exam and I was officially done with my second semester and off visiting friends in England (yes, the Brexit was the No.-1-topic of discussion and yes, everything was cheap). I had an amazing week in Brighton and the English countryside, going on long walks, napping and watching old movies, baking shortbread and generally not doing a lot due to our end-of-the-year-exhaustion. And then I took the train to London, walked 18 km three days in a row, explored approx. every street in the city and had the best time.

A few weeks ago I had the incredible chance to photograph back- and frontstage at the ATELIER SHOW of the Amsterdam Fashion Institute. I cannot describe how much I enjoyed this, running around between the people, capturing these moments of excitement and fear, curiousness and tension, observing all the people rushing around getting ready for the show. I can finally show you my favourite photos, and yes, it's a lot. Photographing real models is super fun, and backstage even more.

Being part of the Art Committee at my uni we spent the last months organising Scopophilia, our arts festival, which took place in the beautiful garden of Tolhuistuin in Amsterdam Noord. Working on the event was an incredibly intense experience and even though there were quite a few ups and downs (and maybe more downs than ups), all the work definitely paid off in the end.

I think it's not necessary to tell you over and over again how much I liked Lisbon and what an amazing city it is and so on and so on. Just one thing: go go go, visit it, have a great time, safe a lot of money because it's cheap (I'm speaking of 10€ for a pretty good hostel bed and 9 for a perfect three-course-menu), it's laid-back, it's young and creative, and beautiful and busy and not too big but big enough. And so close to Europe's most beautiful beaches. And after booking your flights takes notes and follow this little guide around one of my favourite cities.

Portugal is already some weeks ago and every day I planned on posting about our journey and every day I just ended up not finding a single free minute in which I was still able to think straight. For the past days I basically moved into the library and the rare few hours I got at home could only be spent watching some (very, very undemanding) TV series. It took me 3 days to edit some few photos, 2 more to format the post and now the only thing left is writing. I figured since this is what I have been doing for the whole day already anyways a few more minutes won't be the problem anymore so here we go: a loong post about our time in Lisbon, to make up for all those post-free weeks.

It's April and my last life update post was in January. What. How did this happen? I cannot believe how the past months have been rushing by: only two and a half more months and I am done with my first year at uni, a few more weeks until spring break and Portugal and definitely too little time until my statistics exam next week. Too little. But I've been planning to give a short life update for more than a week now and is there a better time to work something off your to do list when you really could use some time learning flashcards or trying to find out how to handle Excel?
