Spontaneously busy ^^

Hello my lovely readers out there :)!

At first sorry to Michi and Jane B. for not answering your kind comments in my "little adventure" post, feeling so ashamed to answer now, so much time passed. 
to Michi: it was a beautiful sunset haha thank you! :-*
to Jane B.: wow thank you for your great compliment, it means a lot to me :-*
by the way I love your blogs! I will do an extra blogpost for you guys^^

I didn´t wrote much lately, but it wasn´t because of my lazyness or less motivation. No, so much happend in one month. I met new people, got to know people again, say goodbye and saw people I love again. 


Ok let´s start. My aunt and my uncle visited me from Laos. I saw her once in my life before. The first time I saw her was 10 years ago. I was very shy and didn't talk much to elders^^, she included. To say it clear. I didn´t know her.

She worked and traveled a lot for her country, but now she´s not feeling so well. She has a lot of dreams and one of them, surely on the top, is seeing and touching snow. You have to know that, Laos is located in a hot tropical area. The coolest average low temperature is 17 Celsius/ 75 Fahrenheit.
She worked really hard to be on the position where she is right now, to do whatever she wants. Maybe she worked a little bit too hard. The doctor's aren´t as good as the countries in the west. My father invited her to visit him (her brother) and of course to check out, what the diagnose is.
The results took some time, meanwhile they and my parents did a europe tour. On the list: Austria :D.  She had so much luck, near from my home is a mountain, and it was almost in the end of the ski season. The next moutain full of snow, would be far away. We did a excursion to the mountain, without my daddy, he rested because on the next day they had a long road to Venice.
You can believe me! It was hilarious I will never forget this moment :D. On the way to the mountain was a lot of nature. Her eyes glowed like a child she was impressed of the green iced lake, we talked a lot of water and the situation of Laos.
We arrived, it was a small mountain with some seat lifts, where only two can sit on it. Thank god there wasn´t a lot of people there. This was the first time for my mom, too, sitting on a seat lift^^. I already told them, that they shouldn´t be scared of the lift and that it won´t stop to move. In the end they have to jump off the lift. Haha they nodded and smiled at me, like pros :D, while Pepe and I discussed who is sitting with whom, the three of them walked to the place where the lift is coming and stand to three in middle of the place, I literally looked like that O.O. The man who worked there was confused and tried to pull one of them to the side. Four people on the place XD and the seat lift was coming. I shout to them in lao. "Only two!!! Only two!! Stand there and sit on the seat" They looked to the seat (normally you stand with the back to the seat) and watched how it came slowly. And from one to the next second they walked criss cross on that place. Poor guy who tried to explain how it works. The seat came and they all jumped to the side, You had 10 seconds between every seat lift. The man had a strong austrian accent, he explained to my mom how it worked and my mom: "yah yah yah" nodding like a dove who ate some seeds. I knew my mom wouldn´t understand him. I know it, I for myself took some time until I understood them^^. My uncle and my aunt watched him talking and showing somewhere with his finger and they followed his finger everywhere. The seat took almost the leg of my uncle with it, but luckily he could jump off. I didn´t count them but for sure more than 7 seats passed untill they understood how it worked XD. It was really chaotic and funny!

We were finally on the top of the mountain. Did I already mention, how much luck she had that day? It was soo sunny!  I luckily took my glasses with me. We decided to drink something first, before we played with snow keke. We ate some fries, drank some beers, Pepe and I drank Skiwater, I guess water and sirup.
She couldn´t wait to play with snow. It´s not like she hadn't seen snow in her life, but what she wanted was an endless amount of snow, higher than her knees. She wasn´t satisfied with 2cm of snow elsewhere.

We wanted to walk uphill to the forest, but it was more difficult as it seemed at first. The first ten footsteps were easy, but after that our legs sank in it. Haha you had to be there, seeing her face glowing and laughing all the time. I told her to crawl uphill so she wouldn´t use so much energy on it. Hahaha I and Pepe played paparazzi for her, we documented almost everything. She was tired, layed down on the snow, she closed her eyes and said: "It doesn´t matter what happens in the future I will die with closed eyes, I´m so happy happy". She opened my eyes again. We have almost everything and we´re not happy, because we reach out for things we don´t have, because we want the big things, for example a big house or an expensive car, for showing. Why do we need a big house for a small family? Of course for inviting guests and show how we can spend our money. Back to my aunt :), she has everything what she needs, a big house, her family, big cars, but no health.
My mom and I dug her in with snow XD. You can imagine how wet we were afterwards :D. It was a beautiful day for sure, the sun, the air, everything was on the right place :).
I really enjoyed the view, I feel so at ease when I'm at the mountains (or nature in general that is). I closed my eyes for a moment when we where on the lift to absorb the impressions, and I can still see the breathtaking beauty when I close my eyes up until now.
The sun was shining so strong, you could barely open your eyes, and the air was su pure, a perfect day. Some guys bathed topless in the sun ^^. My uncle took off his shirt and did the same as the other guys XD. I´m sure 80% of all people were ashamed of the situation, but for me it was worth it. A smile, a joyfull smile is invaluable and it doesn´t matter what the others think, with an average selfconfidence the world does look different.
I met her for a short time, but I love her already so much, she looks like my departed grandmother and my beloved dad. She said, she had to smile and laugh all the time, while she were on my side, she was very thankful for the beautiful pictures I did^^.


Pepe and I were in Germany for few days to say goodbye to Pepe´s grandmother, it was time for her to go back to her home in Guatemala, she was almost for half year in Germany, because of her operation on her hip. I met lovely Macarena (Maca) (youngest brother in laws (Andrés) girlfriend from Chile), the time was too short to know Maca better, I wish I had more time with her. Andrés and Maca were there everyday :). We went to a bowling center and I have to admit that I´m not a huge fan of it, after playing bowling we played table soccer and wohoo Maca played like rambo XD, actually Pepe and Maca played together :D Andrés and I were more of a decoration. I put make up on Maca, hehe you will see soon a make up tutorial featuring her ^__^. We were there when she left to the airport, it must be really hard to stick together for three months and go far away and wait for a long time until be able to see each other again. I couldn´t imagine how it would be with me, how I would manage, hope this will never happen >___<.
I saw my best friend Ted and a good friend, his brother Janosch, again. I love the board games nights :D My favourite games are Wizzard, Dominion, Manhattan, Elfenwald and Siedler von Catan, but we played Sternenfahrer, really boring, I don´t know why I let them convince me to play it. The days were funny and yummi *__*. The time flew away so fast. Finally we had to go, and the parting was very emotional. I became really fond of his grandmother, and I have the feeling that she likes me very much too. We spend a lot of time together, we cooked together, and talked about everything. This was the third time I had the chance to see her (we already saw her during christmas, but I'm still counting it as one time), and you never know when you get to see each other again, but I hope we'll have the chance to meet another time soon.
Of course I visited my family too, but it was too short, I missed them so much. We had a family dinner Laab Paed/ Duck salad (lao and thai kitchen are very similar). I do not like Laab but this one was really really good! I saw my cousin from Laos for the first time, I know a lot of visitors the past few moths :D. She loves my mom so much, that she wanted to see her badly. My cousin from Laos is the daughter of my mothers half brother (from her father side of the family) and my cousin (he is the grandson of my grandma's sister from my mother's mother side of the family) fell in love with each other, they are in the same age and it was love from the first moment. It´s unbelievable both are related to me but they aren´t to each other :D.

Back at home

My cousins drove us back home to Austria. I had few days with them. I showed them the city (I could work as a city guide XD) and we went to a small moutain to slide on a sledge. Her first time ;) with so much snow. The snow sparkled with bright artificial light, she saw it and said: " It looks like millions of diamonds". So cute! I was so happy for her, seeing her thruthful smile and wondering. We had a lot of fun together. I will never forget her happiness and screaming XD, it was too fast for her. Haha maybe you thought wow that´s a lot for a month.. no no I´m not done yet :D. My brother in law (middle) Fernando and his girlfriend Souni visited us here in Austria for few days. I learnt a new perspective and side of him which is really positive.We did a film night and the other day we did a drink brawl. I have to say I drank a lot! But luckily I can get a grip on myself, persons who don´t know me well, always ask me: " Wow you aren´t drunk, you can drink a lot!" hahaha ;D. After they left I got a cold and needed much time to rest.

March was really stressful, but it was worth it. I learnt a lot and again, for example how fast the world is running, we should never stop asking, because with every answer we´re learning and that´s good.
I prepared a lot of things to post. Stay tuned :D.

Ok :), hope you had a wonderful start in the week, wish you a nice and rested week, don´t forget to drink and do something good for yourself.
Lovely greetings
