Once again I decided to make a reality escape. This time during the end of the semester. Although this might not sound like the greatest idea ever but if one of your favourite singers has a concert in Florence and you’ve never been to Florence and you’ve never been on his concert then the most logical thing to do is to buy concert tickets, find the cheapest train and the cheapest hostel. And there you go, you are going on a weekend trip to Florence to see James Bay. No one would say no to that!

  • First Sunday of every month means free entrance to every attraction including museums, galleries, churches… So try to plan your trip during that time if you want to save your euros. We accidentally did this and let me tell you when that lady said that everything is free my smile was ear to ear wide. Florence is the best place if you’re an art fanatic.
  • We stayed at Via del Sole in the city centre and it was also 5 minutes away from the main train station. Cheap accommodation in Italy is not great. You can forget about reliable wifi or helpful staff. 
  • Piazza Santo Spirito is the place to be if you’re more into a local experience and a break from all the crowds. There is a small quiet cafe there, Pittam'ingoli where 4 euros will get you two cappuccinos and two brioches and a free wifi. We went there every morning and every afternoon for a quick break. Only a few steps away from the cafe is Ostaria Santo Spirito where even small portions are enough to keep you happy. Try the Baked Truffle Gnochi and you will crave it forever!
  • One of the most fun and affordable things you can do is to simply grab little bit of cheese, prosciutto, pesto, couple of beers from the supermarket and find a good picnic spot which won't be hard in Florence. 
That's all! Have a blast! :*

There were still Christmas lights on streets when I called my best friend and said: "Macklemore is coming to Vienna in March, do you want to go, let’s go. We have to decide today, European tour is practically sold out." "I have to ask my mom.", she said. Mom said yes, so we went. I had a mild panic attack, bought the tickets and we both screamed on FaceTime in our pyjamas with our desks filled with piles of work that needed to be done since this whole thing happened during our finals. There was never a moment that so well explained an adolescent friendship between two girls during an evening of extreme happiness and well, extreme despair. 

I like concerts a lot and I would probably spend my last $50 on a concert ticket. Most of the people in Croatia know the struggle. You really like a certain band but the closest city they have a show in is either Milano or Vienna. So no, you will not be lazy and give up and not go. This is what you do. You buy tickets online and pick them at the venue, don’t do the delivery because it will cost you big bucks and you should listen to me because I made this mistake, also you book a cheap hostel in the city centre so that you can explore before and after the concert, the one we stayed in was in Myrthengasse and it was perfect and dead cheap! Also you get your info straight and find the cheapest and most suitable bus or train ticket, you also bring your best friend and that’s it! Congrats, you are going to have the most amazing reality escape you could ever imagine.

This is what we did during our 48 hours in Vienna and so should you!
  • Bought spices and new vintage hat in Naschmarket.
  • Ate pancakes in Ulrich cafe.
  • Bought Springsteen’s record in Sing Sing, a second hand record store.
  • Got new stationary for my mum (she cried when she opened it) and my sister in Sous Bois.
  • Explored my favourite museum, Natural History Museum.
  • Danced like absolute champions while Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were hiting the stage.

That's all! Have fun! ;)
