germany part two - augsburg again

Second part of my Germany trip, again about Augsburg city.


View from Ira's window. Their dorm, Lechbruecke is almost the only high building in the city.

On the lecture Ira and other students had a day of foreign food. Everyone made a meal and then explained what it is (infortunately in German, so I had a lottery :). This is our Russian table - vinegret, oladushki, sgushenka, tulsky pryanik and dark bread.

Trying some Italian pasta.

I am an outfit pro :)

On my last evening at Augsburg we went to nineteenth-floor terrace at Lechbruecke and I had some nice shots of the city.

Elevator selfie.

germany part one - augsburg

Helloo people! I'm back from Spain! We had a wonderful time, I got some nice tan there and a lot of good memories. Thank you for not forgetting about me and visiting my blog when I were out of internet. I'll tell you all about that trip later, because being a very responsible blogger I still didn't post photos from my trip to Germany which I had in July. I really have no idea why my posts wait for month or so when a line will come to them, and I'll try to be quicker so you get fresh information :)
Let's clarify my trip: the best friend of mine, Ira was studying at Augsburg University for the whole spring cemester, so when I were done with my exams I made a visa and went there for ten days to spend somу time with her. If you wonder what Augsburg is, it is medium-size city in Bavaria, 40 minutes away from Munich (which is the capital of Bavaria, by the way). I stayed in her dorm, we had some nice trips to Munich, Dachau and Nuernberg (which I will show later). This post and next one will be about Augsburg itself, which appeared to be a very nice town.

Наконец-то! Фотографии из моей поездки в Германию, которая была в июле. Знаю, что мои посты конкретно задерживаются, но по-другому почему-то сделать не получается, постараюсь быть шустрее. Моя лучшая подруга Ира поехала на целый семестр учиться в Университет Аугсбурга, и как только мои экзамены закончились, я получила визу и поехала ее навестить. Аугсбург - небольшой город в Баварии, всего в сорока минутах езды от Мюнхена. В Германии я провела десять дней, за это время мы успели съездить в Мюнхен, Нюрнберг и Дахау (обо всем позднее). Этот и следующий посты будут собственно об Аугсбурге, о моих от него впечатлениях и о том времени что я там провела.

Rathaus or something like that.

Having a walk arounf the city on my first day we bumped into a crowd of school children who were waiting on the street because the local star (no idea who she is) had shopping there. When she came out they started screaming and running, crazy!

Selfie. By the way, my new (on that moment) Ecco shoes, top and necklace from Reserved.

A must-have Germany lunch.

At the Augsburg University - nice and beautiful place!

A pond they have there, can you believe that? So beautiful!

And the strange horse statue, haha.

Sitting at Ulrichplatz having nice smoothie and iced tea at PowWow.

There's a nice park (or garden) where you can relax on a hot day.

Next part coming tomorrow, come and take a look! And please write your opinion wherever you like travel-posts or not!

to madrid!

On early-early-early morning tomorrow I'm having a flight to Prague and than to Madrid! As I've mentioned before, I'm going to spend two weeks by the sea, so had to say goodbye to you all! See you all very soon, I'll make lots of photos and will try to do some videos!

Decided to share sunprotecting stuff I bought for the trip, seems like no les than five litres. Yeah, really scared to be sun-burnt.

I'll be without Internet there, so I'll answer to everyone when I come back, also there are still photos from Germany awaiting to be posted, stay tuned!

top shopping

Some time ago I had a great shopping at Reserved. I've actually known this brand for a long time, and liked it but whenever I came to their shops they were so small and so full of clothes that it was hard to find anything there. Yeah, I have a serious theory about how a good shopping has to be. If something bothers me like a long queue to a dressing room, I'll be frustrated and most probably will not buy anything. I'm weird, I know :) Anyway, there's a new shopping centre RIO opened just near my home, we made a walk there and found a huge, awesome Reserved shop there! It's big, empty and full of great stuff. Lately I decided that I don't have enough tops in my wardrobe so I bought to T-shirts, two blouses and two necklaces there (2 and 2 and 2 :D). Here they are!

Если вам интересно, о каком магазине Reserved идут речь - это новый торговый центр "РИО", который открылся на Ленинском проспекте. Когда я там была, уже открылись от силы 10 процентов магазинов, поэтому наверное стоит приехать туда в конце августа. Кстати, там же откроется и H&M, наконец-то не на другом конце города!

Finally found a place to make good haul/shopping photos - on our balcony. Feeling like a pro now.

Awesome "crochet"/"holes" details.

Just fell in love with these clocks, reminds me of a little robot.

Fashion police here.

nike training club app

Special post today - post about trainings and healthy lifestyle, which is not about me at all - hard to find less non-sport girl than me. But once I found Nike Training Club app in AppStore, and since than my sport life started.

Особый пост сегодня, пост о тренировках и здоровом образе жизни - то, от чего я, честно говоря, далека. По крайней мере, была до недавнего времени. Совершенно случайно я нашла в AppStore приложение Nike Training Club, и с тех пор мое отношение к спорту изменилось.

The app is completely free and I believe there's one for Android as well. Among lots of sports apps this is the most handy and effective one I've ever seen. The only minus I've heard is that is only for women, no men analogue :)

Приложение абсолютно бесплатно и на русском языке. Наверняка такое же есть и на платформе Android. Единственный минус, который я заметила - отсутствие аналога для мужчин, о чем они возмущались в комментариях в AppStore :)

It's quite easy to start a workout - choose your goal - slenderness, tonus, strength or special 15-minute workouts; than pick your experience level, choose a workout and music and you're good to go! There is a PLENTY of different workouts you can choose, every excersice has a video and photo instruction. The app counts time for every excersice and even cheers you up sometimes :) While you're training, you get new badges and awards - special workouts created by the most famous sporstmen of the world, healthy recipies and other things. Also you can check out Nike sport clothes in the app and find the nearest shop.

Начать тренировку очень просто - выбираете цель - стройность, тонус, сила или специализированные пятнадцатиминутные тренировки, затем нужно выбрать уровень подготовки, найти нужную тренировку, настроить музыку и начать заниматься! Различных тренировок ОЧЕНЬ много, к каждому приложению есть видео- и фото-описание с подробной инструкцией; приложение отсчитывает время для каждого упражнения и даже подбадривает во время особенно сложных моментов :) Занимаясь все больше и больше, вы получаете новые бейджи и награды - новые тренировки от самых известных спортсменов мира, полезные рецепты и многое другое. Прямо в приложении можно посмотреть спортивную одежду Nike и найти ближайший к вам магазин.

I'm totally sure that you don't always need to attend gym and spend your money on personal trainer. If you're not a bodybilder you have to have very simple equipment - dumb-bells, phone and the most important - will to change yourself. I feel myself more free when I'm not tied up with busy workout schedule. Just when I have time, I turn on TV and start a workout, you can always find 15 minutes to make a contribution to a new body.

Я уверена - не обязательно нужно покупать абонемент в спортзал и тратить деньги на персонального тренера. Если вы не бодибилдер, достаточно самых простых вещей - пары гантелей, утяжелителей, телефона и главное - желания изменить себя. Мне гораздо проще не связывать себя походами куда-либо. Я просто включаю телевизор и начинаю тренироваться, всегда можно найти 15 минут чтобы сделать маленький вклад в копилку нового тела.

Simple, huh? Stop starting a new life tomorrow, start it today.
