#MQSommerOpening in Vienna

Wie ihr vielleicht auf Social Media mitbekommen habt, war ich vergangenes Wochenende in Wien. Vor einigen Wochen flatterte die Einladung rein 42 Stunden MuseumsQuartier Wien zu erleben. Ich war sofort Feuer und Flamme, denn ich bin ein großer Museums-Fan. Leider komme ich viel zu selten dazu Ausstellungen anzusehen. Irina durfte mich begleiten und freuten uns auf das #MQSommerOpening. Mein letzter Wien-Besuch lag auch schon über einem Jahr zurück. Doch leider habne wir es nicht geschafft das MuseumsQuartier letztes Jahr zu besuchen.

Bei unserer Ankunft erwartete uns herrlichstes Sommerwetter, das die Stimmung umso besser machte. Das MQSommer-Opening bot verschiedene Führungen und Live-Konzerten am Abend an. Da passte das Wetter super, denn letztes Jahr hat es das Event leider verregnet. Was hatten wir für ein Glück!

hier auch ein schönes Stimmungsvideo:

42 Stunden MUSEUMSQUARTIER WIEN

Wir besuchten das MuseumsQuartier Wien gleich am frühen Nachmittag. Ich verliebte mich sogleich in das schön und gut gestaltete Museums-Areal – moderne Architektur innen, die außen von klassischer Architektur gefasst ist. Die verschiedenen Durchgänge/Eingänge führen zu drei verschiedenen Innenhöfen, die wiederum untereinander verbunden sind.

“Die Stimmung ist hier ganz anders!”

In München haben wir auch ein Museumsviertel, doch die Atmosphäre ist noch lange nicht so gut, wie im MQ. Wenn es Events gibt, dann nur am Königsplatz. Die anderen Plätze werden seltener genutzt, wo sie doch wunderschön wären. Anders in Wien. Der Hauptplatz schafft ein schönes Zentrum und füllte sich schon bei unserer Ankunft. Im großen Wasserbecken, dem AQUADROME fanden Bootsrennen statt. Auf dem MQ Vorplatz wurde Mini-Golf gespielt und auch die Boule Bahn wurde eingeweiht.

MuseumsQuartier Wien #MQSOMMEROPENING

Für uns standen erstmals ein paar Führungen auf dem Programm, die ich mir zuvor aussuchte. Führungen sind immer super, um die einzelnen Museen kennenzulernen und noch mehr Informationen zu den Ausstellungen zu kriegen. Zeitlich haben wir es leider nicht zu allen Führungen geschafft.

Am ersten Tag sahen wir uns folgende Ausstellungen an, die ich euch sehr empfehle:

  • „SUBTEXT: TYPEDESIGN. gegenwärtig – lokal: contemporary – austrian“ im designforum Wien
  • „a_schau. Österreichische Architektur im 20. und 21. Jahrhundert“ im Architekturzentrum Wien

Gegen 18:00 Uhr gingen dann auch schon die ersten Konzerte los. Der Hauptplatz war rappelvoll. Wir durften hoch auf die Terrasse und konnten die letzten Sonnenstrahlen genießen. Den Abend ließen wir im Anschluss bei einem gemütlichen Dinner im Garten des Glacis Beisl ausklingen.

Museumsquartier Wien AUF DEM DACH DES LEOPOLD

Glücklicherweise hatten wir noch einen zweiten Tag um auch das Leopold Museums zu besuchen. Für Museen braucht man einfach Zeit! Das Leopold Museum ist nicht nur architektonisch mein Favorit, auch die Ausstellungen gefielen mir sehr gut. Das Leopold Museum hat unter anderem die größte Sammlung von Egon Schieles Werken. In den unteren Etagen befindet sich derzeit Werke von Erwin Wurm, der mit seinem Humor einfach nur zum totschießen ist. Ebenso die Bilder von Carl Spitzweg. Nicht ohne Grund heißt die Ausstellung „CARL SPITZWEG – ERWIN WURM: Köstlich! Köstlich?“. Ja sie war köstlich!

Kontemporäre Kunst hingegen findet ihr im MUMOK. Derzeit läuft eine sehr interessante Ausstellung namens „WOMAN. FEMINISTISCHE AVANTGARDE der 1970er-Jahre aus der SAMMLUNG VERBUND“.

Ein Besuch des MuseumsQuartier im Rahmen eurer Wien Städtereise kann ich euch nur ans Herz legen. Das Schöne ist, dass wirklich für jeden Geschmack, jede Altersklasse Ausstellungen angeboten werden. Hoffentlich schaffe ich es diesen Sommer nochmals nach Wien. Events werden im MQ ständig angeboten. Das MuseumsQuartier sieht mich dann spätestens wieder zum WinterOpening!

Ich wünsche euch einen schönen Tag!

Restaurants in Munich | Italian dinner at Vinpasa

I’m not the biggest fan of Italian restaurants in Munich. Most of the times the restaurants are way too overprized. Sometimes all I want to eat is a simple good plate of pasta, which I love to eat at Bar Centrale and at Timballo. I only had a good pizza twice in Munich – at Grano at Jakobsplatz and I love the pizza at Rossopomodoro at EatalyI know, I’m super picky when it comes to Italian food! But since I got a lot of questions regarding Italian restaurants in Munich I continued my search.

It’s been over a year that I lived in Schwabing. Still, I haven’t tried a lot of restaurants in my neighbourhood. I was invited by a good friend to Vinpasa for a special occasion – an upscale restaurant in Isabellastraße.

Italian restaurant Munich VINPASA

The Italian restaurant Vinpasa is divided into two areas: a small bar/bistro in the entrance area and a dining area with around six tables on the mezzanine. The interior is classy and there are some modest pictures on the wall. The light was dimmed and created a cozy atmosphere. Although we went there on a weekday the restaurant was quite crowded. Luckily, we had booked a table.

Italian restaurant Munich Vinpasa – Food & Drinks

The menu is quite small, which is always a plus point for me. For a cozy dinner you can either choose the four or five courses menu (48€/58€) or à la carte. I chose a fantastic swordfish carpaccio and the Strozzapretti with salsiccia ragout. My friend chose the four courses menu. I highly recommend the swordfish carpaccio. The cucumber and capers went so well together with the fish. On the other hand, I wasn’t such a big fan of the Strozzapretti, which didn’t have a lot of sauce. Likewise felt my friend – half of the dishes were really good and the rest of the dishes were okay.

The ambience was lovely and very cozy. I think the picture below captures the atmosphere quite well. The staff was very professional and attentive. We spent a wonderful evening at Vinpasa!

Bolzano but different! On #ExpeditionCityLife with Tatonka

Bolzano but different! Back home I could finally shoot this street style campaign together with Bastian. For those of you who have already been in Bolzano know the pretty old town. But how many of you know the industrial, rough part of it? The South of the city is landmarked by a typical industrial zone. Old walls were enhanced by cool graffitis from well-known artists and amateurs. It’s a long time that the old railway stopped it’s way through this part. Even better for us as we have a great shooting location. It’s been a while that I took pictures here. At the early beginning of this blog we used to shoot here a lot. Part of this campaign is the new TATONKA Daypack Sparrow 19 Women. This cool athleisure look with sporty leggings, supergas and a embroidered top is the perfect match.

Street Style back then

Street style always reminds me of the younger version of me. I’d passed most of my afternoons together with friends on the skateboard park. Who would’ve thought that I’d always been wearing the clunky skater sneakers. I’ve laughed myself to death recently when looking at the old pictures. What did the think? Well, fashion was different back in the days. Luckily, athleisure is en vogue right now, which allows us to wear sporty clothing also during the day.

TATONKA Daypack Sparrow 19 Women

The TATONKA Daypack Sparrow 19 Women became a true travel companion. Backpacks are so much more convenient when traveling. Comfort first! I would never want to wear my heavy camera plus computer in a bag on one shoulder.

Sparrow 19 Women PRACTICAL DESIGN

The daypack has the perfect design and there is nothing to complain about it. The interior is perfectly organized:

  • inside you’ll find a laptop sleeve, where my 13” MacBook fits
  • there’s another side pocket for longer things, i.e. bottles
  • inside you’ll find two more pockets, where I keep all my travel accessories, i.e. sleeping mask, floatable travel pillow
  • moreover there is a handy front pocket with an organizer, upholstered smartphone bag and a key holder (very useful for people like me who loose everything)

A huge plus point is that you can open the Tatonka backpack not only from the top but completely all around. This allows me to lie it onto somewhere and see immediately all my stuff. The backpack surprisingly spacious. As you can read I’m very impressed. I have to admit that I wasn’t a big fan of backpacks before. My clunky school bag was quickly exchanged for a cool bag, where I kept all my heavy folders. I would never ever do that again to my shoulders and back!

By the way, the Sparrow 19 is also available in a beautiful red (similar like my Yukon backpack) and in a hip baby blue. I took the more discreet version in titan grey.

Back in my own bed & sneak peek into my new room!

I’m finally back in South Tyrol. I’ve spent the past weeks almost every single night in a different hotel. You can’t imagine how good it feels to sleep in my own bed. Speaking of which I’ve got a couple of impressions of my “bed sit”. Well, the term isn’t that correct as I call it more my temporary base. About a year ago we moved to my mum’s parent’s house and since I was traveling a lot it is still a work in progress. The room has long been my aunt’s room and how it is in most cases it remained in its old state for many years. Consequently the mattresses were extremely old too. The request from Leesa came right on time. The structure is similar as my beloved mattress, which I had to leave in Munich. But the Leesa’s philosophy persuaded me immediately.

Leesa Mattress Philosophy sustainable business model

Emma, Caspar, Bruno, Muun, Leesa? The mattress hype is everywhere. The structure of the diverse mattresses is similar. However, Leesa‘s philosophy helped my decision. The company, which originally comes from the US has a sustainable business model. It started already in 2015 and therefore has a longer company history than other start-ups in Germany. Leesa is a certificated B Corp™-Business1 and accomplishes the highest standards when it comes to social and ecological performance, transparency and responsibility. The company also strives to achieve social and ecological solutions:

  • The mattresses are locally produces, i.e. Leesa’s mattresses for Germany are produced in Thüringen.
  • One-for-ten-programm – when ten mattresses are sold one is donated to an aid agency. Already 10.000 mattresses have been donated! That’s great!
  • Leesa also works with the Arbor Day Foundation, which plants one tree per sold mattress. The target is to plant one million trees until 2025.
  • and much more!

1B Corp is a world-wide network for businesses which aim to do something good. “B” stands for “Benefit”

Leesa Mattress Experience Structure

The mattress is made out of three layers:

  • a Cooling Avena® Foam 5cm – allows air-flow for a cooler night’s sleep
  • Memory Foam 5cm – pressure Relieving
  • support foam 15cm – adds strength, durability and structure

A140cm Leesa mattress costs 615€ and a 180cm Leesa is 775€.

Leesa Mattress Experience Comfort

I’m a huge fan of memory foam mattresses. They are extremely comfortable. You can also lie the mattress directly on the floor or on a wooden construction (palettes). If you want to place it on normal duckboards take a very robust one because the mattress is heavier than normal ones. I love the fact that the cover is nicely made and the color is great.

It’s the perfect mattress for restless sleeper, which causes that we move during the night. That was my case usually. Normally, I sleep lateral position and you recognize immediately if a mattress isn’t comfortable. Did you know that 60% of the people sleep in this recovery position? Up to know I didn’t have any problems and slept really good on my Leesa. After over 100 days on my Leesa mattress I highly recommend it!

Good morning from Vienna!

A quick Sunday greeting from Vienna! Our long weekend is coming slowly to an end. Tuesday and Friday were such beautiful days with summerly temperatures. We shot this look super early in the morning even though it was already super hot. However, it got super cold again yesterday and I was lucky that I’ve brought this light down padded Bomboogie jacket. This look is more casual with stylish spring boots from EMU and a hip jeans from Colloseum.

Irina and I spent some very cool days in Vienna. My highlights were definitely the visit of the MuseumsQuartier, which I highly recommend you on our visit. I’m a huge fan of museums! But more within this week. We’ll have breakfast for the last
time now and then I need to jump on the train again!

Enjoy your Sunday!
