Vienna a Magestic city

Vienna has a musical legacy; the more important are Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Franz Schubert, Johannes Brahms, Gustav Mahler and Arnold Schoenberg. Some people would call it as a “The city of Dreams”, accordingly it was hometown of Sigmund Freud. In the city center we can find Baroque castles, gardens, monuments and parks. Also we can find Romanesque, classicist, art nouveau, and modern architecture. There is a place that receives many tourist visits it is The Hundertwasserhaus, it building was designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser.

Regarding with my travel partners I were to Vienna with my friend Yenny and her boyfriend, how they speak germane I had any problem understanding however sometimes I could speak in English. We traveled by car, it was not a long journey from Munich from my point of view, thus my friends were so tired. I enjoyed the scenery and landscape while we were coming to Vienna even so it was in winter season it was breathtaking view, as far as I remembered it.

As far as concerned, Vienna is an elegant, lovely, attractive and admirable city.  I could feel as an elegant woman, actually I amJ. As I said before I went to this place with some friends, they found strange that I wanted to visit the cemetery; it was the only point to discuss in our trip. I just wanted to see the Mozart tomb, in fact I did not know why! I just felt that I had to visit, and then they agreed with me. When we arrived I started to seek for Mozart tomb and I found it. I was happy and I wanted to feel the wise energy from this place. Some people may disagree with me but I could feel it, I was fulfilled.

Afterwards we had a look around the city center, drinking a delicious chocolate, and listening classical music. I remembered St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Stephansplatz, Belvedere Palace, Austrian Parliament Building, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Rathaus, Vienna State Opera and Albertina as well.

Boston… First snow

Charles River

Boston has many meaning for me. It was a dream, a goal, new friends, English speaking experience, new culture, and new challenge.

Boston is the capital of the U.S state of Massachusetts, and it was founded in 1630 by Puritan colonist from England. Its nicknamed is “The walking City”. This was a student travel, because I needed to do an internship to get my Urban Design degree that I was studying in Venezuela Central University. It was a wonderful opportunities to me in many aspects. Thought I got clarity about what I would like to be in the following years. My best roommate was Adriana; actually I am grateful for having her as a friend nowadays. We did the project internship together and 18 was our qualification. Back Bay was place to do that project, we had written about its urban spaces, streets, how building conform the urban border.

Back Bay has Victorian brownstone homes and it is considered one of the best-preserved examples of 19th century urban design in the United States. It was influenced by Haussmann’s renovation of Paris. Numerous notable building you can find there as a Trinity Church, The John Hancock Tower, Boston Public Library.

Marvelous moments

As a part internship we had to give a speech to Fenway Community. My student group was conforming for Carola, Abigail, Adriana, Isabella and I. Carola was who gave that because she could speak in English very well. Carola did a very well done job, in my opinion.

We visited the Harvard University, and we could see a final project term I really enjoyed it. Also I looked up the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Boston University. I thought Oh my god in this place I would like to study I felt amused.

The day before I came back to Venezuela, had started to snow a little bit as you can imagine I was really impressed it was my first time I saw the snow.

Everyday my friend made me talk in English they did not help sometimes; they said that I had to practice my English. While I was studying Urban Design I studied English as well. I finished it maybe a year after. I usually did talk with my boyfriend who is not anymore! That’s life.
