What do you do and why do you do it?

I am studying socio -economics. What does it mean? I am trying to find some humanity behind money. Besides that, you can find me working in one hipster coffee shop, where I will show you the art of a coffee or help you to find the best coffee beans. All direct trade.

You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?

One republic - If I lose myself. But I do not prefer being sad. What about: where is the love from Black Eyed Peas? They rock.

What are the best TV shows of all time?

The Simpsons. And How I met your mother. Charmed. I am addicted to watching series, so this list could be pretty long. Can I not be a professional series watcher?

Name some spots in Vienna that are good for a Tinder date.

Nudist´s beach close to the Danube river ? Well, depends on your preferences, but I would prefer to go for a cup of coffee to Jonas Reindl or a tapas at Der Fuchs und die Trauben.

Who’s your hero and where in Vienna would you take them out for a serious hang?

Amal Clooney. The famous lawyer, you know. She is so elegant and smart. I was obsessed with her back in the past, when I thought I wanted to study law. Well, that changed. But Amal still remained my hero. Oh that would be so nice if she wanted to hang out with me. So at first I would take her for a brunch to Hotel Daniel. Or to Phil Bakery. Then we would go for a little walk

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

I do not really have a favorite spot the shop. :( I always spend all my money on eating out, drinking coffee and dates with my boyfriend.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

Hanging out at Donaukanal.

What’s the most decadent / extreme dish you ever ate in Vienna and where did you get it?

Decadent ? No. The total opposite. The schnizel is the most typical meal in Austria. But this one particular was special and decadent in it´s form. It was huge. But not one. Two huge schnitzels.They were huge and cheap. At Schniztelwirt. I felt so extremely full and satisfied. One of the happiest days in my life.

Is there a hidden bar / hole in the wall in Vienna that you particularly like?

Der Fuchs und die Trauben! Order me some tapas and a white wine please!

What’s the one place you think is overrated in Vienna?

Naschmarkt. It´s a big open market on the street, where you can get fresh fruit, nuts, bread, cheese and a lot of other things. There are also a lot of small restaurants and small cafés. Pretty overpriced. But I like it anyways. It´s a love-hate relationship.

What’s the one place you think is underrated in Vienna?

The tiny streets of Spittelberg. It looks like you´re not in Vienna anymore. There is the best christmas market in winter!

Tomorrow’s your last day in Vienna. How do you spend it?

If it was winter, I would go to chill at Donaukanal. With a white Spritzer (white wine) in one hand, and diary that I would buy in Paperbird (that cute little stationary shop in 3. district in Vienna) in my second hand. I would write all my memories down to remember the best time in this city. And if it was in winter? I would go chill to Museumsquartier with my clique, drink some of the best mulled wine and listen to life dj´s there. All in all, I would just chill, enjoy the atmosphere and observe people. Because that´s one of the coolest things you can do in Vienna.

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

Stockholm. I am a little obsessed with Sweden. I like the tiny streets of Gamla Stan where you can get easily lost. It feels so magical and so romantic. Booking the flights yet?
