A couple of months ago I went to Vienna with two pals to visit a good friend who was attending Vienna University for half a year. It was the first time I had ever been to Vienna, but I don’t think it’ll be the last time. Vienna was beautiful, and very relaxed.

The weather was cold, but luckily so was the beer. And the food was delicious as well, and we ate a lot too! Pretty much, we were either eating or on our way to eat something the entire time, lovely!

We obviously also did some sightseeing, such as the Schönbrunn Palace and the Hofburg Palace. We also went to a hockey game of the Vienna Capitals. It was a great game, which the Capitals won 2-1.

I liked it so much, I wanted to play hockey as well, so I went to the student ice hockey club of Groningen, The Bulldogs, and joined a practice. I hadn’t been on the ice for at least five years, so I needed some time to get used to it again. But the coach said he’d seen a lot worse for a first time, and some team members were actually surprised to hear I never played hockey before, so I did good! Sadly though, the season was almost over, so I have to wait until September to really get started.
