Broke Girl on Vacation Part II
Yesterday I got surprised with a birthday ticket to China:-) So hello from Shanghai’s beautiful, and famous Yu Garden. It is my first time in Asia, and I absolutely love it here! Just kidding you guys, I am not on an adventurous,
dreamy vacation in China. This picture was taken in Stuttgart’s gorgeous Chinese garden, and it is picture number two of my current Broke-Girl-On-Vacation photo project where I travel the world while staying in Germany. Since I don’t have the money all these uber fantastic Instagram travel bloggers have, I had to be a little creative in order to realize my dream of being fancy little miss travel blogger. Sometimes you just have to work with what you have.
So here’s to not letting anything stand in the way of you, and your dreams! Ok, that’s enough now Peppa. Before I get too carried away with my whole you-go-people motivational speech, I should mention that I looked really, really silly while taking this picture. Since I get super embarrassed standing in front of a camera when someone else is around, I thought it would be a fabulous idea to do this on my own with the help of my camera’s self timer.
Little did I know that this would end up in a true cardio workout. I overestimated my physical abilities to get from the place the camera was positioned to the place I needed to do my fabulous, ultra professional model pose in the 10 generous seconds the camera gave me. So here I was running from A to B over, and over again, huffing, and puffing until I got the perfect, vain, blog worthy I-pretend-I-have-no-idea-I-am-being-photographed photo. #sillybloggerlife.
I hope you have as much fun with the outcome as I do. Oh, before I forget, something amazing happened on my birthday! I got the best gift I could imagine: A summer vacation. Yay me! I am so happy, and couldn’t be more excited. So in a few weeks I will finally go on a real vacation! Cote d’Azur here I come!
