I am in beautiful Berlin since yesterday. I love that city! Today was a very special day because I got to see 2 good friends from Hamburg again!!! In addition to that I’ve won a competition a few weeks ago (true awesomeness I’m telling you!). I’ve won a musical ticket for the show “der Schuh des Manitu“.(and the big day was today) It’s a remake of a famous German movie of the same name. I’ve already seen the show twice but even the third time was brilliant! A bit different but surely entertaining. 😉

Afterwards I got the chance to take a look behind the scenes and touch the requisites. I like touching things!…Ok this sounds naughty but people who know me better should know how to take it.(if not,whatever!)  And guys, please be proud of me because I did not break anything (it was kinda close though but nobody needs to find out so shhhhhhhh!!!!!). I deeply appologize for the almost-heart-attacks I’ve given to people 😉

me and the person who made it all possible 🙂

It was very interesting and I am very glad that I finally got to see Thomas as Winnetouch(one of the few muscial actors whose work I actually admire). It was hilarious and cute at the same time. Big thanks to Annika and Beate as well! It was AWESOME to see you again. Should do that way more often!!(but as u know “arbeit nervt…bämdebämbäm” lol)

And what would that day have been without those mandatory and awesome pictures I tend to take? 😉

“Olgas” reunited 😉

the amazing 3 “Ayses” stopped by as well 🙂

1. It’s Showtime

Some of you might know that I love musicals, shows and theater so I was quite excited to see some shows again this summer. Finland is not a big musical country so I always have to wait until I’m back in Germany again to enjoy some shows…

This summer I got to see:

Ganz oder gar nicht/The Fully Monty & Non(n)sense

Der Schuh des Manitu & The Producers

and Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

2.Traveling

I love getting to know new places and the feeling I have when I’m stepping out of a plane, train or car in another country is just incredible. I know that probably sounds weird but I enjoy discovering the highlights and secrets of a new city.

Rotterdam was the final destination of my summer 2009

3.Friends & Family

I always love it when I see my friends and family outside of Finland again. I remember last summer I was travelling through Germany almost the entire summer to visit my friends…unfortunately this year I don’ have the time to do that 😦 So I did not get to see as many friends as I wanted to…Hamburg,Berlin, Düsseldorf…I miss you!!

4.Barbecues in the garden

I loooove “barbecue-ing”! What’s better than grilled chicken, potato salad, ice cold drinks and great company on a hot summer night?

5.Back to the roots

Although I love (living in) big cities I also enjoy going back to my roots: the life in a small town with lots of nature…Waren/Müritz… This summer I got it all 🙂

The alarm clock rang at 4:30am…without any compassion and mercy!! I felt soo dead…should have slept more than 3,5 hours but anyways I managed to get up because THE DAY has finally come: HOLLAND HERE I COME!!!

Jess and I took the train from Berlin to Holland…we even managed to get our connection train in Amersfort within 2 minutes and we managed to get on the wrong train:we almost ended up in Den Haag instead of Rotterdam. I would have liked to see the picture of us speeding through the trainstation with an at least 30 kg suitcase and temperatures around 30°C. We were more than happy when we finally arrived in Rotterdam,found our hotel (don’t ask how long it took us to get there!) and got rid of our luggage.

We were so excited because we were gonna see Renée again and give her the award I have mentioned earlier in this blog. She loved it!!  The Show was amazing! For those who don’t know which show we were seeing: Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Joseph and the amazing technicolor dreamcoat“.That show is amazingly successful in Holland!!

and the winner is… 🙂

Lotsa new people on stage (at leats for us) but they were all very good! Especially the Pharaoh who is modelled after Elvis. OMG I laughed so much! The show is amazing and Renée’s voice gave me goosebumps and even shot tears into my eyes!!

This one’s from the very end of the Show

The Megamix on July 2nd 2009. Love it!

Has anyone of you been to Rotterdam yet? It’s so beautiful!! I was shocked! I did not expect it to be that pretty, and cool and…ahh I don’t know…just go there!!! Here’s a little picture of Rotterdam’s most famous “symbol” taken from the theater!

the Erasmus Bridge

Tomorrow (or better said in 4,5 hours) we’re leaving for a day trip to Amsterdam!! That’s gonna be exciting!! Stay tuned!

25.02.2009 – Helsinki

 

As announced earlier I went back to Germany for 10 days…It was sooo much fun but as usual the time went by way too fast. The minute I arrived in Berlin I was booked out til the last second…craaazy…but great fun! I went to see ”The Rocky Horror Show” in Düsseldorf with some friends and ”Spamalot” in Cologne. Both Shows were amazing!! (click here to see pix). I can’t remember the last time I’ve laughed that much!! Everybody go see it please!!!

It was also Carnival time in Germany…and this means LOUD, COLORFUL and CRAZY people…just perfect haha! This year my sister was the Carnival’s princess and the theme for the carnival show was “Musicals”…soo I dressed up as Indian and had some Flyers of Berlin’s “der Schuh des Manitu”. At the party I also got to see a lot of old friends again!! Felt so good!!! But the day after wasn’t that much fun…stupid alcohol! I’ll never drink again..EVER (riiiiight!!!)
