My Favorite Kind of Ice Cream...

THAT IS IT. My favorite Ice Cream in the whole world EVAH!!! Haagen Dazs frozen yogurt vanilla honey & granola! it is amazing. its celestial its that good. For all those that thought Haagen Dazs is European you are wrong, if you google Haagen Dazs you will find out that Haagen Dazs was invented by 2 Polish immigrants in New York in the early 1900's. dahdah its American! Hurray. You wanna hear a depressing fact? I'm telling you anyways, now, a pint, or almost half liter contains 800 calories. WOW, that explains why my belly is getting bigger and bigger ;) So next time you go and buy ice cream you know which one to buy.

can you see how shine our faces are? yep looks like we got sunburned yesterday!!

A Beautiful Day

Jaimie and I went to the Hukilau beach yesterday, and we had a great time. Hukilau beach is usually known for having NO waves at all and its calm for most of it, but yesterday it had some nice waves and lucky me I had my boogyboard with me. I had so much fun and I was so excited to get into the water that I even forgot to put sunscreen on. So guess what? ... Yep! I got sunburned on my back and I'm a little pink in my face ;) Jaimie got it worse then me, her face is red and her right shoulder and the back got sunburned! Last night we had some treatment, we put aloe vera stuff on the parts where we got sunburned and thanks goodness for that it really helps a lot! anyway, Hukilau beach was fun.

As you can see I'm still white in this picture! I will always be white because I'm from Austria and I just don't tan as much as other people do or as in yesterday I get burned. RAR RAR. anyway below you can watch a video of my trying to be so cool and try and ride waves!

Isn't blogging amazing?

YES it is. Today I had such a strong desire to blog, and I didn't know what to blog about. So Jaimie showed me this awesome website, where you can find those really awesome backgrounds for your blog. Surprise, surprise, if you haven't already noticed I changed my background. Doesn't it look great? wow, I'm so into blogging!!! my English teach loves to take credit for that, that she got me hooked into this what the world calls blogging. ;)

My First Surfing Experience

Today was a beautiful day, it could have not been any better to go surfing for the first time in my life. Micah, a good friend of mine, took me out this afternoon. Actually, last winter Micah and I talked about going surfing, but who knew it would actually take us that long, we just never got around to it. Funny, I know I have been in Hawaii for over a year now, and it took me so long to finally try surfing, but hey I finally did it. I had so much fun and I'm so tired, surfing is exhausting. My arms are sore and so are my thighs, and I'm a bit red in my face! But I will definitely go again, its a good workout, you get tan at the same time, and you have a lot of fun. Its actually pretty hard to get up and stand on the surfboard but its a lot easier to catch the wave with a surfboard compared to catching a wave with a boogyboard.

I know its not an action picture, but its the best one. (I also promise herewith that this is the only half naked picture you will find on my blog) Maybe next time I'll get some good action pictures. I better go surfing again soon.

Las Vegas 2009

Oh my goodness, Las Vegas is stupendous, pretty much amazing. I flew into Vegas on December 30th and my girlfriend Jaimie picked me up from the airport. we stayed till January 3rd. and we had a blast. I partied it up into the new year on the strip, which was a way too busy place but it was quit fun. Let me show you some pictures.

You know, when you study Tourism, you get excited about this place, one massive hotel after another hotel, its amazing how big the hotels are. the above picture shows the well known Bellagio with the water fountain show.

The picture below shows the New York New York hotel with the craziest roller coaster that I have ever been on. Spending 14 $ for one ride, seems a bit much but totally worth it. Let me share the following conversation I had with Jaimie as we are getting ready to take off.
Me: 'is this safe?'
Jaimie: 'yep'
Me: 'oh no, I'm gonna crap my pants!'
Jaimie: 'honey, its okay, you will be fine!!!'
Me: 'honey, you can tell I'm nervous, because I'm talking a lot crap, ahhh'
oh my goodness, I was being the girl and she had the pants on. ;)

can you believe that, they have lions in the middle of the casino at the MGM hotel??? crazy what? wow. and below you can see me on the left and my better have on the right.

may I make a quick shout out to IN n OUT burgers!!!! the best Burgers EVAH!!! sorry, no picture of IN n OUT, i didn't get around to take the picture, I was way too busy eating em. ;)

okay, you wanna hear another crazy story. I'm telling you anyway. Guess what those stupid airlines did to me!! how dare they?? I arrived in Vegas without my luggage clear back in Vienna. So, I got to Vegas on Tuesday evening and guess when I got my luggage? you think the next day, but you are wrong!! They got it to me on Sunday evening!!! thats 5 days without it. I wasn't even in Vegas anymore by than, I was already at Jaimies parents house in Page, Arizona. Well, I went shopping and I found some good deals, pretty much best sale evah. I was so mad and annoyed about my luggage. I flew with British Airways and they are the record holder in loosing luggage according some random website I googled. anyway, what makes it even worst is that they broke into my luggage to check if its really mine! RARRRRR. So, I bought a new luggage too, a nice one!!! I'm now having my fingers crossed to see if they airlines are paying for my new clothes and for my luggage. My argument is, I mean, how hard is it to send you luggage to your destination? And I do understand that it might get here a day late, but NOT 5. ridiculous!!!!
They better give me refunds!!!

Besides what was already mentioned above. I went to Vegas and I didn't gamble!! exuse me, but whats wrong with me? isn't that why people come and visit Vegas.

As always, I had a wonderful time at Jaimie's house with her parents. Oh my goodness. Dennis and Marsha (Jaimies parents) are such nice and wonderful people. they are great!!! One evening we made Wiener Schnitzel (other story, i can't believe they use that name to sell hot dogs!!! rar, someone should do something about it!!!). it was really good. another time, Jaimie and I convinced them to put salsa and sweet corn into their tuna melt sandwich. hehe, you should try it, its amazing!!!!

anyway, thats pretty much the longest blog entry I will evah do! so, I hope you enjoyed reading it and make sure you look up my blog every once in a while. so you know what I'm up to.
