Kirchenruine Wachau

It's been too pretty weather for blogging, that's why I've pushed this post towards the future and spent my time rather on the beach than with the laptop (very ungoth, I know). However perhaps it's time to open you my journey shortly and tell you how everything happened this year. And yes I do had  a lot of blast. 

Again it was time to travel to Leipzig into that city which is situated in Eastern Germany and starts to be quite familiar to me. After waiting for many months it was a high time to participate in dance of the death. We chose to travel again via Berlin because I think it's the most comfortable way to get to Leipzig from Finland. Although the train tickets are bloody expensive there we decided to take a train from Berlin to Leipzig. But when coming back we chose the bus instead which was much cheaper, but the journey took longer and there was a street maintenance going on and due to that the bus was late over thirty minutes.  The bus was okay too and it went straight to the airport, but perhaps the train is more reliable in Germany when you never know if there is a traffic or accident on the autobahn and now there was both and we had to get to the airport in time. Fortunately we did. 

We arrived on Thursday as always and this time we opted a different hotel and it was fairly interesting experience! I knew the area where the hotel was supposed to be located (Augustusplatz) and we walked there from the main station and what was waiting for there? A building state! My heart nearly stopped beating and all horror sceneries appeared to the mind. Wait what where is that hotel, there is only a big building state and no hotel at all. We strayed there for a few minutes until a friendly goth couple came to tell us that yes you are in the right place, the hotel reception is in the van! Okay everything cleared and the hotel staff was very friendly. They told as that the hotel was pure new and they still have frontage undone and some rooms also and some corridors. And yes the fresh paint smelled when the guy brought us to the our room which was very neat! I have never bunked in the room like that. Really pretty and stylish with a kitchen and  a nice view. And we got 50% discount because of the renovation. Actually we had a quite good luck! I already thought that I was hoaxed and the hotel does not exist at all. I've read stories about the situations when someone  books a room and when she arrives there is nothing. And I knew that all hotels are booked during the WGT so it would have been quite difficult to find another room. 

Thursday went and Friday came. This year we definitely wanted to visit Kirchenruine Wachau. I have admired the pictures from there and I wanted to see that place through my own eyes and it was magnificent that I can't find the words to describe it! Why we can't have anything like this in Finland? The pictures speak themselves: 
An old ruined church, but I wondered that there was quite fresh graves though. 
 Outfit of the first day. A self made lace dress and my favorite boots. I didn't plan my costumes this year much. I just chose something which I found in the wardrobe.
I took too many pictures in this place if a man can take too many pictures in the place like this. After photo sessions we rushed to Victorian picnic where we randomly bumped into the other Finns, but this year I didn't captured the pictures from there.  

Ash Code was the band of Friday and they played at Stadbad which was a new location to us. We have tried to visit and see the new venues and places every year when there is so many to see that you can't see everything at once. There was a long queue, but we were lucky to get in.

  1. There were train delays too this year, so I don't think it would have made a difference. We were lucky, we arrived and left a few days before and after WGT, so there wasn't much chaos then!
    Beautiful photos! I wish I could have seen Ash Code, but Skeletal Family was playing at the same time at Täubchental, so.. But there will definitely be more chances to see Ash Code, maybe even as early as august! Stadtbad is a really cool venue. Westbad was new this year, that seemed pretty alright too. But there was a lot of queues everywhere this year!

    1. I considered Skeletal Family as well, but we ended up seeing Ash Code. We saw Skeletal already a year ago. Yep long queues everywhere except in Agra.
