| Movie | Captain Phillips

Oh my god, words can't describe how amazing this movie is. Tom Hanks is once again great and if I would be in the Oscar jury, I would give him the Oscar immediately :)

First about the movie itself:
The true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.

It's pretty short, but I don't want to tell you more. The movie is a little bit longer than 2 hours but you can't feel it because you are completely in the story. The tension is huge and I was sooo nervous the whole movie, you can't believe it. The end of the story is hard to guess and that's what makes the movie so fantastic.

The actors next to Tom Hanks had a hard job - imaging playing next to such a great actor must be intimidating. But they made a great job. You will have twisted feelings against the Somali pirates because in my opinion they are not just bloody pirates - they are people who have nothing to loose, born in a country without a lot of oportunities. And that's what I like about the movie as well - they emphasize this topic as well.

Let me know what you think about this movie. I hope you will like it as much as I did.

Have a wonderful night,

| Music | Imagine Dragons

Good evening, Good morning, Good afternoon where ever you are in the world!

Today I have to show you my favorite new band that I just "discovered" in Canada. Imagine Dragons is a US-Indie-Rockband from Las Vegas. They got famous last year with their song Radioactive. This song is just amazing and always makes me feel a little bit a sentimental, I don't know why.
Listen to it and enjoy it!

Another amazing song is It's time. The music is more rock music but even if you don't like rock, I think you will like it....

Have a great evening and enjoy listening to this songs,
Nina :-*

One of my favorite restaurants in Vancouver

Hamburg is not always a hamburger.... A good real hamburger is like a synphonie, the first bit and you will feel, that's the one...!
But unfortunately, that doesn't happen a lot. That's why, I have to introduce you to Subeez.

Subeez is a restaurant and bar in Yaletown. The restaurant is really big but there is always a good atmosphere. Especially the huge candleholders full of candlewax are an eye catcher and they are part of this great atmosphere.

The menu is mixed but what they offer is good. Especially the burgers are really tasty. My boyfriend is of the mind that this burgers are the bests in the city :)

You don't like burger or you're just not in the mood for a burger? Try pasta or salads. I had Chicken Penne yesterday and it was delicious. Penne with a white wine sauce, mushrooms, tomatoes, asparagus and chicken.

Anyway, I can really recommend Subeez (pretty obvious) and I'd love to hear what you think about Subeez. Let me know!

Have a wonderful sunday,

Enjoy with me the lifestyle of Vancouver

Heeey my friends,

I'm baack. But this time I'm really back ;) I decided to write this blog in english because I really have to improve my writing. After four month I'm still in Vancouver and it's amazing here. Now, unfortunately, the weather is changing but I really don't care, every season has its beauty.
Soo, I hope you are still with me and we can start together in this new episode of this blog. Of course I will write a lot about Vancouver and all the great shops, restaurants and sightseeing opportunities you have here but I won't forget that there are some people who are not in Vancouver. :)

Have a great start in a new week,
a lot of hugs Nina
