Mollie and the chocolate factory

I’ve been so lazy to edit my pictures but i couldn’t be more late or i would never do this post ^_^ so i finished editing the pics i wanted to use and here we go!
I went to Zotter chocolate factory in Graz, Austria with my sister and her class last friday. I didn’t have a Valentine so let me think this trip was. 
It took around 5 hours to go there with the bus which has so little space between the chairs that i coudln’t fit with my long legs >.< They way there was beautiful, in Austria everything is covered with snow. Somehow their snoe felt different when touching it. I coudl make perfect snow balls! And it was so much more white and soft! Maybe ours is import from China? On the bus we were watching a german movie Wer is Fred?/Where is Fred? It’s a tipycal german movie but it was fun even though sometimes i wished to quit watching it.
So when we arrived we went firt to visit the chocolate factory. It is huge! But i was disappointed becouse i thought we can see how they make the chocolates exectaly  but we didn’t see anything from that part of manufacturing. The only thing we could see was when how do they wrap up the bars. 
First we watched a short movie about where and how they cultivate the chocolate plants, it’s all bio and fair traid. Then we got a tiny spoon porcelain spoon to collect the chocolate there. We could try all of the chocolate they produce, even trying chocolate and caramel fountain. So of course we tried everything, even thought they asked us to eat one piece from each i bet nothing was left after us… >.< kkkk
At around the half of the factory we reached a bar where they had even more special choco, like choco with rose, saffron, white choco with goji berries etc. I never are that many weird but so delicious chocolate in my life!
So we are in the bar. We got hot milk in a cup and there was several different kind of chocopowder going around like in that kind of elevator what we use while go up on the mountain to ski. All of us choose one chocopowder to mix with the hot milk. I was disappointed again becouse cup looked like it’s full with milk but after mixing it with the powder it was less then the half…. -.-“ 
After emptying the cup we continued or tour of choco-heaven, trying out unique chocos like purple or pink choco and interesting balls and choco stones! It was so tasty! But we finished the factory in a half an hour. Never mind becouse i was so full of chocolate ,at the end i didn’t even tried what was left. 
We left the factory for Universalmuseum Joanneum/Kunsthaus Graz next to river Mur. They had weird exhibitions i didn’t understand but i just don’t understand modern art…Don’t open a depate on this topic with me…
After leaving the museum we climed up on the top of a mountain-looking something where they had a small house (?) with a huge clock, and the sight view was promised to be beautiful but not as much.
We had 2 hours to freetime to walk around the main square. I had to drop in in H&M for a black leggings printed with cool skulls but they only had the one in the window and didn’t want to sell it to me… arrrrgh!
So we were just walking around the square and visit all the stores we like from outside, like a rockabilly shop, Claire’s - the heaven for all of us, or Calzedonia for neon tights. Not like we don’t have these shops at home…but they didn’t have anything else new. I bought fake glasses again and vanilla-ice-cream-looking-nail-polish…

So at night we left home…and arrived at midnight…Long but beautiful day.
