    Palmenhaus take 2

    December 17, 2019 in Austria ⋅ ☁️ 6 °C

    We found the right one in the end. They had a set menu option of two courses for 16 euro so Rich got probably the tastiest tomato soup ever and pork with mushrooms and rice, and I got a kind of crumbed Raclette with endive salad and cranberries - more cheese than anyone needs, really - and more delish strudelRead more

    "Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn't stop to enjoy it." - William Feather

    We slept in today. To be honest, there was a little bit of an urge to do nothing but lay around and mourn the ruins of our honeymoon. But we got some treats from the patisserie downstairs, had some tea, and got moving.

    We spent our early afternoon walking around the city center, discovering museums and historical landmarks (that were closed), and enjoying each other's company. We stopped at the Palmenhaus for some lunch, walked around Hofburg palace, and found a spot in the grass to lay down and read.

    The rest of our afternoon was filled with more wandering, relaxing, and eating local Viennese food. Then we went to a concert. Sure, it was no Wagner at the Staatsoper, but watching a small group of performers playing the hits of Beethoven and Strauss was a wonderful evening.

    Budapest was amazing, to be sure. The sights and experiences were amazing. But we had so much to see and do, the focus was often on experiencing it all. Now, in a weird twisted sense, we're being forced to just stop and enjoy the happiness of being married to each other.

    So thank Coronavirus, I guess?

    Our Classy Evening

    August 30, 2019 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Tonight we had a dinner reservation at 8 pm (how European!) at the Palmenhaus, a conservatory in a park in downtown Vienna. What a delightful evening! They specialize in grilled fish and fine wine - Austria does a great job with their whites. Our waiter was knowledgeable, helpful and not at all the aloof stereotype of fine restaurant staff. Sitting outside watching folks pass by on the promenade - how could it get any better 😀

    Of course, being the big spenders, we took the tram there and back. We have a prepaid pass you know. Speaking of spending, our mid morning coffee, a NA beer at dinner and a glass of good wine - cost? The coffee was the most expensive of the three!

    Tomorrow we are off to Melk. The abbey there is on my bucket list. The next day Innsbruck. Feeling sorry for us yet?

    Every trip deserves at least one classy night out, without the hiking boots of course.

    Im herrlichen Jugendstilgebäude eröffnet sich die tropische Oase für eine Vielfalt an Schmetterlingen. Früher fand der Kaiser Franz Joseph Erholung dort.

    Für Ilo-Angsthase war es eine große Überwindung von so vielen, farbenprächtigen Schmetterlingen umflattert zu werden!Read more

    Palmenhaus im Burggarten

    Auf Empfehlung einer gemeinsamen Freundin haben wir eine Pause im Palmenhaus eingelegt. Ein scheußlicher Eiscafé wurde glücklicherweise wieder gutgemacht mit interessanten Begegnungen: Boris und den tanzenden Transvestiten.Read more

    Miam !

    December 7, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 4 °C

    Au menu ce soir :

    Une sorte de grosse croquette. On ne sait même pas ce qu'il y a dedans, mais ça a l'air bon ! (Finalement, c'est une sorte de boule de riz avec un cœur crème et champignons, le tout frit avec de la chapelure, et effectivement c'est très bon !)

    Hot dogs avec une bratwurstl et une kaiserkrainer, deux saucisses, la seconde étant fourrée au fromage (aussi bon qu'original !) (On remarque aussi que Sonia n'as pas réussi a attendre que je fasse la photo !)

    Et pour finir : une brochette de quartiers de mandarine nappée de chocolats blanc et lait.

    l'Opéra de Vienne, comme la bibliothèque me fait rêver.

    Notre visite commence par les salons, puis le hall pour se finir dans l'auditorium.
    Cela donne envie de revenir pour un opéra.
    Les places ne sont d'ailleurs pas si chères, car si les plus prisées sont de l'ordre de 250€, les plus modestes, debout, sont à 3 et 4€.

    Notre guide nous présente également le "bal des débutants" point culminant de la saison. Pour les dames, robe obligatoire, pour les messieurs, inutile de venir en costume, c'est le queue-de-pie qui est de rigueur.

    Mal wieder ein Asiate ohne Schnickschanck. Man merkt vielleicht ich steh nicht so auf die asiatischen Wackeldackel :)
    Sehr puristisch eingerichtet mit offener Küche und Tischen, wo man sozusagen am Boden sitzen kann (es ist aber trotzdem bequem, weil man die Füße sehr wohl nach unten ausstrecken kann).

    Ich bewerte einen Asiaten an seiner Miso Suppe, das mach ich schon lange so, weil ich finde anhand dieser kann man schon alles erkennen.
    Ich sag nur soviel: Die Miso Suppe war der Hammer!!!

    Ich hatte ein vegetarisches Menü mit vier Gängen und war hinterher kugelrund und glücklich!!!

    Ich hab für das nächste Mal schon einen Tisch reserviert :)
