    "The chickens are so big here"

    September 21, 2015 in Austria ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    Trip Advisor recommended a place called XXL. The food was great but they weren't joking about the XXL part!

    P.s. I ordered the chicken nibbles, which would've been perect. The staff asked if I would like a rib with them too as I'd been pondering them. He said rib, not rack!!!Read more

    Vienna, The Belvedere, Day 8

    October 27, 2015 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    After lunch, Tauck byssef us up to these Belvedere Museum, which had been the palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy, famous for driving the Turks out of Austria and preserving the Hapsburg rule. He was the son of Louis XV mistress, banished because he was a short, ugly hunchback. But apparently he was a brilliant military stategust and the Hapsburgs rewarded him with this and other palaces.

    The Belvedere contains a large collection of old masters (most unfamiliar to me), impressionists (Van High, Manet, Pissaro & several Austrian artists) and most famous of all, a small collection of Gustav Klimt's work,. He's known for: The Kiss, painted in the style of the Woman in Gold, the subject of the lawsuit covered in the movie of the same name. His other paintings portray a wide range of styles from commissioned portraits to impressionist style landscapes, none as impressive as the guilt style of the two noted above.

    We couldn't photograph the art so I can only include pictures of the building, garden and views from the windows. At 3, we returned to the shop for a brief rest before a private dinner in a private palace in the city. It will be a late night!

    Vienna 060617

    June 6, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    After a bumpy flight on take off and some slight delays we were met by Yves who took us via various bits of Vienna and a dodgy sat nav to our hotel the strand which is modern but apart from no air con is comfortable. We set off early this morning to have a coffee crawl round the various coffee cafes Vienna is famous for. First stop the cafecentral where we sat where sigmund Freud once sat and later we went to a pavement cafe. We got the metro in, very efficient, and then walked and metroed back. The parliament building was needing refurbishment and we noted that during this three year process there were to be portacabins for the parliamentary workers and both of us remarked that this would not be the case if it was the Houses of Parliament in the U.K. We walked across the old Danube and the new Danube and then to the veterinary school. Once I had walked back I had done 8.5 miles.Read more

    Aufbruch ...

    July 22, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Grieche am Kai. Die Kellner waren voll am schwimmen, aber trotz allem war das Essen bald da, schmeckte gut und war reichlich...

    Irgendwie ist das ein Grieche mit teilweise mexikanischer Karte. Im Unteren Stock ist das optisch klar getrennt, aber hier oben gibt es eine gemischte Karte. Wir bestellen aber etwas griechisches, weil wir nicht glauben, das die mexikanische Küche authentisch sein kann. :-)

    Dann gab es noch ein tolles Feuerwerk. Nach dem Essen setzten wir uns noch in den Garten und nahmen einen Cuba Libre mit Havanna zu uns.
