    All those who wander are not lost....w

    August 13, 2017 in Austria

    Today was a day of wandering! After a chilled morning Eimear and myself headed off around to explore the city and do some shopping. We started in the same direction that we usually took to the centre and then started to head off in different directions. We were like magpies...every time something caught our eye we walked towards it. This resulted in us discovering how accessible everything was to our accommodation.

    In all honesty there is no need to take a bus tour around Vienna. The one we did was unimpressive and bottom of the list in regards all the tours I have done. That includes being lower that Barcelona where I fell asleep for an hour of it. All of the main sights are in close proximity to one another so there is no need for the bus as there wasn't much information included from the recorded tour guide. We went from Graben square, to the university to the city hall to the Parliament building to the Holfburg palace and back towards Graben square again all within a couple of hours. That included strolling, taking plenty of shameless selfies and most importantly snack time!! We racked up about 8,000 steps in our stroll around central Vienna.

    Following a rondezvous with Ais we hit the shops and continued with our strolling around. The magnets needed to be purchased and the famous Austrian Mozart chocolate located. We stumbled across a huge department store called Steffl. It reminded me of Brown Thomas and Maceys. Loads of floors with designer gear whereby the ground floor cosmetics are the only thing we could afford to purchase. To our delight it had a sky restaurant on the top floor so we could have our dinner with an idylic view of the Dom and the the cityscape.

    Here I finally I got my hands on vegetables. This has become my ultimate battle every time I am away. Anyone who knows me can attest that I am not the most prevelant vegetable eater but I do eat veggies every day. Austrians love their meat and it is the focal point of every dish. Then you will get rice, potatoes or chips with it. The end!! No veg or if you do it is a small selection of raw red onion with ribs, as was my experience during the week. Madness!! Thankfully in this restaurant there was an Asian option on the menu so I was able to get a vegetable stir fry with meet. Veggie heaven! Despite the random vegetable we couldn't identify.

    For our final night in Vienna we headed to the banks of the Danube. We had initially planned to go the bars by the riverside on Thursday but the thunder and lightening put a stop to that. All along the river they have bars set up with sand to give the impression of a beach. As a landlocked country I suppose you have to go to extreme measures in some cases. We had great fun down there drinking our new favourite drinks, the Hugo. This is a combination of prosecco, mint, lime and elderflower! Delicious!! We will miss them when we leave Austria. We kept forgetting that all the Austrians have excellent English so who knows what they made of our random conversations!!ha I was probably safe though because I was told once again on this trip that I talk very fast!! It had its perks sometimes.

    A quick pitstop in a photobooth finished off our night in a fit of laughter. We were howling trying to all fit into the booth and the picture phrame. We managed it and the result is very entertaining. A perfect evening to finish off a great few days in Vienna!!

    Glühwein Tasting

    December 23, 2017 in Austria

    Nachdem wir gestern noch im Büro gehockt haben, stehen wir heute ganz entspannt mit unserem ersten Glühwein 🥤☕️🍷vor dem Rathaus von Wien. Die Sonne scheint 🌞und der Wind 🌬pfeift uns ganz schön um die Ohren!

    Und im Gegensatz zu Köln ist es leer, keine Menschenmassen, die sich kaputt Trampeln oder hektisch noch die letzten Geschenke 🎁🛍 am 23. Dezember einkaufen müssen. Was für eine Wohltat!

    Da wir für die kommenden Tage hier in Wien nicht wirklich was geplant haben, können wir uns treiben lassen. Also schlendern wir heute über die Weihnachtsmärkte 🎄von Wien und auf jedem haben wir uns vorgenommen einen Glühwein zu trinken 🤪. Ob‘s klappt, mal abwarten!

    Gestartet sind wir am Rathaus, über einen kleinen Kunst/Alternativen Weihnachtsmarkt ging es zum Schloss Belvedere, mit einen Weihnachtsbaum 🎄 aus Schlitten 🛷 bis hin zum Stephansdom und zum guten Schluss gab es noch ein paar Buden irgendwo zwischen zwei Museen. Wo das war, ich hab’s vergessen! 🧐

    Gott sei Dank waren es dann über den Tag verteilt doch nur drei Glühwein, bzw. für mich Orangenpunsch 🍊.

    Wien hat das Tasting noch so gerade bestanden, mit einem gravierenden Minuspunkt! Es ist viel zu teuer! Ein „normaler Glühwein“ kostet mal locker 4,00 € bis 4,50 € 💰- und dafür gibt es nix besonderes!

    Voltio por el centro

    August 22, 2015 in Austria

    Desde la catedral de San Esteban puedes ir dando un paseo por calles peatonales muy bonitas. Hemos visto la iglesia de San Pedro con su cúpula verde, la Escuela de Equitación Española, el museo de Sisí... Todos edificios impresionantes. La ciudad esta llena de museos, así que los han agrupado en el Cuartier Museístico.

    Lo que mas nos ha impresionado es el parlamento, que imita a un templo griego por aquello de que fue allí donde inventaron la democracia (o eso pone la guía, no van a poner que alguien fue a Grecia de viaje y se emocionó). El Ayuntamiento es también un edificio emblemático, aunque no lo hemos visto muy bien porque en agosto proyectan pelis contra la fachada y hay un tingladete de comidas del mundo delante donde nos hemos tomado unas birritas de paulaner hecha de oro.Read more

    Film Festival 2018

    July 22, 2017 in Austria

    Nach dem "Kulturschock" erst mal erholen im Volkspark. Bei einem sauren Radler.

    Die Dame am Ottakringer Stand konnte kaum glauben, das ich das gute Bier "so sehr verdünnt" haben wollte!

    Hier im Volkspark gibt es jedes Jahr kostenloses Kino. Und dazu ein Rahmenprogramm mit Essen und Trinken.
