Leading up to Christmas I’m sure that there are many who wish that they could take care of their errands to the post office during the weekend. And it just so happens that there is a place for us to go here in Vienna if we need a post office late on Saturday or on Sunday!
The opening hours at the post office on Fleischmarkt are much more customer friendly than we are used to from our local post office. It’s just up from the subway on Schwedenplatz. :)
We’re staying here for Christmas this year, and I want to have a nice tree (of the kind that has pine needles, and not my birch fig as in the past). But, I don’t have much in the way of tree decorations, so today I went to Caritas on Mittersteig to check out what they had. They have a lot!! And pretty affordable too. The selection you see above is what I ended up bringing home with me, admittedly some of them came in bundle bags where I wasn’t all that sure what was inside, but I’m pretty happy with it. The above haul cost 13 Euro altogether. AND, as a bonus I’m also supporting Caritas by shopping there. I save money, I give to charity, everyone is happy. :P (Except my partner who is worried that I’m going to over decorate the flat). Five weeks to go people!! Are you ready yet? ;)
Not all of the plants have given up yet :-)
So the weather is not the best these days. Today it’s pouring down. I took this with my phone at Kaisermühlen outside the Vienna International Centre, just because it reminded me of the black tower. :-D
