With my work coming to an absolute peak nowadays, I’m actually not venturing out much. Or doing much of anything else but work.. and as I’m sure you would not enjoy pictures of my laptop, my cup of tea, the view through my window, and the pile of papers on my desk, I have stepped down from daily posting. I may still post whenever I do something outside… I promise to return once my degree is complete, even if that is three months away. Please forgive me!
Update: I passed my final big test on Friday 24/7, and am now aiming to finish the degree by October this year. It’s been a LONG journey, I can say that much!! And it’s still not over…
Never seen seats luke this before…
Was walking to work on my last day, and I saw a lot of leaves on the ground. It struck me that maybe autumn wants to come this year too? We have had such a long summer this year, so it kind of feels like it won’t ever end. Hmm.

So, this blog is about Vienna, so I won’t do a lot of posts from my holiday. But a few… I’ve spent the last week in my hometown and surrounding areas.
I saw much of it from the air when I flew in from Prague.
And I’ve had some relaxing days with my folks. PhD is a country far away from here. So while I am here I am on holiday.
Blurry evening shot of Husnes. The moon was very bright last night.
Today I visited the gardens of the castle in Rosendal.
I do so like this place. Roses are my favourite.
It’s been great fooling around with my phone.
Putting the newly acquired selfie stick to good use!
I hope you are all enjoying the last of summer! In a few days I am back in Vienna. I’ll miss all this.
And living life like these guys…
Hodonin is a small town close to the Slovak border, not far away from Austria. I have to admit there us not much going on there, so I wouldn’t visit the city (or town, it’s got about 20 000 people) for the sake of it. But, it does have an annual metal festival. And that’s why we started our holiday there.
We spent a very hot weekend on a field just out of town.
Facilities were ok, and considering that there were only 6000 people at the festival it still had a very good vibe, and people were friendly.
Now, the journey goes on to Norway for a week to visit the folks. :-)
Somehow it’s a bit cooler on the grass. Today was 38 degrees, tomorrow it’s supposed to get hotter…. O.o
We luckily don’t get too much smog over Vienna but today there definitely was a brown layer over the city. It made me feel happy that I’m working out of town. :-) I hope it will disappear soon!
Schwarzenbergplatz is boiling in the heat. Even the tourists seem to be in hiding in this weather.
