In New Zealand these would sell very well, I imagine… I looked at my pictures from last year’s celebration, and realised they’re just a blur… Much crappier than this, even! So, happy new year everyone! Let’s hope it’s a good one!
This is the paper that EVERYONE reads in the morning when on the way to work. Hell, I even read it from tome to time. It’s not really a quality paper, but it’s free, and is very handily located all over town. Especially at subway stations. So sometimes in the morning if I’ve got nothing else to read I’ll grab a copy. What I find most interesting is the gossip about the local politicians and celebs, partly because I’m still trying to figure out who is who in the city! Also nice to keep up to date on events that are going on and sport results.
I’m still at home, with limited internet access (to say the least) and diminishing appetite.. I think I’ve eaten almost anything that I’ve missed throughout the year during the last week! One week to go, less eating scheduled.. 😛
When the moon is full like today, I like to go for walks in Prater. Actually, I spend a lot of time in Prater, going for walks. So I should really show you more of it. Here you can see the lights from the Hauptallee shining through the trees as a white line, and the moon shining bright. Prater is relatively safe, and on the weekends (or maybe even full time now) there are no cars allowed. So, all the space in the world to go rollerblading, biking, anything on wheels, as well as paths to go running and nordic walking. It’s nice to have a green area to visit that’s not that far away. 🙂
According to Wikipedia:
Schönbrunn Palace (German: Schloss Schönbrunn [ʃøːnˈbʁʊn]) is a former imperial 1,441-room Rococo summer residence in modern Vienna, Austria. One of the most important cultural monuments in the country, since the 1960s it has been one of the major tourist attractions in Vienna. The palace and gardens illustrate the tastes, interests, and aspirations of successive Habsburg monarchs.
I like coming out here. This was the first time that I’ve gone up on the hill behind the castle. 🙂
