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.
Man, another heat wave and I am desperate for cooler temperatures. How do people survive living in the tropics! This week brings promises of temperatures over 35 degrees every day… And we’re going camping on the weekend!! Ugh…. I sure hope we won’t overheat in the tent.
The only sane thing to do is to go swimming.
Popped in to say hello this morning, but didn’t get many answers.
There were ppl there though, tending to one of the graves.
There is also a nice chapel here, but I didn’t want to disturb the living. So, if you are up on Kahlenberg and like small old graveyards, I can recommend coming here. ☺
Some day I’ll try out one of the city cruises. I quite like the look of this one, which was renovated and painted by Hundertwasser himself.
I never promised you a rose garden, but here’s one anyway!
Across from the parliament in/next to Volksgarten there is a very nice garden, and I finally passed through it yesterday.
A tiny bit of Greece in Vienna. 😀
It’s a lovely garden, and popular judging by the number of people there yesterday. U hope you all had a lovely weekend!!
