I love this little place. It’s tucked away neatly under the hill between Kahlenberg and Leopoldsberg, and it’s just as cozy as you could get it.
There is a great view over the Danube. and the 21st and 22nd district of Vienna.
They also have people coming round with snacks that are just unbelievable. I would have eaten all of this (possibly in one go) if I weren’t on my one year without chocolate quest.
After spending most of the evening up there, we went down to Kahlenbergerdorf to catch the bus back. As we had to wait a good while, we decided to check out the river, and the sunset. Seeing as my phone was dead I ordered my friend Eleni to take this photo.
The best day.
Yesterday I was told that a Danish man opened a candy store in the 19th district called Candymeister, where he sells a lot of Scandinavian candy in loose weight. About half an hour later I was on my way there. It was awesome – some 300 different sweets to choose between. I was also surprised not to get ripped off, seeing as all the stuff (or most of it) is imported from Denmark and Sweden. The store is easy to find right on Döblinger Hauptstrasse where the 37 tram goes past, there is a stop right outside his door, actually.
Just passing Weingut Wailand on my walk up to work this morning. Was awesome to see the sun, for a change!
Cute bike I saw at Heiligenstadt. I’m quite sad that the bicycle season is coming to an end… I’ve been sick the last three weeks, so have missed the very end of it. Now they’re already promising snow for tomorrow, so let’s see!
Autumn is coming really fast this year, seeing as we’ve had such a long and unusually warm summer. So now nature is fast-tracking it. My instinct has also kicked in, and I’ve started knitting… I’ll try to get some nice autumn shots before all the leaves have fallen in the days to come. This one is from the canal in the third district.
From spring until Autumn, there are what I call ‘berry ladies’ all over town, selling fruit and veges (and sometimes also really awesome mushrooms and snaps) that are made in Austria. This one is selling stuff from the Digles farm. The fact that she is still here at the subway station in Heiligenstadt goes to show that this autumn is really nice and warm! Today we had about 11 degrees, which is the coldest it has been for almost half a year… When she disappears, which must be soon, that means that it’s truly autumn!
On some point if spending some time in Vienna, you are likely to see a smoking ash tray.. people here smoke like chimneys, and seeing as the ‘smoking law’ is quite accommodating to smokers, you cannot find many young people that are not partysmokers, if not full time smokers. Sometimes the cigarette buds in the ashtrays catch on fire, and then you have these smoking ash trays.
