I feel really naked when I don’t have my phone. I actually mostly blog with my phone, both using the camera and the WordPress app to post new posts. But today, my phone is at home, and I am at work. Which means, when I’m on the move today I won’t be able to snap photos/post them. Eeeeeek!!
So this is one from the archive. The potential consequences of a night out in Vienna. I do know this person. Hopefully we are still friends after this post comes out. 😀
I’ll pick up my phone later, before going out for Halloween shenanigans. Should be fun, even though I’m still not fully recovered.
This is incidentally one of my favourite little bars along the canal.. only open when it’s warm. It’s totally relaxed/laid back. Can be found on the western side of the canal by the Franzensbrücke.
Donauinselfest is a weekend full of bands, partying, family fun and everything nice, in the middle of the Danube in Vienna. On the Danube Island, of course. I’ve sadly missed the last three, but the one I did manage to go to was awesome. We found this place, which served punch from massive funny-looking glasses. That made the day. 🙂
Today was the first day that I could face cycling halfway to work again, seeing as the temperature crept up over 10 degrees celcius. It felt great! As I was going home I saw that several others also enjoyed this burst of Spring, and along the canal small cafes have opened already. But not Buho Verde… it burned down about one year ago, and since then it’s been floating on the water, reminding people of the cute little party scene that it was once. I like it somehow. The burned out structure is really cool. 🙂
Incidentally, here are some pictures from the fire itself, which was also quite beautiful…
Tomorrow I’m cheating again, taking you on a very short two-day trip to Prague!! It’s much closer than Innsbruck, and thus a very manageable weekend-destination from Vienna. 🙂
Happy Halloween! Even though this isn’t America, the conditions for celebrating Halloween are ideal in Austria. November 1 is a public holiay here, so you’re always free the day after! Funny to think then thatn the way that Halloween is celebrated today is really only a recent import. Or well, maybe it’s not that funny.. but in any case, parties are in abundance on this day. Here is the party I went to yesterday in the 8th District. 🙂 I hope you all had a great time too!
