Leading up to Christmas I’m sure that there are many who wish that they could take care of their errands to the post office during the weekend. And it just so happens that there is a place for us to go here in Vienna if we need a post office late on Saturday or on Sunday!
The opening hours at the post office on Fleischmarkt are much more customer friendly than we are used to from our local post office. It’s just up from the subway on Schwedenplatz. 🙂
Happy birthday to my blog! Because I failed selfie-school the picture is blurry, but it is related to the post I published earlier today. 🙂 Here’s to another year of Vienna blogging!
Just out on a little ride with my bike. It’s beautiful out there today!
Postmen are quite yellow in Vienna. The first time I saw someone with one of these babies, I seriously thought they had it pretty rough. But then, comparing them to other countries where they often have to carry the load in a bag or whatnot, actually they should be relatively cofortable. I think these trolleys can carry quiiite a bit of weight. So if I ever have to move homes without a car, I’ll see about nicking one of these 😛
These things are popping up all over town! In the upcoming referendum, Viennese citizens can post their votes in such stands. Some background:
Last time the people of Austria were asked whether they wanted a professional or a national army. This happened in January.. and the people said they wanted to continue the national army. But for the Viennese, the voting is not over yet… In March, they have to vote once again, to give their opinion on four questions which has been discussed in local politics for a while:
– Parkpickerl: Residental parking area – should this be expanded to some districts or not?
– Olympia: Should Vienna apply to get the summer olympics in 2028?
– Privatisation protection: Should local enterprises provide important services to the Viennese, such as water supply and sewerage services, waste disposal, energy supply, hospitals, municipal housing, and public transport be protected from privatisation?
– Renewable energy: Should the city develop further renewable energy projects following the example of the citizens´ solar power plants, which are co-financed by members of the population?

The consequence of living in a country that’s spelt almost the same way as Australia…
