    1. Mary, I have not seen the Lipizzan stallions in action yet. I am afraid they would not allow cameras. ;-)

    1. I fell in love with Burgenland the first time I visited there, after moving to Vienna. It's seven years now, and if anything, I love it even more.

    1. If I would have to visit each and every coffeehouse on my way, I would get anywhere (and if one would get drunk from drinking coffee, I'd be a bum, living under a Danube bridge). ;-)

    2. This coffeehouse is located in the St. Michael's Wing, next to the gate with the beautiful verdigris dome, i.e. part of the Imperial Palace (Hofburg - literally Court Castle - as it is called in Vienna).

  4. Merisi, The photo of the cup and saucer with the water glass looks like a carefully crafted painting. I love it.
