    1. Thank you, Sylvia!
      Driving to Burgenland and Lake Neusiedl always reminds me of the line Baudelaire's L'invitation au voyage,
      "Là, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
      Luxe, calme et volupté."
      ("There, restraint and order bless
      Luxury and voluptuousness" - translation by Edna St. Vincent Millay - the original feels more soothing in my ears, though :-) )

  5. Merisi, Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving kind words. I love the lacy curtain photographs on your blog. You really captured the lightness of the material. -- Noriko

      I was so taken by the light in the room, I decided to walk back in and ask permission to take the pictures (I was too early for dinner).

    1. Yes, those were a soothing moments, so much quiet beauty, and you must know that on my drive from and back to Vienna, I drove through thick grey fog. So, those moments near and by the lake were like a mirage. Hugs to you xxx
