  1. absolutely so makes me so sad that i'll have to just imagine being in vienna this summer..we had to postpone our trip...i'll just have a virtual vacation with you!

  2. Savannah,
    I love to make virtual vacations with you. :-)
    Btw, early fall or Christmas are also beautiful here.

  3. Such grand buildings, Merisi!
    And the way you capture them makes them even grander!

    It seems at every turn there is a beautiful scene awaiting you!
    I especially liked the post on Cafe Hawelka.
    Do you have any really ugly photos of Vienna?

  5. That cake is absolutely incredible! Something for a daring baker challenge! So many beautiful photos here! Marco's flew to Vienna early this morning, he will be back late tomorrow night, hopefulle with a real Sachertorte!

  6. Hahaha...I like letitia's suggestion of posting some ugly photos. Although I am sure you would make even those look good ;)

    Letitia, I would cry all the way home, if I'd have to leave Vienna right away. I have barely scratched the surface!
    I will look through my archive, searching for some not so pretty sights. Almost hopeless, though (would you please write the Major of Vienna, that I said so? *laugh*).

    Daring baker?
    (Usually, when I see a cake like this, I'd assume it is inedible, but with Demel's, I'm sure its fingerlicking good *g*).

    You got it right, beauty is my calling (and then again, I might just find that naughty streak in me, somewhere, if I only try hard enough ... *smile*).


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
