Of Desserts and Views
Viennese Moments

Would you rather have
dessert with whipped cream or

enjoy the view of the city
from Prince Eugene's Belvedere?

In Vienna, the living is easy:
You don't have to make hard choices,
you can have both, within the same hour, if must be

The apple cake, served at Restaurant Wetter,
was utterly delicious, and the view from the Belvedere splendid.
The cake's gone, the sphinx is still there

  1. That would have been a difficult choice Merisi, thank goodness it's not necessary :)

  2. I love the Belvedere Gardens and Residence. Such an awesome place. I have been there twice.

  3. I'm not a big fan of desserts. I'd like eggs and sausage

  4. Great! I'll bring my sketchbook when I come.

  5. Looks good - I have to say I wish I had had the chance to travel more in Europe before I moved to Australia. Oh well - maybe next year!

  6. i would need to do a lot of walking to burn off those delicious pastry calories ....

  7. From the inscrutable smile on the sphinx's face she ate it.

  8. Ah yes.... apple cake with whipped cream, and a beautiful view. I'll take both, please.

  9. I can DO without the whipped cream...........but I would DO BOTH!

  10. It's so lovely to come home to your kind comments. Thank you, each and every one. Cheers,

  11. Mmmh let me think, OK both please perhaps a look at the view first so I don't have to rush the tart..
