PhotoFriday – Home for Christmas

Opening the door in February, this is what met the eye. Same today. The kids are out making a snow sphinx; a typical first day of Christmas!

Vienna Christmas Markets

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

Last Friday, I wrote a guest post for the wonderful Europe a la Carte blog about Vienna’s Christmas markets. In the article I listed a few of the markets. I haven’t seen them all yet – and the one at Spittelberg features high on my to-see list. It looks very cosy there in the narrow alleys.

Vienna is always elegant, but especially during advent. I adore the Christkindlmarkt in front of Rathausplatz (City Hall). It’s so colourful and lively. It’s also full of children, because City Hall hosts a fabulous children’s workshop, the Christkindl Werkstatt. With rosy cheeks, all flush with excitement, they run inside to make wonderful homemade Christmas pressies and to have heaps of fun.

Scandinavian and North Atlantic plans

Thursday, February 5th, 2009
I wish I could write South Atlantic plans. Those include the Falklands, Tristan da Cunha, St Helena and several bits of Antarctica. But these are still in the vaguer goal-stage, not yet in actual plans. The North Atlantic is far ... [Continue reading this entry]
