As much as I love a colorful life, I have this thing with natural stone like sandstone or all shades of gray in granite. I can’t stop taking pictures of architecture details, when on holidays. Let’s be honest, not only on holidays!Trenchcoat-Season is around the corner, and as weird as it may seem, this piece of clothing always combines holiday memories with interior design for me. Funny enough, I never think of rain, when seeing a nude colored trench. Sadly I still didn’t find that wow-effect Investment piece of this classic coat, but I have 2 which I really like to wear. The one that will blow my mind, when looking in the mirror is on The-List.

But not to worry, investment pieces are things that can’t be bought within the blink of an eye. I know that, and I have some experience in that kind of shopping. Not being an impulse shopper helps here a lot, and having a look into my drawers makes me always smile, because I love each and every piece I have at home. The fact, that I bought many things abroad, brings back happy memories whenever I choose to wear one of this little treasures. Continue reading

Viennese Phrases to know: Fiaker

My favorite shot of the week: White Fiaker Horses in the city center of Vienna on Michaelerplatz infront of the entrance of our majestic Hofburg. A thing every tourist should have in his photo album when leaving Vienna: Fiaker and viennese architecture.

I am living in Vienna, so buying a ride on a Fiaker is not a usual thing for residents. But I had the pleasure once, and I remember, I felt very special in the carriage. It is kind of that ‘princess for a day’ moment.

But what is a ‘Fiaker’?

A Fiaker is a horse-drawn four-wheeled carriage for hire. You will find some at any touristic corner of Vienna. In the 19. century there were about 1000 horse-carriages available, while today only about 10%-15% are offered for hiring. You can book your ride online in advance. I would recommend checking prices and carriage, when in Vienna. Regular Tour-Prices start at 90 Euros for 40 minutes for up to 4 people per carriage.

Sunset WU Campus Vienna

A few photographs from my last visit at the WU Campus and short update. Yes, I still love walks in the beautiful area full of amazing modern architecture. And I still like to visit the Campus Restaurant. Indian summer is around the corner and short City walks are even more beautiful during earlier sunsets.
