Irgendwann wird es auch mir zuviel in den eigenen vier Wänden. Da war nach dem Lock-Down klar: Auf zum See! Der Neusiedlersee ist mein liebster Ausflugsort, wenn es einmal heißt ein paar Stunden durchzuatmen, eine kurze Auszeit zu nehmen.
Sometimes you choose another road on the same tour, and then you find yourself in the middle of something you never recognized before. We really should open our eyes more often.
Hubertus Hohenlohe presented his latest artworks recently at the viennese Museum of the 21. Century (21er Haus). The exclusive photo shoot was arranged by Eveline Eselböck – delegate of Relais & Châteaux Austria, Northern and Eastern Europe – for the campaign REVIVE, which will start an exhibition-tour through ten houses of the hotel group in summer 2015, reflecting the essence of hospitality and slow hosting.

I can’t believe that it took me so long to explore this miracle of architecture on the third largest church of the world.
And I could have stayed there for hours, but as it was a daytrip, and we decided to have some true italian shopping and a bit dolce far niente with dolci too.
And off we were to have a walk through the romantic streets of Brera. Of course it had to be a scarf, but as we were in Italy I didn’t want to buy a french one. It should be a well crafted handmade italian one.
So what would be better than visit the Faliero Sarti boutique? And it didn’t take me long to make the decision. Still fascinated by the aging stone and marble shades of the Cathedral it had to be this one:
