Lunch on the frozen Lake

Out Of ToWn

Cold but breathtaking scenery. Wearing Chaines & Gourmettes Hermès Scarf wrapped with a second Wool Shawl.

After an hour of fun ice skating on the frozen lake,

a beauiful table at Mole West was waiting for Us.

One of my favorite Places at the Flat Lake.

Mole West never disappoints and always delivers good quality food.

13. Wedding Anniversary

Out Of ToWn

We must have one or two things in common, otherwise we would not have celebrated our 13. Wedding Anniversary last week. In Austria and Germany the classic gifts for that day are crystal, flowers: violet and lily of the valley and salt, but not so much lace as in other countries. The sweetest tradition of all is that the couple should turn their back on everything and steal away secretly for that day. And that’s what we did. After giving each other different flowers, some of them sweet: Violet blossom leaves candied in sugar (I love them, esp. from Demel), we drove to Neusiedler See – (Lake Neusiedl) a little bit more than a half an hour ride from Vienna and had lunch in the middle of wineries. In the afternoon we had coffee on a terrasse at the Lake. It was a very romantic Hidaway and we were blessed with wonderful sunny weather.

I chose my Hermès ‚Crown‘ Vintage Style Silk Scarf, because it was a present from a previous wedding anniversary and used the very first ring I got from my DH long before any of us was thinking of marriage.

Today wearing ... Cheval de Legende

Windows of Bratislava

You may get a bit of a sinking feeling when you first see Bratislava especially when it is raining cats and dogs like during my last visit. Instead of a slovak version of Prague or Vienna you will discover a small, busy city that seems to embody the Communists‘ blind faith in modernity.

Hrad. The Castle has been continually rebuilt since its foundations were laid in the 9th century and after a disastrous fire in 1811. Inside you will find the Slovak National Museum with exhibits on furniture, crafts and costumes. If you are interest please do not try on Mondays like I did as it is closed then.

To discover the Old Town you have to do so by foot. When it comes to food, you can thank your lucky stars that you are in Bratislava. Prepare for a variety of the best Restaurants and Cafés. I had one of my best lunches in the ‚Camouflage‚.
