I have been told that Santa lives in Lappland …. so one of his little helpers must be living in Vienna.
The other day I got the most well packed parcel ever … full of goodies, lovely card and a really treasure; a Swedish blue luggage tag from Louis Vuitton, with my initials in yellow or maybe it’s gold. Can’t be a better match to my very Swedish blue/yellow heart.
And also without a doubt the best Marzipan in the world, Niederegger, made in Lübeck. And those rumkugeln I started on so soon I managed to open the parcel. Both Santa’s little helper and I love our marzipan.
Dia@HaapyFace313 and I met for the first time in real life, August-14 – a boiling hot Sunday … and we found a friendship straight away.
So now when I visit Vienna a couple of weeks ago, was it time again for a girly day out that started with a Vienna Breakfast at Cafe Landtmann – with a bit of bubble togehter with a belated birthday cake (for me) with the whole show with candles. And of course a lot of talk and more talk for hours.
After that we walked through the city … and a visit to Albertina Art Museum – that have a show of the Norwegian painter, Edvard Munch’s art. He was a very dark soul and very troubled … which shows very clearly in his art. A bit too dark and depressing for my taste, but there was highlights too.
I’m more a Monet-girl. *smile – so we re-visited their “Monet to Picasso” exhibition again.
After a couple of arty hours was it time for food again, something we really have in common. I just love people that enjoy food!!! After a bit of difficulties where to eat and what to eat, it wasn’t like we didn’t have anything to choose from. Only that we really didn’t want to end up on a place with only tourists and we landed in a very nice Italian restaurant, Fiorenzano.
We enjoyed our Cabonnara very much and … the dessert was the cream on the mash, a cinnamon parfait. Fantastic ending on a brilliant day with in the company of Santa’s little helper.
Since we became blogging sisters have we talked about taking a Transatlantic cruise with Cunard Line together from Hamburg to New York – a couple of days in New York and fly back home. We both are putting our faith and wishes into the Euro Lottery … if we don’t play we can’t win.
So, Dear Santa, help us out and manipulate a little with those balls!!!!!!
