So I spent another week abroad. This time I went to Vienna, a city that I count among my favorites despite the fact that I had only been there once before, over a decade ago.
The foremost goal of the trip was to explore Christmas markets, which parts of former German and Austrian empires do like no others. I could not, of course, stay away from exploring some places that I have not seen before, most importantly a few World Heritage-listed destinations. Nor could I bypass revisiting some of the previously seen sights.
I clearly overestimated my tolerance for being outside in the cold weather – which means that I spent disproportional amount of time drinking coffee and people-watching in the relative warmth of cafés, as opposed to strolling around with my camera at the ready. Nonetheless, I brought back a sufficient number of photographic material for a few essays. They’ll come to these pages in good time, as always.
Happy Holidays to all!
