Schneefall in Wien
Sunday 13th December. Snow starting to fall in Vienna. The weather has been very cold for the past few days. Yesterday I nearly froze, we went out for a walk at Stephansplaz and went to Ikea in north of vienna. The city centre was crowded with tourist and punters out to do their shopping. X’mas season is in the air Christmas tree of your choices on sale, ready to be picked up, gluwine, streets filled with x’mas decoration.
Today, we when to the Advent Market at Scholss Schrubrun. Arrived there around 1800hr, snowflake was falling from the sky. It must had been around 0C as my feet felt quite numb. Other parts of my body was ok as I learnt my lesson from being ‘underdress’ yesterday. The market was crowded, choir was singing and children running everywhere. I love it. The atmosphere was just great, the whether could have been slightly warmer.
After a cup of gluwine, some Kartoffelsuppe, hot chocolate and some Pommes Frites I feel better but my feet was still numb. We walked around admiring the local craftwork. The boys (A and Ake) finally foundwhat they wanted and help themself to some fresh krapfen.
We stood around sinking in the atmosphere until we fell quite numb. The temperature dropped further to -4C. We thought then that
it was time to go home..
