I hear people in Vienna are grumpy and indeed they are! In the end it didn’t matter that much though since I had such a great time when visiting Veronika last weekend…I like Vienna a lot and Bratislava was fantastic with the atmosphere and beautiful old city core.
Weather was pretty good.
I had spritze and Asian food in China Bar.
Vero had picked me up and she had her summer dress on!
My plan for the afternoon while waiting for Vero to finnish work.
In the evening we went to Bratislava with the train. It’s only 1 hr and you could even bring the bike on the train. We stayed over at friends of Veronika: Sandra and Michal who were great hosts and Sandra had the same watch as I have!
Their dog woke me up in the morning :).
Then we had a little walk in the city.
My Slovakian friends has started a project building a community garden on a plot between some houses in agreement of the owner of the plot. The idea is that people grew their own vegetables in their box and once they must move away they can bring thier box with them.
Building of a stone path.
Chilling a little bit.
Working some more.
Drinking locally brewed beer.
A narrow alley in Bratislava.
There was also a market in the city with local ecological products like juices and wines.
Back in Vienna with an espresso at Hotel Daniel…
…and a walk in Augarten.
Then we had lunch at a bar by Donaukanal.
Chilling at Steinhof!
and doing the Edelweiss dance.
On Sunday evening we went to the Opera!
Cafe Prickl, it’s brining you to the 50s.
I did not eat here.
I cooked risotto instead.
…with lots of parmesan cheese :).
Vero liked it!
Neat at Vero.

This has been a perfect Sunday starting of with a long breakfast…
Then I met up with Anna, Chris, Archie and Sally for a very long walk in the sun (first time sunglasses on 2013!) around Södermalm.
Sally hiding under Archie :). First time I saw this little cute creature!
Not first time I saw this cute creature though, Anna!
Chris and Archie had fun on the ice…
…and some where chillaxing.
So did Archie after the long play.
Now it is nice to be home under the warm blanket with a book for once :).
After nearly 9 months in my new hometown Stockholm I came back to Amsterdam, finally! It was great to see all my friends again! It wont take another 9 months before I visit again. This time it was freezing cold and “snow storm” (at least if the Dutch may decide), so next time I will come in spring time.
Funenpark covered in snow.
Brouwerij ‘t IJ!
Saturday night dinner at Hannekes Boom.
Laura at Hannekes Boom.
Anna as well.
Sunday dinner with Ana and Parm at the Spanish restaurant Mercat in the old Panama building.
Lunch at Cantine with Anja before getting stuck in the train to Schiphol. Taxi it was.
See you next time Amsterdam and Amsterdammers!
