Travels in photography: Vienna, Austria

Austria at Christmas time. It conjures up the idea of mountains, snow, grey skies, brightly-lit Christmas markets with all sorts of wares, carols sung in front of a cathedral, and the beauty of old European cities.

We were thrilled to discover that Vienna met our expectations in all of these areas. It was cold, but a sharp cold without rain (as one who lives in Scotland, this is a critical point of notice). Most of all it was lovely to just wander the city streets, going where we wanted to go and being surprised around every corner by something new and beautiful that we had never seen.

The birds and ducks were slightly confused, but had fun!

Take a little trip with me into Edinburgh! 

Onto the tram….wander the cobbled streets…into Scran for brunch…down Victoria street and into the shops…past the castle…pop into the Johnnie Walker experience to see the room we’ll be using for our June event…nip up to the rooftop bar of course (rude not to)…and back on the tram and home! 

Such a lovely city to wander and explore. 

Have you been?

Recover. Rest. Reflect.

That’s what I’m doing this weekend - in that order! 

Been a really full week and I’m grateful for so much of it…and now I’m grateful for some headspace.
