Visit to Wien written by my son

Hi to my mom's friends! I couldn't wait to write another blog post. Did you read my post from last year? (click HERE) This time I took a longer train ride to Wien, Austria.  I stayed for three days. This post is about just Wien, so I'll call it part one, because I visited other places as well.


I toured the Hofburg Complex which is home to the Austrian National Library, an armor museum, and an instrument museum:



All the armor is so cool:




My Favorite in Wien is Schönbrunn Palace:


I also visited Karlskirche. I got to take an elevator onto a platform inside of the dome!


Another pretty church is Schottenkirche at night:


Taking notes of what I ate. I ate a broth with noodles, carrots, potatoes, and squash. But I only ate a broth because I wanted to eat a special Wien dessert called "Kaiserschmarrn".


Taking a break because my feet were BURNING WITH PAIN from too much walking.

My second favorite place in Wien is Stephansdom. This is the most iconic building in Wien, and probably the best crypt ever. I love creepy things!






Neues Rathaus (New Town Hall) is also where I ate the second food picture:


I have only two food pictures from Wien ;( The first one I'm eating the Schnitzel 


In the next photo I'm eating dumplings with sauerkraut and roasted pork.


And this following wallpaper in a store made me think of my mom. Do you know our plates?



I will also write another post about two other places I visited. If I put Wien on a list of my favorite places I ever visited it would be #3 under #2 Paris and Prague as number one but above Salzburg. Wien also had some very enjoyable food. Here are some food suggestions if you ever go there: of course Wiener Schnitzel and Kaiserschmarn (it means literally translated "Emperor's Nonsense" which I think is funny)

I hope you liked my post because I'm writing another one for next Monday.

Like my mom says "Tschüss" but this time from me.

My love for Würzburg

Alrighty, I have another Germany post! Obviously not working on anything right now and today I will talk more about my favorite German city, Würzburg! I attended school in Würzburg, had my first (most favorite) job and loved the night live which was definitely to my parents dismay...but I had so much fun and I will never forget it. Würzburg will forever have a spot in my heart and I have to visit more than once during my trip. Hey, and shopping isn't bad either which helps.

On our second visit we started with a trip up to the Marienberg Festung another one of my kids favorite castles and we have to see it every time. I'm so glad they have the same taste as me.








As always, I'm taking plenty of photos of fancy old doors. 
Can you believe these were horse stable doors?











The huge furniture store (XXXL Neubert) that I used to work at as a visual merchandiser. It's gotten even bigger! It was fun browsing their inventory (and if you follow me on Instagram then you saw the photos of the copper fixtures I spotted, drool!) and I love thinking back of a fun job that is similar to designing the Ikea rooms, BUT there are so many versatile styles that are different from Ikea. It was the funnest job I ever had for sure and I think back with fond memories.



Würzburg city:


Skeletons are always favorited by my kids:






So many different gorgeous churches! 

Most of Würzburg was destroyed on my dad's 8th birthday in 1945 and it's unbelievable how they were able to rebuild all this history.



And the most gorgeous "Residenz" never gets old either. Can you believe, that under this huge front area are wine cellars? Huge old wine cellars... a dream come true for me ;)


And I will visit Würzburg several more times before flying back to the US, I just have to! If I'd have a pick of any city to live in in Germany, it would be Würzburg. It's not too big, not too small...just right as Goldilocks would say!

If you are getting sick of Germany posts then you have to hang in there for a while but I will be back to DIY posts again for sure ;) 


Tschüß

(Youleeya)
