I glamorized myself in anticipation of smooching you.

Budapest is lovely. Have you been to Prague?

Yes. Prague is incredibly beautiful when it snows.

It's funny to see this thread come back to life after so long. It's good to see it generating some talk.

I see some people didn't see the cheeky reference to this old post:

Re: Impressions of Vienna

Golden oldie thread revisit.

Where are they all now?

Anyway, Viennese seem to wear a lot of layers in a 'never cast a clout til May is out' style. Lots of people wearing scarfs. Then again weather forecasts seem to be useless. Again I saw more long raincoats than in London and - lo and behold - it rained later in the day.

Very nice city. Ignore Grosgrain comments. Secure feeling too. Compared to say Paris or a German city.

I read about Hapsburgs but it never dawned on me just how much wealth they actually had. Wonderful palaces and works of art. Also the various churchs are an absolute delight.

I don't get the coffee and cake thing.

Nor do I have a great fondness for the wurst stands.

However, the beers were great and the bars and beisls offered great value hearty food. Too much for me to finish and I have a good appetite.

Definitely a city to return to.

Re: Impressions of Vienna

Ahh, the Hapsburgs.

I love all the former ruling dynasties - Hapsburgs, Cennedy, and the Vindsors of course.

Plachutta is worth a visit, too, and Bristol and Sacher hotels for food. Avoid the new Mandarin Oriental.
