Spring has sprung here in Vienna and somehow the first quarter of the year is over – time is flying, even so not a lot is happening!
For the last two weeks, the lovely smell of wild garlic is hanging over the Prater and yesterday I saw the very first blooming cherry blossoms. The days are longer again, the windows are open and I am listening to the sounds from below.
I remember how quiet it was outside one year ago and how I was waiting for these few sounds to remind myself that there were still other people out there. Vienna is entering Lockdown 4, hopefully, it will be the last one and vaccinations will be become quicker and quicker. Fingers crossed!
I remain optimistic and continue to plan my Scottish Summer – the one I rolled over to this year from last one.
I am planning to explore Shetland, Orkney, Assynt (see picture above), Ullapool, Lewis & Harris and Skye with a few days of Edinburgh and Glasgow at the beginning and the end. Fingers crossed it will be possible this year, but I am hopeful!
Until then I will continue my daily walks around Vienna and exploring my hometown even more and more. It is a good time to visit museums (when they are a open) and other usually tourist places as they are pretty empty.
Have a great April and be healthy! Or like we say in Vienna: “G´sund bleibn!”
