After my rather sensory-overloaded post about Tunis, I’m sharing something on the quieter, more winter-ish side this time: We’re experiencing a rather harsh winter this year and not often you get the opportunity to walk or ice-skate on a natural frozen lake. Last week I did a little excursion to nearby Neusiedlersee, a favourite relaxation destination for us Viennese (see also here) . It was a spontaneous idea and therefore I was on my own, however I really enjoyed the peace the vast, wide scenery offered and seeing the people enjoying all kinds of activities on the ice (my activity was playing with the remote control of my camera as you can see). The lighthouse of Podersdorf was a brilliant photo spot but he icing on the cake was the postcard-perfect sunset that dipped the sky into warm colour tones reflected by the lake. Though it was really pretty, it was freezing cold and my fingers and toes got totally numb… After an hour I had enough and left 😉
Winter isn’t so bad, isn’t it?
