ΜΕΡΟΣ Γ - μια βόλτα Βιέννη σχετικά με ένα θερμό Κυριακή

Έτσι, θα συνεχιστούν δική μας ιστορία σχετικά με ένα υγρό Κυριακή το πρωί.

Nα δούμε το άγαλμα με τέσσερα πόδι.

δύο σύζυγοι Περιστέρι θαυμάζω τα τριαντάφυλλα

Mια όμορφη ladybird θέτει τη δική μου κεκλεισμένων των θυρών

Kάτι από τον πόλεμο

Υπάρχουν τόσα πολλά διωρύγων και ποταμών εδώ ότι βρισκόμαστε σχεδόν στη Βενετία!

Στην τελευταία MRSLv2 μου επέτρεψε μια λίγο ποτού του οίνου!

Vilting in Wienna Part 2ish

We stumbled on more evidence of Hundertwasser and the thermal energy plant that he designed - a beautiful art deco man hole cover.
Speaking of which we spotted the thermal energy plant as we crossed the Donaukanal.
The red traffic light design appears to have taken little heed of the preachings of Flann O'Brien*.
The rear wall of the Hunterwasser museum reminded me of my kitchen floor back home.

*obscure reference to the Third Policeman.

Veekend in Wien Part 1

The weekend precipitation risk seemed high as the Airbus banked over the Danube to land at Vienna.

The view from MRSLv2's flat confirmed that there were in fact clouds in the sky.

We take an evening stroll as I marvel that Hundertwasser at least partially saved the Austrian car registration plates from EU conformity.

The next morning we took a stroll in the direction of MRSLv2's workplace and discovered that the little park that we are walking through is in fact a major area of risk and prohibition.

It would seem that that there is a further issue with dog poop.At least the S bahn driver sees an almost smiley face on his way to Heiliginstadt.
We stumbled across a novel way to park small cars.

As the blisters developed on our feet we ventured onto the marvellous public transport system - bicycles and dogs appear to be welcome.Emerging into the sunshine we see pedimentary statuary that the Temple of Athena would die for.

Thunderspritzen Blight

No worthy petrol based event held in May in Cheshire can possibly avoid the attentions of the Leyland Morris "men": Nikos attributes this menace to the ever pervading health and safety culture that is afflicting British society.

Thundersprint Donner

I discover that I'm parked in the Thundersprint cavalcade paddock in sequence with number 291! The thunderous yet mellifluous sound of over 200 motorcycle engines still rings in the ears...

Multitasking Made Easy

This is what happens when you cook and read email. The content of Clive's email was not good news either...

Knutsford Mayday

Meet the neighbours - it's the Mayday parade!

The First Tomtom Confutation of Spring

I'm on my way towards Cheshire and I change my route to visit Coventry to drop my seat off for height reduction at Swindling Melvyn's. This turns out to confuse Tomtom who then directs me up the M6 Toll rather than A515. In my attempt to recover I cross the Coventry canal at least twice, the Mersey and Trent once and inspect at least three dreary townsworths of confusing one way systems complete with learner drivers and Aldis by the dozen. I celebrate the discovery of the A515 at Kings Bromley with a layby tea. The Cat and Fiddle pass proves tricky with gusting wind and driving rain - Tomtom confuses again at Macclesfield (Garmin only knows where she is trying to take me) but luckily I'm familar with the run in to Knutsford - Northwich will wait until Sunday.

Madeira Comestibles

Two of these went down a treat: The other did not.

Funchal Flowers by Night

I can thoroughly recommend Rainwater (Blandys 3 year old). Oops - that will be in the next blog entry.

Strangeness on the Flight to Madeira

I don't know about you dear reader but I find it good to fly to a new place on the national carrier to gain some insight into the local culture*.
So far then 30 minutes into the flight, the Portugese physique is that of a disjointed plasticine pin man (thus rendering the life jacket useless) and the diet consists mainly of hot dogs...

*Some exceptions include Nigeria and Turkey
