Here I am, returning to my homebase: the good, old reliable blog.
I have been exploring the world of Social Media and I've enjoyed twitter. BUT: in the end it's always the blog which serves as an excellent archive, contrary to twitter, when searching for a certain photo, forwarding stories to friends or browsing through memories.
This blog has always served as a "Best of", at least to me. No matter how outdated blogging is in 2016, it feels right to pick it up and continue where I stopped.
Speaking of favourite places: a few weeks ago I went down South, the lake disctrict in Carinthia is just 330 km from Vienna.

|Evening swim after a hot day at the literature festival. Lake Afritz, Carinthia, Austria|
During the vacation the "40th Festival of German-Language Literature" happened to take place in Klagenfurt.
Very entertaining. Readings and the following discussions, seriously: big time entertainment. The festival takes place at the regional broadcasting studio and outside, in the garden in front of the studio building.

|Reading and re-reading at the beach the following days|
|Exclusive beaches in July (high season starting 2 weeks later)|
|The Wörthersee (Lake Wörth) is famous for ....|
|... its bright turquois water.|
|Happy people, nothing to complain about :-)|
The following photo demonstrates the wide range of colours and character those lakes in Carinthia provide: from tropical water (Wörthersee, above) to emerald green, mountainous forest lakes, such as Lake Vassach in Villach:
