Weekends are always welcome for an afternoon at the museum. The Belvedere museum is located in Vienna's 3rd district, situated in Baroque palaces. The two palaces (Upper & Lower Belvedere) and the garden are listed as a UNSECO World Heritage Site.

Not all cafeterias at museums offer vegan dishes. That's why I always bring a snack.

The route along the exhibition leads visitors from standard white rooms, film projections rooms and black corners (see above) straight into a Baroque garden room.

|The atmosphere in the hall was just beautiful. I stayed a little longer.|
Time to explore the garden. The unfamiliar location* got me into "exploration-mode".
* Schönbrunn garden is my homebase
|Typical garden bench and best blue sky in ages and unusual plant designs in the background|
|The design. Hm. Ok. I don't get it.|
|Great tit solo, accompanied by a lute.|
|Timeless branches. Some sights never change.|
|The hazy light reminded me of winter afternoons 20, 30 years ago. Not a lot has chanced.|
|Built history. Excellent!|
|As always, I did not take any pictures with my phone. |
"Please, this is 2018. Really. Now. Go and get youself a Smartphone ! !"
In case we've met before, you probably know my answer. My rejection is not coquetry. It's an opinion I've built over time, based upon
# my responsibility I know about the production conditions. Plus the lack of sustainabiliy. My current phone is a keeper.
# the effects The people I see on my way to work, in the street, in shops, at museums etc live under the influence. I love to communicate. Still, I take the liberty to live with a phone, a camera and an outdated agenda.
|The agenda is coming to an end.|
|New edition is in the starting blocks. One |
Unfortunately my outdated lifestyle excludes me numerous instant communication channels. This blog is one way to stay in touch with dear family and friends. Wait. A blog? Seriously? I know. It's 2018 ...
OK. Lets end this with this outlook: We still have the call.
Thank you for being patient and staying in touch!
