The Naschmarkt, Vienna

Have you missed me? We've been away for an absolutely wonderful short break in Vienna. The weather was glorious - sunny and warm, but not too hot for sightseeing, and armed with our Vienna cards, which give you 72 hours unlimited use of public transport, we saw lots, did lots and ate lots. One day we spent at the Belvedere, taking in the gardens and the art exhibitions - especially the Klimt, as his work always appeals to the crafter in me - and another day we took a bus out into the hills  of the Vienna Woods.

But the best experience for any food lover visiting Vienna is the Naschmarkt, a double line of permanent market stalls specialising in foods of all kinds from the relatively mundane to the exotic, with a third line of bars, caf├ęs and restaurants along one site, which stretches for around a mile along one of the city streets. I'll stop wittering now and let the photos speak for themselves......

Hello, I am just joining in the craft room group and I am surprised seeing together cards and foods! I love cards (yours!), I love eating but I hate cooking!
Very good job! Such a super blog!
Have a good day
