I know I have just written about being back and I’m off again?! But this time only for a very short week. Ok, ok maybe maximum 10 days. I think I’m addicted to making travel plans.
After four months on the road I really need a serial cultural immersion. Some exquisite art exhibitions. Some high end restaurants. Some fashion and a glass of beautiful dry red. Or better two.
I love my adventures on the road. Trekking in the mountains. Being lost in national parks and interacting with locals. I love visiting rural villages and eat local food but I’m helplessly addicted to art, culture, opera, amazing food and red. After all ‘the big city Girl’ is still in me.
My European travel plans:
“Paris was a universe whole and entire unto herself, hollowed and fashioned by history.” ― Anne Rice, Interview with the Vampire
Yes, Paris it is. Just for few days. It was without a doubt that I will start in Paris, I always do. To try some delicious dishes prepared be a talented Japanese chef I have heard so much about, to enjoy dinner in La Tour d’Argent. To check out photographies by Claude Simon, in my favourite Centre Pompidou, will be a real treat for my culture-starved mind.
“Vienna wasn’t just a city, it was a tone that either one carries forever in one’s soul or one does not. It was the most beautiful thing in my life.” ― Sándor Márai, Embers
Mid week is devoted to Vienna and I feel like I own you a little explanation why?! Having a proper coffee was a huge challenge. No, it is not about lack of cooking water. Let me only say, tea is a king in the region I have been travelling in.
And lets be honest I never say NO to a good opera, La Boheme by Puccini is on stage!
“How wrong Emily Dickinson was! Hope is not “the thing with feathers.” The thing with feathers has turned out to be my nephew. I must take him to a specialist in Zurich.” ― Woody Allen, Without Feathers
I will finish with a week in Zurich catching up with the famous Miss Champagne and Mr Banker and many other friends. I will indulge in some art of course as 150 Master Prints by Edvard Munch are on show. But frankly I have a feeling it will be a ‘big night out’ every night ha ha ha Details and pictures will follow I promise.
Even though I have visited each of those cities so many times that I lost count. I’m sure there will be something new, interesting or annoying to tell you, my dear reader, about.
“Veni, vidi, vici. (I came, I saw, I conquered.)” ― Julius Caesar
After that I’m officially scheduled to be back home, but I have no return ticket yet, so stay tuned. There are few destinations on my mind. And Zurich airport has many intriguing connections every day, so stay tuned with my travel plans. Maybe Rome?! :)
