the kiss

Two days in Wien are not enough 
to see even a little part of this spectacular city.

While my husband is busy in meetings, I'm going sightseeing.
I've just got back from the Belvedere and literally had my jaws dropped looking at the infinite details of Gustav Klimt masterpiece, "The Kiss"

On the wall... there was this quote. 
I liked Klimt to begin with, but after this quote, 
I liked him even better.



On the way back, just a quick stop at the museum shop, 
where I found these amazing silk scarves.


They are coming home with me, 
either around my wrist or my neck

  1. Klimt rocks! And after reading your post, I have to get back to Wien. This city is so romantic and special. And aren't the Dom and the Naschmarkt to die for:-)

  3. I like Jugendstil to beginn with; sitting on my bed, there's a print of Klimt pictures in my front and my back. I liked Vienna a lot. What do you think about Hundertwasser?

  7. A stop at a museum shop is an utter necessity!

    I was not as lucky in Vienna. Only had one night during the layover.... Another reason to go back to Europe and see all those wonderful places I want to see!

  8. My husband and I spent one day there and we went to the Belvedere and got to see the Kiss, as well as more of his work. It was AMAZING there. Alas, only one day, but we spent a great 3 weeks in the Czech republic.LOVE your blog and I am now your newest follower!
