You know…that kind of small cute cafes in Vienna that I like to visit every now and then. This is Naschsalon, situated in the 9th district and it was suggested by my friend Patricia Vincent. She said that it is her favourite cafe in Vienna, so we met here twice. Both times, I ordered the same breakfast. Salmon with butter, marmalade and warm fresh bread but the best was my hot lemonade with honey. Patricia also told me that they have delicious pastries, but I was so enamoured with my salmon and that warm bread that I couldn’t resist them. Fortunately, Naschsalon is on my way to the university, so I guess I will have that breakfast more often in the future. The best way to reach Naschsalon is by the tram D and you get off at Bauernfeldplatz.♥
Those who follow The Viennese Girl blog might have noticed the changes we’ve made lately on the blog. Those are small but significant changes for me, as a founder and editor of this Vienna blog. Those are changes I‘ve been wanting to have for such a long time. The problem is that I have had no idea about anything that concerns coding but my friend Ioanna has! We found some free time and sat down and discussed what would work better for The Viennese Girl blog, how can we make it look better, and how can it be more user friendly. Thanks to Ioanna, those significant changes on the appearance of the blog were implemented and I am now more glad than before to have a blog that looks exactly the way I want. At the end of every meeting with Ioanna, I was joking to her: one day I will hire you as my secretary…But seriously, I am glad to have my friend Ioanna on board, who contributes to the blog with her valuable technical knowledge. She is a savvy IT girl.
We are working constantly to improve what we love, The Viennese Girl blog. A photography blog, a visual diary of Silia, who likes to discover beautiful things on a daily basis in Vienna, even when it’s cold and rainy outside. I hope you like the changes we’ve made, too.

While everybody else was waiting to catch the next tram, I was taking photos of the cherry blossoms. I really feel like a tourist in my own city and I have a lot of fun with it. While everybody else was in a hurry to get back home or work, tell me, how could I ignore those blossoming cherry trees with Votiv church in the background? Only the cars were disturbing my visual creativity at that moment but I couldn’t do anything to stop them. (Excuse me mister driver, could you please stop driving on that street because at this moment I need to take a photo of the cherry blossom?) I am sure people would look at me strangely too, but I knew I shouldn’t miss that shot.
Schottentor is one of the most frequented and busiest metro stations in Vienna, located between the first and ninth district opposite to the University of Vienna. Not only the U2 metro line but also many trams depart from Schottentor towards the 9th district and 19th district.♥
Not by chance this picture is selected by me as the picture of the week. It totally fits my spring mood, although the weather doesn’t seem to want to get better. I am afraid that my expectations for warmer days are higher than they should be but hey, it’s March. Maybe I should wait one more month, maybe I should wait for April. But still, I take those pink flowers as a sign of spring that is about to come.
This photo was taken by Tony Gigov in Schönbrunn, during our photography lesson. I am sorry that I cannot upload more flower photos at the moment, but I promised to myself to do it, as soon as the flowers blossom around Vienna.♥

When Tony asks you to let him take some pictures of you, you simply cannot say no, even if you don’t have any make up on your face, even if you don’t have that special outfit on you. Strangely enough, I feel comfortable going around the city and being photographed without wearing lots of makeup in order to look beautiful. He gave me chocolate and we had a relaxed stroll downtown Vienna talking mainly about our favorite subject: photography! Those pictures were taken in Graben, one of the most famous streets in Vienna’s first district, and its surroundings. I really had a nice time.♥
