I am going through some hard times at the moment because a lot of stuff must be done and when they are done I feel too tired to work for The Viennese Girl blog. There are days that I have so much to do and don’t know where to begin with. But I am not here to tell you that I have no time. I want to tell you that breakfast in a beautiful cafe is always a good idea (like Paris!).
Precious time in a cafe with friends or just by myself, both cases are a very enjoyable experience. This time I went out for breakfast at Cafe Ansari alone but I found friends there. One more proof of how small Vienna is..There is always this chance to meet persons that you know here and there accidentally.
I have been told that Cafe Ansari is usually full but that was not the case on Monday morning. We found a table immediately. We sat together and really enjoyed our breakfast at Cafe Ansari. I plan to go back soon.

The more it’s getting warmer, the more I spend time sitting outside. You will find me somewhere in the center of Vienna doing some people watching for hours. I often forget how much time has passed and other more important things that must be done, than watching people passing by for so long.
The more it’s getting warmer, the more I feel the need to spend some time on a beautiful terrace with a bunch of good friends sipping wine, or even better, summer cocktails.
Cafe bloom is the cafe bar of the Hotel LAMÉE. It has a beautiful terrace with view over the Viennese roofs in the first district and the cathedral Stephansdom of Vienna. Take the lift and go to the ninth floor.

May gives me many ups and downs but I shouldn’t complain, especially when I think that 3 magazines in Austria mentioned The Viennese Girl blog and I am glad that Trendsylvania is one of those. A style catalogue and fashion design magazine that you can find free of charge at the Humanic Stores in Vienna.
We teamed up with Trendsylvania and offer you a survival kit made up of summer clothing essentials. A little photo of me and a description of my blog are also included in the article. If you go to a Humanic store, look for the Trendsylvania magazine and me! I hope you are going to like it and that you are going to find your own summer essentials. Ahhh, I am looking forward to relaxing summer days and nights somewhere in the Aegean, in one of the Greek islands of course…♥
There was a girl on Instagram who recommended me to go and visit that place behind the Ubahn metro line U3 Schlachthausgasse. You see, I am not used to hang out around this area, so this is how I discovered that place. Vienna continues to surprise me pleasantly although I should admit that the architecture of the houses left and right to that street was not exaclty to my liking and it was a little photography challenge to snap the blossoming trees while avoiding the buildings.
When I was taking those pictures, initially I had no intention to upload them on The Viennese Girl blog but then I gave it a second thought and felt the need to share them here with you all.
The fairy tale scenery that you see in the photos above only lasted for about two weeks. It’s like all the beautiful things in life that don’t last that long. ♥

As we were walking around the center, I said to Tony that I want to make a blog post about the best ice cream in Vienna – since I love ice cream so much – and write about the places where I usually buy my gelato. We had some time and the photo camera at our disposal, so we went to try different ice creams from the following ice creams shops in the first district of Vienna:
Eissalon Tuchlauben – Eis Greissler – Gelateria Hoher Markt – Zanoni Zanoni – Ferrari ice cream in Krugerstraße 9 (Ferrari doesn’t have a website at the moment)
Another recommendation for ice cream in Vienna is Tichy.
But if you live in Vienna you might not need to read this blog post, because you might have already checked out all those places I mentioned above and you already know where to find your favourite ice cream. After all, everyone has her or his own preferences. As for me, I don’t have a special preference concerning ice cream shops, so I usually go to the closest one. It always depends on which part of the city I am in. As for the flavors I love chocolate, stracciatella and nutella.
And after that blog post, you know how and why I gained one kilo in one day. 🙂 ♥
