When the airplane brings me to Argentina, these are the 16 things that I like to do:

1.    Looking at the waitress who is coming towards me bringing a “bife de chorizo”. At this point I have to admit that I am not keen on meat, I almost never eat it, but in Argentina it became an addiction that I couldn’t escape.

2.    Having the privilege to taste Alfajores, empanadas, and dulce de leche every day.

3.    Practising tango in a Milonga night with Argentinias.

4.    Dancing to the song “Santa Maria Del Buen Ayre” of Gotan Project in the streets of Buenos Aires.

5.    Taking hundreds of photos in the Caminito La Boca neighbourhood.

6.    Travelling around in the city on bicycles Naranja starting from San Telmo, visiting the famous stadium “La Bombonera,” reaching the nature reserve surrounded by the vast La Plata River at the end.

7.    Walking in front of the “Casa Rosada” thinking of Evita Perron. Don’t cry for her Argentina.

8.    Enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and panqueques at the famous Cafe Tortoni.

9.    Having a private dinner with strangers in an old apartment in Palermo Viejo. The menu is a surprise.

10.    Crossing the widest avenue of the world by taxi, the 9 de Julio Avenue, especially in the night.

11.    Spending a lot of hours in “El Ateneo” looking for a special book and having hot chocolate afterwards. Simply, one of the most incredible bookstores in the world.

12.    Drinking mate tea in the mountains the Andes.

13.    Wine tasting in the vineyards in the city of Mendoza.

14.    Exploring the countryside visiting small little villages like Cachi, San Antonio de los Cobres, and Purmamarca.

15.    Gazing at the pink church of Salta. Have you ever seen a pink church before?  If only I could have one more lunch at the restaurant Doña Salta…

16.    Two days tour in the incredible Iguazu Falls, both sides. One day the Argentinean side and the next one the Brazilian side. The Devil’s Throat is spectacular. Enjoy the nature.

Finding a nice home in Vienna was a no easy journey. After many bruises from moving boxes and coffee tables, I found this one that matches me the best, this one that I finally can call home sweet home!

A home that provides me with positive energy and inspiration and encourages me to make beautiful and creative things. The deco was made by a special lady. I don’t want to reveal more than this online; two of the photos gives you a small peek into my personal refuge.

Café Sperl

Before I come to Vienna, I heart a lot for its famous Coffeehouses. After visiting all of them, Café Sperl became one of my favorites for many reasons.

It is not situated in the first district, but in the sixth, so there are more locals than tourists and although it is crowded, it still remains quiet for those who want to enjoy a Melange reading a newspaper or working with their computer.

Each time I visit it, I enjoy the hot chocolate which they call it Creme Choco and the interior design which brings me back to another epoch.
In other words,Café Sperl is a gem that you have to discover.

Gumpendorfer Straße 11, 1060 Vienna

So this is Christmas and what have you done?

So this is Christmas and what have you done, another year over, and a new one just begun..

You don’t have to ask yourself when is the right time to visit the capital of Austria. Vienna is famous especially during the Christmas time for its Christmas market, for the decoration and for the festive spirit that you come across all over the city.

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.
To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy,
is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” Calvin Coolidge
