Vienna Ball season– I have some great news. First of all, travelling starts over again for TVG (=The Viennese Girl). I am leaving for Italy tomorrow together with Anastacia for one week. This is the first press trip for the year 2017. It is organised by ENIT-Italia. Check out our Instagram channels for daily updates. And the second good news is that Lorin from Canaj Visualsdid one more amazing video for The Viennese Girl blog and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did filming it.
Thanks to the invitation from the Ball der Wiener Sängerknaben, who gave us the opportunity to attend their Ball and create this beautiful video. It was also an opportunity to get together, talk, laugh, dance and forget all the rest…for a night! What do you think about the choice of the music?
Lorin initially had the idea to go for a classical Mozart song, but I thought that we should give to the ball a more young modern touch, and so we went for the song,“Falling”, from Secrets in Stereo. In general, I never thought that The Viennese Girl would ever have videos. But look how things turned out! Unexpectedly good! Fairy tale styling hair was from my all time favourite hair salon B.lounge Vienna, and my pink pastel dress was from Peek&Cloppenburg. Hope you like it and you get the chance to visit a ball during the Vienna Ball season.
Christmas in Vienna – It was a while ago when I talked with Lorin from Canajvisuals.com over a cup of coffee, and asked him to help me create a video that will showcase how magical Vienna is during the Christmas season. This is the first time that I’m doing a video for The Viennese Girl blog, and it is also the first time that I worked with Lorin. I explained to him what exactly I had in my mind and how I wanted the final result to be. It should be magical with a fairy tale feeling. It should be exactly how Christimas in Vienna is, and it should stay true to the philosophy and the style of The Viennese Girl blog.
Everything went perfectly. The only problem we faced was the music. We both had in mind two well-known beautiful songs and we knew that one of the two would complement our video beautifully. But it turned out to be impossible to get them because of the super expensive copyright license. We had to find another solution. However, I loved working with Lorin, especially for the reason that he takes my opinion into consideration and we have something in common: we are both perfectionists. We strive for perfection, and we worked hard despite the freezing cold out there to create something that you will love to watch. This is our way of wishing you a Merry Christmas. If you like the video Christmas in Vienna, feel free to leave a comment (because I am so curious to know your thoughts….)
This week, on Friday the 24th of June, I had another opportunity to play dress up, to feel like a little princess and to fall in love with my life here in Vienna. It was the first time I attended the Fête Impériale Ball, but it was my third ball of this year, after the Vienna Opera ball and the Kaffeesiederball at Hofburg Palace. To be honest, after experiencing three balls in Vienna, the Vienna Opera Ball is on the top of my list. But I liked the Fête Impériale very much as well, especially for the decoration and its summer character. Yes, on The Viennese Girl blog, we do love summer balls.
From a photography point of view, the situation was quite out of my control because I couldn’t really move and get the picture composition that I wanted. However, in one of the photos above, there is a beautiful picture of the Director of the Ball, Elisabeth Gürtel, together with Princess Benedikte of Denmark.
I wish I get more opportunities to dress up like this and to take pictures of fairy tale moments like this ball, not only in Vienna, but also on a more worldwide level. In Cannes for example, I am just saying… : )
This blog post seems to be more current and relevant than anything else because summer is finally here. As the temperature rises, all of us more or less are trying to find a pleasant place to relax on the weekend, or during those precious hours after work. Apart from that, it has also been a while since the last time I revealed a Vienna tip here on The Viennese Girl blog. Ops, wait a minute! Did I say Vienna? I meant to say Bad Vöslau, a spa town only approximately 40minutes away by car from Vienna.
I didn’t know that a place like this, or something similar to it could exist close to Vienna until last week. As you can see from the photos above, I found myself in a green oasis surrounded by big trees, green field and a huge mineral water swimming pool. We had the chance to spend the whole day doing nothing but relax and enjoy our surroundings.
I am happy to reveal one more thing to do in your leisure time here on The Viennese Girl blog, just in case you also didn’t know that place yet. On the day we went to Thermalbad Vöslau, the weather couldn’t have been better. We laid on sun loungers, ate ice cream, and it felt like we were on holidays somewhere in Italy. What a beautiful day!
I should not forget to mention the little wooden house, called Milchbar, which is located up on the hill. We had yummy snacks, drunk mango smoothies and chocolate milkshakes, all while enjoying the pretty view. If you visit Thermalbad Vöslau, it’s a good idea to walk around as the thermal bath is huge and spacious. Make sure you also pay a visit to Milchbar. More info about Thermalbad Vöslauhere.
With all those flowers and trees blooming around me it was impossible not to take some pictures of Vienna in April. I was thinking all the time that spring in Vienna with all those cherry blossom trees and all kinds of flowers is actually a very good reason for foreigners to visit the city.
But if you come to Vienna in April for the flowers, which by the way also smell damn good, you have to know where to find them. Since I have lived here for many years now, it wasn’t difficult for me to spot them.
The photos above were taken at Burggarten, Volksgarten and Stadtpark. They are to my eyes more like paintings than photos. It is like someone has drawn them. Similar photos (or paintings) from last year’s spring you can find here.
Once, I recall, they called me pastries photographer, now they will probably call me flower photographer, but in the reality what I really love taking photos of is this. Now I am leaving you for a couple of days. I am invited to paradise, also known as Greece, for a press trip. Bye bye Vienna.
