I love Volksgarten Pavillon in Vienna for two personal reasons:
First reason: it reminds me of Samos.
Second reason: this is the place where my best friend in Vienna and I used to catch up during the summer.
Finally the weather is warm again in Vienna, and we can spend some time together sitting outside here. The decoration is a little bit strange. By saying strange, I mean that it has a touch of vintage and it looks a bit untended.
It’s not really a fancy place but it evokes a certain summer mood, summer feeling and a lot of carefreeness. Although it is located in the center of Vienna, near to Hofburg, it seems that it’s not discovered by tourists yet, but after this post I don’t know… 🙂

I have been longing for a stroll at Lainzer Tiergarten and visit at Hermesvilla for many months now. But it wasn’t possible because Hermesvilla was closed during the winter and reopened its doors on 28 March 2015.
On one hand, I wonder how come I haven’t visited Hermesvilla not even once in the past 4 years I’ve been living in Vienna, but on the other hand, I am glad there are still new things to see and do in the Austrian capital. If you plan to visit Hermesvilla, just remember that the entrance is free every first Sunday of each month.
Sisi used to live in Hermesvilla, therefore you can see the interior and some furniture, but what I liked the most was the charming stairs and beautiful black and white checkerboard floor.
To sum it up, on this blog post there are some pictures of Hermesvilla, its surroundings, and the cafe restaurant on the ground floor. I didn’t take many pictures of Hermesvilla because it was under construction. But what a romantic place for a stroll, right?

Dreamy Vienna! Cherry blossoms all over the place
The story goes like this. We were sitting hungry in our favorite French bistro downtown Vienna. Le Bol was busy and noisy but we enjoyed our breakfast. After we were done with our breakfast, Elena (the girl in the photos above) asked me if I wanted to accompany her to the shop, next to Le Bol, which has eyeglasses and I asked her to go to that magical street with the blossoming trees so we can take photos. We did both. First we went to the eyeglasses shop and then, we took the metro line U4 from Karlsplatz to Pilgramgasse (where I used to have an aparment once) and went to the cherry blossom trees. And this is what happened. No special make up and no hair dresser, we had a spontaneous photoshooting. So, this is my friend Elena in front of my camera. Elena doesn’t model in her life; she posed only for me. It’s safe to say that my friends are beautiful 🙂 As for me, one day I hope, I will be shooting for Dior #bigdreams :))

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.♥
