this summer has been so much fun in vienna. there has been so much sunshine, we've enjoyed some amazing times with friends, been to budapest and seen lots of live bands. including patti smith this week who was totally AMAZING (can't stop singing gloria in my head).
talking of music that is stuck in my head i absolutely adore cat power's new song ruin. but be warned, its very catchy! i can't wait for the release of her new album sun on 3rd september.
i'm not really sure what i've been doing with the rest of my time. the great gatsby was the last book i read but that was aaaaages ago. i've started the stranger's child by alan hollinghurst but its sadly been sitting unread. we have become obsessed with watching breaking bad though. its seriously brilliant. so maybe i've just been watching lots of tv!
i had to say goodbye to work colleagues this week which was also very weird. it feels like maybe i'm on holiday and i'll be going back in a couple of weeks. tonight is our final night in vienna and i'm not looking forward to saying our last goodbyes. sad times. but also exciting new times ahead.

(we won't talk about lying on the freezing station floor in the middle of the night and getting home at 6.30am after catching the first train home to vienna!).

i decided to visit the secession. something i'd wanted to do since we moved here but somehow never found the time. i love the building so much with the beautiful gold dome and now i can say i've finally been inside and seen gustav klimts 'the beethoven frieze'.

i think i may have half destroyed 2 pairs of my favourite sandals. it was so dusty! but it was totally worth it. we saw so many bands over the 5 days. the killers, the xx, friendly fires, anna calvi, the stone roses, the horrors, beardyman, glasvegas, noah and the whale, hurts, fink, to name but a few....
we ate tons of hungarian sausage and traditional breads. we danced like crazy and even saw michael eavis!
