House sitting in Spain … and good bye Vienna

 

Well, I finally arrived in Spain – as my body is here since over ten days the rest has been following now. In a beautiful old house, surrounded by a mediteranean garden with seaview – there is even a pool although the water has not seen more than my toes.

It is a nice and big house and I leave it only rarely at the moment – for groceries and to have a closer look at the sea – but mainly I am here, enjoying to have so much time to spend in the fresh air and in the sun, while finding a good rythm between gardening and house work, taking care of the cat, reading, Yoga, computer, watching films and good food.

In the following two months I want to build up my repertoire around the topics Yoga and burn-out prevention – in this lovely mediteranean winter and upcoming spring. I practice and read a lot, develop sequences and much more.

This is good for me, as I was very busy in the last weeks in Austria. To move all my stuff from Salzburg to Vienna in a knee-jerk action (two days packing, one day moving, two days storing all the stuff) has not left me without traces. And then I was suddenly not so sure, if it was the right decision to leave my nice place in Salzburg. This might connect with the fact that Vienna is not really a good place to be in January. Too grey, too dark – a time where single sun rays are the source of jubilant messages. Some say that it is not by accident, that the psychotherapy was invented in Vienna. But I deviate from the subject.

However – the apartment in Vienna is almost ready, nicely furnished and I can now dedicate my time unhurriedly to my new environment and new projects. Watch out!

Vienna – colourful walk around the Danube Canal

Colourful graffitis around the Danube Canal in Vienna

 

 

I am in Vienna at the moment and I could tell a lot about this city, as I have lived here most time of my life. On the other side I tried again and again in previous years to escape  sometimes for a shorter and sometimes for a longer time. I also think there is a love-hate relation between me and Vienna- and the degree of affection is related with seasonal changes. And now I am doing something I don’t like at all -  a few weeks in winter in town. A time, where I just don’t like the city.

Maybe because there is a really high probality of a grey veil lying over the city. Far and wide no sun, and no sky – everything just grey. To contrast this with some colour is really pleasant -  for example with a walk along the Danube Canal.

Around the Schottenring (underground station) there is a lot to see. Big, colourful graffitis some legal, some illegal give the city a colourful look. And next to it, in direction of Urania the “cultural mile” Agora – a unique art project taking place every summer since 25 years. But also in winter there is a lot to see. Have a look
