Living in China I have to say whenever I go on vacation I steer clear of cities! I long for peace and quite. So Austria is really my favorite place to go these days – the mountains, lakes, clean air, clean water and most importantly the blue skies!
After a couple of days in Vienna, where the Christmas markets and church concerts kept us busy we drove to Lienz, my fathers home town for a family rendez vous and some skiing. I am so proud to be Austrian, every time I go back I fall more and more in love with the country. The landscapes are amazing, the food, the people, the snow, the sun, the architecture – as you can see I’m considering taking a job for the Austrian tourist board ! Here are a few photographs from my days in the mountains followed by a lucky escape on my return to Shanghai via Thailand with my favorite people.
Happy New Year!
