Florence on the Elbe, Dresden in Bloom.

They gave the city a name,
one so graciously given
the residents get to live in eternal splendor.
Within the old town quarters.
Tales of Saxony ensues ever after.  Civilizations bloom and wilt,
Dynasties rise and fall.
Stories after stories are told.

Dresden resembles that of a benign aristocrat.
By Lady Elbe's cordial invite.
Tempted by two bona fide friends with foreign titles
"Semperope and Zwinger", you say?
It's an invitation I shall humbly accept.

Vienna is for the Old Souls - Volume 1




"The perfect escapade is that without an elaborate plan,
no strings attached nor worries ahead,
a conscious mind and an insatiable thirst for change.
Brace yourself, darling,
where we are headed is for the old souls."

Bound for Vienna, a city with a gorgeous name,
its beauty unfairly lasts perhaps for more than a thousand years.
Like an eternal flower that never wilts, been through greats wars, empires rise and fall.
Marked by footprints of prolific artists, romantic poets, and formidable politicians.









Strolling through Stephansplatz under the March blue sky, I'm seeing colors and shades of gold.
Just like that, I feel whole once again. When the church bells rang at St. Stephen's Cathedral, I looked up and all the melancholy emotions just evaporated. Funny how traveling can do to a person, sometimes I swear it's the antidote to everything, the answers to the enigma we called life.




I'm reliving history, pretending to be royalty in the chambers of Schonnbrun. The past can take me away from the present time even if it's for just a second. Renaissance castles with spiraling staircase whispering stories of a thousand years. If you follow the breadcrumbs left by the predecessors, you could find the hidden crown jewel.






The Belvedere sure as hell lived up to its name, a timeless beauty reciting legends of kings, queens, and aristocrats. It's the place where Impressionism and Art Nouveau cross path, where creative visions are encapsulated and immortalized. Golden tales of Gustav Klimt and the invigorating life of Empress Sisi could occupy my thoughts for a while.



I am currently writing stories of my own in Cafe Central located in Herrengasse, Vienna. A historical coffee place so graciously aged like a bottle of fine wine, a place graced by formidable literary figures and renowned world changers. Will you come on the next journey with me?

  8. Europe makes me feel that way too. Especially since it is so far removed from where I live. I adore all the grandness and history behind every single square kilometre. I've never been to Vienna but it's definitely on the list.
