I’ve said previously how magical Vienna is at night, but during the weeks leading up to Christmas- this city takes it to a whole new level. Even with temperatures at or below freezing, it’s worth bundling up and walking around the city to see all the lights and markets. More on the markets in a later post. After getting back from Taiwan, I had the case of the “I want to go back and don’t want to be here” blues. And from what I gather, any expat who goes “home” for a visit has a form of this when they get back to their adopted country. It’s quite normal.
And with my adopted city looking like this, it’s not that hard to get out of my funk and truly enjoy this joyous time. Afterall, Vienna is world famous during this season.
