wagon-lit



our first night in the train




sunday in vienna, an indian summer day, visiting schloss schönbrunn, a walk in the park and through square tree alleys, a beautiful playhut in a nursery (a good inspiration for the biggest room in our flat but not for playing, more reading or relaxing, a room in a room is something i really like) lou dressing up as a habsburger, us finding the way through a huge maze, a nice rest in a real cafehaus folding origami with a burgeois viennoise cafevisitor sitting next to us, a fitting with hospitable actors in their home and back to the wagon-lit, our home for two nights and a playground as well.


sleeping soundly in the slowly shaking train and being back in the morning, exactly in time to start school and work straight out of the train.
once in a while a little adventure like this is fine but i really hope and wish that after the autumn holiday break a regular day routine will be back.
the thing i want the most is a structured day and much more time for home-family-friend-crafting-project-activities.

looks and sounds wonderful (my favorite word).
i imagine it's good for a kid to have this kind of experiences too, being patient, having fun, adventuring, making any place like home...
(we have had the most horrible morning fight here, i feel like i fell of a cliff) (V is happily at the kindergarten now, i should start working. she said, "adults can get angry too")

indeed, looks like you had fun on your work trip with sweet company. in the pic where lou looks down in striped dress and strickjacke - she suddenly looks a lot like her grandfather, don't you think? küsse von hier, d

MY OTHER ROOM said...

hanna, yes it was a wonderful trip with her and i agree with the experience for kids but it feels so alien, all this crazyness just for a trivial film...
i have very much sympathy with your "fell off a cliff feelings" , with lou i have this fights regularly, they appear and luckily disappear in phases, she just changes her attitude with the age and whenever they reappear i am frightened again, at the moment we have the peaceful period, after she got adjusted to school with some very expressive nervous breakdowns the last weeks...

m-w a journey in a sleeping-train is wonderful, you definetely should do it!

d-sorry for having been so un-talkative last night, grumpy older sister was exhausted againand tired but i see no resemblance between C and L, but funny you see it, have to study it, interesting, ha...
