Viennese Pastries

In the next few days I plan to check out a few of Vienna’s top cultural sites, visit a few of the Christmas markets and try my darndest not to put on any weight.

Chelsea Flower Show Pictures

I spotted this blog rating tool via Ms Shasta, and of course I had to confirm my movie rating. Seperately, I spent the last 5 days in Italy.
