We don't get to see a lot of snow in #Vienna . Whenever we do, I wonder if it will be the last time or how many more times we are going to see it. It was only when I lived in Australia that I understood what the seasons that I grew up with actually meant for my life. My memories of time in Brisbane are so blurry to me. I really can't tell what happened when there. Here, most moments are tied to colours, months, temperatures, light, etc. I wonder, though, what the future holds.

I really enjoyed the Arena as location and I'm very happy my kid go to experience her first "real" concert (actual evening staff, standing, delayed gig with whistling) in such a culturally rich place.
Most of the other parents looked like they'd been here many times before. Totally my bubble.
We had a really warm November here in #Vienna (average temperature 8°C), our apple tree still hasn't lost its leaves....and then December arrived and out of nowhere we got about 20cm of snow in one day! That's not a lot for Austria, but it certainly caused chaos in the city, where few people are used to real snow! #ClimateDiary
Es gibt nämlich News zu #Russki #SIGINT #Vienna. Sie drehen grade die großen Spiegel der SIGINT Station in Wien 22 auf Sats über Nahost.
More to come, denn die #NomenNescio-Crew verfügt jetzt über 1en permanenten Beobachtungsposten vor Ort...

100 years of #Interpol - No reason to celebrate
"The general assembly of the “International Criminal Police Organization” (Interpol) with 195 member states is supposed to take place at the end of November/beginning of December for its 100th Anniversary. The event is rumoured to happen from the 28th of November until the 3rd of December. The guest list names hundreds of police chiefs and heads of governments. Goal of the conference is the improvement of the efficiency in fighting international crime and terrorism, as well as universal global quality standards.
All projects of Interpol deal with data collection and storage, plus making the data as fast as possible to retrieve and compare for cops all over the world. The project “Silk Road”, for example, ended up in identifying 270 people involved in “organised immigration crime” and subsequently in the arrests of a large share. How quickly those assisting migration efforts could be prosecuted, with its goal of preventing migration movements altogether, should be clear to all of us.
With project “Roxanne”, law enforcement agencies in the EU are supposed to receive a powerful surveillance tool....."
The full moon over #Vienna today. I wish I had brought a tripod 😭
I have an app that tells my when there will be cool sunrises or sunsets, I need to look for one that will tell me about the moon as well
Besides English, I speak/read German, French, Italian, & a little Czech. I’m learning some Portuguese too!
The Christmas Markets in Vienna kicked off over the weekend and what a feast for the eyes.
For reasons, I have complicated feelings around this holiday time of year. But on this night, the snow, the lights, the general merriment, they all warmed the cockles of me heart!
(These photos are from Stephansplatz, apparently not even the largest market in town.)
🇦🇹🚄🥐☕️ It's time for a wonderful weekend trip von #Vienna🇦🇹 to #Budapest🇭🇺 with RJX61 and a nice #ÖBB🇦🇹 #diningcar. A classical and delicious "Kaiser Frühstück" with kaiser roll, croissant🥐, organic butter, jam, ham & cheese🧀 is the perfect choice to elevate the travel experience to the next level 😍.

10 November 1920 | An Austrian Jew Max Sojfer was born in Vienna. He emigrated to the Netherlands.
In March 1944 he was deported to Auschwitz. He did not survive.
Anyone know why this weird pattern is being projected on the parliament building in #Vienna? Can't find anything via Google or parliament homepage.
🇩🇪🚄🍽 I really love the ICE-T train-sets and so this trip with ICE 20 from #Vienna🇦🇹 to #Nuremberg🇩🇪 was delightful, in spite of a delay of 30min, due to a late arrival of the train arriving in the Austrian capital.
