les coquelicots

J'ai eu la chance de prendre des photos de coquelicots sur notre chemin à la campagne en République Tchèque!

A fun weekend in Vienna with Xue! 

Not too far from where I got off the bus, there was a giant ferris wheel!

Walking towards the centre. I was very amazed by all the massive historical monuments all around!

This is my friend Xue, who is currently living in Vienna!

A taste of Austrian beer with some Austrian people.

At Schonbrunn Palace, the summer residence of the Habsburg family. 

Walking in one of the many lovely gardens...

I love just sitting outside with a friend, chat, eat, and watch people go by!

Interesting modern art on the streets.

Xue and a big fountain!

A treble clef and Mozart's statue in the back.

My dinner - turkey steak with veggies and rice! It was a delicious meal!!

At Kunsthistorisches Museum, where Xue is interning!

Inside the art museum... I feel tiny! 
(photo take by Xue)

Very happy that I got to see the original paintings of the Infanta Margarita Teresa of Spain.

A cool "aerial view" of the museum café.

A piece of the yummy Viennese chocolate cake, aka Sachertorte!

Enjoying the sunshine outside on this big purple plastic chair called "enzi".


For many reasons, this trip really reminded me of how rootless I have become over the past few years...

Where is "home"?  
It's been a while since I no longer know.

Found a new way on Photoshop to make "bubbly" photos without using my fisheye lens! 


I will be in Vienna for the weekend to visit the city and hang-out with my friend! Looking forward to it!!
Need to sleep now, pack in the morning, and catch my bus at noon time. =)

dusk at Vltava

Taken at the bridges over Vltava River, Prague. 


Pour les jours qui viennent, je veux profiter de mes soirées à sortir plus souvent en ville afin d'éviter trop de  temps de solitude dans ma chambre, devant mon écran, enveloppée par des pensées tristes...

St. Vitus Cathedral

This is largest and most important church in Prague. It is situated within the Prague Castle complex, on a hill. Its construction began under the reign of King Charles IV in 1344, but it took a while before it was finally completed! Apparently the remains of some sovereigns, saints and archbishops are still interred here today. 

I really like its Gothic-style architecture!

Une photo spontanément prise de mon amie (Xue) après le dîner dans un restaurant tchèque! 

C'était aussi cette soirée-là qu'elle est partie pour Vienne. Sa visite en Prague était courte et on s'est vue seulement quelques fois pendant son séjour. Pourtant, je trouve qu'on a eu la chance de vraiment parler quand on a parlé et j'apprécie beaucoup cela. J'étais un peu triste quand on s'est dit au revoir à l'arrêt de tram... mais je sais qu'on se reverra!!

P.S. J'ai travaillé sur cette photo tout en écoutant la pluie tomber dehors =)

look far

A view of the Prague city from Television Tower in Zizkov. I went there on the weekend with a new Canadian friend, also currently living in Prague. 

This is about 95 meters above ground!
