Summer holidays.

Radiant blue sky, scent of wood in the barn and grass that is freshly mown... the smell of roses, lavender and suncream …

This recipe for Vanilla Cream Cheese Dumplings (in German “Topfen-Obers-Nockerl”) with Raspberry Sauce is totally linked to my childhood memories of summer holidays in Burgenland.

"Photography leads you to yourself. It is a key to people, places and possibilities."

Zweitkleid7 - the somewhat different second hand shop I know now for some time and you will find here really a small shopping paradise which clearly stands out from other second hand shops.

You will find high quality, barely worn clothes, accessories and much more here. Martina the owner welcomes you in the "living room", that’s how I call the sales room, as it is so cozy that you feel like in a living room. And from her you also get the best advices.

But now she tells you more about her small but fine shop in the 7th district.

Vienna is a city with an infinite number of facets. Many of them you can see immediately as soon as you arrive in Vienna, some things you have to discover and some things are often (almost) unseen.

One of these shadows is the homelessness and this is what the Shades Tours look closer at. I recently met Perrine Schober, the initiator and leader of this unique initiative, and asked her to tell you more about Shades Tours.
