I was in such a hurry to share my first impressions of Vienna with you that I missed my very first impression at the airport. I love new spaces and an airport usually provides a taste of where you are. I’ve included a photo from just inside our gate when we landed, a photo of a coffee shop (closed since we arrived late at night) and the baggage claim area, featuring huge advertising for Klimt’s Kiss at the Belvedere. Enjoy it – cameras weren’t allowed in the room housing the real painting.

I am having a great time sorting through photos and enjoying all the little details that appear when you scrutinize them on a big screen. Enough for now. Must get back to work.

  1. Vienna airport was remodelled very recently. I want to least year. I was shocked when I went earlier this year.. I even asked an official to make sure I was in the right city!! I think it looks like a piano, quite appropriately. But for some odd reasons, my colleagues don’t see how I cam to that conclusion.
