A week has gone by since I got back from Austria, and already we’re flying through May. I went a tad overboard with the pictures on this trip (taking ~1,500 of them), but little by little am unearthing gems. The one above is an unexpected favorite–it shows the Belvedere early in the morning, when gardens are slow to wake up and the city hasn’t got going quite yet.
If there’s one constant with traveling, it’s sugar. So, to me it was pretty much a given that Vienna’s signature Sacher-Torte–dense chocolate cake layered with apricot jam–would happen at some point in the trip.
Pretty good! A little dry, but a tour guide later told me this is because many Sacher-Tortes are made to last a few months as they’re shipped internationally.
And more gardens/desserts to come…
