Well the past couple of weeks have been eventful..
I’ve recently moved to Vienna (Wein) in Austria to be an au pair for a family over here. I’ve been here just under 5 days…
I haven’t had much time to explore yet but here are a few pictures of my adventure so far.
View across the city.
View from the train earlier this evening.
I was so happy to see a rainbow after the rainy autumn day we had here in Yorkshire the other day. As it has been a while since I last saw a rainbow.
In honour of the fact that it’s national poetry day I’ve written a little something. Since it’s been a while since I last wrote a poem.
The season where the nights begin
to draw in.
Of woodland walks and the sound of
leaves crunching underfoot.
And the smell of wood smoke in
the air as I wander up my street.
Of bygone days when as a child I climbed trees and picked apples with my grandpa.
And went down the lane in a wheelbarrow cushioned with leaves.
Seeing the trees turn from green to golden shades of orange and burnt red.
Of evenings sat by the fire reading and feeling cosy with a mug of coco on the coffee table.
Oh autumn the season of natures splendour as though the countryside has turned into a living painting.
That I get to walk around freely.
Oh what a joy!

I love that the countryside is right on my doorstep.. I don’t get to explore round here as often as I’d like.. So this afternoons walk with some dear friends was a lovely spontaneous surprise.
We walked from Birnsall to Grassington and back..
