City to City: Vienna



 Hello My DARLINGS!

I've decided to pay a little visit to Vienna myself, the travel bug got me so I decided to leave my human at home! LOL

I bet you thought 'felines' don't have a sweet tooth, well some of us do! I have a sophisticated palate and love to ROUTE (Root) it out.  :^..^:
 M I L K ,  C R E AM and any DELISH!!

A Konditorei typically offers a wide variety of pastries and is like a little café. In Germany, Austria and Israel it is a very popular custom to go to a Konditorei to have a cake and some coffee or hot chocolate mid-afternoon.

The profession of the Konditor


developed from that of the baker. Once the bakers of medieval times (15th century) mastered the art of baking bread, some started to rarefy the dough with honey, dried fruits and spices. These specialists called themselves Lebküchler,



 Lebküchner or Lebzelter. They founded a guild in 1643 in the area in and around Nürnberg.
Lebkuchner



 {At the same time, the Lebkuchen bakers ran a second trade using wax, a side product of honey: they became chandlers, supplying churches and private households with artistic candles, wax figures and pictures made of wax. They carved wooden molds themselves and used these to pour magnificent pictures made of wax}.



My understudy supplies me with the "real deal"


  A few Konditoreien practised
 the sophisticated art of the chandlers until recent times.

In a her best German accent Diva meows "
^ .. ^ (Whistfully) Guten Tag, Art Madam! Bitte richten Sie mich zu den besten Konditorei in Wien, wo sie haben eine Fülle von Sahne. Danke!


English: 
 ^..^ (Whistfully) Good afternoon, kind Madam! Please direct me to the best pastry shop in Vienna,  where they have an abundance of cream.  Thank you!


 Well, I'm going out to the Vienna Wiener Konzerthaus

With a swirl of my Opera cape I'm on my way..................

Summer Days are PURFECT for sharing!

Hello My Darlings!

The birds are are chirping with much happiness, nattering away as I write from my quiet abode. The urban city, trudging along to the hum of traffic, human pedestrians going here and there...pondering as I am about "Summer time" less than a week away! Meoooooooooooooooooow!  Are you ready, I am!


My human, loves to hum along with this retro music..da, da, da, ta, ta, tada'.

Start those paws and toes tapping:

Well, I'm making my 'wish list' to give to my servant (LOL):
  • A trip to the beach
  • A ride with Tuxedo cat
  • Catch some Salmon!
  • Sleep......
Did you know?
Salmon are fish that belong to the family of Salmonidae (biologists classify types of organisms according to similar characteristics: the term “families” encompasses the more commonly used terms “genus” and “species.” Within the Salmonidae family are the genus Salmo, which contains Atlantic salmon, and the genus Oncorhynchus, which contains Pacific salmon released into the Great Lakes, trout, and char. A common characteristic of salmonids is the presence of an adipose fin just in front of the tail on the dorsal (top) side. In general, these are all bony fish that are caught commercially from the wild, a dietary mainstay of aboriginal populations, sought after by recreational anglers, and farmed intensively because of their desirable taste and nutritional characteristics.
