A Viennese Whirl and the perfect book

Just back from a trip to Vienna, a wonderful whirl of palaces, cakes , coffee and Klimt.

Whilst there I read Daisy Goodwin’s fascinating book about Sisi, Empress of Austria, ‘The Fortune Hunter’. It was the perfect book in perfect location, surrounded as I was by the famous picture of her with stars in her hair .WP_20141102_002

I even saw the wonderfully corny 1955 film about Sisi, starring Romy Schneider with its spectacular Technicolor scenery, gorgeous frocks, hammy dialogue; I totally loved it .
