Riesenrad

ferris wheel

25 February 08
(Shot from inside a moving train)

One of the famous playplace for kids, Praterstern. The big Riesenrad (Ferris/Giant wheel) has become a Viennese icon much like the London Eye or Tokyo's Big-O or the Singapore Flyer. Apart from the Ferris wheel the kids really enjoy the features of a Carnival, Chuck; there's a merry go round! =P

Since tomorrow is theme day, I'm guessing it will be hard to pick again which photo I should upload so I'd be posting one now.

The kids picking up stones by the lakeside. The lake is of course, Vienna's Danube river.

  1. Riesenrad looks like a giant fan. The view from the top might be astonishing.

  3. I love the shot of your kids by the banks of the Danube. The shot of the Riesenrad was nice too.

    If only the kids know that they're sitting on the banks of a river that is not only historic but one that also inspired a waltz.

  4. I finished my post for tomorrow's post Panaderos which is about water (btw, may I ask for your real name? hihi)...I saved it na. I got confused when I read your comment because I wrote about the waltz and the Danube for tomorrow...I was thinking I might have posted it earlier by mistake!

    The kids just laugh when I hum: 'tan ta nan tan tan, tantan tantan!' =D

  5. Riesenrad; reminds me of the eye that we have here in Malaysia. It was for the Visit Malaysia 2007.

  12. Gizelle, one of us has our time zones mixed up. I'm thinking there is a 9 hour difference? Gee, I guess it's me. -:) When I stop and do the math 9 pm in Seattle is 6 am in Vienna. Well thanks for the theme day photo of the Danube!

  13. Time difference is always confusing for me Chuck, especially when we have to do daylight savings, since we adjusted 2 days ago, its 8 hours difference now :D

  14. hey gzel! the cloth thing you were talking about was supposed to be for the upcoming EM, but i think that was already ruined by the past storm and they are not planning to put it back because of the cost.

    by the way, i really enjoy your pics.
