🇦🇹A WALK AT VIENNA’s CITY PARK NAMED “STADTPARK” LOCATED AT FIRST DISTRICT UNTIL AT THE 3rd DISTRICT 👩🏻‍🍳iTravel

👩‍🍳In earlier times, visitors to the park had to pay a fee for staying in the armchairs, which was demanded by the so-called armchair women. This visitor service, run by a private company, ended in 1956 but now not anymore. The gilded bronze statue of Johann Strauss son in the Stadtpark is one of Vienna’s best-known and most photographed monuments. In this video, there are other monuments, for example by Franz Schubert, Robert Stolz and Hans Makart. Since 2008, the annual festival of enjoyment has taken place in the city park on Mother’s Day weekend at the beginning of May. In more than 170 tents, manufacturers from the nine federal states present regional products that can be bought and tasted at many stands. The festival is organized by the City of Vienna.

🇦🇹HIKING TRAIL ON THE EDGE OF 22nd DISTRICT OF VIENNA & RESTAURANT SCHLOß EßLING

👩‍🍳Today’s hiking trail is on the edge of the 22nd District of Vienna. After hiking, we ate at Restaurant Schloss Essling, with typical Viennese cuisine and International delicacies. Food is homemade, hand-made and made with love. The concept is to understand, regional products, to bring you closer to the variety of international and local cuisine. Obtain most of our raw materials in organic quality from the region.

The 22nd District of Vienna is also a residential area. The narrow Danube island families cavort at the picnic areas during summertime and many cyclists. The old Danube is an attraction to swimmers and sailors with its calm waters. Also, mention The Lobau wetland is crisscrossed by numerous hiking trails.

🇦🇹GASTRONOMIC ADVENTURE AT GASTHAUS HASELBAUER aka “DIE LANDWIRTIN” in MISTELBACH

👩‍🍳We travel outside Vienna to Niederleis the town in the district of Mistelbach in the Austrian state of Lower Austria. Where the restaurant “Die Landwirtin” is located. The restaurant is known for its remarkable hospitality and homemade dishes. The best seasonal ingredients and some from their own farm are used. This makes the farmer unique in the region. This speciality of roasted Goose with potato dumplings, red cabbage and slice oranges makes the highlights of tonight’s dinner. Of course with dessert and wine too. Tea is enough for me. Taking care of the intake of alcohol. It was a lovely evening with the Austrian people and proud to say we are the only ex-pat or foreigners that night.

SPRINGTIME NILUTO SA OVEN NA BANAK – BAKED GREY MULLET FISH

👩‍🍳Fish recipes must be freshly prepared and should be on the menu at least once a week. They are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein and vitamins. Today I got fresh Grey Mullet and I decided to bake it in the oven. My hubby loves it when it is grilled. But the weather is not for grilling so better to use my oven. It is springtime now but still, it is cold outside although the sun is present, as you could see I took a walk near my workplace. Eating mullets are not only delicious but also extremely healthy. The omega-3 fatty acids in fish offer excellent protection for the heart and blood vessels. And are also great for skin and hair. Served with white rice because we are Filipino.

YOU NEED…….

3 pieces Gray Mullet, “Banak” in Tagalog

2 pieces Lemon, for Lemon Juice and sliced Lemon too

2 pieces Chili

Haft a head Red Onion

some Chopped Coriander, fresh

Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

FOR DIPPING:

You can have “Toyomansi” a Filipino mixture of Soy Sauce and Calamnsi Juice. or Soy Sauce with pepper, chopped onion, scallions and lemon juice. It’s your choice.

🇦🇹LUNCH BREAK AFTER HIKING AT PIZZERIA PALERMO PURKERSDORF👩🏻‍🍳iTravel

👩‍🍳What to eat before mega march? The day before the mega march, it is best to eat carbohydrate-rich food. Carbohydrates provide you with a lot of the energy that you need for hiking. Carbohydrates are stored as glycogen in the muscles and liver, making them light for the body. But in this case we just had light breakfast in the morning and we took more water with us for drinking. To be specific water lemon. Water with lemon juice thats all to drink for in between so with our dogs. We had our lunch at Pizzeria Palermo, downing some carbohydrates then. We don’t feel hungry during hiking water to drink was just enough for us. How about you how do you prepare yourself for hiking? Share us on the comment section below, I would love to hear your tips and advise.

🇦🇹MOTHER’s DAY HIKES WITH MY DOGS 👩🏻‍🍳iTravel

👩‍🍳Having our break from the city, my daughter and I we decided to celebrate Mother’s day by hiking outside Vienna with our dogs. At the nature park Purkersdorf – Sandsteinwienerwald is a part of the Vienna Woods and is located in the municipality of Purkersdorf in Lower Austria. The approximately 77-hectare nature park is freely accessible all year round. Mother’s Day hikes with our four dogs.Just hike and be happy.

My Mother’s Day weekend will be filled with dog family and my daughter with me. A healthy mama am I to my two kids. 😊 Hiking us a must for me at least three times a week or more. For about two hours or three or even more. Good for my age, aside for being a type 2 diabetic. Moms who are wild at heart or don’t want to skip their daily steps may like this gift. With your family think about a picnic along a scenic hiking trail a great way to spend outdoors time with Mom too on Mother’s day. A bit incomplete for me because hubby and my son has to work. But still there is some other time to do this it should not be on Mother’s day.
