Vienna Flight Time: 3hours 15 minutes
ying at the very heart of Europe, Austria’s elegant capital city of Vienna is the perfect destination for romance, sophistication and charm, with its frothy Baroque architecture, glamorous balls, peerless opera performances and strikingly river Danube. Few cities in the world glide so effortlessly between the present and the past like Vienna. Its splendid historical face is easily recognized: grand imperial palaces and bombastic baroque interiors, museums flanking magnificent squares and, above all, the Hofburg – where the Habsburg rulers lived, loved and married into empires. But this historical aspect often makes us forget that Vienna is also one of Europe’s most dynamic urban spaces. Just a stone’s throw from Hofburg, the Museums Quarter houses some of the world’s most provocative contemporary art behind a striking basalt façade. Outside, a courtyard buzzes on summer evenings with throngs of Viennese drinking and chatting. Nearby, restaurants brim with revellers enjoying the pleasures of wine and food, while across the yard a museum café pulsates with beats.
Typical coffee house
Famed for its art salons and coffee houses, Vienna has for centuries drawn artists, dreamers, and innovators from all corners of the continent to its dazzling intellectual and artistic life. From this hothouse atmosphere emerged revolutionary breakthroughs in psychology, literature, art, and music, which reverberated around Europe and indeed the world leading to Vienna being considered both a “city of music” and a “city of dreams”
The City of Music:
The city of Dreams:
It is not surprising that many great composers were attracted to the city they came, stayed and wrote immortal music. The whole world knows of the Viennese Waltz, the Vienna Philharmonics and the Vienna Boys’ Choir but the Viennese musical tradition has continued for centuries, from one great composer to the next, from Haydn to Mozart, from Mozart to Beethoven, from Beethoven to Schubert and onward far into the twentieth century.
Vienna is also said to be “The City of Dreams” because it was home to the world’s first psycho-analyst - Sigmund Freud. A visit to The Sigmund Freud Museum located in the Alsergrund district is a must.
There are many places associated with famous composers, such as their birthplaces, residences, monuments, tombs and burial sites and, of course, the many places where their music was (and still is) performed: concert halls, the Vienna State Opera, the Volksoper, Theater an der Wien and many other venues.
Founded in 1971, the museum covers the life story of Sigmund Freud’s and the history of psychoanalysis. In 2003 the museum was put in the hands of the newly established Sigmund Freud Foundation, which has since received the entire building as an endowment.
Theater van der Wien
Winding lanes, arcade-lined courtyards, timehonoured palaces: in Vienna, the city centre is especially romantic. In the oldest quarters of the city on the Danube around St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the narrow lanes are paved with cobblestones as they were centuries ago, while a stroll along Schönlaterngasse or Domgasse becomes an encounter with the past. Romantic walks can also be found on Spittelberg, a quarter in the 7th district where beautifully preserved houses from the Biedermeier period remain. Of course, Vienna is particularly romantic in the spring. The chestnut trees blossom in the Prater, 400 types of rose bloom in the Volksgarten, and the fragrance of lilac pervades the cities many other parks. You don’t need to walk in Vienna to enjoy the atmosphere - a ride in a horse-drawn carriage has its very own romantic aspects. On the edge of town, the vineyards in the 19th district and the greenery of the Vienna Woods are particularly idyllic and offer a wonderful view of the city. Then it’s off to a heuriger, one of the typically Viennese wine taverns that have long been places of pilgrimage for (new) lovers. Also atmospheric is a boat ride on the Old Danube, in particular the full moon rides with a glass of Prosecco. The restaurant “La Crêperie” even puts together a variety of picnic baskets for the boat ride. Lovers can also have a picnic basket put together by the Villa Aurora on Wilhelminenberg and seek out a romantic spot with a view of Vienna. At Restaurant Artner in the Hermesvilla, guests can choose from a variety of basket options and then retreat for a cozy picnic in the Lainz Game Reserve. Waltzing romantics will feel right at home at one of the numerous balls, which are held in Vienna not just during Carnival. Romantic dance evenings can also be enjoyed on a (private) waltz dancing course. For many people, a candlelight dinner is the very essence of romance. A candlelight dinner for two is offered by, for example, the Romantic Crystal Dinner in Vienna’s Giant Ferris Wheel. One of the most famous pictures of a couple kissing is also exhibited in Vienna: in the Belvedere, lovers can view Gustav Klimt’s masterpiece “The Kiss” up close and even exchange a quick peck themselves!
Romantic Vienna River Danube
VIENNA OPERA BALL FEBRURAY 27 2014 The Opera Ball, held at Vienna’s magnificent State Opera House, is deemed the epitome of ball culture and a top-calibre social event, attracting celebrities from around the globe. This mega event is fully given over to waltzing bliss at a venue where usually opera stars make their big-time stage appearances. The 186 couples dancing the opening polonaise - ladies dressed in white and men in black - experience their “introduction to Viennese society”. For others, it is an unforgettable evening at this imposing edifice on Vienna’s Ringstrasse boule-vard. Reservations should be made without delay! www.wiener-staatsoper.at
VIENNA ICE DREAM JANUARY 23 – MARCH 9, 2014 Vienna is nothing if not romantic, and that fairytale sparkle of possibility and magic comes truly alive in the cold month of January, when the square in front of the city hall is transformed into a vast, gleaming ice rink. At night, coloured lights illuminate the glittering ice and the magnificent Rathaus, and skaters are accompanied by waltz tunes as they sweep and curve and twirl their partners across the frosted square. The ice rink stays open until early March and is a spectacularly romantic way to spend an evening in this beautiful city. www.wienereistraum.com

With Mother’s Day soon approaching and mothers today seemingly staying lovelier for longer, we have witnessed a delightful new phenomenon: mothers and daughters whose strong family resemblance is radiantly apparent in real life, and not just seen by comparing old and new snapshots. To illustrate our point, we’ve collected pictures of famous mother-daughter double-take duos. What’s that old adage - look at mum and you’ll see what the daughter will look like in years to come. Well here are a few where that statement couldn’t be any truer!!
GOLDIE HAWN & KATE HUDSON These California golden girls Goldie Hawn (69) and her actress daughter Kate Hudson (29) not only share the same looks, they also share the same fun-loving attitude towards life.
MAMIE GUMMER & MERYL STREEP Meryl Streep (59) bestowed her beautiful porcelain skin, strong nose and all-American good looks to her daughter, Mary Willa Gummer (25). Known by friends and family as “Mamie,” Gummer shared the screen with her mother in “Evening,” playing a younger version of her mother’s character. She also recently received good reviews for her portrayal of Sally Adams in the 2008 HBO miniseries “John Adams,” as well as for her Broadway debut in “Les Liaisons Dangereuses.”
GWYNETH PALTROW & BLYTHE DANNER The ultimate power mother-daughter couple, Blythe Danner (65) and Gwyneth Paltrow (36) share the same fair beauty, delicate features and understated style. Gwyneth Paltrow and Blythe Danner are two of the most praised actresses in Hollywood. Blythe says one of the proudest moments in her live was when Gwyneth received an academy award for her role in Shakespeare in Love. The pair have starred alongside each other in the television movie Cruel Doubt and in Sylvia.
PARIS AND KATHY HILTON Separated by only 22 years, this mother-anddaughter pair share a clear family resemblance. Paris (27) and her mum Kathy Hilton (49) almost look identical, with the same facial features, and their shared love for big, blonde “statement” hair (and a 365-days-a-year tan).
DEMI MOORE & RUMOR WILLIS Rumer, (20) the eldest daughter of Demi Moore (46) and Bruce Willis, shares her mother’s strong jaw, dark looks and sharp facial features.
SARAH FERGUSON AND PRINCESS BEATRICE Sarah Ferguson (54) Duchess of York and her first daughter Princess Beatrice (25) share the same red hair and similar facial features. 18
JERRY HALL AND GEORGIA MAY JAGGER Georgia May (22) has followed in her mumâ€™s Jerry Halls (57) famous footsteps as a model and you can certainly see why, with those long slender limbs, blonde hair and full lips.

Start your Spring Cleaning Early
Be a step ahead and prepare your skin for spring.
The months of winter can play havoc with our skin. If you’re not exposing it to freezing outdoor temperatures, you’re sat inside with dry heating or having hot baths and showers in order to keep warm. It’s no wonder our skin struggles when we’re repeatedly exposing it to such a cycle – warm air indoors, frigid air outdoors, warm air indoors… repeat, repeat, repeat. We’re often also guilty of neglecting our skin in winter, crammed as we are under all of those layers, especially as no-one else apart from our nearest and dearest gets to see most of it anyway. But then, before we know it, the warmer weather arrives, it’s spring and we still have dry, scaly, itchy and dull skin. Make sure you’re not caught unawares, desperately trying to buff, shine and scrub your face and body before it can be seen by the outside world. Here we present a few tips to get your skin ready for spring…
Cool Off In the Shower
Give your Skin a drink
Moisturize the Lips
We’re not advocating you take a cold shower in the middle of winter, but hot water really can dramatically damage your skin. Dial it down a few notches and enjoy a warm shower instead. Add moisturizer immediately after your shower to help lock in all that moisture.
A change in seasons, especially from winter to spring, can wreak havoc on your skin. Coming out of dry, cold days into warm and windy ones means your already dry skin is fighting to stay hydrated, leaving you with somewhat cracked and scaly limbs.
Your lips struggle with the harsh winter cold and frost just as much as the rest of your skin does, so don’t forget them as you prepare for spring. The sugar trick can work well for lips too; rub them with a little granulated sugar to give them a home-made exfoliation.
Gently pat your skin down with a towel before adding the cream. Vaseline do many different creams that help to keep your skin soft and supple, though we like the Cocoa Radiant Lotion from Vaseline’s Total Moisture range the best. With its multi-layer formula, the moisture really penetrates the top layer, the core and the deeper layers of your skin helping it to stay silky and nourished and avoid that dreaded dryness.
Ensure you drink plenty of water (8 tall glasses a day at a minimum) and moisturize your body when you hop out of the shower in the morning, and before you go to bed at night.
Follow that up by adding an intensive lip balm or a layer of petroleum jelly. Use the balm several times throughout the day to keep the lips smooth.
Get Rid of Dry Skin Before your skin can emerge fresh, dewy and triumphant, you’re going to have to first scrub off the dry, scaly skin on top. You can find many different exfoliators at the drug store, or you can make your own. The key here is to use ingredients that are a little coarse or abrasive to generate the sloughing motion; you can either use a little baking soda (it helps to effervesce) or add a small amount of sugar to your body wash. The roughness of the sugar will help to exfoliate the skin and rid it of the dryness. Use it regularly (two to three times a week) to give your skin a healthy glow ahead of spring.
Look After Your Hands and Feet It could be said that winter plays havoc on your hands and feet the most; after all, your hands in particular are often exposed to the harsh outside temperature. The best time to rejuvenate your hands and feet ahead of winter is overnight. Exfoliate first in order to remove dry skin before smoothing petroleum jelly over your hands and feet and then putting socks and gloves on to wear as you sleep. You may feel silly going to bed with socks and gloves on, but trust us: your hands and feet will feel incredibly smooth and soft after just one night.
Get a Skin check
Book in a beauty overhaul
Before you head back into days spent lounging under the hot sun, it’s wise to book yourself and your family in for a skin check.
Summer quickly follows Spring (depending on what part of the world you are in) so it’s definitely time to up your grooming and beauty regime.
There’s nothing that signals coming out of winter like a pair of pale pins! ‘Tis the season for skirts, shorts and floaty summer dresses though, so head to your local salon (or supermarket if you’re confident in home beauty regimes) and get a faux glow, thanks to fake tan.
Most places offer these services by bulk billing, but try to book now because the wait list can be quite long. Check everywhere and ensure there are no questions marks around any freckles or moles this summer.
Book in for a wax (eyebrows, legs, underarms), get a manicure and a pedicure and prep those nails to be put on display. Book a hair appointment and try a new colour or style – summer’s a great time to go lighter and shorter. Feel fresh and come December you’ll be ready to take on the world.
It will leave you feeling fresh, bronzed and happy in your shorter hemlines. Now you are a blossoming beauty!
Beat cellulite With the warmer weather comes revealing summer clothes. To get your body and legs into the best shape they can be in time for bikini weather, it’s time to get your limbs in order! Firstly, reduce the appearance of cellulite. How? While there are a number of creams and gels on the market that claim to assist this process, the best place to start is your exercise regime. Up your weekly quota and start each day with dry body brushing in a circular motion over your upper thighs, bottom and legs. SUNSEARCH MAGAZINE
