January 1st: Every year when I was a child I would wake up early, have breakfast with my grandmother and then sit in front of the TV to watch the Vienna Philharmonic New Year concert with my grandfather. Afterwards I would daydream about attending the concert one day, sitting next to a Japanese lady in a gorgeous kimono, and clapping hands to the Radetzky March following the instructions of one of the best conductors in the world.
Now that my grandparents are gone I keep this tradition alive, although without them is not the same… Anyway, I still daydream about visiting Vienna on New Year’s Eve and attending the concert in a Valentino dress if possible. I hope one day this dream will come true! (Including the Valentino dress please). Last year I visited the Musikverein, not the New Year concert, but still it was beautiful. I’m a step closer, I guess!!
So, if you don’t party too much on New Year’s Eve and love a good concert, I highly recommend watching the concert with a nice breakfast. It’s the best way to start the year!
In case you actually want to go to Vienna and attend the concert (lucky you!) you can get all the information (programm, how to get your tickes, etc) here.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
