Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Secession building

Gustav Klimt and a number of other artists founded a new art association in 1896 called the Secession. An exhibition centre was built in Vienna to house their work.

The Art Nouveau building created  a lot of opposition when it was built in 1898 but is now a very popular attraction in Vienna. The leafwork dome (golden cabbage) can be seen from quite a distance.

  1. Great building style to house the works of Klimt and allies. Even the flower pots are handsome and the gold at the building top is perfect.
