What's he doing in Vienna?

The air in Vienna can be stone-shatteringly cold in winter. The cafés are warm though, safe vantage points from which to view the snowy streets while sinking into a deep, leather throne, decadent havens where discreet waiters preside and cigar smoking grandees hide behind large, broadsheet newspapers. That's where I'd winter if I had the money.

I've never been to Vienna, but if I did I don't think I'd be patronising the sort of places you describe here.

And you'd still be in the European Economic Area!

@xFiacre I too have heard and read about Vienna. But I have never wished to visit the place.

You are a part of Europe, you could simply drive there if you have the real desire to be there. You could work in Vienna, live there and enjoy the cafés if that really is your desire.

Or Prague, or Budapest, or... Why do so many want to go back to pre-Union (European!) days...?

@pgntwo Oh Vienna. There used to be a romance about the place - spies, not waltzes. Never waltzes.

We have a lovely young friend in Vienna. Maybe we'll lob on her next winter.
