Buffet Trzesniewski

Eating alone in Vienna. I love these neat little open-faced sandwiches (1€ each) at Buffet Trzesniewski. I wash it down with Pfiff beer in a tiny mug. Apparently, the place is a Viennese institution owned by Polish immigrants and it opened in 1902. Franz Kafka used to eat here.

What I Wish For Myself

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
