This is a very ‘strange’ year and even the Advent time will be different from what we are used to. Whatever the corona situation is it can’t prevent us from enjoying this time of the year!

The ice princess Finja in the Tiergarten Schönbrunn is growing fast. Now she weights respectable 100 kilos so she’s not so little anymore. She visits mama Nora’s milkbar 1-2 times a day but otherwise she eats big portions of fish, meat, fruit and vegetables.

Wir wollten Flocke und die Babies in Juni besuchen. Leider wurde die Reise verschoben. Die Babies wachsen schnell, jetzt haben wir schon kleine Kinder gesehen. Ich habe mich auf Flocke und Nachwuchs sehr gefreut.

The heat wave just going on and on and on …. but the polar bears in Vienna don’t seem to be too bothered by the extremely hot weather.

Maybe Nora and Finja are dreaming of the snow and ice but they look quite happy with their life.
