Prater
Vienna, Chopin noted in his notebook: "I feel weird, I feel sad – I don’t understand it – why am I alone!" and further: "Today, the Prater was beautiful, a lot of people for whom I don’t care at all, greenery which I admired, the smell of spring, this innocence of nature reminded me of my childhood feelings. A storm was coming so I went back home, but there was no storm, only sadness came to me – why? Today, even music cannot console me, it is late at night now, and I am not sleepy, I don’t know what I miss."

London
London. Chopin writes a letter to August Franchomme: "I am already installed. I have finally my room – beautiful, large, I can breathe and play there. The sun has visited me for the first time. […] I am not doing anything yet. I have several boring visits […] I am wasting my time on nothing – it’s all."
After his arrival to London in April, 1848, Chopin stayed first in a luxury apartment at 10 Bentnick Street, Cavendish Square, and next he moved to upper-class apartment at 48 Dover Street, Piccadilly, where he had three pianos.  More information:
