May 1, 2006 - vienna

well, vienna is a great city! very parisian feeling, but a little more grimy and down to earth. could spend alot more time here (especially since there is and H&M store on everyother corner - there are at least 3 within walking distance of eachother!) there are also some great churches and kebabs which i could live off of (and may have to since theyre cheap). wish we werent headed out so soon, but eastern europe is calling!

Apr 26, 2006 - Austria

Getting to Austria turned out to be harder than I was expecting. As the airfares that I bought were the cheap variety, to get from Paris to Vienna I had to go via London & change planes. This normally would be an easy thing to do, if the staff at British Airways had even half a brain. After saying good bye to Al for the week, I headed to the transfer lounge where I had to check into my new flight. Once I had stood in the line for way too long & made it to the check out counter just in time (or so I thought) the very friendly man at the...

Apr 26, 2006 - Back to Vienna...

Written by Renee Today was our airport days. After waking up and having another awesome breakfast (as they say in Italian) with "la mortadella ed il pane con mayonaise". Then we packed and got ready. Mom and Dad went for a walk on the beach. Then we went to the grocery and drove back to the Fumicino Airport in Rome (only 15 minute drive). After driving around the arrivals and departures 3 times, we figured out where the rental car had to get back: the parking. Our first flight took us to Nuremburg (in Germany) and then back to Vienna. We...

Apr 18, 2006 - Vienna... the city of Emperors and Composers (plus expensive places to stay)

Written by Renee Today, we woke up and had a great breakfast with very nice breads and mortadella. Then we walked to the train station again and went to downtown. We walked everywhere through nice palaces and small streets. Every corner we turned around there was something different. It was awesome. We had dinner at a pizza place. Then we took the train back to our hotel, ate, and went to bed since we had to wake up early for THE AIRPORT. We were heading to Italy.

Apr 1, 2006 - Vienna-how the Austrian's do it

Getting to Vienna was almost a culture shock after being in relatively small cities. Vienna is definitely a large city that you must use public transport for. It was strange to hear german being spoken all around us. We were also quite tired at this point, so much of my enthusiasm for tourism had worn out, sorry to say. We checked in out little 3 star hotel that ended up not being too bad after we got out bearings on the metro/tram system. It takes a little bit longer to figure out Vienna's public transport than Rome's, so make sure to pay...

Feb 26, 2006 - Visit the Vatican, the Pope and Travel to Vienna

I get up early and go to the Vatican and I arrive around 7:45 for opening at 8:45. I see a line that goes along the Vatican wall for block and then turns around the corner. I make the turn and it goes a few hundred feet. I'm really surprised it's so long. It does not take long for me to figure out I'm actually in good shape. The line keeps building and buy the time we enter it had gone to the end of the wall I am on and makes a left and around a couple more walls. It must be because it's free today. Daniella told me that whenever there is...

Jan 21, 2006 - Austria: Vienna, Mozart, and Opera

We left Bad Gastein on Friday morning and took the 5 hour train ride to Vienna (or Wien) as it appears on European maps. We arrived in the afternoon, so after checking in, we decided to stroll a little and then go to an opera. I had never been to an opera before, so I was excited. However, after about 3 minutes into the show, I had NO IDEA what was going on! And the show lasted 3 1/2 hours... that's a long time to sit and listen to German singing and not have a clue what is happening! The opera was a Mozart (I'll look up the storyline...

Jan 10, 2006 - Vienna

We left Cesky Krumlov at 6:27am after a long walk up a hill to the train station in the dark with packs on. From there we went to Cesky Budejovice and then on to Vienna. The train ride was amazing - snow everywhere - at least 3 feet of it. We had an 8 seat compartment to ourselves for the entire journey (about 3 and a half hours) and we sat there and watched the trees roll by. Once in Vienna we found the hostel without too much trouble. To our great relief Austrians speak a great deal more English than Germans. We are staying at the...

Jan 6, 2006 - Wien

14250km from Hong Kong. Ohh Vienna... Oh well, I'm definitely back in Western Europe now, I can tell by the prices if nothing else. I had two main aims for my time crossing Europe, find somewhere good to celebrate new year (failed) and try to get to some of the countries of Europe that I hadn't been to all ready. Slovakia was easy, a one hour train journey from Vienna to Bratislava for the day. My plan from there was to get home via Liechtenstein and Luxembourg, I found a great website from the German Railways which has times for all trains...

Jan 2, 2006 - Venice to Vienna...

Vienna was absolutely fantastic for funky, street wear clothing - right up my alley. By this stage, Day 14, we'd seen a fair bit of snow and spent two days with wet feet so when your staying across the road from one of the biggest shopping malls in Europe, well, it had to be done. Around 70% of the tour purchased some form of snow boot. Me and Haydes included. You may note, scrolling through the photo's that I started our day in Vienna in black snow boots, purchased the previous evening. By the end of the, note the different boots,...

Dec 24, 2005 - Week Twenty Five

December 18th (Gary) A late start due to a night out having the odd drink in Sibiu, a great town with a very pleasant atmosphere, the two slightly annoying features were that the best bars only sold bland imported beer like Stella or Peroni and that everyone smokes. Having devoured a fry up breakfast we left Sibiu and wound our way through the snow covered hills and charming villages to the medieval hilltop town of Sighisoara. Picture postcard pretty and small enough to wander round within an hour the historic old town was a real delight,...
