Jun 25, 2006 - Vienna and Cesky Krumlov

Vienna was just fantastic. In this case not because of the city itself, although it is quite a fantastic place, but because we spent a few wonderful days with our good friends Jill and Tom. They had the foresight to book a perfectly plush, Ikea-furnished apartment found on craigslist of all places, and we spent most of our time relaxing, cooking and sharing stories from our incredible travel experiences. Thank goodness we had their pad to hang out in, because Jonas and I were seriously hurting on the Euro and could only afford a dingy,...

June 16, 2006, 5:35PM Wow! It's been a while since I've been able to post, I know. The time has just been flying by while enjoying everything with Paige and Tyler. I guess I haven't even written since they've been here with us. We have done so much these past few days, it seems like it has been weeks. I'll try to recap things as they come to me, so this will probably seem like rambling, but hopefully everyone will have a pretty good idea of what we've been up to. Paige and Tyler joined us in Prague a few days ago (I can't even give you...

I took a midday train to Zurich from Interlaken, a small two hour trip that winded through Switzerland. I arrived in the city at about 6 p.m., so most stores werw closed or closing and the area around the train station seemed very baren. It took me a good 25 minutes of continuous walking (with my heavy packpack mind you) just to find a place to sit down. I lucked out, the cafe I chose, also the first I came across, was next tot he river and mostly empty, save a few older folks watching the Sweden vs. Trinidad and Tibago football game. Not...

Mark's Eurotrip 2006

Jun 12, 2006 - Vienna, Austria

John and Kevin woke up in Venice to another beautiful sunny day. We went and talked to our hostess and found out how to get directions to another Carrefour and to the closest internet cafe. We spent a good two hours replying to emails, updating the website and booking accomodations in Berlin and Amsterdam. We found out that we would probably have to start camping in Nuremberg and Hamburg, so we added camping gear to the list for the second task of the day. We went to Auchan (the italian version of Carrefour and Wal-Mart) and found out that...

May 24, 2006 - Vienna, Austria

We had managed to cross paths with our friends Daniel and Karen again and a bit more organised this time we stayed in the same hostel so more of our time was spent goofing around then it was sight seeing but we did manage to fit a bit of that in too. The first night we found a beer called Steigl (Daniels surname is Streigl) so we thought this must be a sign from above to drink this beer. Our tight budget kept us mostly in check but we still savoured a little sleep in the next morning. Our big day consisted of seeing the main sights of...

May 19, 2006 - Improvisations, Part 2: Attack of the Slimeballs

Kids, don't try this at home! You know how Mom always said never stand up on the roller-coaster? And the you'd hear Dad, chuckling in the background at the memory of his childish foibles? And now he's a useless trunk with no head? The roller coaster has well and truly begun. I'm at the lovely Baia Mare county library, checking my email. And there's good news: the German section of Radu Stanca National Theatre in Sibiu wants me back to direct, probably in 2007. Wicked. And then there's bad news. Really bad news. The Serbs have pulled out....

Just a short entry to say that I am now in Vienna (Wien) Austria now after a 14 hour overnight train. Sad to leave Italy so soon, but this will work out well and get us back onto track. The bad weather is back, but we will survive. Just showered and doing laundry now, so nothing exciting. Will complete a better entry probably tonight.

May 15, 2006 - Vienna, Austria

We arrived in Vienna late at night and Uli drove us around the central ring. This road is the center of Wien and showcases its most impressive buildings. It loops around St. Stephans Cathedral, a massive sandstone gothic cathedral. You see the city hall, another massive gothic building, parliament is a giant romanesque classical building, where that friendly looking angel sits right in front. There's the entrance to the emperor's palace, which is a citty within itself. Has like 2600 room over 240 000 acres.. was that the right number? There...

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...
