Apr 30, 2008 - Austria - Vienna

We nearly didn’t make it to Vienna after almost missing our flight from Cairo. We know that you must be at the airport two hours before departure for an international flight but sometimes things don’t go to plan. For us it was a ‘quick’ stop at the post office – that took 50 minutes, peak hour traffic in Cairo; which is every hour, and a horrific car smash just near the airport that slowed traffic down to a crawl. As has happened before, we found ourselves literally running through the airport to check in, only to be told that the flight...

The Arnash Adventure

Apr 10, 2008 - Wien - Abschied im Frühling

Es ist schon ein bissl exzentrisch, diese Reise in einer Zeit zu beginnen, in der in und rund um Wien alles blüht. Da es aber diesmal unbedingt zuerst Nepal sein soll, sind eben April und Mai die beste Zeit. Immerhin hat der Frühling in Wien heuer schon im Spätwinter begonnen und wir haben ihn sehr genossen: im Maurer Wald, am Eichkogel, in Seebenstein und vor allem am Heferlberg, einer Rückfallkuppe des Anninger, die Lilo vor etlichen Jahren entdeckt hat. Aus Gründen, die wir nicht durchschauen, wächst hier in unmittelbarer Nähe der...

Mar 26, 2008 - We are about to leave!

אז זהו. נפרדים מאוסטריה. בעוד שבועיים אנחנו חוזרים לארץ לאחר שהות של שלוש שנים באוסטריה ולאחר שהיום שלחנו את כל החפצים שלנו במכולה, חשבנו שיכול להיות נחמד לעשות טיול פרידה מאוטריה ומהסביבה. זאת גם הזדמנות להגשים חלום לרועי שתמיד שואל "למה אנחנו לא נוסעים בקרוון?" אז מחר הוא יגלה. ואם אתם מתעניינים מה קורה איתנו תוכלו לעקוב אחרינו דרך האתר הזה - אנחנו ננסה לעדכן כל יום...

Farewell Austria

Mar 20, 2008 - Vienna, Austria

I've finally made it to Europe! Oh, the little things you take for granted...hot water, drinkable tap water, Wi-Fi access, toilet paper (free public restrooms!), heating, good wine...the list goes on and on. Who ever knew it could feel like home half way around the world? But it does and it feels good to be back in civilization. It is still winter here in Vienna, but Spring is just around the corner. I am "resting" here for a little while and regrouping before hitting the road again. It's comfortable and I've even thought about staying a...

Mar 6, 2008 - Vienna Austria

I saw most of Vienna in an afternoon and I can sai I had not been more pleased with miself or exhausted this whole trip. I arrived around 10:30 and found a place to stai in a short time. I was checked in and readi to explore by 12 and began walking all over. There is the famous Ring which encircled the center and has mani historical sites on its path. After I found a brochure advertising the ring in an hour tour I decided I would take the walk mself and save the guide fee. Later I found out it was a tour from a bus that allowed u to get on...

Branden's Trip 2008

Feb 22, 2008 - Ausgang.

Day 44. Friday 2/22. Firenze, Italia and Vien, Austria. Leaving Florence was sad. After finishing cleaning up the apartment and getting out a little later than our 9 am check out time with my overstuffed suitcase, we settle down next door for our last breakfast there. Also it was a great place to not have to worry about lugging our bags around until our train at 10:40. I played on their internet for while since it finally was fixed, and I have already started planning mini-trips for this summer. I am somehow going to have to find a flexible...

La Dolce Vita!

Feb 10, 2008 - Vienna (part 2 of our first week break)

Sunday, February 3rd we met up with Rachel and Michelle at the train station and left for Vienna, Austria. The train ride was very long, and we didn’t get into the city until dinner time. Rachel’s mother’s professor has a flat in the city, so we got to stay there for free for two nights. We were all exhausted after the long train ride, so we dropped our stuff off, and went to a local place for dinner… I got a fabulous dish of chicken cordon bleu. Then we ran by the grocery store to pick up some things for breakfast and retired for the...

Europe 2008

Feb 3, 2008 - Vienna

As, I said in the Venice entry, we took an early train to Vienna that was supposed to take about 8 hours. Well... this particular train ride was HORRIBLE!!!! We had to reserve our seats on this train, and had bought a "couchette" which is three seats facing another three seats with a sliding glass door closure. We had finally struggled to get all of our luggage into the racks and settled into our seats after the train was on its way when one of the people cam back and told us our car was defective and that we had to move... well we ignored...

Feb 2, 2008 - Vienna

Today Kayla was the first one up with Shane and I shortly behind. We were downstairs having breakfast by 0730. We were mostly packed from the previous night and we headed down to the train station to catch the train to Vienna. We still hadn't purchased any postcards from Hungary and I was hoping to get some at the station no matter their condition. By the time we had checked to see if reservations were required for the train, determined which track the train departed from, and walked to the wrong end of the platform we were now running to...

Dec 18, 2007 - Update # 1

Well our trip has started wonderfully. Veuve Clicquot at the Melbourne airport prior to leaving in the Emirates lounge and we haven't looked back. Vienna is such a beautiful city. Smallish; about 1.4 million people but absolutely magnificent. The weather has been good....sunny...about 0 degrees. We have been well rugged up and I have developed my own test system to identify how many layers are required. I send Anthony out onto the balcony and when he comes back cold we add another layer & send him back until we can confirm the correct level...

Nov 21, 2007 - Telling Time on the Road

Timekeeping on the Road - Kyla writing Admit it... you don't wear a watch...do you? (excluding my Dad of course who owns some incredible Swiss watch that was "born" before I was). No, in fact you likely keep time on your cell phone or blackberry or some other gadget that I am not technologically advanced enough to know about. So what would you do if you were to take a year on the road and were trying to limit your gadgets, as well as spending money? Well I will tell you what Nick and I attempted to do. Neither of us likes the feel of a...

Nov 17, 2007 - Vienna, Austria

We spent 5 days in Vienna, the capital of Austria, and the former imperial capital of the Hapsburgs. We had a great time walking around the Christmas markets, going to the opera, visiting with our friends and family (Rob and Jessa, and Kyla's extended family Mahmoud, Moti and Assad), and generally relaxing in the museums. Some thoughts on Vienna from Nick:

  • Best beer garden ever - Salm Brau: this was the beer garden that Mahmoud, Moti, and Assad took us to. Fantastic beer that was brewed on the premises, great food, and great...
