Dec 16, 2006 - Vienna, Austria

Vienna was last on our itinerary of Europe. The weather didn't really warm up after Budapest so I was still roughing it with what little winter clothes I had. We did quite a bit of walking around, drinking more gluhwein, and enjoying what little time we had left abroad.

Nov 3, 2006 - When I was in Vienna...

So much to tell and so little time...and still no USB port to upload photos. The situation is getting desperate and my memory card is rapidly filling up! So after the gorgeous canals of Venice, where I paid 51 Euros for cough medicine and cold and flue tablets (it was an emergency!), I headed off to Vienna, Austria. It was really cool travelling that day because it started snowing and the last time I saw snow was when I lived in the USA and was about 10 years old. Of course we had to stop and have the obligatory snow fight on the way! On...

Oct 26, 2006 - A Wein Whirlwind (Part 1)

So, feeling better after venting my travel woes to my adoring public, I enjoyed my last day in little Krumlov. I have to say that Skippy was one of the nicest hostel owners I have ever come across, and I urge anyone in that part of the world not only to frequent the town, but also to pay Skippy (and her dogs) a visit. I hope I remember to make her a blues cd and send it to her at some point.... I got a shuttle from one of Skippy's contacts to Vienna, which I was not going to do at first, thinking of the costs, but from assurances...

Oct 3, 2006 - Our Visit with Werner

Well, Vienna is as grand and beautiful as ever. If there is one thing about this city, aside from the superbly integrated transportation system that includes buses, trams, suburban trains and metro, it is the immense presence with which all the historical buildings tower above you. With a fantastic combination of baroque, gothic, classical, and renaissance styles, architecturally, Vienna has something for everyone. Accompanying all of these wonderful buildings is an endless supply of musical endeavours ranging from super talented street...

Oct 1, 2006 - Vienna

22 hours from when we left our car at Master Park, we finally arrived at our hotel room in Vienna. That was almost 2 hours ago. The first day of our vacation started pretty smoothly. We slept in a little and took our time getting ready in the morning. I had a last bit of packing to do since I did the late shift at work the night before (wow, that seems so long ago already!). We took Gander to Camp Happy Paws in the morning and had a leisurely afternoon around the house until it was time to head to SeaTac. We got to the airport almost 3...

Sep 25, 2006 - Vienna Palace & The Treasury

Sept. 25th. The first stop this morning was the Schonbrunn Palace, the summer home of Maria Theresa. One of her 9 Palaces. The buildings and gardens cover acres and acres of property. The wealth is too much, it's almost sinful! But of course, quite gorgeous! Next we toured the Treasury - and oh what treasurers, the crowns, jewels, clothing and art of the past. All under glass and guard. Beautiful, stunning displays. After we had free time to eat lunch and observe for a couple of hours. We wandered around the very long pedestrian mall...

Sep 24, 2006 - Vienna

We drove back to the border and entered Austria. It's Sunday and trucks aren't allowed to travel on Sundays. The drivers are all waiting at the Truck Stop, drinking beer and eating sausage. We will be staying in Vienna (Wien) for two nights. We've had fairly early mornings, our wake up call usually comes around 6:30, suitcases out by about 7:00 and on the bus at least by 8:00. We've done a lot of walking and are feeling a bit weary but it's all so wonderful and we don't want to miss a thing. We are taking advantage of our free time this...

Sep 20, 2006 - Vienna

Days 1-4, Vienna: Vienna ranks among the prettiest cities that we have visited on this trip (especially pretty at night). There are really cool buildings, including palaces, throughout the city's historic center. Vienna is the former home of several famous musicians, including Mozart, and is considered by many to be the music capital of Europe. This year marks the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth, and it is being commemorated throughout the town with Mozart-themed concerts and exhibits. The largest and cheesiest of the concerts is the...

Sep 15, 2006 - Mozart and the Hapsburg Empire

Vienna, Austria We saw the Opera for only 2 euros each! Thanks to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London we were well rehearsed in standing for long periods of time. 2 euros bought us a ticket for the standing room section at the top of the Oper Haus. For a sold out show, we got tickets an hour before. After a long day of sightseeing and meeting a funny Serbian who hates Austria and wants to move to America, we decided to go to the Opera. Chris zipped on his pant legs and in we went. It was amazing! The music and the voices touched us to the...

Sep 7, 2006 - En Route to Vienna / Vienna

After some administrative tasks in the morning (sending a package and buying train tickets) I caught the train to Vienna at 1pm. Arrived in Vienna at 4pm, the hostel is just around the corner from the train station (Wombats Hostel) (). After I left mz stuff, I caught the Metro to the Museum Quarter to have a look around. The Leopold Musuem was closing in less than an hour so I decided I would visit the next day. From the museum quarter I walked into town and felt right at home in the main shopping strip. I had dinner at a schnitzel haus and...
