Since Art's parents have arrived safely (Wednesday night at 9pm) after much uncertainty and longer travel than expected due to volcano bomb in Iceland, I'm keeping this short. We're playing with our visitors!
Here's a glimpse of Vienna from my class field trip on Thursday (a short one):
We had GORGEOUS weather...it could have been a smidge warmer, but let's not complain.
Rathaus (during Christmas each window is a day for the Advent calendar)
We sat through a session at the end of our visit. I didn't understand a ton, but did hear the word 'Steuer' every other second. That would mean tax.
Hofburg Imperial Palace
and more Hofburg from the other side
(and a terrible, huge advertisement ruining the beauty)
Now onto the main shopping streets and always wanting to sit at the outdoor cafés..but no time for that. We were truckin' it.
And, don't stop to window shop or you might be blown back from the OUTRAGEOUS prices. Granted you are usually looking at Dior, Chanel or Burberry.
Part of the Opera House. All the buildings were so big and we were so close, I couldn't get a good shot of most. And I didn't bring our nice camera cause it's a lug.
outside the Burggarten
Some of our peeps
the flowers were beauty!
Hope you enjoyed a little Viennese culture for today.
I gotta take a Vienna trip that lasts longer than 3 hours! Last time it was to pick up Elsie and that was just a 2 hour rush there and back. Good thing I'll be back shortly with my parents and sister in July and we'll hit up the famous Belvedere Museum, Schönbrunn Palace and more that I didn't see this time.
