So we got a later start then we would have like, but we were still up at a decent time. We met the 2 other guys in our room from New York. Then we took went to the metro to catch the train and who do we see on the train we're about to get on? Thats right..our trip twins again. So we said hi to them on the train and then went our seperate ways.

We kind of just tooled around Vienna, not really knowing exactly what there was to see. It's a very beautiful city, like an outdoor museum pretty much. I had read in the Lonely Planet book about the Kaiserappartments and the Sissi Museum so we decided to go in and I got in as an 18 year old because they didn't ask for ID, and being 18 there means everything is really cheap apparently.

But for the first HOUR of this friggen museum it was all knives and forks and spoons and plates and it was soo boring I couldn't believe it. Luckily later on it got interesting when we got inside the museum that was actually about Sissi, who was a very interesting person. The museum was really cool and we saw inside the old apartments of the royalty. It was awesome.

Then we just did some more wandering around, we layed down in the Volksgarten for a while, it's so pretty there! Then we took the metro back to our hostel and decided it was time to do some laundry. So we did that and then sat and had some beer at happy hour with the 2 guys from our room. Then they decided they were going to make spaghetti, so we went back to change our laundry and also jacked some of their food. We went back to the bar and met a couple of English guys that Darragh and Andy had met somewhere else. Also turns out they spent a week travelling in Spain with 2 of the girls we met in Munich that we went to highschool with..small world? I think so. So that was an awesome night, we had a lot of cheap beer and played some drinking games. Also, Aaron, the guy from Colorado we met in Vienna came to hang out with us. We played some pool too, aand we won. It was pretty sweet. After the bar closed we went outside and got some kebabs. The old man working there asked me if I had a boyfriend and then told Lori I was his girlfriend. It was hilarious, I should have milked that for free kebabs.
