After a long drive from Hannover, I finally arrived to Vienna. Although the drive was long, it was a good one. The train was really comfortable and I even got a snack, hehe. I arrived to the train station at 5:30pm as scheduled. I had already booked a hostel and had the directions how to get there. I knew I had to take the metro, but before leaving the station I'd look for a locker for my big bag. I'd stay in town just for 1 day and didn't want to carry my big bag.
I found the lockers. But the empty ones were high and I'm small... fortunately a guy saw me and offered to help me, how sweet! I was ready to leave. Now time to look for the subway tickets. I read at the city's website about the 24hrs ticket. So I bought one. It was valid for all the local drives, so I was able to use the subway and tram as much as I wanted/needed.
When I arrived to hostel. I asked for my booking and there was it. The lady at the frontdesk was Peruvian, hahaha. She almost cried when I wrote "Peruvian" hahaha. She gave me a map of the city and another one for the public transportation. I didn't have much time in this city, so I decided to go to downtown as soon as possible. I was walking down the hill when I noticed somebody was following me. It was a Chinese guy I helped at the front desk. He spoke a broken English. He was looking for a place to eat. I remembered in my way to the hostel I saw a bakery. So we walked together. I helped him to order his food and told him, I'd go to do some sightseeing and maybe meet him later at the hostel.
I took the subway and went to downtown. I went to Stephanplatz, my idea was visiting the Cathedral and climbing the dome. But the dome was already closed. So, I decided to come back next day to go inside the Cathedral and climb the Steffi. Since I was already there, I decided to take a walk around the square and enjoy the nice views.
My next stop was the
It was almost 11pm when I left the park, but
