Station, once again we were at the wrong station..
At that point I found out that I didnt have my phone! My mind was racing at topspeed: Where could it be? The last thing I remembered was that I handed it over to Karen (the girl from Canada). First I turned Stefan's room upside down but it really wasn't there. I went back to the hostel and went to her room. She told me she had been sick at the bar after I left haha because of all the drinks. She told me she went to her room and totally panicked when she found my phone and was thinking to herself: Oh my god tell me I didnt take her phone.
So she went to the reception with it immediatley. So I went to the reception to pick up my phone and the girl behind the deks told me she felt so sorry for Karen. She told me Karen arrived at the reception being very confused and being very drunk still haha. She was going to see some boy's choir at 8 in the morning but she was drunk still! The girl also told me she had done nothing with my phone just called her mother in Australia for 2 hours and tried to sell it on E-bay hahaha ;). She was great! So after that adventure we were off to Schonbrunn palace and the Zoo. Or atleast we were trying to get there. We travelled around the metro stations getting off and on the wrong ones untill we finally arrived at the right station at 3 or something! We saw the palace wich was very pretty! After that we tried to find our way to the Zoo, but some woman had sent us in the wrong direction so it took us such a long time to get there.
Finally we arrived and the zoo was like almost closed hahahaha. We still went in and it was great. It was a fast visit like.. he nice an elephant.. ok NEXT! But still it was great we saw some very funny animals u just dont get to see in our Dutch zoo's really! I can recommend this zoo to anyone because it was really great! Most interesting zoo I have ever been to! We saw how the sealions were being fed and luckily we werent standing to close because some other tourists really had to run for it. Some big sea lion jumped of a rock into the water which caused a big wave that rolled over the edges of the tank. That day was a very cold day and the zoo was almost closing so we decided to go back to Karlsplatz and find a place to have dinner. We ended up at this great, fancy Italian place. It had a large bar on the top level wich was very nice and modern.
On the floorlevel there was a nice restaurant so first we had a drink at the bar and after that we went downstairs to have dinner. I had some nice wine and a plate of anitpasto. Wich is like all kinds of different pieces of Italian dishes. We serve it at the restaurant where I work to so it was a safe choice for me. After that I had some Calamari/Scampi combination wich was very nice aswell. After this nice dinner we went to starbucks for some hot chocolate and then back on the Metro to the hostel. We also spent that evening at the wombar and I had to say goodbye to Stefan because he had to get up early for a big test at school. After that I went to drive around the city with Olivier. First we drove out to some mountain to see the lights of the city but we couldnt get a good view. So we went to Oliviers house where he lives with some cool gay-couple. We had a lot of fun! After that I went back to the hostel to pack all my stuff since we had to check out at 10. So I just skipped a whole night really.
