Hey everyone!!!!

So compared to Praha, we weren't too excited by Vienna. Don't get us wrong, it was beautiful but I think we were spoiled by our amazing hostel and great times in Praha! Once we arrived in Vienna on Saturday night, we were pretty pooped so we decided to stay in for the 1st night in a while. We got some really good traditional food and called it a night. The next day we got up early and rented bikes for the day! Little did we know we were in for a RAIN/HALE storm :S However, during the day we checked out the castle, this really nice church and did some biking around. We were disappointed to find out almost everything was closed on Sundays and this was our only full day free for touring around. Stef actually found a really cool piece of art on the streets. It's a ballet painting but the paint was more like plaster and it was really cool how the lighting looks like a spotlight.. .im sure you will all see when we get back! When we were on our way to the hostel, we ran into our Scottish friends randomly in the streets and spent the day/night with them, eating a traditional schnitzel dinner and playing some cards and pool back at their hostel. We decided only to stay for 2 nights in Vienna, and head over to Bratislava so there aren't too many pics from Vienna! We are however, headed back to Austria for hopefully a tour of some smaller areas. We tried to attend an opera but didn't have the appropriate clothing required in Vienna!

My friends and I rented bikes when we were in Vienna last year, it was well worth it.
