whattafuck?!
bump! i thought i wont be having internet while i am in vienna but i was wrong, my friend, ariel - has been very generous of lending me his laptop for me to use, as its his apologize to me that he wont be able to accompany me the whole time i am in wien because he has a tight schedule at work! bump again.

from düsseldorf, germany to vienna austria was a very very nice flight! i didnt encounter anything wrong, well till at this point. i flew with austrian airlines, and it was good! the service was tres bien, the aircraft is also good, the flight crews and even the food! usually i am not a fan of airline food but i like their sandwhich! our flight was even delayed for about 20 minutes but we arrived in vienna 5 minutes before the landing schedule!
unbelievable! thats why i like the german-speaking airlines like air berlin and swissair and now my favorite - austrian airlines!

i arrived in vienna safe and smooth which was for my standard totally impossible to happen! hahahaha got my bag also pretty fast! it was the first one to come out of the belt! which was fantastic!

now the only little challenge was to find the sbahn line that goes to the city, because the airport ist not located in vienna itself but in a small city called schwechat.
there was a giraffe mum and offspring in düsseldorf airport! hahaha
everythign was completely new, it changed, but i trusted my instinct and found the sbahn! i dint encountered any problems buying tickets which was 3.40 euros to enter vienna.

everything was perfect! too good to be true.

i catched my sbahn to florisdorf borough then got out of geiselbergstraße where my very close friend from düsseldorf who moved to vienna 2 years ago - ariel was waiting for me!

we talked alot as we havent seen each other in 2 years!!!!!! amazing!!!

i raided his kitchen and found philippine noodles and ate them! hahahahha

....and now i am going to take a hot bath ^_^

and tomorrow explore vienna by myself!

hello - i could not recommend any hotel since i am always staying with friends in vienna but the place to stay is in stephansplatz - it its the center of vienna, the grand architectures like the st. stephens cathedral, hofburg palace, the city hall, the parliament for ex. are located in the center and near to stephansplatz, then the museum quarter is a couple of subway ride from it. lots of resto that offers diferent cuisine are also in stephansplatz plus some deisgner shops. if youre looking for a little bit budgeted try the area near the central station (europa platz) a street called mariahilfstrasse runs across - it is a long shopping street that ends in the opera and also museum quarter with lots of medium range shops and little hidden streets with some restaurants that mostly only the locals knew!
