Vienna on the evening we got to the city

Day 17 and the ‘Contiki Cough’ had caused me to lose my voice, although the actual cough was gone. Aside from not being able to talk, I felt absolutely fine, even with all the sickness going around. Also, I woke up in Munich with a huge hickie on my neck, which I don’t remember getting. It turns out, after talking to others from the tour, that I’d met a guy at the club the night before, and he decided to give me a Munich souvenir. Some of the tour guys made fun of me, and what they liked to call ‘the Munich mosquito’. We had a nice breakfast at the hotel, then got on the bus to make our way to Vienna, Austria. Before we got to our hotel, though, we got a tour of the Schnaps Museum (complete with free shots). Once done, we checked into our hotel, Austria Trend Eventhotel Pyramide), and had about 40 minutes until we left for on our optional excursion (if we had decided to do it) to a Mozart/Strauss concert and dinner. The concert was okay. Not my type of music, but it was a good experience. After the concert had finished, we walked over to the restaurant for a good dinner. When that had finished, we headed back to the hotel and got ready for bed. Kerrianne and I had both decided that we were going to have an early night. I don’t think anyone was having a big night, mainly deciding to have a few drinks in the bar.
