Vienna
We left Prague and I made a pretty big mistake... we made our train reservations the day prior to leaving and I didn't check them, I just presumed that the reservation was for Prague Holesovice... Evidently not, we missed our train and had to wait 2 hours.  The next train was actually 45 minutes faster so it wasn't a major inconvenience.

We arrived in Vienna and after 30 minutes of figuring out how to get a tram ticket we got on the number 1 tram.  4 stops later we got off...doh! wrong stop, had to wait on the next one and with the help of google maps we found our hostel.  We arrived at our hostel (Porzellaneum) which was pretty cool, it was actually converted student halls so we had our own room which made a nice change.

  Unfortunately, being student halls, they had communal showers! So after the quickest shower of my life, we headed out to get some food and drink.  We had some food in Centimetre, a nice restaurant close to the hostel, after that we walked about but it was still really hot so we went for some pints.

Next day we slept in in our nice single beds then went on a bus tour. It was a bit lame but we got up to speed with a lot of Austrian history and got to see some pretty nice buildings. Back to centimetre for some food and back to the bar to finish where we left off.  Checkout was at 9am which sucked, and it seemed that everyone else that was staying on my floor decided to get up early to avoid traffic in the showers, so corner space was at a premium. I'm glad I was too hungover to care!
