Apparently, I only wrote one blog post about Vienna. Shame on me.
To be fair, it’s hard to get a feel for a city when you blow through like a hurricane. Vienna is classy and refined and squeaky clean. On the other hand, we left the oldest amusement park ever and drove past a bunch of prostitutes just hanging out by the side of the road. C’est la vie.
Wandering around Vienna upon arrival. The architecture in the city is pretty sexy. This is outside the Vienna Opera.
SchÃ¶nbrunn Palace, otherwise known as the Habsburgs’ summer home. Oh what fun it is to pronounce/mispronounce these words!
At the famous Cafe Sacher, where Sacher-Torte was created. Delicious chocolate cake with a bit of apricot.
A Mozart concert at the Orangery. We were the douchebag bloggers who had our cameras out the whole time.
Getting our Schnap on at the Schnaps Museum. Not shown here: lots and lots of Absinthe.
The Museum of Fine Arts, which I didn’t get to explore. But it was SO PRETTY.
The fish-scale escalator inside Swarovski. For those who like shiny things to distract them from the fact that the regular Joe cannot afford anything within the store. (Guilty.)
I don’t even know what this is, but I wanna join the party.
At one of the oldest theme parks EVER, Prater. The rides were absolutely batshit crazy. I cried the whole time, and I didn’t even try any.
This is what I mean.
Shameless Contiki plug.
Have you been to Vienna?
