The next stop on our adventure was Vienna. We got up at silly o'clock and caught the very nice & quiet train from Prague. We had a few little sleeps, and watched the beautiful scenery go by - mist, mountains, trees, the sweetest little houses, and lots of sunflower & pumpkin fields.
We found our hostel & dropped our bags off before heading out to explore the surrounding area. I was so tired that I nearly had a breakdown trying to find somewhere good and inexpensive for lunch - in the end we plumped for an Italian place which was actually really nice.
It was finally late enough for check-in, so we headed back to the hostel for a shower & a doze, then bought some picnic bits from the shop nextdoor. The lady on the front desk told us about a festival nearby called Buskers, so we headed there.
We saw some really fun stuff, all set out in front of a beautiful white building with bits of turquoise and gold. The huge puppet lady scared me a bit. I think it's those eyes...
After that we just wandered around, looking at all the huge, grand buildings. To be honest, I couldn't connect to the city - it all seemed a bit soulless to me. We headed back for a little drink at the hostel & grabbed an early night, ready for another journey the next day...
