Vienna was a different matter entirely, this is a place where something is always going on, and for free! The day we arrived we were picked up by Ceenu and driven (a novelty by itself) to her flat. Where we relaxed for a bit and caught up, over sandwiches. Then we went out in the evening to the Danube riverside area, where I managed to both sit on a sofa and trampoline, on the Danube. Another thing that was on my list of things to do. Well not really but it went on afterwards and was ticked off. Then we tried to go to a club, but at the first one guys had to pay to get in, and the second one was a floating cattle market
The next day dawned, and we were up with it to collect Dave and Lucy from the station. We waited for 20 mins then went into town to go shopping while we waited for them to call us. I got a new pair of shoes for €10. Then they rang and said theyīd been at the station the whole time. So we went back and there was still no sign of them. Unfortunately we got the wrong train station. Oops. So we picked them up and went on a day of sightseeing in Vienna after breakfast. Highlights included the cool cathedral, and the Incident with the waiter. Basically we got in a huge arguement over about whether we should pay extra for our coffees, as we didnīt get what we ordered. We relented in the end as he wouldnīt speak to us in English and Ceenu couldnīt be bothered to argue to vehemently as the guy was being a bit of a dick.
That evening we went out to the opera. Well a huge screen outside the Rathaus playing opera anyway. It was really nice, a cool relaxing atmosphere. Then we were going to go clubbing, but none of us could really be bothered so we went back to the same place as yesterday and had a beer instead.
The next day we went to a palace and went into a kidīs maze and playground
