Under-dressed in ViennaSeptember 16, 2017 in Austria
Yesterday saw me arrive in Vienna at around 11, so I jettisoned my heavy rucksack and set off to see the sights. Everywhere you turn in the centre there are ridiculous buildings. Before the walking tour I had a traditional Austrian Käsekrainer. It's essentially a cheese filled bratwurst shoved inside a hollowed out baguette. Perfect!
Met some other backpackers in the bar - one will be in Slovenia at the same time as me. Played giant jenga and took advantage of cheap happy hour beer.
Today I walked around sweeping up the rest of the major sights of Vienna, before deciding spontaneously to head for the Opera house to catch a show. They sell cheap last minute standing tickets on the night for an otherwise sold out show. Shame Opera is shite. Nice building though. Left after an hour. Hilarious that I paid €3 and people sat in the row in front paid potentially over €100. Also I'm proud to say I wore my Rovers shirt into the Opera house whilst everyone else was suited and booted.
Slovenia tomorrow and less than a week until HJ joins me in Venice :)Read more
