A few days ago I made a trip to Vienna and I was able to add another country to my list of countries visited to visit some friends and visit the city (and because the flights were 30 euros return).
I had a bit of trouble getting to the airport because my train to Bologna was 45 minutes late and I was a bit late, but everything arrived on time. I arrived in Vienna and I had to take a train to the center and then go to my friend’s house, what a surreal adventure, the underground in German, an experience that I would not recommend to anyone.
I would tell you the places I visited but I’m going to be honest, I don’t know the names, I only remember the SISÍ Empress museum and the Leopold museum, where I saw paintings by Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt, and the Prater amusement park. I just know that I walked a lot during the days I was there and I saw a lot of parks, buildings, sculptures, palaces, the Danube, etc.
Things I didn’t see, the Vienna cemetery, the Belvedere palace inside, the opera and something else that I’ll keep to see next time with everyone that I didn’t see this time.
It was a wonderful experience, the city is beautiful but a bit expensive, the food there is spectacular and I would love to go back to see my friends who live there, who were on holiday in other countries and I couldn’t see them during those days. The only bad thing about the trip was the weather, it was raining almost all the time and the streets were steep, which I am not familiar with because where I live is like Valencia, flat, with no hills or elevations.
As long as I didn’t take the metro I walked everywhere because it’s like Valencia, straight streets and the center in a circle and everything is visitable. We only stopped to eat and to take shelter from the rain.
Something I love to do in all the countries and cities I visit is to go to the supermarket and see what they sell and the differences between countries. Call me weird but I love it.
I think this is a quick summary of my weekend getaway to Vienna, soon I will tell you more about my personal project with my paintings and totebags, and my future trips to the beach and Rome. And believe it or not, I’m still working all week on a thousand things, sometimes I work in some music or cultural festival, …but I’ll tell you about all this at another time to dose it.
See you next time.
