Traveling to Austria

We leave Budapest at 8am. Very sad to go. I fell in love with this city and I will definitely be back! I would feel better about leaving if I could take about 20 bags of paprika chips with me!!

Just coming into Vienna, where our guide Ottmar is from. As we go through the old "iron curtain", we hear a little about the more recent history of the area Lots more beautiful peaked red roofs. The signs look mostly German to me.

Driving into Vienna, we pass through the forrested countryside. If these woods are anything like those in Germany, I have a new appreciation for Grimm's Fairytales. These woods are totally creepy!! The trees are dead and lack foliage (winter), but they're so thick, I can barely see through them. The branches would definitely grab at you when you walked by.

Now that we know what kind of souvenirs we are looking for... We're are able to shop so quickly! We are at Café Open Wein for lunch and the people watching is wonderful. Where else would you see a man in a yellow suit?

Lunch:
Tafelspitz (prime boiled beef with Chives sauce, apple horseradish and fried grated potatoes) and a latte.
