First Day in Vienna, Austria

We apologize for the relatively brief post, but we decided to take an impromptu visit to Vienna, Austria, for an three-day weekend. We flew in last night and have spent the day enjoying everything that Vienna has to offer. One surprising thing is that the Christmas Markets started today, with the largest one starting tomorrow. They don’t start in Germany until the 23rd of November, so we didn’t expect to find them starting already. We will fill you in on all of the festivities, but here are a couple of photos to give you a feel for our first day here.

    You lucky, lucky people! I love Vienna with a passion having spent a large chunk of 2001 there. It’s one of my absolutely favourite cities anywhere in Europe.

    Do enjoy! I have marvellous childhood memories of Vienna, which was a such a lovely and nurturing environment. We’d go on walks near home, at the Belvedere 🙂
