Vienna then 12hr kip
The morning breakfast at the hotel was much needed. It had been snowing overnight so our brisk walk down the street saw us take a U turn back to the hotel for our thermals. The wind was freezing this morning. We needed beanies and gloves. After heading into town to gte ourselves orientated, by chance we happened to pump into probably the richest street in Vienna. Louis Vitton, Tiffany and Co... you name it Anna Lisa found it. This street is known as the Kohlmarkt. But no purchases thank goodness or we may have been home in a hurray. We pottered around for most of the morning as we like to do on our first day in a new town. The Austrian way of life is pretty casual. No one is in a hurry and nearly everyone is polite in the street. We are getting used to passing people on the right hand side of the pathways, but it may take some time. At the big cathederal in town the Stephensdom, we were harrassed by ticket sellers to go to a concert/ballet/opera for 30 € each. We were keen but passed. Further exploring saw us find our first Palace. I forget the name already, maybe Theodore... that doesnt sound right but anyway it was nice walk through the gardens. Our journey home that day saw us on a quest to get some camp stove fuel so we could cook some dinner in our hotel room. We found some late in the day, but it was a gel paste rather than metho liquid. But it didnt matter because what started as an afternoon kip in our hotel room at around 4.30 pm, turned into a 14 hour sleep. Ann woke up at midnight to kill some time to write in her journal, but Rohan slept the whole way through to 6am the next morning.
