the hills ARE alive with the sound of...


we sadly departed cesky k for vienna and enjoyed a lovely train ride through the rolling austrian hills. we arrived at our hostel- hostel ruthensteiner in the rain with our aussie friends gosia and jimmy who joined us for this leg of our journey. keeping with our budget we went to the local market and feasted on pesto tortellini, red wine and made a game plan of sight seeing for the next day. we took on vienna and roamed her streets with gusto, taking on the butterfly museum, the museum of modern art and some tickets to the sound of music. when in rome! after a delightful evening of song, we headed back to the hostel for a few bottle of prosecco and some witty banter between the aussies and the americans...we say grocery cart, they say trolley. we say duvet, they say doona. we say sweat shirt, they say jumper. oh what a big world we live in. raise the roof jimbo-raise it high! hey now! what what! the next day we feasted on apple strudel and viennese coffee after checking out the schonbrunn palace- the epitome of opulence. the next day we sadly parted ways with our new dear friends and heading off to budapest... things we loved about Vienna...

Anna!
Thanks for the postcard lady. Sounds like you and Jax are having a delightful time.

I am especially digging your food and beverage reports. (Alwayse curious as to what the carb consciouse, hip lady traveler eats when she's on the road) Don't skimp on the details!!!

Miss you both
Jennifer
