Vienna Day #2 part 1

Friday in Vienna was a bit of a busy one so I'm going to split it into 3 instalments. It was our free day, to do as we wanted with the afternoon booked to do a Segway Tour. More to come on that in the next post.

I'm not exactly an early bird but Julie is, however we didn't wake until 9.20am! Our room was so dark and so quiet, dispite being on a busy ring road around Vienna, we were knocked out. We must of needed it and when we went down to breakfast we weren't the only ones who'd had a lie in.

Our hotel was minutes from the shops and not the tacky souvenir shops either but beautiful jewellery, clothes and shoe shops. A womans paradise.

This shoe shop was amazing, we all had to go in and browse. So many beautiful shoes.

We didn't have a lot of time to actually shop, but we did a fair bit of window shopping and grab a bite to eat.

Here's Monica helping herself to the contents of Pete's wallet. Such a lovely bloke.
We then found a quiet area by a fountain to sit in the sun and have our lunch.
Natalie & I.

An action shot of Nat helping me up without us both falling in the fountain.

Spot the tourists
We were taking photos of the Opera House. They were showing Tosca  that week which we did try to get tickets for the previous night but sadly weren't able to. They have a huge screen outside though, so whilst the opera is on people can stand on the street to watch and hear it. It would of been amazing to see an Opera - something I've never done.

Loved the trams running round Vienna.
A really beautiful City.

And then we we were back to the hotel to get ready for our Segway Tour. A treat I was determined to experience and boy was it fun.

Back soon with the full adventure...
