Wed 17 June Viena and around

A cold wind today which was a bit of a shock. Off to do our Hop on Hop off bus trips. We did 3 different lines giving us the inner town which we had seen the day before mainly, further out of town where we got off at the Hunderwasser Museum then finally went out to the outside of the city, up into the hills to view the whole of Vienna from a high vantage point. Lisa, you will be pleased to hear Dad got his full monies worth here as we utilised the bus from start of service to end of service at 8pm. From the high vantage point, as the day was closing in and we were on the last trip of the day, we were able to get out to take pictures and get back on the bus in 10 minutes. It was just long enough. You travel through the forest, winding up the hill and it is extremely pretty travel. There are also some very pretty and extremely old villages on the way also. Perhaps we should have done this trip earlier to be able to get out more but the day went so fast.

Hunderwasser Museum took up a good part of our day and we are so glad we went there. We have seen his work in Kawa Kawa in. New Zealand where he created the best toilets in NZ. He loved NZ and elected to be buried there. He was very well travelled so I see that as an honour that he should choose NZ for that.

Now we go to Prague by train. Vienna is very pretty with lots to enjoy. We did, however, prefer Salzburg. We definitely know, we enjoy smaller towns and villages best, just as we did last time we were over this side of the world.
