For my most persevering followers, a short recount of our third day in Vienna. The most unique aspect of our third day, is that my loving husband had to leave to return to Montana for work, while my parents and I continued further travels. This particular day, my father also left us to travel to Bratislava, Slovakia for work-related duties. Did you know you could just hop a train in Vienna and be in Slovakia within an hour? I love Europe.
At any rate, after a lovely morning at the market, it was an afternoon with just my Mom and my son!
Let it be known, I stocked UP on the spices here. Or perhaps, let Customs know….!?
Once we said a somber Auf Wiedersehen to my hubby (honestly, not easy, it would be a long 10 days!), we continued on through the 1.5 kilometers of market…until the lil ‘un fell completely asleep.
Here, a spritzer with pomegranate. Yummy. Let’s review: my child historically has been a POOR napper. What I have to owe for a two hour nap while Mom and I feast on gourmet Turkish food, I will never know. So, once he awakes, the search for a playground begins.
I know I have blogged endlessly about churches, and even I am getting tired of the ceiling pics, but this one is unique. It has an elevator to the top of the dome, apparently it has something to do with the renovations, they probably make so much money on tourists taking the lift, they will never tear it down!? So, as you view the pic above, picture me and Eliot at the very top peering down. 🙂
You can see the Vienna woods in the background, but only through chain-link fence. Harrumph.
