Prague to Vienna

Time to leave this beautiful city with its cobblestone roads, beautiful river, unique architecture and superb affordable food. Did I mention the hot women? The % of stunning women is amazing . It is raining for our final day but that is no drama and the weather has been great. Time for one last hearty breakfast of meats and cheeses and then we wait for Boris to return to take us to the train station for our first experience with European rail. I am told we are on first class for our 6 hr trip so lets hope they throw some food in around lunchtime. The Hotel Elite ended up being great, nice and quiet, excellent breakfasts and even the wifi picked up after at first day.

The system at the station works well. You only know your platform 15 minutes before leaving but all went smoothly. A little old lady carried our heavy bags up into carriage and then hoisted them over head to overhead racks. Then held her hand out and said money! I was still in CZech mode and handed over 5 Euro instead of 5 cronau. CLP fainted. First class was nothing special , the seats we comfortable but service non existent and restaurant car hopeless.

Raining when we arrived in Vienna but once again car transfer waiting and the KK Maria Therese in Vienna is a very nice hotel and our room had bath! We headed out in light rain and ticked off a few must sees and do’s. First up was St Stephens Dome which was tres impressive and then on to Figlmuller for the world famous Schnitzel which did not disappoint. For dessert we backtracked to the Cafe Mozart for the equally famous Sacher Torte. They then rolled me out onto the street and luckily by now the weather had cleared. We spent about an hour on a slow wander back to ou hotel checking out some stunning sights like The Hofburg and Rathaus by night. Stunning.
