Temp is just on minus 1C and it's snowing moderately with no wind.
Went into Vienna by subway to see a friend to-day and had a nice time.
We have been email friends for just on 2 years and he and his wife live in Vienna, coming from USA over 20 years ago.
He is a concert pianist and plays the forte-piano.
That is an instrument that Wagner and Mozart composed their music on, well over 150 years ago and he plays their music, their way, on their types of musical instruments.
Have just about planned the next 6 weeks of my trip. Will post it in the next few days when I finalise all.
Have found some really bargain fares to Innsbruck and up the huge chair lift they have and then to Neuschwanstein Castle in Lower Bavaria, then to Lake Bled and back to Munich, then to fly to London for another crazy fare of just 26Euro. Can you believe it's all coming to an end, seemingly, so soon?
Weather...+1C...that's now above zero...expecting rain for 3 days and temps to +10C by Friday.
Dorm buddies...No one in the dorm except me last night! Awesome.
I had been feeling "off" for a few days prior to the Ball...I think it might be the expresso shots...I've only had 2 since I've been here from Maccas, but both times I've felt "off colour" for a few days. The only other thing I can think it could be is the thick shakes here. Had 2...on the same days as the expresso...I love ice-cream in the colder weather, but it looks like thick shakes and expresso are a no go zone now.
Serve me right for going into Maccas...
Actually, another time, when I first arrived in Prague, I thought I'd try one of their $2 wraps and I was crook for a few days too...so, that's a big wake up call. Had forgotten that. I don't think I went into them last year, except in Frankfurt, to use their WiFi and loo, so I bought a thickshake there. It's getting to be a bad habit...
OK...that's it. Maccas is off the radar now!
So, I stayed in my PJ's all day yesterday, after the ball, just ate fruit, drank tea and water and just did my blog and slept and did some washing and cleaned up my little nest, hoping I'd have it all to myself for a little longer. Not so...2 other women in here now. One from Poland and another from Korea. They are both asleep now...it's just on 9pm...
Spend to-day...21Euros for lunch and drinks and 5 Euros for some mandarins, some eggs and a bottle of fresh orange and kiwi juice.= 26 Euros = $32 Ausd...
That's all for to-day.
See you tomorrow...
