Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening (depending on when you read this). These are typical greetings in German. I’ve learned some phrases from my culture class. Fun note – learned how to to Austrian Folk Dancing with this class (for free). They love coming to campus and teaching us these things because we’re actually interested, so we’re ‘a fun time’. Go figure!
Vienna was filled with all sorts of fun memories. Ranging from getting ice cream, twice, it was THAT good, to watching a fire show and leaving because it started to become demonic. Felt like a traveling adult when figuring out the subway to get from the hostel to the “downtown” Vienna where most of us hung out. Making new friends, having deep conversations at the end of the day, and laughing together made for a grand ole time (sp?).
Anyway, here are some pictures that capture some of the many moments I had in Vienna two weekends ago. There are so many things we saw that I didn’t get photos of, unfortunately, but I can’t wait to tell y’all about them when I get back.
For now, enjoy!
Last weekend was nice and relaxing, I stayed back for some alone time. This weekend I’ll be staying back to, but hope to go and explore Gaming a bit more. Then…Poland is next weekend!!! Can’t wait to go see St. JPII somewhere there. I think we’re visiting his birthplace and church he received all of his sacraments, not sure. Looking forward to going on that carriage ride too. There were carriage rides available in Salzburg and Vienna, but apparently Krakow is the best place to get one at, so I’m waiting ever so patiently.
*yes I know that’s Italian, German’s also use it ;)*

I am really enjoying your posts. Keep it up because I look forward to my 5-10 min vacation every time you update us on your experiences.
Haha…hope it sustains you for the next 3 months. You’ll have to take a real vacation then.
