Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't updated in several weeks!! :P i've been awfully busy.
This is such exciting news: right now I am typing this from our hotel in Vienna.
Daniel and I have been overseas in Europe for just over two weeks now. We caught a plane to Paris (stopped Bangkok for 3 hours on the way) on the 1st of December and stayed there for about 5 days. Paris is so beautiful, with lovely buildings! The Lourve was definitely my favourite thing as I really love art- we ended up staying there for 6 hours!
After Paris we caught an overnight train to Rome, and stayed there for about 5 days too. All the monuments there are so huge and grand and amaying :) I loved the Trevi Fountain and the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel is wonderful.
Then we caught a train to Venice and stayed there about 3 days. Venice is kind of surreal with its tiny alleyways and canals and hundreds of tiny bridges over them. Unfortunately we didn't go on a gondola ride because it was so expensive! I bought a Venetian mask though :)
So after that we again caught an overnight train to Vienna, and this is our 3rd day here. I've actually had time to do a bit of window shopping here! :P The city is fun to stroll around, though it is just SO cold!! I think it was about -3 degrees celcius today, many many degrees colder than what it ever gets to in Melbourne. It has been snowing here the past couple of days, which is so surreal as well as i've never seen real snow (in a city), other than snow high up in the mountains when i've gone skiing when I was a kid. We've visited the old imperial apartments, such grandeur and decadence all in the Rococo style! I really loved looking at it all.
In a couple of hours we are off to Budapest to stay with one of Dan's family friends, and we will be there hopefully until just before Christmas or even a bit after. So exciting and will be good to have a bit of a rest (and also wash my clothes cos i've been wearing 2 sets of clothes for the last 2 weeks.. haha!!)
Ok there is someone waiting to go on the computer, so that's all from me for now.
Here's one photo of Daniel and I in front of Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna.
Thanks for reading and thanks to new followers! Hopefully i'll be able to update a bit more but unfortunately there won't be many photos for the next few weeks! (and definitely no photos of me fashionably dressed!) :P
I'd love to hear from you, and hope you keep reading :)
