Hi everyone!

We entered Vienna in grand style yesterday, aboard the train from Prague virtually in our own compartment. It was pretty amazing, seeing all the beautiful countryside stretching before us, but nowhere near as breathtaking as this city itself. Those of you who know us well will be unsurprised to learn that almost as soon as we got here we managed to get lost, and not just this, but to send two friendly New Zealanders off on the wrong tram! However, after about half an hour of waiting we discovered it was actually the right tram, so it's OK. Continuing in style, we strolled down the lavish boulevards into the district of palaces in the evening, getting opera tickets to continue our cultural whirlwind for only two euros each! On a lesser cultured note, we did have muffins at MacDonalds, but then they are cheap and were about the only place open. The hostel here is amazing, and we already met a really nice Canadian girl (unfortunately she's going today) but the place is ultra modern and makes a pleasant comparison with where we stayed last. I hope all of you at home are having fun, and I promise to keep you posted. But now we are off to enjoy all the city has to offer. Ah, Vienna!

Love, Richard and Eleanor
