Earlier that day and the day before, we walked around Schonbrunn Palace, (which took half a day by itself) stumbled across an isolated church (Kaiser Joseph something) that had no tourists and looked like a castle, and saw most of the famous historic buildings in Vienna's inner city. On Saturday morning, we met Stevie and Jenny at a cute little cafe in the south end of the city. Then we walked with them to a huge farmer's market only open on Saturdays, which had tables set up with everything you can think of (edible and not). Later that day we celebrated Stevie's birthday with some of his friends at a place called 'Sand in the City.' Stevie had rented a beach volleyball court for a couple hours. It was a lot of fun! After, we got some amazing pizza from the booths set up in the area, and enjoyed our last night in Vienna. We are planning to go to the Vienna Opera House and see a ballet. We heard that if you go a half hour before it starts, you can get cheap standing room tickets, but you still get to see the inside of the opera house and a ballet too. On Sunday it is off to an unplanned stop on our trip, Bratislava, Slovakia. It is so close and inexpensive to go there from Vienna that we had to do it. So two nights in Bratislava and on from there.
P.S. We did end up going to the ballet! The tickets were 8 Euro and we ended up sitting in awesome seats! It was wonderful!
