We arrived to Vienna about 8:00pm local time on Monday the 9th, Jamie's B-day!! That was exactly the reason why we arrived late was Jamie's b-day...we spent over half a day in a health spa and body treatment center in Budapest (described in our last entry). 

So we were only able to grab a bite to eat in a local cafe that was filled with smoke (typical euro smell), but the food was good...Josh got a goulash beef dish and Jamie had the pork dumplings with sauerkraut! 

The next day (yesterday) we woke up too late for breakfast in the hostel, so we found a small cafe again but this one had the usual euro breakfast; rolls, ham, cheese, butter, jelly and juice/coffee.  It was good and cheap!!  Then we spent the day acquainting ourselves with the city, walking around, trying to find open museums (but didn't), and shopping!!! 

This morning we DID wake up in time for the hostel's breakfast and it was the same food as the morning before, but half the price!!! The hostel offers an "all-you-can-eat" breakfast for 3.50 euro!!  So we obviously stuffed our faces...enough to have to take a food-nap after!!!  Another reason for the nap was it was DUMPING snow outside from about 10am--3:00pm!!! It was beautiful to watch but rather ugly to be out in.  After the snow stopped we took a long walk and got some pizza, and again went shopping!!! 

Tomorrow we plan to see the museums (if they are open) and do a bit more sight seeing...the weather is supposed to get progressively better so we will have no more excuses to shop!!

Take care everyone!!!
Josh and Jamie
