So, back to the Schönbrunn Palace! It was this beautiful building built in the 16th century. It looks just like a palace (ha, because it is one!) and the rooms inside were phenomenal. No pictures were allowed (as if Europe actually allows you to take pictures of anything worth documenting! Hmph!), but the rooms were so elegant. One room was called the Millions Room because it was worth that much! Yeah, not the stuff in the room, but the actual ROOM was worth millions because the walls were made from a rare type of rosewood. Isn't the insane?!? The WALL is worth more than my entire house
There was also a labyrinth maze in the gardens and I decided to conquer that. And it was... so difficult!! Hahaha. Honestly, it took me so long and it didn't help that I couldn't see over the hedges. Well, no one I guess really could, but I felt so tiny! The I remembered my dad telling me to always go one direction, so I just kept taking lefts until I found it. (Does that make sense?) Anyway, at the end was a terrace where you could overlook the maze you conquered and there were three teenage boys up there watching their last guy friend try to reach them. It was hilarious because they kept guiding him the wrong way and he was getting so frustrated. They made me laugh so hard because I knew if I had friends there, I would have done the same thing to them! lol Once the kid was really close to the end, they ran down the terrace and in the other direction. It was so hilarious. I'm still laughing thinking about it now! Hahaha. People are so mean.
Also, I climbed to the very top of the Gardens in the Gloriette and asked a woman to take my picture and it turned out really great with the entire view of the gardens and the palace except that my EYES were shut! Arghhhhh! How frustrating is that?!?! Maybe I can photoshop them open...? Ha. Oh well, something to laugh about, right? I'll add the picture so you guys can laugh about it, too. :)
Now, to catch my train to Krakow! I'm really looking forward to it, except that it's suppose to rain the whole time I'm there. :(
