Pizza is great, don’t get me wrong… but c’mon, Pizza, followed by Pasta (of 25 different varieties), followed by Lasagne, for various meals is just a little too much for me.
BTW: Non, I found the place you’re getting your minestroni from in Rome(kidding), I swear it tasted just like how you make it… yum :)
Arrived in Vienna yesterday, and I’ve just spent today goign through the Schönbrunn Palace and surrounds.
The train trip from Rome was… weird. Ian, what was that movie we watched, umm… Road Trip (Eurotrip?) the “Oh, mi scuzi!” scene… well… it definitely wasn’t like that, but there were some weird things going on… like the people that didn’t actually have tickets, still cramming onboard… they sit in the corridors (there’s fold out seats in the corridor walls) and just pay whenever the conductor comes around, and then if a seat is vacant, they jump into it.
All in all, got very little sleep.
Had lunch/dinner yesterday in a nice little pub hidden away in some small street. Schnitzel (Veal?) and Potato Salad (very much like the potato salad Yvonne and you make, Non — no mustard that I could see though, and had green shallots on it). Yummy.
There’s no great abundance of signage as to where the Underground stations are, which makes it interesting trying to find the cloest one without a map.
Thinkgeek needed to bring out the Will Return Clockbefore I went on Holidays, it would’ve been very appropriate for me to hang on my cubicle at work right now.
I’ve found that I can go direct from Vienna to Berlin, so thats what I’m doing Friday night, not sure how long I’ll be there – probably Monday/Tuesday at this stage. Looking for hotels/hostels right now…
Oh, and X-Men 3 starts tomorrow :( … I don’t want to know how it goes, or how good it is, or anything like that…
PS: Brad, re “you’re in ROME. the home of good food, good clothing, good football and lovely ladies.”, you can have the football and clothing, but the rest I’ve noticed in abundance (and in Nice too)… Aiee! Warm Weather!
