Vienna

    The trip started in Vienna. I had a day to myself to just wander around and soak in the sights.

    Its a nice place, even though I didn't have much of an idea what I was doing, seeing or going, but its a nice safe feeling place. The museum was great. Its a big collection of rooms, each one focusing on a specific area or time period. On one floor its natural history, starting way back in the prehistoric, each room stepping forward through history up to modern times. Very clever and enjoyable, even if I had no idea what any of the signs said.

    The sheer amount of history in the place is amazing.
