Another schlecht Sunday. I reiterate that we are not spending our remaining time in Austria checking places off a list; the day just lent itself to a new exhibit at a favorite castle (I have several favorites), with lunch at a favorite Weinschank afterward.
To all the new friends, Herzlich Willkommen!
To those bewildered by the redirect from Tails From The Vienna Woods, allow me to explain.
The House of Liechtenstein is my favorite. Wanting importance but not being royal, they did the next best thing: they bought their way into favor of the Holy Roman Empire.
Not quite either, but on occasion that’s how it falls out.
Our final full day. Once again Anna Grace was studying, breaking to lunch with friends from ICL. Tony and I were awake with the first trains of the District Line, sipping our coffee and plotting the day. The weather seemed to be holding for a day outing to Dover and so to St. Pancras we went to catch the train. We were hoping to avoid the London Marathon crowds and thankfully Mother Nature stepped in with the assist.
Like Paris, London is always a good idea. The city is home to around as many people as there are in the whole of Austria, and visiting felt like the urban equivalent of forest bathing. English spoken EVERYWHERE! Look Right! Diversity! Shops open on Sunday! Great Indian Food! Free Museums!*
