Oh, Vienna!

Me, Elly, Olivia and Dan (who took the photo above) have just returned from a very amusing and somewhat chilly trip to Vienna. All in all, it was a smooth journey – apart from the cancellation of our first flight out, which cost us 12 hours. easyJet decided it was fine to lie and tell us that Vienna airport was closed. Still, the wares of duty-free helped pass a bit of the time.

The weather was somewhat bracing and provided a good excuse to stop off at numerous bars, cafés (for hot chocolate mit schlag) and even the oddly-floored Kunst Haus Wien, the latter of which had a fantastic Annie Leibovitz exhibition on. And on the subject of photography, Dan took some amazing photos of the trip which he put up on his blog.

Novelties of the trip included the musical Wiesel trains, the Opera Toilet, a plate of spare ribs twice the size of my head, and the regular recital of a particular Ultravox song. And of course, the company. Roll on the next trip!
