To make the countdown to doomsday a bit more enjoyable, we spent last week in Vienna, Austria. I've got much to say about that and will have several upcoming posts covering our visit there. Right now I want to tell you what we did this evening.
Upon entering, the first thing you see is the massive bar which is fully-stocked for any drink you desire. The room is very cozy and modern, with cushy divans, artsy wooded tables and glass. I really wish I had taken a photo of this room but I didn't. I'll post a link to their online photo gallery at the end and if you are curious, you can take a peek.
We decided to sit outside, so we walked up the stairs to the tenth floor where there is another room that leads to the balcony.
From the glass balcony, you can see over the town square.
You can sit in high chairs facing the glass walls.
Or you can sit in the cushy chairs with wood chunk tables. We chose to sit in the front right corner facing the town square (shown in earlier photo) with a view of the Marktplatz, city hall, and other various points of interest.
Then we ordered FOOD!
Vietnamese spring rolls with soy sauce and spicy sauce for dipping
fresh steak tartar
and a pile of grilled shrimp with aioli and another sauce
the assorted cheese platter with a bread basket.
A few more drinks.
Decided to skip dessert.
Of course, there was also a bit of people watching from up above. This group of men was interesting. It's not every day you see a bunch of masked characters walking the streets at night in Lederhosen.
Yeah, okay. So I actually added those masks to the pictures. A girl's gotta have some fun, right? The original photo was nice, but this one is so much more interesting. Don't you think?
Katarina thought it was pretty cool when an old plane flew by.
I'm not much of a person for old planes. I like other flying things, like dragonflies and birds. So when a bunch of swallows starting swooping in circles right above us, I got a kick out of it. They seemed to be enjoying the weather and the wonder of their wings. I spent too much time watching them and only got a really bad shot of one swallow. Blurry. And tiny. And it sort of looks like the photo of the plane. Oh, well. It was fun watching them.
Afterwards we took a stroll through town.
