Wien (Vienna)

So once again I fail myself on consistent writing. So I decide to catch up on the train.

Vienna is a beautiful city with a lot of sites to see. The first day however I arrive in the early evening from a long day of travel and so I was uninterested in any of these.

Instead I made friends with the girls in my dorm I admit it was rather intimidating at first. But they were lovely and three also got to a university in Wales. WOOP. They’re out for three weeks and should be finishing their last week now I think. After the initial awkward conversation starters we all settled into the conversation. They invited me out to dinner, and of course I accepted. After amazing pizzas, risotto and undercooked pasta we headed back.

I’ve found that there are only two hostel beds: One as hard as a wooden board, the other soft a pillow with a significant amount of stuffing pulled out. In vienna it was the latter. Every hostel I go to seems to alternate.

The next morning i woke early and wanted to get started I left the girls to wander around on my own. A lot of wondering that day. Saw sights That I had missed on my initial trip. This time I defiantly feel more accomplished.

Over the next three days I saw lots: the beautiful butterfly house, the desert and plant rooms as the large palace further out from the centre, oddly shaped buildings and cafe area, the parks with amazing statues of horses and people (like Motzart) as well as great icecream, a small ensemble of musicians playing the classics.

A highlight though was defiantly the museum of music. A really interactive and fun museum. Highly recommended to anyone.

The last day was a luxurious train to Munich, didnt even have to wake up too early either.

I'm a second year Zoology and Conservation student, studying at Bangor University in North Wales. I love Wales for the its opportunities to explore the outdoor, and so frequently go one walks with friends, as well as the odd bit of rock climbing and horse riding. Though on of the great things about where I live are the opportunities to get involved in conservation work out in Snowdonia...
