Vienna, described as Europe's cultural capital, is a metropolis with unique charm, vibrancy and flair.
And Wiener Eiskaffee is always yummilicious!

I had Balkan-Pfanne, kind of like Gulasch served with the yellow thing which was sort of like Gnocchi.

That pretty much conclude our day in Wien. The next day, we had to leave right after breakfast to the south of Austria, Klagenfurt. Everything packed, hotel paid, we arrived the underground car park....... We were stuck! In the car park! The machine kept saying that the ticket was not valid, it was given by the hotel, with the parking fees paid.
After talking to the hotel reception on the phone, bla bla bla, went to the autopay machine to activate the card(instructed by the reception), it still didn't work. In the end, Georg gave up, pay an extra 15 Euro and hooray, we got out of the car park!
It was snowing lightly while we left Vienna. Yes, snowing, in April.
The drive to Klagenfurt was a nightmare. Georg kept asking "where are the highway?" "Ya, 20km more, and we'll be on a highway..." We were up on the hills, or should I say mountains. It was snowing, and all white. The road was narrow, curvy, and ........ I had to take an aspirin because of that.
We spent a night at our friends in Klagenfurt. Early next morning we left for Hannover. This time we were driving on a high way, heading to Salzburg.
We could go left to Italy, or middle lane to Slovenia, right to Salzburg which leads to Germany.
While driving towards Salzburg, the GPS kept reminding us that there was a tunnel in front of us. I found that odd. So I click the options button and found that the GPS was set to 'avoid the tunnels'!! So if you don't want to go under, then you have to go over, right? That explained why we were crossing the mountains and were not using the highway from Vienna to Klagenfurt! How silly!
Despite all the unpleasant adventures, we had a good time in Vienna. It's a beautiful city that I would love to visit again and it's VERY clean. No broken beer bottles. ;-) The drive to Salzburg was lovely as along the way we got to see beautiful scenery, beautiful mountains. And we made it home to Hannover safe and tired. :-)
