Spring Break Part 3

From Verona we took a night train to Vienna, Austria. We had a room to the four of us with beds!
We arrived in Vienna at 8:30 in the morning, to a little bit of rain, but nothing too bad. We stayed in Vienna for 2 nights at a very nice hostel with a very nice view of the city.

The view from our hostel in Vienna. It was rainy/cloudy most of the time we were there but that didn't stop us from enjoying our time!

This was my favorite building that we visited while in Vienna. It in English is called the Donau City Church by architect Heinz Tesar. The inside of it was my favorite part. I also really enjoyed our tour of the Spanish Riding School, but unfortunately we weren't allowed to take pictures.

I love the warm feeling of the wood and all of the natural light that the small circular windows let in.
By the time we were in Vienna, we were ready for a break from Italian food. We found some great Viennese food the first night that we were there, and then the second night we stumbled upon a Mexican Restaurant. (We had been craving mexican for 2 or 3 weeks). Then the next morning we left for Budapest.
Budapest met us with amazing food, an amazingly located hostel, some awesome museums, and a day at the public baths, so overall, a great time!

We happened to walk by as people were arriving for some event at the museum. If you look close you can see one of the men that was twirling fire.
