We had the entire day in Vienna. I was looking forward to a charming city, but I was disappointed. Ruth and I chose the bus tour and unfortunately, we got a tour guide that spoke in monotones with a cadence that consisted of one or two words, then a long pause, then another word, then another long pause, then a phrase, etc. Very disconcerting. We also sped through the town on the bus, passing points of interest at a speed that did not leave much time for consideration of what had passed by our bus window.
When we finally got off the bus at the Albertina Museum, we began our walking tour. The walking tour was equally poor. Just not our day.
For the sake of fairness, I should point out that the Maags were on the same tour as we were and their review of the tour was much more favorable. Different strokes…
We did manage to capture a few points of interest, but to be honest, I’m not sure my descriptions are accurate.
Finally, we broke off the guided tour and began our free time walk. Our group made a beeline for for a coffee shop (Gerstner’s) to sample the Viennese pastry and coffee.
I had a scrumptious sour cherry strudel and espresso. It was outstanding.
