Easter Weekend in Austria

IMG_20190420_232927_711Figured I should make an update since it's Sunday and about a week since I posted. So hello from Austria. And IMG_20190421_195525_725goodbye really. Because we are already leaving Austria tomorrow. :) 

I left NYC on Wednesday and arrived in Vienna on Thursday morning. Took the train out to St. Poelten where my dad picked me up. We then had lunch with my aunt which was nice. Friday I had my hair appointment at 9am which of course took a long time. But the end result is great as always and I was able to get some reading done while at the hairdressers. And when I was done my parents and I went to a different restaurant for a late lunch. It was a restaurant with continuous hot food service (a lot of restaurants outside of the big cities only serve hot lunch until 1.30 or 2pm) so that worked out. 

Saturday we went to a Heurigen (vineyard that also serves food) and had a nice leisurely lunch there. The weather has been pretty perfect so we were able to sit outside which was nice. Same with today. I spent today (Easter Sunday) in Vienna visiting with some friends. Took the train in and back. Had brunch with Claudia at Motto am Fluss which was really nice. We were able to sit outside which was great. Although after sitting in the shade for a while we were a bit cold and ended up walking to some benches in the sun and sitting there, chatting for a while. After that we ended up having ice cream/gelato before I headed to Schoenbrunn to meet up with my other friend Andrea. At Schoenbrunn they had the Easter Market going on. And holy crap --- there were so many people. I didn't really think about this. Easter Sunday, Easter Market, perfect weather == the perfect combo of a ton of people. It did make for some nice pictures. After walking around Andrea and I headed into the park to sit on a bench in the shade to chat and catch up. Much more relaxing than mingling with all the crazy crowds. 

After meeting up with Andrea I took the train back to St. Poelten and connecting to St. Georgen to get back to my parent's house. Spent the night hanging out with my parents and tomorrow we are already off to Croatia. Well first stop will be Slovenia tomorrow night, then Croatia on Tuesday. The weather has been great since arriving in Austria but I think that streak will break on Tuesday. Oh well. I am sure we will have a good time in Croatia even if the weather isn't perfect.
