Austria Musings .. time is flying by
And as usual time is flying by like crazy. Tomorrow is already Monday again which means I will have already been
here for a week. I really don't know how a whole week has already passed by but I guess that's how it goes.
Wednesday I accompanied my mom to her physical therapy appointment and afterwards we had lunch at the Seedose, a really nice restaurant by the lake. Lucked out with the weather as well and were able to sit outside enjoying a lake front lunch. The first few days I was here it was actually almost hot during the day but towards the end of the week a weather front passed through which made things a bit more unstable. Not terrible by all means but definitely some rain, wind and unstable weather mixed in.
Thursday and Friday I had to work. But Friday we were able to squeeze in a nice Chinese buffet lunch with my aunt prior to me needing to start work which worked out well. And the weekend was jam packed with activities as well.
Saturday I took the train into Vienna and met my friend Andrea at 10am for breakfast at Cafe Stein. I had not been there previously but it definitely did not disappoint. I had a delicious egg scramble with smoked salmon & avocado accompanied by some lovely Earl Grey tea. From there I took a nice scroll as the weather was cooperating well. A bit windy but sunny and good picture taking weather. Met up with Lydia at 1516 around 1pm and we hung out there for a while before moving on and stopping at Kolar and ending at the Hard Rock Cafe. As usual too much to eat and drink but definitely a fun day for sure.
And today, Sunday, I took the train to Salzburg and met up with my Salzburg family. Rain for the most day but had a lovely lunch nonetheless followed by a nice coffee/cake and prosecco stop at Gerti's apartment where my friend Anneliese also stopped by and we had some time to catch up and hang out before it was time for me to return to the train station and catch the train back. It's a 2 1/2 hr train ride one-way but always worth it.
Definitely a bit tired now and kind of wish it wasn't Monday tomorrow but it is what it is. I do have some days off coming up later in the week so there's something to look forward to for sure. :)
