Here are some shots from Traveller's recent visit to Vienna.

The city is absolutely stunning; T thinks it is one of her favourites.

We loved and learnt so much at Schonbrunn Castle
{first two pictures}
Inside the castle is a tour of Austria's Royal history and it was ever so interesting, especially seeing portraits of Marie Antoinette and her sisters. The rooms were so lavish and intricately decorated.

We enjoyed touring the city and taking in sights such as the Kunst Haus {a major art gallery}, the Hofburg and the Natural History Museum.

We were also really lucky to watch a ballet of Romeo and Juliet in the Royal Opera House - it was such a beautiful performance. The orchestra were extraordinary and T's favourite part
{aside from the dancing}
was when the cast took many, many bows; while they were bowing, hoards of bouquets were thrown at them.

T has never before seen so many roses.
One of the best European experiences so far.

I remember going to Vienna in high school - I somehow didn't enjoy it - maybe I thought it was too boring. How wrong I was! Your pictures - they totally proved me wrong. They are gorgeous.
