Vienna Day 1  
Now for today's update!! I got to Vienna at around 11pm, and I was so pleased my hotel was only thirty seconds from the airport. I took a shower and got to sleep 50 HOURS after waking up for work on the 31st. It wassome good sleep, yo. No fooling. Dead to the world. I slept until 11 and then checked out so I could move on to the city hotel. I'm at Hotel Mailbergerhof, which is wonderful!

Everyone automatically speaks English to me and I sort of love the :O when I answer them in German. Today I went to the Folter Museum (it's about torture...shut up, it's run by amnesty international or something) and then Haus des Meeres. House of the Sea (HAHAH I wrote 'hose'). I saw fish and various! And the aquarium is in a flakturm which is a huge concrete tower which was meant to be used when the city was bombed. It is nine stories tall. SO, it has a balcony and I got cityphotos! Then my feet hurt and it was hot so I came back here to rest. I'm going out for dinner later, and then for a night time wander, because I love the city at night!

Tomorrow is Melk, and then I'm going to Castle Belvedere, Schoenbrunn, the Hofburg, Goodness. More places... I just love being here. It's awesome. It's kind of surreal though because I always dream about it and now I'm actually HERE here. So strange... It ACTUALLY feels like I'm walking in a dream in a completely non-wankery way!

Photos here More later!

Isn't the Hose of the Sea that thing they're doing down at the bay?

I gotta see this torture museum sometime. Every sadist worth his salt clearly should.

IT just might be, Lewi-san.

Nah, it was informative (My Templar totally didn't get any ideas...) but small. The one in Rothenburg is MUCH better. We can go there :D.

Now I have the image of Bernard Black telling someone a torture is dreadful, but short.

He's my husband, Baby. Him and David Wells.

Okay, FAKE husband. Shhh don't tell them, they get sad.

I'm sure they'd get along famously.

Oh, like I'd let Bernard anywhere near precious David!!

David could be his new Manny.
