One of the most amazing sights was this statue high up on a hill at Tatabanya in Hungary (it is a apparently the largest bird statue in Eastern Europe)
I spent some of the journey filling in my travel journal.
We were impressed by the windfarms that stretched across the countryside. Many people in the UK object to them but when you think of the free electric power these places generate it makes sense to me.
This church was just around the corner from our hotel. We have stayed in the same hotel before but had only ever walked in one direction so hadn't seen this before.
My feet had suffered a set back - as they were so sore from the walk the previous day - I bought some shortie socks to wear with my shoes for the journey and I rubbed up a huge series of blisters on my ankle....
|I have deliberately made this shocking pic small !|
We didn't walk far the first afternoon - just far enough to buy a travel pass and to get a coffee and then later a meal.
The next day was Sunday and the Museum Quarter was a short walk away. When we went to buy tickets for the two places we decided to visit we found that one of them had free entry!
I loved the decorative walls and ceilings at the entrance to the Museum quarter.
I was keen to see the Gustav Klimt exhibition.
One of the things that fascinated me most was seeing examples of his writing!
We stopped at the museum cafe for a drink and shared some cake. Hubby had a mango lassi and I had cappuccino!
The next part of our visit here was to the Egon Schiele exhibition.I did not know of Schiele and I found some of his art to be quite wonderful and some very disturbing.
Hubby headed out pretty quickly while I continued for a little longer.I came out to find I had missed a fashion parade (It was Fashion Week in Vienna)
We headed to a cafe across the square for lunch and although I have already added our mid morning drinks I will join Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday
Hubby had a latte while I had diet cola - I opted for a delicious veggie burger and hubby had the difficult task of an assemble your own sausage sandwich!
The decor was interesting
We headed for the MUMOK (Modern Art Museum), Hubby reluctant at this point. There was a brilliant band playing on the steps.
I was quite disappointed by the exhibits - I think I have been spoilt by Tate Modern and the Pompidou. I was pleased it was a free visit!
Bad photo - I think I was in shock!
I did like this though..
The best things about this museum were the views from the windows
Little did I know - hubby was exploring these places from the ground...but that's for next time, as he took me to see what he had found!
I do hope I haven't kept you here too long!
Thanks for looking, Chris
