Ljubljana, sorry, I cheated you with Vienna

I am the biggest fan of Ljubljana. You know that already, don’t you? ;) But now and then I like to go out a bit. Not just out of the city, but of Slovenia as well.

This time it went out to Vienna. It was one of the capitals I haven’t seen yet and I found a nice offer for a one day trip. And if you like the baroque style, the Austrian capital is the city to visit.

Usually I don’t travel with travel agencies due to my big need for freedom. :P I dislike fixed itineraries that include activities other want to do. Haha, indeed, I can get quite grumpy when I have to adjust. :D Well this time I wanted just to sit on a bus and don’t care about traffic, parking and other logistics that come with a trip.

First we went to te amusement park with the Madame Tussauds museum and the famous Prater. I didn’t go inside because I am not interested in looking at celebrities for an hour and a half. :P

I was waiting for the city centre where we drove after the amusement park. The opera, museums and other baroque arhitectures blew my mind. :) We had about 2 hours of free time in the city and the task number one was to buy a letter opener. I am a passionate collector of these charming tools for envelopes, and wherever I go I buy one. :) And I actually use them! :) I found one and only store with letter openers. Huh! You can imagine how joyful was I joy when I got it! :D

The summer residence of Maria Theresia (what a lucky woman!), the castle Schönbrunn, is the most magnificent attraction in Vienna for me! We had a few hours to enjoy in chambers, gardens … Everything is so big and charming …
