Italy

Buona pasqua a tutti!

I’m in our dinky hotel lobby, and I’m having a hard time typing from this Italian keyboard. it’s been a good couple of days so far. the very short lent holiday is not nearly enough to see this wonderful country, but i’ll take it, it’s better than not being able to visit at all.

Austria

Riesenrad


I think €8 for one ride is a rip off, and there is practically nothing to see up there at night. It’s still charming though, Before Sunrise was filmed here and also the cult classic The Third Man.

Wiener Staatsoper


Vienna State Opera. It’s currently playing Puccini’s La Boheme, I’m not too familiar with it but I know it’s where the broadway musical Rent is based from.
A tiny improvement on my Google Adsense earnings has got me posting again. And by tiny I mean a few cents. But it still counts for something.
