Oh Vienna !

Into Austria via a great route through Slovakia, suggested by the owner of the apartment we stayed in. With a further detour by ourselves around Bratislava, we crossed into Austria on a small ferry. Then on towards Vienna, our stop for the next two nights.
Neither April or I had been to Vienna before and we found it literally "gob smacking". The scale of the buildings and more importantly the space between the buildings was huge. The architecture is breathtaking. We both stood in St Stephens Square like two country bumpkins gawping at the buildings. ( oh I forgot we are two country bumpkins)
I don't intend to do a travel guide of Vienna. You can google it or buy a book that's far more interesting than what I've got to say. What I will say though, is it's worth researching Vienna, then come and see it for yourself. In the meantime, here are some pictures of buildings and things:
