Driving from Switzerland to Vienna by car is a long trip. Of course, are there planes flying and trains rolling. After the outbreak of the Eyjafjalla and the ash in the air, I was happy that I didn't bought a plane ticket. I'm not in the mood to hang around at an airport for several days and to wait till the ash is gone. I like it more to sit behind a steering wheel, drive for 8 hours , and to know when I will be home or at my destination. At the moment there is no ash around but I think that this can change every time. I arrived at 6 p.m. and met Zoltan in our hotel room. He arrived during the day because his trip was a bit shorter than mine. Before dinner we went for a little sight-seeing by foot in the inner circle of Vienna. I have to say that Vienna is definitely the right place for people who are interested in Middle Ages and the architecture of that period in time. Unfortunately I wasn't able to eat a real "Wiener Schnitzel" because the Italian restaurant we have chosen didn't have that meal on the card. So I will try it again during my stay at Vienna.
