Vienna Adventures – Day 1

We all slept late this morning. Called over to Papa’s room at 9am and woke them up! We all got ready and went downstairs for breakfast in the hotel. Again thanks to Ty’s work with credit cards we have a fancy status at this hotel and it earned us free breakfast. This was a savings of $15 per person which equaled $75 per day and $300 for our four day stay! We definitely wouldn’t be eating here without the vouchers but are so thankful for them because this buffet is so good! I love european breakfasts that include olives, hummus, kombucha, and all sorts of yummy pastries.

After breakfast we realized we missed the hotel shuttle so we ended up using Uber instead to get to the Vienna City Center and the Natural History Museum.

The kids love a good dinosaur display and all the stuffed animals are always entertaining so we try and visit the Natural History museums wherever we go. L hasn’t been a fan of the animatronic dinosaurs we’ve seen lately. He needed to be held and then was hiding under Papa’s coat in order to get past this guy. 😆

After a few minutes like this though he realized it was ok.

Both kids loved the interactive displays they had.

The building as well was just incredible!

Right across the street was the Hofburg Imperial Palace.

Then we walked to the Naschmarkt and found some lunch and a drindl for Ryder.

At certain crosswalks we noticed their walk signs are two people with a heart in between them and the don’t walks seem to be people holding hands. It’s a very cute detail! I tried to capture it in a photo.

This is in front of the Vienna State Opera.

So we called Uber and made it back to the hotel for an early night. Ty and L went off to find the nearest playground. Papa relaxed in his room. R came back to my room where she did school work on the iPad and I wrote a blog post. Just nice to have some down time.

We fed the kids some leftovers and put them to bed about 8:30. Ty and I ended up staying up late trying to get laundry done. This big hotel only has one washer and dryer for their clients to use! Also european dryers are so slow and need like two hours to dry anything.
