The 5th day, started really nice, the weather was hot and the day sunny, so we finally decided to visit the Schönbrunn Palace, to walk through its gardens and maybe visit the zoo too. So, we took the subway again, and headed there.
There were a lot of people there, and we decided to start from its gardens (in case the weather changes again, to be able to at least see these ones), as we were unlucky with the Belvedere gardens the other day. We took lots of pictures, as we walked through them, and took advantage of its trees’ shades.
Really weird weather those days! It felt like in those 5+ days we were in Vienna, the seasons kept changing constantly. All 4 seasons in 5 days! At first, when we arrived, it was Fall. Followed by a light winter, with lots of rain and wind, making us beg for winter coats and gloves. Then, the spring came, with lots of sun, but also breezy, and at last the summer came, with high temperatures and lots of sun. Crazy weather!
I was wearing: Top (gift for my birthday-also seen here) unknown brand, Jeans: Tommy Hilfiger, shoes: Asics Onitsuka Tiger, sunglasses: Donna Karan (yeah I know, you’re sick of them), earrings: Guess, watch: Esprit, bracelet: Follie Follie, bag: Penny Black. On my nails: Erre Due Exclusive No. 40, coral (seen here).
T. was wearing: Hat and jeans: H&M, shirt: Zara, shoes: Puma.
We spent a long time sitting on benches, because I was really tired from all the walking of this trip, and I needed to rest. And it was also too hot, to walk all the time.
On one of our bench stops we tried to take some pictures of us, together in the same pic. Yes, this one was the best, and coincidentally the only one in which we were making those silly faces. But, oh well!
Moving on! One more pic of me under some beautiful trees. I am in love with the colors of this pic!
After lots of walking thought the palace’s gardens we found the route to the zoo.
After thinking for a while whether to enter or not, we decided in favor of it.
I won’t bore you more, with pics of the animals, cause there were lots of them. But as you know, I will bore you with some food ones instead. Didn’t really believe that I was THAT much of a food lover (as I told you on a previous post), ha? Gotcha!
As we hadn’t eaten a proper breakfast before leaving our home, we decided to stop for a coffee and some breakfast as soon as we got in the zoo. T. is too clever to ignore my cries for food, when I’m really hungry, cause he knows the consequences. Do I really have to send you to this post again, to see what I’m talking about? (Hint, see no. 2).
We shared two kinds of breakfasts, a French toast, and a sausage dish.
I also got an Eiscafe, which was simply delicious, even with the unsweetened whipped cream on top.
We proceeded to see the animals at the zoo, and we took many more pictures.
The only one I’ll show you though, is the one of a cute little squirrel who was eating and running free among us.
I got to see many animals, including some giant pandas, which were really cute too, while they were eating their bamboos.
One more photo of me, on a beautiful little bridge near the pelicans.
As a true tourist, I was holding the zoo’s flyer and my camera on the other hand.
We left the zoo, somewhere after 5p.m. to go to the city center to buy souvenirs for our families and friends.
Everything resembling a souvenir was extremely expensive, with fridge magnets starting at 5 euros! Tourist traps!
I visited a Lush Cosmetics store to buy something for my mother, and took some photos of their shopping windows, as the photos from inside the store were forbidden.
After that, we decided to finally enter Stephansdom, the main church, to see it from the inside too. It was amazing, even though we were in such hurry.
Later, we took our shopping bags home, and we met at our “point zero”, the Opera, which was our meeting point with our friend S. during our stay there. I couldn’t leave this one out of my post.
Our program continued with yet another night at Museums Quartier to meet another friend of ours, followed by a looooong walk home, cause we missed the last tram/subway train back home.
My feet were killing me, and I was ready to give up and sleep right there on the bus stop, when my boyfriend saved the night, and offered to carry me on his back for a few minutes, until we were closer to the apartment. How sweet of him!
When we got home we had to pack our suitcases, as we were leaving really early in the morning. That resulted in only 3 hours of sleep before we got up again to catch the train to the airport.
On the flight we were given fluffy muffins for breakfast. I couldn’t be more happy and hungry!
And these clouds marked the end of our journey, as we were ready for landing.
A really hot day was awaiting us in our home town, Thessaloniki!
I hope that this isn’t the last time I got to see Vienna or Austria in general. I already miss it.
Thank you for reading the last part of my 3 (huge and picture-loaded) posts, hope you enjoyed it too. I wanted to share the whole experience with you, as if you were there with us.
