Summer 2010

Summer 2010 was spent in Vienna, Austria, and Budapest, Hungary. It was so much fun! I've included a list of places and a Google map showing the positions of each, and some links to albums with pictures. 

- Schonbrunn Palace
- Hofburg Palace
- Rathaus
- Mozarthaus (two of them, they play concerts)
- Plenty of beer gardens, e.g. Salm brau, 
- Great restaurants - e.g. Palais Coburg, Figlmuller, Plachutta
- Hotel Sacher, where Vivaldi stayed, and home of the famous Sacher Torte
- Demel, amazing pastries and amuse bouches, and a very good Sacher Torte too (they were sued by Hotel Sacher over the origin of the recipe)
