The second day in Slovenia was only marred by the amount of time we had there. We again woke early as planned to get the bus to Lake Bled as we'd heard so many good things about it, and it definitely didn't disappoint. The lake itself was stunning enough, but with the tiny island with the church in the middle, the overlooking cliff with castle perched on top and the rowing boats idling across, it all made for a beautiful place. After a small stroll we then hired a boat!! And rowed across to the island, around it and back, and it was gorgeous! We ate (with €25 we found whilst strolling) and the swam and dived a lot; brilliant!
We then caught our train to Vienna; not a long journey and with beer and trivial pursuit we were soon in Austria's capital. Finding our way to the hostel was interesting, but we managed. And what a hostel it was! Rather big, gelt like a hotel, but a cool, modern, aimed-at-the-rich-twentysomethings hotel. Friendly and with bar and free wifi.
We were far too cream bracketed to do anything on the first night, but got up leisurely on the first morning and had a very authentic Austrian breakfast at the world famous Naschmarkt. Then on to the already mentioned Segway experience. That was clearly a massive highlight, got to see loads and tit around for a long time, but we kind of peaked to soon as the rest of the day was quite slow. After a chill, a few beers, and a cheap set menu meal, we had a massive last night out with three travellers from Montreal and a English art dealer from Paris. In brief, we got drunk, pretty drunk, and we're still feeling it.
Nothing much to mention of today, and we're currently sat in the departure lounge waiting to board - don't know why you needed that level of info.
Thank you for following, it's been a laugh writing this and, if anything, will help us remember what transpired over the past 2 weeks!
