I came to Austria because it was the way to get to Prague. Only after I had arrived in Vienna on New Year’s Eve and lost my way to the festivities of the city, passing the night at a stranger’s party, did I remember that not only did I have friends in the country, but really good friends. How could I have forgotten such wonderful people? So on my last day in the country I make a mad dash out to catch up with the mum of one of my best friends, and also am reminded of a lost chance to head to the Austrian Alps for skiing (in the middle of winter) with another friend. Such are the results of trying to plan too much in too little time. As it was I really enjoyed catching up with these people and have a great memory of my time in this amazing country.
