a trip to vienna (0 comments)
a company excursion to vienna was set down for monday to tuesday, so i already went earlier to the capital to spend some more time there than just two days. on saturday ninsti (once again) and i went to the central cemetery[001-133] to take some pictures there. the weather was perfect for shooting, the light was superb.
we especially enjoyed the jewish section of the cemetery. the decayed and overgrown stones and tombs, the autumn leaves. it was so beautiful.
we also paid a visit to the "celebrity" section of the graveyard, full of impressive memorials and statues. most famous ones are mozart, schubert, brahms, beethoven, raab, boltzmann, hans moser, curd juergens, kreisky, ... and hundreds of others.
sunday i got a self made birthday cake[134-135] from ninsti. ooh, it has kitty! totally delicious. nomnom. we also went to the museum of modern art vienna ("mumok"), to see the "hyper real" exhibition. quite impressive artwork to see there. on monday i did some teleworking for the company. in the late afternoon i met with my coworkers at the hotel. we checked in, then went to cabaret "simpl" to see "nach der krise". i was surprised they had a lot of singing in this revue. still, it was quite good and we had a good laugh. afterwards we went out. some of us - including me - got to bed around five o'clock in the morning. puh... tuesday morning after breakfast, we split up. some were going shopping, some just strolling around, and some - as in: my boss and me - went to the spanish riding school[136-139] in vienna, to see the morning exercises. horses were ridden to waltz music. they even had one (and only one) female rider there. quite unusual it seemed to me. later we went to a ramen restaurant, had dinner there. afterwards we had an awesome segway tour through vienna. this fun cruise lasted for over three hours. at first we got instructions on how to safely travel by segway, then we had to make a choice of either having a touristy tour through vienna, or a tour that focuses more on riding, cruising, and having fun. well, we all agreed on chosing the latter. so at first we drove to the danube canal. came by the prater, the hundertwasser house, karlsplatz, and finally headed towards schwarzenbergplatz and then back to the starting point. it already got dark when we got back to there. right at the end we took a tram to get to the railway station to get back to linz. what an awesome weekend...
