Day 453: …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead

Day 452: Day of the Dead

Vienna, Austria It’s Halloween. I didn’t have anything in mind to celebrate. Was just going to hop on a bus and move on to Bratislava and see what’s up there. Xin had said I could join him to his friend’s Halloween party. I thought it’d […]

Dan Flavin's work

Day 451: Vermehrt Schönes

Vienna, Austria Vienna was too cold and windy to spend time outdoor. Seemed like another museum day for me. I went to check out MUMOK. I don’t quite know what to make of the exhibition by Dan Flavin. Like many modern art, it’s weird, cold […]

This is contemporary

Day 450: Vienna, Round 2

Vienna, Austria I had visited Vienna last year. Wasn’t planning for another visit at all. The reason I was back was due to the fact that there’s no direct bus ride from Macedonia to Slovakia. There were a couple museums that I had wanted to […]

Day 93: About the Buses that BusAbout

Day 92: Caffeinated Consciousness

Vienna, Austria The sun was scorching today when I visited the Schobrunn Palace in the suburbs of Vienna. Too cheap to pay for the U-bahn ticket, I walked nearly an hour to reach there. And too cheap also to pay for the entrance ticket to […]

Day 91: Rest Now, Weary Head!

Vienna, Austria Today I did something that I would not have imagined myself doing. But I suppose it’s time for me to try something new. After doing the touristy routine of going to the Belvedere Palace and museum to see some Gustav Klimt’s and Egon […]

Day 90: Wolfgang Amadeus

Zagreb, Croatia – Vienna, Austria On the move again! Early morning train to Vienna, Austria. Arrived late in the afternoon and met two fellow Americans, Amelia and Taylor, with whom I shared the same room at Wombat Hostel. This hostel is by far the cleanest, […]

Day 72: Second Time Is The Charm
