Austria: In Pictures

Guttentag! If you ever wanted to live in a world where meat and potatoes is not only typical, but encouraged at every meal (vegetarians need not apply, literally you would starve there) and you didn’t need an excuse to sample the house brew before noon, then we have found the place for you! Welcome to the land of the Hapsburgs, Sigmund Freud, Mozart, and more!

Schronnbrun PalaceGardens at the Schronnbrun PalaceSpanish Riding School - Chandaliers and dirt floors, that's how they roll! The prized stallions
Dinner at Imperial HotelA picture with the man, the myth, the legend - MozartThe Vienna Opera House at night - the view from our hotel room!A cruise on the blue DanubeStephandom (St. Stephen's Church), the locals call it Stefl or "little Stevie"Horsing around in the country side - it's so "Sound of Music"!

A traditonal pork and sauerkraut dinner, and that's wine, not beer, in our mugs!Can you hear me now? I wonder if Mozart's in my Verizon network?

Cafe where Freud used to hang out. We stopped to have a coffee and then I realized I'm in love with my mother.

With so much blood in his veins from nearby Munich and Stuttgart, Matt looks very much at home.
