The Green of Vienna
‘Oh, Vienna‘ … sang Ultravox a few decades ago (video below – you’re welcome), which has resulted in me only being able to say Vienna with an ‘oh’ in front of it – and not just saying it, but singing it. Damn those catchy eighties tunes.
Anyway, I took an unplanned day trip to Vienna, Austria from Bratislava, Slovakia. The weather in the latter not being so great, I booked a ticket and boated on up the Danube. I love boats, a lot. Luckily, the weather wasn’t as miserable several miles up river.
I ran round Vienna like a headless chicken (though still able to see where I was going), without a map or a guidebook. But I managed to take in some sights, appreciate the architecture and have a few expensive beers together with my expensive lunch.
Yeah, I’d go back again if I had more time on my hands and under my feet.
Who is Ultravox and what did they sing you might be asking yourselves. I don’t want to disappoint you, so here is the video. Smiley face.
Now you try saying Vienna without putting an ‘Oh’ in front of it.
