"Luck plays a part" Stephansdom - St. Stephen's Cathedral Tip by Sharrie

  Gothic, gothic...
by Sharrie

Vienna is probably the most refined & classical city in Western Europe after Paris.
It's a city of music, a city of arts & a city of architecture.

This was my 2nd visit to Vienna after a lapse of more than 5 years. This time, I've a friend from VT living in this city. Someone whom I've enjoyed "chatting" over yahoo messenger & someone whom I was very eager to meet.

I told another VTer of my plan for a short getaway (4 days to be precise, same with the 1st visit) & she wanted to come along. So, off we went.

I was extremely lucky. :-)
I haven't been keeping in touch with Oliver (Socrates_07) recently & when told of our plan to visit his beautiful city, he came back with the most surprising news!
He was not working on those 4 days we were going to be in town!!!
Wow, that's great news for us!

On our arrival, Oliver was already waiting for us at the airport! As I said, I was extremely lucky. He was happy to pick us up from the airport!

After a brief stop at our hotel, Audrey was eager to explore the city. It's her 1st time.
So, off we went to the most obvious landmark for anyone who came to visit the city for the 1st time - St. Stephens Cathedral.
