Wien

We had a wonderful day in Vienna. It was warm and sunny. We went to 2 or 3 museums, as a group or solo. I saw 2, the Albertina, and the Leopold. I saw some amazing art but want aloud to take any photos….. They want to sell postcards in the gift shop…. We met David and eventually ended up at Scrappy’s. I brought out a “chilled” Marty and we split him between us all including the bartender, Shanda. It was the culmination of a long shook up trip for Marty, but he was a trooper and still tasted great!!  I insisted that Bruno take the bottle of New Glarus Belgian Red home to share with his wife. He reciprocated by bringing out two bottles of local Barley Wine for us all to split. Ed, Jon, and I ended up late nite at 7 Stern brewery for food and pints. We are off to Praha in the morning to finish up and catch our flight back to the states.

Prost to all!!

Bike day 7/8

Well our last day on the bikes was a nice one. It was very warm and we rode 29 miles or so to Wien! The last 12 were on Donau Island which is in the middle of the river with the city on both sides. It is kind of bitter sweet, nice to be in Wien, but that also means the ride is over…. Peter’s friend David is to meet us this evening. He drove 3.5 hours from southern Austria to spend time with us and enjoy some pints! We will end up @ Scrappy’s, a local beer bar we found last trip. The owner Bruno was very kind to us and he and Ed have kept in touch via Facebook. I brought him some beer from Wisconsin!!
