When I woke up, my legs were half dead and my head hurt so much I could have slept for a month. At we were guided to the dining room for breakfast. I was walking around the ship when I found a massive on-board library, so for the next hour I was sitting in the library reading a book called "Sharing Sam" . We spent the day having free time on the ship. I met 2 new people, all from different parts of the world. Luckily, all of us could speak perfect English so I didn't have to struggle explaining everything. Abbie, the first person I met was from Malaysia and had already been to Europe so I would probably just follow her everywhere I go because she knows how things work in Europe. The second person I met was Josh and he came from Korea. I was really surprised he could speak English so well since he told me nobody spoke English where he came from. We stuck together for the rest of the day until one of the staff told us that we will be seeing the first attraction site in half an hour.
in the amazing Vienna and walked through the streets all the way to the Palaise Liechtenstein. We even got a private Viennese concert . Unfortunately, the orchestral performance was only classical music like Mozart and Strauss so I took 2 hours trying not to fall asleep.
After the concert, we were separated into groups of 3 and were allowed to go to any food place. Abbie, Josh and I went to a restaurant called 'Walter Bauer' a delicious French restaurant . As soon as I stepped into the room, a wave of different unfamiliar smells washed over me. Smells of flour, garlic bread and spaghetti filled the room. Since coming to Europe, I noticed even though the food tasted amazing the presentation was stunning and was a little work of art on a plate. In Vienna, they served meals in small portions and make it very light.
We came back to the ship at 10:30pm and went straight to sleep. Tomorrow we will be going to Dürnstein in Melk.
