Despite my recent trips to Austria, this was my first glimpse of the country’s capital and the seventh stop on my Iron Route project.
I arrived in style, travelling from the aged grandeur of Keleti Pu station in Budapest to the ultra-modern Vienna West Bahnhof in a first class carriage with a waitress-led drinks service. After the cities I had been travelling through, the razzle and dazzle of the bright lights, tinsel and golden baubles of Vienna West provided a little jolt of culture shock.
On the other hand, I was on more familiar ground. However appalling my German may be, it remains much better than my Hungarian or Bulgarian.
But enough chat for now. The articles about Vienna are on their way. For now, it’s time to just sit back and enjoy the photos.
