Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of having Mooch, my daughter's sock toy,accompany me on a business trip to Rome. (You can read about how this all came about, here.)
Well after that trip, Mooch developed wanderlust - it was nigh impossible to keep him from accompanying me from my next trip to Europe. This time it was Vienna
Despite the fact that we were a bit jet-lagged, we decided it was better to stay awake on the first day than take a nap. So we decided to visit one of Vienna's most famous tourist destinations, the Summer Palace, Schloss Schonbrunn. It once was the home of Marie Antoinette:
We also climbed (...OK...took the elevator) to the top of St Stephen's Cathedral to see a great view of the city of Vienna:
Vienna boasts an old clock that rivals the finest in Germany. The clock shows the time by historical figures that move across the clock face. Every hour a different historical figure passes by. Mooch was thoroughly impressed:
While touring one of Vienna's museums, Mooch had a harrowing adventure:
He narrowly managed to get out of his predicament and was a bit upset, as one would expect. A relaxing evening helped and, don't worry, he's none the worse for wear.
Despite his one scary experience, Mooch had a great time and is looking forward to his next great adventure.
