I think it’s really weird when I do a Google search for information and find something I posted to a message board years ago. Below, something I posted to snopes.com’s message boards during my sophomore year of undergrad:
I was there for the whole month of July, so saw quite a bit – I had an arts class that had a field trip a day. Scoured the city for Wagner architecture and Klimt paintings (the Belvedere was super), Historiches Museum Der Stadt Wien, Secession, Karlkirche, the whole Ring, Stephansdom, tried out the flomarkt (not impressed, sadly), did the “summer night films” at the Rathaus thing several times, saw “Don Quixote” at Theater an der Wien, “The Barber of Seville” at the Schonbrunn, ate entirely too much eis at that stand on the Ring at the Swedenplatz U-Bahn stop, and spent many a night at the Chestnut Tree (Zun Narrischen Kastanienbaum) on Strozzigasse, my favorite restaurant on this entire planet.
I would really love to go back to Vienna someday, and sit under the chestnut trees in the back again and have wiener schnitzel and garlic cream soup, then stroll through the city just soaking it up. Can soaking up cities be a full-time past-time?
