Well friends... the time has come for my European adventure to come to a close. It has been a wonderful 6 weeks, but all good things must come to an end. Tomorrow morning I catch a flight back to Paris where it all began before flying home to Atlanta.
I haven't had a chance to blog since Salzburg, so I have included 2 cities in this post. Vienna was good to me. I went to the Opera 2 nights in a row and it was magic. I read The Great Gatsby in it's entirety one sunny afternoon with a bottle of wine, Chinese noodles, and beautiful buildings all around me. Witnessed a magnificent performance at the Spanish Horse Riding school and sampled Sacher Cake (a chocolate torte with apricot jam) at Cafe Mozart. All in all I loved every minute of my time there. Especially since I found a book store that sells books in English! I didn't pack any books because I thought they weigh too much... but I have missed them so.
The train ride to Prague was long but well spent, as I read Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. When I arrived I was blown away by the beauty of this place. The buildings, the castles, the churches... all of it breathtaking. I spent the next three days walking until my feet couldn't walk anymore and eating all the delicious street food I could stomach. I love Prague. It is tied with Florence as my favorite city of the trip. I hope you will all one day get to experience it as I have this week.
I was giddy with joy when I saw this fresh juice bar! Ahh! Heaven!
While in Vienna, the 2013 Life Ball was there. Sadly I couldn't afford the tickets, but I hear it is an amazing event for the Aids Foundation. Bill Clinton was there apparently.
Sigmund Freud's house.

Sacher Cake... it was pretty tasty.
You aren't allowed to take pictures at the Opera, but I did anyway.

They were singing Georgia On My Mind
The Czech love their sausages.
