I was pretty excited to see that I had a three hour layover in Vienna, Austria on my way back to the United States this week. I have always been a really big fan of their world famous little sausages.
I was hoping to see some kangaroos while flying in and hopefully be welcomed to the airport by some rugged looking character saying, “G’day mate! Let’s throw another shrimp on the barbie”… but much to my disappointment none of this happened. I suspect you probably must travel miles and miles into bush country in a Land Rover to see the traditional Austria we have all grown to know and love.
Vienna was also the last place we actually had any luggage because none of it made it back home with us. I suspect our bags were snatched by the Austrian Aborigines who no doubt wanted our western clothing… (although I really think my sweaters will be too hot for them to wear in the outback).
