Well... today was a bit of a blah day! Due to a couple of unfortunate events we ended up missing our train and had to buy new tickets. We boarded the RJ 77 Antonín Dvořák train and I began to feel a bit pants! We had managed to book an activity, which i will tell you about in tomorrow's entry, for 6pm and were still hoping to make it even with the lateness of the train. If everything went well we could be there on time.
We arrived into Vienna at around 5:09pm and requested an Uber and waited and waited and realized that Uber's GPS had us in a different location. We re-requested an Uber which turned up and took us to our apartment. We were a little late arriving there and to our surprise found no one there waiting to meet us. With my battery at 3% and Louise's phone dead, coupled with no internet we waited for some time and eventually I went in search of free WiFi to try and email the lady who was meant to meet us. Having no luck we went for a wander in search of food and drink and I was feeling more and more pants by the minute. After about 30 minutes of walking we fell across a diner so we sat down and ordered some drinks and food whilst using their free WiFi. I finally, with 1%battery left, managed to WhatsApp her and she agreed to meet us at 7:45 at the apartment. We finished up our dinner at what turned out to be a odd eatery run by odd people. Everything on the menu seemed to be offal-type food and it was served by a waitress who was mutton dressed as lamb. We were provided sauce sachets which we later found out were not included in the meal price and had to be paid for.
We then headed back to our apartment and thankfully, this time the lady met us there and took us through the apartment. I carried the suitcases up the stairs to the 3rd floor. With both of us not feeling too flash, me running a temperature and also being too late for our tour we flicked on the TV for a bit only to have every channel speaking in German. I know that's what you'd expect in a German-speaking country but still. We retired early in the hope that the sleep would fix any issues we were experiencing.
