Probably not much fun mooring a ship. At least these mirrors remind me of my last attempt at parking a transporter in a small parking lot in a busy street, with the added incentive of blocking a bus and a queue of nervously hooting cars. Speak of adrenaline 🙂
There’s not so much you can do while waiting for the ship to go on. There’s a reason why river cruises mostly travel by night 🙂
This used to be a storage building and has been a hotel for maybe 20 years now. It was a Scandic Crown and now it is a Hilton. No idea how it is. I’ve never stayed there. Have you ever taken a hotel in your own town? I didn’t but maybe one should. If I’d do so, however, there’d be more interesting alternatives in Vienna.
That’s as high as it gets in Vienna. It’s an office building and it will get a second and slightly lower tower on the other side of the street. That’s a big axis leading north, across the biggest bridge, and when it’s done, the two towers will form a giant gate.
Vienna has only a few highrise buildings, most on its periphery, some along the river. Most of them are solitary towers like this one.
Why not visit Bratislava, Slovakia’s small but booming capital? Once there was a tramway line between the two cities, today you can make the trip by car in less than an hour, by train in similar time, but of course with both cities on the same river, a ship is a viable option.
That’s what I did and that’s what we’ll spend the next weeks with. Welcome aboard 😀
There are a few river ports in Vienna. This is the most western one in Nussdorf. The shore is narrow here, so everything’s a bit crowded 🙂
Graffiti have a certain quality of randomness and unrelatedness, or if they are related to something, it is at least not obvious to what. A “Zocker” is kind of a gamer, but can also be someone playing card games in a casino. This may relate to YouTube somehow, but … whatever 🙂
No problem, your needs can be catered to 🙂
Reminds me of a scene in Yellow Submarine: the attack of the Blue Meanies 🙂
