Lokes are on a European cruise. L was sick from food on plane but is feeling better. “We arrived here on Thursday am, ill with food poisoning from plane until Saturday so missed out on our plans. Joined cruise yesterday, weak but better. Still not ourselves today but much better. Eating & finally enjoying some wine or a cocktail. Cruising Danube now on way to Vienna so a good restful day. Weather is quite cold so did not pack the right things. Also dress is very very casual here. I wore a plain type dress. Last night & felt over dressed !!! So far all Canadians & Americans. 180 people on ship, food is good, staff is wonderful.”
Feeling much better, strength almost back. Arrived in Vienna this am. Sun is finally shining. We have been to Vienna a couple of times & seen all the sights so we walked to the Prater which is a huge amusement park & of no interest to us except there is a big Ferris wheel built in 1897, damaged in WWll & then restored. We have always wanted to see it & ride on it. Then found the nicest cleanest restaurant we have ever seen. Did not expect to find such a place at the Prater. It cost about $12 cdn just to sit down but so worth it. Delicious food sat on patio with Mozart & Strauss music playing. Keith was in heaven. Having a martini on ship, so good to enjoy life again. Tonight we have tickets to an opera , Strauss & Mozart. Today is Shauna’s bday & 3 years since mom passed. Will send pics. The Wiener schnitzel is big enough for 3 so we left a lot of food. Big dish of dumplings with parsley &butter Yummy.
