A couple years back I had the opportunity to travel around Europe for three weeks.  On that trip I ventured to London, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Rome, and Florence.  But of all the places I went to, Vienna was the most beautiful of them all.  One word: Palatial.  There seemed to be palaces and gardens everywhere.  The whole city felt very regal and like I was transported back in time.  Here’s a taste of this magical place:

The graves of Beethoven, Schubert, and Mozart. Some call Vienna the “City of Music.”

I want to explore Europe much much more.  On this trip I got a real dose of culture and western history that I had only learned about in school.  I can’t wait to return to Vienna, and beyond.
