In Mozartland

I arrived in Vienna last Sunday without any major incident. Our last trip in May by car towards Denmark ended abruptly when the cooler of my car burst and it had to be towed. So I was extra cautious this time during the 700km long journey to Vienna from Berlin. We had a 2 hour stop-over in Prague for lunch.

The weather was good and temperature is on the higher side. 25-30 does not sound much to me but with piercing sunlight this means struggle for many Europeans especially in Czech Republic and in Austria. When this hotel was booked they promised that there will be internet connection via LAN in every room. I found that the connection in our room was not working. I guess they have never took the complain seriously and indicated that there is something wrong with my laptop. I had to prove to them using a connection from another room that they were wrong. The issue still remains unresolved and guess the only option is to move to another room (subject to availability).

Here are some pictures:
