Vienna: Day 3

10 May 2017 So fun fact: I had to bring work with me during my Journey to 30 holiday because my PhD supervisor scheduled a Skype sesh for this morning. However, after a really productive meeting, I headed straight to Schönbrunn Palace! I purchased my ticket online so I just had to scan the barcode

Vienna: Day 2

Christmas in Paris

Lots of Metro riding, lots of walking, but it was to compensate for the lots of eating that occurred during this trip. I, and three other friends first stopped in Paris. We booked our trip via the
