Vienna by Segway....

This was soooo much fun and definitely the best way to get around Vienna!

I think everyone who went on this tour had an amazing time, we had a guide called Charles who showed us the sights of Vienna during this 3 hour journey of fun, adventure, laughter and sadly nearly tears after a couple of crashes!  I have to say I found it really hard to stop smiling for the rest of the day.  

  The temperature was above 30 degrees and we whizzed around the streets of Vienna, on cycle lanes and across main roads and tram lines which was a bit daunting as there was a convoy of 13 of us and we were all trying to keep up!

One of the places we stopped was at the Ferris Wheel, the oldest in Europe!

 We arrived back at the hotel around 5.15pm, some of us a little battered and bruised, with just enough time to get ready for the evening that lay ahead of us.  Here I am with Hayley and Amanda, just before heading outside to find a Horse and Carriage waiting to take us to the venue.

When we entered the musem we were offered canapes and cocktails whilst we took in the breathtaking surroundings, listening to a trio of musicians while we chatted.

Here are the UK girls with Paula, our Country Manager

and this was what greeted us at the top of these stairs!

The most beautiful setting ever to sit and have dinner, whilst listening to The Vienna Boys Choir which I found very emotional.  Shelli and Sterling sat at our table and we had a very enjoyable meal sharing stories and enjoying the good food.

On our place settings were hand finished Menu's and a signed copy of the Vienna Boys Choir album, how special the evening was.

I love this picture of Jules, doesn't she look stunning..

After dinner we had a private tour of the Fine Arts Gallery then headed back to the hotel where we sat and chatted in the lobby.

Once again, pillow gifts were waiting in the room but I will share these later.

What an amazing day!
