Yeah.. I HAVE been up in this thing. And it was MY DAD that insisted!! I have a pretty cool dad. It basically pulls you up about 20 metres or so (feel like a LOT more) and then releases you down to the twists and turns of the boomerang, before doing the same thing in reverse. I almost screamed my lungs out. Afterwards I felt really dizzy with whatever it is that the brain releases to make you cope with fear… wasn’t really that unpleasant. After. 🙂
This is one of the tourist attractions in Vienna that are a bit disappointing. The view is ok, but there are better views to be had, and to be honest there is not much infrastructure around it. I have been up there once just to check it out, so that’s how I know. For those who are adventurous, there is a bungee platform (you can see it to the right sticking out), and there are also some food options..
Just 50 minutes north of Vienna, you can find the medieval city Eggenburg, which is host to one of the biggest medieval fairs. The city itself is absolutely stunning, with much of the original town wall still intact. Well worth a visit even outside of fair-time.
Here you can see a skilled smith at work. 🙂 Shiiiiny armour….
Just a quick picture of a flamingo today, from Vienna Zoo. My annual pass is expired.. so as soon as I get back home, I’ll get a new one. Because I love the animals! I hope they’re all ok in the Zoo… but then, many of them would be worse off in their ‘natural habitat’ – that’s fast disappearing.
These cars are about mayhem. I really like them, but I’ve realised that I’ve slowly outgrown them, and now they hurt my knees considerably when I hit someone.. hmmm! In any case. 5 Euro for a spin around in these cars. 🙂
I’m still rocking around a hazy Malaysia, missing home a bit I must admit! But I passed 10000 views in the last few days, so that’s worth a mention! Thank you all for following me and liking my posts!! 🙂
I came up here for the first time ever just over a month ago, and was super surprised to find this old fortress. I honestly thought there was nothing up here! But the scenery is really nice, and this here thing too of course. If you’re ever up on kahlenberg check it out, it’s just a five minute walk. 🙂
