Marilyn and Alf arrive in Vienna to thunder and lightening – what a welcome!

We’ve arrived in Vienna, Austria and just got settled before the heavens opened – thunder and lighting followed – what a reception!

The four-hour road journey from Prague was fairly uneventful. Leaving Prague, we saw lots of Communist era high rises which were pretty ugly – just like this sort of building anywhere.

The toll paying motorway from Prague to Brno was pretty bad in places – I regretted not changing my tyre pressures from German autobahn settings.

As we crossed the border from the Czech Republic into Austria the traffic was very slow through a number of small villages, eventually leading to the motorway. I stopped at the first services to buy my sticker for using the Austrian motorway and the young man said “welcome to Austria” which was pretty nice.

Driving around Vienna for the first time was a bit hairy and I was grateful that I had downloaded the latest patches for my SatNov.

Time to explore Vienna in the rain….
