Farewell to Vienna

We got an early start this morning to make up for missing the day on Saturday. We headed over to the Schönbrunn Palace for the Imperial tour. It is a beautiful palace. You can read about the history of the palace on the website. Maria thought it was cool to hear about people on the audio tour that we had studied in school. For example: JFK met with Kruschev at this palace and we had just read about them the past few weeks.

They were also having an Easter Market on the grounds so we walked through it and looked at all the neat stuff and bought a pastry to share.

Then back to the apartments to pick up our stuff and head to the airport. We arrived over 2 hours early. Steve had looked at the map of the airport online this morning and already knew which gate and everything. To quote him, "we aren't even going down the wrong hallway this time!"

We made our flight and it was a wonderfully short return trip to Bucharest. Flight time was 1 hour and 5 minutes. Sure beat the 24 hours to get there!
