We traveled to Vienna, Austria for a week in May 2011.  Kathy participated in the Euro FM conference, and I had lots of time to explore.  Below are some of the pictures around Vienna, and a side trip to Budapest.

Below:  During our stay in Vienna, I took a one day side trip to Budapest, Hungary.  Below is a picture of the bridge across the Danube River that connects the two former cities of Buda and Pest.  This bridge was an engineering marvel at the time of its completion in 1849, the wide span was needed because of all the ice floating down river duing the spring thaw.
