Safe Arrival In Vienna

We flew from Houston to Washington DC where we caught our connecting flight to Vienna. The flight from Houston was delayed by half an hour due to the weather (thank you very much Tropical Storm Hermine). Still, we made it to Dulles with plenty of time.

The flight from Washington to Vienna was 9 hours. We cleared customs and found our way to the Hotel without much problem.

We arrived too early to check in so we stowed our bags with the hotel and took a walk. Unfortunately, it is raining today so that put a slight damper on our already exhausted mood.

We walked for a bit to get our bearings and then headed back to the hotel to see if we could check in yet and we got lucky. The previous tenant was gone and the chambermaid was prepping the room. Before long we were settled in, had some showers and laid down for a 2 hour nap.

After the nap we headed back out and looked around some more. I found the 3 Mobile store and bought a pre-paid 3G sim card for my new Samsung Vibrant and now have relatively inexpensive phone service and data connectivity while I am here. I’ll be playing with Twitter and streaming video while we move about.

The data speeds are VERY good. 1.6 megabits download and 1.2 upload.

We’re off to do some more exploring in an effort to stay up past 8pm so we can defeat the jet lag. If we stay up till then we’ll wake up early tomorrow and should be right as rain.

  1. Cute hat, Cynthia! Looks like it might be chilly there? Or was it just the inclement weather? Thanks for the update :-)
