Nice, Milan, Interlaken and St Johann

Wow what a big week it has been.

Almost missed the train to Nice the morning of my last post. Literally I was the last person on the train. Elaina was already on the train and wondering if I was going to make it. I would have been fine if the damn metro didnt fail the stop before I needed. Had to run with all my gear on. I dont want to go through that again.

Anyway we eventually made it to Nice. Great Hostel! We stayed two nights. Did a day trip to Monacco. Walked around and took some pictures. Walked the whole F1 track and took photos of all the corners and generally the whole track :) Was a nice little highlight for me.

After Nice we took a train to Milan, Italy. Spent the night there. Did see the Duomo but otherwise didn`t get up to much else.

The next day, 17th, we got to Switzerland - Interlaken. Spent Two nights there aswell. Day tripped to Bern and Zurich. The hostel there was interesting to say the least. The rooms were set up in an old barn... so we were quite literally sleeping in the old horse stalls. The place is a party hostel though where you are meant to do things like paragliding and canyoning during the day and party all night. If only I had the money I guess.

Arrived in Austria the day before yesterday, the 19th, had a day off walking around St Johann in Tirol. St. Johann is a small town pretty much in the middle of no where. Skiing town during the winter and cheap acommodation during the summer.

The first night we were there the town was having a bit of a festival in the main square. It seemed to be mainly for little kids with kiddy rides set up but they also had live music. We got to hear an Austrian 3 Piece, complete with accordian, play a whole bunch of, what seemed to be, traditional Austrian music.

Today we are in Liechtenstein and found free internet. Which we are currently abusing :) ... ah well no one else was using it or looks to be wanting to. Now back to St. Johann in Tirol and tomorrow is off to Vienna. One night in Vienna then off to Venice. Hopefully find some cheap internet inbetween somewhere.
*Free internet here in Vienna. Hence adding to this post with more info*
