Bratislava & Vienna

Our first stop on the cruise was the quaint little city Bratislava, Slovakia. We spent the morning walking around and seeing yummy things like this...
Ice cream makes me so happy, and it was everywhere. Coffee ice cream in a waffle cone, please. ; )
This was my dessert one night after dinner, and it was too wonderful not to take a picture of it. 
Bratislava had several unique statues. This is Cumil (The Watcher). You can rub his head for good luck.
That afternoon on the way to Vienna we took a tour of the captain's deck.

Our next run was one of my most favorite things of the entire trip. We met with a local running club Hash House Harriers. They were so funny!
This man is explaining to us signs that the "hare" will leave on the trail for us to follow. Some signs pointed to the right way and others the wrong way so we had to work together to finish.
Before I knew it we were running in the hills of Vienna through beautiful vineyards. I had to remind myself to take it all in.

We were the first four finishers. Definitely a day I will never forget!

The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime...

Psalm 42:8

Gorgeous. I didn't know such a group existed. We lived south of Vienna for 3 months and we would take runs in the vineyards. We were there in the fall. The grapes were gorgeous and apparently you are allowed to have what you can eat while out there. So it was yummy to take a little after-run snack.
