I'm sure Vienna is a wonderful city with many sights to see and things to do. However when you travel this long and this fast, you need to take a day or two and catch your breath and just lay low. For us Vienna was a good location to do this.
So, in Vienna we didnt really do many touristy things we decided it would a be a "working" couple days, for us to catch up on our blog, pictures, etc. We also found a little mascot, and we named him Manic the Monkey (...so, we're going a little crazy, nuts even, but at least we're keeping each other entertained right? at least that's what we tell ourselves...)
Manic hatched from a Kinder Egg, for those of you who dont know what that is, its basically an easter egg wrapped in chocolate and inside the egg lies a toy.
The following pictures illustrate the "hatching" process:
These are popular toys for kids, but as you can tell, even adults can be easily entertained with them.
He even has a theme song (to the tune of "Manic Monday")
Manic will be joining us on the rest of our trip and just might be featured in future blog postings.
