Here are Sue and Mary Beth at the airport before we board our plane to Los Angeles.
Our last dinner together was at a below street level "cave" like restaurant. Everyone was getting their last photos of their travel friends.
I can never get enough of amusement parks and Vienna boasts one of the oldest .
The Ferris wheel was built in 1896-7.
A" must see" for me was the Leopold Museum. I almost never got out of there. It is located in the Museums Quartier. This is the view from the second floor of the museum.
The Leopold Museum was opened in 2001 and houses the most comprehensive collection of 19th and 20th Century Austrian Art.
