Train to Vienna
Yesterday we left our lovely hotel in Prague and took a train to Vienna. We had a private compartment, and the views were amazing. We passed frozen rivers, little villages with smoke rising out of tiny cottage chimneys, and big community gardens. We saw lots of deer in the snowy fields, swans and pheasants, and even a wolf, running through the woods on a snowy hillside. Amazing! My favorite sight was all the mistletoe in the trees. When the sunlight hits it, it looks golden. Very beautiful. Now we are in another wonderful hotel, and are about to spend the day exploring Vienna.
