Vienna

This past holiday weekend our program headed to Vienna for a final group trip before we say goodbye to Germany and its convenient proximity to weekend destinations in about 2 months!

I'm not sure whether it was the seemingly constant downpour of rain while we were there or if I've just gotten a little out my picture-taking groove since the new semester has started up, but my camera seemed to stay in my backpack for the majority of this trip. It did, however, make it out for our trip to the MuMok, Vienna's museum of modern art.
I haven't always been a huge fan of modern art, but some of the classic Pop Art really floats my boat. The bright colors and clean lines really spark my interest and I love how they look against an all white wall.
Of course it was fun to see some of Andy Warhol's most famous pieces.
My camera got to see the light of day one more time before we headed back to Munich when we stopped at the Sch├Ânbrunn Palace, the Hapsburg's summer home, on our way out of the city, . It was the first time we saw even a glimpse of the sun in four days.

I've seen so much Baroque-era architecture this past year, I have to say that I've lost a little bit of interest in it. But I did love the massive green hedges, it was incredible how well groomed everything was! I especially love the look of a crisp white statue against the dark green.
Back to Munich for a week or so and then off to Zurich with my lovely parents for my birthday weekend! Now I just have to find the time to make it to Amsterdam, Edinburgh, London again, the 100 other places I want to go.....when there's a will, there's a way?
