Have you ever been on vacation for the holidays? This was my first time, and although I missed my family, it was refreshing to get away from the stress of the commercialized American Christmas.
Christmas Eve we started off by visiting the Art History Museum. No words…this place was exquisite! They even had a café in the middle of the museum where we had a quick lunch and coffee date . We spent the majority of the day exploring this museum and spent the rest of the day wandering around. Eventually all of our walking led us to St. Stephens Cathedral.
Around 5pm we returned to the hotel and got all fancied up for our Christmas Eve dinner. The dinner was served in buffet style and we ordered a bottle of wine to celebrate the occasion. I wish I could have taken more pictures, but I didn’t want to be seen as the “rude American”. We gorged ourselves on dinners with a round of appetizers, main courses and dessert. The dinner as a whole took about 2 hours- very relaxing and my kind of meal.
