14 Sep, 2017 in Vienna

To wrap up my conference trip to Vienna, I’ll take you on a walking tour I did on the last two days around the Vienna canals, parks, and university area. The two days had very different weather, so you’ll be able to see rainy and cloudy Vienna and blue-skies Vienna.   Shall we?   Canals […]
