Back again in this lovely country. I just realised this road trip was mostly around Austria. While we were at it, my friends and I didn't forget to try their traditional food which are schnitzels, sacher torte--tried it in Hotel Sacher where it was one of the two places the sacher cake first served, and bratwurst hotdog (this was actually originated from Germany, but they're like siblings so the Austrians also sell a lot of bratwurst hot dogs!) Anyway, Schloss Schönbrunn was beautiful, one of the most beautiful palaces I've ever been to. I still think Versailles in France is the best so far. Oh, and we also watched the opera in Vienna State Opera! People do dress up to go to this kind of thing and it felt so cool, although my seat was not perfect. I don't mind going to one of these shows again. I don't remember what show I watched, which I feel is ridiculous because I can't seem to remember anything at this moment, but it was pretty cool. We only got a day in Vienna so didn't do much except visiting the very touristy sites and just sight-seeing.
People favour this city so much, they'd say it's the most beautiful city they've ever been to. I have my reasons for not putting it on my Top 5. However, there are some attraction points which elegance I agree with such as the New York Cafe--crowned as the most beautiful cafe by The New York Times--and also St. Matthias Church on Castle Hill.
P.S. I felt so embarrassed to mention the wrong city on my previous post (AND I put it as a title)--which I've edited directly. Usually my memory of a city is not bad, but that's what I got when I've delayed posts for two years! But I did go to both cities--Melk and Metz, one is in Austria and one is in France respectively--and they're so tricky because their names started with the same two letters! I apologise.
I never thought I would go to a city that I didn't even know exist! But that's the fun part of road trip! You'll never know what you can stumble upon. To be fair, my friends and I did plan to go to this city (but I didn't know there is a city in Austria called Melk before we planned the route from cities to cities and Melk, well, happened to be in the middle of Salzburg and Budapest). Honestly, I wouldn't mind not coming back here. However, since that day the sun was shining so beautifully over the small town, it made that particular day memorable, even until now. Yes, it matters a lot whether or not a sun decides to decorate a town for me.
