This is not about the television show...
I actually got lost today in Vienna. I went for a walk today past a nice canal and continued walking straight down this street for quite some time until it came to a dead end. Obviously the only choice was to turn either left of right. Well being that right sounds like the "right" way to go I turned right and made my way to the next street over. That street was actually lovely, with a nice walkway of trees. But as I continued walking I started feeling a little uneasy as I never did meet back up with the canal. Honestly the canal runs horizontally and I'm walking on vertical streets that must in some way run into the canal. But I never did find it. Me being a nervous nelly that I am.... went into full fledged panic mode. I turned on one street and then another and then another not knowing where the heck I was.... wandering around aimlessly. I was on the verge of crying and I was about to lose it. That's when I just decided to retrace my steps, find the street that came to a dead end and take it back to the canal. AWESOME. Then it starts sprinkling!
That was the fun part....
Which streets did I turn on and where did I turn was my concern. So I used my photographic memory and prayed to God that I made it back to the canal and sure enough a little over an hour later I made it back. What a morning! I didn't have my cell with me because our international calling plan is ridiculous and costs way too much, so there was no point in bringing it. What would I have done if I were really and truly lost. Try my best at speaking German or pray someone knew a little English to get me back to the canal.... I wish I would have had an overhead camera so I could have seen what I looked like trying to find my way.... I must have walked in like two complete circles or two ginormous U's.
Note to self and others: Carry a map with you at all times if you plan on taking walks in an unfamiliar city.
Here are a couple of shots I took this morning.
More pics to come soon......
If I can build up the courage to get out and about again tomorrow ;)
