We are leaving for out trip to Ireland, the Netherlands and Belgium tomorrow and while – as usual – it is my intention to blog – this may not happen.
I will have only my iPad which – while being a wonderful little piece of equipment – is not particularly good at blogging. And I rather doubt that many places we go will have Internet access.
However – I will do my best.
Before I go I have to report about an astonishing event in Vienna this week.
Firstly there is Dinner in the Sky. This apparently involves eating dinner while you are 50 metres in the air at the end of a crane. This sounds like a very bad idea - but apparently there are enough punters prepared to part with money to make it work. Why would you do this?
This sounds almost as good as Dining in the Dark which is the worst idea I have ever heard – but is a roaring success – proving once again that I have no skills at determining what will or will not be popular. But – again – why would you do this?
The second thing is that we almost witnessed the Viennese event of the week when the Twin City Liner crashed into the banks of the Donau Canal.
We saw the aftermath of this near catastrophe as we cycled along the canal and had to thread our way through the swarms of fire engines and ambulances.
Extra police were need for crowd control as the Viennese flocked to see this amazing sight.
Not much happens here.
