Ever since we got to Austria, Nina has wanted to see where Nick and I got married. Every time we see a church or a building, she'll ask, "Is that where you and papa got married? How about that?? That? THAT??" She must have asked me 50 times in Budapest and I kept telling here "WE DIDN'T GET MARRIED IN THIS COUNTRY!" but that didn't really sink in. So confusing. Granted, Austria and Hungary were at one time united, and Nick still considers it almost part of Austria. I told Nick that just because Austria had it for a decade or so 200 years ago, doesn't mean squat, but maybe it's the Austrian in him, trying to cling to his country's former glory.
We finally got the kids to the Belvedere. Actually, first we went to the Hotel Bristol, because that was closer. Big hit. Remember how beautiful the elevator was? It's the exact same. Unfortunately, they're renovating the ballroom we had our reception in, so we couldn't go down there. Disappointment! They said to come back in a month though, it'll be done by then. Good enough.
Next we walked over to the Belvedere. Well, first we stopped at this great fountain
Maybe she'll find the Upper Belvedere more impressive. We got tickets for that too (cheaper if you buy both!), and we have two weeks to get there. So I'll let you know how that goes.
