Included in our Europe itinerary is visiting Vienna, Austria where my husband’s college friend, Cirilo invited us.
From Milano Centrale to Wien Hauptbahnhof station via Trenitalia was the most exciting train ride we ever experienced. Along the way, we got to see the spectacular view of the Alps from the window.
We left Milan at 8 PM, Arrived at Wein Hauptbahnhof at around 9AM.
The Wein Hauptbahnhof Train Station features a wide array of shops and restaurants.
We had coffee and some bread at Exclusiv, one of the coffee shops inside the station.

That ended our first day.
Our day 2 is a Palm Sunday so we attended mass at Pfarre Baden St. Stephan /Frauenkirche then, go on a hiking afterward.
We are blessed to witness the Easter Sunday Celebration the Austrian way. It’s a totally different Easter Sunday Celebration compared to our country. We started the procession from outside the church (uphill). Children carried tall sticks decorated with streamers and of course palm tree branches.
Two donkeys were joining the procession with the bishop.
Hiking in Baden Bei Wien. Our most beautiful nature walk. One of the reasons to thank God for his wonderful creations.
