So I started in Berlin with some 2000 Dollars. But I needed more.

I took a plane to Vienna, where I spent only one day. My guide was a former room mate of mine who happens to live in Austria’s capital now.

Vienna is the most beautiful city. And it is quite visible that it is one of the few cities that once ruled the world (specifically during the 16th century when the Holy Roman Emperor was also King of Spain).


And there is even a historical “Judenviertel” (Jewish quarter).
