Weather: Sunny and cooling
Mood: Tired - been out and abt the whole day today by foot- I think we walked like 5km today.. phewwww
Peak Agenda: Factory Outlet and Vienna Prater - All the photos were taken on Friday.. we spent like a good 5hrs at the factory outlet... it was so cold and windy in the morning but by lunch we no longer had to use any pullover or jackets... Hb later took us to the Prater - which i later found out its actually an amusement park hehehe (hb said this place used to be a hunting ground ... hmmmm interesting)
Infor: The Vienna Prater is a large park in the 2nd District. Its actually an amusement park since 1766 (the Viennese sure know how to have fun!). In 1873 it was the site of the world expo and like any amusement park it has many rides and also Horror Houses, Carousels and Mirror Cabinets. The main icon of the Prater is the 64.75m high ferris wheel built in 1897.... It was built to commemorate Kaiser Franz Joseph's Golden Jubilee (Errr dear... what will I get for our Golden Jubilee hahaha).
Oh by the way.. Originally the Ferris Wheel had 30 gondolas but it was used as target practice by the allied air forces - so it now only has 15 gondolas left.
Anyway so much abt the history and infor.. we had lots of fun and went on an old Slide as well which Sonia loved... she kept on saying.. "I likeeeeee" after we walked out of the Prater... enjoy the photos peeps cos tmrw there will more photos of today!

Sonia was scolded by papa for playing with Tartare sauce and look at the way she walks with her head down... haha
The Wiener Prater and its famous Ferris Wheel (originally it had double the amount of Gondolas - so now there is a wide gap between each gondola)
Let's play some games!
Lots of different rides for young and old
Another Ferris Wheel at the Prater (but newer)
