View of the summer palace of the Hapsburgs, Schönbrunn, from the Glorietta : Vienna, AT
At one point during my tenure in Vienna, I lived in an apartment on the Hietzingerhauptstraße, which isn't that far from Vienna's -- and in fact, all of Austria's -- most famous castle, Schloß Schönbrunn. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to see the inside, so it was high on the list of places I wanted to see if ever I returned to Vienna. Since we weren't able to see everything we wanted the day before, Maya and I trekked back up to the city without Charlie. It was absolutely horrid weather; pouring rain, wind. We took our cameras with us, but since photography was not allowed inside and it was too damn wet to use them outside, we shot photos with our iPod Touches instead. So, here you go. Crappy Instagram photos!

Schönbrunn has some really beautiful gardens. This was the best I could do, given the weather : Vienna, AT
