This easter weekend, we finally zeroed in to visit Wien (Vienna). It was a last moment plan with no reservations in any of the fast trains, but who complains when you have budgeted groupe tickets available, both for Vienna, and Bayern Area. We decided to go using the cheapest possible option (recession time Smile ).

 

The route we decided to follow was Munich-Salzburg-Linz-StValentine-Vienna.


View Larger Map

Our first destination was Salzburg, where you can reach anytime from Munich using a cheap group Bayern Ticket. We stopped at Salzburg for the brunch, and left for Wien. In Austria, they have this Einfach-Raus- Ticket   which allows for great savings and unlimited travel for groups of up to five persons on local regional trains run by Austrian Railways (ÖBB).

Since we decided for the cost saver option, we had to compromise on time factor (and comfort as changing trains at a number of destinations is not always a pleasing thing to do). There was no direct regio train to Vienna, and we were supposed to change at Linz, St Valentine.  But because of some maintenance work (?) going on, train connectivitity between Haag and Amstetten was broken.  ÖBB had arranged for a bus between the two stations. It was scenic all the way from Haag to Amstettan, and that minimsed our disappoitment a bit.

I slept and I cried, 
I wept and I tried,

Ibn-Rushd came to me and exclaimed “Son, what pains thee?”,
I cried “O’ holy saint you do not what ails me”.

I doubt my doubt, doubt itself is unsure,
I think, yet I think if my deed is pure,

Time and time again, I open my eyes,
I am astonished to find myself still kicking and alive,

How long will this journey continue?
Didn’t you promise that there would be a time of the selected few?

Ibn-Rushd hung his head and then there was a sigh,
Son, the promise is conditional; deed alone will reach the mighty high.

Thanks to Behzy for providing this.

Saw this interesting video of this famous song by Billy Joel at http://yeli.us/Flash/Fire.html and couldn't resist adding it here.
Enjoy the song, with due credit to creator of this swf.

Nitish to haar rahain hai is baar” said my co-passenger sitting in the seat next to me. Is he talking to me? I gave him a confused look, and then he said it again – “Nitish ji to haar rahain hain” with a confident look. I realized he was commenting on the front page of a local magazine, I was reading. The magazine had Nitish on its front page, with title, “Change of era in Bihar” or something like that.  I gave him a curious look and he tried to explain me why he thinks so. Look, the way Nitish government has done the recruitment of illiterates (?) as primary school teachers, the way he reopened Bhagalpur riot case, and got only Hindus arrested, we won’t leave him. Wow, he seems to be a political expert... before I could say, the gentleman sitting in the corner confronted him, how can you bring religion in that. Those who were culprits got arrested. … Well now who is he? Before I could make any guess, he himself came to rescue; I am ex-student leader of Tilka Manjhi bhagalpur university.  “I am a supporter of Lalu Yadav”, he continued, but still I am not against Nitish govt in this case. I closed my magazine, after all who wants to read a magazine when you have live Lok Sabha going on in your compartment.  It was indeed a Lok Sabha session going on, with heated exchange of arguments and counter arguments going on. Suddenly they moved from State politics to central politics.

No we are not going to Paris!

Why? Is Paris Hilton, who was our tour guide, not well?

Nonsense. Don’t crack PJs, there’s no decent accommodation available out there, as this is peak time..

So..??

So what? Let me think…

Dude don’t think but act. I don’t want to spend entire three day long weekend in Office…

Ok, how about Venice

Not a bad idea… Let’s book tickets…

No, we are going by car

Car?

??

Car...

Yes Car…

Hell no, it will be hectic...

Are you in senses…? It will be fun filled with adventure…

Adventure? Are you going to do bungee jumping while driving..

STFU…#%@$.

Whosoever kills an innocent human being, it shall be as if he has killed all mankind, and whosoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind.


Holy Quran 5:32

I wonder, if this Ayaah of Quraan shareef, was missed by those terrorists who find their inspirations from religon, or is that they failed to comprehend the meaning of this great Ayaah! In either case, this loss of data, in comprehension is posing a serious threat to humanity, and bringing a bad name to the religion itself.
