Start of a 3-week trip across Basel, Bratislava and Vienna

London Gatwick Airport, Euroairport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg and Basel

I'm back in Basel for the first week of a three-week trip to Central Europe; week 1 will consist of a week teaching in the outskirts of Basel, in week 3 I'll be teaching in the outskirts of Vienna, and the middle week will be free. Rather than go home for that week, I'll be going to a place I haven't been to before - Bratislava - for a few days, then arriving in Vienna a couple of days early so I can see a few sights I haven't had the chance to visit on my previous times there.

There were no issues at all with the flight and then bus into town. I was sitting next to one of my colleagues for the coming week on the flight so we took the bus and walked from the station to the hotel together as well. As it happens our hotel is only a few minutes' walk from where I stayed for a night last September, so I remembered the way.

Once I'd settled in I went back to the station to get some stuff for breakfast tomorrow (nearly everywhere closes on Sundays in Austria, Germany and seemingly Switzerland, except for at train and bus stations), as we won't be getting breakfast at the hotel like we normally do. I came out with two herby rolls, a coffee yoghurt, some Coke Zero for general drinking, a pastry for a late lunch, and a carton of milk; to my delight, I've got a kettle in my hotel room, as well as coffee and sugar sachets (a kettle sounds like a standard thing to get in a hotel room, but I've never had one while teaching in Europe before!)
