So whenever I’m in another country, I’m (embarrassingly) always intrigued by how the McDonald’s menu varies. I know it might sound silly, but I can’t help but be drawn in and explore the menu. I hadn’t gotten a chance to go into a McCafé yet (as they’re called here) until today. Anna and Will mentioned they had gone in a couple of days ago to try the brie spitzen and claimed it was amazing. Parvina and Kathy weren’t as big of fans, but Kate and I were curious after it was mentioned. Turns out deep fried wedges of brie cheese served with raspberry sauce from McDonald’s ain’t so bad. I also ordered an eiscafé, assuming it was an iced coffee—almost right. It was actually half a cup of coffee and half vanilla ice cream. Definitely the pick-me-up I needed. Both were hard to compare to Canadian poutines, but I’m glad I gave it a shot. I’ll probably stick to picking up quick foods from falafel stands and Anker from here on out.
We leave for Horn tomorrow at 7:51 am so I’m just packing and resting tonight. One of the bike rides includes a journey to the Czech border, so hopefully I can endure that. If not, it should be a relaxing few days in the Austrian countryside regardless. Catch ya in Horn (Horn?).
PS—I was offered a full-time job today. More details to come later. Wien ist mein Glücksbringer.
