Check out Red Vienna

Check out Red Vienna
Going on holiday is probably one of the greatest inventions ever, after sliced bread of course. It's such a privilege to be able to get out and about in a foreign country, soaking up someone else's culture and seeing how other people live their lives. If you're keen on learning more about a place, then booking a hostel in Vienna at this time could be a good move, as the city is hosting Red Vienna, an exhibition relating to the period when it was under the control of social democrats.

It charts the experiences of the populace between 1919 and 1934 and is open on Thursdays from 13:00 to 18:00 and on Sundays from 11:00 to 16:00 local time. I think it sounds absolutely fascinating and am hoping that it will still be on when I next make it over there. (I'm currently including this on my third stop of a world tour, starting in Europe, although I'm not quite sure as yet when I shall be departing.)

It's being put on from May 2nd in Karl-Marx-Hof, a building project that incorporated some 1,300 apartments and people who do decide to give it a go - and why wouldn't you? - will be able to find out all they can about the culture of this particular time in Vienna's history.

I've also decided that I'll be zipping off to Rome, happy to jump on the bandwagon and take into account the results of a recent survey from the John Lewis & Waitrose partnership card revealing that this is one of the more popular destinations for travel in 2010.
