Day 242 — A day in the park
31-March-1972 (Freitag–Fri.)


Gardens of Schonbrunn Palace

Good Freitag. Beautiful day. I really just love it when the weather is great. Spent the morning doing music. Good.

Will rest, the rest of the day.

Went to the park. Read some science fiction, studied French and German. It was very enjoyable and pleasant to sit in the fresh air and sun, and relax and watch people. Too bad I can’t do it more often.


In the park. I take advantage of a beautiful day in Vienna and get to read, study and relax in one of Vienna’s beautiful parks. Seeing some of my park photos reminds me of how nice it is to be outside in the parks. The Viennese parks are beautiful and there are a lot of them. When you are in the center of the city, you have a tendency to have many more parks than found in a typical U.S. city.

Park photos. The opening photo is of the gardens of Schönbrunn Palace on the outskirts of Vienna. I didn’t go there today, but many of the sightseeing venues of Vienna also have beautiful gardens or parks. I have posted many photos of my walks through the Vienna city parks and sightseeing trips. You can click on “parks” or “spring” or “sightseeing” in the tags area on the right column to see the posts related to those tags. Check out parks on Days 029, 069, 076, 083, 181, and 230.
