Vienna and Budapest ‣ Part 1. Schiphol

By Dmitry Kann A minute read This post in Russian 0083

One bright, or maybe cloudy day we’ve fancied a trip to Vienna. A friend of mine got to know a pretty generous person willing to put up a couple of noisy fellows. (Russians believe in their unique hospitality, but is it indeed unique?)

We’ve been also advised to give a glance at Budapest, which is only three hours away by train. It was said to be a gorgeous place. We were also lucky enough to have a stay in downtown Budapest at a low price. So the story begins.

The post was going to be large, so I decided to split it into several parts.

Schiphol

Wheel of Energy 365
Wheel of Energy 365

The ingenious Dutch have constructed an attraction called Wheel of Energy365. The wheel advertises fund-raising for a cancer research project. It revolves 24 hours a day and, from my point of view, is in itself an interesting thing. Anyone can buy a privilege to run inside for €36.5 per hour. In the meantime a cute blue bird collects money from passers-by.

There are three lanes inside the wheel, so you can invite more people to join. Undoubtedly, it’s a noble project and I honour people started it, as well as ones signing up for it.
