Rigoletto

The Wien Staatsoper, the Vienna opera house.

When we were in Vienna, we were lucky enough to get a chance to see an opera. Well, I suppose luck doesn’t have much to do with it; if you are willing to stand for 2 hours in line, and then another 3 while watching the opera, you can buy cheap, 3 euro tickets. The standing room spots weren’t the greatest (as expected) but you could hear the music and watch the orchestra. Plus, they have small screens at every place giving you the lyric translations. It was definitely a great experience, and if I ever go back to Vienna I will likely do it again!

Gingervere is the Middle English origin of ginger. Despite being the go-to word to describe redheads, some definitions of ginger are: spirit, liveliness, vigor, piquancy, enliven, and animation.

I'm a 21-year-old student originally from Canada, but currently on an adventure in Belgium for the semester. This blog will follow me, my musings, and whatever shenanigans I get up to while I travel around Europe and occassionally attend classes.
