Photos: Miss Saigon, Raimund Theater and Freud Museum (Vienna)

Miss Saigon at the Raimund Theater in Vienna


Months ago, we decided to book a trip to Vienna from Stockholm and stay there for 2 weeks where we would take a side trip to Croatia by bus and train. We thought we would take a bus to Zagreb and stay there for 2 nights and then proceed to Rijeka and Opatija for a stay of 4 nights before taking the train back to Vienna. We planned our trip early so we were able to get good rates for our hotel stays which included staying at two Hilton properties in Zagreb (DoubleTree by Hilton and the Canopy by Hilton Zagreb City Centre) as well as the Hilton Rijeka Costabella Resort and Spa which opened July of last year, and where we got an upgrade to their Costabella Suite. It was really cool to have done this trip as all three cities we visited were beautiful and interesting and the people were friendly.

After our wonderful trip to Croatia visiting the cities of Zagreb, Opatija and Rijeka, we were back to our second home, Vienna. We had earlier planned to visit the Freud Museum last time we were in Vienna but it was closed so we thought we´d have to do it this time. As per the Miss Saigon, it was last minute as I saw an ad that they were having it in Vienna at the newly renovated Raimund Theater. Even though it was in German, I did not hesitate as there was surtitle provided and I know more or less the story and the songs in English because Miss Saigon was very popular in the Philippines when our very own Lea Salonga got the role of Kim when it first played. Of course, there was this feeling of regret in me (of not being able to see the play when Lea was the lead role). Below are some of the photos from Miss Saigon and Freud Museum.

This was the home and office of Sigmund Freud in Vienna. Most of their belongings were taken to London when they moved there during the war so not much was left here.
