Europe - Day Two
Ok. Trying to keep a positive attitude.... We got comfortable on the lobby sofa, started chatting with the other couples, looking at guidebooks trying to decide what we could do that morning...
By 7:30am, we were getting hungry. We asked when breakfast would be served at the hotel. Not until 9am (Sunday brunch), and it would be $15 a person. They wouldn't even give us a free breakfast for our wait! The hubby and I decided to go for a walk and hopefully find something to eat. No luck. Apparently, NOTHING opens before 9am on a Sunday.
Eventually, the hubby and I walked down the street where we saw breakfast being served. We walked in, asked for a table and enjoyed a beautiful brunch. Eggs, bacon, every imaginable pastry you could think of, smoked salmon, and veggie rolls, fresh orange juice, and strong coffee. It was nice to relax and eat for a few moments. But when we got up to leave and pay our bill - it was REALLY expensive! We spent more on this breakfast than we would on several meals combined for the rest of the week! Uff-da. Live and learn.
