Have made it as far as Vienna, after an unpleasant night on the train.

Entertained delusions of being some sort of roving reporter, wryly giving a running commentary on our holidays. But internet points are not really conducive to that kind of behaviour. Will have to belatedly break everything down from the safe comforts of my office (´the nerve centre´) in Brussels.

What I can report is this: AS Roma won the SuperCup, and Vienna is just outside the doors of this train station.
