    Exhausted migrants hoping to begin a new life in the European Union waited patiently at a train station in Vienna, Austria, on Monday to continue their journey into the mainland Europe, NBC News reported.

    Nineteen-year-old Mohammed from Syria said he and his family traveled for 20 days through Greece, Macedonia, and Hungary before reaching Austria where they were greeted with food and clothes. 

    “There is food, there are people helping each other,” Mohammed told NBC News. “It shows me there’s a chance for a better world.”

    Mohammed said they were treated better in Austria than in Hungary where, he said, authorities put them in holding camps "like sheep."
