Take me to Vienna

Someone very wise said the following: "Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true. When will you realise...Vienna waits for you."

VIENNA IS WAITING FOR YOU PEOPLE. It is a definite go to destination to put on your lists. It ticks all the boxes: Great Food, Great sights, Great vibe and just an overall great place to visit.

Me and Lauren have both always dreamed of going away together and so Vienna was calling our name. We visited Vienna in November, we highly recommend going at this time or anywhere close to the Christmas period. The Christmas markets, lights, ice skating, and  Christmas spirit made the trip perfect.

This is a trip we are never going to forget, we had an unforgettable experience.
If we were to describe our experience in Vienna in one word it would be: Magical. It was kind of too good to be true, At the end of every day we were there we would look at each other and just be in awe of the day we just had. There is so much to see and explore, and the beauty of it all is breath taking. We couldn't go to Vienna and not eat the famous Wiener Schnitzel - if you go you must try it. We ate at the famous figlmuller Restaurant. Here's a few of the many (hundreds) of photos we took.

 All day, every day we came across Christmas markets. But they weren't just any Christmas markets, these were the type of markets it takes you hours to get round every stall. But so worth it.

One of our favourite memories from Vienna was taking a horse and carriage ride around the city. The beautiful cobble stoned roads did make it a bit of a bumpy ride. But where better to get round the whole city than in a horse and carriage am i right?

 Hot chocolate was a MUST. I mean we are BIG hot chocolate fans in our family. But yes go to Vienna around Christmas time but Yes bring layers and Yes be prepared to buy a lot of hot chocolate because you'll need it. ( i wasn't complaining...this was probably my 5th cup.)

One of our favourite moments was on the very first evening of the trip. We went to Karls Platz and there was a huge ice skating rink right in front of the town hall. You have to go there at night, when it's all lit up it is simply magical. 

       Smiles all round in Vienna.
Vienna is full of surprises!!!

We wanted to go on a spontaneous trip so why not Vienna. We regret nothing. We fell in  love with Vienna.
Life is supposed to filled with spontaneous choices which create lasting memories. Next spontaneous trip of our dreams: Venice, Italy (watch this space.)
