Highs & Lows

I really enjoy the museums and the Christmas market ( Weihnachtsmarkt). I speak German, but didn’t have to use it a lot

Most of my trip was really cloudy and cold but it didn’t rain.

Itinerary Overview

Austria was really fun. I didn’t expect as much culture, nature, food incredible architecture all in one place. I had a wonderful time both times. I didn’t expect to have so much fun. It was amazing, however, at the time I didn’t know a lot about the history of the country, so sometimes I didn’t get some parts of the city tours.  I will recommend you before going there read a little bit, so it gets easier not just walking around, but I also appreciate their culture way better.  I lived in Germany for 1 year, so I was already used to their cuisine, in Austria even though it’s different it’s not that far apart so for me. It was not a problem and I really like a lot of things, but a friend of mine really had a hard time. So if you have any food preferences search before going there.
