Top Places To Visit 8 Spots
The schonbrunn place is about 15 km from the city centre. It is also approachable by metro. There are two tours available- one for 20 rooms and the other for forty rooms of the palace. We took the 40 room tour and the remaining rooms are very richly decorated and not to be missed. There is also beautiful garden a little distance from the palace and the Schonbrunn zoo is also in the vicinity
Hotel Sacher Wien
If there is ever a souvenir you want to take back from Vienna, let it be the 3 kilos you will gain from eating all the wonderful food. Sure, Vienna is famous for the Schnitzel, but the chances of you finding one without pork are slim (God bless the chef at our hotel for serving up turkey schnitzel to us everyday!) But if you are like me who won't eat any pork or beef, even better! Because, then you will have all the space in your stomach to gorge on the rich cakes (kuchen in German). First up was the famous Sacher Torte. The Original Sacher-Torte was invented by Hotel Sacher and till this day invite long queues of people wanting a slice of Vienna. The original recipe remains a secret, but it is basically a chocolate cake coated with apricot jam, chocolate icing and topped with whipped cream. It certainly doesn't come cheap, but is worth a try. A walk further down will take you to another iconic bakery of Vienna, called "Aida". A popular bakery in Vienna since 1913, Aida today offers mouthwatering cakes, pastries, macaroons and tarts. They also have their own version of the Sacher Torte. They have different branches all over the city and all are done up in pink decor.
New Years Eve BratislavaNew Years Day a very hungover group of us set off on the train to Vienna, the Capital of Austria. It appeared to be a charming city steeped in history, but in our post party haze we just couldn’t do it justice. This has been added to the list for a re-visit at some point when we’re feeling a little bit fresher!The rest of the trip was spent back in Bratislava sampling traditional Slovak food such as hearty meaty soups and stews with dumplings.FebruaryFebruary was a quiet month on the travel front, except for a cheeky girls trip to London to see Eddie Izzard for a friends birthday. Other than that it was full steam ahead with the planning and preparations for our big adventure. We began to think about how we were going to get to Cambodia, and more importantly we brainstormed and made some decisions on how we were going to fund the trip and what we would do with our house. Brainstorming to Travel, and Live and Work AbroadAndy completed a 120 hours TEFL Certificate, to enable him to teach English abroad. His YouTube Channel ‘GOING NOMAD…aka pigs on bikes’ was also born (his first vlog was a review of his TEFL course), and I began to create this blog.March
