Innsbruck, Austria

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times: I love Innsbruck! It was a last minute addition to our mini-Europe adventure, but I am so glad we took the slight detour and time to visit. It was my first sight of mountains in real life, and it took us ages to walk around [...]

Postcards from…Innsbruck

The tiny little city of Innsbruck sits nestled in the mountains of the Alps. As I sat on the train from Vienna, I could see the mountains looming in the distance and already knew I was going to love the place. I had no idea what to expect as Innsbruck was a last minute addition to my European [...]

Postcards from…Vienna

Before visiting Vienna, I thought it was just going to be pretty buildings and an Opera House. Although I only had a short time in the city, I quickly realised it has so much more to offer than just some fancy brickwork, and it's the reason I'll be heading back there at some point in [...]

A Night At The Vienna State Opera

If there was one thing on my Vienna wish list, it was to visit the opera. Before embarking on my mini-Europe adventure, I knew there were a few things in each city I really wanted to experience. And visiting the opera in a city renowned for its culture was, of course, high on the Vienna [...]

The City That Stole My Heart – Innsbruck!

After a complete washout yesterday, we kept our fingers crossed that the forecasted sun made an appearance in the city of Innsbruck. And an appearance it most definitely made! With a train booked in the evening, we wanted to make the most of the day. Bags left at reception and all checked out by 10am, [...]

Next stop: Innsbruck

Early would be an understatement. I wasn't sure whether a 6.30am train would be a good idea, but after a few people said it'd be worth it to get to Innsbruck early, I went ahead and booked it. To say I was regretting it when I had to get up at 5am to get ready [...]

Seeing the sights of Vienna!

The days when we didn't have to catch a train or other transport generally started a bit later, because who doesn't love a bit of a lie in? Unfortunately, the horses of the Spanish Riding School only exercise (that we could see) in the morning, so we were up and out early to make it [...]

Time For Another Train: Heading to Vienna!

After 3 days in Prague, it was time to move on to our next city - Vienna. I'd booked an early train to try and make the most of our time in Vienna, and last minute packing meant we thought we were cutting it quite fine to get to the train station in time. I [...]

It’s really happening?!

16 days, 4 countries and a couple of backpacks. I have so many far-fetched and imaginative ideas that many remain just that, ideas. But this time my latest idea has actually come to life, and on Saturday my boyfriend and I will be setting off on our longest trip together for a couple of weeks [...]
