C’mon kid hold on tight, let adventure be the name of your new ride.
Needless to say, Europe is beautiful. Everything about it: the people, the architecture, the food and the atmosphere. This was my first time visiting Europe and I’m already counting down the days until my next trip. I found everything so visually appealing and intriguing. I was able to meet people from so many different countries and experience life differently for a couple of weeks – it was really special!
First, I flew to Austria to meet-up with my close friend Liana who recently moved here to study. We visited Graz for a couple of days and afterwards, we headed to Salzburg. The Sound of Music (one of my all time favorite classics) was filmed here. You can only imagine how excited I was to see the same beautiful landscapes in real life! We went for a walk in the beautiful Mirabell Garden and saw the prettiest roses. Afterwards, we went to Café Tomaselli to have a glass of wine and enjoyed a birds-eye view of the busy city filled with ladies wearing classic square neck Drindl dresses. I wanted to buy one so badly but they are definitely not cheap!
We continued our travels by heading to Munich. What are the odds of planning a trip to Germany in the middle of Oktoberfest? It was totally unplanned but it worked out perfectly. Munich is breathtaking. It was probably one of my favorite places to visit. There were so many beautiful cafés, fountains and the most intriguing public art (I love love love public art).
A couple of days later, we flew from Munich to Venice. Although we skipped out on the gondola ride, we most certainly did not forget to taste the yummy gelato. It was one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted and definitely refreshing because it was quite a warm day.
It is impossible to visit only but one city in Italy. We headed to Capri for the longest stay of our trip and boy oh boy was it ever worth it. I don’t think neither of us (my friend and I) fully understood how incredible this island was going to be. From the moment we arrived to our house in Capri, we couldn’t grasp the fact that we were standing in front of such beautiful landscapes. Like seriously, it was amazing. I will never forget the pebble beaches, sunsets that can easily be mistaken for paintings and the crystal clear blue water. I had some of the most delicious Italian pasta there. The pizza was insanely delicious as well. I’m craving it now just thinking about it!
We returned to Graz yesterday and I will definitely enjoy my last couple of days here in this beautiful City. Austria is totally underrated.
PS: I will be making separate blog-posts for my OOTD in each city visited.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it!
