Being kids in Vienna

I apologise for the lack of posting around this neck of the woods the past week - we have been on a whirlwind adventure part of the trip taking us from Vienna to Prague then down to Italy where we're currently spending the next 3 weeks - buongiorno mass consumption of pizza, pasta & red wine (not to mention gelato!) The past week has been long days & tonnes of walking, early mornings & late nights and it doesn't seem like the adventures are slowing down one bit. 

But on to more important things, like our time in Vienna...

We try to do something different in every town we visit and generally stay away from doing the same thing to many times - i.e. churches & museums, so when we got to Vienna and found out they're zoo was in fact the oldest in the world, guess where we headed straight away? To their zoo of course! 

We played and laughed and sight saw like we were big kids and I oohed & awwwed as loudly as any child there especially at the gorgeous seals showing off to us stander by's and the beautiful mamma elephant & her calf. 

It was spectacular. And luckily for us, that wasn't the only thing on offer to three -Ryan, Morgs best friend was still with us for this leg of the trip- excitable, adventuring amigos. We saw a stunningly old church - yes I'm aware I just said we try to stay away from repetitive site seeing but this one was beautiful- walked the city almost top to bottom, visited the palace, the parliament, the palace gardens, the mozart museum, but most importantly, had high tea in the posh mozart cafe - we are loving our indulgent afternoon teas. 

It was an amazing 3 days with lot's of delicious home cooked breakfasts - something I was missing terribly up until that stage, wonderful walking tours, the best schnitzel we've ever eaten & incredible site seeing...& of course...the zoo!!

I have to say we're not tired yet, and aren't over the 'moving days' yet either - we have a weird ok'ness about trains & airports & everything in between so fingers & toes it stays that way for the next 2 & a half months. 

Love & Light xx

  1. Can I just say I'm so insanely in awe/jealous of your amazing adventure? You two look so happy :)

  2. I loved Vienna... we thought it was incredible! Such a gorgeous city that we could see ourselves living in... the fresh, outdoor market was a big drawcard, and those gorgeous castles!

    Loving your instagrams of your time in Italy so far - looks amazing! Stay well xx

  3. Looks like you are having a great trip Anna, that pictures looks amazing I'm diying to go to Viena for a long time now.
