So last weekend during our holidays I went to Austria to visit my friend Klara who had been a teaching assistant but her contract was finished before ours. I had never been to Austria so I was looking forward to it . If I was to write about everything that we did this post would probably be the length of a college essay so instead I will give you a quick over view and then a sample of the many pictures that I took. Arriving to a near winter wonderland with snow everywhere and a 6 hour car ride which should have only taken 1 due to the motorway being closed the trip was off to an interesting start. Staying with Klara’s family was great although having no German was interesting but they had some English or Klara would translate or we’d just get along with some gestures. We did lots of travelling for the four days that we were there, travelling to Salzburg and Vienna and also discovering the Wachau region with towns such as Melk and Krems which was amazing. Along with discovering the different regions we also went on a food tour of Asutria from schnitzel to sachertorte to knodel we tried to try as much as we could while we were there.
It was so nice to see Klara’s home and to be shown around be her, we probably would have been lost without her translations.Of course saying goodbye at the end was hard as we don’t know when we will see each other again, the problem with having friends who live all over the world. We had such a good trip and I can’t wait to head back to Austria soon and discover it some more.
