Austria: Vienna & Tyrol

Beautiful Austria is for sure my favourite country. Stunning scenery and beautiful houses – felt like we were in The Sound of Music! Vienna was our first Austrian city where we stayed for 2 nights. We went to a Mozart and Strauss concert which was performed by an Austrian symphony orchestra who played many famous songs composed by Mozart and Strauss. The following day we explored the town of Vienna.  Nat went underneath St. Stephen’s Cathedral and ventured through the chilling catacombs which hold thousands of skeletons from medieval times.

That night we were taken out to the Viennese woods for an authentic dinner which included schnitzel and apple strudel.

Our second stay in Austria was at Tyrol where we went white water rafting and paragliding. While in Austria, we also went to the Schnaps museum and Swarovski Crystal World.
