There is a magical land of chocolate in Austria… only an hour and half away. Even though I’m not a huge fan of chocolate, a friend was visiting us from London and she absolutely insisted we go. Chocoholics beware – read on at your own risk!
For us it was clear, right from the start when I decided to move to Austria, that Thomas and I were in it together, that the end goal was to spend our lives together.
It was quite a stressful though adventurous way to start a new relationship, but we very quickly realised that we were highly compatible and could definitely make it work.
I went to Prague in 2007 and spent 3 freakishly hot (40+) days with a couple of girlfriends. It’s a beautiful town, rich in history and architecture, and one of the few big cities I actually enjoy.
My first Austrian wedding was in May. The weather was cool, but sunny, the bride looked beautiful and it was heaps of fun.
But there are lots of differences between Austrian weddings and what I’m used to. Read on to find out all about the crazy Austrian wedding traditions.
I was really looking forward to summer 2014. Having arrived back in Australia the previous August, I had almost just gone through two winters, the Austrian one being a lot colder than anything I’d previously experienced. It started warming up around March, albeit slowly and we made plans for all the holidays and short trips we would take during summer. We live right in the mountains, among the lakes so there is plenty of hiking to be done, lakes to relax around and small, out-of-the-way places to stay.
