Trip Diaries: Vienna, Austria

Hey Lovelies

This year, I mentioned that I want to do a lot of traveling around Africa. I am so so passionate about visiting and documenting my journey around Africa, and I know I will be flooding this space with the posts. So I do not feel too guilty about being biased towards Africa, I decided to kick off the series by posting on other places I have already visited. 





And the very first installment is on my trip to Vienna, Austria.
I've visited Vienna five times. I had to go to my archive to compile these pictures.
I know I have been procrastinating on this series by clamoring for a lot of "yeas" from you to actually start it. It's finally here. Better late than never. It's simple, it doesn't really matter when I put it (when I visited the place or couple of months after). I will just be sharing the sites and sights from my lens and I hope you enjoy them. (Note: Picture overload)




Vienna is the capital of Austria. The locals call it 'Wien' (pronounced as Vien). It has a population of about 1.8 million people, mostly Austrians. Austria is made up of nine states altogether and Vienna is the largest of them all. The official language is German. It has one of the largest German speaking populations in the world.

My very first trip to Vienna. I did it with a few colleagues. My "Polish conglomerate". 
They were Erasmus students from Poland and we bonded so quickly.


I still owe them a visit to Poland :) 

Lovely castles:








And artifacts:













I couldn't get the whole image no matter how hard I tried :(

Prater


Prater is where the fun happens :)












Vienna is bounded by Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. 
It was just 3 hours by bus from Hungary. I lived in Hungary. That explains why I used to do the quick get away, right? Yea, Vienna is more bubbly and diverse compared to Hungary. People say the night life in Budapest is better. I wouldn't know. I'm more about the day life. Whenever I wanted a quick change of environment, I would just manage a 3 hour long trip (or less) to a place that was more receptive to foreigners and just basically have fun without having someone remind you every single moment "oh look, she's black". 

I guess it's because compared to Hungary as a whole, Austria has more foreigners. Vienna is a very popular place for International conferences. It is a highly visited tourist location.
It is known for its historic architecture - castles, gardens and artifacts.



I thoroughly enjoyed my trips to Vienna, and it is one place I would love to visit again in future.
