While I haven’t updated anything here for the last few months, I’ve been quietly working away on my backlog of videos from my past trips. I’ve actually written about these on the blog already but due to spreading them out over multiple posts, there didn’t seem to be any appropriate spot to include the accompanying videos.
So I’m just gonna put them both here! I’ll link to the related blog posts below each one that includes all the photos and story behind these videos.
We’re finally at the last Eurotrip destination! Our final stop in Austria was Innsbruck, neatly residing within a valley between two large mountain ranges. After nearly a month of traveling, we took a more relaxed approach to the few remaining days we had left, turning down the notch on what we wanted to see and just spent time strolling the city or resting at the hotel. We were fortunate enough to have beautiful clear skies throughout our entire stay as well, making it a nice end to our long trip.
Of all the places we planned to visit during our Eurotrip, I think I was most excited about seeing Salzburg. I won’t lie, most of my preconceived ideas of the city were based solely off my love for the Sound of Music movie and I couldn’t wait to discover what it was really like. Delightfully, it completely lived up to my expectations of being a beautiful and charming town nestled in between the encompassing mountains. The only downside was the development of cold that crept up on me during the train ride but it was a minor nuisance that I could tolerate in such a lovely city.
We were up early, waiting for our bus to arrive on the main street of Mestre. We had a long bus ride from Venice to the Italian Austrian border, where we would switch and take a train the rest of the way into Vienna. A full day of travel logistics that I’ve never done before made me incredibly anxious as one mis-step could de-rail the entire trip.
I was pleasantly relieved when the bus arrived and we promptly loaded our luggage in an orderly fashion before we were on our way. The difference between the service of the driver with his friendly and helpful nature compared to those I’d dealt with in Italy instantly struck me and would become a recurring theme throughout our time in Austria.
