once again ... Vienna!

Travel Jun 05, 2018

Each January 1, I wake up early to catch the Eurovision broadcast of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra's New Year's concert from Vienna's Musikverein. And each year, it makes me want to visit Vienna again. I do not always give into this feeling, but every other year, I cannot help myself, so I book my train tickets and find a good airbnb apartment. Now that it is 2018, I'm going back for a week of total immersion, once again :-)

As with previous years, I have been making my lists, adding them both to Foursquare and Google Maps, but this year, I have also added some details to a Moleskine Vienna edition to see if I can stay away from my phone a bit more and be more analogue in my travels.

I always start with an apartment and train tickets, but once I decide (and get approved!) on my apartment and the neighborhood, next up I check the Vienna's tourist website: https://www.wien.info/en. An excellent start, both for first time visitors and for returnees like me. I especially look for interesting exhibitions and little gems: this year, I have hit a jackpot because Vienna is celebrating its architect Otto Wagner. I am familiar with some of his buildings, but I am hoping to learn and see more in visits to MAK and Wien Museum. Another surprise is Keith Haring at the Albertina: Keith Haring. The Alphabet.

Other than that, I will see where the city and the weather will lead me: no idea yet.

Vienna visits: - 2012 - 2014 - 2016 (notice a theme?)
