I’m Walking Here: Day One in Stunning Vienna, Austria

July 5, 2016

One of my goals while in Vienna was to visit as many Viennese coffee houses as possible so I made a small list:

  • Café Ritter
  • Café Sperl
  • Café Schwarzenberg
  • Café Griensteidl
  • Café Central
  • Kleines Café

 

Café Ritter and Sperl were first on the “To Do” List for Day One in Vienna!

Café Sperl

 

Funny story…

I REALLLLLLYYYY wanted iced coffee. I wanted iced coffee with a BURING FIREY PASSION. So imagine my excitement when I saw,

“Iced”

on the menu. Obviously I ordered it 🙂

and guess what I got…

 

 

ICE CREAM.

I could have sent it back, buttttttt, I was hot, and it did look so delicious, so I ate it 😉

 

 

I was pretty full at this point so I decided to walk it off at Naschmarkt

Great market and so many great little lunch spots, too bad I was s0 full from all that coffee and ice cream…

Next stop was Belvederegarten! On the way I passed by Karlskirche…

Then I wandered through the University of Vienna Botanical Garden….my happy place 🙂

 

 

Butttttt way more greenery than pretty flowers 😉

 

At this point I am STARVING so I sprinted to my planned lunch spot,

 

Salm Bräu

 

 

I was wary of the beer cabbage, but guys. I LICKED THAT BOWL CLEAN.

so. freaking. good.

 

 

At this point I am prrreetttyyyyy tired, I mean LOOK AT ALL THAT WALKING  ⬆️

 

But there was still daylight and things to see so off I went! More coffee!

 

Café Schwarzenberg

 

 

At this point I check everything off of my Day One “To Do” List, so, decisions, decisions…..

  1. Go home and rest
  2. Go to Schönbrunn Palace

 

I bet you know which decision I made 😉

 

Schönbrunn Palace

 

 

 

STUNNING. You could easily spend ALL DAY here!

 

I walked 13 miles. WHHHHAAAAATTTTT.

 

Laying in my bed never felt so good 😉
