New Travel Experiences with Europe

August 15, 2016

Hello Inquisitive Writers! Or, should I say Inquisitive travelers. The reason why I wasn’t blogging for the past weeks is because…  I was on vacation! 

We planned to hit 4 places in Europe in 18 days. Austria, two cities in Serbia, and Montenegro. In all, we took 6 plane rides.

We took a plane to Switzerland (we took Swiss Airlines.) and then drove 2 hours to Bregenz, Austria to our relatives.

 It was a 7 hour flight, which wasn’t bad. We got two courses and -get this- milk chocolate after each meal!! Swiss quality, am I right? But one funny thing happened on the plane. Ok, so this little poodle (it was wearing a diaper!!) just appeared at our feet. So the poodle stays there for a while, wondering where she was, and eventually turns and runs for the aisle. We were so shocked and surprised that we didn’t know what to do! A little after, the flight attendants were trying to search for it on the plane. Turns out the owners of the poodle were sitting right in front of us. Of all the seats on the plane, they had to sit right in front of us. On the other hand, this makes for some good airplane gossip πŸ˜†

Austrians are eco, I can tell you that. There’s about as many bicycles as cars on the road!! Some even ride electric bicycles. They’re the same as regular bicycles, but if you’re tired, the bike rides for you (on electric energy, of course) I haven’t seen anything like this anywhere! So, if you’re a cycler, Austria is your place to go.

Going to downtown Bregenz is what I would recommend if you want to tour Austria a bitIMG_4813.jpg


Keep in mind, the main language here is German. Some signs and writing aren’t translated in English, so it’ll be nice to bring a notebook that has common German phrases like “How much does this cost?” or “I’ll get this” and many others. Think before you write.
Mmm.. Get the bread here. It’s good. 
One in a million
Very colorful buildings!


Ok, so our relatives wanted to show us the tiniest house in Austria, and this is it! It’s a tiny house, WHICH I LOVED SO MUCH! We actually considered knocking on the door, to see who lives there, but that would be rude. Still, I wanted to see the inside though…

Downtown has a lot of variety of things to do and see. There is a multitude and variety of shops.  For example, there are kitchen shops, ice-cream shops, coffee shops,  bakerys, clothing shops, sneaker shops, Austrian souvenir shops, and much more! I totally recommend it.

Who owns this bike?! #wantit

If you make a left turn on your way to downtown, you’ll find the lake here. It is used for boating, fishing, and sometimes swimming.


I found a gazebo connected to a dock and found some treasure (in photography terms)


This is another shot from the dock. See those swans in the middle? Turns out swans can not only be graceful but feisty! We visited a park earlier and saw this guy feeding the ducks and swans, and this huge swan starting pushing its way through the ducks! Watch out for swans! And DON’T feed the birds people.


You can book a cruise on these boats and tour Austria on the lake for a day.
When you’re taking a walk on those hot, sunny, days, cool yourself off in this cold, shallow pool of water. It’s about 2.5 feet or less.

Also, in downtown Bregenz, we went to the famous Bregenz festival.  It’s not your ordinary theater, people. It was a STADIUM! An outdoor stadium, so you  don’t have to dress up like you are going to a Vienna opera, for example. They set up this humongous Wall of China and a little castle and everything. We got the top, top seat. The actors were speaking in Italian, and there were screens to translate…in German. So, I had no idea what was happening, and I was sitting in my seat for 2 hours. But it somehow grasped my attention, and it was good for my eyes and ears. This gave me time to focus on other things. The costumes were very nice! They were sparkly and all had nice colors to them. The singing was great ,too. It was deep and beautiful,for the mens’ and womens’ voices. The lighting was eye-catching when night fell. If you want to attend, they hold it every year in Bregenz, outside, in the same place. 4/5 stars.

Well, that was my travel experience in Austria. A lot in just 3 days, right? Are you planning to go to Austria or around that area? Did you go there before? Do you come from Austria, Swizterland or Germany?

  1. Austria is one of the Countries I want to visit. I heard about the small houses I wonder why it’s so small compared to normal houses. Good for you to make it all worthwhile.
