Travelettes Guide to Summer in Vienna

•••
It's hard to not dream of a perfect summer, when looking out of my Berlin window into the pouring rain in the middle of July. And while Vienna is not commonly considered the go-to destination for a summer holiday I recently found it to be exactly that. It was the end of June when I packed my bags and left for the Austrian capital which greeted me with a deli[...]

7 things to do in Nassfeld, Austria

•••
These past weeks, I've been feeling like a robot. The same routine every day: going to work, doing sports, writing university applications, eating, waiting for him to call and not sleeping enough. I'd been having  headaches on the daily and my motivation was on its very lowpoint. It was exactly the moment when a travelette knows just what she needs to do: GE[...]

You may have heard of Innsbruck as the ski and snowboard capital of the Alps and the perfect place to stay for those who are up for a more urban environment after some hours in the slopes. What you might not realise is that it's also a sweet destination in summer for anyone enjoying a great outdoor holiday complete with hiking tours, mountain biking, rafting[...]

The Penz - staying classy in Innsbruck

•••
We had never really seen much of Austria, apart from sporadic weekend trips to Vienna and so we were quite happy when earlier this year we got the chance to spend some time to Innsbruck, Austria earlier this year to attend the Travel Bloggers United (TBU) conference.

Oetz Valley, Austria - Vertigo is the way to go

•••
In my mind, Austria was all about Heidi, Yodeling and hot ski instructors. That being said, I had never been to Austria before  last month, when the Travelettes headed down to charming Innsbruck to attend the Travel Bloggers United conference, followed by a blog trip to Ötztal Valley in Tyrol.  After the chilled town of Innsbruck, we were all pretty stoked a[...]

Marvel, Nibble and Shop at Naschmarkt Vienna

•••
The beautiful city of Vienna is about so much more than coffeeshops, old ladies walking their poodles and Schnitzel. Not that you shouldn't indulge in mouth-watering food while you're there, but imagine doing that... whilst shopping?! The Naschmarkt is a traditional institution in Vienna, it's been around since the 19th century. The name derives from th[...]

Travel Bloggers Unite 2011 - Our trip to Innsbruck

•••
A week ago, we mentioned that a few of us went to Innsbruck to attend the Travel Bloggers Unite conference (read about it here). Upon arrival, we were greeted with gorgeous mountains, beautiful architecture and clear blue skies and from that moment our cameras were practically attached to our hands 24/7. In Austria, we had only been to Vienna before, [...]

Topfen, a Recipe from the Austrian Alps

•••
This winter as I braved the elements across Europe, I settled for just under a month at a dairy farm a little ways out of Salzburg in Austria. I woke up every morning at 5am to help milk to 30 or so cows, spent the day doing tasks around the house, playing with my hosts’ son, taking small walks in attempts to glimpse the Alps through the fog, and desperately[...]
