Firstly, I travel to Slovenia with my friends.Two days was enough to fall over heels in love, First day we drove in Ljubljana and explored for the whole day. We booked Tourist Farm Lovrec for 2days. This was a perfect location for us, allowing to explore freely. A dream for me Tourist Farm Lovrec was a huge apartment, flow lessly equipped and with multiple bedrooms to fit even the largest family. We enjoyed fresh milk from cows and vegetables straight from their garden. The WI-FI was good the whole place was a dream come true.
On our second day we drove to the lake bled possible more beautiful. This crystal clear slovenian lake was home to local water sports enthusiasts rather than crows of tourists at lake bled. There are endless opportunities in this area to enjoy all kinds of sports, cycling, hiking, sailing, climbing, it’s all here. Unfortunately we didn’t get to try traditional Slovenian food, we feasted on juicy peaches, crap white wine and vegetables from our host gardens along with cow fresh milk, but this didn’t give us a chance to get to restaurants or experience Slovenian home cooking.
Slovenia, we came, we saw, we liked a lots of things. In this country you could spend weeks and months enjoying but for us we spent just two day. Slovenia has beautiful nature,heels,lakes,animals etc.I wish I would travel there.
Secondly I travel to Vienna. Vienna is full of amazing history, architecture, and music and you will fall in love with different place first sight.Vienna offers a great cultural experience.Vienna is a beautiful city, big city than Cape town where I came from. Pretty much all the buildings in the city look wonderful.I also enjoyed being in Vienna, although it took many hours to arrive there by train more than four hours.
I traveled with my friends also, when I was travelling to Vienna. When we arrived in Vienna I notice how clean the street are, also I notice the architecture because it is incredible. We worked up an appetite for some music. This is an interactive museums focuses on Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and more and actually explains how music made, how we listen to music and how it affects us. The perfect way to start our trip.
I highly recommended coming in Vienna because its very well laid out and interactive, with free audio guide with your ticket. The places and museums in Vienna are beautiful and clean, and also Vienna has beautiful gardens. We did done one of my favourite things that we can do even in my city which is Cape Town , walking tour. I felt like we got such a good feeling for what the city is about, and you find hidden facts that you might not discover by just walking by.
The tour started at 12pm near the opera building and took us to some of the most important and historical parts of the city. I highly recommended that getting a tour in Vienna is one of the main attractions, there really so much history in Vienna, then we decided to go to a restaurant which is Figlmuller, they have their own schnitzel versions stuffed with cheese,they are delicious and you can sit outside in the beautiful campus at Altes Akh. They have delicious food, I enjoyed their food very well, they also have good service like I was feeling at home. I would love to go there again.
Thirdly I traveled to Klagenfurt with my classmate for a tour of one of my courses which is Doing Business in Austria. We only took 30minutes on the road Klagenfurt is near Villach where I stay. We enjoyed our four hours of a tour walking around admiring the architecture. The town had to be rebuilt in 16 century after being destroyed by fire.
We also went to church, wow the church was so beautiful, I liked it, there is opera music playing inside the church which soft the souls of people who go there. I saw the symbol of Maria Theresla, the only female who ruled the house of habsburg during history, who gave birth with 16 children ( 5 sons and 11 daughters). I also saw the symbols of dragon.
After we were done for the tour, we decided to go to the nearby restaurant in Klagenfurt, I did enjoy their food because they have culture food . It was my first time to eat the Austian culture food. It was delicious, very nice, enjoyable, tasty etc. I enjoyed the whole day in Klagenfurt.
I also traveled to Graz in Austria, Graz is quirky, colourful and full of great things to do.Graz is known as the Culinary of Austria. The food is quite different to other regions of Austria. The produce fresh and cooking techniques. Graz is a green city with countryside moments away from the city, and plenty of parks in the centre. Just below schlossberg is Buggaten a lovely park with fountains, a long water feature and plenty of space to relax on the grass in the warmer months.
Graz is a bit of a treasure trove. You will be walking along an ordinary enough street then turn a torner and be met by beautiful colourful buildings with ornate exteriors. Along with some key buildings such as the Rathaus (town hall) , Landhaus (government building) and beautiful stucco-decorated Haus Am Luegg, I loved Snapping on pics on Sporgasse- a pretty street lined with shops and cafes.
Now am planning to go to Italy with one of the University lecturer who is coming from South Africa too, she was here for more than 17 years. I want to travel all most to all countries near Austria to explore so that I can have something to talk about when am back there to South Africa. Although it is possible because I don’t have a car to travel and also need enough money to do that but I will try my best to do so. I really enjoyed being in Austria.
