Come With Us: Austria

315 days of #vanlife

Most people think of classical music, opera, or posh coffee when they think of Vienna. We found a lot of diverse sides to Vienna, however, and these are a few shots of our moments we enjoyed in Austria.


The weather wasn’t the best on our arrival to Vienna, but it was picturesque.


Highway side going to Vienna.


Sign for Wien aka Vienna. Here we come!


Mork in Vienna. Difficult time for parking.


The parking ticket, that we had to decode in Vienna. Still not sure we understood perfectly. Ha.


Armando cycling. Hopefully, this doesn’t designate the end* of cycling in Vienna. Grin.


St. Stephen’s Cathedral, in reflection. Love this shot.


Lucky number seventeen!


There was super interesting street art that was a surprise from Vienna. Completely unexpected and nice to see.


You’ll never guess where we’re going in this photo. Hats, lights and soon down in the literal underbelly of Vienna. Yes, we’re going on a sewer tour. As one does.


Did you know the Third Man with Orson Wells had a scene highlighting Vienna’s sewer? And that they have a tour? Neither did we, until we took it.


In the underground sewer tour, with efflusia flowing past in an eerie purple light and lamps that look like they’re from the 1930s. Shockingly, none too smelly. But it was a little claustrophobic.


Wurstelstand. Wonder what they have-?


More fascinating street art in Vienna. A surprising amount of vandalistic-yet-great artists. We loved the contrast between old and new Austria.


Our ‘safe parking’ for Mork in Vienna was an out-of-the-way park and ride. We ended up finding the coolest place around the corner our last day, replete with a pirate flag and loads of interesting graffiti. One place we’d like to revisit in Vienna.

Those are a few of our moments in Vienna. Have you been? Have any favorite haunts or sites to see? Let us know in the comments below! We’ll keep you posted about our latest adventures, keep your eyes peeled. Armando, Mel, Ziggy and Mork.

    Hey there!

    I love your photos of my hometown, beautiful! 🙂

    I want to add minor things:
    1) you took a picture of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, not St. Patrick’s 😉
    2) made me grin a quite a bit. The parking ticket is not called Handy. Handy is the German word for cell phone and the bottom part of the parking ticket gives instructions on how to pay for parking via your cell phone 😀

    Great website, thank you! 🙂

      Hi Jule, thanks for your heads up! We actually change the name of the Cathedral and regarding the parking ticket, well, as we do not use cell phone was a bit more problematic to figure it out!
