Once we decided upon a trip to Austria, I bought two guidebooks as I always do and started reading up on Austria and highlighting all the places we would visit in Vienna, Salzburg, and beyond. But as I started researching flights I found a trip to Austria that year was out of our financial reach. So now I have two out-of-date guidebooks, one of which is partially highlighted with a sad little page corner turned down halfway through where my research abruptly ended.
|The folded page is a sad reminder of the abrupt end of my Austria trip planning.|
If I was lucky enough to be chosen by GowithOh to be a guest tester, Romeo and I would travel to Vienna and stay in the perfect apartment I found described as a “sunny apartment with balcony in the city centre.”

As you have probably noticed, I love food and local markets. What attracted me to this GowithOh apartment the most is its proximity to Vienna’s largest open-air market, Naschmarkt. Since the apartment is equipped with a small kitchen, we would be able to purchase treats at the market and enjoy them during our stay.
The apartment is located in the fourth district, Wieden, which is in the historic center of Vienna just outside the Inner City. Many of the city’s attractions are within a few minutes’ walking distance, and a metro station is just a couple blocks away. The apartment would make the perfect home base from which to visit the regal Hofburg palace, which served as the winter home of the Hapsburgs, and St. Stephen’s Cathedral with its brightly colored tiled roof. We could even see an opera performed in one of the most important opera houses in the world, Wiener Staatsoper.
There are so many places in and around Vienna I would love to visit and the trip that never happened deserves to become a reality.
