1.Vienna, Austria: Upon Entry

Vienna was our first taste of European air. It was cold, refreshing and it filled us with excitement. At this point, my Vienna Experience feels like such a long time ago, but I'll try to recall everything I can and share it with you :)

This wasn't the first time I've been to Vienna. It was however the first time I've been here old enough to remember anything. Austria was a beautiful country. Compared to the other stops we've been to so far, Vienna was a bit more urban and  people always seemed to be on the go. Commuting and walking were essential for us and the weather took some getting used to.

From the fashion blogger in me: While preparing for what to pack for this trip, I got so excited at the thought of dressing up for cold weather. Little did I know that the layering pieces I prepared in the Philippines would not suffice for the strong winds.

During our stay, we all had hosts families who generously let us stay in their homes. My host family was super nice! I couldn't help but love them. They were Filipinos too, by the way. Everything was fun and memorable. Now, I have to (try to) wrap my Vienna experience in a nutshell

Hello Vienna! Hurrah!

Sorry. Fashion disaster! I was too cold to care
