This is my second post about my trip to Wien. If you haven’t read the first part you can read it here. It’s gonna be huge again, as I want to keep it as a journal of our trip to Vienna, so please excuse me.
On Day 3 of our trip, we took the subway to go to Mariahilferstraße, the most famous shopping street of Vienna. It’s a really long street and you need a lot of time just to cross it, let alone visit many of its shops. The weather was really good (it felt like spring-finally), so we took a walk to see all the stores. In our way up, we visited the H&M store to see if it had the same items, as in Greece, and we ended up buying some of them. After all it was already sales season, and the prices were really low. I bought a pair of boyfriend jean shorts, which are very comfortable, a summer dress, and a shirt-dress I was searching for, for a long time. And all under 50 euros!
After that, we stopped for some coffee, rested, took some pictures, and continued walking.
When I’m in a foreign city, I not only like to visit its museums, and its big city centers and streets but also its small streets which are always more picturesque.
Am I right? So, I was really excited to walk down the streets of the area near Mariahilfer strasse. Tired, but excited.
Walking in flats, makes my feet hurt, as I can feel every little stone under them.
After wandering the nearby streets and seeing their beautiful buildings and churches (which were everywhere), we visited some more stores, until we sat at a little café – restaurant, for some light lunching.
We asked about the transportation we should take to get back to the center, but it seems we got “lost in translation” and got ourselves lost once again, wandering the wrong streets, at a completely different direction.
If I wasn’t that tired I would have been really happy to have seen so many interesting places at once.
We passed by:
were we took some photos while the wind decided to mess up my hair again.
where the Film Festival was being held at the time, so I couldn’t take proper photos of it.
When we reached the University, we finally took the hint, and took the transportation back “home”.
The same night, we took a walk near the 1st canal of Danube, while eating pizza again, and taking really shaky photos of us! 😉
Day 4, started with a walk at the city center, near Stephansplatz, and continued with some coffee and delicious pastries at one of the most famous pastry shops and chocolatiers in Vienna, Demel.
I had the Rosen Makronen, which was delicious, apart from the fact that it had indeed a taste of rose, which I don’t usually like. I thought that the rose part was only for the color and the decoration of it, as it had berries in it, but I was wrong.
My bf had a delicious ice cream, but he didn’t enjoy the unsweetened taste of the whipped cream on it, as we put sweet whipped cream in our desserts, back home. But it seems that it was a general phenomenon in Vienna.
After Demel, we took a small walk at the center again, while taking some photos,
Of course, we had to get on the Riesenrad, or Giant Ferris Wheel, to see the city from above, and take some more photos. The view from it was indeed amazing.
I wanted to wear my flats with my outfit, but it was impossible for my feet to walk one more day in them, for so many hours, so I wore my trusty sneakers. A lot better, but still, painful!
Wearing: Stradivarius top, H&M men’s jeans (borrowed from my bf, who bought them the previous day), Penny Black bag, Asics Onitsuka Tiger sneakers, Donna Karan sunglasses, vintage red bracelet (upper one), and a street vendor bracelet. Oh, and I was also wearing an again borrowed jacket from my friend S. in the 1st pic of me, on Day 4.
The day was completed with another walk at the city center, where we wandered in some cute alleys, including Griechengasse, or Greek street, (where we found a Greek church), and then we headed to Museums Quartier, to visit some friends for drinks. It was a really full day that we enjoyed a lot.
