So, we found a super cool "hotel" to stay in. Let's just call it "Glorified Camping". I found these quite some time ago, but never really realized where they were... Or ... WHAT they were.
The first day we arrived, we got our stuff in the tube, and then headed out to Linz to get something to eat. And, buy a hair brush because I thought I didn't pack one - I did... So I spent 5euro on a stupid hair brush when I didn't need it! Haha. Ah well. Husband was pretty understanding about it! He's a good guy.
We found a random place called Keinzel Wirsthaus Bar - im Alten Rathaus. It was a really old place - we saw the prices - but did it anyway. We were desperate! Oh, and it was worth it! I had the most AMAAAAZING blueberry strudel! *drool* We spent way too much money there (45 euro). That was the most we spent on food. But it was worth it! So good! If you're ever in Linz, you gotta eat there. This was when I first realized that the Austrians were so willing to speak English with us. I mean, we try very hard to speak Deutsche (German), but sometimes I get all... accckkk not understanding and I'm like "es tut mier leid! Spreche sie Englisch?" (I'm sorry, do you speak English?). And I was happy to find that he was like "OF COURSE!". Haha, much different than here in Germany.
The next day, we headed out to Vienna - not showered! Our first stop was the HundertWasser haus. Husband surprised me with this because I had mentioned that it seemed really cool. So he made it the first stop! Such a sweet hubband! Luckily we found a parking spot RIGHT there! And it was FREE! There's pretty much no free parking around our place in Germany, except on Sundays, and after 6pm haha, so that was a great thing for Vienna!
I didn't really feel like I was outside of Germany, they all spoke Deutsche, so it felt the same to me. I found that the Austrians were super friendly! I would definitely go back!
We definitely had a lot of fun in Ottensheim, Linz, and Vienna. I would totally go again! It was kind of hard in these touristy places with Koodge, he really enjoys pulling on the leash. But whenever we went inside to eat or grab some coffee they were really okay with Koodge being there. Some people commented on his size, but... really he's only 60 lbs and only comes up to my knees. Not too big, so I just laughed with them. Whatever.
Our next stop was Salzburg. But, I had so much fun in Salzburg that it deserves it's own post! (I took TOO many photos there!).
