Anniversary in Austria

Originally Sean and I had planned on staying in Austria for Friday and driving back late Saturday evening, however, as I mentioned in the previous post, we were stupid American tourists and left our car in a garage that was closed all weekend. It turned out fine though, because we really enjoyed the extra days we stayed in Innsbruck.

Once we got to Innsbruck, we checked into our hotel: The Romantik, which I really liked. The first night we stayed there we had a much nicer room then the second and third nights we stayed there. The hotel had an AWESOME breakfast. In Italy, the breakfast consists of coffee and a something like a crossiant. In Austria it was meats, smoked salmon, cheeses, fresh fruit, assorted rolls and breads, cereal, yogurt, juice, champagne, etc. I was in HEAVEN!

Most of the weekend we walked around the old town, looking at the historic places, popping into shops and eating at restaurants. I ate so much this weekend. So much in fact, that it's not even funny. Sushi, Indian food, two or three kebabs, apple struedel....the list goes on and on. Don't worry, I took pictures of all of it so you guys don't feel like you're missing out on anything.

I LOVED Austria! Now don't get me wrong, Italy is a cool place to live, but Austria is awesome. Everyone was so friendly and food was to die for. I loved the mountains too. Breathtaking!

The only thing we didn't do that I was wanting to go see was the Alpenzoo, which is the highest altitude zoo in Europe if not the world.

Overall it was a wonderful place to celebrate Sean's birthday and our anniversary. I highly recommend it.

Look for pics soon!

I can't believe y'all did that but it is really funny and at least you were stuck somewhere stunning! We went to Innsbruck last summer and liked it a lot. I just remember being so hot and the no A.C. killed me! I can't wait to see pictures!

Happy Anniversary!!

I would have wished you one sooner, but we were in the middle of moving and such. No more podunk. Seriously benning is amazing. I almost cried when I saw just the outside of the PX. I couldn't stop smiling.

Still sorta miss podunk though. I feel like we're just on a vacation and are going back soon. Weird.

OOOH! The breakfast alone makes me want to visit! We're debating about places to visit when he gets back from deployment and this sounds like our kind of place!

I'm glad you had a fantastic time.
