After exploring the airport you can just sit near the fountain that I called "The Stone Fountain" and relax.
Fondest memory: Arrival of the group of Ukrainian educators from Odessa by Fokker airplane.
It was a pleasant flight and a nice time at the airport during my first visit.

For such a busy and big city like Wien, you can pretty much expect that it can't be perfectly clean, but...
But rally, Wien it's impressive, so clean, no paper on the floor, no cigarettes, nothing, it seems that people are working all day in every part of the city to keep it as clean as possible, and probably it's really like that.
Trash cans and ash trays are everywhere, so you have no excuse not to use them, keep the city clean as it is.
Something i found really good in Wien, are the free water distributors around the touristic places.
This is really a good idea, specially for such hot days like when i was there.
People sometimes want a bit o water not the whole bottle and in those distributors you can choose how much water you want, so just grab as much as you want and continue the visit to the city, always refreshed.
Apfelstrudel is a traditional pastry of Austria and a popular dish in many countries that once belonged to the Austro-Hungarian empire. It is the most widely known kind of strudel.
Well if you like sweet, don't miss that, you are inside the country who is really specialist in making that, in every way, so taste it, well the portions are usually pretty big, so enjoy it and lick your mustache :)
Well this is another specialty, that you don't have to miss.
Sachertorte is a chocolate cake, invented by Franz Sacher in 1832 for Klemens Wenzel von Metternich in Vienna, Austria. It is one of the most famous Viennese culinary specialties.
The trademark for the "Original Sachertorte" was registered by the Hotel Sacher, which was built in 1876 by the son of Franz Sacher.
Nobody knows the real recipe because is well kept secret... You can imagine why.
It consists of two layers of dense, not overly sweet chocolate cake with a thin layer of apricot jam in the middle and dark chocolate icing with shreds of chocolate on the top and sides. It is traditionally served with whipped cream without any sugar in it.

Schwechater Stadtpark...One of the very nice parks in Schwechat and very near to the apartment we stayed in. Honestly, If you are a nature lover, Wien can never be boring for you because there is a blends of modern life with nature, shopping and more.
To get to Schwechater Stadtpark, take the train S7 from wien landstrasse to schwechat, walk up the sendnergasse to hauptplatz, cross hauptplatz, enter loewengasse and follow the way to the park.
Favorite thing: While at the Naschmarket, Mum bought whole lots and lots of lavender. I thought the change in weather has affected her state of mind (Sorry mum), But thanks to her after the trip, Our home has been smelling good for months. A good natural air freshener that will last for month, If you are from Asia like us, you can also give it away as souvenirs to family & friends. Once fully dried, the lavender can be drank as a herbal tea…so nothing goes to waste!
Favorite thing: We were strolling by a canal near central Wien when we stumbled upon a strange big orange box. After some questions, It was actually some sort of a resort with swimming pool, restaurant and a club. Very cool facilities inside a strange looking ship! But who wants to take a swim in there when you can swim at the Danube? :)
While walking around central Wien, We stumbled upon a shop selling some delicious looking chocolates as souvenirs! A nice gift for a loved one, The chocolate name, Sachertorte sounds expensive though.
Fondest memory: Unique things and some vehicles that are "extinct" in our place.
Favorite thing: On most of the areas of grass in the centre of Vienna, there are warnings on how much it would cost if your dog fouls on the grass. These fines are different on each section of grass. Most tourists do not take their pets with them on holiday. If you do shop around and get the best deal.
Favorite thing: This card costs €16.90 for 3 days. It gives you unlimited public transportation and discounts in many museums and sites. If you are a student, be aware: the student discount is usually greater than the one you get with this card! Because of this, do the math, and see if it will be worth it before you buy, as its only value will be for the transportation.
