I’m not really a big birthday person – unless it’s a quite “monumental” year such as 18, 21, 25, I rarely even have the energy to plan up a big celebration (although always feel the pressure to celebrate from my friends!) This year, for the first time, I decided to spend my birthday abroad after Levi suggested we hit Madrid during Christmas time. Well – kind of… I spent my actual birthday in the office (something I’ll probably refrain from doing again – although my team were lovely enough to buy me a birthday cake, working through your birthday is not ideal). However, the weekend following my birthday, Levi and I packed our suitcases to jet to Madrid for a city break.
St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna
I have just come back from a short stay in Vienna – February was meant to be a clear month from travelling given a January ski trip and a birthday trip planned next month, but last minute Levi got a gig to represent his work place and speak at a conference in Vienna – it was was going to be on Valentine’s Day – so it all just sort of made sense and slotted perfectly into place as the perfect excuse for a trip away. A few weeks of planning and we were off. It was only a very short 2-day round trip but it was still great to get a taste of such a beautiful city and also have a break from the UK – so, if you’re like me, with just a bit of time to spare, here’s how you can utilise a short stay in Vienna…
*As it was such a short trip (and as I err… forgot) – I didn’t bring my DSLR. In which case – enjoy these iPhone 6s photos. I’ll ideally be getting my hands on an X soon, which means better quality 24/7 % of the time, yay.
