You might know from a previous post that I stayed in Australia für half a year. In Perth to be precise. If you go abroad you might notice that distance gets a whole new meaning. In Western Australia especially. There’s a 3 hours car drive to the next bigger city (and with bigger city I mean with around 30.000 inhabitants) and you drive 4 hours to look at a rock. When I came back I decided to see more of the surrounding of where I live. Abroad I don’t think it’s weird to drive for hours to discover something but in your home country you don’t do that so often, right? Or is it just me. So my decision was to explore more of the regions around Vienna.
This weekend I asked my sister and her boyfriend to tag along to hike on the hills around Vienna. There is this little town called “Mödling” which lies within this hills covered in scots pine woods. It reminds me of Italy or South France but is just an hour drive (not even) from where I live.
My sister took a lot of pictures. That’s why I’m also in some of them.
So what’s the moral of this story: you don’t have to go far to enjoy days exploring and resting your mind.
There were quite a lot of bushes in full bloom and I collected a few branches to put in a vase at home. Wild flowers are the best decoration in my book.
And of course this trip ended with a huge piece of chocolate cake for me and some coffee. It wouldn’t have been a good holiday without it.

Did you explore something new that’s actually right under your nose? Any other ideas for a staycation that I could borrow?
Now. Carry on!
