When the Chill is On, Think Austria

It’s been chilly here in Europe since I arrived a month ago. I was thinking the other day, “where would I best like to spend time when it’s cold outside?” The answer that popped into my head was “Austria.” It was such a big pop that it cause some other things in my head to fall out. So bear with me (or bare with me, which is more fun I think).

In any case, when it’s really cold outside I always think of stopping in a Viennese cafe for some kind of big cakey thing the Viennese are noted for and a cup of steaming hot coffee with maybe a dollop of cream floating on top.

I’m not a fan of Opera, but I like the idea of walking into a famous opera house in a greatcoat and top hat to sit in a warm theater box heated by the body heat of thousands of adoring fans (of the opera, of course).

Than I’d return to my apartment late at night, perhaps pouring myself a few drops of Schnapps to take the chill off.

Vienna Vacation Rental ApartmentWhile you might think that I live like a king with my endless supply of Schnapps and everything,  I really don’t have a lot of Euros at my disposal. After all, the dollar is near worthless, so the sum of Euros you get for a whole bundle of them is paltry and getting paltrier.

So I’d rent a small, one-room apartment. With a balcony, of course. The balcony would remind me of the opera, or at least those operas in which some character flings himself off of one in despair over losing his lover to a shady character with a pencil thin mustache.

The apartment would cost me less than a hotel, and so I’d have to give up the chocolates they put on the pillows, but I can deal with such loses because the apartment shown, the Wien holiday get away, comes with an owner “who can obtain opera, concert or theatre tickets on request.” You can also get theater tickets, I suppose.

Check it out. Or check out other Austria Vacation Rentals. You can get chocolates anywhere, you don’t need them on your pillow.
