A really good place for some refreshments this arvo. Having visitors is great for getting out and about in the city, and today we found ourselves in need of feeding and watering when we were close to the Museumsquartier. Rather than trying to find a reasonable place around Hofburg, we decided to head to MQ. This cafe is nice, fairly ok priced (though not budget), and had nice teas and other beverages. I was also fascinated by the little dollhouse displays on the wall – super cute!
This is a pub in the 3rd district that I’ve been wanting to go to for AGES. It looks quite inconspicuous, but they have a really kickass selection of beers on tap and bottled, just check out their drinks menu. Some day soon I WILL CHECK IT OUT!!!
As some of you may have noticed, an icon popped up in the side-bar a couple of days ago with a link to InterNations. I found out that they have a blogroll there, recommending blogs from expats to people considering moving to a city. After a very smooth process, I have now been featured in the Vienna-section! Yay, supercool! 😀 If you would like to read my interview, you can click on this link.
Hopefully my blog is now of use to people wondering what Vienna is really like. There is definitely more to the place than all the spectacular tourist views, but that just makes it even more exciting to come here. Once you’ve checked off all the 'must see' things on your list, there is another layer of events and attractions to be found behind the tourist scenes.
I've been registered with InterNations for about three years now… probably a bit more than that. I haven't fully capitalised on all that they offer though. They have a lot of events, and there are so many great people there. Here in Vienna they have two get-togethers every month, usually one clubbing and one 'drinks', or sometimes two clubbing events. I’d hugely recommend InterNations to people who are new somewhere, and who want to find some like-minded people. Not just for people in Vienna, but all over the world! You can go to http://www.internations.org and check out if they have a chapter in the city where you live. The sign-up process also prevents the site from being run over by creeps. Big plus! 🙂
