“You have to see the Alps. Or mountains, at least, when you’re in Austria.”
Yeah, yeah, okay. I’m not all about the mountains like this friend is. However, I decided that I should do it for her. So Ms. J, this trip to Innsbruck is for you. And I plan on taking lots of photos.
“Located in the broad valley between high mountains, the so-called North Chain in the Karwendel Alps (Hafelekarspitze, 2,334 metres or 7,657 feet) to the north, and the Patscherkofel (2,246 m or 7,369 ft) and Serles (2,718 m or 8,917 ft) to the south.” Thanks Wikipedia!
For now, I’m beginning my travel prep with some hardcore Pinterest time (follow me!). I’ll share with you a few of my favorite pins here (but first I’ll read the tips to see if I think they’re helpful or not)!
As I was scrolling through Pinterest, this picture kept grabbing my attention but the “with kids” part made me move away. Until I finally clicked. I’m glad I did. I found the following website post really helpful!
And let’s be honest. Everyone loves a pastel tourist map like this one. I’m hopeless at maps (and see, I’m still traveling), but I like these ones.
So now, I’m off to airbnb.com to check out possible places to stay for a few nights. I actually really love airbnb, and my experiences with them over the last few months have been so good. I like feeling as though I really live in a place rather than staying in an unoriginal hotel room that lacks all character and personality. If you’ve been too nervous to check it out, do it now! I always read the reviews as I’m trying to choose a place.
