this is the time we got locked in a dungeon

Though our #LTeuropa reunion recaps are slowly coming to an end, we still have one story left to share. It’s a harrowing tale…one of terror, loss, and definite possibilities for ghost sightings. It’s the time we got locked in the dungeon of our Go with Oh apartment. We’ve gone back and forth on how to tell this story–which has since been referred to only as “the incident.” Some of us still haven’t fully healed from that night. Some of us never will… But finally, we’re ready. We’re going to tell you our story, and we’re going to do it the best way we know how. Via GIF. It all started after our BBQ. With one…

#lteuropa bucket list takedown: throw an american barbecue

When we decided to hunker down in Vienna for a full seven days–which is a lot of time to stay in one place in the Lazy Travelers’ universe–we knew if we didn’t come up with a list of things to occupy ourselves, we’d most likely spend our days and nights drinking too much wine and eating too many carbs.

Turns out this party was meant to be, because on the day of the party, the sun graced us with its presence…

Though we had originally planned to dedicate two days to daytrips outside of the city, we just enjoyed the slow-paced process of eating and drinking our way through Vienna far too much. This meant that we were running out of time before our departure for Prague, and needed to consolidate. After briefly researching car rentals (i.e. making the hubs call Hertz and fumble through a very awkward “sprechen du deutsch?” situation),…

#lteuropa bucket list takedown: wine country

We had high hopes for Vienna’s wine country. However, on the day we decided to tackle this bucket list item, it was cold and rainy, like most of the days we spent in Vienna. In spite of the gray skies, we bundled up (read: bought sweatshirts en route and wore sneakers because they were the warmest footwear option we had) and made our way from the Inner Stadt to Kahlenberg, a mountain located in the 19th district of Vienna that’s speckled with small vineyards along its hills. Turns out, touring Vienna’s vineyards really does work better on a day that it’s not downpouring. So, instead of a leisurely afternoon stroll through the vineyard hills, we…
