#lteuropa bucket list takedown: bottoms up

We’re as shocked as you are that it took us this long to address one of our best bucket list items: throw back at a pint at a traditional Viennese beer hall. What’s less shocking? We checkity check check checked this one almost immediately. And then again. Many times over: Naturally, it was also a learning experience. And so, here is how you do beer in Vienna: Cheers of choice // A hearty “PROST!” complete with eye contact all the way through your first sip. Should you ignore this important rule of imbibing in Austria, you will be cursed with seven years of bad sex. Most popular beer in Vienna // Ottakringer, the only urban brewery left in…

#LTGoWithOh: bucket list item 8

Oh, travelers. We’ve moved onto our final our bucket list item, WHICH MEANS we’re getting close to the start of our trip! Are you just the most excited to see what we’ll choose for our last two items?! We know, us too. Er, we mean… we have everything carefully pre-selected… Annnnyway.

Due to the ease of the train, we’re obviously already considering a second daytrip to escape  the city and explore the Austrian countryside. Want to take a guess as to where we’re headed? #LTGoWithOh Bucket List Item 8 Hop the train to Salzburg Photo credits found here After the…

#LTGoWithOh bucket list item 7

We hear that Eastern Europe is one of the best destinations for beer lovers. So, it should be no surprise that this next item made it on our #LTgowithoh bucket list: Drink a pint  (or two) of beer in a Viennese Beer Hall. When it comes to drinks, we don’t really discriminate. Unless, like, fruit-flavored vodka is involved because, yuck. Ok, so maybe we do discriminate? ANYWAY. POINT BEING. We don’t exclusively drink red wine, contrary to popular belief. That’s why we’re VERY excited to give the Austrian beer scene a go. While conducting our very important Vienna research, we came across Gosser Bierklinik. Does it not look like a complete gem?! Look at it!…

#LTGoWithOh bucket list item 6

It’s that time, lil travelers! We’re ready to spill our very next #LTGoWithOh bucket list item. Believe it or not, we’re both pretty good in the kitchen. Yes, we tend to think we’re even better depending on the amount of wine consumed. But who doesn’t? One category we haven’t tried to master, however, is pastries. There’s just like, a lot of measuring involved. It seems like it takes a lot of PLANNING, you know? But when in Rome and all of that… Yes, that’s right. We have decided if we’re going to be in the city of strudel HEAVEN, we’re gonna make us some strudel. #LTGoWithOh bucket list item 6: Learn to make a strudel…
