#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’re getting close to the end of our bucket list 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. Hallstatt has already been added to our list as one surefire daytrip from Vienna, but honestly? 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…

#LTGoWithOh bucket list item 7

When it comes to drinks, we don’t really discriminate. Unless, like fruit-flavored vodka is involved because, yuck. POINT BEING: we don’t exclusively drink red wine, contrary to popular belief. We hear that Eastern Europe is one of the best destinations for beer lovers, so naturally this item made it on our bucket list. Drink a pint  (or two) of beer in a Viennese Beer Hall.

#LTGoWithOh bucket list item 6

Believe it or not, we’re both pretty good in the kitchen (and tend to think we’re even better depending on the amount of wine consumed). One category we haven’t tried to master, however, is pastries. There’s just like, a lot of measuring involved and it seems like it takes a lot of PLANNING, you know? But when in Rome and all of that…so we decided if we’re going to be in the city of strudel HEAVEN, we’re gonna make us some strudel. Learn to make a strudel. Photo courtesy of Captain and Clark We know the basics. Sorta. Flaky, golden crust, fruit filling, topped with powdered sugar. Right? Luckily for us, though probably not for…
