laws to travel by – #43


Don’t let it rain on your parade.

In the travel world, rainy days have become synonymous with boring indoor activities like playing cards and museum hopping. We’re here to let all our fun-loving, museum-fearing readers know that inclement weather while traveling does not have to equal boredom.

When we visited Vienna last month, it rained five out of the seven days we were there. No joke. So we had to get creative– one day we learned how to make traditional apple strudel with local culture expert, Marieta from ToursByLocals. When the rain spoiled yet another day of plans to walk through Vienna’s vineyards, we hunkered down in one of the city’s best known heurigers, Maly’s. This day turned out to be one of, if not the most memorable days of our trip.

The next time you’re traveling and the gray clouds roll in, don’t panic. Just get creative.

    Have had some great days on the road in the rain. While I love it when my pictures are of perfect and sunny days, I have been known to enjoy taking pictures of raindrops and water patterns, as well as the colourful umbrellas of those who don’t let the rain stop them! Rainy days don’t only have to be inside!
