Viennese Winter is coming

I can’t believe it’s been almost 3 months since I moved to this wonderland city. It feels so weird to think about my first week here and how I arrived or whenever I look back at what happened at the beginning of the year. Vienna still continues to surprise me and I’m afraid and happy at the same time that probably I won’t have enough time to discover every hidden gem in this city.

We’re in December and the spectacular Christmas Markets are now in full swing. The cool thing about Vienna is that you don’t have just one Christmas Market in center, you have 5, 6 or 40 (as Google says) Christmas markets that are spread all over the city. No wonder why everyone says that Vienna has the best Christmas Market in Europe. Once you see the most spectacular ones, you will get lost in the mirage of the Christmas lights and the smell of the famous mulled wine.

It is very cold now and I’m afraid that it will get even colder as we go towards January, but I’m prepared, as I’ve always been. I miss home though, I miss my old friends even though I got new ones now and sometimes I even miss Romania (yes, you can gasp now). I’m not yet in a good relationship with the language but I have to admit that I’ve learned a few basic words since I arrived but still, German isn’t for me.

I love making plans and the new year will bring new exciting stuff, new amazing trips and a lot of fresh challenges for sure. I can now confirm that at the end of January I’ll be visiting Dublin for the first time in my life and at the beginning of February I’ll visit a country/city that has a special meaning for me and I just can’t wait for this adventure to begin. Stay tuned! πŸ™‚

Growing up in a small city, I never thought I would get the chance to travel the world, yet dreams can always come true. You just need to be dedicated, passionate, and always eager to try new things and never step away from being yourself.
