3 days in Austria : Day 2

Waking up with a view is the best day to start a day, isn’t it? Well, that’s how I started my second day in Austria.

This was the view from the bedroom

On the saturday as it’s check out/check in day at the lodge, my friend had to look after the 6 months baby of the family as, you know, she’s an aupair, that’s her job haha. But it wasn’t an obstacle for us to enjoy the day and go exploring! Quite the opposite actually.

You know my love for kids. I loved being around Philippa during the day, playing with her and receiving her biggest smiles… sorry Rosie, she loves me more now haha. She is such a sweet baby; calm, smiley and she loves me… I mean I couldn’t have expected more!

What being an aupair of baby in Austria looks like

After breakfast and getting ready for the cold weather, we took the bus to go to Mittleberg. From there, we did a big walk to go back to Baad. It wasn’t snowing like it was the day before. Actually, it wasn’t snowing at all. It was cloudy. But clear enough to have a stunning view of the mountains. We walked for a bit more than 2 hours I think. And I can’t still get over what I saw. Austrian beauty is really something you should see at least once in your life. The vibe there is so special, almost precious.

At first, I wanted to apologise for the big amount of pictures there’s gonna be in that blog post but actually, I’m not even sorry haha. I had to capture that beauty, even though pictures don’t make justice to it and you really should go and explore Austria yourself.

I tried new poses… I might need to stick to the usual ones next time.

After the walk, we came back to the lodge to have lunch. Then it was play time with baby in the play room!

And then off we went for another walk! I actually don’t remember exactly where we went. Let’s just say somewhere in Austria near Baad hahah.

We didn’t go out that night as we were quite tired after all that walking and we just stayed in, watched some movies and chatted for hours and that was just what we needed.


Walking through a country you’ve never been before is for me the best way to discover it. You might get lost and discover things you didn’t expect. Well, this time I didn’t get lost as I was with my friend Rosie who lived there for 3 months (as I’m writing this, she has just arrived in Australia for at least 9 months by the way!!!), which was great as she knows all the great walks with stunning views etc.

I think the last day was my favourite one as we’ve done ‘crazy’ things that you’ll discover in another blog post. Stay tuned x

With love, Anaïs

    Austria looks beautiful. One thing I want to know is did you find it an expensive country to visit?

    1. It is beautiful indeed!
      So basically, I’ve been quite lucky about money for that trip as I had a friend working as an aupair in a lodge, I had free accomodation, breakfast and lunch. I’ve done a bit of grocery shopping for dinner and it wasn’t expensive. But keep in mind that I currently live in Switzerland where basically everything i super expensive so in Austria, I found everything cheap – compared to Switzerland hahah!

  13. Austria looks so stunning, wow! You make me want to drop everything and travel the world to see these beautiful places! x

    1. It is stunning indeed!!! Thank you for such a lovely comment Hannah xx And travel as soon as you got the opportunity, I’m sure you won’t regret it!
