Travelling is always exciting. Stepping out of that door and hopping on that plane or train – there’s nothing that can beat that excitement. Knowing what’s ahead of you will surely bring the butterflies into your stomach, especially if you are travelling for the first time. But most of the time, the excitement begins the moment you start packing your bags – and it’s so easy to overlook packing things you didn’t even think you may need.
To make it easier for you, the first time traveler, here is what you always need to remember to pack when going to Vienna:
You should never, ever go to Vienna without making reservations first. You may think it’s a piece of cake to get checked into a hotel, the opera or major touring acts, but you’ll be surprised to see how fast those things can sell. My advice would be to book your spot beforehand so that you don’t miss out on the best parts of Vienna. Plus, you’ll have fewer things to worry about if you see those tickets already in your bag.
Many people go to Vienna packed for summer only to discover that it’s almost winter down there. The weather can easily drop a few degrees, so make sure that you pack a jacket, scarves and a few warm clothes along with that tank top and cute sundresses.
Don’t believe for a second that you will be able to handle walking tours if you are wearing high heels or uncomfortable shoes. Pack a few sneakers or comfortable walking shoes that won’t have you stopping every five minutes to rest your feet. You’re going there to enjoy your vacation, not to worry about blisters.
Depending on where you are coming from, you may need power adapters to charge your electrical appliances. For example, Austria uses 220 volts plugs, which aren’t recommended for America’s 110-volt chargers. If you don’t want to fry your electricals, remember to pack adapters.
Vienna is a place in which you can easily get lost, which is why it is recommended that you take a map of the place with you. Check the touristic sights that you have visited there, and also mark where you are staying. It will be easier for you to keep check of your surroundings.
You’re going to want to remember the places you visit, so remember to pack a camera. Unless you are a ‘real’ photographer, you will not need a professional camera; however, if you want clear pictures o the landscape, you will want to bring a good camera with you.
If you wish to relish a perfect vacation in Vienna, you should certainly consider the assistance of professional Vienna airport transfer services. If you book your transfers before arriving at the airport, you can obtain more convenient rates, plus, you can save plenty of time, you would usually spend waiting in line for a cab. Vienna attracts numerous tourists, as you’d expect, so, this is the ideal solution for the savvy traveler. A friendly driver will greet you at the hour of your arrival, and you’ll reach your destination right away. An excellent solution for large groups, or individuals traveling solo.
Last but not least, pack your excitement! The first time you visit a place will always be the most memorable, so remember to pack as much as you need for as long as you stay! Don’t pack too much, though – you’ll have to carry it, after all.
