Burgenland Austria

“Gliding along on a electric-powered bicycle somewhere on the road to the historic bridge of Andau between Austria and Hungary, I realized that I was having way more fun than I thought I would on this trip.

I had a vision implanted years ago on my young cinematic mind from the movie ‘The Sound of Music’ that Austria consisted only of one snow-capped mountain, one meadow, and an endless cast of Julie Andrews lookalikes.

In Burgenland it was flat and warm. Farmland and vineyards stretched out on either side. I was in the Seewinkel region on the road to freedom.” Check out my new story Burgenland: Wining and Dining on the Sunny Side of Austria on Gonomad.com
